For the past couple of years, HTC has made Gold variants of its flagship device, usually for some special occasion. Apparently, 2015 is no exception, as the company revealed on its Twitter account a new 24ct. Gold One M9, celebrating the UCL Final in Europe. That’s soccer, just in case you did not know. (more…)
Each year for the past two years, HTC has released a Mini variant of its One flagship device. This year, that tradition dies, as HTC has no intentions to release a Mini version of the One M9, or ever again for that matter. As stated by Jack Tong, president of HTC North Asia, the industry is moving towards larger display devices, and the company’s roadmap is complimenting that change, according to Tong. (more…)
At the end of our HTC One M9 review, we told you to skip the phone and instead opt for last year’s HTC One M8 should you really love the all-metal design and style of HTC’s products. The One M8 is a better phone. It looks better. It has a better camera, even if it is a bit of a gimmick. It has a better display. It’s battery life is somehow, confusingly better. And best of all, it’s waaaaaaay cheaper.
Take today’s deal for example, where you can buy a brand new HTC One M8 for AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint at just $299 through Best Buy. That’s $299 for a phone at full retail, without a contract or payment plan. You pay $299 and then walk away with a phone that you own.
The deal includes “limited quantities” and is only available today, so be quick if interested.
Verizon’s HTC One M7 is getting its Android 5.0 Lollipop update today, at least according to a full changelog posted to the company’s support site. The update arrives in two parts, but finishes on 6.21.605.3 when all is said and done.
After the update, users will see Lollipop’s fun, including new notification panel behaviors, an all-new quick settings pull-down, notifications on the lock screen, more control over which apps can send you notifications, new Rolodex-styled recent apps, more power with Android Beam, and more. HTC also tossed their HTC EYE experience into the camera. (more…)
