The New HTC One (M8) has Arrived!

HTC has finally announced its best phone ever, the HTC One (M8). The M8 has taken the crown for most leaked phone of all time—EV Leaks  leaked images and an entire video walkthrough of the phone’s case. Everything we anticipated about the phone has come to be, and it has come out as a great Samsung Galaxy S5 competitor. Below is our overview of the HTC One (Or is it One Two?) Call it what you will.

Design

The first major design change from the original One is onscreen buttons. The M8 also comes with the default three-button Android arrangement rather than the simpler two-button (Home and Back) arrangement. The M8 still has a unibody aluminum chassis like the previous edition did. However, this time it is a 90:10 ratio of metal to plastic, resulting in a device that feels better in the hand. The edges aren’t sharp like a Macbook. In fact, they’re rounded, keeping consumer comfort in mind. With this design choice, HTC is leading the pack metal handsets. In addition, the screen size has been increased by a little less than an inch. The M8 still looks very similar to its predecessor, but its colors are muted, and the design modernized.
