Our review

The HTC One M8 is loaded with features and beautifully designed and built but the image quality of its camera cannot keep up with the otherwise great performance of the phone. Images show little detail and a variety of artifacts across the ISO range. Panorama and HDR modes produce underwhelming results and the DuoCam is in its current state of development not more than a gimmick. The One M8 can make a great device for gadget lovers without any imaging aspirations but mobile photographers are better served elsewhere.
