  • Gimmicky camera; Annoying cover flap; No protection from the elements

HTC has unveiled its2014 flagship Android device - the HTC One M8. Upon first glance it looks identical to its predecessor the HTC One - but the Taiwanese firm has increased the screen size, processing power, added micro SD and gesture support.

The most noticeable change is the screen size. Packing a 5in full HD display (1920 x 1080), the M8 is bigger than its 4.7in predecessor. At 160g it's also 20g heavy because of the extra screen space.

HTC has continued with the unibody metallic chassis - and it gives the M8 a great look. The aluminum now extends to the edges of the device and the corners are not as sharp as they were on the previous One device. But we're not fans of the dull grey metallic colour.

With Sony and now Samsung introducing devices that are dustproof and waterproof - this is an area where the HTC falls behind. There is no protection from the elements here - so it's advisable to get a cover.
