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.

Siri obeys real-life mind control

Siri obeys real-life mind control

This week over at Honda R&D Americas, senior iOS architect Duane Cash is showing off a new brainwave control device and custom Siri API working with the iPhone in the real world. The initial test shows the man using a wave of his hand and the EEG signals his brain generates to start up the app and activate several functions on the device. This isn't the sort of thing you're going to be able to run out and buy right this minute, but given the relative simplicity of the build - so to speak - we might be seeing something like this from 3rd party developers (namely Honda R&D Americas) bringing such solutions soon.

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 official: 4.7-inch Android with 4MP “UltraPixel” magic

HTC One official: 4.7-inch Android with 4MP “UltraPixel” magic

The HTC One is here, a new Android flagship wrapping the innovation we've known HTC for up in a sleek all-metal chassis with no compromise on specifications. A 4.7-inch Full HD smartphone packing a 1.7GHz quadcore Snapdragon 600 processor, beautiful crafting, and a slick new version of HTC Sense, it'll begin its global roll-out in March 2013. There are some quirks on the spec-sheet, though, not least the "UltraPixel" camera with its 4-megapixel-equivalent resolution but which, HTC insists, is far more suited to the sort of everyday photography common among most users, and the "Zoe" system which blends stills and videos. In short, it's the super-phone HTC is counting on to turn around its fortunes in 2013.

BlackBerry Z10 Review

BlackBerry Z10 Review

RIM reborn… and now it's BlackBerry, if you don't mind. Rebranded, refreshed, and desperate to impress, you can't knock BlackBerry's enthusiasm about its now-eponymous platform. Then again, it's had several months of delays in which to practice, and the BlackBerry Z10 - first out of the gate to run the OS - is so close to the two prior variants of developer device that there isn't a long list of new features to be learned. Instead, and with the arguably more important Q10 QWERTY version a couple of months off, it's a case of making an argument for BlackBerry 10 to occupy the coveted "third ecosystem" spot, and the scraps left behind from Android and iOS. Is BlackBerry 10 the OS to give Windows Phone nightmares, reboot BlackBerry itself, and snatch both consumer and enterprise crowns? Read on for our full review.

Motorola X-Phone pops up in job listing

Motorola X-Phone pops up in job listing

We've heard plenty of rumors about the Motorola X-Phone, but it seems that Motorola itself just confirmed the device. Motorola has a job listing for a Senior Director of Product Management up on LinkedIn, and in the job listing, it refers to the X-Phone by name. After Phandroid spotted the listing, it seems that Motorola has made it inactive, which adds a bit more mystery to the rumors we've been hearing.
