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. A 5.9-inch display, metal body, and UltraPixel camera technology are arguably ingredients for the perfect phablet, but has HTC baked the One max badly? Read on for our full review.

HTC Desire 601 brings “One” features on a budget

HTC Desire 601 brings “One” features on a budget

Bringing a 4.5-inch qHD display to the market with Android and several of the high-powered features that made the HTC One one of the company's most sought-after smartphone in years, the HTC Desire 601 had been made official today. This device works with features such at HTC BlinkFeed and media enhancers like HTC Zoe and Video Highlights, making the software experience rather similar to the HTC One. With HTC BoomSound in a couple of front-facing speakers, this device is just as loud as the HTC One as well.

HTC One X+ Android 4.2.2 software update leaked: BlinkFeed and Zoe aboard

HTC One X+ Android 4.2.2 software update leaked: BlinkFeed and Zoe aboard

It would appear that HTC isn't going to keep a selection of key software features from its 2013 HTC One lineup here in the present if one (unofficial) software leak for the HTC One X+ has anything to say about it. Though Engadget's chat with HTC suggests that this software update is not one sent by HTC on purpose, it does exist. And the possibility that HTC could send out something rather similar officially, rather soon, is very real.

HTC One’s MoDaCo.SWITCH coming to Galaxy S 4 as well: change-up!

HTC One’s MoDaCo.SWITCH coming to Galaxy S 4 as well: change-up!

The original HTC One works with HTC's own "Sense" user interface, while the Google Play edition works with Googles' - MoDaCo.SWITCH allows you to choose which of the two you like better at any given time. This system is a hack, at heart, requiring that you root your device before you allow yourself the freedom to choose either the HTC Sense or Android Jelly Bean Vanilla iteration at the tap of a button (and a few seconds' wait). What you get, though, is a completely unique set of controls.

HTC One mini Review

HTC One mini Review

Several months after the first market availability of the original HTC One, the HTC One mini emerges as a compact amalgamation of everything that was right about its predecessor. Working with a smaller body, a lower resolution on a sized-down display, and a processor that's not quite as powerful as the Qualcomm SoC on the HTC One, can this miniature second wave of a smartphone strike true for those of us with a smaller palm?

HTC One mini hands-on

HTC One mini hands-on

HTC isn't just relying on the One to turn its 2013 around: the company has the HTC One mini to help with that, a new 4.3-inch version of the aluminum smartphone. Slimming the flagship down - as well as some of the core specifications - the One mini is fronted by a 720p touchscreen where the One has 1080p, but still keeps the UltraPixel camera and Zoe photography system, among other things. We caught up with the new smartphone to see if the One's undoubtable charms have been distilled down to a more hand-friendly size.

HTC M4 vs HTC One: wait for Verizon, or wait even longer?

HTC M4 vs HTC One: wait for Verizon, or wait even longer?

As the HTC One is confirmed for Verizon here in the United States, so too has an "HTC One Mini" been all but confirmed by a set of leaked up-close photos. These photos are either the work of a hardware tester or an extremely dedicated mock-up artist - as we're inclined to believe the former, it's become apparent that a new choice must be made for those waiting for their favorite amalgamation of HTC and Android. Should you pick up an HTC One now, or does it make more sense to wait for the ever-so-slightly smaller HTC M4?

HTC One Android 4.2.2 (with Sense 5.0) update detailed

HTC One Android 4.2.2 (with Sense 5.0) update detailed

The update to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on both the HTC One and the HTC Butterfly (international version of the DROID DNA, that is), has been a long time coming. Today it's appeared only on some international models of the HTC One with a bit of a boost to Sense 5.0 as well (without the name change) - and the aesthetic changes are what's heading the pack. While we're expecting this change to hit carrier models in the near future, right this minute it's just popping up on a select few models across the sea.

That means custom news stories, interspersed with Facebook and Twitter updates, right on the homescreen.

AT&T HTC One Review

AT&T HTC One Review

Is the HTC One the best Android smartphone around, and has the wait for the AT&T LTE version been worth it? We've already spent more than 6,000 words on the HTC One, back in our review of the European version, but this was our chance to put the first US-specific variant to the test. To do that we took it out into the wild to put the key selling points - specifically the UltraPixel camera and the 4G speed - on trial at the New York Auto Show, among other places, as well as to see if the non-removable battery is a deal-breaker in the face of the fast-incoming Samsung Galaxy S 4. Read on to find out how the HTC One fared.
