    In a world of cookie-cutter designs, the Dot View case for HTC's One M8 is a breath of fresh air. Sure, we had a few issues with the way HTC manufactured this accessory, not to mention the steep price, but it's difficult to deny how eye-catching it is, and how useful the notifications it delivers can be. Today HTC drops an update for the case's corresponding Dot View app, adding a few new options that should hopefully make the accessory even more fun to use. The big one here is personalization: HTC now lets users choose between a number of themes – background images that act as special ...

    Some of the biggest smartphone markets today are over in Asia, with both China and India becoming hotspots for OEM advertising as of late. To that end, it doesn't surprise us in the least to see the HTC One E8 Indian launch, along with the same for the Desire 616. The One E8 is the higher-end of the two, coming in with premium specs quite similar to what can be found on the One M8. It has a 5-inch 1080p display (with 441 pixels per inch), 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage (with microSD expansion up to 128GB). The E8 also has a 13 MP rear ...

    The HTC One Remix has leaked a number of times as of yet, as Verizon's carrier-specific One mini 2. Today comes yet another leak, though this one's a bit unconventional -- it's made possible by Big Red itself, which happened to post an HTC One Remix promo video prematurely. While there isn't quite a boatload of information to garner from this video (couple that with the fact that we weren't able to watch it), there's some means of sly confirmation of what we think we already know. The video was titled "HTC One Remix | Demo | Verizon Wireless," and had the following as its YouTube ...

    HTC's focus lately has shifted over to mid-range phones, having released the One mini 2 and Desire 610 just recently, and it looks like even more additions to the Desire family are in order. If information from incredibly reliable tipster @evleaks is to be believed, an HTC Desire 510 Sprint release could be in the cards and coming soon. Since the Desire 510 has not even launched globally, we're at a loss for what exactly we should expect from this phone. Being part of the Desire series implies that it's a mid-ranger, though, so that's pretty much for granted. The only real source of ...

    HTC has certainly seen better days. Despite its valiant efforts last year with the One M7, it couldn't seem to reclaim the high status it once held in the smartphone realm. It's fought through serious competition, dwindling revenues, and shrinking market and mind share. It's tried to be bold, to be different, and to continue to maintain the utmost quality possible. Finally, it seems to have started to pay off for the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer. In its most recent quarterly earnings report, HTC posted the first profits in some time. It also hit its quarterly earnings estimate. All ...

    The feeling of change coming to Google's lineup of Play edition devices has been almost palpable these past couple months. There was that brief hint of a GPe Galaxy S5 back in April, and then last month we noticed half of the six devices making up the series going out of stock, no longer up for purchase. Were new models just about to arrive? Was Google ready to kill-off Play editions entirely in favor of Android Silver or some other new effort? We're still not sure just where this is all headed, but this evening we've witnessed a pretty big shift occurring, as those three out-of-stock ...

    HTC continues to be its future on the mid-to-high tier of the smartphone market, and its latest quarter results show us that the strategy is working. The recent launch of the Desire 816 and Desire 610 show us a couple of products that, while mid-tier, are superior in quality when compared to the devices they compete with. Recently we learned that the company is adopting MediaTek processors for the future of that mid-tier offering, and it seems that future starts today. HTC has just launched the Desire 616 in Russia and parts of Asia, and the most interesting feature this device brings to ...

    You might remember that at the launch of the HTC One M8 I wrote an article titled “I was going to switch my iPhone 5s to an HTC One M8, but..”  and my arguments for avoiding the change were based on the poor camera, its lack of a fingerprint scanner, and the fact that boom sound wasn’t everything. Fast forward to today, give me an HTC One M8 for a week and now my iPhone is in a drawer. Since a lot of you asked us why this happened in our previous After The Buzz episode of the HTC One (M8), we'll compare both of these devices in a video, and tell you the reasons why. There is no such ...

    HTC appears to finally be getting the love it deserves in the mobile space. Its two most high-end handsets from the last two years received nothing but praise from the press and consumers. The One M7 won handfuls of awards and the One M8 is slated to do just the same. And, finally, after a long stint of hemorrhaging money, the company has turned a profit. Just last month, we had cause for concern. HTC's financials weren't looking so great. Revenue was down and the company was still losing money. However, we learned earlier today that HTC has finally started to turn things around. In its Q2 ...

    For a lot of smartphone users, being able to juggle two SIMs on a single phone is a big deal. Maybe they're looking to get the best value for their mobile dollar, or expect to be traveling to areas where the ability to jump on to a local carrier's network would be ideal, but for whatever reason, dual SIM phones are in demand. The problem's been finding this sort of option on your favorite high-end flagship, and all too often users are forced to choose between dual SIM models and those with all the latest flagship features. Luckily for HTC fans, the One M8 will no longer put them in that ...

    Last month we had our latest check-in with HTC's financial figures, and they had us a little concerned. Revenues were down from April, calling into question the One M8's ability to really drive sales over time. Still, HTC seemed optimistic, and it wasn't backing down from its second quarter estimates. Today the company's June numbers arrive, completing that Q2 picture, and they're looking pretty solid, after all. Revenue's up compared to May, and while that's still down slightly from April, we're seeing a much more leveling-off effect than occurred last year. In 2013, HTC had a great May, ...

    For several months now, rumors have been growing persistent with claims that HTC is renewing its interest in tablets and that a new Android model is on its way. Last month we shared the latest talk about an HTC Nexus tablet, taking the codename Volantis, and its very unusual hardware. Unlike most every Android tablet out there, Volantis was said to employ a display taking a 4:3 aspect ratio, as Apple uses with its iPad models. But now we've got a new set of Volantis leaks to check out today, and in addition to refuting that 4:3 rumor, they make a few new wild claims of their own. According ...

    The HTC One mini 2 is what its name implies, a miniature version of the flagship HTC One M8 - at least it tries to be. That statement carries a lot more than one might surmise. I've previously talked about how people assume and expect a "mini" version of a similarly named flagship to be a miniaturized version of the same -- and are disappointed to discover that it is not. The same is true of the HTC One mini 2 -- except for the disappointment. The HTC One mini 2 is an aluminum-clad smartphone with a super-premium feel, running a great build of Android, and has amazing built-in sound. ...
