HTC One Sense 6.0 arrives this weekend

Over the weekend several HTC One units from the previous generation have been updated to Sense 6.0. This means that they’ll have the same - or rather similar - software to that of the HTC One (M8). This update does not include (of course) some of the camera features included with the HTC One (M8) as this device (the M7) does not have the same hardware as its replacement.

HTC Q413 brings Beats-based gain, smaller operating loss

This week we're having a peek at a bit of mixed news from HTC, with their final quarter of 2013 being wrapped up with both a gain and a loss. Speaking from an operating loss perspective, the group lost NT$1.56 billion - that's $52 million in USD.

Verizon HTC One Max release coming “this holiday season”

There's little doubt now that Verizon is switching up the way it does business with HTC smartphones, bringing on the HTC One Max not long after the release of the original HTC One. While normally we'd see Verizon carrying a single HTC device of the same caliber, this time around the 4G LTE-toting mobile company is making with a double-down. Have a peek at SlashGear's HTC One Max review to see how very similar to the original HTC One this larger device really is.

HTC One max Review

HTC One max Review

HTC should've had a best-seller with the HTC One. The metal-bodied phone was the go-to recommendation for Android fans in the know, and that it didn't get the attention of Samsung's Galaxy range is arguably more about marketing than anything else. HTC followed Samsung's example in distilling the brand for a smaller version, in the shape of the HTC One mini, and has now scaled things up with the HTC One max.
