The HTC One M8

The HTC One M8 is the latest flagship phone from HTC and the phone that they hope will reverse their fortune over the past few years.

The reasoning for the M8 code is that M stands for Metal and 8 stands for the generation of the metal phone. This particular phone is the eight metal phone released by HTC.

The HTC One M8 has a large 5 inch screen and has premium metal feel and look. The screen is full HD and has a resolution of 1920 x 1080.  The phone is super fast due to it’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad core processor.

The device comes with the standard 2GB of RAM on board and a 16GB hard drive for Australian markets. The device has a 4.1 Ultra pixel camera and a better than normal 5MP front facing camera.

Interestingly, the camera on the M8 has a new depth technology which gives pictures the sense of depth.

The phone is currently available for pre-order with the carriers. You can view HTC One M8 comparisons here.



The Apple iPhone 6 rumours

The Apple iPhone 5s has only been released but in the technology world, the device is old news and all the attention is being turned to the design of the Apple iPhone 6.

There are already many rumours floating around and what is true and what is false is yet to be determined. There are however a couple of things that are a definite. Apple needs to come up with a bigger screen iPhone. As people are becoming more dependent on their phones for other functions, a bigger screen is becoming a necessity.  Therefore, it is highly likely that Apple will make the iPhone 6 with a bigger screen or make it an option.

The Apple iPhone 6 is anticipated to have a 5 inch screen and will be 6mm thick making it the biggest screen and thinnest iPhone to date. Apple iPhone 6 plans are expected to be expensive of course but the positive is that Apple iPhone 5s deals will be reasonable.
