SummaryMuch before it was launched, HTC One M8 became one of the most leaked phones on the internet.

by the Android 4.4.2 KitKat, the latest version of the operating software. Its processor is the 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core and the phone comes with a 2 GB RAM and 16 GB storage. The 2600 mAh battery has a claimed standby time of up to 496 hours and a talk time of up to 20 hours, which we found to be correct. In fact, last Sunday we heavily used the phone—clicked photos (100), captured videos (20 minutes), browsed the web (2 hours), watched two movies and listened to music (30 minutes)— and yet had 20% charge left at the end of the day!

On the rear of the camera, as I said, are two lenses. The second lens (on top of the primary lens), while it doesn’t capture images, actually helps in detecting and separating backgrounds and foregrounds as it scans depth and adds that information to the picture. With a little bit of experience, you can do a whole lot with HTC One M8’s cameras. A beautiful feature is the slow motion video recording mode.

Competing with the likes of Sony Xperia Z2, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Apple iPhone 5S, the HTC One M8 is a powerhouse of a phone

Estimated street price: Rs 49,990
