HTC One M8

Our Ratings :   9.5/10

Looks: My god, it just blows you away. The premium Brushed metal finish is an absolute pleasure to touch and use. I am sure this one reason alone will move a lot of potential buyers from alternate offerings of Samsung, LG, Apple etc.
The Sense 6 interface is by far one of the best manufacturer interfaces. Having used the Google Play interface, I would still rate this as more personal and as smooth, if not better. But yes, the android updates may not be as timely as in the Google play editions.Blinkfeed is really amazing and easily replaces all your News and Social Networking dedicated apps. It's fast and easily accessible.Camera: Yes, it is probably one of the sore aspects of the phone. However, for casual photographs and such it is more than sufficient. Well, if you can get over the lower pixel count, it does produce decent pics. And ofcourse, the "ultrapixel" size is bigger than that of other manufacturers, so that helps too.Lack of aspects like Heartbeat sensor and Fingerprint sensor. I pondered over this aspect, but it actually is not a big give away. If you want to compensate for the lack of hearbeat sensor that the competition offers or if you are a big fitness freak, you have the option to buy dedicated trackers like fitbit etc. Btw, Fitbit app comes pre-installed. Probable HTC thought this may offset the absence of sensor a little bit. And Fingerprint sensor? Seriously? Big deal. Screen: One word. Brilliant. Let's just Apple does not come up with a retina display phone with the. Otherwise, the One M8 is all set.
For a great phone to live with and be excited to hold and use everyday, look no further. Having used a lot of other phones in the market. I can confidently say that no other phone comes close to providing such a rich and personalized experience as the One M8. It is the One and Only.Granted, HTC has nowhere near the marketing power of Samsung and Apple so sales may not be THAT high. But, once you have used a HTC phone, it is difficult not to see how glaringly ugly the rest of the phones are.
