The rounded back compliments the subtle accents at the bezel to provide a feeling of no hard edges to be found anywhere on the device. Frankly, it is gorgeous.
As end users, it is easy to take for granted what goes into the manufacturing of such hardware, but with uni-body designs, there is much less margin for error, particularly when working with metal. While we noted in our review that looks can only get you so far, we were impressed with the overall function of the HTC One (M8) and lauded the build quality.
HTC put together a short video featuring some of the people that brought us the design of the HTC One (M8) and the challenges of putting more in to a package without making it feel too big. Aesthetically, HTC hit a home run with the new M8. Is the new HTC One (M8) on your list?
