The updated HTC One M9 packs speed and software improvements into a handset that remains lustworthy in middle age, but it doesn't exceed the competition where it counts.
HTC's new One M9+ packs an ultra high definition 5.2-inch display and a fingerprint scanner on the front. It also sees the return of the depth-sensing duo camera.
This new, European-bound handset has a 5-inch screen, 13-megapixel camera and octa-core processor inside.

Verizon subscribers can't beat the polished-metal HTC One Remix for value and style.
The One E8 offers the high-end HTC experience in glossy colors and a plastic case, but without a unique selling point, there's little reason to buy this expensive device.
With its slick metal body, the HTC One Mini 2 is among the most luxurious compact phones around.

If style is of the utmost importance, it's worth checking out, but the Moto G is much better value.
A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone.
