The HTC One A9 has received a lot of attention for looking a lot like the iPhone, and rightfully so. It looks a lot like the iPhone, but there’s a lot more to the phone than that. This isn’t an iPhone running Android; it’s an HTC phone through and through. The A9 feels like the culmination of everything that HTC began to do back in 2013 with the release of the original HTC One (M7). HTC has come a long way since then and it shows in the A9.
This is our HTC One A9 review. (more…)
Like Google and Motorola before it, HTC has uncoupled a system app from firmware. HTC Sense Input, the default keyboard on HTC devices, made its unceremonious debut on Google Play this morning.
Predictably, Sense Input is only compatible with the HTC One (M7), HTC One (M8), and the latest phones in the Desire series. Sense seems to be a requirement, too – the keyboard won’t install on Google Play Editions of either One. (more…)
This year’s flagship HTC device, the One (M8), may have just been released, but HTC doesn’t want you to think that it has forgotten about its older devices. At the M8 announcement, HTC announced that it would be updating older devices “sometime this spring,” but we now have a better indication of when exactly that will be. (more…)
Thanks to a series of screenshots post by blog Android Revolution HD, we may have first look at HTC’s soon-to-be-released Sense 5.5 Android skin. The screenshots show a familiar design language to the Sense 5 that was first introduced with the HTC One, but includes new options to help expand its polish. Most would argue that HTC has one of the better Android skins on the planet, and these subtle changes should only help solidify that claim. (more…)
Owners of the One S from HTC got some sad news recently, as the company announced via support forum that their devices won’t be receiving any bumps in builds of Android or Sense. The device currently sits at Android 4.1 with Sense 4+ built on top and there it will remain for the rest of its life. (more…)
Love it or hate it, HTC is fully behind their Android skin, Sense. With each upgrade it is promised to be slimmer and easier to use, but still people complain about it getting in the way of their phone. Sense 5 debuted with their newest flagship the HTC One this year, but according to an HTC ROM developer, Sense 5 is upcoming for last year’s device, the One X. (more…)
With HTC’s new Sense 5, they introduced a ton of new wallpapers and someone finally ripped them from the device. With a few classy black and whites, some colorful tones, and even some Jelly Bean-looking patterns, these are our favorite Sense papers we have seen in a while. (more…)
After seeing the picture of Sense 5.0 up and running on a DROID DNA, XDA member mdeejay brought up the fact that the phone is actually running a ported build from a Sprint M7 which has the new Sense on it. He claims to have it working nicely, but can’t release it at this time. Thankfully, he was able to at least share some screenshots from it, so that we can see some of the changes in store in this latest version of HTC’s Sense. (more…)
