More HTC Bolt details ahead of unveiling this week

It’s no secret that HTC hasn’t exactly been doing well in the smartphone market. In fact, one might even wonder if HTC is better off just putting its eggs in the Vive VR basket instead. It might have had a bit of financial reprieve by becoming the Google Pixel’s manufacturer and assembler, but it has yet to stand on its own smartphone feet. That chance might come with the HTC Bolt, which could be announced this week. And based on this latest leak, it might be a rather high-end smartphone, but an odd one at that.

Google Pixel XL teardown tells its secrets (with HTC)

The first step in a Google Pixel XL teardown is the worst as its digitizer glass separates from its OLED too easy. This front panel removal is the only method with which repair happen with this device, and it requires some heat. Once the rim of the front panel is hot, separation requires a bit of a pick and pull - therein lies the danger. When the front panel becomes removed in the incorrect way, it'll separate with the swiftness.

HTC Bolt to run on Snapdragon 810, now FCC-certified

The HTC Bolt, also known as the “Acadia”, is now longer just a leak. It existence has all been but confirmed by the mighty FCC itself. Sadly, as with any FCC sighting, that’s pretty much all we can squeeze out of it. Fortunately, there are other sources, unofficial of course, that are more than happy to fill in the blanks. Unfortunately, the picture of the HTC Bolt being painted now isn’t exactly encouraging, not that the first impression was any better anyway.

HTC is expected to reveal a new smartphone later this month — long rumored as the HTC Bolt — and a handful of leaked images have given us our first look at the device in the wild.

HTC Android Wear “Halfbeak” smartwatch poses for the camera

You may criticize HTC for a lot of things, but one thing you can’t fault it is for being stubborn and never giving up. Sometimes, that works to its favor, like the HTC Vive and, still to be proven, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. Yet another example might soon be in the smartwatch category. Yes, HTC’s much delayed smartwatch is apparently closer to launch than we think. And unlike the growing number of dissidents, HTC’s “Halfbeak” smartwatch will still be running Android Wear.

Google Pixel phone carrier details and pricing review

Today we're having a very brief and simple look at the various ways in which a person might purchase and utilize a Google Pixel or Google Pixel XL smartphone. There aren't a whole lot of options, at first glance - Verizon even seems to be pushing the idea that they will be the sole carrier option for the smartphone, the only place a person will be able to buy from! But they're not. And it's not. Google has made this decision very simple for people that check news and review sources like SlashGear before they buy.

Oculus Rift and HTC Vive are amazing and you shouldn’t buy them

Oculus Rift and HTC Vive are amazing and you shouldn’t buy them

I've worked with and played with both Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive, and both of them are fantastic and amazing. But I wouldn't buy them myself. I've had both devices for extended periods of time, trying out some of the most fantastic games and making an effort to try new experiences to immerse myself in the future. But that's just it. Using either headset is a very solitary experience. It's not the sort of experience I'd recommend to friends. It can be fantastic, but only really for me.

Google Pixel details : release all about perception (and HTC)

The Google Pixel phone has arrived, in two sizes, complete with the company's new public image for their brand. The letter G, simplicity in all things, the absence of over-thinking names for apps and connecting devices to other smart devices and those devices to the web. If we're to believe Google will do what we're fairly sure they will do, this isn't going to be about a spec war. Google has long since discovered that their biggest competitor(s) don't play on that basketball court, anyway.

HTC Desire 10 line seeks to break the mold [UPDATE]

In the past, HTC Desire devices were known for their ability to entice at a level just below that of the brand's hero smartphone line. They've always been fine phones, and they've always had price points that put them in direct contention with the best in the mid-range market around the world.
