Leaked pic shows 2014’s best Android phone in blue

Let’s say that you want to buy an HTC One (M8) but you aren’t too keen on the device’s standard silver or grey — well, it looks like you’re going to get another option. @evleaks has just posted a press render of a blue version of HTC’s latest flagship smartphone and as you can see, the device looks pretty sweet with an aqua blue tint.We have no idea when the blue version of the HTC One (M8) will release but @evleaks doesn’t typically acquire press renders unless a device’s launch is imminent, which suggests HTC will release it sooner rather than later.

HTC One M8 Harman Kardon Edition Review

Does the HTC One (M8) Harman Kardon edition really sound that much better than the original?

Does the HTC One (M8) Harman Kardon edition really sound that much better than the original?

The HTC One (M8) is a great phone. In fact, we recently called it the best Android phone in the world. While the design is the most obvious plus for the M8, HTC’s new and improved front-facing BoomSound speakers mark another area where HTC’s flagship phone shames rival handsets. As good as BoomSound is on the M8, however, Sprint’s special Harman Kardon edition promises sound that is somehow even better. Does it deliver? Sprint sent us one a couple of weeks ago so we could find out for ourselves. More →

How to bring one of the HTC One (M8)’s best features to your phone

Among the many impressive new features that HTC added with the HTC One (M8) was new “Motion Launch” functionality that gives you much more control over your device using simple gestures, such as the ability to both wake it up and put it back to sleep by double-tapping the display. Unfortunately, the only way to get this incredibly cool feature so far has been to buy an HTC One (M8)… until now, that is. More →

You can now turn any HTC One (M8) into the Harman Kardon edition

HTC’s new flagship HTC One (M8) is the best Android phone in the world for a number of reasons. The design is gorgeous, the build is impeccable and the software is refined and modern. The killer sound is an added benefit thanks to HTC’s front-facing “BoomSound” setup, but Sprint subscribers have access to an even better version of the M8 that includes Harman Kardon audio tuning. Thanks to some handwork over on the XDA Developers forum, however, any HTC One (M8) owner can now enjoy the added benefits of the Harman Kardon limited edition version. More →

HTC has a secret weapon for taking on Samsung, and it’s not what you think

No matter how positive the reviews are for its products, HTC can’t seem to break out from behind the shadow of Samsung. Without a veritable army of devices flooding store shelves, it’s difficult for any phone maker to make an impact in the Android smartphone market. But HTC believes that by closing the gap on dedicated cameras, it can attract an even wider audience while trumping the competition. More →

Galaxy S5 vs. HTC One (M8): Which is the best Android phone in the world?

For smartphone fans around the world, things really started to get interesting over the past couple of months. First, Samsung unveiled its new Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone in late February, revealing a smartphone that was quite impressive and touted a number of great new features, but failed to live up to the hype stirred up by dozens of rumors. Then, HTC unveiled its own flagship phone, the HTC One (M8), and launched it the very same day.

We called HTC’s new handset the best Android phone on the planet when we published our in-depth HTC One (M8) review. But now HTC’s flagship handset finally has some serious competition in the Galaxy S5.

The new M8 and Samsung’s Galaxy S5 went on sale within weeks of each other and there is little question that these two smartphones are the best all-around Android phones in the world at the moment. But when it comes to wearing the crown, there can be only one.

So, which next-generation flagship smartphone is the best in the business right now? More →
