From the aspect of design the user may find it more attractive as the steel grey color of the body gives the phone a metallic look; whereas the larger screen can magnify the display. The cover behind the phone is curved and so easy to handle. Unlike the other HTC phones, the design of this handset would not let it slip from your hands at times. The 160 gm phone does not even let you feel that it has many more things under the wraps.

Hardware Of Htc One (M8) Smartphone

Once the user is satisfied with the design, he must turn to the hardware. The hardware of this handset matches with the best quality mobiles you have ever known. HTC maintains its own class. The Qualcomm MSM8974AB Snapdragon 801 chipset is certainly the best of its kind to deliver the best to the users. One can download most advanced games and run those smoothly with Adreno 330 GPU while Quad core 2.3 GHz for CPU gives the hardware setting a proper look. The 2GB RAM lies quietly under the back cover. The phone has one microSD slot that can be filled with 16GB and 32GB microSD cards respectively. One may also find a 128 GB card to set in the slot to enrich the memory capacity of the phone.

A powerful speaker would certainly make a user happy while listening to some tracks on the phone.
