For the past couple of years, HTC has struggled in getting enough market for its devices.
In spite developing some of the best smartphones in the industry, it has only maintained a secondary role to Samsung as the premier maker of phones.
However, that changed when the Taiwan-based manufacturer launched the HTC One M8 in March.
While it still had its 4MP UltraPixels which underwhelmed many, overall it is a solid device. But the One M8 is just the beginning of HTC’s slow climb back to success for 2014.
Here are four of the company’s top phones for this year: 1.
HTC One M8 As mentioned earlier, the One M8 prepared the market for a big year from HTC.
The device boasts a 5-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, 2GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 801 chipset, and the intriguing, yet underperforming 4MP UltraPixel shooter at the back.
For weeks, it has been a battle among the One M8, the Galaxy S5 and the Xperia Z2 as the best Android phone around. 2.
HTC One E8 The plastic flagship was initially launched in China, but made its way to some markets later on.
The One E8 boasts the same specs as the One M8, with the only major differences including the plastic build, and the 13MP primary camera at the back which replaces the 4MP UltraPixel shooter.
The One E8 was also a lot cheaper when it was first launched.
HTC Desire 820 The Desire 820 is a flagship that struggles with its own personality just because it has the Desire branding, which is HTC’s lineup for midrangers.
But when we look at its specs, the FHD screen, 2GB RAM, and the Snapdragon 801 chipset all tell us that this is a late-comer flagship that aims at a cheaper price tag. 4.
HTC Desire EYE Launched several weeks ago, the Desire EYE is probably one of the most interesting smartphones ever released this year.
It boasts two 13MP cameras in front and at the back of the smartphone.
And both devices also get a dual-LED flash for better camera shots.
The cheaper price tag compared to flagship phones is the real selling point for this Desire EYE.
