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.

HTC Desire 600 official: Dual-SIM Android with BoomSound and BlinkFeed

HTC Desire 600 official: Dual-SIM Android with BoomSound and BlinkFeed

HTC has revealed its latest Android smartphone, the HTC Desire 600, a midrange dual-SIM handset with a quadcore processor set to go on sale in June. Packing Qualcomm's 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 quadcore with 1GB of RAM, the Desire 600 has a 4.5-inch Super LCD2 qHD display and runs BlinkFeed - launched on the HTC One - on top of Android and HTC Sense. 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.

Samsung GALAXY S 4 vs HTC One

Samsung GALAXY S 4 vs HTC One

Now that the Samsung GALAXY S 4 has been revealed officially and the HTC One is out in reviewers' hands, it's time to do the first big battle royal between the two. With the GALAXY S 4 you've got Samsung's continuation of a legacy with a device that looks rather similar to the Samsung Galaxy S III, not to mention the Galaxy Note devices that've been revealed in the time since the smartphone's last iteration's reveal. With the HTC One we've got what appears to be more of an utter re-vamp of the company's wares from top to bottom - which approach suits you best?

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."

HTC Sense 5 coming to older devices

HTC Sense 5 coming to older devices

HTC announced its new One device last week along with Sense 5, which is a completely-redesigned user interface that will only be available on the HTC One. Or will it? Confirmed by HTC's Facebook marketing department, Sense 5 will be making its way to older HTC devices, including "global variants" of the One X, One X+, One S, and the Butterfly.

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.
