The Android Community Team: our must have apps

We’ve all got them, those apps you just can’t do without. Buy a new phone, and there are some you just have to make sure you have on your device. Day to day, there are those apps you rely on much more than others. Like you, we’ve got ours.

HTC One (M8): hands-on and first-impressions

The HTC One (M8) has been officially unveiled. This means the rumors and leaks will be coming to an end. But perhaps more important here -- it means we are finally going to be able to put the handset to the test. We are curious to see how it stands up in comparison to the previous year HTC One. And we are also curious to see how well it stands up against the other recently announced flagship -- the Samsung Galaxy S5.
