Aukey, one of the leaders and early adopters in Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology, has handed us a few coupon codes for extra discounts on some of their best selling products to share. They are currently handing out additional price drops on their 2-port QC 3.0 car charger, single port wall charger, and 2-port wall charger. With these new discounts, you can get into a QC 3.0 charger for as little as $12.99.
With Quick Charge 3.0, like with QC 2.0, you get excellent charging speeds that dramatically reduce the time you need to stay connected to a charger. Qualcomm’s Quick Charge technology really is one of those game-changing technologies because battery technology still hasn’t caught up to our non-stop, always-moving lives. We’ve talked ad nauseam, but it’s one of those newish techs worth investing in if you haven’t already.
At this time the LG G5 supports QC 3.0, but we are expecting the HTC 10 too as well.

HTC intends to officially unveil the HTC 10 tomorrow morning, but the Internet has unofficially beaten them to the punch. In a leaked unveiling video posted to YouTube, we get to see the HTC 10 from all angles, including the endless amounts of chamfer that surrounds the entire phone’s backside. To sum it up, this is likely the clip that will be played during tomorrow’s online unveiling for the phone. (more…)
HTC is scheduled to unveil the HTC 10 on April 12. That’s next week, Tuesday to be specific. Before that happens, though, here is yet another leaked photo of the device in White. With this image, we get a great close-up of the Sense 8 user interface we expect to see on the phone when launched, as well as a look at the fingerprint reader on the frontside. From what we can tell, it’s essentially the same reader that is built into the One A9, which is a solid reader. And yes, the capacitive buttons are there, too. (more…)
On April 3 of 2013, I went hands-on with the HTC First, also known as the Facebook Phone. For complete transparency, I wasn’t actually allowed to hold the phone because the software was still in development, but a very nice Facebook employee held it for me and took me on a hardware tour. Little did I know at the time, April 3 would also be the last I ever saw of the HTC First, as once it was announced, hardly a single soul, relative to the smartphone market as a whole, decided to purchase it.
Launched with a price of $99 on-contract, no one bought this thing, even with a few big tech sites giving it decently scoring reviews. Fast forward not even a month, when AT&T, the only carrier in the US to offer the phone, slashed the price to $0.99 on-contract. This was the first sign that literally no one wanted this thing.

HTC is back at it today, refueling the hypetrain for the HTC 10. Still scheduled to be unveiled on April 12, the latest teaser covers the company’s desire to deliver a high-end camera experience. As shown in the video, we should expect the UltraPixel camera to deliver optical image stabilization, as well as support for shooting high-res 4K video. (more…)
For today only, HTC is offering discounts on five of its devices, directly from its website. As listed, folks can grab a One M9 for $399 (any carrier, even the Developer model), One A9 for $389, Desire 626 for $149, or even get a Nexus 9 tablet for up to 40% off.
In addition to tablets and smartphones, HTC is also offering its RE Camera at 60% off, bringing the grand total for the hand-held shooter to $80. (more…)
We are still a few days away from HTC’s unveiling of the HTC 10, but since when has that ever stopped the Android community from getting their hands on the goodies? In the latest release of intel, a well known HTC leaker has published a gathering of wallpapers that will be included on the HTC 10. In my own personal opinion, they are way better than anything you will ever find on Samsung device, so here’s your chance to rock them before the phone is even announced. (more…)
Ahead of the April 12 announcement, HTC posted yet another teaser onto YouTube this week for the HTC 10, this time detailing what’s labeled as the “best BoomSound yet.” According to the video, HTC has been tweaking BoomSound, which should bring all of the joy associated with needle drops, live guitar solos, warm tubes amps, and face melting drum solos.
