HTC One M9 gets updated: camera and cooling improved

HTC might be getting a lot of flak lately over it's dismal performance and its disappointing flagship, but one can't fault the OEM for lack of trying. Ever since it launched, the HTC One M9 has repeatedly been update to address some common complaints, particularly around the camera and the overheating that Qualcomm still denies. At least, as much as software updates can fix them. Another round of updates is working its way to devices in waves, bringing in some more improvements, like better noise reduction and smarter heat management.

Xiaomi did something interesting with Snapdragon 810

Xiaomi did something interesting with Snapdragon 810

If you're a smartphone company that doesn't make its own mobile processors, you're at a disadvantage. Xiaomi isn't at the scale to follow Apple and Samsung and dive into quite silicon yet - though the increasingly popular manufacturer is growing rapidly - but that doesn't mean the latest Mi Note Pro doesn't have a performance edge over Snapdragon 810-powered rivals like the HTC One M9. Usually they're rarer than hen's teeth in North America, so you can consider me curious when I had the opportunity to do some benchmarking with the fettled phone.

HTC J Butterfly: HTC’s most powerful phone you can’t have

HTC reveals the HTC J Butterfly, a large-screened smartphone destined for carriers inside Japan.

This device also has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor under the hood alongside 3GB of RAM, more than enough to get you through your biggest and best apps and games. In Japan, of course. Not the United States as such.

LG G4 Review – The hero Android needs

Life’s not so good when you’re stuck in the shadow of a big rival with deep pockets, but if anything can drag LG into the sunlight, it’s the new G4. LG’s flagship Android smartphone for 2015, the G4 takes what we loved about the G3 before it - and made it into the Android-to-have among those in the know - and hits the boost button. Screen, camera, performance, all have been in line for an upgrade. Nonetheless, the rest of the mobile world hasn’t stood still either, so does the G4 have what it takes to push back against Samsung’s excellent Galaxy S6?

HTC One M8s unveiled: 13MP camera, BoomSound, and more

HTC has introduced the HTC One M8s, a new mobile offering with a 5-inch FHD display and all the fine trimmings you'd expect: a higher-end camera, high-quality audio, HTC's own software, and a design that's the same as the already available HTC One M8 (the latter of which we've fully reviewed). The maker is planning to launch the handset in three different colors -- Amber Gold, Glacial Silver, and Gunmetal Gray -- in different markets. We've all the details after the break!

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

What does it take to create a smartphone design classic? For the HTC One M9, the answer is relentless refinement, improving what worked in its metal-bodied predecessors rather than chasing the latest trends. The smartphone spec arms-race is relentless, however, notable as much for its hyperbole as the minimal attention span of would-be buyers in carrier stores. If you can’t make your case in seconds, you’re going to lose the sale. Amid fierce competition, HTC doesn’t exactly have the greatest track record of playing up its strengths and capitalizing on its advantages. Has that changed in the One M9?
