  • How do you succeed a smartphone like last spring’s HTC One?

  • A phone so roundly praised

  • it’s still winning awards a year after its release

  • In other words, how do you top yourself?

  • Well if youre HTC, you take what you did the first time , and make it better!

  • That’s the company’s strategy with the all-new HTC One for 2014.

  • But can the company capture lightning in a bottle twice?

  • That’s what were here to find out.

  • Youre watching PocketNow, I’m Michael Fisher,

  • and this is our video review of the all-new HTC One.

  • Beauty through craft

  • Beauty through purity

  • Beauty through simplicity

  • These were the tenets HTC worked under when designing the new M8

  • and the end result is stunning piece of hardware.

  • Available in three colors, probably the most striking is our gun metal gray test unit

  • whose aluminium casing bears a brushed hairline finish

  • that sets it apart without going overboard

  • But a quick look isn’t enough.

  • To fully appreciate the craftsmanship of the new HTC One

  • you need to hold it

  • The cool metal casing is completely seamless in the hand.

  • The contours and wide radius corners feeling almost impossibly smooth against the palm.

  • While the crisp chamfers and machine speakers grilles are front

  • pay on march to its predecessor

  • It’s a little on the tall side

  • and at a 160 grams that’s definitely not lightweight

  • but the extra mass works for it rather than against it

  • The 5-inches SLCD3 display is gorgeous beneath its protective Gorilla glass 3 panel

  • And while the extra camera sensor around back isn’t necessarily attractive

  • It’s not quite prominent enough on the gray version at least to take away the phone’s overall look.

  • Once again, HTC has crafted a beauty of a smartphone.

  • That beauty continues beneath the surface.

  • The Snapdragon 801 processor ensures a long use of a lifetime

  • backed up by 2 gigabytes of RAM ,16 or 32 gigs of storage

  • plus a micro SD card slot capable of supporting an additional 128 gigabytes

  • HTC also offers 50 gigs of Google Drive storage free for two years with the new device

  • so those in need of lots of space on the go should feel right at home here

  • At 2600 milli ampere Li-Po battery provides power but it’s not removable.

  • For connectivity, there’s Bluetooth 4.0 dual band WiFi and IR port

  • and 3G and 4G radio packages depending on region

  • There’s also a new center hub controlling the gyro and accelerometer package

  • giving the One a degree of contextual awareness.

  • That awareness enables some useful additions to the M8 some software.

  • Most visible and convenient are the new gesture based unlock features

  • which allow you to tap or swipe on the screen to unlock the phone

  • or launch certain apps

  • This is an idea weve seen used great effect elsewhere.

  • But here, unfortunately, it’s a little inconsistent.

  • To save on battery life and to minimize accidentally screen wake ups,

  • HTC has made the gestures contingent on moving the phone first.

  • So while theyre very convenient when taking the phone out of a pocket for example,

  • theyre less handy when it’s stationary sitting on a table.

  • You still have to reach up to that power standby key annoyingly still located on the top of the phone to wake it up.

  • These gestures are very smart shortcuts,

  • we just wished they worked a little more reliably.

  • For the new one, HTC has brought a new version of its third party a lot.

  • Sense 6.0 running a top Android 4.4.2.

  • It’s very similar to the sense we know and love from last year’s one.

  • It’s straightforward, stylish, and almost impossible to trip up.

  • The sombre minimalism of last year’s version has given a way to a slightly more jovial approach in 2014

  • with accent colors and a brighter feel overall

  • Were not crazy about the entire pallet but it’s nice to have options for changing up the look of the software

  • Of course, Blink Feed is back and more customizable than ever

  • allowing you to blend social news and custom search feeds into one stream of curated data

  • with plug-ins for calendar appointments, locally stored photos and third party apps like FitBit.

  • The new Blink Feed is kind of like a modern take on the old today’s screen from the Windows mobile date.

  • It’s much more than just a Flipboard clone.

  • Other changes across Sense 6 are more subtle.

  • The new on-screen button configuration makes a lot of sense.

  • The multitasking panes are easier to see

  • and if youre a fan of controlling your home entertainment from your smartphone,

  • Sense TV works better than ever.

  • In the midst of all these improvements,

  • there is one disappointment lurking on the M8 spec sheet at least in terms of metrics,

  • the camera.

  • HTC has decided that 4 megapixels was fine for 2013 and so it’s also plenty for 2014.

  • And what’s more? The company has also done away the optical image stabilization.

  • Now there are solid reasons for this.

  • HTC told us that the OIS is incompatible with its new approach to photography

  • which uses the dedicated depth center of the dual camera to reduce focused time

  • and to enable more arty photos.

  • Adjusting photos after taking a photo is a very cool trick

  • And while it doesn’t always work perfectly,

  • those who appreciate bouquet effects will no doubt have some fun with this.

  • Also, while 4 megapixels is still pretty paltry sounding,

  • it’s important to note that it’s not the same sensor as last year’s according to HTC.

  • Well it’s kind of ridiculous that the primary camera has a lower resolution than the 5 megapixel front-facing one,

  • it’s still capable of some very nice shots.

  • Low-light performance is still a high point, though the lower the light, the noisier the photo

  • and you can still expect some overexposure in some shots.

  • The real improvements of the camera are in software which has been a completely rethought.

  • The new viewfinder is still not as an idiot proof for Samsung’s or Motorola’s

  • but what it lacks in fluidity, it makes up for in-features.

  • Dual capture has been added.

  • There’s a 360 degree panorama option.

  • All the fun filters are here and manual settings can now be saved as preset.

  • Best of all, HTC’s celebrated Zoe features back now with its own app

  • which will eventually allow for crowd sourced videos.

  • You also get more editing options to hone highlights.

  • HTC absolutely dominates this area.

  • There’s no easier way to whip up a quick summary about house party for example.

  • And the stock effects do a nice job of covering up whatever deficiencies might exist in the raw footage.

  • On the video front, were not looking at anything special here.

  • The software stabilization does an okay job of keeping the shots steady even walking

  • but it’s not quite as smooth as on the original one.

  • Frame rate seems to suffer a bit as quick movements do.

  • And the plus side: colors are nice and rich,

  • exposure and autofocus are plenty fast

  • and sound capture is excellent.

  • Focus autocorrect,

  • the sun going in and coming out willy nilly today

  • but there’s our exposure correction and hopefully you got a sense from my walk earlier

  • just how well stabilization works on this device

  • We tested the all new HTC One over a 6-day period between Boston and New York City.

  • Our demo unit is a UK edition so we were confined with 3G here in the States

  • but we encountered no reception difficulties on AT&T and our voice calls were clear.

  • Callers reported that the phone’s noise cancellation work well

  • and we especially enjoyed the feature of just putting the ringing phone to our ear to answer it.

  • HTC’s BoomSound has become one of the company’s most celebrated offerings over the past year.

  • And the all new one takes it to a whole new level.

  • You won’t find a pair of louder, richer, better balanced speakers anywhere.

  • Something youll be reminded of every time you stream a song, play a loud game or watch a movie.

  • Speaking of gaming, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Snapdragon 801 has no trouble handling even the most demanding titles.

  • Asphalt 8 plays very smoothly in full resolution

  • as do Riptide GP2 and Sky Gamblers Air Supremacy.

  • If you can think of an Android game, the new one can handle it... no sweat.

  • As usual though, go easy on the gaming if you want the phone’s power pack to last.

  • While HTC’s new Xtreme Power Saver will help out once to get down to the drag of your battery,

  • that just covers the basic

  • We have more detailed information on battery life in our full written review link in the description below.

  • In the world of smartphones, the very best products are those which deliver consistency across the physical and the virtual.

  • HTC did it with the first one last year and it’s done it again with the M8.

  • From its refined almost luxury grade construction,

  • to its rock solid feature-packed software, the all new HTC One is an absolutely stunning smartphone.

  • It’s not quite a Grand Slam.

  • We’d like to have seen more from its camera,

  • and some of its new features are less consistent than they should be.

  • But looking at the Android landscape in 2014, it’s tough to see any competitor

  • being able to live up to the all-around quality this package delivers.

  • Put simply, HTC has done it again.

  • Once again for photo’s benchmark scores and much more granular information on the all-new HTC One,

  • check out our full review.

  • It’s link in the description down below.

  • But also youre on Youtube, we have a whole lot more including the comparison of the older HTC One

  • and unboxing and a broader examination of HTC versus Samsung in 2014.
