With the Samsung Galaxy S5 not quite the Android leader we wanted, there's room for a new flagship to assume its throne. On paper and in hand, the One (M8) from HTC could be the smartphone to do just that.
Fantastic design and solid construction; Intuitive and responsive Sense 6 UI; Strong processing and multitasking capability; Relatively well priced
HTC proprietary keyboard slightly inaccurate; Volume button oddly placed
On the whole, if you're an Android fan or simply looking to make the move from one of the other OS' to a flagship device, you'll be hard pressed to find a better option than the HTC One (M8). When you add to the mix, its R9 000 price tag, you'll be hard pressed to find a better alternative to the Galaxy mainstay.
