HTC One (M8) Google Play edition initial hands-on

Just as we saw with the HTC One (M7) last year, there are a variety of models of the HTC One (M8) available. You will be able to find the branded carrier models as well as the Unlocked and Developer Edition models direct from HTC. And as you'll see discussed here in this post, the HTC One (M8) Google Play edition (GPe). This one brings Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat without Sense 6, but it is not quite as pure as some of the earlier GPe handsets.

We now have a Verizon HTC One (M8) in for review.

Timehop app hands-on: providing a daily trip back in time

Timehop, as a service, has been around for many years now. But given the app just recently arrived in the Play Store, it may be one that flew under the radar of many Android users. The premise here is simple, Timehop takes you back in time. The app is one that you'll only need to launch once per day, and it will show you what you were doing one, two, three and four years earlier.

HTC One (M8) Dot View case hands-on

Along with the phone itself, HTC also unveiled some accessories for the One (M8). We've seen a variety including a Car Kit, Battery Bar and BoomBass.

Perhaps the most interesting of the bunch is this last though, the HTC Dot View case.

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.
