HTC 10 evo announced

A brand new waterproof phone without a 3.5mm headset? No, it’s not that one. This is a new handset from HTC, although I should call it new-ish because it has already been on sale in the USA as the HTC Bolt exclusively on Sprint. The phone arrives with …

HTC Bolt pictured. Specs leaked

HTC have got a lot of ground to make up. They’ve got less cash coming in and have recently launched a brand new handset with no NFC in it. Now there’s another mid-range device coming, this time with a 5.5″ screen. It’s the Bolt, known internally as the …

Lessening cash flows for continued HTC woes

HTC discounts the HTC 10 in red… and every other colour

HTC were responsible for kick-starting this site way, way back in 2002. They were just a manufacturer then, with Orange or other networks sticking their branding on. Back then nobody knew who they were. Then they fought. They pushed on and built a brand. Soon everyone had a …

Confirmed – The UK gets no NFC in the HTC Desire 10

I’ve started to develop a bit of a habit now – leaving the house without my wallet. At work the canteen and the vending machines all use contactless payments. When I get fuel – call it Apple Pay, call it Android Pay – the petrol station, the supermarket, …

HTC Desire 10 lined up for launch on Tuesday

What are you doing on Tuesday morning? Well, we’re going to be at a swanky launch party in the West End of London. We’ll be eating canapés, drinking free champagne, meeting the….. ..wait. Ah no. It’s another one of those “web” launches from HTC. Gah.. what happen to …

HTC One A9s announced at IFA – A tweaked, lower priced A9.

We liked the HTC One A9 and gave it a glowing review. However, one thing I did point out at the time was the cost of the thing. My closing comments were… HTC are back. Just a shame about the price for the spec we’re getting in Europe …

It’s coming to that time of the year when the rumour mills start spinning for this year’s Nexus phone lineup. After having gone through the emotional roller-coaster for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, and still going through it for the next iPhone, it’s the chance for the Nexus …

Another day, Another Android Vulnerability

These types of news stories are starting to become a regular feature. In short, someone finds a vulnerability in the Android Operating System which happens to affect every single phone – IN THEORY! No different to all the vulnerabilities that could destroy Microsoft Windows OS! Anyhow, this time, …

HTC Vive goes up in price following Brexit

Another bit of tech increasing in price due to the devalued UK currency is the HTC Vive. It follows news last month that OnePlus were to do the same thing and a post on the HTC website reads.. HTC continuously monitors and adjusts pricing to ensure we are …

HTC 10 – Review

I write this shortly after reviewing the Huawei P9 and, I have to say, the first thing I noticed is how much heavier the HTC 10 is. The P9 is 144g and the HTC 10 is 161g. It might not sound much, but boy – I noticed it …

HTC announces first quarter loss

I’ve got a HTC 10 in my hands right now and, I must say, it’s a strong bit of kit. Whether this phone knows just how much is riding on it is another question though, as the HTC figures (released today) put a lot of emphasis on this …

Is HTC finally about to release a smartwatch?

This has got to be one of the longest-running rumours of the tech world. The first suggestions that HTC were working on some sort of smart wearable surfaced back in 2014, when a picture of this appeared online: Even by 2014 standards it wasn’t the most glamorous of …

It’s the random next Nexus maker guessing game

Wow. That’s a headline isn’t it. As I sit back and re-read it, it almost hurts my head. Anyhow, rumour has it (#Adele) that HTC will be making a couple of Nexus handsets which are currently known as the M1 and S1. They’ll run Google N. The rumour …
