HTC still in turmoil: Lead designer out after just one year on the job

It’s never a good sign to see a major executive shakeup at a company just after it makes a major product launch — see Windows 8 architect Steven Sinofsky’s abrupt departure from Microsoft after Windows 8 launched, for instance. This is now the case with HTC, which last week announced that CEO Peter Chou would be replaced by chairman Cher Wang less than a month after the company unveiled its flagship HTC One M9 phone. And now Engadget brings us word of another key departure: Jonah Becker, HTC’s VP of Industrial Design, who leaves the company after just a year working as its lead designer. More →

Fantastic GIF shows how Samsung’s Galaxy S phones have moved far beyond mere iPhone clones

Fantastic GIF shows how Samsung’s Galaxy S phones have moved far beyond mere iPhone clones

Apple fans love to slag off Samsung’s flagship phones as mere iPhone clones but the truth is the devices have evolved quite a bit over the years and now have their own distinct looks. Sure, the Galaxy S6 does borrow some design elements from the iPhone 6, particularly along the edges and the bottom of the device, but it’s still very easy to tell which phone is which. For our money, the Samsung phone that was the most iPhone-like was the Galaxy S II, which just also happened to be the phone that Apple was most successful in using to portray Samsung as a shameless Apple copycat.

Others, however, were complete and total bombs incapable of killing nothing except their manufacturer’s bottom lines. Below, we list the 5 worst would-be iPhone “killers” ever. More →

However, this was just our early impressions after using the phone for one day and didn’t involve any actual testing to measure brightness or color accuracy. Thankfully for us, Anandtech has done a lot of this work and has confirmed our hunch: Namely, that the Galaxy S6’s display is a thing of wonder. More →
