With the HTC One M8 officially announced, the list of flagship devices for many companies is now complete. The HTC One M8 sees only a few changes vs the previous generation and a lot of difference between the two main competition for this year the Galaxy S5 and the Xperia Z2. 

The HTC One M8 misses out on few things that the company could have simply added. 4K video recording is one thing that HTC should not have left out on, the other being a fingerprint sensor. The HTC One Max had it and naturally the M8 should have had it as well.

The HTC One M8 also misses out on being a water resistant device like the Z2 and now the S5. check out the full breakup of differences below

I recently bought HTC One M8 phone. After having this phone, I feel like top of the world. It has a very stylish layout with metallic body. Little heavier, but comfortable on palm. Both the cameras (1.3MP front and 5MP rear) have wooed me with special HD display. The Android OS, v4.4.2 (KitKat) and Quad Core Processor give excellent and nerve-racking experience in running the application. There is the 16GB inbuilt memory that allows me to save ample amount of data. And, if you feel like, you need more memory size, then you can also extend it to 128GB. I would recommend that you all should go for HTC One M8 phones, as for me this seems to be the best phone of the year.For More Information log on : http://www.shopbychoice.com/htc-one-m8-gold/p/TkRJeE16Zz0
