The HTC One (M8) was announced yesterday and we received one in our hands within hours of the announcement. Here are some of our first impressions:
- The most sleek looking smartphone ever.
- Why does inserting a memory card have to be such a hassle?
- No image stabilization on camera? What were they thinking?
- The sound on this thing is quite amazing through the external speakers or with headphones.
- The screen--Wow!
- Only 2GB RAM? That is so 2013!
- This thing is fast!
- If this thing is dropped, would it break in pieces?
- Not sure I like Chrome as the stock browser. However, it does play Flash videos!
- Battery life is good, but not excellent.
We will have a full review very soon. Overall, we are impressed, but think some of the outstanding reviews that came in yesterday overrated the HTC One (M8) a little bit.
