Description

The new HTC One (M8) comes with a radically different than all else 'Duo' camera (this refers to the two rear cameras on its back) that allows you things like selecting the focus of an image after you capture it.The new One also comes with the latest Snapdragon 801 quad-core system chip, an even more intense aluminum unibody construction, and 25% more powerful BoomSound front-facing stereo speakers. And it's not just that - HTC has improved the phone all around, even adding expandable storage via microSD cards of up to 128 gigs. Actually, the only change we can think of in the new One that could possibly bring forth some negativism is the increased overall footprint of the device - it's just larger and a bit bulkier.

  • Resolution:
    • 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 441 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
