And here she (apologies for the delay, it has been that kind of day). The HTC One (M8) is in house (and also in NYC with Tim), unboxed, and on film with thoughts to share. After seeing the phone leak more than any phone in history, you are probably surprised that we actually have any new thoughts, but trust me, we do.
First off, I’ll just say this – the minute you pick up the new One (M8), it is guaranteed that you will say, “Wow, this is the most premium smartphone I have ever felt.” That doesn’t necessarily mean you are going to love BlinkFeed or the 4MP duo camera thingy, but there is no denying the craftsmanship here. HTC builds beautiful hardware, with this new One being their finest work aesthetically to date.
The rest of the package is a combination of new and old. The new being a refreshed UI with gestures I plan on using frequently. The old is the fact that it’s still HTC’s Sense. I’ve only spent a few hours with the phone up until now, but so far am enjoying the device just like I did the original One.
While we get to fully testing everything from the new gestures to UFocus, check out the unboxing and video overview below to hear more.
