Average Rating:
85%


Description:

The One M8s gives the M8 a 64-bit octa-core chip, a 13-megapixel dual LED camera, and the Android Lollipop experience. Just a few months after launching their MWC 2015 flagship One M9, HTC reintroduces the One M8 via the 5-inch One M8s, a follow-up that puts a 13-megapixel (dual LED flash) camera in place of the 4-megapixel UltraPixel back lens...

What We Like:

  • Its dual LED flash likely takes in more light compared to the conventional flash
  • Its single aluminum case is a signature design element from HTC
  • The 64-bit Snapdragon 615 1.7GHz octa-core CPU is used by a number of other high-end 2015 Androids
