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.
This puppy looks to be a plastic version of the One M9+ for the Chinese market. It’s got the same measurements of the M9+ (150.99 x 71.99 x 9.75 mm) but is obviously lighter (at 155 grams) due to the fantastic plastic construction. The specs also remain
There’s a possibility, according to Digitimes, that HTC are about to cut their orders for components used in the new HTC One M9. Orders are being reduced by up to 30% “due to lower-than-expected sales for the model”, but HTC have not confirmed this. According to “sources”,
Now, I’m not going to attack American TV adverts here. They’re weird, yes, but have you seen some of the daytime TV adverts here in the UK? They’re utterly bonkers. If you’ve been lucky enough to travel to the USA and you’ve seen some of the TV

Mobile World Congress is where most flagship devices get announced every year, and 2015 was no different. This year HTC arrived with an upgrade to their popular M8 phone which hopefully filled in the few missing pieces to make this the best phone they ever made. First of all
Getting your phone setup is quite easy nowadays. If you’ve previously had a Google device, you just stick in your account details and all your apps, email and calendar appointments will appear. Your contacts will too, and your phone is setup in just a couple of minutes.
A lot was said about the quality of the new 20 megapixel rear shooter. There’s a raft of options including the ability to adjust the ISO, EV and white balance settings. Not only that, but if you dive into the camera settings further there’s a stack of
HTC tell me that their new model has a “dual-tone” design. It’s not immediately obvious when you put it next to the M8, and you can see just that in our MWC gallery, but there is a subtle difference in the edging and the colouring. Yet again
I’ve been banging on about this in tweets and posts for some time now, but the BoomSound system on the HTC One M9 is something that I appreciate. Despite the proliferation of Bluetooth speakers and headsets you’ll still find me listening to tunes via the external speaker
This, my friends, is a Jaguar XF. It’s a great car. Below is the facelifted Jaguar XF. It looks roughly the same, but the headlight assembly alone means that you can tell the difference between new and old. It’s not a massive change, but the older design
Seen our hands-on with the HTC One M9? If not, the video is below. About a month ago Vodafone started pre-orders and now it’s available to buy on the network. A quick note though, if you did pre-order, you’ll be able to redeem one of 1000 pairs
I bet you can remember the above phone right? Last years HTC One M8 right? Wrong it’s the recently unveiled One M8s. Although to give you your due, it is the same phone, just a bit slower. It is best summed up by Peter Frølund the UK and
Independent phone retailer Carphone Warehouse, has been taking pre orders for the HTC M9 for some time now, but today the retailer has announced that you’ll be able to get your hands on the device now. The latest flagship from HTC is listed on contracts that start from

HTC has sent out invites in which it clearly teased a new HTC One M9 variant with the One M8 Duo camera set up. Tie this in with the leaked images from the normally spot on @Upleaks on twitter, and could this be the rumoured HTC M9+? From
This is a handset which has received a fair amount of criticism because it doesn’t look hugely different to the previous One M8. Almost a year ago Scott Croyle, chief of design, left HTC and now Industrial Design Lead, Jonah Becker, has left. However, I know plenty
HTC and their management structure attract a bit of attention, be it marketing managers leaving, various Execs leaving and starting new companies, Cher Wang being handed more responsibilities or Peter Chou threatening to stand down as CEO if the latest flagship doesn’t prove to be a success.
During MWC HTC showed off the new One M9 and the new Dot View cases. The new cases brought with the ability to customise the dots on the case, to add more apps to show notifications and also to add live themes. Oh and play some games
