HTC Bliss Makes Blur-Free Appearance, Not as Green as We Thought It’d Be
Wednesday 24th of August 2011
The HTC Bliss, while not the most powerful, is certainly one of the more interesting phones we’ve been hearing about. It was first rumored to be a lady-centric device, employing a soothing green hue for its chassis and a charm that’ll light up when a notification is received.While we’re still a bit iffy about the truth of that last one, it definitely does look a bit like what was described to us a while ago. I can’t tell from the photo, but the green hue here is not as strong as we imagined it’d be. It looks to be a very easy light olive green, but we can’t say for sure.Other things in the image confirm that this will have a front-facing camera and judging by the picture of it in the model’s hand (below), it looks like it could be 3.7-4 inches. As for other rumored specs, this one is said to have an 800MHz processor, likely the same one inside the HTC Status/ChaCha. It should also come with Android 2.3 and an older version of HTC Sense.

HTC Inspire 4G: Mobile Minute & Quick Impressions
Wednesday 02nd of February 2011
We’ve heard all about the HTC Inspire 4G release date and potential pricing so not a whole lot remains uncovered except for the retail packaging many of you want to ever so powerfully rip apart on February 13th. To ease the pain of an almost 2-week wait, check out this 1-minute video from AT&T themselves and a few quick impressions supplied by PC World who apparently have the device in-house:And the relevant PC World pointers:Well, the Inspire doesn’t have a front-facing camera, an HDMI slot or a kickstand. On the other hand, it does have Dolby Mobile HD sound, which is great for watching full-length movies on your phone.This is a bit finicky, but I’m not a huge fan of the way HTC has designed the SIM card and battery slots. Rather making the battery cover one removable piece, you have to remove two different panels to get to these slots. The battery slot was especially hard to remove and put back together. I felt like I had to use some force to get the piece to snap in-which is never a good feeling.The Inspire’s unibody design is otherwise very attractive
HTC One SV Review
Thursday 21st of March 2013
The HTC One SV isn't the most recent addition to HTC's increasingly confusingly named One series of phones, nor is the most talked about. That doesn't mean, however, that it isn't worth a look.It may not have the most eye-poppingly impressive specs, but the HTC One SV is part of a recent trend of very capable yet inexpensive dual-core phones. Does it have what it takes to keep up with its competition? Read on to find out.In a hurry? Check out our video review or jump to the conclusion at the end of the article.Specs1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processorAdreno 305 GPU4.3-inch WVGA display (800 x 480, 217 ppi)1 GB RAM8 GB internal storage, expandable via microSD slot5 MP rear-facing camera /w 1080p video capture1.6 MP front-facing camera /w 720 video capture1,800 mAh replaceable batteryAndroid 4.0.4 Ice Cream SandwichBuild Quality & DesignIt's fairly easy to confuse the HTC One SV with other devices in the same line, such as the One X, and it's likely that this was a conscious decision on HTC's part.

HTC One X+ dummy units begin arriving in Telus retail stores
Thursday 15th of November 2012
Telus announced the upcoming availability of the HTC One X+ smartphone back in early-October. At that time they kept the pricing a secret and offered nothing more than that the handset was coming “this fall.” And well, while we have yet to get anything specific in terms of a release date, we have recently gotten a hint that the release will be happening soon. The hint is dummy units. Yup, dummy units, because there is no better sign that a release is imminent than having smartphone dummy units make an appearance in stores. Of course, officially speaking, Telus still has the One X+ listed as “coming soon.”Otherwise, just as a recap, the HTC One X+ is similar to the One X, just with a bump in the specs. The One X+ will have a 2100 mAh battery, 1.6 megapixel front-facing camera, quad-core 1.7GHz processor and 64GB of internal storage. The handset does not have any microSD card slot though. You can also expect a 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 display, 8 megapixel rear-facing camera, LTE connectivity and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.jQuery(document).on('glossaryTooltipReady',funct
My opinions on the HTC One V
Saturday 15th of September 2012
a little history before I start. My first Android was the Samsung Transform with sprint. When Virgin Mobile came out with the Triumph I jumped ship. Probably the worst move I made. In one year I had 6 Triumphs all of them having different defects. Two weeks ago I purchased the EVO V. Three of them defective. Which led me to purchase the One V. First impressions I have to say we're good. I wasn't expecting much for $150. Build quality is fantastic and solid. The camera takes fast and decent pictures. Now one of the things that pushed me to buy the phone is the screen. At this price point you usually get a cruddy screen and lower resolution. Not with the One V. Colors are vibrant and sharp and I don't see any jagged lines or pixelation. It has android 4.0 and sense 4.0. Sense is okay. Beats audio does actually improve the sound so it's a plus cause I plan to use the phone as a mp3 player replacement. Battery life is good but I was expecting better. There are obvious cost cutting measures. For one there is no front facing camera. It doesn't come with an sd card and it has a rather slow
Verizon's HTC One Max Available Today For $300 And Two Years Of Your Life
Thursday 21st of November 2013
If you like massive phones, fingerprint scanners, HTC, and Verizon, today might just be the luckiest day of your life. Why is that, you ask? I'll tell you why! Because the massive HTC One Max is now available on Big Red. See, dreams really do come true. But let's say you're not the huge-phone-fingerprint-scanner-HTC-Verizon-loving type. Let's say you have no idea what the One Max is. No problem, let's just clear that up right now. The One Max is HTC's try at a big ol' phone, coming in with a 5.9-inch screen. Stylistically it looks like a stretched-out HTC One, which includes BOOMSOUND (aka front-facing speakers); however, HTC also cut some corners and took out some of the things that make the One special, like the OIS camera, for example. The Max just has a regular 4UP (UltraPixel) camera. Bummer. However, it does have a nifty fingerprint scanner that scans your fingerprints because reasons, so that's something. If the One Max sounds like a dream trapped inside a cell phone to you, you can head on over to your local Verizon and pick one up for three Benjamins ($300) with a two-year
All New HTC One (M8) camera functions get detailed in new hands on video
Sunday 23rd of March 2014
We are only two days away from the unveiling of the All New HTC One (M8) so why not another thorough hands on video review? I have good news and bad news. First, the good news, this video is much better than previous ones. The bad news is that it’s in German, and Google’s closed caption translator isn’t all that effective. Still, you can get a pretty good idea of the new Sense 6.0 and some of the new Duo Camera features.The video is a total of 14:02, but the camera section is pretty thorough and starts at about 5:30. The reviewer says the main lens is 4.1 UltraPixel and the secondary lens is 2MP. This contradicts with an earlier report indicating at least one lens is 16MP. As expected, the front-facing camera comes in at 5MP. The review does show how you can re-focus images in certain spots, and he even shows a tilting 3D effect, which I still don’t get.There is also an extreme battery saver option that changes the UI completely. I would imagine it also turns off a lot of features as well, but that wasn’t clear. Speaking of the battery, it appears The Al
HTC One M8 Top Speaker grill- small bump/loose?
Wednesday 23rd of April 2014
Hi, I'm new to Android and the HTC M8. While I was taking my phone's case off, I noticed that the top speaker grill had/has a sm. bump (under the front facing camera). I pressed it and it went back down - it stayed nice and flush with the screen, a few seconds later... the bump came back up again. Does your M8 have the same issue, or is it flush with the screen? Is this normal, or is mine defected?i have until tomorrow to return/exchange it (14 day trial). I paid full price for it, and I'm planning on keeping for at lease a year and a half. i just don't want the grill to fall off in a few months. Thanks everybody. Appreciate the help and feedback.
Front Facing camera on HTC One m8 distortion?
Sunday 20th of July 2014
I just purchased the htc one today, and have loved it so far. Until I sensed it was time for a selfie, and then frustration set in. The first picture I took with the front camera I noticed my head had grown about 3 times its normal size. Like all good selfie takers, I naturally raise my phone to take the picture, but the distortion does not happen when taking a picture straight on. It distorts at the bottom, and top of the picture, and also gets very dark in the same places and unnaturally light in the middle of the frame. The picture quality is also very grainy and slightly blurry. Is there anyway to fix this problem? I've also heard that the samsung phones have this problem as well, so if I were to return this phone, I would have no idea what to get in replacement. So if anyone has any suggestions I'm open lol
HTC One M8 front-facing camera distortion/stretch
Thursday 25th of September 2014
No, no, no... not this again! Decided to take some selfies to test the front-facing camera and noticed it stretches the edges of the photos. I was so convinced on buying this phone I forgot to even test it out in-stores to check if the front-facing camera was still an issue like it was on the M7. I also bought it from an online Australian store, but imported, so I can't be bothered returning it. It seems like the S5 and a few other models have this issue? I have already tried changing the settings by going to crop and then changing it from wide to standard. Standard helps to reduce the distortion A BIT, and square is better but still distorted. These photos are just shocking. I will post them anyway for the sake of science and hilarity. Does anyone else have this problem? Even the more centred photo stretches my forehead. As if it's not big enough!!
