i rest my case: "The HTC One (M8) audio quality is by far the best we've seen a mobile device produce so far - and that's including tablets. Even its impressive predecessor pales in comparison with the latest HTC flagship, which is not only the loudest around, but also delivers perfectly clean output.
The HTC One (M8) did perfectly in the active external amplifier part of the test, posting great scores all over the field. In addition it had volume levels higher than every other mobile device on the market right now.
More impressively, there's virtually no degradation when you plug in a pair of headphones. The stereo crosstalk rises so little that it remains better than what some smartphones deliver without headphones. The rest of the readings remain perfect too, while the volume is as high as they come. What do you know - dropping the Beats logo actually led to even more spectacular performance by the HTC flagship."
I'm concerned about the wrap around aluminium edges. They remind me of the edges on my Inspire. These where made of thin aluminum and easily dented. The back of the original One was much thicker than the Inspire. There is no way to tell what gauge metal is used on the M8 until someone dissects it for us. I'd rather have a polycarbonate(ie.lexan/bulletproof glass)edge so I don't have to put a case on it.
Ruzveh, 25 Mar 2014Can anyone confirm whether it has IR Blaster like the one which was there in 2013 model?Yes it will have IR blaster :)

Ruzveh, 25 Mar 2014Can anyone confirm whether it has IR Blaster like the one which was there in 2013 model?Yes it have and software is also updated with new features.

5", more metal, more powerful, interesting front camera, more louder speakers, microsd slot
Ultrabezels, 4MP rear camera, low capacity battery..
Why didn't them put an effort to minimize the bezels, put a +3000mAh battery and at least put a 8MP camera?
Z2- 3gb DDR3 RAM ( dual channel)
S5- 2gb DDR3 RAM (dual channel).
one- 2gb DDR2 RAM.
DDR2 is a old tech considering samsung has already launched 4gb DDR4 ram(50% increase over DDR3 ram) at ces 2014 and will be available for devices in 2H 2014.....
what the hell is htc doing????

What i can see is that the spec race has nearly come to an end . Now, the new formula for success in smart phone business is the PRICEPONT . And that is what google, motorola , lenovo , gionee, one plus , xiaomi are after. They are going to be the next market leaders
They still uses stupid Non-removable battery, which you can't change and added a few software tricks that was on samsung's ages ago. There will be no updates as always, stupid hardware bugs (like on One X) so the phone will land on warranty, locked bootloader. And if they kindly release some new firmware it will introduce full of new bugs. No thanks HTC, i stick with sammsung ;)
AnonD-39337, 25 Mar 2014why can't htc put a freaking 13 or 16 mpix SINGLE main camera with OIS?They already gave a 13 mp cam for a mid ranger HTC desire 8
Like if you didn't bother to watch the announcement because of the MANY leaks :3
