Hello friends I had bought HTC one m8 mobile phone and now it's total body panels has been in the worst condition.so,I just want to change the total body panels.can anyone help me out.
Guys i found something Interesting about new material which HTC is going to use in Htc one M8 Prime.....
have a look below....
Advantages of Ceramics Vs. Steel
Our ceramic products outlast the hardest steel by 10 to 20 times with regards to service life. Our zirconia based ceramics are the toughest ceramics known to mankind. The higher strength and higher hardness of our patented ceramic materials yield superior wear and abrasion resistance as well as superior corrosion resistance.
Superior wear and abrasion resistance
No corrosion - Ever
Electrical insulators (oxide ceramics)
Best thermal insulator - zirconia
Withstands high temperature (> 1000°C)
Withstands thermal shock
Replacing worn steel parts less frequently lowers total cost of ownership in both labor and replacement parts cost.
Net-shape ceramic manufacturing, however, can lower the cost by almost 50% for many applications by eliminating or reducing the cost of hard machining using diamond tooling.
If dimensional tolerance is not stringent and for medium to high volume manufacturing, e.g., over 100 parts per week, ceramic can be competitive.
For high volume requirements, ceramics can be injection molded. This lowers the cost to the level of stainless steel.
Typically, ceramics outperform steel by at least 10x
RocCera’s oxide-based ceramics do not corrode, whereas steel parts do corrode
Our ceramics can withstand higher temperatures without compromising the strength
Alumina and zirconia ceramics are superior electrical insulators
Zirconia ceramics are the best thermal insulators
RTZ ceramic has low coeff of friction, μ (0.2 – 0.2) requiring no lubrication as contrasted to steel.
Under high load, steel against steel is prone to galling – ceramic does not gall
For specialized applications, steel requires an additional processing step to improve the surface hardness
I know another material that is cheaper than aluminum, easier to work and more durable: PLASTIC
This maybe the device that replaces my Galaxy s4..we will have to see htc has my attention.
Guys, have you ever heard of ceramic engine blocks? There are very tough kinds of ceramic.
Gary, 20 May 2014Space shuttles don't get dropped on concrete...So you suggest the nose cone is a decorative part of the shuttle?
Have you heard about shockwaves? The nose cone of spacecrafts able of atmospheric reentry is a whole science on its own due to the extreme pressure and heat, even if they are insanely strong they must be constructed in a way that deflects most of the power from shockwaves. You probably do not understand but just trust me when i say that it there because its insanely strong.
More info on RCC, the ceramic composite material the nose cone is made of, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reinforced_Carbon-Carbon
as you can read there it lacks impact resistance, but that is common for very strong materials, Gorilla glass included (which is why GG is unsuitable for protective eyewear, Corning tried but ended with disaster when they had to recall the product due to extreme shattering hazard, it was much safer to not use them. Still, we are then talking impacts, not a 5 feet drop on concrete, which is quite insignificant by any measures. Even weak metals like iron can be dropped on concrete.
Ahayt, 20 May 2014They're pretty durable. Space shuttles' nose caps are made of ceramic.Space shuttles don't get dropped on concrete...
John N, 20 May 2014Cheaper? Easier to Manufacture? A wrist watch made from ceramic cost a packet!! I can only ima... moreI think you are right, this one could be very expensive to manufacture, this isnt regular ceramics for pottery but high end stuff. The upside of manufacturing costs is that by using some high pressure molding process these ceramics may not need much postprocessing before going to the assembly lines, maybe just a few holes that need thread tapping to have something to secure the mainboard to, as opposed to the aluminum body of M8 that requires timeconsuming CNC milling and additional color/coating.
Apparently the person who wrote this article does not know what ceramic is. Yes, the stuff from which coffee mugs are made is also ceramic but that's not all what ceramic is. I doubt really that they will build a phone out of porcelain... There are advanced ceramics that are better in every way and also more expensive than metal or aluminium for that matter... carbon ceramic brakes would be just one example
Ceramic is cheaper than aluminium,,,i bet the phone isn't cheaper to reflect this..
Tan T C, 20 May 2014Wouldn't ceramic break easily?
They're pretty durable.
Space shuttles' nose caps are made of ceramic.
i buy m8 and love it soooo much but this new prime had me to think for change to new htc prime
Sarvam, 20 May 2014i remember the name prime, which comes from samsung, but why does htc following the dump brand.lol.. did samsung announce the prime name?? Prime is just assumtion.. lol
i remember the name prime, which comes from samsung, but why does htc following the dump brand.
avno7xp, 20 May 2014They might have copied the name....but they might be the first to build a ceramic phone...whil... moreSamsung is a tech giant.It hasn't produced metal phone(indeed it has before.I meant recently),because it doesn't want.it's not a hard job for samsung to do that. So,its nothing to reach.
Of course I won't encourage Samsung because of its plastic phones,but what you said is wrong.
Jarret, 20 May 2014Once more time - HTC copying Samsung's...You are insane :))) Mercedes doesn't need to copy cheap Kia never
