It's no mystery HTC is preparing to announce its latest flagship the One M9 in just a couple of weeks. Naturally, it's time to clear out some inventory space to make way for new products, and that means cutting prices. HTC Hot Deals is running a weekend-long sale on the RE Camera, the One M8, and a selection of custom cases.
We've seen some better deals (for $300, and $350) on the One M8 in the last month, but they've been limited to the AT&T model, and only available as refurbs. Read More

Sprint's HTC One M8 has received an over-the-air update that gives that 4 "Ultrapixel" camera a boost. No, it doesn't magically cram in more pixels into those photos, but it does greatly expand just what you can do with the shooter on both the front and the back of the device. This comes courtesy of the new HTC Eye Experience.
These software enhancements, which HTC showed off at a selfie-themed event where it unveiled the Desire EYE, introduce a number of innovations that actually catch our interest. Read More
T-Mobile is currently pushing out an over-the-air update to its version of HTC's flagship phone that bumps the software up to Android 4.4.4. Interestingly enough, getting the latest version of KitKat isn't the highlight of this release. This OTA also comes with the suite of features bundled together as the HTC Eye Experience, which the manufacturer detailed in a selfie-themed event where it unveiled the Desire EYE.
The Eye Experience, which we've previously detailed more in-depth, introduces numerous features that range from useful to just plain gimmicky. Read More
Just yesterday, HTC announced that it would bring its new Eye Experience to existing One devices via a future update, and some people in Europe are already seeing the enhancements come to their devices.

A couple of weeks ago, a good number of us were turned on by the idea of an updated HTC One M8 that shipped with a camera packing not 4, but 13 megapixels. Then we had our hopes and dreams shattered with news that the device was expected to be a China and India exclusive.
The phone has now gone on sale in China. It will probably get imported into India, but there's nothing new to share concerning the other side of the globe. Read More
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
Leading up to the launch of the One M8, HTC started posting some of its apps to the Play Store. This arrangement allows it to roll out changes to particular apps without having to issue firmware updates, which is what it has recently done. The HTC Dot View app has gained a number of new features that expand upon the functionality owners of the accessory can tap into.
The update brings in the ability to select your own image to use as the case's wallpaper. Read More
HTC has had a rough time in recent years as Samsung has risen to dominance in the Android device market. The resulting slump culminated in a year of losses for the Taiwanese OEM, but today's Q2 2014 numbers signal a potential turnaround. HTC had a small profit of NT$2.26 billion ($75 million) over the last three months.
The HTC One M8 is a metal phone, so naturally it launched in metallic colors: gunmetal gray, the M7's shade of silver, and some kind of gold. Since then, we've seen leaked shots of the phone in pink and blue. Now our eyes have witnessed it in red. Read More
