Main Disadvantage is  the  4 MP Camera,  Some Tech Blogger mentions the major Black HTC logo area and no point of keeping so much of space in the place, but the HTC company mentioned that on the Black space Logo area behind that  sensor placed.  But when it’s looking at once, that’s given the odd look only,  The curved back and rounded metal edges deliver a superb feel in hand, while the traditionally placed on-screen navigation buttons are a welcome departure from the awkward dual-key setup of the previous model. 5″  Display that hitting most of the attention from other Smartphones, The Battery life is more cool 3G Talk time 21 hours and 9 hours web browsing, 11 hours and 14 min for video watching with 2600 mAh Battery.  Gorilla Glass 3 installed with this Smartphone so no scratches in the display, Running OS KitKat with Snap Dragon chipset Quad core 2.3Ghz Processor will rock, With all  HTC One M8 Devices 50Gb Google Drive free for 2 Years. And other basic things are included with TV Out. 

HiPanda Tech Rating  7/10.

2014 Onward Samsung Phone to be made out of aluminum

2014-Samsung-phones-to-be-made-out-of-aluminum-Galaxy-S5-might-be-the-first

Next Year All the Samsung phone going to make with aluminum, So Samsung Galaxy S5 can be the first aluminum phone from Samsung.  When it’s coming with Aluminum body cover Samsung should consider about the phone’s weight and heat system.   Earlier Days Nokia also made some aluminum metal phones but while we are talking on the phone the heat goes high. HTC One series cant see any complaints about the heat. If Samsung consider about the heat and weight they can reach the more Smartphones market.

Nokia Trying Balance their Smartphone market

1200-nokia-lumia-820-red-and-yellow

 

Last few years Nokia Struggling to hold the Smartphone Market, But all these days Nokia is one Major company that gives high end smartphones for very cheap prices.  Cheaper Lumias have helped Nokia double its year-over-year Lumia sales to the 7.4 million it reported last quarter. But still we can that Nokia captured the steady market but some how they moving. We can Divide the smartphones market like 3 stages 1st level- Android and iOS  2nd level – Windows and Blackberry 3rd level – Asha OS and Symbian and other OSs  in this chart we didn’t ad Ubuntu Mobile Os and Firefox Mobile Os because now only these to newbies joined the club lets see what going to happen with the future. So Nokia’s Windows smartphones in the second level with cheapest market prices. Still Nokia is in better place than Blackberry, Specially Nokia’s Cam Quality is more famous, Now Day Nokia trying to promote their products in all kind of media even social media pages getting updates all the time they making registry for the people all the time. Some of Famous Celebrities used some Lumia series (flo rida and jeccia alba). Nokia got small issues when it comparing with Google play store and iTunes less app collections they have but still improving so we can see Nokia Reach the 1st level mobile OS section or going to keep up the same level.

HTC Second Time loosing the Race

HTC Second Quarter they are facing the loose and Second Quarter they did better job when compare with First Quarter. By still the didn’t reached their margin.

With the Boosting of  HTC One Sale the Came up to 83% of their Second Quarter target. The main thing HTC One Released on April 2013, But it suppose to release on March 2013. At the same time Samsung Also Launched their Samsung S4 so Samsung and HTC had very Closed Hot Competition. If not HTC Will reach their Second Quarter target easily. In this Competition Samsung Company Sold 10 Million S4 Devices with is a month.

Last month in Taiwan, HTC also launched a new 5-inch smartphone, called the Butterfly s, that could end up other markets later this year.

The Taiwanese smart phone maker also unveiled the HTC Desire 600, a mid-tier Android handset with a price of NT$12,900 (US$430). It has a 4.5-inch screen, and a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor from Qualcomm. The phone is due to arrive in Taiwan this July.

There was one small silver lining for HTC: Profit was slightly up, quarter on quarter, from the record low of NT$85 million that HTC reported in the first quarter.

Updates about HTC First (Facebook Phone) in other blogger

htc-first-slide-01

ARS TECHNICA’S FLORENCE ION:

The First is a very stylish, well-built phone, once again proving that HTC has a penchant for design.

The Chat Heads feature can best be described as the roommate who quietly knocks on the door and then cracks it open to see if you’re busy. Chat Heads try hard not to distract you so that you can continue to multitask, but they want to subtly alert you that someone has sent you a message.

I can see the placement of the micro-USB port becoming a bit of an issue in situations where the phone is charging and it needs to be laid horizontally or placed in a car holster for navigation. It’s also awkward trying to type with both hands when the phone is plugged in.

The screen size wasn’t much of an issue except when reading e-books and text-heavy webpages. Fortunately, there is an option in the Settings menu to make the font bigger, which actually helped significantly.

In performance tests, the First had results similar to the Samsung Galaxy S III. It appears that Home doesn’t use up that much battery life either, despite its ingrained status within the Android operating system. Overall, the handset was fast and speedy. It didn’t feel like a mid-range handset.

HTC Sideview

THE VERGE’S DIETER BOHN:

Because of its small size, the First is a pleasure to hold. It nestles comfortably in one hand in a way that few popular Android phones do these days.

Text is perfectly readable at nearly 90 degrees.

The screen is very difficult to see in bright sunlight. The First’s camera feels like a throwback to an earlier age when smartphones were nigh-useless in the dark.

Video on the First is equally forgettable, amplifying hand-shake and displaying the jelly movement effect so common on low-end cameras.

The HTC First is running stock Android 4.1.2, almost completely unpolluted with apps from AT&T or HTC.

If you’re a Facebook devotee, or just want a cheap phone that runs well, by all means check out the First (but test the camera before you leave the store). If you absolutely want a smaller-sized Android phone with LTE, the First is probably the best option out there right now.

Overall score of 7.9 out of 10

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL’S WALT MOSSBERG:

I found Facebook Home to be easy to use, elegantly designed and addictive. Although I’m a regular Facebook user, I found that, with Home, I paid more attention than ever to my news feed,

The idea is that during spare moments—say, while waiting in a line—you’ll get immediately hooked by Facebook.

Facebook Home blocks the one-step camera icon some Android phone makers place on their lock screen to allow you to take pictures without first unlocking the phone.

With Home, Facebook is essentially staging a land grab of Android. Because it’s so dominant, it makes it less likely that a user with limited time will launch Google products that compete with Facebook, such as Google’s own social network, Google+, or rival services from other companies, such as Twitter.

ENGADGET’S BRAD MOLEN:

Since the First was built to impress the Facebook-savvy, we shouldn’t be surprised that this is one of the most playful-looking handsets HTC has ever made.

We also need to point out the lack of an LED notification light, which seems like a huge oversight given Facebook Home’s heavy emphasis on alerts and other notifications.

Unfortunately, there’s no option to add widgets or folders.

By far, our greatest concern with Home is the impact that it could potentially have on data usage, since it dynamically updates Facebook’s news feed in the background. Fortunately, Facebook includes a three-tier data usage and image quality setting (high, medium and low). The toggle becomes handy for smaller data plans or if you’re getting close to your limit, but oddly a WiFi-only option isn’t available. In our testing, we consumed 93MB in four days on the medium setting; at that pace, Home would snatch up 698MB in a month. Think about it this way: if you have a 2GB plan, Facebook Home would take up more than one-quarter of your data allotment, on the medium plan alone. Now imagine how much the high-usage scenario destroys the average consumer’s data plans. Use Home responsibly, folks.

Widget lovers will quickly become frustrated by their inability to access their favorite ones without jumping into the stock launcher each time

Fortunately, the 2,000 mAh Lithium-polymer cell was enough to keep us going for 14 hours of solid use, with Home running on medium usage the entire time.

All of our cellular connections have been consistently good and the volume was more than sufficient.

It’s aesthetically pleasing, and surprisingly polished for a 1.0 product.

In its current state, Home isn’t the best fit for productivity-minded people, although it does offer a bit of mindless entertainment for anyone just looking to burn a minute or two throughout the day

To put it bluntly, Home won’t convert non-Facebookers into believers, and it won’t encourage people to sign up for the service; it will be a failure in that sense. It may, however, turn casual users into more habitual Likers, commenters and posters, and we have a feeling this is exactly the kind of success Facebook is hoping to reap.

GIGAOM’S OM MALIK:

Facebook has made Android faster by removing a lot of crud that typically ships with Android on carrier-branded phones.

For a service that is supposed to bring us updates in real time, this isn’t close enough. You can actually feel the slow speed (and infrequency of updates) of the feed when you compare it with the desktop feed which moves at a faster pace.

The phone has a soft-touch rubber design which is easy to grip and it is something I appreciate because my phone keeps dropping from my hand.

THE NEW YORK TIMES’ DAVID POGUE:

On the app launcher: If it sounds confusing, that’s because it is. In removing the app-launching function from the Home screen, Facebook has wound up having to reinvent the way you open programs on your phone, and the result feels like a hack.

Chat Heads are fun and effective, but Facebook’s engineers appear to have overlooked one small detail: Chat Heads are useful only when you receive a message. How are you supposed to initiate a conversation? For that, you have to duck into your app-launcher screen and fire up the Facebook or Facebook Messaging app.

What does Home add, really? Yes, the ability to see incoming posts on your Home screen; you save one tap. But is it worth losing widgets, wallpaper, app folders and the Android status bar in the process?

TECHCRUNCH’S MG SIEGLER:

It’s really good. I like the HTC First with Facebook Home (the official name, I think) more than the Nexus 4, but less than the iPhone 5.

[On Cover Feed] It’s surprisingly addictive…because you can swipe to scroll through these images/statuses all without unlocking the phone.

I think Facebook has really nailed the interaction element on the home screen. I actually wish I could use Instagram and other visual feeds this way as well

On top of that are the beautiful, elegant notifications that Facebook has created. Simply put: I like them more than both Android and iOS notifications. They feature big, clear app icons (or a person’s face if it’s a Facebook notification) and a snippet of the message you’re receiving.

I’ll be curious to see Facebook Home running on other hardware like the Galaxy SIV, but I think the fact that you won’t be able to get third-party notifications would be a deal-breaker for me.

[On password entry]: This is where things start to get a little weird…sometimes you’ll be asked to enter your password from the app list, sometimes before it.

Even weirder is that you can actually do a few types of Facebook actions — both liking and commenting — without entering any password. In fact, there’s no way to password protect these actions, as far as I can tell. Someone could definitely take your phone and leave comments galore on your friends pictures, no questions asked.

Chat Heads. Awful name not withstanding, this is absolutely how messaging should be done on a smartphone. Rather than making you open a separate app to get and respond to messages, Chat Heads put a user’s face…on top of whatever you’re doing on your phone.

[On design flourishes] These touches, while seemingly trivial, give me the same type of feeling I get when using iOS. You can tell that a lot of time and care has been put into the user experience here and it shows, in spades.

Still, it’s hard to believe this is only Facebook’s first take at Home. This is a very polished and impressive first entry into the space
