HTC M8 hardware and software shown off in 12 minute hands-on video
If you’ve been fascinated by the HTC M8 leaks, boy do we have a surprise for you. A 12 minute hands-on video of an AT&T branded HTC M8 test model has just hit YouTube, showing off the handset’s brushed silver unibody chassis, dual-camera setup and HTC Sense 6.0. The teenage boy who posted the video most likely received the handset from a parent who works at AT&T (we hope HTC doesn’t raise too much of a fuss, but we’d imagine someone isn’t going to have a good day when they go into work on Monday.
From what we can tell, HTC Sense 6.0 isn’t a huge leap forward in terms of design, but the UI does have a few new tweaks which are immediately notifiable. HTC has toned down its use of graphics in the settings menu, the camera has a completely new look and BlinkFeed appears lighter and more intuitive than before. As you can imagine, the software on the HTC M8 is a bit buggy, but that’s what we’d expect since the video was shot in mid-February.
