HTC Details Its Upcoming Deals for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Beyond

HTC is getting in on the deals action for next week, and has detailed its plans for Black Friday, the weekend, Cyber Monday, and beyond. Stated in a release from HTC, the company will be offering a trade-in program for the One A9, where you can score the device for as little as $0 down by trading in your old smartphone. Naturally, this all depends on what you end up trading in for the device.

If you trade in an iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, HTC will grant you a $499 rebate, which is the exact full retail price of the One A9. If you don’t have an iPhone, you can trade in a Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge for a $200 rebate (ouch), and use that towards the cost of the One A9. For those who trade in a LG G3 or LG G4, you only receive $100 rebate to put towards a One A9.  (more…)

HTC One (M8) Google Play Edition Gets Marshmallow

Hey, we have Google Play Edition news! Anyone remember those dinosaurs? GPE devices were members of that super confusing line of phones from Google that weren’t Nexus devices, but were (for some reason) still supposed to run stock Android and be sold by Google and be updated by Google…kind of…with some manufacturer support. Yeah, you forgot about them and that’s OK.

For the six of you who might have purchased one, and that purchase happened to be for the HTC One (M8) Google Play Edition, get ready for Android 6.0 Marshmallow! HTC’s Mo Versi says that the update is now live, which is kind of crazy.  (more…)

HTC One A9 Review

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…)
