Just a quick heads-up, but if you were planning to pre-order the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, or HTC One M9 from Verizon tomorrow (April 1), know that the listings will go live at 3AM ET (12:00AM PDT). In other words, east coasters, you won’t be able to buy these phones right at midnight, you will instead have to wait a couple of hours. As for you west coasters, well, you do get to click “buy” at midnight. (more…)
According to HTC’s Mo Versi, the One M7 on AT&T should see its Lollipop as early as today. In a Tweet sent yesterday afternoon, Versi noted that they had received “technical approval” on the update and that it would start March 31.
We are still waiting for AT&T to post details of the update, but once that happens, we will update this post.
Let us know if you see it! (more…)
Having been leaked over the course of the past couple of weeks, the One E9+ from HTC is now official for overseas markets.

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…)
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…)
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…)
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?
Hey, Verizon is awake today. Moments ago, they announced that the HTC One M9 will be available for pre-order on April 1, with in-store availability kicking off April 10. If that sounds odd, it’s because everyone else on the planet opens pre-orders tomorrow, March 27. This news shouldn’t shock you, though, as they are doing the same thing with the Galaxy S6.
The device will cost $199 with a new 2-year agreement or $24.99 per month for 24 months on Verizon Edge. Big Red will sell both the Gold on Silver and Metal Gray models with 32GB of storage. (more…)
