The Positives:

HTC One M8 battery is powered by 3000mAh which is able to last for an entire day. Unlike other HTC models, this mobile phone managed to bring a better quality battery for its users.

  • A wonderful design with full metal body. It gives a premium feeling to the user.
  • The sense UI is super smooth and very responsive.
  • Its 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor has a splendid performance. The mobile phone responds at a blazing speed to the end user. Such a fast speed makes the mobile phone more likable. This kind of speed helps in completing the tasks quickly.
  • The front facing speaker is a new feature introduced by HTC that is appreciated by almost all purchasers. The audio delivered is outstanding. With a good audio quality, the users can watch movies in a much more easy way.
  • Some users have experienced gaming as well which is stated to be smooth enough.

The Negatives:

This mobile phone does not support the finger print unlocking feature. Customers these days often put forward a requirement of getting things done easily. Finger print unlocking feature makes it easy to have an access to your mobile phone.

  • A common problem suffered by the users is heating up. HTC models have this issue in most of their mobile phones which is not helpful for customers at all.
  • The camera feature is not up to the mark. Its 4-Ultrapixel primary camera and 5 megapixels front camera produces unclear pictures. HTC One M8 is not a good choice if you want the mobile phone for snapping photos. It fails to capture sharp photos. Also, there is no dedicated camera button for capturing photos.
  • A drawback seen in this mobile phone is that it is a bit big that makes it difficult to reach to the power button situated at the top.
  • Mobile phones nowadays must be water proof. HTC One M8 lacks in this feature. A mobile phone in this era without a water proof quality can be dangerous.
  • HTC One M8 has a fitted non removable battery. It has become a disadvantage for professional users because they tend to keep a spare battery with them in severe cases. Since the mobile phone has an enclosed design, the battery cannot be removed.

Price: $270.

Video Review

There is only one major drawback of having a low quality camera. Apart from this, the mobile phone itself is brilliantly known for its fast processor, completing your work in minimum time possible. You can opt for this HTC model if you have less or no use of camera.
