HTC gives Sensation a WiMAX makeover for HTC EVO 4G+

HTC gives Sensation a WiMAX makeover for HTC EVO 4G+

HTC has outed its latest 4G smartphone, and though the dual-core HTC EVO 4G+ WiMAX handset is initially intended for South Korea's WiBro networks, we'd be very surprised if it didn't make it over to North American shores. Packing both WiMAX and HSPA connectivity, the EVO 4G+ basically takes the guts of the HTC Sensation - including the 1.2GHz dual-core CPU and 4.3-inch qHD resolution display - and gives it a squared off chassis.

HTC: We’ll drop apps to make Desire Gingerbread fit

HTC has confirmed that it will be dropping apps from the HTC Desire's Android 2.3 Gingerbread build, so as to fit the upgraded OS into the ROM the smartphone has available. The company frustrated and then bemused Desire owners earlier this week by first announcing that the Gingerbread update had been cancelled and then, in the face of significant backlash, reinstated again. However, it seems there are are compromises to be made if you want the latest software.

HTC Salsa Review

HTC Salsa Review

The first of HTC's so-called Facebook phones, the HTC Salsa, arrived with plenty of fanfare at MWC 2011 back in February - the looming head of Mark Zuckerberg on the big screen, issuing a blanket blessing to all phones that prioritized Facebook integration - then left us scratching our collective heads as to whether we truly loved the social network quite enough to warrant a dedicated button for it. Now the lilac lifestyle phone is in our hands, encouraging us to detail the minutiae of our lives with everyone willing to read it. Check out as we over-share on the Salsa after the cut, in the full SlashGear review.

T-Mobile Sensation 4G Review

T-Mobile Sensation 4G Review

The approach of the T-Mobile Sensation 4G may have been keeping Android fans awake at night, but I wasn't one of them. I have to admit, I haven't been feeling HTC's recent handsets. Sure, they're well made and reliable, but it also felt like the company had taken a cookie-cutter approach, churning out little-changed me-too phones across the carriers. HTC's - since moderated - attitude towards bootloader locking didn't help. More importantly, I've been using an imported Samsung Galaxy S II and fell in love with the smoking fast dual-core, slim and light build, brilliant Super AMOLED Plus display and excellent camera. For me, the GSII was the phone to have right now; could the Sensation 4G convince me otherwise?

HTC Sensation Review

HTC Sensation Review

Once, Android's primary challenge was the iPhone: proving that Google's open-source platform - and the devices that ran it - were good enough to share retail space with Apple's groundbreaking smartphone. Now, with dominant market-share and increasingly polished handsets, the battle is between 'droids. Into the fray drops the HTC Sensation, the company's new dual-core flagship. It's certainly the best-spec'd HTC to date, but is it enough to beat Samsung's all-conquering Galaxy S II? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
