From a slick distance-sensing camera, Android KitKat, to a fresh interface, here's a look at what features you'll find inside the HTC One M8 smartphone.
The DotView case costs an extra $49.99 but handily displays handy info such as time and current weather.
The DotView case lets you answer or ignore calls without flipping open its cover.
Use the DotView case to see volume levels without using the One M8's screen.
The HTC One M8 features a new lock screen with fresh shortcuts. Swipe up to unlock, right for BlinkFeed, and left for your main homescreen.
HTC's Sense 6 custom interface now features themes built around colors to freshen up your Android experience.
The HTC TV app uses the One M8's IR blaster to control HDTVs.
The TV app will remind you when your favorite shows are on plus switch to the right channel for you.
Paired with the HTC One M8's depth-sensing second lens, the camera app lets you refocus plus edit the foreground and background of photos.
The Ufocus function lets you select what stays in focus and what does not for a classy Lytro-like effect.
The HTC One M8's Ufocus ability helps you add extra depth and more drama even to otherwise blah office shots.
The Seasons effect lets you add virtual objects such as snowflakes, cherry blossom petals (shown here), or other items to photos.
Equipped with a 5MP front camera, the HTC One M8 takes some pretty crisp selfies.
You have the option to add a simulated pencil-sketch background to pictures for artistic effect.
An HTC smartphone wouldn't be right without a full-featured weather app, and the One M8 keeps the tradition alive.
