Not even HTC can tell the difference between the One M9 and M8

Not even HTC can tell the difference between the One M9 and M8

The HTC One M9 is one of the best Android phones you can buy right now, just like its predecessors. But unlike in previous years, HTC has the misfortune of fighting against completely new iPhone and Galaxy S designs while the HTC One M9 looks too much like last year’s HTC One M8.

In fact, last year’s model and this year’s M9 are so similar that not even HTC’s social networking team can tell them apart. More →

HTC One M9 Battery Life

Battery life might be a big problem for the HTC One M9

Battery life might be a big problem for the HTC One M9

As good looking the HTC One M9 might be, the handset has received some criticism from some Android fans who expected HTC to do more than just refine and polish the HTC One M8’s design. It also didn’t help that, for the first time ever, Samsung actually came out with a Galaxy S model that touts a beautiful design and premium materials to match its powerful components.

However, in addition to a phone’s looks there are many other factors that might influence a buyer’s decision, and it looks like the HTC One M9 might have problems in this area as well. More →

2014’s sleekest Android phone finally starts getting Lollipop

It might not have been the best-selling Android phone of 2014, but there’s little room to argue that the HTC One M8 isn’t the best-looking Android phone of 2014.

Android 5.0 Lollipop update details just arrived for three more hot Android phones

Just a few days ago, Samsung and HTC updated two of their hot Android devices to Android 5.0, at least in some regions of the world. Both handset makers are now back with more Lollipop news for some of their best-selling phones, though it’s not necessarily good news. TechTastic reports that the Galaxy S4 is now receiving its Lollipop build, though only users in certain markets will see update prompts at this time. As for certain versions of the HTC One M8 and One M7, HTC’s 2014 and 2013 flagship handsets, the company said the update has been slightly delayed, missing the expected 90-day update window. More →

Video: This is what Lollipop looks like on the world’s sleekest Android phone

It might not be the newest Android phone in the world, and it might not be the most powerful. It also isn’t the fastest phone on the planet, and it doesn’t have the highest-resolution display either. There is little question that the HTC One (M8) is the sleekest phone the world has ever seen though, and it’s also the most solid and well-built.

While we all wait to see what HTC has in store for us in 2015, owners of the company’s 2014 flagship phone still have plenty to look forward to thanks to Google’s major Android 5.0 Lollipop update, which will soon be available for the One (M8). Thanks to a new leak, however, we can see what Lollipop looks like on the M8 right now. More →

Report claims to reveal when the HTC’s One M8 and M7 will get Lollipop

Even though HTC already announced a rather fast Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the HTC One (M8) and HTC One (M7) flagship handsets, only the Google Play edition versions have received it yet. HTC already confirmed that the regular, unlocked and carrier-branded, HTC One versions should get Lollipop no later than 90 days following the official Android 5.0 release, and it looks like TechTastic has learned more details about the actual rollout.

Here are the next two phones set to receive Android Lollipop updates

HTC on Thursday announced that its 2013 and 2014 flagship devices will be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop starting on December 5th (around noon), but there’s a huge catch for getting your HTC One (M7) or HTC One (M8) upgraded to Google’s latest Android operating system: You must own a Google Play Edition (GPE) device in order to be eligible for the upgrade.

Video: Flagship Android phones can’t touch iPhone 6 in this speed test

Even though many smartphone enthusiasts were quick to scoff at the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for their seemingly substandard specs, reviews and benchmark tests revealed that the new iPhones, with their dual-core A8 chips and 1GB of RAM, can easily beat high-end Android devices that pack fast quad-core CPUs and 2GB to 3GB of RAM when it comes to performance. To further test the speed of the iPhone 6 and compare it with the current top offerings from HTC and Samsung, including the HTC One (M8) and the Galaxy S5, Phone Buff has put all three devices through the same speed test, recording their performance in the process.

Great news: You won’t have to worry about the iPhone 6 bending like the 6 Plus

When reports of the iPhone 6 Plus warping under pressure began to spread earlier this week, many users became concerned about the durability of their brand new devices. Once Lewis Hilsenteger of Unbox Therapy released a video of himself bending the iPhone 6 Plus with his bare hands, #BendGate (or as we prefer to called it, “Bent-gazi”) started trending all over social media.
