HTC launched its latest flagship device the HTC One (M8) in spectacular style yesterday and you can now get this amazing new phone on Three.
This beautifully crafted, solid aluminium phone certainly feels pretty great in the palm of your hand and it looks darn good too. It’s ergonomically designed with soft curves, smooth lines and a zero edge finish. To say that it’s a premium design would be an understatement!
In 2013 the HTC One was the most awarded device in the industry, so the M8 is building on some solid foundations already. With an increase in screen size (4.7 to 5 Inch), an improved processor (1.7Ghz to 2.3Ghz) and a not insignificant improvement to the front facing camera (2.1MP to 5MP) that’s more than enough to be getting on with.
But HTC have added plenty of exciting new features as well. The cool Motion Launch™ feature allows you to answer the phone just by putting it to your ear, no more accidentally rejecting calls when you hit the wrong button, just lift it up and put it to your ear; *simples*
The increased front camera MP’s aren’t the only improvements to the whole camera experience on the M8. The rear now includes a Duo camera. The beauty of this is that is allows you to take a picture and then re-focus it retrospectively in order to create a blurred foreground or background, for really professional looking photos. If ‘selfies’ are your thing, the ‘Selfie Mode’ will be right up your street, with its countdown tool and the wide angle lens, perfect selfies are but a tap away.
HTC Sense TV™ is a clever little feature too. Not only can you use your phone as a remote control for your TV, but it will also tell you what is being said on Social Media about whatever you happen to be watching, so there’s no need to switch between apps to find out what everyone’s saying about the latest episode of The Walking Dead or whatever your latest TV obsession may be.
The popular Zoe™ app returns in the M8, allowing you to create mini movies of your life based on the pictures and videos you’ve created. So if you’ve been to a great festival, you can make a story of the weekend in one piece of content that you can quickly and easily share with friends, who can then add their own pictures for any moments you might have missed.
Amazing sound is something the HTC One became known for, and the M8 is no different. With two high quality speakers on the front of the phone and BoomSound™ to amplify, mix and reduce distortion for a really impressive sound.
The M8 is an impressive phone all round, and when you couple it with 4G, free 0800 numbers (if you get it with any of our new plans), Feel at Home and All You Can Eat data on Three, it’s a winning combination. Get your mits on one today.
