The recently launched HTC One M8 has some compelling features that tech enthusiasts can't ignore. The flagship smartphone will have to take on Samsung Galaxy S5 and iPhone 5S.

Here's a look at the top three features of the device:

Ergonomic Design

HTC One M8 features a curved wraparound unibody frame. The design allows the users to use the device for longer calls without much strain on the fingers. The metal frame of the device makes it stylish and elegant. With the industry moving toward bigger screens, the challenge that smartphone manufacturers face is that of bringing a bigger screen device which is not difficult to handle with one hand. The curved back of HTC One M8 makes it easy to hold in spite of the bigger screen size of the device. The device has a 5-inch Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen, rendering 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution. It has 146.4 mm x 70.6 mm x 9.4 mm dimensions and weighs 160 grams.

Camera

HTC One M8's camera features some exciting tools. The tools allow the user to remove blurry results, take bigger panoramic pictures and add effects to the photos already taken. The panoramic pictures can be taken using the Pan 360 tool. The tool allows for 180 x 360 degree views. The user can change the focus of the picture, even after the picture is taken. This feature allows the user to bring the blurry object into focus and make the focused object blurry.

The primary camera on the device is a dual 4 MP camera with autofocus and dual LED flash. The secondary camera on the device is 5 MP. It must be noted that a higher MP does not mean a better camera. HTC One M8 uses a bigger pixel size to deliver good picture quality, the device uses ultra pixels.

Speakers

HTC One M8 is perhaps best known for its speakers. The device has dual front-facing speakers that deliver incredible audio. The speakers come with customized software to adjust the audio output, depending on the situation. The speakers on the device deliver up to 95 db of sound. The device also comes with the bass to treble balancing software. The software senses the room temperature and automatically makes adjustments to the power and protect the speakers from damage.
