If HTC's various members of the One family seem a little cold and lifeless to you, you'll appreciate the new Desire 820. This decidedly mid-range device uses a variety of color schemes on its polycarbonate shell, adding a bit of style to the company's standard unibody dual-speaker layout. The result is a look that blends the HTC One M8 and, oddly, the iPhone 5c. Check out those two-tone accents on some models. Read More
Update: It looks like users with qualifying phones who have already redeemed their free storage are automatically getting bumped up to 100GB. Thanks to reader Aaron Blecher for letting us know!
If you've been thinking about getting a newer HTC phone, the company just gave you a little more to think about.

Earlier last month, we posted an exclusive story about Google's explorations into a product called "Workshop," which would allow users to customize snap-on cases and live wallpapers for their Nexus phones. The effort would be a major step-up in what has historically been an inconsistent lineup of accessories for Google's devices.
From information made available to us, it appears Google plans to continue upping the offerings when HTC's nine-inch Nexus tablet becomes official. Read More
The HTC One M8 is an Android device that looks and feels premium. However, its price tag suggests the same. If you want the power and features of the Taiwanese manufacturer's flagship smartphone but don't particular need all of that aluminum, Sprint is now offering such a device in the form of the HTC One E8.

The HTC One Mini might not have had the high-end specs of its big brother, but it was still a stylish little phone. The AT&T variant has been a little behind on the updates, as carrier phones often are, but today that changes—the Sense 6 OTA for the One Mini on AT&T is rolling out.
A number of HTC One M8 owners running on AT&T's network have started to receive an over-the-air software update delivering Android 4.4.3 to their devices. It doesn't bring about a big visual change for a flagship phone that already launched with KitKat, but the number of optimizations and security fixes contained within this release make it something worth downloading. Well, there's that, and there's the warm fuzzy feeling that comes from running a newer version of Android. Read More
HTC's Desire family is the brand that just won't stop, having survived not one but two company-wide product refreshes. And strangely, it looks like it will also host the first HTC device to come with a 64-bit processor. The Desire 510 is a low-end phone aimed at bargain hunters and pay-as-you-go wireless users, but its inclusion of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 410 system on a chip makes its otherwise lackluster specifications notable.
The 1.2Ghz quad-core 410 isn't exactly a powerhouse, but its ability to support both 32-bit and 64-bit processing should make it a popular choice for mid-range and low-end phones as Android begins to support the latter with the upcoming L release. Read More

Likewise, it's what that techy person up the street uses to help out all of their confused family members. Read More
