Got a HTC One M8 mate? You could be getting Marshmallow soon

We’re hearing on the grapevine (or, rather, via you lot on our contact page), that the HTC One M8 is starting to get some hot Marshmallow action right now. Not only that, but we’ve also got unconfirmed reports that the newer HTC One M9 is receiving the Android …

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. It’s …

HTC One ME announced in China

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 fairly …

Dear HTC America. What the heck is this?

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 commercials …

HTC One M9 Review

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 a …

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. The …

A week with the HTC One M9. Day four. The camera tech.

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 capture …

A week with the HTC One M9. Day three. A look around.

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 we …

A week with the HTC One M9. Day two. Sounds good huh?

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 on …

More HTC One M9 Plus images leaked.

  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 viewing …

HTC One M9 on sale via giffgaff tonight. Cheaper than competitors

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 of …

MWC – giffgaff to range the HTC One M9 too

Some hours ago, or possibly days (I’m not totally sure as Mobile World Congress week is always pretty insane at the best of time), we mentioned that giffgaff are to offer the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Now they’ve announced that the HTC One M9 will be …

MWC – HTC One M8 to become the HTC One M8s

If I’m honest it’s difficult to know exactly where to start with this one. I mean, the HTC One M8 is still a fantastic handset, regardless of the HTC One M9. However, just a couple of days after the HTC One M9 launch, there’s news via tweakers.net that …
