Last year, HTC threw in a curve ball in the Android space by launching the HTC One (M7) to show their prowess in the design space. The One made a statement with its excellent build and no gap design to show what Android phones can look and feel like when comparing with the fruit. With the HTC One M8 and the M8 Harmon Kardon Edition (HK) they have done it again. They have shown that even though they are the underdog, they can still produce a quality product that has its unique features that consumers will love. With that I would like to discuss my favorite feature of the phone.
This device is perfect for media consumers. The M8 sports a full HD 5" 1080p Super LCD screen which delivers bright and crisp videos and images for you to consume. The size and shape of the phone make it easy to hold in the hand for extended periods of time. But that is not what is my favorite part. I love the front stereo speakers. So far no manufacturer has thought of putting in 2 stereo speakers in the front. They all put one either on the bottom (near the charger) or the back, which doesnt make sense, but HTC decided and implemented a perfect solution for media consumers. Take a look:
On the left and center, we have 2 pictures of HTC One M8's speakers and on the right we have the G2 speakers. You can guess where I am going with this.
Another issue, that makes it even more difficult to hear your content on the built in speakers is the case. With phones that have the speaker in the back (see below). Depending on how the case is designed and how tightly snug it is, the sound just vibrates within the case and you can barely hear anything. Agian with HTC's design, no case will even pose that threat!
As we all know, one of the most common uses of a big phone is to watch videos or play games. Sound is an integral part of this experience and I believe HTC is the king here. Now add the Harmon Kardon experience into the mix and you are looking at an even more elevated experience for enjoying your content.
So give HTC a try and see if you agree.
