HTC One mini 2 Review

You might be confused already. A phone with two numbers in the title – one written as a word, one as a digit? It’s basically the shrunken-down version of the HTC One M8 which I spent a week with very recently, but of course you’re going to

HTC D616W, complete with octacore CPU, snapped

The jury is out on whether this is an “octacore” or “octocore”. Let’s just call it an 8-core phone because my spell check says they’re both wrong. This is the catchily-titled HTC D616W and, if I’m honest, it looks a lot like the HTC 816. The spec,

HTC One vs HTC One

We’ve been at the launch event today and have already detailed all the HTC One features and the specifications you should expect. The new device is now in shops and available to buy, but how does it compare to the older version? Both phones go under the

EE offer fantastic HTC One (M8) deal

HTC have just announced the new HTC One just a few minutes ago. Yes, the NEW HTC One, which has often gone by the name “M8″. The official name is the HTC One (M8). Now we’re getting details from the UK’s largest 4G network – EE. They’ve

HTC One (M8) – The official specs

We’ve already covered the finer details of the HTC One (M8) so here’s those specifications you’ve been looking for. The device, if we’re honest, looks a lot like the original HTC One, but there’s more power. It’s taller too. The original was 137.4 x 68.2 x 9.3mm,

HTC SenseTV appears on the Google Play store

Another app which looks set to arrive on the all new HTC One is this,  HTC SenseTV. It’s an update on the existing built-in infrared remote that can control your TV, set-top box and other kit. The new version has had a lick of paint and a

Further HTC apps confirm HTC One (M8) Google Play Edition

Hello, hello. What’s this I spy in the description of the recently-updated HTC Gallery app? Why, unless I’m very much mistaken that clearly says.. Support for HTC One (M8) Google Play Edition is limited to HTC Photo Edit. This alone confirms that yes, we will be seeing

HTC Sense 6.0 video demo

How long has it been since the last HTC One (2014) leak? A day or two? Well, it’s time for a look at the all-new HTC GUI that should be on board – Sense 6.0. As you’ll see, a “Motion Gesture” option seems to be available, which

Update – HTC M8, in slate, looking great, not long to wait

We saw the gold version just yesterday and now @evleaks are back with another leaked press render of the new HTC M8, which is show here in black or slate grey. The M8, which is apparently getting the name “The All New HTC One” (let’s hope not

The new HTC One leaks again, this time in official-looking picture

It’s another one from serial-leaker @evleaks and adds a small amount of extra detail to leaks we’ve already seen. This image of the HTC One 2, HTC Two or the “New HTC One” (depending what you choose to believe naming-wise) shows the handset in gold.. We’re now

HTC M8 reappears as the HTC One 2? More pictures to drool over

We’re seeing a little more of the HTC One successor every day. What we’re not seeing though, is a launch event. Still no news about what HTC are doing at Mobile World Congress, even though it’s looking like this will be their new device and it’ll probably

Picture special – HTC Desire 601 now available on O2 in red

Last September HTC announced the Desire 601. It’s a mid-range device with a 4.5″ QHD display and the video montage feature we also saw on the Desire 500. The handset also includes a dual-core 1.4GHz CPU, which – despite the fact it’s called the Desire 601 –

HTC Desire 500 Review

It’s got many of the HTC One features, but it’s much cheaper. Currently you can pick one up unlocked for less than £200, so does the HTC Desire 500 perform? Specs Weight – 123g Dimensions – 131.8 x 66.9 x 9.9mm Display – 4.3″ WVGA CPU –

HTC Sense 5.5 Screenshots emerge

The next version of HTC Sense seems to be leaking out onto the web quite a bit, and yet more screenshots have now made their way onto servers across the planet. The new version contains a lot of features that already in version 5 but are currently

HTC One in Glamour Red – Photo special

Morning all. I’ve got two bits of good news for you today. First, it’s Friday. Secondly, we’ve got a beautiful red HTC One for review. Yay! Now, I’ll let you into a secret. Come, follow me around the back of the Coolsmartphone servers and we’ll have a

HTC One mini review

The HTC One is the best handset that HTC have made, in my opinion at least. Now they’ve shrunk it down, but only a little bit. Whilst writing this review I’ve shown this new HTC One mini handset to three HTC One owners and they’re all pretty

Sense 5 not coming to the HTC One S

Are you a One S owner? If so, we’ve got some bad news for you – Sense 5 is not coming to the HTC One S. Our friends over at MoDaCo have got a quote from a HTC spokesperson on the subject, who said: We can confirm that

HTC One mini leaked images hit the web

Remember the HTC M4? This looks to be arriving as the HTC One mini and, like the Galaxy S4 Mini, will be a slightly-less-good and slightly-smaller version of the bigger brother. Leaked shots have appeared today, complete with a serial number (doah!) and specs are reported to

MWC – HTC in Barcelona. A full workout with the One

Last week we were in London for the launch of this, the HTC One. The launch event was pretty crowded and, although we got a video demo and some pictures, I asked the guys at the HTC stand to give us a full run-through of every new

HTC M7 ROM shots leak

A recent update by LeakROMs.com (lovely message on their website by the way) has leaked details of the upcoming HTC M7. Although there’s just one supposed shot of the M7, it’s more than a little vague and the main news is the ROM leak showing the new

Announcing the HTC One SV

In a rather confusing twist, HTC have today lifted the lid on a brand new 4G LTE enabled Android handset called the One SV. The name appears to be a (con)fusion of the HTC One, the One S and the One V while the hardware is an

HTC One X+ Review

Earlier this year HTC launched the One X.  It was generally acknowledged at the time as the best Android handset available, it had a stunning screen and a class leading camera.  Unfortunately for HTC along came the Samsung Galaxy SIII which with its aggressive marketing campaign left

HTC One X+ Initial Impressions

HTC recently released the HTC One X+, the update to the well received One X. After a small amount of pleading and thanks to the rather lovely guys at HTC, we here at Coolsmartphone have managed to get our grubby mitts on one to have a play with and

Android 4.0.4 Update heading to the HTC One X

Well, it’s a little later than Samsung and Motorola, but HTC have announced that the One X will receive a similar software update today. The update, which will bring you up to version 4.0.4, also delivers a new version of HTC Sense (probably 4.1) plus “memory and

HTC in troubled waters

Way back in 2002 I bought my first ever smartphone. Powered by a new Microsoft OS it was built by a company no-one had really heard of – HTC. The paint came off and dust used to collect behind the screen. There was even a bolt-on camera

HTC Desire V brings us dual-SIM action

Yeah I know, I bet you thought that we’d only see the “One” handsets from HTC this year. Wrong. Since the HTC One X, HTC One V and HTC One S appeared we’ve seen the HTC Desire C and now this, the slightly confusing HTC Desire V.
