    At this point, you're probably feeling a little Nexus fatigue – and that's understandable. After all, our morning was positively dominated by the latest leaks and rumors surrounding both the Nexus 6 phone and Nexus 9 tablet. But what of Google's launch plans? Are those whispers of a possible October 15 or October 16 announcement accurate? Will Google hold a surprise event, or is this just going to a very low-key “hey, these are up for sale now” blog post? Forbes has just heard from “a source close to Google” and reports that both the Nexus 6 and 9 are set to debut tomorrow. Word ...

    Following Google's new Android videos and that Nexus 6 leak, we're keeping this Nexus train running just a little while longer, though for the next stop, we're switching gears to tablet territory. Probably even more than with the Nexus 6, we've been hearing that the Nexus 9's launch is imminent, set to occur as soon as tomorrow – and really, it's those Nexus 9 rumors that are driving Nexus 6 launch date speculation, and not the other way around. HTC kinda, sorta seems to have confirmed the tablet already, and yesterday one of the company's execs delivered a new teaser to keep our ...

    Don't lie, HTC One M8 owners: you were jealous when the Desire EYE went official, complete with its 13MP front and rear-facing cameras, along with a suite of nifty camera tricks. While (unfortunately) HTC won't be sending swappable camera modules to all One M8 owners, it will be beefing up the software abilities of the device, with the HTC One M8 EYE Experience update scheduled to be available for unlocked models tomorrow. The software will bring a multitude of the Desire EYE's camera features – many of which we explored extensively in our in-depth hands-on with that phone – including ...

    We're coming up on two months now from the launch of the HTC One M8 for Windows, an overdue flagship-level WP handset from someone other than the Nokia/Microsoft juggernaut. And while we were very excited to see an Android phone we loved get the Windows Phone treatment, the release of the device left a bit to be desired, hitting the US as a carrier exclusive, bound to Verizon. But even with that restriction we had cause to be optimistic, as it became clear that Verizon's exclusivity was a temporary launch thing, and that other carriers would pick up the phone for themselves in time: ...

    Over the course of the past several weeks, the notion of HTC delivering Google's next Nexus tablet has been looking more and more likely, culminating earlier this week in reported confirmation from an HTC executive. But beyond that, we had FCC docs, leaked renders, and rumor after rumor suggesting this guy was coming. While Google has yet to share any launch plans, a couple dates next week have been suggested as particularly strong possibilities, meaning we could be just days away from the model's debut. But for all the answers about this hardware that seem to have been coming our way, one ...

    Yesterday saw HTC launch its Desire EYE, but if you've been following the rumors as closely as we have, you'll know that there were two “Eye” models we've been hearing about: the Desire model we got, but also something called the One M8 Eye, which would supposedly be a One M8 that swapped its 4MP UltraPixel sensor for a regular 13MP one. HTC even seemed to be teasing the launch of a new M8-series handset, but yesterday brought us no news of the M8 Eye. Now all of a sudden the phone has seemingly gone official, popping up on HTC's Chinese website. Just as expected, this One M8 Eye ...

    In terms of size alone, it would stand to reason the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is a better match for HTC's One mini 2 and the full-sized Xperia Z3 is better suited for a comparison with the One M8. The latter may still be true, but the Xperia Z3 Compact is actually strikingly similar to the One M8, at least on the inside. Both phones have front-firing audio, similar chipsets, the same RAM, similar storage options, the same battery capacity, and most of the same connectivity options. The One M8 does have infrared and the Z3 Compact has water resistance not found on the One M8. Otherwise, it's ...

    Two of the best cameraphones out there. Two of the best-designed phones out there (though our own Michael Fisher would like to disagree). How do the HTC Desire EYE and Apple iPhone 6 / 6 Plus compare as far as there internals go, though? That's something our HTC Desire EYE vs iPhone 6 / 6 Plus specs comparison does a fine job of answering. Apple generally hasn't been known to include the highest-end specs in any of its mobile offerings, and that's largely due to the immense hardware/software optimization performed by the company. But, with that warning aside, for the sake of science, ...

    On the surface, it may seem like the HTC Desire EYE and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are entirely different beasts, but as it turns out... never mind, this really is no contest. We try to find just how large a spec gap lies between the two phones in our HTC Desire EYE vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 specs comparison, right down below. Let us begin by first stating that there is only one category where the Desire EYE beats out the Note 4, and that's also the most obvious one: the front-facing camera. Seeing as though HTC's shoved a 13MP BSI sensor and dual-LED flash in the front of the Desire EYE, ...

    Weirdly enough, HTC's Desire EYE isn't your average Desire family member in the same way a device like the Desire 610 or Desire 816 is: it also brings along with it pretty premium specs. Just how good are those specs, though, when compared to HTC's metal-clad flagship, the One M8? We're here to find out, in our full HTC Desire EYE vs HTC One M8 specs comparison. It isn't an all-out win for either side, but it is clear which is the flagship here. The One M8 scoops up four wins total in our spec categories below, while the Desire EYE pics up a mere two – both being because of the ...

    You'd think that, with the "Desire" branding, HTC's Desire EYE would just be yet another entry into the company's midrange portfolio, and you wouldn't be straying afar from the logical conclusion, either. But you couldn't be further from the truth; make no mistake, HTC's selfie phone has quite the guts. Just what exactly powers the phone, though? That's a question best answered by our full HTC Desire EYE specs list, below. HTC Desire EYE specs [table] Component,Description Screen size,5.2 inches Screen type,LCD Resolution,1920x1080 (Full HD) Pixel density,423.64 ppi SoC,Qualcomm Snapdragon ...

    You've heard about HTC's new hardware, you've heard about the EYE Experience software, and now we've got one more bit of HTC news to share from today's “double exposure” event, as the company takes its Zoe software out of beta and launches Zoe 1.0. The heavy social focus on sharing and remixing content with your friends continues, and the introduction of a new content engine is designed to create impressive Zoe compilations even with only a sparse collection of source material. When you do have more to work with, options for Zoes of varying length give the user more control over how ...

    The latest product from one of the world’s biggest smartphone makers … is not a smartphone. HTC brought us to New York City –and even took us aloft in a helicopter– to show us the utility of its one-handed action camera, and we've got a hardware tour and some quick first impressions! HTC RE hands-on An inhaler. A periscope. A water pipe. The list of everyday objects the RE resembles goes on and on. But that weird form factor makes it easy to hold, and it also makes the RE stand out - or stand up, if you prefer. It fits easily into a pocket and it’s designed to be used ...

    The day has arrived for HTC's latest launch event, an announcement it's been teasing under the “double exposure” banner. We've been looking forward to news of hardware with camera performance among its main features, including both a new camera accessory and a smartphone with exceptional selfie capabilities. This afternoon, HTC has announced both such model; let's get started by checking out what the company calls its “remarkable little camera,” the HTC RE. The design is just what we've seen in previous leaks, something you might mistake for an asthma inhaler. That layout is ...

    Its name says "Desire," but this selfie-centric smartphone is much better equipped than other devices bearing the name. To learn a little more about it, HTC put us up in NYC –in more ways than one– so we could experience the curiosity of what the company hopes is a "selfie phone" done right. The Desire EYE gets its name from the eyeball-like sensor smack in the middle of its forehead, a 13MP camera mated to an f/2.2, 22mm lens and augmented by a dual-LED flash. That's a slight change from the f/2.0, 28mm lens of the rear-facing shooter, but otherwise these cameras are as close as ...
