The HTC One (M8) is now official surprisingly exactly nobody thanks to the volley of leaks surrounding the handset, but don't let that put you off as the new HTC One is still a very promising device. HTC has pulled a real trump card out of its pocket when it comes to the HTC One (M8) release date, as it has put the handset on sale in the UK on the same day as it was officially announced March 25 & Coming To India on……
The new HTC One price comes as no surprise, this is a high-end smartphone with the latest tech under the hood and thus it commands a high price tag. You'll find a slightly larger screen on the new HTC One, with the Taiwanese firm bumping if from 4.7 inches on its predecessor to 5 inches on the latest model. While screen size has increased, resolution remains the same at 1080 x 1920, which means the HTC One (M8) has a slightly lower pixel density of 441ppi versus the 469ppi on the original One.
That said, you're unlikely to see and real difference between the two handsets in terms of quality and the Super LCD3 technology ensures colors are bright and viewing angles are generous. To differentiate the new One from the old One, HTC is referring to the just-announced model as the all new HTC One or the HTC One (M8). M8, by the way, might refer to the fact that this is the eight flagship smartphone that HTC has launched. Last year’s HTC One model, as you might have guessed, has been referred to as the M7.
The new Sense 6 software atop Android 4.4 KitKat is sleek and elegant, kept humming by a quad-core Snapdragon 801 chipset clocked at 2.5GHz in Asia and 2.3GHz elsewhere, as well as 2GB of DDR2 RAM
HTC’s Duo Camera introduces several great new features and the M8′s camera software is better than ever, but the quality of photos captured by the handset’s UltraPixel camera remains a weak spot on HTC’s flagship phone. Washed out colors remain my largest gripe, though the clarity of photos captured by the One also lags top rival devices, and photos often have an abundance of noise.
HTC is not worried about the megapixel race. Instead, the company stuck with its 4-megapixel “UltraPixel” technology and focused on two things: Improving the quality of the images captured, rather than the size, and adding unique new features to the camera experience.
That's up from 2.1MP on the original One, and it's also capable of recording full HD video and comes equipped with HDR too. It's round the back though where the biggest difference is, with the HTC One (M8) sporting two cameras instead of the traditional one.
For the camera buffs among you the main camera's vital statistics are a sensor size of 1/3", f/2.0 aperture and a 28mm lens. One of those editing options is U-focus, which allows you to re-focus your image after taking it - allowing you to select a particular object in the near, mid or background to highlight.
HTC One (M8) has a New features is called “Motion Launch,” and it is made possible by HTC’s new sensors. This feature allows the user to pick up his or her phone with the display off and perform one of several tap, swipe or motion gestures to perform specific commands.
- Picking up the phone in portrait orientation and tapping twice on the display will turn the screen on.
- Swiping from left to right will turn the screen on and go open BlinkFeed.
- Swiping from right to left will open the main home screen.
- Swiping from the bottom up will open whatever screen the phone was on when it went to sleep.
- Swiping the top down will open voice dialing.
- Picking up the phone in landscape orientation and pressing the volume button will open the camera app.
- Picking up the phone while it’s ringing and putting it to the side of your head will answer the call.
it's got a pretty intriguing case to go along with it. The Dot View case does a few things at once. First and foremost, it protects your phone in that folio style that everyone seems to be doing these days. And it does so while still allowing information to come through, and while allowing you to interact with your phone, but in a much different way.
A magnet on the front cover of the case (it's hidden behind the HTC logo) enables the case mode. And once the phone recognizes what's going on, it'll flash the time and weather on the display — and it looks like a series of dots shining through — when you hit the power button or double-tap on the front. Very cool. Adjust the volume with the flap closed, and you'll see that, too. Get a phone call? You'll see who's calling, and you can swipe up or down to accept or reject the call. Or, just hold the phone up to your ear — with the case still closed — to take the call. Swipe to launch voice dialing, too. Pretty cool stuff.
