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 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.

HTC One hands-on: Sense 5, BlinkFeed and TV

HTC One hands-on: Sense 5, BlinkFeed and TV

If the 4-megapixel camera is HTC's big play with the One's hardware, HTC BlinkFeed is its big software play on the new flagship. A new homescreen for Sense 5, BlinkFeed works as a smorgasbord for "snackable" content - as HTC envisages it, the sort of instant gratification people are looking for when they whip their phone out in an idle moment. That happens more often than you might think, too; HTC's research among its own users found they woke their phone up a couple of hundred times a day. Read on for full details and our first impressions, plus more on Sense 5 and the new universal remote TV app.

HTC One SV Review

HTC One SV Review

Flagship smartphones may get us talking, but it's mass market devices like the HTC One SV that get huge sales, and that's just what UK 4G trailblazer EE needs to help push LTE to the mainstream. HTC's mid-range Android ticks some high-end boxes, with its 4G support and slick design, but there are compromises in the mixture too, in order to hit a more affordable price point. Is the One SV the LTE Android for the everyman? Read on for our full review.

HTC One X Review

HTC One X Review

HTC needed to hit reset on its smartphone strategy. Lulled, perhaps, by several years of leading the Android device market, 2011 brought an incredibly strong push by Samsung and a growing mismatch between the agile software users desired and the bloated, over-stylized interface of HTC Sense. The HTC One X - and the One Series it leads - is the first of the company's attempt to reclaim its former position, a Tegra 3 toting powerhouse with a big screen, boastful camera and slick design. Still with the specter of the Samsung Galaxy S III on the near horizon, not to mention Apple's iPhone 5, the One X needs to do more than storm the spec sheet if it's to make the impact HTC requires. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

HTC: Quietly Blundering

HTC: Quietly Blundering

To say HTC is having a bad month is an understatement: share price ditching, outlook slashed and reeling from an embarrassing and unexpected defeat by Apple in the patent courts. The company that once led the smartphone segment has found its "Quietly Brilliant" message struggling to be heard above the crowd. The potential collapse of the S3 Graphics deal is just the latest stage of the company's ebbing momentum, though it can't blame the USITC entirely for investors' loss of faith. HTC lost its common Sense some time ago.

HTC Sensation XL Review

HTC Sensation XL Review

Seldom has the name of a phone been so obviously related to its proposition as with the HTC Sensation XL. Bearing a supersized 4.7-inch touchscreen along with Beats Audio, this "extra large" Android smartphone should arguably be the pinnacle of HTC's multimedia range. However, cost-cutting and some frustrating design decisions could undermine all that. Read on for the full SlashGear review.
