The One M8 is the latest flagship smartphone from HTC. Upgraded from last year's model, the new One carries a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC with Adreno 330 graphics, 2GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of flash storage. The M8 also packs a 4MP, f/2.0 UltraPixel camera with a 28mm lens plus a one-third-inch BSI sensor capable of absorbing 330 percent more photons, equating to a shooter that offers some pretty nifty post-production effects.

The HTC One M8 is a truly fantastic smartphone, and its few shortcomings can easily be overlooked in favor of a solid feature set in a premium body. Well done to HTC for once again showing what its engineers can do.

I wanted to start out this review by saying that I went into it expecting HTC to repeat kind of what they did with the HTC One M7. In many aspects, they certainly did and in others they fell into the very same trap that most of their competitors have....

Dynamic Range is almost identical between the two phones, and close enough that you will not hear a difference. Crosstalk is a major difference as the Samsung is -20 dB worse here than the HTC One M8. You are likely to hear sound from one channel in the...

Amazing. I love the HTC One M8. It feels great and is build like a tank. It's not water resistant or dust resistant like other newer phones coming on to the market, but I've never had an issue with either of those. I guess I have used my phone in light...

As its predecessor, the Sony Xperia Z2 is an excellent cameraphone and a worthy competitor to the best shooters out there. Sony's flagship performed commendably in most of our tests, outrunning all of the challengers but the Galaxy S5. Failures...

We knew that the Huawei Ascend P7 and the Oppo Find 7a, along with their 13MP cameras, had plenty of potential, but we didn't expect them to be this good. We were surprised by all the detail that the Find 7a captured in its photos, while the images...

HTC may have been asleep at the wheel in recent years, but few can argue that its latest flagship phone ticks all the right boxes; a great design, excellent software and enough power to keep the vast majority of users perfectly content. The only Android device that can realistically better this is 2015's Nexus, but for now, if you're looking to join Google's mobile party, this would be our preferred device.

The HTC One M8 is a difficult handset to judge. On the one hand, you have the paradox of a device where the emphasis is very much on the good-looking exterior, and yet it seems too fragile to survive for long without cladding it in a protective case –...
