Five things HTC’s Sense 6.0 does better than Android

Stock Android is great. I’m a big fan, and am typically pretty critical of OEM overlays, eschewing them for Nexus at just about every turn. With the HTC One (M8), you’ll get Sense 6.0, which is HTC’s latest take on Android. One of the first Android skins, Sense has come a long way from the clunky blanket it once was. Mature and sensible, there are some things we think Sense does just a bit better than Android proper.

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.

HTC’s UFocus for the One (M8), hands-on

With the HTC One (M8), camera hardware doesn’t always lead to better shots in the moment. With the second camera gathering info about the shot as you take it, some added post-production work is available. With UFocus, we can go back to our pics and change the focal point, erasing mistakes we may have made the first time around. Is UFocus a feature, or a failure? We go hands-on to find out.

Verizon HTC One (M8) initial hands-on

We now have a Verizon HTC One (M8) in for review. The handset arrived earlier this morning, and while we obviously aren't going to post a full review after having the phone for only a few hours -- we did want to share some images and some first impression thoughts. Of course, we can also touch on some of the Verizon specifics that you'll find (should you decide to purchase this model). That said, read on for our first impressions of the Verizon HTC One (M8).

HTC One M8 gets a Google Play Edition conversion process

Many might have been enamored by HTC latest flagship but don't really give a care for the custom software running on the HTC One M8. Trying to combine the best of all words, some more enterprising developers over at XDA have come up with ways to get a Google Play Edition on the smartphone experience without having to pay more for an unlocked GPE device.

HTC One (M7) drops to $1 with Best Buy

The shiny new gadget may be the HTC One (M8), but that isn't to say the previous model shouldn't be considered. The 2013 model year HTC One is still a rather capable handset, and thanks to a limited time offer with Best Buy -- it is currently selling with an attractive price point.

HTC One (M8) vs. One (2013): Worth an upgrade?

With the HTC One (M8), we got an updated version of a device that captured our minds in 2013. Though it failed to recreate the magic of the first One, the newest flagship from HTC brings in some unique changes, making us consider just whether or not it’s worth an upgrade. Though the newest is exclusive to Verizon right now, both Ones are still on offer. We’re likely to see both available with carriers for some time, so what should you do when faced with the choice? We go hands-on with both.

HTC One M8 to take Asia by storm in May

HTC may have already started the slow roll out of the HTC One M8 in the US but those in Asia near the company's home will have to wait a bit longer. With the singular exception of Singapore, the rest of Asia will just have to twiddle their thumbs in anticipation for an early May launch.

HTC One M8 Sense 6 apps extracted and distributed

If you've been enamored by some of the apps on the brand new HTC One M8 but don't want to switch phones just for that, then there is a sliver of hope for you. Over at XDA, the process of extracting the said apps and libraries has been started, in the hopes of someday making them available to other devices as well.
