The brand new HTC One (M8) is kind of a big deal. Announced on Tuesday following months of leaks and rumors, the M8 is HTC’s new flagship phone that the struggling vendor hopes will be the catalyst it needs to turn things around. It also just so happens to be the best Android phone on the planet right now, though that’s certainly no guarantee that sales will follow. Coverage of HTC’s new flagship phone has been coming hot and heavy on BGR for the past day and a half, so here is a quick rundown that offers links to everything you could possibly want to know about the HTC One (M8).

The One (M8) takes a beating

Some bloggers aren’t content to just review a new smartphone… so they decided to torture the new HTC One (M8) instead.

HTC’s new One is the most powerful smartphone in the world – sort of

The HTC One (M8) model for the Asian region is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz, while the rest of the world will get a 2.3GHz version. As it turns out, those extra two-tenths make all the difference in the world.
