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.

HTC One hands-on: UltraPixel Camera and Zoe

HTC's most controversial decision with the HTC One is going to be the choice of camera. In a market where "more" is so often seen as "better" the 4-megapixel equivalent main camera on the back of the One is going to raise eyebrows, no matter how hard HTC pushes its "UltraPixel" branding. Assuming the company can get would-be users to pay attention to the theory, though, there's a whole lot to like about the UltraPixel approach: increasing the amount of data for each pixel that makes up the final frame.

HTC Mini is your Butterfly’s candybar remote control and handset

HTC doesn't have a smartwatch like the Pebble, but it does have the HTC Mini, an NFC-equipped remote control and handset accessory which will be exclusively offered in China alongside the HTC Butterfly. The svelte handset - resembling an old candybar-style dumbphone - hooks up via Bluetooth to your Butterfly, so HTC suggests, and can be used for making calls without pulling the smartphone out of your pocket, as well as other things.

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.

HTC One VX Review

HTC recently made their case for a top-tier handset back in November, with the DROID DNA boasting the highest-resolution display of any smartphone. However, in order to balance out its offerings, HTC has a new budget-friendly handset in town.

Does it provide value to entry-level minded customers without sacrificing a lot in terms of features and performance? Let’s find out.
