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?

The changing of the guard: Cher Wang is the new HTC CEO

CEO changes happen. Sometimes, the current head steps down for health or personal reasons. Sometimes, it's merely to give way to a younger generation. But on average, such high-level management shifts usually betray some problem that a company is scrambling to resolve, partly by changing the CEO. When that company is HTC and that CEO is Peter Chou, that might very well be the case. The Taiwanese OEM has just announced that, effective immediately, Ms. Cher Wang will be the company's new chief executive, bring perhaps hopes of a revived HTC.

Official HTC One M9 images & specs leaked on German retail site

Official HTC One M9 images & specs leaked on German retail site

HTC has already confirmed that it will officially reveal its next generation One smartphone at Mobile World Conference in a little over a week, but it seems like one German retailer jumped the gun and accidentally posted the specs and official images on their website early. While the product pages on Cyberport's site for the HTC One M9 have now been taken down, it just wasn't quick enough. The fact that it's this close to HTC's March 1st unveiling, and that retailers often some info early enough to have product listings ready, seems to improve the chances that this is the real deal.

Lenovo Vibe Z3 Pro leak reveals some juicy specs

It's been barely a year since Lenovo put out the Vibe Z2 Pro but it seems that it already has a successor in the works and ready for a debut next month. The Vibe Z3 Pro, as the name might suggest, would be the Chinese OEM's high-end contender for this year, at least based on these leaked specs. Suffice it to say, the Vibe Z3 Pro could very well go head to head with upcoming flagships, presuming it gets a wider distribution and demand to match that of those big players.

HTC delays Lollipop for carrier models of One M7 and M8

HTC delays Lollipop for carrier models of One M7 and M8

Rome wasn't built in a day, and some things take more than 90 days to make. After starting a new trend of transparency among manufacturers, HTC is now effectively breaking its 90-day guarantee. It has announced that it will take longer for carrier versions of its 2013 and 2014 One flagship to get their Android 5.0 dessert and it is explaining, though very briefly, why. And although one can't probably argue quality vs speed, some might ask why it took so long before HTC formally acknowledged the delay.

HTC One M9 Plus leaked with DuoCamera, fingerprint sensor

It seems that the HTC One M9, elsewhere called the Hima, won't be the only star of the Taiwanese manufacturer's show come MWC 2015. A new set of leaks are popping up, pointing to the existence of a particular Hima_Ultra, also known as the One M9 Plus. Now, while the name might hint at a larger variant of the One M9, the "plus" there might actually refer more to "plus features" rather than size, equipping it with some extras that the One M9 might not have.

Xiaomi Mi Note crams all the buzzwords inside a phablet

Xiaomi Mi Note crams all the buzzwords inside a phablet

Xiaomi has indeed come out today with its Redmi Note successor and, quite surprisingly, it's not the Redmi Note 2. Going with a different naming scheme this time around, the Mi Note has the same message as the Redmi Note and Xiaomi's other flagships: you don't have to sell an arm or a leg or both just to get a high-quality smartphone. And with all the high-end features and details that Xiaomi is revealing about the Mi Note, that is very well a proposal that many will be willing to swallow.

HTC teases huge surprises for 2015

HTC teases huge surprises for 2015

2015 has just begun and CES 2015 is just a few days away, so it's the perfect time to put your thinking caps on. Or alternatively, your crystal balls. Of course, HTC is claiming it has big things in store this year, but has barely anything else to say just yet. So it's probably up to us to conjecture what the OEM has in mind. A word of caution though: the mobile market is a highly volatile and quickly changing space, and expecting too much can sometimes lead to heartbreak.

HTC One for Windows nabs an Xbox Dot View cover

Today we're having a quick peek at the Xbox Dot View cover - a sort of limited-engagement release made specifically for the Windows Phone version of the HTC One (M8). This case works exactly the same as the standard HTC Dot View cover, but here you're getting it in Xbox Green. You've also got the Xbox brand on the back, for good measure. This case is part of a push for the HTC One (M8) with Windows this holiday season, coming with the device with Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile inside the United States.

HTC One M8 for Windows sneaks into T-Mobile

HTC One M8 for Windows sneaks into T-Mobile

Windows Phone devices outside of the Nokia, now Microsoft, Lumia line do exist but they might as well be non-existent given the rather low profile they have. HTC and Microsoft, however, wanted to change all that and offer the platform's fans a truly high-end option. Now, the HTC One M8 with Windows edition has finally completed its US carrier round, rather quietly creeping into T-Mobile's online catalog. With HTC's admirable design and hardware, this smartphone could very well be the Windows Phone flagship, if the OS can catch up.
