HTC One M8 Unboxing and First Impressions

April 4, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Today, Fedex brought me a package which was the HTC One M8. It’s not the Verizon variant either, it’s the T-Mobile version, which isn’t even released yet. So I figured I should do an unboxing video – since so many of you always ask for them – and some first impressions of the device. I also wanted to take some time and talk about the review. With the HTC One M8 we are breaking the review down into two parts. Since Sense 6 is heading to last year’s One family, we are doing a review on the HTC One M8, which Tom is doing, and then one for Sense 6, which I’m doing. So that way those with last year’s HTC One, One Mini or One Max can know what to expect with the update to Sense 6 which should be coming soon.

So far, I’m very impressed with the HTC One M8. Of course, I haven’t had enough time to really go over the camera on the HTC One M8, but we’ll have plenty of posts for it, and comparing it to other devices we have on hand. So be sure to keep it locked to The HTC One M8 is a beautifully looking device, and it’s slightly larger than last year’s One, but I think it’s still a good size. Even with the Boomsound speakers. Don’t even get me started on those. I’m using those speakers right now to play Google Play Music, and I’ve fallen in love again with their front-facing speakers.

As far as first impressions go, they are all positive. Later on today and this week we’ll do a comparison between the camera on the One M8 and the G2 so we can see just how good it is. So look forward to that. We’re going to have a ton of HTC One M8 content. Many of you come to us for news, but we don’t just do news. We also do reviews and you can think of us as a reference desk. We want to be sure that everyone is using all the features of the HTC One M8 as it’s a great device and needs to be used to its full potential. As always, if you have questions about the device, let us know in the comments below.
