    Hey, look at this! Now that's what I call a funky-looking flip case. Retro dot matrix. Love it. Tap to turn on too.

    Getting a whole bunch of camera options on the M8; manual setting galore plus you can save them as custom presets for fast access.

  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2014 3:33:08 PM
    Becker: Now 2013 was the year of the selfie. HTC is known for giving you the best front camera. Not just photos. Mobile video chat is exploding, expected to triple over next few years

  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2014 3:34:46 PM
    Becker: Opens up creative options that just haven't been possible before. Knows which objects are closer. What can do with info? In pro photos, subject crisply in focus but background slightly blurred out. HTC can instantly create this effect right on your phone. Can refocus the shot on anyone in the frame with just a tap. Don't have to mess with separate app or mode.
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2014 3:35:01 PM
    Becker: You just tap, and it turns a good photo into a great photo.

    The M8 will be able to do slick depth of field effects...on all photos you snap.
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2014 3:35:26 PM
    Becker: For the first time, your phone can understand objects in a physical space. Can completely and instantly separate the foreground and background of photo for cool effects.
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2014 3:35:37 PM
    Becker: Pencil sketch, motion blur, or cell shading.

    Becker: This is yet another breakthrough in mobile photography.
  • Brian Bennett 3/25/2014 3:36:28 PM
    Is depth of field the new 3D for smartphones? Maybe so...but it does look cool I can't deny.
  • Josh Miller 3/25/2014 3:36:54 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2014 3:37:02 PM
