The One M8 has been superseded by the M9 and as such it’s tumbled down our list, but it’s still a hugely impressive phone. We love the speed of the camera, the Duo Camera is sharp as a tack and the design… well, you have to hold it. The HTC One M8 is an excellent package.
Gaming, movies, photography, browsing all work really well and HTC is committed to its baby too, as it was one of the first phones to get Android Lollipop.
The only way to know how good the HTC One M8 is, is to go into a store, pick it up and hold it for a few minutes. Take in the design, listen to the BoomSound speakers and glide around the Sense UI. The M9 of course offers better versions of the same things, but you’ll pay a lot more for it.
