When the new HTC-made Nexus phones arrive at some point in the near future (maybe in early October), two sources suggest that we might see them sold directly through carriers, just like the Nexus 6 and Galaxy Nexus before them. Well, one carrier in particular has been mentioned twice – Verizon.
According to Evan Blass, Big Red plans to “carry the two ‘Nexus’ handsets.” And yes, Evan tossed in quotation marks around the word Nexus, which is probably a suggestion that we may not like the carrier tie-in. In other words, these will be Nexus devices, but there is a good chance they’ll have select bloat, potentially slower updates, etc. (more…)
The JBL Reflect Aware C earbuds, the ones that have been listed on HTC’s website since the launch of the HTC 10, are finally available for purchase. Available in both White and Black, the price is set at $199, made specifically for devices that feature a USB Type-C port. (more…)
The day is coming to a close and even though you are probably burned out on all of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 coverage, since it has fully dominated the past several hours, we wanted to toss out a specs comparison of Samsung’s latest flagship to the other top tier devices of the moment. After all, the phone arrives with a steeper than usual price and a set of specs that few can stand up with. But is all of this worth it when compared to say, the OnePlus 3 and its $400 price tag? Or is it better than the S7 Edge, which can be had for decent discounts these days? Or does it need a modular aspect like the G5 and Moto Z?
We’ll let you weigh in on that for now as we lead up to our full Galaxy Note 7 review. Let the battle begin. (more…)
Google hasn’t even come close to showing off the new Nexus phone(s) for 2016, but that hasn’t stopped a slow
trollout of leaks involving them. We’ve heard the specs, seen mock-up renders, and now have supposed wallpapers from the device that you can download. (more…)
Over the weekend, a supposed build.prop file from one of the upcoming HTC Nexus devices made its way online. This particular file is from the “sailfish” model, which is thought to be the smaller of the two new Google-created devices, and gives us details about the phone’s internals, like display, processor, etc. (more…)
Flashback to late 2009, early 2010. During that time, this whole Android thing was starting to really take off. Seemingly out of nowhere, Google introduced the HTC-made Nexus One. It was pure Android, featuring no third-party skin or anything of that nature. It was clean. The device even had an illuminated trackball. (more…)
With all of the Prime Day madness going on, it only makes sense for other companies to get in on the action. Beginning today through the end of the month, potential buyers can nab a HTC 10 for $100 off, bringing the price down from $699 to $599.
On top of the new phone you will receive, HTC appears to be throwing in $100 of credit towards HTC accessories. The credit is not limited to buyers from htc.com, though. According to HTC, if you can provide proof-of-purchase from any other retailer or channel, you can receive it. This credit can be spent of cases, extra chargers, or anything else they have listed on the HTC site as a phone accessory. Do note, this does exclude Vive accessories. (more…)
The Snapdragon 821 is now official and ready for the next wave of next-generation mobile devices. Think devices like the Galaxy Note 7 and the two HTC Nexus (“marlin” and “sailfish“) phones we expect to be introduced within the next month. (more…)
