Thanks to the launch of new custom-color cases, HTC is providing a flare of customization for One owners. The cases are Double Dip cases (which have been around since the phone first launched), and buyers can choose up to three different colors to add to the cases, out of six different color options. It is by no means as awesome as Motorola’s MotoMaker for Moto X buyers, but some color is better than no color, right? (more…)
With all of the focus on the 2014 flagships from HTC and Samsung, it’s about time we start thinking about the mid-range. In a recent interview, HTC officials said that they would be focusing on the low and mid-range markets, as this share is growing quite rapidly across the world. Thanks to a leak, we could have our first real look at the mid-range road HTC looks to go down in 2014, and from what we can see, it’s a very sexy road. (more…)
Rumors for both the HTC M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5 are at an all time high, so it’s time we ask where you all stand as of this very moment. From what we think we know, the Galaxy S5 will launch with either a 5.25″ QHD display or a 1080p display, but that’s if there aren’t actually two different variants of the device; one premium model and one less-premium model. The device is still rumored to feature a 16MP rear-facing camera, a quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and launch with Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat.
The HTC M8 is currently rumored to launch with a 5″ 1080p display, dual rear-facing cameras, a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and come out of the box running Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat. Luckily for HTC fans, reported pictures of the M8 have been popping up here and there of the device, while Samsung fans haven’t been as lucky.
So, if both phones were released tomorrow, which one would get your vote?
I don’t feel like the the purported HTC M8 (One follow-up) leaks are going to slow down any time soon. With Samsung preparing to announce the Galaxy S5 in weeks, HTC can’t be far behind with their next flagship. And with that, we get pictures like the one you are seeing below from @HTCFamily_RU. According to a Tweet sent along with this image, you are looking at an almost-crystal-clear image of the One’s successor. (more…)
HTC’s 6,000mAh Battery Bar is listed on Daily Steals today for a discounted price of $25. The unit retails in HTC’s store for $60 at the moment, so you are looking at a pretty substantial discount. With a 6,000mAh burst of juice, you are look at a couple of full charging cycles for a phone depending on your phone’s battery size.
As a staff, when we travel for events, we can’t live without external/portable chargers like these. You never know when you are going to be without an outlet for some time and these come in handy quite often. These are one of those accessories that I recommend to almost everyone. Keep one in your car, toss it in a bag when you travel, or have your female partner hold one in the bottom of her purse – you never know when you might need some juice. (more…)
It’s no secret around the industry that HTC’s profitability and market share have declined in recent years, thanks to a few unsuccessful launches and a public unwilling to completely adopt its hardware as much as Samsung’s. While speaking to Reuters ahead of HTC’s earnings guidance presentation, executives outlined a new two-tier approach that will place greater emphasis on low-cost devices and effective marketing.

Thanks to evleaks, we could be getting our first peak at what the M8 Mini from HTC could have in store for the masses. We have yet to officially see the M8, the successor to the One, as HTC still has not set a date for when it will unveil the new flagship. With Samsung’s Galaxy S5 coming within the next two weeks, HTC better act quick if they want to jump aboard the hypetrain.
According to evleaks, the M8 Mini will be a well-equipped device, even showing signs of a few pretty decent specs. For starters, the phone will reportedly be powered by a Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM, feature a 4.5″ 720p display, and come with Android 4.4.2 “Kit Kat” and Sense 6.0. (more…)
I’d imagine you remember the picture last week of the HTC One follow-up that showed an
awkwardly questionable interesting dual-camera setup? Well, we have new images of the HTC M8 with blurry-cam close-ups of those same cameras, the frontside of the phone, and the on-screen buttons. It looks a whole heck of a lot like the original One, so hopefully HTC has something magical in store to make this a bigger success. (more…)
