HTC has launched its 2014 flagship smartphone, the One (M8), a successor to last year’s award winning M7 in Pakistan.

It seems, the company has finally given importance to users’ feedback as they have launched HTC One in the market for a price range between Rs. 70,000 to Rs. 75,000 with a bigger screen, a sleek design, and an improved camera with many new innovative features with one year warranty of Brightex.

According to the reviews, M8 is definitely everything the One wasn’t, and it’s probably the best HTC to date too.

M8 features a similar design to the last year’s flagship device but now with 90% metal and curves, giving it a premium look. On the inside, it is packed with 4.4 KitKat android software.

M8 comes with a second camera and HTC claims that the M8’s second camera gives users the ability to refocus any photo you take. The feature works well in a shot where everything is in focus and you want to emphasize a particular person or object.

In addition, you can also alter your photo’s angle by tilting the screen with Dimension Plus.

The dual flash feature of M8 is designed to balance skin tones like the one on iPhone 5s. It also adds a Slow Motion mode for HD slo-mo video capture. There are also full manual controls for things like ISO and exposure.
