HTC post some rather disappointing revenue figures

Following the launch of the HTC 10, all eyes are on the HTC revenue figures. The company has just announced their unaudited revenue for May 2016 and, well, things don’t look too hot. The company have announced an NT$6.75 bn revenue for May 2016. For  January to May …

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 …

HTC 10 coming to Tesco Mobile

As you’ll have probably already heard today, Tesco Mobile have received some pretty high customer satisfaction figures. Not only that, but the network (which uses O2), is to offer up the HTC 10 with absolutely no upfront cost. All the plans below allow “Anytime Upgrade” as standard and …

HTC 10 Camera shots

Back in the day we’d be able to at least bring you some details about what a new HTC handset feels, looks and operates like. Sadly, as the HTC 10 didn’t have a launch event and loan handsets are very thin on the ground, we really can’t say …

HTC 10 – The videos

Usually when a brand new handset is launched we’ll be reporting live right now. We’d be battling to get hold of the actual, real phone so that we can give you some instant feedback on what it’s actually like in the flesh. Unfortunately, the HTC 10 launch isn’t …

HTC 10 Announced – All the details you need

In stark contrast to the huge Huawei P9 launch last week, the HTC web-only announcement was quite understated. No queues, no hands-on time, no photographs and no tiny burgers on sticks. It was all very… different. The handset, when it did appear on the HTC website, didn’t offer …

HTC 10 Exposes itself all over the internet

To be fair, there’s almost nothing that we don’t know of the upcoming HTC 10 announcement. There’s been leaks-a-plenty, with photos and specs already doing the rounds. Today there’s an entire video, which you can see below.. She’s looking a bit like the HTC One A9 that we …

HTC and the #powerof10 – An update

OK. Situation report. HTC are going to show us their next high-end device in a couple of weeks. Initially we expected this to be called the HTC One M10, but it may now be called the “HTC 10”. We’ve had leaked photographs, a confirmed launch date (April 12th) …

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 …

1=10? – Photos of next HTC Flagship leak

There has been a lot of chatter about this years flagship from HTC, with early leaks showing a design reminiscent of the HTC One A9 we reviewed. Now today, serial “leaker” (is that a word?) OnLeaks has tweeted some photos of the new device. The device is reportedly named the HTC …

HTC One M10 Teaser video goes online

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

HTC decided to quietly push out this handset here in Barcelona. No big launch, no explosions, just a funky mid-range handset. Well, three actually, but we’ll get to the other two in a minute. They all have an extremely similar design and this, the HTC Desire 530, packs …

MWC – HTC One M10 coming out of the shadows

The HTC stand of 2016, if I’m brutally honest, has a lot of similarities with the HTC stand of 2015. The HTC Vive is on show and there’s a lot of handsets that were released some months ago. There’s a lot of HTC One A9 devices here, and …

HTC One M10 Rumours for MWC 2016

Vodafone bag the exclusive on the deep garnet HTC One A9

I had to paint our hallway recently. Trying to choose paint is always a difficult process. There’s usually a thousand different versions of “beige” with crazy names like “harvest dawn”, “straw mocha” or “Oxford stone”. Now, in 2016, I’m getting information about a phone which is “Deep Garnet”. …

HTC One X9 leaks out in crystal-clear shots

Possible HTC One X9 leakage?

It’s safe to say that we were pretty impressed with the HTC One A9. Our review highlighted the great battery life and excellent build quality. Sure, it’s a shame that here in Europe we’re going to have to pay more for it and we’ll be getting the 16GB …

You’ve read the HTC One A9 review we posted last week and now HTC are cranking up the advertising machine for their shiny, skinny handset. Gone are those … ermm… “interesting” Robert Downey Jr adverts and now we’ve got something very different indeed. Here’s the ad, and see …

HTC One A9 – Review

A bit of history first, and perhaps a personal viewpoint from myself. Back in 2002 I handled my first HTC smartphone. It was branded up as an Orange SPV and it kick-started this entire website. HTC had a meteoric rise in the years following, releasing phones under their …

HTC One A9 – The details

You’ve seen the launch, you’ve heard the rumours and now it’s here – the very latest member of the HTC One family. Meet the HTC One A9.. Boasting an “evolution” of the original HTC One design, there’s a new “metalmorphics” approach to the design and finish of the …
