Reviews Word on the street for the HTC One (M8) for Windows

The depth of field trick isn't impressive enough to warrant the second lens either.

Not surprisingly, HTC didn’t mess around with the recipe it used for the Android-powered HTC One M8’s display – so the results are pretty much identical here with this 5-inch 1080 x 1920 Super LCD-3 display with Gorilla Glass 3.


8.0 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


The Color accuracy chart gives an idea of how close a display's measured colors are to their referential values.

The chart also provides a visual representation of a display's color accuracy.

From its vibrant screen to its stereo speakers, it definitely delivers the goods in this particular area.

Yes, this phone is primarily meant to play nicely with Verizon’s CDMA network domestically, but it’s able to roam around the world thanks to its GSM radio.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)
Despite the aggressive approach, we have to point out that a formidable option, the Nokia Lumia Icon, is available for free through Verizon – so that’s something to think about.

It runs Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 and is initially exclusive to Verizon Wireless, though it will be coming to AT&T and T-Mobile.

Specifically, they include its sharp details, vibrant color reproduction, and crisp viewing angles.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)
Specifically, its camera quality just can’t compare to the stuff that Nokia’s PureView cameras on its high-end Windows Phones are capable of producing.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)
HTC’s duo camera system is present here, giving us some cool post focusing effects, but its overall quality doesn’t differ whatsoever.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)


In addition to the uniform Windows Phone 8.1 experience, HTC throws in some of its own branded apps, which slightly enhances the experience, but not enough to catapult it over the stuff we’ve seen from Nokia.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)
Overall, the added HTC apps are nice, but it’s blatantly obvious that HTC didn’t do a whole lot of work in making them all that unique and different.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)
Unfortunately, there’s none of that here, since we’re only given the stock music player.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)


In our mixed use tests that include web browsing, checking 2 email accounts (Google and Outlook), streaming 4 YouTube full HD videos via Metrotube (Windows Phone lacks an official YouTube client because Google won't provide one), taking 20 photos and streaming music with the screen off for an hour, we still had 30% charge left by bedtime.

With all the ingredients for a proper video watching experience, the phone is essentially perfect for the occasion.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)
HTC Zoe isn't on board as it is with the Android version, but we do get a Video Highlights app that montages recent photos together for an animated presentation.
