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 →
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 might not be ready to release the HTC One M9 in any market, including its home country, but you can still experience what owning the handset should feel like. The company published several new HTC One M9 videos on its official YouTube channel, offering fans a first look at the device, as well as focusing on several of the phone’s new features. More →
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 →
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 →
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.
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.
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 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 →
Sunday was easily one of the biggest days of 2015 for smartphone fans around the world, who watched along as three of the most impressive phones that have ever been created were unveiled at the annual Mobile World Congress trade show.

Now that all three of these great new Android phones are official, it’s time to run through a quick comparison and find out how they stack up against each other. More →
