AT&T HTC One M9 Unboxing

Hey, look, the HTC One M9! Not only that, but it’s the HTC One M9 for AT&T in Gunmetal Gray!

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…)

HTC’s Lead Designer Departs, Company Announces Daniel Hundt to Take Over

After not even a full year in his new role, HTC’s VP of Industrial Design, Jonah Becker, is departing the company. For a bit of context, in late 2008, HTC acquired One & Co, which was led by Scott Croyle, Jonah Becker, and Daniel Hundt.

Scott Croyle left HTC in April of 2014, and at that time, Jonah Becker took over his role. Now with Croyle and Becker gone, HTC announced that Hundt, the last remaining piece of One & Co, will succeed the position. (more…)

Reminder: HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Pre-orders Now Live

It’s pre-order day for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and One M9. Well, at least on carriers not named Verizon. Big Red pre-orders for these phones won’t start up until April 1, so keep that in mind.

Regardless, each of these phones is now purchasable through AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. You can also get them from many retail locations, such as Best Buy. And as a bonus, if you order the Galaxy S6 through Best Buy, you get a free wireless charger.  (more…)

Thursday Poll: Which Flagship are You Ordering? Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, or One M9?

Tomorrow, pre-orders go up for the all-new HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge. There is a lot of hype surrounding each device, so it is only natural that we would want to find out which way you are all leaning.

Pre-orders for each device will take place through numerous carriers and retailers (One M9 details, GS6 and GS6 Edge details), so getting your hands on these phones should not be too difficult. The only question is, which one should you get?

Samsung introduced a revamped TouchWiz experience and hardware design for the Galaxy S6 Edge, while also incorporating glass and metal into the standard Galaxy S6. As for the One M9, HTC stuck to its guns on the overall design, but threw in a 20MP rear-facing camera, updated Sense UI with custom themes, and the device still features HTC’s beloved BoomSound speakers. Needless to say, you can’t really go wrong with any choice.

So, which flagship are you ordering?
