HTC, however, has given it a set of specs that put it more alongside the dirt-cheap Moto G than the One M8. This is definitely not the flagship One M8 in a more compact form. If style is of the utmost importance, it's worth checking out, but the Moto G is much better value.
It lacks high-flying hardware, but this 5.25-inch smartphone could appeal to those shopping for a big-screen phone.
