HTC recently introduced HTC One M8s. According to the description, by the company’s personnel, the product is “pocketbook-friendly”. In principle, the product’s design is not very different from the product introduced by HTC in 2014. Specifications are closer to mid- range products of the company. Likewise, the price too is closer to mid-range products of this company.
The body of HTC One M8 is metallic. It is also curved. As of now, the device is available in Amber Gold, Glacial Silver, and Gunmetal gray. The device has a full HD 5 inch screen. To keep it scratch proof, HTC has covered the display screen with Corning’s Gorilla Glass. The rear camera is the Duo Camera of 13 megapixels. The front camera is merely a 5 megapixel camera.
The device comes with 16GB internal storage, and 2GB RAM. It is possible to increase internal storage up to 128 GB with the help of microSD. The Qualcomm Snapdragon’s 615 Octa-core 64-bit processor is used in this device. The battery life is about 2840 mAh battery. HTC has in-house programs such as sense 6.0, BoomSound, and Eye Experience. These will be provided in addition to Lollipop 5.0 OS. In so far as connectivity is concerned, HTC offers Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, and Wi-Fi.
For 379.99 Pounds Sterling, this SIM-free product is rather expensive. In fact, the product is launched at the wrong time, considering that the smartphone market is near saturation levels. The only thing positive about this device is that it is cheaper than HTC One M9. HTC should re-examine its gadgets pricing policy in view of changing scenario.
