HTC One M8
Last year's HTC One was one of the iPhone's strongest competitors thanks to its beautiful metal design, its high-res display, its Sense user interface, and its camera features. That version of the HTC One was one of the best smartphones of all time and this year's HTC One M8 picks up where it left off.
The new HTC One M8 comes with an even more impressive design, a larger 5-inch 1080p display, improved camera features, better software, speedy processor and more. It's also available on four of the five major U.S. carriers.
Best of all, if you go through Amazon, you're not going to be paying an arm and a leg. Amazon and other retailers have slashed the HTC One M8 price down from its usual $199.99 slot making it a device worth considering during the month of August, ahead of the iPhone 6 release.
Who knows, you may just end up forgetting about the iPhone 6 after picking one up.
