Released in 2014, the HTC One M8 X has a Snapdragon 801, a 4 Ultrapixel camera and a large 5 inch display. The display on the HTC One M8 has a resolution of 1080 x 1920, giving it an impressive pixel density of 441. The 4 Ultrapixel camera can shoot some fairly impressive results, although it doesn’t quite live up to the best smartphone camera available in 2015 and 2016. With that being said, it is surprising what HTC managed to do with a 4 megapixel dual camera setup, as opposed to a single higher resolution camera. On the inside the HTC One M8 X has a quad core 2.5GHz Krait 400 processor, an Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM. The 2014 HTC flagship also has a 2,600mAh battery and either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. MicroSD support allows the device to have an additional 128GB of storage too.

For software, the HTC One M8 X is running Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box but an upgrade is already available for Android 5.0 Lollipop. Finally, an Android 6.0 Marshmallow upgrade is also being worked on by HTC.
