    The Nexus program from Google is in an awkward position right now. Rumors of a Nexus 6 and Nexus 8 have come and gone, along with the possibility that the former wouldn't ever get to see the light of day. Android Silver has been another hot topic, only confusing things more, so it's comforting to finally see something concrete come up again. Today, the Nexus 9 has broke cover, HTC's newest Nexus device. First things first, this is likely the tablet we previously referred to as the Nexus 8 -- everything lines up with rumors of that device (it's made by HTC, and runs on an NVIDIA chip). ...

    Remember how excited you were? Think back. Think way back to February in the year two thousand fourteen - seems like ages ago doesn't it - and how exciting it was for Samsung to be launching its newest flagship device, just under a year after the GS4 hit the stage. Are you harkening? Do you feel the thrill? The excitement? You don't? Well good, you shouldn't. Because it all meant absolutely zero, zip, zilch. That's right, it's 'Prime' time people. No, not the time when your favorite show - Dancing with the American Ninja Idol Warriors is on. No, it's time for Samsung to upend the apple ...

    Back in May, I asked an interesting question, one many have probably pondered themselves, "Will your next phone be bigger or smaller?" For whatever reason, in today's smartphone market, "bigger" has nearly become synonymous with "better". Each year, every smartphone manufacturer's flagships are larger than the previous model. The Galaxy S III had a 4.8-inch display; the Galaxy S4 had a 5-inch display, and the Galaxy S5 now has a 5.1-inch display. The same trend is also found in the already oversized Galaxy Note brand. The original Note handset was 5.3-inches, followed by the 5.5-inch ...

    HTC and LG, individually, have created some truly astounding smartphones this year. HTC's One M8 has been the recipient of endless praise for its stellar design and build quality, beautiful 1080p screen, BoomSound speakers, and quite nice software. LG's G3, since its announcement, has also been a popular phone among enthusiast talk and spec sheet comparisons. How do the two compare in the real world, though? Do the G3's killer specifications and QHD display make the One M8 look like old news? Or does the One M8 come out with an unexpected victory? Watch the below HTC One M8 vs LG G3 ...

    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 ...
