HTC’s Prime phablet is not as dead as you might think

HTC has been rumored for a while to be working on an HTC One (M8) Prime that would take on the Galaxy S5 Prime and the LG G3, but then @evleaks revealed in late May that plans to launch the phone has been put on hold. Even so, that doesn’t mean HTC’s plans for a flagship phablet are dead, as the same source has now learned that a Prime device will be launched in the future, but not this year. More →

HTC may have finally come up with a clever way to market its phones

HTC’s marketing for its phones has been… well, the less said about it the better. That said, a new report from Evleaks indicates that HTC may have finally found a clever hook to sell its new smartphones and it thankfully doesn’t involve the Hipster Troll Carwash. According to Evleaks, HTC is working on a new phone called the HTC Eye that will release in the fourth quarter this year on AT&T and will be billed as a phone that’s designed to take “the ultimate selfie.” More →

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 →

New leak suggests an even better version of the HTC One (M8) is coming soon

Is HTC following Samsung and getting into the gadget spam game? It certainly seems that way because the company is reportedly planning to release several variants of its HTC One (M8). Unnamed sources tell 9to5Google that HTC has two new variants of the One (M8) coming down the pipe in the near future known as the HTC One (M8) Plus and the HTC One (M8) Advance. More →

HTC One mini 2 review

Most of the excitement in the global smartphone market is found at the high end, where premium handsets packed to the gills with cutting-edge technology battle for consumers’ attention in developed markets. As we have now established, however, that’s not where smartphone sales growth is currently coming from.

Apple sells more and more iPhones each year and yet its global smartphone market share continues to sink. Why is that? Because despite how huge Apple’s iPhone sales figures are, they’re not growing anywhere near as fast as combined sales of entry-level and mid-range phones.

This is where growth is coming from and if HTC hopes to someday return to its former glory, it had better be prepared to battle in these cutthroat market segments.

At the low end, we have no idea if or when HTC plans to compete with next-generation handsets. In the mid-range though, HTC recently announced its new HTC One mini 2. More →

Is this the plastic version of the best Android phone in the world?

Is this the plastic version of the best Android phone in the world?

The HTC One (M8) Ace is supposed to be HTC’s plastic version of the HTC One (M8), one of the best Android phones available in stores right now, although the company has yet to officially unveil it. Recent reports claimed that the Ace will pack M8-grade specs in a plastic body and will retail for a more affordable price, as HTC continues looking to offer smartphone buyers a better competitor to the Galaxy S5. However, not many images showing the alleged device have been leaked so far, with @evleaks having shared a blurry image of the front side of the handset back in early April. More →

HTC One M8 Prime Specs

You’ll never guess the ‘exotic material’ that HTC may use for its new flagship phablet

You’ll never guess the ‘exotic material’ that HTC may use for its new flagship phablet

As great as the HTC One (M8) is, it looks like the best is still yet to come from HTC. The reliable @evleaks claims that HTC’s upcoming One (M8) Prime flagship phablet will be “made out of an exotic material, a composite of aluminum and liquid silicone,” which Alpha Materials, Inc. informs us is almost as light as aluminum but is also significantly stronger. So from the sound of it, it looks as though HTC’s next major release will be even more durable than its current lineup of high-end smartphones. More →

HTC One Mini 2 Release Date

Hands on: HTC unveils the all new HTC One mini 2

Hands on: HTC unveils the all new HTC One mini 2

The comeback trail is long, winding and almost entirely uphill. It is not impossible to trek — just ask Apple, which battled back from the brink of bankruptcy to become the most valuable technology company on the planet. It certainly isn’t an easy hike though, and it takes determination, smart marketing and great products. The HTC One (M8) is certainly a solid start, but it will take much more than one Android phone to put HTC back on the right path… even if it is the best Android phone in the world.

So on Thursday, HTC announced its second new hero phone of 2014: The HTC One mini 2. More →
