Review: HTC One (M8)

Over the weekend, I watched a football match. It was a match between a team that’s had an illustrious past but has fallen off considerably from the heady heights it once called home, against another team who are in the business of buying success. This latter team is widely considered the antithesis of what football stands for; that hard work and tenacity paired with technique and finesse will win you the game.

Over the past two weekends I had also been using the new HTC One (M8). As the game progressed, I realized there were some interesting parallels between the fortunes of HTC with the first team: an entity that was used to being successful, which then endured years of being in the shadows, and is now on the cusp of a renaissance. With a brand new, refined and undeniably handsome flagship smartphone in tow, could HTC mark the start of a resurgence with its latest flagship, the HTC One (M8)? Let’s find out.

In an interview with Reuters, Samsung’s Senior VP for Product Strategy, Han Kil Yoon has confirmed that they will be releasing an Android Wear smartwatch and “high-end” Tizen based Smartphone this year. This is almost eerily similar to last year when those plans did not come through due to “poor market conditions”. Samsung have said that they will be concentrating their efforts mainly in “a few countries they can do well in”.

If this is to be believed we will be getting a high end Tizen phone by the end of june and the Android Wear watch by the end of the year. I for one will be excited to see what the combination of Android Wear and perhaps a curved display will bring!
