Is HTC about to finally deliver the killer smartphone camera its fans deserve?

The HTC One (M8) is one of the best smartphones we’ve reviewed this year but there was one thing about it we found particularly disappointing — namely, the quality of its camera, which can’t hold a candle to the cameras on rival flagship devices such as the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S5. However, a new report from Android Police claims that HTC is about to fix that with a new smartphone set to be unveiled next month that will feature a 13-megapixel Duo Camera. More →

Amazon could have released an awesome smartphone… but then AT&T got involved

Amazon’s Fire Phone is hands down the biggest bomb of 2014 and it turns out we have AT&T to thank for it. The Information reports that Amazon and HTC started collaborating on a budget smartphone last fall but that AT&T stepped in to kill the device by saying it wouldn’t support Amazon’s higher-end Fire Phone if it didn’t get an exclusive on the budget phone as well.

HTC may have just saved itself from making a huge mistake

Fools rush in where wise men fear to tread… and in this case, HTC may wind up looking very wise indeed. Pocket Lint’s sources say that HTC has for now scrapped its plans to release a smartwatch, likely because the company decided that the device simply wouldn’t have sold well and thus would have been a waste of company resources.

HTC unveils the Desire 820, a mid-range phone with the world’s best ‘selfie camera’

Just because a phone is midrange, that doesn’t mean it should be devoid of at least some high-end specifications. In the case of the new HTC Desire 820 that HTC unveiled on Thursday, that high-end specification just happens to be its 8-megapixel front-facing camera, which gives it the best “selfie camera” of any other phone on the market. For comparison’s sake, consider that even Samsung’s beastly Galaxy Note 4 can only boast a 3.7-megapixel front-facing camera. More →

HTC One (M8) for Windows hands-on preview: Windows Phone finally has a contender

When HTC launched the One (M8) earlier this year, we called it the best Android phone the world has ever seen.
