Samsung managed to keep the Galaxy S5 out of public view until the press got a hold of the 2014 flagship and mistakenly outed it less than 24 hours before its official unveiling. HTC on the other hand, still hasn’t officially announced the “All New HTC One” (One 2014), yet we have seen the device in a 12-minute video and more images than we even know what to do with at this point. HTC sucks at controlling leaks.
In today’s set of leaks, we not only get a new video of the phone in action, but also in a series of photos that shows off its exterior trimmings and how it compares in size to the HTC One Max. (more…)
If you happened to tune in last night for the series premier of Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey, then hopefully you are feeling a bit more like a kid again today. The show was fantastic, and if you can’t get enough, then it’s time to grab the official app from Google Play. (more…)
Competition is a good thing, especially when it comes to smartphone plans. Almost certainly in response to T-Mobile’s doubling of data for entry-level price tier customers last Friday, AT&T announced a price cut for no-contract plans with two or fewer lines.
Single-line Mobile Share Value plans now start at $65, a $15 savings, while two-line accounts are $90. That price will net you 2GB of data, unlimited talk and text, unlimited international messaging in 190 countries and 50GB of AT&T Locker cloud storage. In addition, AT&T is offering a $100 bill credit for activating a new line of postpaid service. (more…)
While in the beta for QuizUp, many of the testers were surprised that when attempting to use QuizUp with Android Runtime (ART), the app would immediately crash. The developers stated there was an incompatibility with the two, and that they would work hard to bring ART support to the app as soon as possible.
While ART is still an experimental feature, found in the Developer options under the settings menu on Kit Kat devices, QuizUp received an update this week on Google Play to support the experimental runtime for everyone who currently uses it. (more…)
Over the weekend, a system dump of the HTC One (2014) was performed by a member on XDA. As we have seen with previous system dumps, the world now has access to all of the wallpapers that HTC has preloaded with the device. Thankfully, they are actually pretty good papers. (more…)

This afternoon, HTC continued their translation of technical details for features from last year’s HTC One while also teasing the “All New HTC One” for a third time. The spot is as painful to watch as the previous two, but this time focuses on the UltraPixel camera from the original One. After diving through its ability to take shots in low-light situations, the on-screen duo goes into how the “All New HTC One” “has added” a…Well, we don’t know because everything is blurred out after that part.

A few weeks back, a report surfaced suggesting that Google would unveil a wearables platform some time in the month of March, with a device potentially arriving a couple of months later at Google I/O.
