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.

HTC Pushes Launch of Grip Fitness Tracker to Early Next Year

Yes, it looks like an iPhone, but regardless of what it looks like, it’s a solid little mid-range device priced at just $399. Why not give it a chance?  (more…)

Sorry, HTC, I’m Not Buying Your One A9 Message

HTC wants you to think they are doing “Something special, something different” with their new One A9. Sorry, I’m just not buying any of it. Call me an HTC hater (which I know many of you will), but this is just another Android phone no one will care about or remember in a couple of weeks. Well, you may remember it, just not because of what it can or can’t do. You will remember this phone because of its appearance and the non-stop cracks we will all make about its resemblance to the most popular phone on the planet.  (more…)
