The HTC One (M8) for Windows is now available for those in the US on Verizon Wireless. In the coming months, other carriers, including AT&T, are set to launch the same flagship Windows Phone. The release of the HTC One (M8) for Windows is good news because with the cancellation of 'McLaren,' there are no flagship Lumias on the immediate horizon.
When it comes to hardware, the HTC One (M8) for Windows features some innovative specs, including a newer Snapdragon 801 chipset clocked at 2.3 GHz along with the Adreno 330 GPU. The Lumia 1520 packs a still noteworthy – but older – Snapdragon 800 with a 2.2 GHz clock speed and Adreno 330 GPU.
Does it make it a difference? Indeed it does. The HTC One (M8) has become the second fastest smartphone in the world, and the fastest Windows Phone to date.
