#1. The HTC One M8 for Windows
Windows fans now have the option of an HTC flagship, as this variant of the One M8 packs nearly identical features -- leave its Windows Phone 8.1 operating system. Along with this is the customizable Live Tile home screen that allows you to pin your favorite apps onto a single frame. Cortana is also in the mix, with HTC´s Ultrapixel camera and BoomSound audio to boot. Just like the Android version, this model boasts a 2.3GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM as well as a 2600mAh battery. Its internal memory caps off at 32GB, while its microSD support caps off at 128GB.

HTC´s Asia-based Butterfly´s sequel runs on high-end hardware, headlined by a 2.5GHz quad-core processor with 2GB RAM, and a 2700mAh battery. It comes with a pretty hefty 16GB internal memory, with support for up to 128GB of microSD expansion. Its features are outfitted with a Dot View jacket, allowing you to view alerts and functions while the protective cover is closed. The Butterfly 2 sports two 1080p-recording cameras at 13 megapixels (rear) and 5 megapixels (selfie cam) respectively. HTC´s classic BoomSound audio technology finds itself in the mix as well.

Question #1: Should it be a smartphone or not?
#3. The HTC One E8
A more affordable version of the One M8 due to its plastic casing, but still retaining most of the flagship´s high-end features. The E8 is designed for dual-SIM use, which was not offered by the M8. The quad-core 2.5GHz processor and up-to-128GB memory expansion slot also reserve its place among other top-line smartphones. While the M8 featured an Ultrapixel snapper, the E8 only features a 13-megapixel BSI camera (still capable of 1080p capture), which is probably another factor that contributes to its cheaper price tag.
#4. The HTC One M8
HTC's flagship phone for 2014 bets on a new kind of camera called Duo Camera, which records capture depth information to allow focus change (and other tune ups) even after the picture is shot. Its memory expansion limit is a hefty 128GB and it promises a talk time of 20 hours and on-board memory can be up to 32GB.
#5. The HTC Desire 816
The HTC Desire 816 flaunts its 13-megapixel camera (joined by a 5-megapixel front-facer) and its 5.5-inch main display (among the largest main displays for camera phones).
It is equipped with an impressive 2600 mAh battery (up to 1260 minutes of talk time), a respectable 1.6 Ghz quad-core processor, a 1.5GB RAM and 8GB of storage space (additional storage is up to 128GB). It is also 4G-capable and it comes with HTC´s BoomSound system (dual front speakers and a built-in amplifiers) allowing users to view a lot more content with supposedly good quality audio.
#6. The HTC Desire 700
The HTC Desire 700 probably longs for a good spot in the mid-range category, with its quad-core 1.2GHz processor, Android OS with HTC Sense, 5-inch 960 x 540 display, and 8-megapixel camera. It is even packed with some of HTC´s flagship features such as the BlinkFeed personalized homescreen, the BoomSound technology with dual front speakers and built-in amplifiers, and the Zoe photo function that can (among other things) transform up to 20 photos into a 3-second video. The dual-SIM smartphone also comes with a 1GB RAM, a 4.6GB user-available memory, and a 2100mAh battery - but LTE support does not seem to be available.
#7. The HTC Desire 510
Used to focusing on multimedia smartphones, HTC slides down a few notches here, apparently trying to bring their BlinkFeed- and LTE-enabled models to a lower price point. The Desire 510 also comes with perks such as the Dot View dual-purpose case, protecting your device and showing the time and notifications while it is closed. Its native memory stands at 8GB, with support for up to 128GB extra storage via microSD. Performance-wise, it banks on a quad-core processor clocked in at 1.2GHz and a 1GB RAM. Its cameras are not that impressive, though, at only 5 and 0.3 megapixels (yes, VGA!) respectively.
#8. The HTC One Mini 2
The One Mini 2 is obviously a simplified version of the latest 2014 range of HTC phones. It offers the usual HTC feature set, with a 128GB memory expansion capacity that the first Mini lacked. While not sporting any Ultrapixel lenses, it does have a better selfie-cam (5MP) than the first Mini and a surprisingly-high (for mid-range smartphones) 13-megapixel camera. And both of its cameras are capable of 1080p video recording. It cuts down on processing speed (from 1.4GHz to 1.2GHz), - perhaps hinting to a cheaper price tag in order to cater to tight-budget HTC fans as well.
#9. The HTC Desire 820
Adding to HTC´s line of high-end Android-Sense models is the sequel to their mid-range Desire 816. The 820 reportedly supports 64-bit processing, which is likely to run heavy apps more smoothly. Its processor operates on eight cores (1.5GHz quad-core and 1GHz quad-core), as opposed to the 816´s quad-core engine. This 5.5-inch HD model also takes a break from the HTC single-color designs, coming in several two-toned finishes and dragging the camera towards one corner. Speaking of cameras, the 820 sports a 13- and an 8-megapixel one, finishing off its high-end profile.
#10. The HTC Desire 300
The HTC Desire 300 probably aims to feed a hankering for a low-cost basic smartphone with respectable specs. Its Android Jelly Bean operating system partners with the HTC Sense UI, which features the HTC BlinkFeed homescreen and the HTC Music Channel visualizer. It also has a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, a 4.3-inch 800 x 480 TFT display with 217ppi, a 5-megapixel camera, a 1.8GB user-available onboard memory, a 512MB RAM, and a 1650mAh battery, but it does not seem to have LTE capability.
