Conclusion
The Sony Cyber-shot HX400V is a vast improvement on last year's HX300, with better picture quality, a higher-end build, a great video mode and the return of the eye sensor ditched inexplicably from last year's model. The user interface inherited from Sony's RX cameras suits this bridge perfectly and makes it even more pleasant to use. This is the 50x zoom bridge that Sony should have made the first time around. However, with responsive times down on the HX300 and a dodgy EVF, it misses out on a five-star score.
The HTC One (M8) delivers on practically every front. Inside its stylish, beautifully designed body is one of the best Full HD displays on the market. We love its impeccable performance, its remarkable sound quality, its great battery life and its fun camera function. Our only real beef is the lack of sharpness from the camera. All in all, HTC has hit its mark for 2014.
