While the device quickly earned the acclaim of Android phone users everywhere, it ran into software problems such as random crashes and SIM card errors. Applications like Yahoo! Mail were rather hard to operate on the HTC One M8, unlike in other mobile devices.
That said, differentiating a software problem from an issue with the phone’s hardware isn’t exactly as clear-cut. As Lynch demonstrates in his article, an HTC One M8 with a bad signal can be fixed simply by clearing its cache or, as a last resort, restoring factory settings. However, neither solution won’t work if the problem actually stems from an issue with the phone’s modem—something that certainly needs the attention of a recognized provider of HTC repair in Melbourne and elsewhere.
