Five things the HTC One (M8) just gets wrong

Though we like the new HTC One (M8), there are a few things giving us headaches. The device is still top-end and wildly popular, and like anything else, has some features and settings that frustrate. Things you may not notice in-store while you’re fondling your potential new handset aren’t always immediately evident, so keep these things in mind when you’re ready to hand your credit card to the cashier.

Smartphones: latest and greatest vs. the old reliable

As you'll notice from our coverage here on the site, we get to play with a fair amount of new devices. In fact, there are several tablets and smartphones sitting on my desk at the moment, including the HTC One (M8) and Samsung Galaxy S5. As those are the two new flagships we suspect many readers would love the opportunity to say the same. The thing is, we aren't saying this to brag, but instead to illustrate a point about how the hot new device may not be the best (for you).

HTC One M8 tipped to have plastic variant soon

If the new HTC One had you wishing you had more money to burn, then your prayers might have just been indirectly answered. That is, if you're willing to carry around a plastic slab. HTC is now rumored to produce an HTC One M8 variant that is significantly cheaper but also trades its aluminum body for a plastic one.

T-Mobile HTC One (M8) now available

As we had been expecting, T-Mobile has launched the HTC One (M8) this morning. T-Mobile has the One (M8) priced at $636. Those looking to make a purchase will be able to make monthly payments though. In this case that means $0 down with 24 payments of $26.50.
