#2. 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.

#3. The HTC Windows Phone 8S
This lower-end cousin of the HTC Windows Phone 8X sports lesser specs: A 4-inch Super LCD display, a 5-megapixel camera, a 1000Mhz dual-core CPU, and 512MB of RAM. It seems to be targeted at younger people with a variety of colors available and with features such as Xbox gaming and Beats Audio technology.
#4. 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.
#5. 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.
#6. The HTC EVO Design 4G
The fifth installment to the Evo family, the HTC Evo Design 4G offers notable smartphone features, including 4G data speed, a 5-megapixel camera, a 1200Mhz processor, and a sober design. Running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, it is also the first Evo world (GSM) phone.
#7. The HTC Butterfly
A close relative of the Droid DNA (HTC´s flagship quad-core smartphone), the HTC Butterfly sports roughly similar features. Its specifications are generally high-end, including a 5-inch Super LCD 3 display with a 1080p HD resolution, a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, an 8-megapixel camera with a dedicated image chip, and a 2GB RAM.
#8. The HTC Droid DNA
The HTC Droid DNA is one of the first smartphones to feature a 5-inch screen with a full 1080p HD resolution (a resolution usually associated with HDTVs and monitors). Add this up with a quad-core processor, Beats Audio technology, two (front-facing and main) 1080p HD video recorders, and 4G high-speed data, and you get a high-end mobile entertainment device. Other noteworthy specs are a curved uni-body design and an 8-megapixel camera with HTC ImageChip (can take up to 99 continuous shots).
#9. The HTC Desire X
A music smartphone, the Desire X sports the Beats Audio technology that provides studio-quality music and sounds (according to HTC reports). Its camera is only 5-megapixel, but it includes some advanced features, such as a BSI sensor for low-light shots and a dedicated HTC ImageChip. It runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) powered by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU on a 768MB RAM.
#10. The HTC One Max
The 5.9-inch HTC One Max debuted a fingerprint scanner (like the iPhone 5S did) and an updated version of the HTC Sense (in the 5.5 version, BlinkFeed can be disabled - along with other changes). However, it kept most of the specs and features of its smaller brother (the HTC One): the quad-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, the 2GB RAM, the 4-megapixel camera that HTC calls UltraPixel (but without the Optical Image Stabilization feature of the HTC One), the BoomSound audio technology, and the Zoe photo and video editor. The One Max has a bigger battery, though (3300mAh) and it allows up to 64GB of additional storage.
