Full review: HTC One (M8)

04/28, 12:03am

The HTC One (M8) is the best Android smartphone yet

The HTC One (M8) is the sequel to the critically well-received HTC One (M7), released around 12 months ago. The HTC One (M7) stood out from the Android crowd by making a bold aluminum statement when nearly all its competitors continue with cheap looking and cheap feeling plastic materials. Despite boasting a some great all-round qualities, the HTC One (M7) did not take the market by storm as HTC had hoped. Rather than backpedalling, however, HTC has upped the ante by making the HTC One (M8) even more stunning and adding a raft of improvements that make it one of the most compelling smartphones on the market. However, like most things, it is not without its shortcomings, but whether these are deal killers will ultimately be up to consumers. Read on in our full review of the HTC One (M8) to see why we think it is the best Android smartphone yet.

However, rather than play it safe with the new HTC One, HTC has produced its boldest high-end smartphone statement yet. Our first look at the HTC One (M8) suggests that it is easily the best smartphone HTC has released to date and is shaping up as the best Android smartphone made to date.
