Didn’t find our unboxing and tour of the HTC One (M8) or Dot View flip cover overview useful? Don’t worry, HTC has you covered with 10 individual videos that highlight everything from the phone’s camera to its accessories.
Each video is short and to the point, so if you want to see how Zoes work or how you can apply effects that utilize the depth sensor in the Duo Camera, these are right up your alley. The videos also include tutorials on using gestures with the screen off, what info is shown through a Dot View cover, and the point of BlinkFeed.
For users new to HTC’s Sense skin or who missed out on last year’s One but are picking up this year’s, these are probably worth a quick watch. (more…)
What do you do if you are HTC, are barely hanging on for dear life in the mobile race, have zero marketing budget, and just released your latest phone that needs to be a winner in order for you to survive?

I wouldn’t say that the spot is worse than those embarrassing Robert Downey, Jr. “Hipster Troll Carwash” commercials, but it’s not giving us much. I know that HTC needs to do something different while spending wisely, but talking about your product might help, you know, sell it. Maybe a feature mention or two? At least take it out off the dark and actually show it off? (more…)
And here she (apologies for the delay, it has been that kind of day). The HTC One (M8) is in house (and also in NYC with Tim), unboxed, and on film with thoughts to share. After seeing the phone leak more than any phone in history, you are probably surprised that we actually have any new thoughts, but trust me, we do. (more…)

One of the new things released alongside the One (M8) from HTC today, is the Dot View case. When the case is placed on the device, it brings up a dotted look on the lockscreen. From here, you can perform certain tasks, such as voice dial contacts, and check on notifications. (more…)
We got our hands on the One (M8) from HTC, and we gotta say, this is a nice device. This morning in New York City, HTC’s CEO Peter Chou spoke of making the best smartphone in the world even better. Featuring a slight, yet significant bump in specs and hardware, the M8 will lead the charge against Samsung’s Galaxy S5 in 2014. (more…)
The HTC One (M8) is finally official, now available through a few select US carriers through their online stores. Customers hoping to grab the new One can do so online through Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T, but it appears folks hoping for T-Mobile and US Cellular will need to remain patient. (more…)
