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.

HTC mid-ranged phones will have Blinkfeed and Ultrapixels too

HTC mid-ranged phones will have Blinkfeed and Ultrapixels too

It looks like a couple of the HTC One's flagship features will also be finding their way to HTC's future mid-ranged devices. Phil Roberson, the head of HTC UK and Ireland, stated that HTC's Blinkfeed and Ultrapixel services will be available for as many of its devices as possible. He says, "Wherever the technology is possible, we're looking to take as much of the technology and enrich all of our customers."

Will 2013 be the year of the HTC One?

Will 2013 be the year of the HTC One?

All of a sudden, I'm excited about HTC again. After a dire 2012 and a dreary line-up the twelve months before that, the HTC One is a blast of fresh air and has a real "return to form" feel for the company. I was lucky enough to spend some extended time with the One ahead of today's launch, and came away impressed with HTC's attention to detail and concerned that it would struggle to communicate its message. Rather than follow the trend of more megapixels, HTC opted out and went for a photography system that, it claims, is far more relevant to how people actually use their smartphones.

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.

HTC Sense 5 leaks with pared-back aesthetic for 2013

HTC Sense 5 leaks with pared-back aesthetic for 2013

HTC's hardware plans for 2013 have been leaking for some time now, with the 1080p HTC M7 expected to officially drop next month, but a new batch of screenshots suggest the company's HTC Sense interface is also in for a refresh. Less fussy, crisper, and generally shedding some of the "unnecessary design" of previous iterations, HTC Sense 5 is put a greater emphasis on typefaces and 2D iconography, according to the leaked screenshots shared by xda-developers' mdeejay.

HTC One SV hits Cricket Wireless in bright red

HTC One SV hits Cricket Wireless in bright red

In just about as bright a shade of red as is possible in a presentation of an image on the internet, the HTC One SV has appeared for Cricket Wireless. We reviewed a device rather similar to this by the name of HTC One VX carried by AT&T (or the SV in the UK), here we've got a contract-free HTC One device with many of the same benefits of its larger, more impressive cousins, with no obligation to pay for data each month.

HTC M7 specifications leak with hint of new Sense

HTC M7 specifications leak with hint of new Sense

This week one of the biggest points of interest in the leaked or otherwise tipped or rumored smartphone department has been the HTC M7, and today we've got a batch of new details for you straight from the anonymous barn. This machine is set to be working with an "all black design", it's being said today by a source speaking with HTC Source, and will be coming with a new version of HTC Sense that's both clean and simple - not generally what Sense is all about (so to speak). This device will still not likely be appearing until at least after next week as next week is CES 2013, but you never know!
