We tested the HTC One (M8) for business and personal use.
The sound is amazing not only through headphones – the two BoomSound™ frontal speakers also give videos, songs and hands-free calls an amazing sound. The microphone can pick up extremely loud sounds without any distortion and remove background noise in the event of quiet parts – which will please the person you are talking to.
The camera has 4 million pixels, more than in other cameras, and thus produces the image quality. Modes like focus correction, picture in picture with front and back cameras, all-round panorama or various video themes all help with setting up photos.
Dot view cover
The perforated flip cover gives the high-resolution 5" super LCD3 display a charming retro style and, on tapping or swiping, reveals call, message or weather information.
Remote control and access control
It may seem unusual that infrared is still built into today’s mobile phones. However, this allows remote control of television sets (via infrared) and TV boxes, like Swisscom TV 2.0 (via Bluetooth), from the same device. Thanks to the built-in NFC function (Near Field Communication) and the Tapit app, the mobile phone can be used as a badge for access control or even used for mobile payments.
