As we have all seen, HTC One M8 is finally official and most of the rumors we have previously seen turned out to be true. But do you know that HTC One M8 is already available in the US from AT&T, Sprint and Verizon Wireless? Pricing options might not be so different, but we are sure that you already have your favorite carrier, so taking a decision might not be as easy as you have first imagined. So, here we have three offers and it’s the perfect time to see which one is the best:
HTC One M8 from AT&T
If you want to buy your HTC One M8 from AT&T with a two-year agreement, we are talking about $199.99 per month, while the contract free option is of no less than $639.99. This price might not be something that you all afford, so don’t forget that the carrier offers you a third option as well: what do you say about its AT&T Next 12 calls plan for twenty monthly $32 payments, while the AT&T Next 18 one requests twenty-six payments of $24.62? Is it better this way?
HTC One M8 from Sprint
When it comes to Sprint’s HTC One M8 offer, we can find the same two-year agreement or $199.99, , but the contract-free smartphone is a little more expensive at $649.99. Anyway, you can also choose to pay $27.09 per month for twenty-four months for your HTC One M8, or you can choose the best option with no contract included.
HTC One M8 from Verizon
Yes, the best offer that we are talking about comes from Verizon which is offering the handset for no more than $599.99 without a contract (which is the lowest contract-free price of all these US carriers). But if you still cannot afford paying the entire price, then HTC One M8 can also be yours for $199.99 with a two-year agreement, or for $25.22 a month with Verizon Edge.
So, Verizon’s HTC One M8 seems to be the winner in the contract-free case, but we know that if you’re already used with another carrie,r it might be difficult to make the change now. The decision is all yours, so be careful about what you’ll do!
HTC One M8 has Amazing Specs and Features
As for those of you who didn’t had enough time to review the amazing specs and features of this device after its official launch, here we are to tell you about the most important ones: HTC’s One M8 screen has been changed from a 4.7″ to 5″, but the 1080p resolution is the same one found on its predecessor. Power-wise, this device gets the power from a Snapdragon 801 chipset with a 2.3 GHz Krait 400 processor (this version is for Africa, Europe, US and Middle East) or from a higher-clocked 2.5 GHz Krait 400 CPU (this model is for Asia), coming along with an Adreno 330 GPU and 2 GB of RAM.
When it comes to its internal storage, here we have two options: 16 GB or 32 GB, but don’t forget that this device allows expansion up to 128 GB by using its microSD card slot. As for the camera, HTC One M8 comes with a 4MP camera with 2 micron-sized pixels and a second camera located above that HTC calls this Duo Camera. And there’s from where the differences come from: this camera mimics the stereoscopic abilities of a human eye, offering us not one, but actually two independent lenses which are perfectly able to calculate the distance of the subjects in any image. And it even effects interesting effects among we can mention post-shot refocusing or selective focus.
And don’t forget about its front-facing BoomSound stereo speakers that we have all loved so much since their first arrival in the original One which are even said to be 25% louder this time.
Are you curious about HTC’s One M8 OS? The handset features the 4.4 KitKat version, but with Sense 6 on top that comes with the new Motion Launch, which lets you open the camera or unlock the device while the screen is still off. And finally, the Power Saving Mode is said to offer no less than up to 30 hours of battery life per single charge, using just 10% of the handset’s 2,600 mAh battery.
