HTC's previously released One M8 handset was a bit of a revelation, as far as advancement in technology is concerned. The handset was almost perfect in every sense, starting from the overall form to the enhanced camera in the back.

Apart from the Quad Core processor Snapdragon 801 clocked at 2.5 GHz, the phone also comes with Adreno 330 GPU coupled with 2 GB RAM. In terms of OS, it runs on Android 4.4 (KitKat) layered with the company's proprietary Sense 6.0 UI.
The Phone has already made into a lot of wishlists across the planet, although the pricing for it may not be everybody's cup of tea. But if you indeed have the unit, you should know a few basic yet cool tricks to make your experience even better.
