    The down side to success is the pressure to keep on succeeding. HTC's 2013 flagship, the original HTC One (M7), defined "successful" in nearly every way. We awarded it one of the highest review scores we'd ever bestowed on a smartphone, a reception mirrored by most of the tech community. "Bravo HTC," we said of its stellar industrial design and innovative new features. Our opinion stayed much the same when the Sprint version came to town ("It's a phone that does it all – and does it very well"). Pocketnow readers selected the HTC One as their top smartphone of 2013. And the accolades ...

    Sometimes it's not the promise of saving money, nor the allure of a shiny device that drives you from the warm arms of your current wireless carrier - sometimes it's just a matter of standing up for what you believe in.

In the former example it's a wisecrack from a Klingon bent on shooting our favorite captain's ship out from under him. In both cases, it's a kind of farewell. And in today's example, it's also a goodbye - to the old times. That's a pretty dramatic way of saying that we're finally, officially past the post-CES ...

    When it comes to the HTC M8, we've got plenty of questions. When will HTC launch the phone? What can we ultimately expect from the hardware? And maybe one of the simplest – and one that's eluded us thus far: what will the phone end up being called? This time last year, we were still calling the HTC One by its own codename, M7, and it wasn't until early February – less than two weeks before HTC's launch event, when the HTC One name hit our radar. As we wait to learn just how the M8 will arrive, a new twist is being thrown on top of this puzzle, with the name M8x showing up in an ...
