HTC One M8

The second-generation HTC One hit stores in March, and is praised for its model design and software improvements, along with upgrades to internal specs. Under its aesthetically pleasing metal frame and 5-inch Super LCD display (1.920 x 1.080p, 441 ppi) lies a 2.26GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The $650 phone comes with either 16 GB or 32 GB of storage with a microSD card slot. Its 4-megapixel rear-facing and a 5-megapixel secondary cameras feature an "Ultra-Pixel" shooter to deliver colorful photos in poor lighting. The front-facing camera has a depth sensor to individually focus elements in both the foreground and background of shots.
