From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
Watch Live as HTC Launches the HTC One 2014 [Update: Now Officially Here!]
Update: The all new HTC One (2014) is now officially here, and its hardware specifications come as no surprise. The device features a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 SoC, a 5-inch 1080p Super LCD3 panel, 2 GB of RAM, a 2600 mAh battery, and either 16 or 32 GB of internal storage.
The new One also features HTC’s new Duo Camera technology to use two camera sensors to provide post-shot focusing effects, as well as a new dual-color flash to help make flash photos look more natural. And on the software side, the new One will be available in both standard HTC Sense 6-laden and Google Play edition variants.
All of the goodies above are packed into a device measuring in at just 9.3 mm thick and weighing 160 grams. Does the new HTC One (2014) give the Taiwanese OEM a fighting chance at taking on Samsung and other OEMs this time around. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

Official launch video:
The HTC One (2014) has been leaked so many times that it almost seems silly for the OEM to hold a launch event. We already know what Sense 6 looks like, a few of their apps have made it to the Play Store, and now an eager carrier jumped the gun by revealing all of the device’s relevant specs. Despite the massive amount of leaks, it’s hard to not be excited about a device that features high end specs, a fantastic screen, and HTC’s trademark build quality.
The HTC One (2014) features a slightly larger 5″ 1080p Super LCD3 panel, and it runs Android 4.4.2 skinned with Sense 6. And thanks to previous leaks, we know that it will feature a Snapdragon 801 processor. The device will be available with 32 GB of internal storage, but it will also feature a microSD expansion slot for added memory.
The “All New One” builds upon the stunning build quality that made the original device such a success by continuing the zero-gap all-metal unibody construction. Accordingly, it does not feature a user-replaceable battery. It does, however, feature HTC-exclusive technologies like HTC Zoe, BoomSound, and the new Duo Camera, which lets you apply focus effects after the shot has been taken.
The HTC One (2014) is set to launch in 30 minutes, so head over to HTC’s launch site to watch the unveiling live. Is the HTC One (2014) all that you hoped for? Let us know in the comments below, and then head over to XDA Senior Member radiotrib‘s One 2014 launch thread to continue the discussion.
