HTC One (M8) for Windows review: Same muscle, different soul

This is the first time in years that a user can select a device's hardware and software at the same time; you usually have to choose one and then live with the other. People who already use and love Windows Phone now have a flagship option that isn't the latest Lumia device. This phone won't end the platform wars by showing undeniable proof that Windows Phone trumps Android or vice versa; both devices clearly have pros and cons in different areas, and it ultimately comes down to your personal preference. read more →

  • Beautiful aluminum design
  • Above-average performance
  • Good battery life
  • Global LTE roaming
  • Latest version of Windows Phone
  • Missing some features unique to the Android M8
  • Mediocre camera compared to competing devices
  • Only one color option
  • Difficult to quickly access the camera

HTC One M8 for Windows Phone review: A winning flagship breathes new life into Windows Phone

While its camera isn't best-in-class and Windows Phone's underwhelming app selection still stings, the elegant and sophisticated HTC One M8 is an enticing alternative to Nokia models. read more →

  • HTC One M8 brings premium style to the Windows Phone franchise.
  • Has a brilliant 1080p display and excellent audio speakers.
  • It's powered by a robust quad-core processor.
  • The Windows Phone OS has a smaller app market.
  • The handset's battery is non removable and like the Android M8s.
  • Photos aren't as sharp as from its competitors.

HTC One M8 with Windows Review

There can be no doubt: HTC knows how to make a high-quality smartphone. It’s not just how well they command Android, either. Now we can call the HTC Windows Phone 8X a bit of a mis-step without feeling like HTC didn’t have another trick up their sleeve. Now, unhindered by the hardware requirements of old, HTC succeeds in creating one of the finest Windows Phone devices to date.

Would we choose the HTC One M8 with Windows over the HTC One M8 with Android if posed with the choice in a store today? Probably not. read more →

HTC One (M8) for Windows review: Same genes, different DNA

There's a lot to love about the HTC One M8 for Windows - it's the device that proves the importance of a premium build and construction, irrelevant of software platform. We love the M8 design because it enhances the overall experience.The things that work really well on the Android device from a hardware perspective work well in the Windows device too: the M8 offers a great display and the best mobile sound experience around. read more →

  • Great all-metal design,
  • Excellent display,
  • BoomSound speakers,
  • Premium experience
  • Lacks some of the Lumia advantage,
  • Camera not the best

HTC One M8 for Windows review: just what it says on the tin

· Scored For Me Will the One M8 for Windows be enough, on its own, to arrest Windows Phone’s current popularity slide? Certainly not. A lack of beautiful hardware and gorgeous software has never been the platform’s problem. But whatever the reasons for Windows Phone’s current woes, it suffices to say for our purposes that the new HTC One M8 is not part of the problem. If you’re the kind of person who values personality over utility, someone willing to deal with a few rough edges in exchange for a more colorful experience, Windows Phone is a better fit than ever before. read more →

  • Outstanding industrial design
  • Unique media features not available on other Windows Phones
  • Unrivaled acoustic experience on speakers
  • Best hardware specs available on Windows Phone
  • Excellent low-light camera performance
  • Windows Phone better than ever, but still suffers from usability gaps
  • Slightly buggier app experience
  • Camera resolution lower than any other flagship
  • Ecosystem still limited relative to competition
