People looking to snag an unlocked version of a high-end flagship device generally have to spend up upwards of half a grand. Today we've come across a refurbished version of the HTC One M8 on eBay that's going for just $389.99.

When HTC announced its newest Desire EYE smartphone with the camera-focused Eye Experience, it promised that those features will soon find their way to older devices like the M7 and M8. And sure enough, the One M8 in Europe started getting the update the very next day. It's now the unlocked Developer Edition's turn, as an OTA to version 3.28.1540.5 is starting to hit some users.

The update bumps the Android version to KitKat 4.4.4 and brings the entire suite of HTC's new photography tools to the phone, including Auto Selfie, Face Tracking, Split Capture, Live Makeup, and Face Fusion.

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. The goods are bundled up with Android 4.4.4, and they're bumping users up from version 2.22.401.5 to 3.28.401.6.

A full download is available over at the XDA Developers forum for anyone who wants to rush in and get their hands dirty.

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.

The first thing HTC announced at its Double Exposure event today wasn't new hardware. No, the company was very eager to share its new software, which it has coined the EYE Experience. This term encapsulates a full range of features all aimed at making your HTC phone a better tool for taking photos.

Let's run through the features. One addition is an Auto-Selfie (ignore the name and bear with me here) function that will automatically take a photo with the front-facing camera after users have framed the shot and held the phone still for two seconds.

Update #2: T-Mobile has started updating support pages with a clarification on those Wi-Fi calling enhancements. The phones now have support for Gogo inflight texting, a feature the company announced as part of Un-Carrier 7.0.

Update #1: The Galaxy S5 got some love, too.

Google isn't the only company lumping big updates on Wednesday. T-Mobile is sending out Android updates to four, count 'em, four phones on its network.

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. HTC and Google have just doubled the amount of free Google Drive storage that new owners of the HTC One M8 and One Max receive when registering a phone, up to 100GB from the former 50.

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.

Owners of HTC's latest flagship on Verizon have been patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) waiting on the promised update to Android 4.4.3 for some time now, but it looks like they'll be waiting a little longer. Even though the T-Mobile One M8 got its update today, HTC's US president Jason Mackenzie has confirmed on Twitter the OTA is currently targeted for mid-September on Verizon.
