Blending wonderful design, a gorgeous display, innovative rear camera, smart software, and the loudest speakers ever fitted to a phone, the HTC One (M8) is the Mobile Choice phone of the year.
There’s no doubt that 2014 will go down as a truly vintage year for smartphones. It was a year which saw a whole bunch of excellent, near-flawless phones from every major manufacturer across a range of sizes and prices - but the One (M8) was our favourite for combining everything we want from a phone into one device.
It wasn’t easy to pick a winner from this year’s excellent crop of flagship blowers - the iPhone 5s, Motorola Moto X, Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2 and Nokia Lumia 1020 were all in with a shout.
But when push came to shove, it was the One (M8) which came to the surface as a handset which offers everything from power and performance, to aesthetics and ergonomics.
