HTC One M8

As their followup to the incredibly popular One, HTC has announced the One M8, an indisputably-gorgeous Android-powered all-metal unibody phone. At its core, the One M8 features Android 4.4 KitKat, a 2.3GHz quad core processor, 2GB of RAM, up to 32GB of storage expandable through a microSD slot, and all the connectivity options you'd expect. What's really important are the updates to the camera, battery, and gesture control. An updated camera gets pixels that are double the size you would find on most phones, letting you shoot in low-light conditions, while making it possible to use a number of new special effects. It's improved battery will last up to 40-percent longer, while a new standby mode will keep your phone running for 14 days. And gesture-control shortcuts let you turn on your screen, answer calls, and lock the phone without swipes or taps.
