The day is coming to a close and even though you are probably burned out on all of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 coverage, since it has fully dominated the past several hours, we wanted to toss out a specs comparison of Samsung’s latest flagship to the other top tier devices of the moment. After all, the phone arrives with a steeper than usual price and a set of specs that few can stand up with. But is all of this worth it when compared to say, the OnePlus 3 and its $400 price tag? Or is it better than the S7 Edge, which can be had for decent discounts these days? Or does it need a modular aspect like the G5 and Moto Z?
We’ll let you weigh in on that for now as we lead up to our full Galaxy Note 7 review. Let the battle begin. (more…)
Google hasn’t even come close to showing off the new Nexus phone(s) for 2016, but that hasn’t stopped a slow
trollout of leaks involving them. We’ve heard the specs, seen mock-up renders, and now have supposed wallpapers from the device that you can download. (more…)
Over the weekend, a supposed build.prop file from one of the upcoming HTC Nexus devices made its way online. This particular file is from the “sailfish” model, which is thought to be the smaller of the two new Google-created devices, and gives us details about the phone’s internals, like display, processor, etc. (more…)
Flashback to late 2009, early 2010. During that time, this whole Android thing was starting to really take off. Seemingly out of nowhere, Google introduced the HTC-made Nexus One. It was pure Android, featuring no third-party skin or anything of that nature. It was clean. The device even had an illuminated trackball. (more…)
With all of the Prime Day madness going on, it only makes sense for other companies to get in on the action. Beginning today through the end of the month, potential buyers can nab a HTC 10 for $100 off, bringing the price down from $699 to $599.
On top of the new phone you will receive, HTC appears to be throwing in $100 of credit towards HTC accessories. The credit is not limited to buyers from htc.com, though. According to HTC, if you can provide proof-of-purchase from any other retailer or channel, you can receive it. This credit can be spent of cases, extra chargers, or anything else they have listed on the HTC site as a phone accessory. Do note, this does exclude Vive accessories. (more…)
The Snapdragon 821 is now official and ready for the next wave of next-generation mobile devices. Think devices like the Galaxy Note 7 and the two HTC Nexus (“marlin” and “sailfish“) phones we expect to be introduced within the next month. (more…)
If you believe the interwebs, we should see two Nexus phones once again this year, only this time only one manufacturer will make them. That manufacturer is thought to be HTC. Last week, purported specs for the smaller of the two HTC Nexus phones surfaced, and now this week, we are getting specs for the other, larger model. For those keeping track of the dirty details, the smaller is running under codename “Sailfish,” while the larger, possibly more premium phone is the “Marlin.”
Let’s talk about HTC Nexus “Marlin.” (more…)
HTC took to Twitter shortly after Google’s unveiling of the Nougat name for Android N, confirming that three of its devices will eventually receive the update to Nougat. The three devices are the HTC 10, One M9, and One A9.
If you have another device from HTC, stay hopeful that your phone might also receive the update, as HTC mentions more devices may be announced to receive the update once Google makes Android N available to OEMs. At this time, HTC can only confirm the aforementioned devices, though. (more…)
