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.

Nokia X+ – Mobile World Congress 2014

Nokia-X-2

Nokia X+, Nokia X  Both Same Spec Smartphones Running Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 Nokia Android UI (tiled look) Bothe Devices Dual Sim,(Not sure about the performance Eg: In Samsung s Dous Dual SIM phone in case if  we trying with 2 Sims phone get stuck) Weight 130g Both same. 480 x 800 PX 4.0 inches display with multi-touch. (2 fingers) internal 4GB Memory and Micro Sd supported up to 32GB, 4Gb Installed Default.  Ram Card the one and only difference between Nokia X and Nokia X+.  WiFi, Gprs Bluetooth included. Camera 3.15 MP 20148×1536 with Panorama, Video 480 @ 30 groups.  No Secondary Camera in both devices.  Cost Qualcomm MSM8225  Snapdragon S4 Play, Dual core 1 GHz Cortex A5 processor, Available in Bright green, bright red, cyan, yellow, black, white. Nokia Launched 3 New Smartphones in World Mobile Congress 2014. In that Nokia X and Nokia X+ both almost same specs. But prices wise Nokia X+ in a bit more.  My opinion is instead of launching  3 Smartphones  Launch One Hight end Smartphone and one mid range phone. But Nokia trying 3 mid range Smartphones at once.  Let’s wait till new Quarter and see how the Mid range phones reaching the market.

Main disadvantage(GSM Arena)

  • Weak LED flash
  • Non-user-replaceable battery
  • Below average loudspeaker performance (probably due to level of waterproofing)

This Smartphone is bit better range on the market and when is compared with Apple iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s  size wise both Smartphones are same and even compares with Samsung Galaxy S4 this mobile big range. Now days Sony is creating very high and classy range of Smartphones. Most of them love the Sony Xperia Z series theme it gives a better feeling when using it.
