Last summer I reviewed the amazing HTC One (m7).

This year I had the opportunity to get the HTC One (M8) on launch day (March 25th).

Since then the HTC One M8 got my primary smartphone.

I’ve been a long time HTC user and I have to tell you: This is The smartphone I’ve been most satisfied with. I actually said the same last year about the M7, but it’s true. HTC improved somethings I really looked forward to. For me, as a global traveller and geek, global network support is important.
HTC improved that by adding Quadband 3G support to the M8. Huge thumbs up!
The screen is as amazing as last year, but it’s slightly bigger (5″ vs. 4.7″) and kept its Crisp and clear picture quality.

The Ultrapixel camera from 2013 also made it to this years top model, but also added a second back camera to measure the depth. This allows the camera app to add some interesting effects, even in post-production.

The extraordinary battery life from the HTC One M7 also got improved. I still get 2 days out of the battery, while regularly syncing emails and feeds, but the gaming performance got a major step up, even in energy saving mode.

I especially like the HTC BoomSound speakers. They are crisp , loud and clear like its predecessor. They really set the standard of sound quality for the smartphone industry.

HTC put all this features into a new unibody design, which has more round edges (compare to the M7) and uses even more aluminium. They also updated their famous Android UI. HTC Sense 6 is now the base. It’s even faster and cleaner than its predecessor. BlinkFeed, the mail app and many other menus got updated and simplified.

After 3 month of using it. Do I still like it? Absolutely. It’s one of the best smartphone I’ve seen so far, it has an amazing battery life and an awesome camera.
