HTC VIVE Wireless Adapter Review

HTC VIVE Wireless Adapter Review

The HTC VIVE Wireless Adapter is a bit of technology that changes the overall feeling of reality in a room-scale VR experience. This is an add-on to the original HTC VIVE and the HTC VIVE Pro. This adapter isn't required to enter virtual reality, but it'll make the process a lot less painful if you're not particularly sure-footed. Less painful, that is, if you didn't have a rough time setting up the VIVE in the first place.

HTC U12 Life touts dual cameras, dual finish, familiar design

No, you’re not seeing double or getting a sense of deja vu. This isn’t the OG Google Pixel. You can immediately tell by the lack of thick bezels on the front and the dual cameras on the back. But it definitely bears a striking resemblance, which might not be all too surprising given the Pixel’s history. But while Google may have used that dual color as a differentiating factor, the HTC is embracing it wholeheartedly as the HTC U12 Life’s theme and identity.

Puns aside, here are the top picks for the pure Android experience you’ve always wanted but couldn’t get because of the Pixel phones’ price tag.

HTC might be using Nokia’s playbook

HTC might be using Nokia’s playbook

According to a tip this afternoon, Nokia is about to go - or has already gone - the way of Nokia in the smartphone business. The tip suggests that HTC might begin using ODM for smartphone manufacturing. That'd mean that HTC would continue to be the brand, and HTC would continue to design phones, but HTC wouldn't be manufacturing the phones themselves.

Android Pie update OEM checklist: who’s in and who’s not

Android Pie update OEM checklist: who’s in and who’s not

It’s that time of year again. New Android version, new guessing and then waiting game for which phones will get the update and, just as importantly, when. Things have gotten better over the years, in no small part thanks to high-profile security scares and Apple gloating, but it’s far from being ideal. Ideally, that would be when lists like this will be superfluous. But until that glorious day, here are some of the smartphone makers who have gone public about their love for Pie and those that have been unsurprisingly yet annoyingly silent for the past weeks.

To help make their customers guess less, some manufacturers have chimed in, publicly committing to bringing Android 9 Pie to at least some of their latest devices “soon”.

HTC U12 Life specs leak prove HTC isn’t giving up yet

HTC U12 Life specs leak prove HTC isn’t giving up yet

Both HTC and LG have been reported to be eying only one flagship this year but only one of them has so far proven that to be true. The HTC U12+ has no rival among the company’s own ranks but that doesn’t mean HTC won’t try to have other variants of that. Indeed, as per its usual practice, it seems to be ready to reveal a mid-range version of its 2018 champion, the HTC U12 Life. But while it’s undoubtedly a step up from last year’s HTC U11 Life, the question is always whether it’s enough.
