Watch: Good luck figuring out what’s going on in these 10 new HTC One M9 promos

HTC and Robert Downey Jr. have something of a history together, and so far it has yielded a series of bizarre device advertisements that do precious little to actually… advertise devices. Instead, the company’s RDJ campaign has been a brand awareness effort of sorts, however successful or unsuccessful it might be at this point.

As weird as the ads have been so far, though, you’ve never seen anything quite like the 10 new promo videos HTC and Robert Downey Jr. just released for the HTC One M9.

At least, we think they’re meant to promote the HTC One M9. You be the judge. More →

HTC UH OH

HTC just announced an industry-leading new device protection plan for the HTC One M9

HTC just announced an industry-leading new device protection plan for the HTC One M9

HTC has had a program in place for some time that provided its customers with one free device replacement in the event of a cracked screen within the first 12 months, but now the company has upped the ante and introduced an even better program.

Dubbed “UH OH” (ugh) and set to launch alongside the new HTC One M9 in the coming weeks, the program provides users with one free replacement M9 in the event that they crack a screen, drop the phone in water or even switch carriers within the first 12 months of purchase. 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 →

HTC One M9 Release Date and Price

The HTC One M9 finally has a release date – but not in the U.S.

The HTC One M9 finally has a release date – but not in the U.S.

The HTC One M9 is by far one of the best Android phones of the year, even if HTC may have lost the battle with Samsung at MWC 2015, at least when it comes to the attention received by their latest mobile devices during the show. Samsung’s Galaxy S6 models, and especially the S6 edge, surprised the audience, being completely new designs, while the HTC One M9 is more of a refinement of last year’s top HTC phone.

Even so, the HTC One M9 will certainly impress many potential buyers, and the phone already has a release date and pricing details for Taiwan. More interestingly, ePrice reports the phone will be available in two distinct versions, when it comes to storage. More →

HTC One E9 Specs Release Date

Forget the One M9: This is the HTC phone we wanted

Forget the One M9: This is the HTC phone we wanted

The HTC One M9 is a great looking phone with some notable improvements over its predecessor, but there’s no denying that it was overshadowed by the radical redesign of the Galaxy S6 at MWC 2015. Rather than push the envelope, HTC is sticking with what worked last year for its latest flagship… but who’s to say that’s the only phone HTC is preparing for the spring? More →

HTC One M9 Release Date

Major leak may have just revealed HTC One M9’s price and release date

Major leak may have just revealed HTC One M9’s price and release date

Apple wasn’t the first company in the world to launch a new flagship product on an annual basis, but the company certainly popularized the tradition among smartphone makers. The Cupertino-based company introduces one or more new iPhone models each year, and they go on sale soon after in place of the last year’s phones.

Several other companies have followed Apple’s lead, and now it appears as though HTC may have taken this custom to a level that not even Apple has achieved at this point. More →

Huge leak: Unreleased ‘HTC One M9 Plus’ pictured for the first time

HTC just announced its sleek new HTC One M9 flagship smartphone earlier this week, but the rumor mill has already moved on to bigger and better things. The new M9 features a design that is similar to last year’s HTC One M8 smartphone, but the internals have been upgraded and several key pain points have been addressed. Most importantly, the rear UltraPixel camera has been replaced with a much more capable 20-megapixel unit.

As nice as the new M9 looks, however, an even newer flagship smartphone from HTC has just been pictured for the first time. More →

HTC One M9 Vs. One M8

HTC’s design chief explains why the One M9 isn’t just a One M8 clone

HTC’s design chief explains why the One M9 isn’t just a One M8 clone

Over the past week some Android fans have expressed disappointment that HTC’s new One M9 flagship phone looks so similar to the One M8 that it released a year ago. Even though the One M8 won major acclaim for its gorgeous design, some fans were apparently craving something fresh, especially since Samsung boldly redesigned its flagship Galaxy S lineup with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. The Verge has posted a video interview with HTC industrial design chief Claude Zellweger, who says we should really be paying more attention to some of the smaller details on the One M9 that really set it apart from the One M8.

HTC Vive hands-on: HTC dives headfirst into virtual reality

HTC had a surprising announcement at the end of its HTC One M9 Utopia media event on Sunday, a “one more thing” moment of its own in which it announced a product that nobody saw coming: the HTC Vive virtual reality headset developed in cooperation with Valve. The device is as real as it gets, but it’s not ready for primetime, and all I could do was look at it while at HTC’s booth at MWC and wonder what it’ll have to offer. More →

We all knew that we would see the HTC One M9 this weekend, but we had no idea it would be the least exciting product announced at the company’s MWC 2015 press conference.

That’s not to say that the One M9 isn’t an impressive device — although, for all intents and purposes, it’s a remaster of last year’s One M8, there’s no denying that it’s still one of the best Android devices on the market… but the Grip and the Vive are what really kept us hooked. More →
