Choosing the most influential Android devices of the last decade

Choosing the most influential Android devices of the last decade

We've clearly got a little bias on the subject, but Android has a long and storied history filled with its own triumphs and pitfalls. It's been well over a decade now since that first HTC G1 landed, the inaugural Android smartphone, and things have changed drastically since then. Being "first" might make you think the G1 was the most influential Android phone — but was it, really?

[Update: OTA Link] HTC One M8 Google Play Edition Is Being Updated To Android 5.1 Now, M7 GPE Coming Soon

The Google Play Edition program seems to have been mostly forgotten by Google and its hardware partners, but at least those devices that were released are still getting steady updates. The latest one to be blessed with Android 5.1 is HTC's One M8 Google Play Edition from last year. Users are reporting that the over-the-air update is heading out now, so check your Settings menu if you happen to own one.

The HTC Eye Experience Will Bring Auto-Selfie, Split Capture, Crop-Me-In, And More Features To The M7, M8, And Other Devices

The HTC Eye Experience Will Bring Auto-Selfie, Split Capture, Crop-Me-In, And More Features To The M7, M8, And Other Devices

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. There's also the ability to use voice prompts, such as "Say Cheese" to take a photo or "Action" to record a video without having to reach for a button.

The Android L release is so new it doesn't even have a name yet, but HTC wants to make sure you know it will be ready when it comes out. Or at least, shortly thereafter. Before the Google I/O 2014 keynote had even finished, HTC released the following statement on its software update page:

HTC Customers and Enthusiasts,

HTC is excited about the new features in Android L release and we can’t wait to share them with you. We are committed to updating our flagship HTC One family as fast as possible as part of our HTC Advantage program. We will begin rolling out updates to the HTC One (M8) and HTC One (M7) worldwide within 90 days of receiving final software from Google, followed shortly thereafter by other One family members and select devices.
