Lusting after the exterior of a handset might not be the expected reaction when conducting a review of a smartphone camera. Yet that's exactly what happens when first glancing across the smooth surface of the HTC One M8.
There is absolutely no questioning the stunning appearance of the M8's form factor. But then the inconvenience reality sets in. While your eyes glide around the handset, your hands are busy making their slip and slide moves across its sleek curves.
Admittedly, I am a total klutz, so this isn't an unexpected occurrence when I test out smartphone cameras. Placing the phone in the hands of more spatially-able candidates also elicited a similar reaction, which was reassuring for me but didn't do many favours for the handset.
