The HTC One M8 is the 2014 flagship device for High Tech Computers (HTC). The HTC M8 is the successor to the insanely popular HTC One which was the 2013 flagship device for the Taiwanese Tech Giant. The HTC One M8 boosts some of the best specifications you will find on an Android device.
Couple this with its exquisite design and you get a device that can deliver all what you need and want. Even though I am a hardcore Samsung fanboy, I have to admit that HTC flagship devices offer one of the best Android OS experience you will find in the market.

The HTC One M8 is one interesting device. One of its interesting features is that the HTC M8 rear snapper is smaller than its front facing camera. It is the vice versa with most handsets. However, the silver lining to this is that the M8 captures some fantastic selfies.
