Rich Feature Smartphone by HTC to Woo the Masses
By Sukhleen

HTC has added a new eye catching invention HTC One M8 Harman Kardon Edition in the market. The phone is just an advancement to its predecessor, HTC One M8, with almost same features and specifications except the audio features.

It has been fueled with a battery of 2,600 mAh which is pretty good.

User Interface and Comfort to Use

Under the hood, the phone holds a powerful configuration. It has assembled 2.3 GHz Quad-Core processor and 2GB of RAM. It operates on the latest Android 4.2.2 KitKat Operating System with HTC sense. Along with that it has 16 / 32GB of in-built storage which can further be expanded up to 128GB. This makes it a really robustly configured smartphone.

Gallery, Photo Viewer and Video Player

There are lot of features to ease in viewing / editing photos and playing videos. It has the image viewer, image editor and video player already installed. Making itself unique from its rivals, the phone comes with a Harman Kardon headset. Its Clari- Fi technology restores the compressed music and LiveStage technology enhances the listening experience. Plus beautiful color combination of Grey-Gold  speakers and Black brushed back further increases its demand. The preloaded music player supports almost all the formats.
