1. HTC One M8
Here at T3 we were massive fans of the HTC One. It picked up a five star review and numerous gongs at the T3 Gadgets Awards 2013. So it’s safe to say that we’ve been pretty excited about what the Taiwanese company has in store for its 2014 model. Dubbed the HTC One M8, the new device looks pretty similar to the previous model, though it’s a little more curved and slightly larger due to the brand-new 5-inch, 1080p display. Under that aluminium unibody shell is Qualcomm’s 801 processor, clocked at 2.3 GHz and 2GB RAM, plus there’s 16GB storage, though this can be expanded through micro SD up to a whopping 128GB.
One of our favourite new features though is the added depth sensor placed above the 4-ultrapixel camera; this lets you adjust the focal point of your snaps even after you’ve taken them.
Blinkfeed and Sense have both seen upgrades, with a flatter look and more customisability, while a host of gestures are included to make navigation and phone unlocking much easier.
