HTC One S Review

HTC One S Review

The HTC One S may slot into the midrange in the company's 2012 line-up, but HTC knows that it needs more than just average if it wants to reclaim its position in the smartphone segment. To do that, the One S delivers a slimline metal casing and ticks the big consumer draw elements of camera, screen and speed, with 8-megapixels, a crisp AMOLED display and 1.5GHz dual-core chipset brought out to play. Question is, does the One S deliver enough to distract from the heavyweight of the mainstream models, Apple's iPhone 4? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC makes no Sense

HTC makes no Sense

You have to ask yourself whether HTC enjoys floundering. The company was doing so well, with an eye-catching range of appealing new devices that didn't feel like yesterday's hardware, along with the promise of a more proactive approach to software and services. Now it has dropped the bomb on HTCSense.com, its web-based hub for smartphones and tablets: after April 30, Sense online syncing of Contacts, Messages, Footprints and Call History will all be wiped out. There's "renovation" incoming, HTC claims, but it's hard to think of a much worse way that the company could've handled it.

Has HTC redeemed itself?

Has HTC redeemed itself?

HTC had a lot to prove at Mobile World Congress, and the first signs are promising. The HTC One X, One S and One V are each distinctive and thoughtful designs, with none of the embarrassed "me too" shuffling many of the company's 2011 phones suffered. "It's a new HTC" UK head of marketing James Atkins told us in a pre-MWC briefing with the new One Series handsets last week. "We asked ourselves, what can we do to engage with consumers?"

HTC One S hands-on

HTC One S hands-on

While the One X may be HTC's new flagship, the One S is arguably the most cohesive all-round package: a balance of design, screen size and performance with the benefits of Ice Cream Sandwich. Sense 4.0 has been cleaned up and pushed back to its roots - improving the core OS experience, rather than merely making it look different - while HTC's legendary hardware expertise has been pushed to the next level with some attention-grabbing production processes. Read on for our hands-on first impressions.

HTC One X hands-on

HTC One X hands-on

HTC is pushing overall user experience with its MWC 2012 smartphone range, but it's hard not to talk about the HTC One X without spec hyperbole slipping in. The flagship of the new One Series, it's a 4.7-inch 720p HD "All-In Device" HTC insists, and - with a few blips - it's hard not to agree. After a long history of Qualcomm-powered devices, the One X brings NVIDIA's quadcore Tegra 3 into the HTC range. Read on for our hands-on first impressions.

HTC: Hero or Bust

HTC: Hero or Bust

HTC has a lot to prove in 2012, and already its first major event of the year, Mobile World Congress later this month, is shaping up to be a very interesting show. The first step in what the company has described as its new "Hero Strategy", we're expecting at least two high-end smartphones, the HTC One X and One S, a new tablet and, as of earlier today, the possibility of a streaming music service that could take on Spotify. Certainly ambitious, if it all pans out, but what will it take for HTC to turn around its ailing fortunes?

HTC streaming Spotify rival tipped

HTC streaming Spotify rival tipped

HTC could take on Spotify and Pandora with a streaming music service for its mobile devices, sources indicate, building on its Beats Audio investment with more unique features to differentiate its smartphones. The company is working with music producer and Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine on the unnamed streaming service, GigaOm's sources claim, in addition to new music-centric hardware such as Bluetooth-connected speakers that might debut as soon as Mobile World Congress later this month.

HTC Sense 4.0 previewed: Streamlined UI, 50GB DropBox integration, more

HTC Sense 4.0 previewed: Streamlined UI, 50GB DropBox integration, more

HTC has already said it plans to focus on quality not quantity with its 2012 range, but it seems the company has some significant software changes in the pipeline too with HTC Sense 4.0. The Android reskin initially offered a far more usable interface than the native OS, but Google's successive iterations narrowed the gap and HTC failed to keep pace with its own services. Now, according to some preview playtime by Pocketnow, that's changing: gone is the unnecessary heft, replaced with a pared-down UI, better typography and improved apps such as email and DropBox integration.
