HTC has revealed its latest Android smartphone, the HTC Desire 600, a midrange dual-SIM handset with a quadcore processor set to go on sale in June.

Mophie Juice Pack for HTC One Review

Mophie Juice Pack for HTC One Review

The nightly recharge is a fact of life with most modern smartphones, and the HTC One is no different, but what if you could double your runtime and protect your expensive new toy in the process? That's what Mophie promises from the Juice Pack for the HTC One, a combination external battery and hard case that, when wrapped around your phone, should let even the most ambitious power-user escape the tyranny of the charger. All that flexibility comes at a price, however: $99.95 and a considerably larger device in your pocket. Is the Mophie Juice Pack worth the compromise? Read on for our full review.

Facebook Home hits HTC One and Galaxy S 4 in quiet social update

Facebook Home has quietly added support for the HTC One and - unofficially - the Samsung Galaxy S 4, as the social network Android homescreen replacement attempts to build on its 1m+ existing users. The app originally launched for the Galaxy S III, Note II, HTC One X, and One X+, with the promise of One and Galaxy S 4 support when both handsets were released. Now that appears to have been added, albeit with a slightly confusing error message on the Samsung phone.

HTC First Review

HTC First Review

The HTC First is not the Facebook Phone, but it's a Facebook Phone, and if you feel like we've been here before then you're not alone. Baking the core essence of Facebook Home - "putting people first" with a content-rich homescreen and tightly integrated messaging - into a dedicated handset, the First is the start of what we're told will be a series of Home "experience" devices. Problem is, HTC tried putting Facebook front and center once before, with the HTC Salsa and ChaCha, and neither found much favor among the socially-obsessed. Has the $99.99 First got what it takes to be our very best friend? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

AT&T HTC One Review

AT&T HTC One Review

Is the HTC One the best Android smartphone around, and has the wait for the AT&T LTE version been worth it? We've already spent more than 6,000 words on the HTC One, back in our review of the European version, but this was our chance to put the first US-specific variant to the test. To do that we took it out into the wild to put the key selling points - specifically the UltraPixel camera and the 4G speed - on trial at the New York Auto Show, among other places, as well as to see if the non-removable battery is a deal-breaker in the face of the fast-incoming Samsung Galaxy S 4. Read on to find out how the HTC One fared.

Facebook Home and HTC First Hands-on

Facebook Home and HTC First Hands-on

It's the Facebook phone… but it's every phone. Facebook Home is here, and it wants to take control of your Android experience, a new software suite rather than a specific handset. Unveiled at Facebook HQ this morning, Home arrives on Android via the Play store from April 12 and splashes your photos and friends across the lockscreen and the homescreen. We've been playing with Facebook Home today on the HTC First, the first device to fit into Facebook's Home Program; read on for our first-impressions.

HTC declares war on Samsung: GALAXY S 4 is “more of the same”

HTC declares war on Samsung: GALAXY S 4 is “more of the same”

This week the Samsung release of the GALAXY S 4 saw HTC summoning up their best set of retaliation words to go into direct battle with the hero phone, saying the HTC One should, by all means, eat its competition's lunch. A comment has come through today from no less than HTC's chief marketing officer Benjamin Ho regarding the GALAXY S 4, the HTC One, and consumer's decision between the two. It should be clear at this point that HTC isn't afraid to claim their 2013 hero is ready to beat down even the loftiest of releases - Broadway dances and singing and all.

HTC One Review [2013]

HTC One Review [2013]

It's been a tough few years for HTC, unsung victim of the Apple-Samsung smartphone war, and the new HTC One has a lot to do to fix that. The company has seen its place in Android dwindle from trailblazer to also-ran, as Samsung's cutting-edge hardware and vast marketing budget forced Galaxy to the fore. Solid phones like 2012's One X and One S failed to relight HTC's fire, and so it has done the only thing it can: raise its game much, much higher with the HTC One. We're back to the days of risk-taking hardware decisions and legitimately interesting software, but the big question is whether the One can pull it off. Read on for the full SlashGear review.
