Standing at 2.6m high and 1.72m wide, the giant replica of the company’s renowned Oktoberfest 2014 promotional mug, created a new record that was endorsed by The Malaysia Book of Records at the event. The Biggest Mug which took about a month to complete, is made out of fibre glass. The giant vessel, which can actually hold liquid, will be travelling the peninsular so consumers can have a closer look and partake in Malaysia’s Biggest Mug “Guess the Litre” challenge. The top 5 participants who provide the correct or closest estimated volume of liquid the receptacle can hold, wins a year’s supply of Tiger Beer.

HTC One M8 Review

P7164614

Once again, HTC proved to the market that they can be leading players in terms of innovation and also premium experience in their smartphone. I am lucky to be given a chance to review the brand new HTC One M8, a successor of the well received HTC One M7. If you're curious, i was an ex owner of the HTC One M7. Click here for my full review of HTC One M7. So now I am gonna talk about the new HTC One M8 here and what are the improvement over the old M7.

HTC One M8 Key Specification :



  • 5.0 inches Super LCD 3 screen with 1080 x 1920 of resolution
  • 2.5 GHz quad core Qualcomm MSM8974AB Snapdragon 801 processor with Krait 400
  • Andreno 330 GPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16 GB internal memory with microSD slot
  • Dual 4 MP Ultrapixel camera with dual-LED (dual tone) flash
  • 5MP front facing camera
  • 2600 mAh battery
  • Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat with Sense 6
  • 146.4 x 70.6 x 9.4 mm
  • 160 g


Design & Built Quality

The new One M8 is now full metal body! It has rounder edge and also thinner than the M7. Thanks to the curve back body as well, it feel so comfortable holding it despite the large screen. It just right on the hand with the curve behind. What's more, it is full metal built now that given a premium feel. Kudos to HTC for maintaining, or even improved it to make the One experience better! Probably the only thing I hate was the smooth surface on the back metal body (on One M7, the black version has rough surface texture).

User Interface (UI)



HTC One M8 running the latest sense 5.5 On quick glance, it has not much different than the previous Sense 5 on HTC One M7. But as the matter of fact, they do did some improvement on the UI. They listen to customers feedback!

- The Blinkfeed now can be turn off and on
- more source news on Blinkfeed
- Updated interface and new video highlight options on HTC Gallery

Camera

P7044602

While HTC might not leading in terms of Megapixels in camera, they actually did a very great job on their 4mp ultrapixel camera. Definitely not a great choice for pixel peeper. HTC introduces the secondary camera at the back which uses to capture depth information. HTC calls this Duo Camera.

It mimics the stereoscopic abilities of the human eye - two independent lenses able to calculate the relative distance of the subjects in an image. HTC's dual camera setup enables cool effects such as selective focus (shallow depth of field) and post-shot refocusing. Unfortunately the editing has limitation where only auto mode and without flash images taken by the camera can proceed the editing.

The optical image stabilization of the original One is now gone, and the One (M8) will rely solely on digital stabilization. Similarly to Apple, HTC has improved the flash of the smartphone by using a two toned one - one cold and one warm LED, which can help the smartphone produce more accurate color tones in low-light conditions. HTC also claims the One (M8) can focus in just 0.3s.

If that's not enough for you, HTC is generous enough to packed the front facing camera with 5 Megapixel for selfie lover.

Well I believe pics speak louder than words.

If you're curious, I have more photos in here including the comment I had on the camera. I brought it for street shooting and obviously, I enjoy it very much despite it wasn't my usual practise. Kudos to HTC again! Please make 8mp Ultrapixel for next gen!

Audio

P7164613

I am not audiophile, but HTC One M8 speaker is definitely loud and one of the best. Improved from the very best HTC One M7, what else are you gonna complain??

Battery

HTC One m8 easily can has 3-4 hours on screen time for a single full charge. On normal usage it can easily last me a day (unplug since 6am and battery almost died on 10-11pm). Of course, different people different usage and apps installed. For a guy like me who heavily used on social apps, One M8 battery definitely not disappointing.

Verdict

One of the best UI. CHECK!
One of the best dual stereo speaker. CHECK!
One of the best design. CHECK!
One of the best camera. Sort of. CHECK!

So what else are you gonna complain about HTC One M8? It might not the most perfect phone but for me, it is close to perfect! If only the megapixel are higher (let's say 8mp), I will definitely score full point to HTC One M8. Hopefully it happen on the next successor of One M8!

The HTC One comes with a variety of accessories like the Flip Case, Double Dip case (each in three colors), Dot View case (showing you alarms, events, calls, battery, weather and more in a colorful dotted way) and more. The HTC One is available now with RRP RM 2,399.
