Why 2014 HTC One (M8) sucks!!!

The new HTC One (M8) is out! The most leaked phone in the world is finally official. And guess what? This phone screams disappointment! There is literally no “Wow!” factor in this new phone. It looks like its predecessor and performs like one. HTC One M8 is just a minor upgrade not a evolution. If you have the original One, there is no reason for you to upgrade.Why 2014 HTC One (M8) sucks!!!

The all new HTC  One has 4 Ultra Pixel rear facing camera which basically is a 4MP camera seen on the original HTC One. What’s more? The optical image stabilization is missing this time around. So, you can expect to see some shakiness in your photos and videos. The Beats Audio is gone too. That was expected as HTC and Beats parted their way months earlier.That beats logo on the back was a pride that is now gone. There is a 5MP front facing camera for selfies! That was unexpected and something that we had not asked for. We wanted a better camera to shoot photos and we didn’t get it! There is a duo camera setup in the back which allows you to focus faster and have higher depth of field. Sounds nice but these features are already achieved by Nokia and Samsung without the need of second camera lens. There is nothing spectacular there. The new brushed metal on the new One may look nice at first sight but is really really slippery. The new HTC One (M8) is made up of 90% metal whereas the old One was made up of 70% metal. Although it may sound good on paper, the new One weights whooping 160gm which is much more than other flagships. This certainly can’t be a good thing.

Why 2014 HTC One (M8) sucks!!!

 The phone is now 5 inches has the same 1080p screen resolution. The phone is taller than most of the other phones and can be hard to use by one hand. Like every other phone manufacturers, HTC has moved to on-screen buttons but that move doesn’t make sense as the huge bezels are still present were. They should have reduced the bezel size to make dimension of the phone smaller. HTC has used the fastest Qualcomm processor, the 801 but has clocked it slower than the Samsung Galaxy S5. Sony Xperia Z2, LG G2 Pro and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 have 3GB of RAM in them.There is just 2GB of RAM in the all new one.

  1. HTC One M8 is a step above the original HTC One from last year. It continues to have the absolute best build and design quality of any Android device currently in the market while the new rounded edges help give it a much more natural feel in your hand. The screen, much like last years model, is top notch with very accurate colors and deep blacks, traits any photographer should demand in a phone. While HTC and Beats Audio have parted ways since last years model, the speakers found on the HTC One M8 are still phenomenal, playing crisp, clear audio that has a good amount of bass. HTC Sense 6 has added a few new features while also somewhat getting out of the way of itself, something many Android manufacturers fail at doing. As for the camera, I am hard pressed to not be happy that they have improved both the camera application itself and the picture taking quality of the phone when compared to last years model. I found more details in my images, better focusing in low light and overall a more enjoyable experience. A near full manual mode was a nice touch. The down side? You are still stuck with a 4mp sensor, which in this day and age, can be a touch frustrating when you want a little more from your images.
    As of today, this is certainly one of the best Android phone out on the market and it is a phone one that I can easily recommend to a new Android user. If you are an owner of the HTC One, you will enjoy all of the new features and upgrades. That being said, I am also intrigued by both Sony’s new Z2 waterproof smartphone as well as OPPO’s new Find 7 that houses the worlds first 2k screen and a feature that allows you to create 50mp images. Time will tell how everything plays out with all of the new mobile phones from Android and Windows Phone, but until then, I find hTC One(m8) is the best..

    • It’s not that this phone is bad…. but it could be better in so many ways. No matter who says what ULTRA PIXELS is a gimmick. Once you crop the image or zoom in, you will see the difference. Like I stated in the post itself, there is no “wow” factor in the M8.

      • Do you know last year htc One M7 won The Best Smartphone at the GSMA Mobile World Congress (MWC 2014) and gold iF product design award for its outstanding design quality..The HTC One M8 is one of the best Android smartphones out at the moment. It is fast, slick and powerful, but still has great battery life. Its screen is one of the best ever fitted to a smartphone as M8′s color gamut reaches 110%, while its all-metal build is unrivalled in the industry as are the BoomSound speakers.
        The Duo Camera works well, but doesn’t get in the way of regular shooting, with the only detractor being a lack of detail at full size and i admit it but that negative is balanced by very good performance in the typically average to poor lighting conditions most photos are shot in.. So it’s pros are Duo Camera delivers great imagery,Great performance; it beats almost every other flagship in nearly all benchmarks,Beautiful display; Thunderous speakers; Excellent battery life; Fun 3D camera apps.. Gorgeous build. Topnotch frontfacing camera.Cool depthoffield tricks on main camera. Very loud speakerphone.
        Seamless design that’s even more gorgeous than ever, ,Duo effects add that professional look to our photos, Sense 6.0 is a clean & modern looking skin, Motion Launch gestures give us quick access functionality.. What do you think now?? Lolzzz

          • Thanks for your offer brother..i would love that.. But i don’t have time these days.. (^_-).. Your classmate Mr suman don was singing songs about you.. So i just checked out your website once..

  2. 1. HTC One M8

    What to say about the HTC One M8? They
    often say the second album is the hardest, but the follow up to the
    all-conquering HTC One takes the best of that phone and yet still
    re-invents things enough to make it a massive recommendation over the
    old model.

    We love the speed of the camera, the Duo
    Camera is smart as a tack, the Boomsound upgrade is impressive and the
    design… well, you have to hold it.

    The Snapdragon 801
    processor has boosted battery dramatically compared to the 600 of last
    year, and that means that photos also process much more quickly as well –
    even the front-facing camera is much better.

    Gaming,
    movies, photography, browsing – all work really well, and in a phone
    that that’s easily going to destroy whatever anyone else can design,
    unless Apple or LG have got some dark sorcery up their sleeves when the
    iPhone 6 or LG G3 appear later in the year.

    Quick Verdict

    If
    we were to criticise the One M8, it would be the camera’s lack of a
    megapixel upgrade, which means pictures are a little less sharp than
    they might otherwise be.

    That said, it’s a minor point in
    a phone that has barely any flaws. The lower megapixel camera means
    faster shutter speeds, and if you don’t want to zoom in a lot, most will
    enjoy the depth perception and background de-focus ability to make some
    pro-looking snaps.

    We urge you to hold this phone and
    not consider buying it. It’s got great specs, a splendid design and some
    clever hardware innovation where the competition is relying on software
    to do the same thing.

    The Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Xperia Z2 failed to take the top spot, and we honestly don’t know if the iPhone 6
    will be good enough to head straight to the top of the pile when it
    appears? It looks like you’re going to be spoilt for choice in 2014.
