Yeah… The new HTC One (M8) is here finally. What are the new features that catch my eyes? The duo camera. It lets you control the focus point of foreground and background. The second camera helps to capture the depth of the scene so you can have better bokeh effect like SLR camera with UFocus. Better front facing camera. External MicroSD card supported but come with 16GB model only (for the moment, 32GB model comes later). Better processor – Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 likes Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2.
Finally, I found a working infrared remote control for Samsung Galaxy S4. Yup, DSLR Remote by bitshift is the one. And the best part – it is free and no ads. DSLR Remote supports both infrared and cable. You can use DSLR Remote IR Dongle for Android smartphone without built-in infrared. Or use IR Blaster for HTC One and Samsung Galaxy series like Galaxy Tab 7.0 plus, Galaxy Tab 7.7 plus, Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Galaxy Note 10.1 and Galaxy S4. And supports most of the digital SLR out there like Canon, Fujifilm, Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax and Sony. Yes, it supports my Canon EOS 5D Mark III. I don’t need to bring Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote with me anymore.
HTC Malaysia had a special trade in program last month ~ HTC One X to HTC One for RM999. However, that was at KL only. But they extended to several places like Selangor, Kuching, Sibu, Penang & Johor Bahru and new dates until 13th October. Too bad that I missed the chance at Penang again. Anyway, I have a question in my mind – does it worth to trade in HTC One X for HTC One at RM999?
HTC One vs Samsung Galaxy S4. Which one will survive in year 2013? Well, HTC One X lost the battle with Samsung Galaxy S3 last year. Faced lot of issues on my HTC One X. I was hoping that HTC One X can perform better than my legendary HTC HD2. I put too much hope on HTC One X and it failed terribly. On the other hand, Samsung Galaxy S3 is a developer friendly device. And I do not face issue on both software and hardware. So does it mean that Galaxy S4 will win this year too? Time will tell…
