The HTC One (M8) is the new best phone in the world

HTC emerges victorious as the One M8 slips into its well-deserved crown at the top of Stuff's Top 10 smartphones

The HTC One (M8) has earned a well-deserved five stars in Stuff's full in-depth review, and the handset is now sitting pretty at the top of the Top 10 best smartphones list.

Praised for its solid more-metal-than-ever build and blazing-fast innards, the One M8 had some stiff competition in the LG G2 but managed to leave the ring as a worthy winner.
