    We first officially saw the Desire 610 at Mobile World Congress in Berlin, Spain back in February. A low-end update to the Desire lineup, HTC didn't aim to wow the masses, but rather offer a pretty, capable device for a fair price. Joe published our review of the Desire 816 – the 610's bigger, higher-end sibling – and felt moderately pleased with the phone. Point being, we have high expectations for the 610, and with a growing number of compelling low-end handsets, this particular handset has its work cut out for it. Devices like the Moto G, Moto E, and even the One mini 2 have ...

    In terms of smartphone offerings, this year is shaping up to be one of the most impressive ever. Not only are manufacturers managing to pull together some of the most advanced specifications into a single device, they are also (finally) focusing on things like user experience, software optimization, and sheer performance. And to top it all off, some are giving design and hardware more attention than in past years. The end result is stellar smartphones, all of which run well, look gorgeous, and offer a horde of useful features. Don't get me wrong. While these phones are more well-rounded ...

    HTC and Samsung both introduced new Android flagships earlier this year, and both phones found themselves mixed up with rumors of higher-end “Prime” versions arriving with better SoCs, higher-res displays, and an all around more premium experience. Those GS5 Prime rumors may still come to pass (even if under a different name), but the latest word on a possible One M8 Prime suggests that HTC's plans have been shelved. Even if there's no Prime option this time around, leaks are already looking forward to 2015 and M9 plans, and a new rumor suggests that not only will the M9 have a ...

    HTC makes some great high-end devices, and we gave the One M8 one of the highest scores that we've ever given a device. But that's a "flagship" phone, what about the mid-tier? Luckily HTC has you covered there as well, in more ways that one! When diving to the middle, HTC had a couple ways it could go to keep the price of the device down. One option was to make the device smaller, the other was to drop the specifications - or both. We've already told you what we think of the HTC Desire 816 in our full review: a mid-tier phone with flagship DNA. Similarly, we've given the HTC One mini 2 ...

    If there's one trend that has become apparent in 2014, it's the selfie. We have a song dedicated to selfies, so why not a smartphone next? HTC seems to have taken the initiative -- according to the latest leak of the Taiwanese manufacturer's plans, we should expect to see a phone codenamed "Eye" launch soon, dedicated to selfies. The device allegedly will be launching in the fourth quarter, which would make sense; this may be why we haven't yet seen additional leaks spring.In the United States, the Eye will allegedly be launched on AT&T, but it may not be the only US carrier to stock ...

    Probably one of the biggest disappointments of owning any smartphone from a carrier, is how long it'll take all of us to enjoy software updates. The fact that there is an additional middleman between you and your latest and greatest Android experience can be frustrating, and still, we have seen some dramatic improvements this year. HTC is one of the companies that's done significant improvements in this manner, and today we get more good news. If you're currently rocking the HTC One M7, which is one of the smartphones that we most praised last year, you'll love the fact that HTC is giving ...

    Over the past couple weeks, we've heard about more than a few Androids rumored to be in the works for Verizon in the US, with @evleaks providing many of the details. He's already told us to expect the carrier to pick up Sony's Xperia Z2 Tablet, and informed us that while other carriers would get the HTC One mini 2, Verizon would be renaming the handset to the HTC One Remix. We've even had a couple opportunities to check out One Remix imagery, but today not only brings us the highest quality Remix render to date, but brings along a shot of the Z2 Tablet with Verizon's branding to keep it ...

    Last year's HTC One was a critical darling that nonetheless failed to turn those glowing reviews into big sales figures. Indeed, by fall the company was showing signs of floundering, experiencing its first reported quarterly loss. Would 2014 see its fortunes improve? Ever since the launch of the One M8 we've been trying to get a handle on how its sales were doing; some reports sounded good, while others sounded bad, but HTC itself kept a positive outlook. Today the company posts its May revenue figures, and after a brief surge in April, income is already on a downward slump. Remember, the ...

    All the way back in April, we checked out a leaked render of the HTC One M8 in red, sporting some Verizon branding. Considering how we saw a red One M7 last year, and red was even among rumored M8 launch colors, the find wasn't too surprising. And indeed, following additional leaks of the red One M8 in May, we finally saw the manufacturer formally confirm the new option, with sales of the phone beginning in Taiwan. What we didn't get, though, was much of a sense for HTC's global plans for the model; would the red One M8 eventually be everywhere its existing color options were sold? We're ...

    Last Thursday, we saw HTC seemingly confirm a smartphone we'd been keeping an eye on for the past several weeks, the model we've been talking about as the M8 Ace. HTC China hosted some pages related to a contest for the phone, but we didn't see any corresponding launch announcement. Had someone jumped the gun? And were we ever going to learn of a more formal name for this phone than the One "Vogue" or “Fashion Edition,” not really sure if our automatic translation tools were steering us down the right path? We've had to wait a few days since then, but answers are finally incoming, as ...

    Devices in HTC's Desire line have never been intended as flagships, but phones sporting the vaunted "D label" have usually been quite well received. Rather than going all-in and stacking the spec list with high-end line items, Desires sit much closer to the middle. Such is the case with the Desire 816 – but it's also packing more than a few pleasant surprises under the hood. Did HTC make too many concessions with its mid-tier phone, or did it manage to find the perfect balance between specs and user experience? Let's find out in our Desire 816 review! • Video Review · Specs & ...

    New York City is a fine place to sneak a peek at some unreleased devices, and that's just what we did this week with the LG G3 event (streamed from London to an airy presentation room in a Chelsea skyscraper) and AT&T's ASUS PadFone X announcement (held on a posh rooftop lounge near the Flatiron). At one of those events, Daniel Bader of MobileSyrup was our seat neighbor, so we thought we'd invite him on this week's podcast to discuss the more globally significant of these high-profile launches. Join us as we share our impressions of the LG G3: how it stands on its own and how well it ...

    All of a sudden, HTC's One family has started looking like it's about to get quite crowded. We saw HTC China go official with the phone we've been tracking as the One M8 Ace, and new rumors arrived to suggest that we'd be seeing an HTC One M8 Plus, as well as a One M8 Advance, launch late this summer. And in addition to all of that, there have been those rumors of an M8 Prime, bringing the phone a quad HD display; just how many M8s does HTC intend to release? Before we get too carried away with the flood of M8 models, a new rumor claims that we shouldn't be holding our breath for official ...

    The first time we heard about the HTC One Remix, about two weeks ago, we knew it will eventually land on Verizon's line-up, but we didn't know exactly what the phone was. Now, according to @evleaks, we're getting answers, as the HTC One Remix will allegedly be Verizon's HTC One Mini 2. While the leaked press render below seems to conceal something (probably the time and date on Sense, which usually hints at the announcement date -- or some other sensitive data), we can definitely recognize the phone, this time, with the Verizon logo apparently replacing HTC's own branding at the bottom of ...

    With smart watches being the next cool thing, it is just normal for OEMs to be a part of the game. It's no longer just Pebble, but other notable manufacturers, like Samsung, for instance, offer their takes on wearables. Apple is expected to bring a smartwatch, and we've also been hearing rumors of an HTC device that will be more than "just a gimmick"; sadly, it has missed the MWC show floor. According to recent reports, the Taiwanese manufacturer does indeed have a smartwatch, tentatively called the HTC One Wear. Late August/early September is what the report claims as a possible ...
