HTC’s One X smartphone has been pictured in press-shot form, days ahead of the Android quad-core’s official debut expected to take place at MWC 2012, and complete with dedicated Ice Cream Sandwich control buttons. The handset, previously known as the HTC Edge and Endeavor, is expected to run Android 4.0 and Sense 4.0 on NVIDIA’s Tegra [...]
If everybody loves an underdog story, why aren't more people buying HTC phones? That's the question the Android stalwart must be puzzling over, having spent the past four to five years trying to figure out how to be "critic's choice" rather than "also-ran" in the smartphone space.
Google has released the Android platform distribution numbers for the month of May, revealing that the latest iteration of its mobile OS – Marshmallow – is now powering 7.5% of all active Android devices worldwide.
That’s quite a notable jump for Marshmallow given that its share was 4.6% last month. Lollipop, meanwhile, held on to the top spot with 35.6% share, slightly down from 35.
Live image of the upcoming Motorola?Moto X (2016) smartphone surfaced?back in December that revealed a metal body for the smartphone. Now press images of the Moto X (2016) and the new Droid smartphone that will be heading to Verizon have surfaced. The new images confirm the metal body and also reveals a fingerprint sensor below the display on a rather large looking bezel.
Verizon sent me short term loaner unit of the LG G5 a couple weeks ago and I’ve been holding off reviewing it until I received the camera grip module. Since the grip module isn’t due to get here for another week or so, I thought I’d go ahead and split the review into two parts and post part one now that offers my initial impressions of the phone.
When it comes to the topic of reviewing a phone that carries a retail price of roughly $100, it?s easy to view them in a favorable light. How can something that doesn?t cost all that much ultimately disappoint? Surely, it?s worth the price tag, right?
As it turns out, there are instances where you can quickly identify where a phone cuts corners.
But first, the broad strokes. HTC is going to have 32 and 64GB versions, but both have microSD slots that take cards up to 2TB. While we're waiting on carrier pricing details, the unlocked version HTC will sell directly (pre-orders start today ) costs $699/£569.
The summer heat is out of control this year. With each year that passes our planet gets warmer, and with the hottest month ahead of us, you should consider taking advantage of Amazon’s deal of the day today. Amazon is offering massive discounts on Whytner portable AC units. They’re great for those of you who only need cool air to sleep at night, or simply do not have AC to cool off.
The HTC 10 may not exactly impress you the same way the other latest premium flagship phones did recently but the Taiwanese company still have others fans. The HTC 10 is still a worthy upgrade but if you think the $699 is too much, there's the lower variant in the form of the HTC 10 Lifestyle which should be more affordable.
HTC has taken the wraps off its latest and greatest flagship, the HTC 10 (yup, the company has dropped both the "One" and the "M"). But it isn't some grand reinvention of the smartphone—it isn't even a reinvention of an HTC smartphone. Instead, what we have here is the result of years of refinement from a company that's in sore need of a win .
HTC had stopped listening, but it learned its lesson with the new HTC 10 . Back in 2013 HTC unveiled the flagship One M7, and was widely praised for its unibody design, purposefully different approach to phone photography, and overall user-experience.
This is HTC's flagship for 2016, and don't let the name fool you: the HTC 10 is absolutely an Android device. A 5.2-inch, 2K Marshmallow smartphone with a full-metal unibody, the HTC 10 packages Snapdragon 820, 4GB of memory, and USB-C in a slick, premium chassis. The display has a 564ppi pixel density, and covers 92-percent of the NTSC color gamut.
So as far as gaming tablets go, we’re looking to NVIDIA at the top of the pile. They put out the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet in 2014, and there were no questions at all as to who was top dog in this market. They repackaged said tablet last year, similar specs but a lower price tag, with the SHILED Tablet K1 .
Android has a fragmentation problem, but HTC believes the new HTC 10 is the first step toward fixing it. The company's new 2016 flagship doesn't go the whole "Nexus" route and abandon HTC Sense altogether, but it does benefit from a more nuanced approach to software add-ons and confusing preloads.
Perhaps the biggest news of the month was the arrival of the HTC 10. As you'd expect, Phil and team absolutely nailed the coverage. You can out the HTC 10 Review, HTC 10 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 edge comparisons, and even an HTC 10 vs iPhone 6s head-to-head. One other story I found of great interest was Alex's case for a Nexus 7P tablet. All great stuff.
HTC fans in the UK who have been wondering when they could get hands on the HTC 10 smartphone can now pre-order the device via Three. We have a few weeks to go before the smartphone will be delivered, Three shows the estimated delivery date to be Friday May 6. The HTC 10 will sell for 49 upfront and 38 per month.
Yesterday Google released their new 3rd-party keyboard for iOS users named Gboard. With it, came the extremely-useful G button, which essentially integrates Google searches into your keyboard. This means never having to leave your messaging app just to search for something relevant again. Naturally, Android owners have been wondering where their version of the app is.
Back in the early days of the Windows 10 upgrade rollout, Microsoft was put on the hot seat for silently changing previously configured user settings. Specifically for changing the default web browser to the new Microsoft Edge, even if the user previously had a different browser, like Chrome or Firefox, set in Windows 7 or 8.
HTC is attempting to get back into the Android Smartphone game with its newly released H10 model. The question is do they offer enough to sway users from the leader of the pack, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 ? It comes with a very solid unibody aluminum design that underwent 10000 hrs of drop tests. The downside is that a metal housing means no wireless charging.
