HTC One M8 blowing the competition away in a screen latency test

During this fast paced war of  smartphones, facing each other in the epic of battles, be it processor power or how many more mega pixels your camera smartphone has etc. It is the little things which most people tend to over look until they have bought the product and then they realize it. Did my phone just lag? That is one thing which is crucial for any user to get the best experience he/she can have of his/her mobile device. You may have heard some people around you, or you might have experienced it yourself, that how iOS is so smooth and is the best when it comes to a lag free experience. They were probably right, until last year when Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 3 (67ms) and beat the latency score of Apple’s iPhone 5/5s (75ms). This year, it may be a bit hard to believe but, the all new HTC One (M8) has shattered all the previous records and according to French tech blog Lesnumeriques,  the M8 scored 46ms screen latency. Well as the competition gets hotter, we will be seeing devices with a better score and giving us users a much smoother experience.  Microsoft is one company which is working on a Zero latency program, so if you think the HTC One M8 is smooth, then you can not even begin to imagine what that would be. Well the future seems to be really bright in this domain and congratulations seem to be in order for the HTC team as well. So, is that one more reason to get the new HTC One...

The HTC One M8 – Hands On and Full Product Specs

The HTC One M8 – Hands On and Full Product Specs

HTC through out the years have a knack of coming up with some of the most elegant looking smartphones to-date. Last year, the HTC One clearly justified this statement and was widely considered to be one of the most stunning Android devices to grace the markets. The HTC One not only brought grace and elegance with it, it also revolutionized the smartphone genre with some of its appealing features including the very impressive Boom Sound (by Beats Audio), the Ultra Pixel Camera along with a sleek metallic design. The HTC One truly had all the characteristics to be deemed as HTC”s flagship device of 2013. Now the question on everybody’s mind was exactly how the company be able to better its almost perfect prodigal son? Well the answer to that question Ladies and Gentlemen is the all new HTC One M8. Let us now take an in-depth look at what the HTC One M8 has to offer and whether it deserves to wear  its predecessors crown or not! Design and Body One of the major attractions especially when it comes to HTC devices is the premium feeling which you get just by looking at them and this indeed is a fact. The M8 just like its predecessor comes wrapped in a uni-body metallic frame which not only gives the device an elegant look, but also makes it feel quite sturdy and sophisticated. There are no traces of plastic to be found anywhere on the device which should be a plus point for those who are not very much fond of getting devices that have been made with plastic as it tends to give a less classy look to the otherwise quite expensive and high-end smartphones. Even with the metallic body, the M8 which weighs in at around 160gms doesn’t feel too bulky to carry in the pocket. As far as the device’s overall size is concerned, the company has this time around decided to go with a larger 5-inch screen as compared to last year’s model that had a 4.7-inch display. The 5-inch screen, up from 4.7-inches on last year’s model, is a Super LCD3 display with 1080p resolution, protected by Gorilla Glass 3. On the top and bottom of the screen you will find the new and much improved BoomSound speakers which according to HTC have been improved by upto 40% as compared to its predecessor. The one complaint that people had with the previous HTC One was that whenever they used to play a game or watch a video in landscape mode, their fingers used to automatically hover over the ambient light sensors causing the screen to go dark most of the time....
