3.6 out of 5 stars 125 customer reviews
1 Lithium Metal batteries required. (included)
The one and only One.
Firstly, Regarding the delivery, I opted for the in a day delivery of the product and it was delivered in less than 24 hours. Great job, Flipkart.
Regarding the phone, I will stick the experience of the phone rather than the tech specs. For tech reviews of the phone, please see major reviewers like Cnet, The Verge, GsmArena and MKBHD. (My favorite ones anyway).
1. Looks: My god, it just blows you away. The premium Brushed metal finish is an absolute pleasure to touch and use. I am sure this one reason alone will move a lot of potential buyers from alternate offerings of Samsung, LG, Apple etc.
2. The Sense 6 interface is by far one of the best manufacturer interfaces. Having used the Google Play interface, I would still rate this as more personal and as smooth, if not better. But yes, the android updates may not be as timely as in the Google play editions.
3. Blinkfeed is really amazing and easily replaces all your News and Social Networking dedicated apps. It's fast and easily accessible.
4. Camera: Yes, it is probably one of the sore aspects of the phone. However, for casual photographs and such it is more than sufficient. Well, if you can get over the lower pixel count, it does produce decent pics. And ofcourse, the "ultrapixel" size is bigger than that of other manufacturers, so that helps too.
5. Lack of aspects like Heartbeat sensor and Fingerprint sensor. I pondered over this aspect, but it actually is not a big give away. If you want to compensate for the lack of hearbeat sensor that the competition offers or if you are a big fitness freak, you have the option to buy dedicated trackers like fitbit etc. Btw, Fitbit app comes pre-installed. Probable HTC thought this may offset the absence of sensor a little bit. And Fingerprint sensor? Seriously? Big deal.
6. Screen: One word. Brilliant. Let's just Apple does not come up with a retina display phone with the 6. Otherwise, the One M8 is all set.
For a great phone to live with and be excited to hold and use everyday, look no further. Having used a lot of other phones in the market. I can confidently say that no other phone comes close to providing such a rich and personalized experience as the One M8. It is the One and Only.
Granted, HTC has nowhere near the marketing power of Samsung and Apple so sales may not be THAT high. But, once you have used a HTC phone, it is difficult not to see how glaringly ugly the rest of the phones are. Well, that is my experience and perspective anyway. Having made a comeback to HTC, I have decided never to shift my phone brand again.
Overall, A truly incredible phone.
Feels like a hybrid of FERRARI and ASTON MARTIN in my hand!!!!!!
By Abhishek malikon
Now first things first........pretty hefty price tag for a phone but does it justify the tag and the answer is absolutely a big satisfactory yes!!!!
1) The design of the phone is the main clinching point of the deal and feels absolutely luxurious in the hand (you need to see and feel it in person).....that cold feeling you get when you pick up your phone in in morning is unmatched by a samsung or sony or even an iphone
2) Now lets talk about the software and its another plus to htc its nippy and fast.....no lags as in a galaxy....no crashing as in ios......no stupid bloatware......no cartoon icons...just a very clean UI probably the best after stock android and in some places seems even better
3) Screen is LCD gorgeous looking but not as punchy colors as in a samsung......its on a cooler side of shade...but i like it more than super amoled as its not in ur face always viewing angles are gr8
4) Memory problem has been solved by HTC and it makes sense as everything cannot be fit in a 16 gb phone.....so you can expand upto 128gb
5) Motion gestures are more than useful and doesn't seem gimmicky or added for the fun of it.......very useful as the power button is in a very awkward position that is on the top of the phone......you need to operate with the second hand in order to reach in it
6) Now let's talk about the elephant in he room THE CAMERA or should i say cameras
there are 2 rear cameras actually the top one is a depth sensor which gives u a chance to refocus ur image later the bottom one is 4 megapixel/ultrapixel
It takes decent photos that can be used on social networks easily but doesn't provide much details on zooming in
so at last
PROS: the design , software , motion gestures , expandable memory , new camera effects
CONS: the position of power button
Camera according to some is not upto the mark but for me is appropriate for
regular shots after all who stands in front of a landscape with a mobile camera u
better buy a cannon for it
In conclusion this phone will surely turn heads when you take it out of your pocket!!!
Reply to "Might Help" (possible samsung user)
By Sanjay B.on
I usually dont write reviews, but look at what Gaurav Raj (Seems like a samsung employee) has written as a 'might help' thingy.... i thought of writing a review of the HTC One M8 phone, and a reply to gaurav's so called review, based on which which people (of course with that budget) would decide to buy or not.
I am not here for cons. And pros.
You have highly qualified reviews for that.
I want to share some things.
1.width matters , for one handed use, bezels are big on sides considering it is not even waterproof.
Its not good for one handed use considering it is not even waterproof?? What kind of link is this? The phone is perfect to use in one hand. Please note, its tall, not wide. And its as wide as (or lesser) than other normal smartphones in the market.
2.people saying it is waterproof - That video on youtube ended there itself, phone shows IC problems in a month or two .
If the company says its not waterproof, dont listen to people who say it is. and dont put it in water.
3.Camera performance is still bad .I dont want depth information if I cant click nice pictures.
The OIS is very very gery important feature for mobile emergency phtography.and they ditched it.
If YOU cant click nice pictures, its YOUR fault, not the phone's. Agreed u dont want depth information.
OIS is very very important (because samsung got it?)... Were you using it in 2013 or any of your previous smartphones?
4.The device feels like something you might not ever have hold, The curves are even more perfect than MOTO X.
Use a case. Anyways, you are going to use a case even if you buy an S5.
5.i agree boomsound speakers are nice, but most of the times you might be hearing from headphones.
No one would use it as a main speaker unit.better get a small JBL 4o pair with if you love stereo audios in home.
So you are left which no option but to agree that you like boomsound speakers, but then u use headphones, or you buy JBL. :D :D
6.Those speakers include super heavy space and the HTC logo uses the space too.
STILL THE KEYS ARE ON SCREEN.
Immensely wasted space and specs .
People more intelligent that you across the world are appreciating the design of the phone, and the speakers, but you see everything the phone has or does, as a disadvantage. (Is this a paid review??? I mean paid by Samsung) :D
I wont suggest anyone to buy this unless you are an htc or apple user for who class is the important thing first and smartphone ness is the second
LASTLY, I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU, WHICH PHONE DO U USE??? I would love to write a full review on that phone.
Coming to the HTC One M8 review... Only one line.
If you have the budget and plan to stay with an AMAZING phone for at least 3,4 years... BUY !
I bought and HTC HD2 (4 years back), then and HTC One X (2 years back), and now a HTC One M8. All the phones are still working perfectly. TILL DATE. (Gaurav, are you listening???)
BTW, HTC has promised to provide Google Android updates for the next 2 years. So your phone will be up-to-date for the next 2 years.
The JEWEL of Android
By Rohit Kohlion
Beautiful, bold design
Premium build quality - Metal!
Best-in-class audio/multimedia experience
Powerful specs built to last
128 MicroSD slot opens doors
Amazingly fun to use camera
HTC has created a miracle here. It even comes with the latest snapdragon 801 processor unlike old exynos on samsung s5. In the world of smartphones, the very best products are those which deliver consistency across the physical and the virtual. Those which feel as good as they look. Those whose performance lives up to their hardware. With the M8, HTC has crafted just such a device.
Greatest phone ever made. Period. Just hold it in your hands to believe it. :)
By Lalit sehgalon
Shifter from note 3 ...and was waiting for s5 if only it was sd801 but since again Samsung cheated Indian consumer i dumped it for htc one m8...n got it on 30 apr... and its absolutely stunning.... and battery with my use lasted 1day 4 hours... where as with same usage my note 3 lasted 8 hours...so its stunningly beautiful and amazingly fast... n yes for cam its amazing... see my page "mobile cam's" on fb... i luv this m8..amazing fone..worth every penny
PM8916 temperature is too high
Phone is great except camera but my device was suffering from an issue. pa_therm1 temperature was at 98C which is not normal. I've requested a return. Let's see.
Plus if you like to try rooting etc
Over-priced for a relatively simple phone with average features and specs. Plus if you like to try rooting etc, stay away from HTC's as they have S-on features ( google, if you wish to learn more), which is an extra layer of security that you can't get rid of unless you wish to buy another software for USD 25.

htc m8 eye good
I am very excited to see my parcel within 3 days in Manipuri. I love it. Good seller all accessories are good
HTC, as always never disappoints... the phone operates lightning quick and no trouble at all!!! though some of the reviews aren't good, i bought this phone trusting HTC brand name and it is AWESOME!! Please don't read some negative reviews on this product!!
Both me and my wife are using HTC phones and there is no complaint really. Phone is solid in performance and never hangs.
Ultimate ...And superlative...Wat else I can say...I love it.
Pathetic support from HTC
The phone is good but I had a tough time with service. Phone body was replaced twice due to heating, I insisted a replacement but service centre guys rejected. After 8 months of usage the charging and headphones jack stopped working bottom board was replaced. I took delivery from them after making sure everything is working fine, but I didn't check the camera's unfocus feature. When I went after 1 month for camera issue they told secondary camera stopped working due to physical damage though there were no signs of physical damage. It's high time htc should upgrade their QC and service quality.
It was a bday gift
It is overall okay , lag sonetimes , camera is gd but not comparable to iphones. The battery life is fine and charging is too slow , it takes around 3 hrs to charge
My favorite HTC

HTC M8 EYE GOLD Color
By Jatin Saranon
Received this phone a few days ago and I have to say..."Brilliant job HTC". What an incredible built! This phone might be a little old (just as per model, like an I phone 6 is old as well) but it's still an awesome performer. Box says it is powered by snapdragon 800 chipset but it's not true. Actually, it is powered by a snapdragon 801 chipset and anyone can check it by installing an App. The phone looks gorgeous. I decided to go for it as the new M9 plus is powered by a mediatek chipset and I am not a huge fan of mediatek. You are spending 40K and you are getting a mediatek is something which can't be digested. In fact the new Xiaome phone is equipped with the same Mediatek helios chipset and the cost is just Rs. 9999/-. It breaks the heart. Anyways, back to the EYE. GOLD color is simply awesome. Go for it and feel the difference. SD 801 is still a rocking performer and even the new SD 615 Octacore 64 bit chip is no where near to the 801. In fact, this chip can still give a solid fight to the new 808 and 810 chipsets. I got this phone in a flash sale for just Rs. 21,000/- but now the prices are again high as lot of people are going for the EYE instead of the M9 plus. As per the experts, the built of this phone is way ahead of the I phone 6, still today. What else do you want. Camera is awesome (both front and back). It is just that the front cam is not euipped with that wide angle lens which are present on the M8 but it's not a deal breaker as you can still take gorgeous selfies. This phone has been sold for 40k in the past and now is the right time to grab one as the prices are bit low. You are never going to regret your decision. You can easily trust the words coming out from the mouth of a Chaudhary. Go for it guys!!
