The Sprint HTC One M8 is the 2014 flagship device from Taiwanese manufacturer HTC. The new One features a 5″ Super LCD3 display, with a resolution of 1920×1080. It’s powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and 2GB of RAM. Internal storage is available in either 16GB or 32GB, with the addition of a microSD card slot, capable of up to 128GB. The new One features enhanced “Boomsound” speakers, a 2600mAh battery, and an improved camera. The dual 4MP Ultrapixel camera features two sensors, one camera sensor and one depth of field sensor, which allows the user to make unique adjustments to a photo after it’s been taken.
Sprint HTC One M8 has ItsOn which was designed to provide intelligent and granular control of mobile network communication—and it’s doing that, but not quite as expected. It didn’t take long to notice that this service is a massive battery drain that often even consumes up to 50% of the overall battery time. There is a solution to this. XDA developers have created a mod to remove ItsOn from the Sprint HTC One M8. Follow the guide given below.
