HTC One M8 Camera & AT&T 4G LTE Network Performance

HTC One M8 Software

The camera on the HTC One M8 has plenty of settings that you can tweak depending on the type of pictures, lighting, or any other variable that will effect the picture.

HTC One M8 Software

The HTC One M8 has a couple of different options that you can choose for the camera mode. Among them is a ‘Selfie’ mode that uses the screen to show you what the front facing camera is seeing. We can also switch between the standard camera, Dual capture, Video, Pan 360, and the Zoe camera. The Zoe camera allows you to make your own mini-movies in only seconds. The Zoe camera takes a handful of pictures and videos that you choose and blends them to together. From there you can share them with friends and they can add to the movie!

Switching between the front camera and the Duo-camera is as easy as swiping the screen.

I was impressed by the camera on the HTC One M8. Each of the various shots I took while out shopping turned out great and the HTC One M8 really brought out the colors of the flowers and the details in the various fruits.

The HTC One M8 camera features the ability to burst shoot pictures. You can see above that I was able to take a series of pictures of the roses and each one is just a hair different

HTC One M8 AT&T 4G LTE Network Peroformance

The AT&T network performance in the Chicago area has never been much an issue. The AT&T 4G LTE network keeps improving and getting faster and the HTC One M8 is easily able to take advantage of the AT&T 4G LTE Network. Running the Speedtest.net app on the HTC One M8 I was able hit and impressive 62.35Mbps download speed which is the fastest I’ve seen of all the devices that I’ve tested. This particular run had an upload speed of 8.22 Mbps, other runs of the Speedtest.net app were hitting over 17Mbps upload speeds! As a quick comparison, my Comcast cable internet connection only hits ~28Mbps download and ~6Mbps upload speeds.
