The HTC One M7, last year’s flagship, is still a solid smartphone and one that consumers should certainly take a look at this month. However, we think there are five other smartphones that consumers would be wise to consider before taking the plunge with the HTC One M7 in the month of August.
Last year, HTC introduced the HTC One, a device that replaced the HTC One X and HTC One X+ as the company’s flagship smartphone model. The HTC One, or HTC One M7 as it’s now known, debuted with a number of high-end features including a gorgeous aluminum design that was and still is on par with the iPhone, a spacious 4.7-inch 108op display, a fantastic Ultrapixel camera, tons of storage space, and the company’s Sense software over Android.
Thanks to its hardware, updated software that now includes Android 4.4.3 KitKat, and a price tag that’s as affordable as ever, the HTC One M7 is still a solid option for those trying to buy into the HTC ecosystem without breaking the bank. Unsurprisingly, we’ve heard from a number of consumers who are interested in last year’s HTC One.
We are constantly bombarded with questions about which phones to buy. In particular, we’re constantly asked about the phones consumers should weigh against the HTC One M7. There are a number of different devices that we could recommend, the smartphone market is full of solid choices, but we want to narrow things down a bit and take a look at what we consider to be the top five.
These smartphones represent the devices that we’d recommend to friends and family. And while our list may differ from yours, these are the devices that Gotta Be Mobile editors have selected for recognition this month. We feel like the devices listed here deliver the best, all-around package for this month and this month alone.
That said, here are the top five smartphones to consider before buying the HTC One M7.
HTC One M8
Without question, those taking a look at the HTC One M7 will also want to consider the HTC One M8, the current HTC One. The HTC One M8 is one of the best smartphones on the market and thanks to a cheap price, it's worth comparing to last year's version of the HTC One.
HTC's new One M8 smartphone comes with an impressive sheet of features which include a larger 5-inch full HD display, speedy processor for games and multitasking, an impressive UltraPixel camera, an improved design, a microSD card slot, and more. It also features HTC's Sense 6 user interface.
Like the HTC One M7's price, the HTC One M8's price has dropped considerably since launch. It can now be had for around $100 or so on-contract. It's a smartphone that we think you need to rule out before buying into a smartphone that will turn two next year.
