The New HTC ONE M8: Features!
Since the new HTC ONE M8 has been released in the past weeks it’s time to offer to you its characteristics so if you plan to buy it you can see all its avantages:
• Android 4.4.2 (KitKat)
• 4G LTE, including 700 MHz support (coming to Telstra in 2015)
• Qualcomm 2.5 GHz quad-core Krait CPU / 2GB RAM / Adreno 330 graphics
• 1920x1080p Super LCD3 display
• microUSB v2.0 (with MHL and TV-out support) / microSD slot up to 128GB
• Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v4.0
• 5-megapixel front camera, dual 4-megapixel rear camera
• Non-removable 2600 mAh battery
• 146.4 x 70.6 x 9.4 mm, 160 gm
The design of the new HTC ONE M8 is elegant and sleek and it weighs only 160 grams thanks to its unibody aluminum design. It is a little bit taller than the average 5-inch Android smartphone to make space for one of its outstanding features: remarkable BoomSound speakers above and below the display. Exceptionally rich bass and high-end clarity is offered by the two speakers when listening to music without distorting at full volume, which according to HTC is 25% louder then the previous model.
You can try to convince to the sound quality when you turn the phone on its side to watch a movie and the stereo speakers point straight at you.
At first sight, the lowly 4-megapixel rear camera maybe seems like a disadvantage, but don’t dismiss it too quickly: there’s more to image quality than resolution. The smartphone’s camera relies on a larger sensor than other smartphones. As a consequence you get cleaner pictures with less “noise” in the shadows that is evident in poor lightning conditions. It is also possible to capture 1080p video at 60 frames per second. There is also a built-in 360 degree panorama mode and a ‘dual shot mode’ that can display the view from the front and rear cameras picture in picture.
On the other hand the 5-megapixel front camera takes really sharp selfies allowed by the sensible 3-second countdown feature.
So will the new HTC ONE M8 be your next choice? 🙂
