iPhone 6 Plus Vs Galaxy Note 4

Here are all the Android phones you should buy instead of the iPhone 6

Here are all the Android phones you should buy instead of the iPhone 6

Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have their fair share of critics, with one going as far as to call one of the new iPhone’s design features “appalling,” but there’s no question these phones are on their way to becoming the most popular handsets in the world. Apple already announced that the new iPhones combined to set an overnight record for preorders, and we’ll likely be reaching about a new sales record this time next week.

But the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus aren’t for everyone, and for smartphone users who don’t enjoy Apple devices, there are thankfully plenty of great smartphones to choose from. More →

Is the world’s best Android phone about to become the world’s best Windows Phone too?

The HTC One (M8) is definitely a top contender for the title of being 2014’s best Android phone and now it might become 2014’s best Windows Phone as well. Tom Warren’s sources claim that HTC is planning to make a Windows Phone version of the One (M8) that will supposedly release later this year.  More →

HTC One (M8) sales reportedly slowing

HTC finally managed to turn things around in the second quarter as its cost-cutting efforts managed to yield a slight unaudited profit of $75 million. Revenue continued to slide despite supposedly solid sales of the company’s flagship HTC One (M8) smartphone, however, and things could get even worse moving forward. According to new claims, sales of HTC’s latest hero phone are already slowing down. More →

HTC One M7 M8 Android L

HTC: Both the One (M7) and One (M8) are getting Android L

HTC: Both the One (M7) and One (M8) are getting Android L

Awesome news for everyone who owns one of HTC’s last two flagship phones: You’ll be getting the latest version of Android… at some point. HTC announced on Wednesday that it will bring Android L to both the HTC One (M7) and the HTC One (M8) “within 90 days of receiving final software from Google.” It’s not surprising that the One (M8) is getting Android L since it just came out earlier this year but it’s good to see that HTC is committed to bringing Android L to anyone who bought its 2013 flagship smartphone as well.

Amazon Fire Phone Vs. HTC One M8

The Fire Phone looks set to burn HTC at the worst possible time

The Fire Phone looks set to burn HTC at the worst possible time

It’s no surprise that the $200 Amazon Fire Phone is now the No. 1 on-contract phone at Amazon.com, outselling all Samsung models one month before its official launch. But it’s a bit of a shocker that the $300 Fire Phone model with 64GB of memory is the No. 2 phone. American consumers have started showing signs of becoming increasingly unwilling to pay more than $200 for even the latest smartphones, but loyal Amazon customers may be so attracted to the brand that they are willing to pay up for the pricier version of its flagship phone.

Not even the world’s best Android phone could save HTC in May

Not even the world’s best Android phone could save HTC in May

HTC has faced many setbacks, disasters and bitter disappointments since its handset unit performance started missing projections around Christmas 2011. But May 2014 might have been the most devastating blow yet. That is because HTC had supposedly reacted to miserable sales declines in 2012 and 2013 by revamping its handset design and marketing strategies. Both the product and how it is sold were changed to finally staunch the bleeding by spring of 2014.

Yet despite the new product and branding initiatives, May 2014 turns out to be a chilling omen of a summer of horror for the besieged Taiwanese vendor. More →

Leaked pic shows 2014’s best Android phone in blue

Let’s say that you want to buy an HTC One (M8) but you aren’t too keen on the device’s standard silver or grey — well, it looks like you’re going to get another option. @evleaks has just posted a press render of a blue version of HTC’s latest flagship smartphone and as you can see, the device looks pretty sweet with an aqua blue tint.We have no idea when the blue version of the HTC One (M8) will release but @evleaks doesn’t typically acquire press renders unless a device’s launch is imminent, which suggests HTC will release it sooner rather than later.

HTC One M8 Harman Kardon Edition Review

Does the HTC One (M8) Harman Kardon edition really sound that much better than the original?

Does the HTC One (M8) Harman Kardon edition really sound that much better than the original?

The HTC One (M8) is a great phone. In fact, we recently called it the best Android phone in the world. While the design is the most obvious plus for the M8, HTC’s new and improved front-facing BoomSound speakers mark another area where HTC’s flagship phone shames rival handsets. As good as BoomSound is on the M8, however, Sprint’s special Harman Kardon edition promises sound that is somehow even better. Does it deliver? Sprint sent us one a couple of weeks ago so we could find out for ourselves. More →

This is the only way to recognize your fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. employees on the street

After employing the chief of Gotham’s finest and Iron Man himself to promote the new HTC One (M8) – though they were not in character in those commercials – HTC is ready to use an actual hero to promote the handset — at least by association. The Taiwanese handset maker will offer a few lucky winners a limited edition S.H.I.E.L.D. HTC One (M8) phone that has a S.H.I.E.L.D. logo on the back and identifying number. More →
