Out of no-where, the HTC Desire 650 arrives

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 Desire 530 – Review

HTC have had a pretty tough time of it recently, and their range of handsets has definitely throttled back compared to years gone by. Remember the HTC Wildfire, ChaCha, Sensation, Rhyme and Butterfly ? The Desire series has outlasted all of them. If memory serves, we first saw …

HTC Desire 530 – Photo and video special

Right! We’ve got the HTC Desire 530. There wasn’t a huge launch at Barcelona for this particular one, just a press release and a couple on the stand. I think it’s safe to say that there wasn’t a huge crush around the display either. The Desire 530 handsets …

The HTC Desire 530, 630 and 825 at Mobile World Congress

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 as …

HTC Desire EYE review

HTC have been around for many years now. They’ve produced some really top end devices such as the HTC Sensation, HTC One X and even back to the HTC Desire which at the time was a specification powerhouse. The problem seems to be so many people still walk …

HTC announce the Desire 820

Remember our review of the HTC Desire 816? It was a lightweight phablet with a 5.5″ 720p screen, 1.6 GHz quad-core CPU and 8GB of on-board storage. We quite liked it. Here, then, is the pretty similar Desire 820. It looks the same on the outside and has …

HTC Desire 816 Review

This handset has a lot of the features I’ve seen on the HTC One M8. I mean sure, if you fire up the camera you won’t have the Zoe camera option, or the Pan 360 setting, or that rather clever “Dual capture” options, but you still get those …
