AT&T’s HTC One M8 Should Get Lollipop Today

Owners of the AT&T HTC One M8, your Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update is ready! “Technical approval” has been granted, so at any minute, a world of WiFi draining bugs hidden behind the beauty of Material Design will be upon you. It’s glorious, especially if you like charging phones all of the time or noticing your WiFi connection coming and going on the regular. Ahhh, software, we love you.

It’s not all bugs, though! You also get bold colors, fluid animations, and lock screen notifications. Lock screen notifications! Oh, there is a new “battery settings panel” too, which you’ll be staring at constantly trying to figure out why your battery life has been cut in half over night. Hah, yeah.

Go get it!  (more…)

AT&T HTC One M9 Unboxing

With one now in our possession ahead of the April 10 launch date, we thought we would take it for a spin in an unboxing video to share some initial thoughts before we get to fully testing this bad boy. How different is it than the One M8 at first look? Does it feel better, worse, the same when first held? How odd does that squared-off camera look in person? Is anyone really going to be able to tell the difference between the volume and power buttons without looking? We will hopefully answer all of that in this quick preview.  (more…)
