HTC One A9 adverts start, and they’re quite good actually.

You’ve read the HTC One A9 review we posted last week and now HTC are cranking up the advertising machine for their shiny, skinny handset. Gone are those … ermm… “interesting” Robert Downey Jr adverts and now we’ve got something very different indeed. Here’s the ad, and

HTC One A9 – Review

A bit of history first, and perhaps a personal viewpoint from myself. Back in 2002 I handled my first HTC smartphone. It was branded up as an Orange SPV and it kick-started this entire website. HTC had a meteoric rise in the years following, releasing phones under

HTC to launch the first Marshmallow device

HTC Desire 626 – Review

Think HTC and you’ll invariably think of the HTC One handsets. They’re beautiful. They’re well-built and they’re feature-rich. However, they’re also pretty expensive, so what about those who want a taste of HTC but don’t quite have the cash? The Desire 626 is a device I’ve had

HTC drops off Taiwan stock index

Despite efforts to reshape and refocus, HTC has today fallen from the bottom of the TWSE 50 Index, which lists Taiwan’s 50 largest firms. The fact that this has happened could further damage the HTC share price, which has taken a beating recently following a big drop

HTC Add Wi-Fi Calling to HTC One M9 on EE

Dear HTC. I want something like this I can design myself.

So HTC sent us a press release. We’d perhaps like one of their new phones, but we can’t get that. Anyhow. They sent us pictures of a model called Jourdan Dunn. We’re not sure who she is, and we’re totally against sexist imagery of ladies advertising phones.
