After tallying the votes for week 114 of PhoneDog’s Official Smartphone Rankings (OSR), the HTC One (M8) found itself atop of the People’s Choice and Experts’ Choice Rankings for a 7th consecutive week.  The One (M8) continues to run away with the trophy each week, reminding us of the debut that its predecessor made over a year ago.  Will the HTC One (M8) maintain its strong hold on first place or can features like the Sony Xperia Z2’s 20.7-megapixel camera and 5.2-inch 1080p display help it to take over the top spot on the OSR?
