HTC, remember them? Now you can’t buy their phones.

Once upon a time there was a smartphone manufacturer called HTC. Nearly everyone had one of their phones, but now there’s about 15 people buying their phones each month. It’s sad to see, it really is. I reviewed the HTC U11 and I’ve had a hands-on with their …

OnePlus hire Iron Man

OK, story time. Get comfortable.. Once there was a company called HTC. They started off making phones and strange things called “PDA’s”, but nobody knew who they were because the networks would put their logos on the devices instead. Then, some years later, HTC got big. Really big. …

MWC – HTC unveil their 5G hub

The HTC Exodus. Early access versions now available.. but…

I’m a normal guy. Well, I tell myself that anyway. So, the moment someone mentions paying for something using Bitcoin or Ethereum my eyes glaze over. I’ve got a debit card. I’m also a guy who used to really enjoy seeing HTC kit getting announced. HTC were everywhere …

HTC launch the U12 life. Great specs, equally great price.

Whenever anybody puts “Life” in the name of their product, I somehow think of a Vauxhall Corsa Life. It’s a typically entry-level car with eco credentials. Here though, the new HTC U12 life (with a lower-case “L”) offers a high-end spec for a midrange price. Available in Moonlight …

HTC. The Exodus begins

So, after losing a quarter of their remaining staff, they’ve decided to call their upcoming smartphone the “HTC Exodus”. Hmm.. I’ve got to question the logic on that one. Even their marketing says, “The Exodus Begins”. After losing so many staff it seems a bit .. insensitive. They’re …

HTC Desire 12 available for pre-order

HTC to cut a quarter of all staff

Huawei and Honor remind me a lot of HTC a few years ago. There’s a definite drive, a tenacity, a push to become known and to show the world just how good their phones are. However, some years ago HTC seemed to lose that. It’s hard to pinpoint …

HTC announce U12+ flagship

Coolsmartphone Podcast 225 In Sync

This week Matteo and Khellan got together to discuss the Smasung Galaxy S9 and S9+, the HTC Desire 12 and a bunch of other nonsense. They went off the track a bit, but gracefully kept things short and sweet. As usual, any feedback is welcome. Just pop a …

HTC Desire 12 and HTC Desire 12+ Announced

Remember the HTC Desire 11? Do you? Well, there wasn’t one. Not as far as we know. There was a HTC Desire 10, but no 11. How have we got to 12? We can only presume it’s to stop people getting confused with the HTC U11 we reviewed. …

HTC launch the HTC U11+ and HTC U11 Life.

As you’ll know if you read our HTC U11 review, we do like the HTC handsets. Before the U11 was announced, we got to play with the HTC U Play and the U Ultra but, come on, hands up who actually has either of those two. There lies …
