As it turns out today is a good day to be an HTC fan — the Taiwanese company announced earlier this morning that the revamped HTC One X+ was in fact a real thing, and now AT&T has just confirmed that it will carry that new flagship device later this year.
Interestingly, the One X+ won’t be alone either, as AT&T has also announced that it will sell the lower-end HTC One VX alongside it… → Read More
Samsung and LG have already crossed the 5-inch smartphone screen barrier, and now it seems that HTC is planning to make a similar leap any day now. The folks at Engadget happened upon what appears to be an early press render of a hefty new HTC handheld — supposedly dubbed the HTC One X 5 because of its sizable screen — on Chinese microblogging site Sina Weibo.
But what’s that you say? The… → Read More
HTC is having a party and the media is invited. Scheduled for September 19th in New York City, it’s highly likely that HTC will debut Windows Phone 8 devices at this event.
The rumor mill has been slow to churn out a high volume of HTC rumors as of late, but the time frame seems right for a Windows Phone 8 device. If HTC does reveal its upcoming Windows 8 devices, chances are they will not be… → Read More
Does bigger always mean better? It depends on who you ask of course, but more than a few major smartphone manufacturers would probably say yes. Even the notorious hold-outs at Apple are rumored to be working on something a bit larger than their usual — in short, the race to be the biggest doesn’t show any signs of letting up.
In a market where big smartphones reign supreme though, Verizon and… → Read More
I can’t imagine most U.S. HTC fans were glad to hear that AT&T’s version of the One X would go without the quad-core Tegra 3 chipset, but now it seems as though they’ve dodged quite the bullet. Earlier today, HTC acknowledged that some of their Tegra-packing flagship devices were having issues with latching onto a Wi-Fi signal and announced that they’ve put together a fix for it.
Sadly… → Read More
Sony is certainly no stranger to the mobile space — the recently-divorced Sony Mobile Communications branch has been announcing plenty of handsets lately, but the company has decided that their PlayStation-certified hardware efforts need to extend beyond their own walls.
That said, Sony has just revealed that their first non-Sony hardware partner will be none other than HTC. → Read More
The Evo 4G LTE is a fine phone. There certainly aren’t any glaring issues: Sense has been considerably streamlined, and it’s really good at what it was made to do, which is entertain. The design language is a little loud, though maybe that’s what it takes to shake things up in the land of Android. (LAndroid.) But unlike the Evos that have come before it, this latest iteration doesn’t really bring… → Read More
I’m smack dab in the middle of my HTC Evo 4G LTE review (the full review will be up tomorrow), but as I judge, I felt the need to bring John Biggs into the mix for a little Fly or Die.
Now, John is notoriously hard on Android phones, namely because they’re all incredibly similar. The Evo 4G LTE is no different. I, on the other hand, think it brings some pretty strong design language to the… → Read More
The Evo 4G LTE is one of the best phones to land on Sprint shelves in a while, but that’s not to say it has no competition over at the Yellow carrier. The Galaxy Nexus has propped itself up as the Android phone to beat, while the iPhone 4S is available at the same price: $199.
So what will it take to pass up the iPhone and the GalNex for the latest iteration of the Evo line?
We’ve put… → Read More
