The HTC One is HTC's 2013 Android flagship. Following up on the 1080p screens in the Butterfly and Droid DNA, the One shrinks things down to an even higher-density 4.7-inch 1080p display. Constructed with an aluminum shell, the handset measures a mere 4 millimeters thick around its edge. The One marks the arrival of HTC's UltraPixel imaging technology, sacrificing camera resolution in an attempt to produce higher-quality snapshots.

    Smartphone customers are always on the lookout for the "perfect" smartphone. So far, we haven't seen it, not yet anyway. There's always something that's just not "good enough" to be perfect. The camera isn't great. It doesn't have an SD card slot. The battery is too small. There's no Qi wireless charging in it. The screen uses the "wrong" technology. The colors aren't "Miniman-tastic" (or is it "Miniman-ilicious"). You get my point. In short, manufacturers have to keep pandering to a constantly moving target and a sometimes fickle customer-base -- and they've got to do it without giving ...

    I'm a fan of HTC products. Anyone who's been around very long probably remembers how I recall my days with the HP iPaq with great fondness. That device was well-built, stylish, and rugged! I teamed that little Pocket PC up with an IR keyboard and typed countless pages of notes from my college courses on it. While others with laptops hunted for power outlets, I just sat down and tapped away. Back then HTC built devices that other OEMs sold with their brands stamped all over them. Eventually HTC started making its own products, but the road has been pretty rocky. That seemed to turn around ...

    Make no mistake, I'm a Nexus fan. I've owned every Nexus smartphone to date. I've passed up many of the "flagship" models from other OEMs, opting instead to stick with "older" technology. Put another way, I'm usually 6-months out-of-date when it comes to the "latest and greatest" smartphone because I'm not jumping to LG, HTC, Samsung, or Sony's newest phone. With the typical contract cycle being two years in these United States, I thought using a phone for one year would be the norm. Imagine my surprise when I learned that many of you are abandoning your flagship phone so you can switch to ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Google's Nexus 7 deals, which are ironically not better than the deals we had already talked about a couple of days ago. We then talk about the Google Edition phones receiving Android 4.4 KitKat as of today. Then it's patent talk as we go through Samsung's probable new flagship feature for the Galaxy S 5. Apple follows the news as the company has also filed a patent, but this time in order to bring Lytro technology into the cameras of their future devices. We end today's show talking about the launch of the Moto G in the United States. All ...

    I talk with a lot of people about mobile technology (a LOT of people), and I read a lot of comments. A common thread that comes up when people learn that I'm Joe the Android Guy™ is the sentiment that "Android is laggy". So let's set the story straight: Android isn't laggy -- but your cheap phone or tablet may be. The problem isn't with the operating system. Android itself is plenty snappy, but Android does things a bit differently than other mobile operating systems. Android runs tasks all the time, no much unlike most modern desktop computers. The more tasks you're running, the slower ...

    Before anyone gets their hopes up, as of right this instant, the only device that has an official build of Android 4.4 KitKat is Google's own Nexus 5. That will change as soon as Google releases updates for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10, and as other OEMs begin pushing updates to their flagship devices. HTC has already committed to releasing its updates "within 90 days". In the meantime, Google has already pushed KitKat into the AOSP, and you know what that means: custom ROMs! Custom ROMs come in all shapes, sizes, and levels of stability. Some are rock solid, and some may turn your ...

    Before the iPhone was born, everyone wanted an iPod. Back then you could carry around your entire music collection with you. Today, times have changed. MP3s have gotten larger and higher-quality, and individual songs are now easier to find and much easier to download.  Taken together, the size of our music libraries has increased significantly since the "good ol' days" of the original iPod. Luckily, iPods have improved as well, but now most of us use our smartphones to do that which our iPods used to. Interestingly, a good deal of smartphones still come with only 8GB or 16GB storage. The ...

    It was inevitable, really. It couldn't not happen. The very second Apple announced “15% bigger” the parallels were drawn. “Wait a minute! The HTC One has bigger pixels. The iPhone 5s has bigger pixels.  They must be the same!” Well, not quite. But it had to happen, so here it is. There was much speculation as to why HTC decided to put a teeny tiny camera with a fake name into their phones. Some claimed HTC was cheap. Some claimed the One couldn't hold a bigger camera given its thickness or lack thereof. Some claim – get this – that the Ultrapixels actually contribute to a ...

    Google used to have "launch partners" to help it show off a new operating system or new platform. Motorola showed off its XOOM tablet, Logitech showed off its Google TV set top box. After that, Google leaned more toward Nexus devices to show its new features, rather than its traditional "launch partner" approach. Many of us in the tech industry mused about the potential (albeit remote) of multiple Nexus devices in each category (smartphone, 7-inch tablet, and 10-inch tablet), perhaps even the flagship smartphone from every top-tier manufacturer, being made available for sale unlocked, ...

    When sites like Pocketnow review smartphones and tablets it can be somewhat difficult to flatten the playing field and return an unbiased evaluation comparing Apples to Apples (if you'll pardon the pun). Part of this stems from the fact that in addition to comparing different hardware, journalists are also challenged with comparing dissimilar software features. These differences can reach beyond the user experience and can manifest anomalous readings in bench-marking utilities and negatively impact everyday performance. Thanks to "Google Editions" of the latest-and-greatest Android-powered ...

    Call it the Battle of the Power Houses, HTC and Sony are lined up toe-to-toe with their latest top-tier smartphones. In the Sony corner we have the Xperia Z. In the HTC corner is the HTC One. We showed you the Sony Zperia Z from CES 2013 and were quite impressed with it. As Brandon said, "it's a darn nice phone". And it should be. Sporting an S4 Pro quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and backed up by 2GB RAM, it's very snappy. The skin Sony has opted for is fairly light-weight but distinctively different from the stock Android experience that you'll get from a Nexus device. This ...

    It's judgement day for HTC. Since the end of 2012, rumors of the Taiwanese manufacturer's newest flagship have snowballed. Peter Chou was even filmed on stage leading HTC in a chant at a company party, "HTC! HTC! HTC! M7! M7! M7! HTC One!" And virtually every inch of what is assumed to be HTC One has been inspected by way of hardware leaks, renders, software screen shots and even camera samples. It's safe to say Chou and Co. weren't terribly worried about the surprise factor this time around. Earlier this morning, HTC President Jason Mackenzie took the stage at a one-off press event in New ...
