The HTC tech-duo are back with some build quality goodness about the new HTC One (M8)
The engineer and the average guy are back to discuss some of the more remarkable features of the new HTC One (M8), which has a wonderfully awesome build quality.

That build quality is one of many selling points the new HTC One (M8) has going for it. So, it is right that the tech-duo would tout that particular feature. Does it compare with a super-person from the future?

We cannot comment on that, as we do not want to responsible for your self-image, but if you read our review of the HTC One (M8), and ended up buying one, surely you appreciate what we called a “seamless design that’s even more gorgeous than ever.”  So, if image is important to you, it is hard to go wrong with a device like the new M8. 

There is a whole lot to like about HTC’s new flagship. Our gripes were few and far between. The “UltraPixel” camera is still a little overblown, but that is not to say the pictures were awful. The camera is superfast, and the pictures are a solid “good.” If having a water-resistant device is important, the M8 may not fit the bill either.

Still, the overall performance of the new HTC One (M8), from Sense 6.0, to the touch gestures, to the great front facing speakers, makes this flagship worthy of your consideration if you are in the market for a new Android powered smartphone.  Don't forget to invest in frozen yogurt.

HTC ONE is a great phone let see if it can stand in the washing and drying machine like they tested on Galaxy S5 without a case.

:
Good to know that "wonderfully awesome build quality" doesn't mean: hard and messy sealed , cheap ALUMINUM, huge bezels, dent-able, mediocre POS (the worst material for smartphones)

Apple's propaganda will never rest .LOL

Because plastic is so premium. Btw the bezels on the Galaxy s5 are LARGER than the ones on the iPhone. Fact.

And the size is balanced well, unlike M8 being so tall and long

Try to put dual front speakers on the s5 and see how tall would that be. Atleast the extra hight on the m8 has functionally you samlag worshiper

Not only the front speakers make M8 taller, But the black stripe too. See M7 is more balanced form.

By the way the front speakers are BS for smartphones.
Do you want me to explain it again?

Are you blind? LOL
The down and upper bezels of the iPhone are much , much, much bigger than S5. The side bezels are about same.
The high quality plastic and the fiber glass that S5 use is much better choice, than ALUMINUM (the worst material for smartphones)

"The HTC Tech Duo IS back"
They're being described as one entity, therefore is and not are would be correct.

Once HTC gives it an actual camera and not a gimmick camera, I would make the switch.

This is really it. I wish HTC would just STFU until they fix the camera.

If you go from the M7 go the M8 like i did then you'll think the camera is great

Ignorance is bliss. Until you try a different phone and see how HTC sold you a cheap gimmick camera.
