HTC One M8 Review

The HTC One M8 is a perfectly outlined telephone, surpassing the Galaxy S5 and far better looking than the appealing LG G3. HTC has obviously tried concentrating on the look and nature of the materials it has utilized, and has made them a plan need.

 

Much the same as the brilliant HTC One, the HTC One M8 is a generally metal telephone. HTC has picked in this occasion however, to put a greater amount of that smooth metal in plain view. Utilizing the organization’s own portrayal, where a year ago’s model has a back that is around 70 for each penny metal, the HTC One M8’s back is around 90 for every penny metal.

 

The two-tone plastic has been jettisoned for a one-piece metal back that bends around to meet the Gorilla Glass-employing screen. Another curvier plan gives the HTC One M8 a smoother feel than its antecedent, while saving the cool and strong feel you get from the telephones aluminum body.

Basic Solution of the common Problem Solution-

  1. Reboot your device in safe mode to know if third-party apps have something to do with the problem. In so doing, all third-party apps and services will be temporarily disabled and this immediately isolates the problem.
  2. If the phone is frozen and becomes unresponsive then try to attempt the Forced reboot or soft reset procedure, which will perform the simulated battery disconnect.
  3. We can suggest that you should delete all the system caches so that they’ll be replaced with new ones as they often get corrupted especially during firmware updates. You can do this by only booting your phone in Recovery mode and wipe the cache partition.
  4. If everything fails, it’s better to just backup your files and data and then do the Factory reset. This procedure will bring your phone back to its factory default settings while deleting every third-party files, data, apps, etc.
  5. It would be better if you do the Master reset, which, aside from bringing your phone back to its factory defaults, formats both the cache and data partitions and thoroughly delete possible corrupt system caches, files and data.
