HTC One solves the desirability dilemma

HTC One solves the desirability dilemma

HTC has been holding its collective, corporate breath, desperate for its luck to change. February's HTC One Series faced a formidable challenge: a reasonably strong start to 2011 had dwindled until, by Q4, the company was a shadow of its former, innovative self. Now, with the first One X and One S reviews proving positively glowing, it seems HTC could finally be turning a corner. Having spent time with both models, though, what really impressed me was the feel that HTC had finally banished the accountants from the drawing board.

HTC One series starts Qualcomm / NVIDIA battery wars

This week we're getting our first look at the smartphone-based next-generation processors of two giants (Qualcomm and NVIDIA) as they sit on the HTC One series reviewed earlier today. What we're seeing is that not only are both of these chipmakers bringing heat to the processing world, they've begun a true war on battery conservation. The HTC One X smartphone contains NVIDIA's Tegra 3 quad-core processor with an extra core for low-powered tasks and sleeping, while the HTC One S contains the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip, made also to keep itself conservative when it comes to draining your power.

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.

28nm production halt could delay Snapdragon S4 products

Qualcomm have so far avoided chasing cores, saying that Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core chip is “overkill”. Instead the company is hoping that the latest version of its Snapdragon chip, the S4 “Krait”, will provide enough performance with just two cores. While development platforms have gone out to various publications and developers for testing, the 28nm chip could be facing production delays, which would have a knock-on effect on phones like the HTC One X and One S.

HTC Mobile World Congress wrap-up

HTC Mobile World Congress wrap-up

LG and Samsung have been dropping pre-Mobile World Congress hints all of last week, but it would be hard to argue against the fact that HTC has owned the opening night of Mobile World Congress. Their three-pronged HTC One line isn't just a new series of phones, it's a dividing line for the the company, signifying the beginning of a more centralized strategy and (hopefully) a clean break from their rather disappointing second half of 2011. They're hitting the high, middle and low end of the smartphone market with three extremely targeted models, all sharing the same design DNA. Naturally, SlashGear was there to cover it all.
