What do you expect from HTC One M8 Android phone?

Going back in December of 2013, a red HTC One is debuted in Hong Kong. Following the appearances of the said model in Chinese stores, some folks are talking about the possible plan of the Taiwan-based company to introduce an M8 version without a prior notice. This might be the closest competitor of Samsung Galaxy S5 which recently appeared in WMC 2014 in Barcelona along with Sony Xperia Z series.

However, the appearances of the said 5.5-inch portable device in Amazon and other online stores reminds me of what I can get from the different range of prices. AT&T and other U.S. telecom providers started to offer the Android phone way back in 2012.

Guess what, the upgraded version of Samsung Galaxy Note 2 hits the market few years ago. And now, it is reaching the other regions with 4G technology. This might be the answer of Samsung to the increasing demand of LTE-enabled smartphones for any possible users. And despite of competition, Marco Polo Express from Europe is joining to offer the 5.5-inch phone for 329-euro only.

This model offered by Marco Polo Express is free of any contract just like of other brands which are currently available from their variety of smartphones.
