    The down side to success is the pressure to keep on succeeding. HTC's 2013 flagship, the original HTC One (M7), defined "successful" in nearly every way. We awarded it one of the highest review scores we'd ever bestowed on a smartphone, a reception mirrored by most of the tech community. "Bravo HTC," we said of its stellar industrial design and innovative new features. Our opinion stayed much the same when the Sprint version came to town ("It's a phone that does it all – and does it very well"). Pocketnow readers selected the HTC One as their top smartphone of 2013. And the accolades ...

    The HTC M8 leaks again, just as we were wondering what else is there to say at the event that would surprise us. This time around, following up on yesterday's hands-on video leaked (in German), we're seeing the M8 being compared to its predecessor, the 2013 flagship, the M7. Embedded below, for your viewing pleasure, is a video coming from TechSmartt on YouTube. The comparison looks at similarities and differences in design, hardware, software, and performance. The official unveiling event happens later in the day, but this video should get you through the waiting. Enjoy all nine minutes ...

    We truly live in an amazing time. We have some of the most technologically advanced consumer electronics known to man, and we carry them around in our pockets! Although processors and GPUs have progressed at an almost alarming rate, one vital component has not kept up: the battery. Doing anything with our smartphones and tablets requires that they're "awake" -- the processor, RAM, and who knows what else has to be warmed up and consuming power to check email or get notifications. Today's processors can quickly scale from just a few hundred MHz up to a few thousand fairly quickly, and they ...

    We knew it was coming sooner or later and with HTC's New York (and London) event, it is happening today. The Taiwanese phone-maker is one more key player that decided to move away from trade shows making Mobile World Congress just a tiny little bit unexciting and poor. The HTC M7/One has been rumored for quite some time and we're finally getting an announcement at 10:00 AM EST. The 2013 Android flagship made in Taiwan will be unveiled and we're giving you our first impressions about the phone, in real-time, as it happens. Check out our live hangout to be on top of news and hear our ...

    HTC has really been saturating social media with teases for its February 19 event and the expected HTC One reveal, and you already may have seen it post images of a metallic slab and close-up eyeball, both showing glimpses of its new phone and promoting the event's date. Today there's a new one going out, showing a grouping of camera lenses and accessories. Like the others, that February 19 date is hidden in here as well, with 2, 9, and 13 spaced-out around the lens's rim. But besides simply teasing that date, can we read anything else from this? Despite the logo being blurred-out, this is ...

    It's seeming more and more likely that HTC's M7 will make its debut at the HTC One, and with just five days to go until the company's press event, the full story on the phone will be available very soon. In the meantime, some new rumors have arrived to help give us an idea of just how the smartphone will ultimately go up for sale, where you'll find it, and how much you could hope to pay. Last week, we saw some evidence suggesting that the handset could come to Europe on March 8, but today we look at its US release. According to this new info, T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T could get the ...

    Still not sure which side to take in the HTC M7/HTC One controversy? While HTC itself seems to keep using M7, as we've from CEO Peter Chou himself, and seen referenced in the directory structure for the new teaser ads on the company's site, there's been growing support for One since we first heard the name rumored, seeing it pop-up on a UAProf listing. Now, we're still not willing to dismiss the idea that the handset could arrive under both names, possibly in different regions, but today we get some new evidence in favor of the HTC One, thanks to an eagle-eyed sports fan. At the Celtic ...

    Camera quality is just one of the many metrics we use to gauge the overall capacity of a smartphone. Alongside performance, battery life, display quality, storage capacity, memory and a host of connectivity and sensors, the camera is one of the more important qualities of a smartphone. Specifications and performance are quickly approaching a threshold where reasonable and modest have been replaced with exceptional and excessive … in a good way. Only two areas are in dire need of improvement: battery life and image sensing. Battery life has met its fair share of hurdles over the years. ...

    Rarely has the "lull" between trade shows given us so much to talk about. We kicked off the week with an exciting announcement welcoming two new members to the Pocketnow team, and since then we've barely been able to keep news, editorials, and videos on the front page long enough to read them. This feed is on fire. From ever-strengthening rumors about the HTC M7 and Samsung Galaxy S IV, to interviews with newcomers like Jolla, to new looks at old friends with BlackBerry 10, to modding and jailbreaking today's top smartphones, we've gotten a lot done since the last episode of the Weekly, ...

    HTC continues its ongoing mission to keep building up excitement for its February 19 event, where it will almost certainly reveal its new Android flagship, the HTC M7 (or possibly the HTC One). Its latest salvo is a countdown clock, ticking away until that event's set to get started, highlighted with some short teaser videos of the new hardware. Digging into the page's code reveals it's pulling these clips from an "m7teaser" directory, and HTCSource managed to extract the set and upload them to YouTube for our watching convenience. While these shots are exceedingly brief, what little we ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the iOS 6.1.1 update and what it means for the Jailbreak community. Then we move to competing grounds and talk about Android 4.2.2, which just got released. The Galaxy S IV continues, though the rumors of a Galaxy S IV mini have us more skeptical than pleased. Then we talk about Nokia's recent leak of a probable tablet coming soon. We end today's show with a minor load of confusion, as now we can't figure out what the final design of the HTC M7 will be. All this and more after the break. Stories: - iOS 6.1.1 Could Arrive Very Soon, Fixing 3G ...

    We've heard HTC's Peter Chou talk about how the company needs to get smarter with how it advertises its smartphones, and based on the teasers it's been releasing over the past couple weeks for its upcoming February 19 event, it just might have this buzz-building routine down. The latest isn't quite so eye-catching as last week's but it may just give us our first official look at HTC's next flagship. Like we said, this is pretty far removed from that weird "Alive Soon!" image that came out a week ago, and at first glance, it's just parroting the already-revealed date. Take a close look at ...

    Last week, a rumor suggested that the HTC M7, the company's 1080p Android that we're hoping will be publicly revealed next week on February 19, would actually arrive as the HTC One. That info came from a very reliable tipster, but any rumor is a lot nicer when you can add a little confirmation to help back it up, and now we have what looks like some pretty compelling evidence in support of the HTC One name, in the form of a UAProf file from HTC itself. The UAProf for HTC's model PN071 clearly identifies the handset as the HTC One. The presence of specs like a 1920 x 1080 resolution makes ...

    There are few markets in the world that host as vicious competition as the mobile market here in the United States. Every move by every company is literally do or die. In just four years, we have witnessed a handful of mobile companies fail – some new companies that couldn't find a foothold and older companies that couldn't keep up with the changing of the tides. We are only about a month and a half into 2013, yet the competition is as heated as ever. One of the largest trade shows of the year, where we saw several high-end 1080p handsets and even a gargantuan 6.1-inch smartphone, is a ...

    Our first look at the then-HTC-M7 showed us a phone that appeared drastically different from the hardware we subsequently saw in follow-up renders and pics. The handset featured extensive grille designs on both the top and bottom of its face, reminiscent of the sort of thing we see at the top of the 8X, but far larger, possibly suggesting stereo speakers. While that layout hadn't appeared since, it's now back courtesy of tipster evleaks, just a few days after he claimed that the M7 will actually arrive as the HTC One. In the newly leaked render, we see that same old design married to a ...

    The HTC M7 is probably one of the most anticipated phones to be announced by the Taiwanese manufacturer -- hopefully on February 19 -- and it's been all over the internet lately in forms of rumors, speculations, and leaks. Recently we found out that the phone might not be called the "M7" after all, that being just a codename. HTC One seems to be rumored as the final product name and a picture taken by a certain HTC One's camera has surfaced on Flickr. The largest uploaded version is 1158 x 2048 large but this might just be a crop, a resized version, or the "ultrapixel" technology rumored ...

    Could HTC's One series of Androids, started last year with the One X, One S, and One V, still have some life left in it? If phones like the Butterfly and Droid DNA had you thinking that the company might have started moving on to some other naming strategy, and all the rumors of the M7 only seemed to cement that feeling, a new rumor out today might just get you to think differently, making the claim that the M7 will launch as none other than the HTC One. This info comes to us from tipster evleaks, who has been pretty accurate with his reporting. Now granted, his earlier leaked image of M7, ...

    Even if it takes six Skype calls to make a podcast happen, we're gonna do it for you folks, because that's just the kind of guys we are. And it's a good thing, too; while the news cycle has calmed down somewhat in the wake of last week's big BlackBerry event, there's still plenty to talk about from the worlds of Android and Windows Phone, from rumors and speculation to ... well, no, just rumors and speculation, really. But it's scintillating stuff, especially if you're into things named "M7" and "Nokia Tablet." All that, plus listener mail and a heaping helping of Joe Levi's robot voice, ...

    The HTC M7 will indeed be called the HTC M7, at least according to recent reports and leaks. The internal document above, coming allegedly from Phone House, appears to confirm that the HTC M7 will land on March 8, at least in France, for 649.99 EUR SIM-free, which is around $880. The specs on the sheet seem to match those which were rumored previously: a 1080p screen of 4.7-inches, 13-megapixel camera a the back, 32GB internal storage, 4G capability, NFC, Beats Audio as well as Sense 5 running on top of Android. We're expecting to see this phone on February 19, as well as trying to steal ...

    We're less than two weeks away from when HTC has scheduled its next press event, when we're hoping that the company will unveil the M7 we've been hearing so many rumors about lately, as well as catching a brief glimpse of it in the hands of company CEO Peter Chou. As we eagerly await that event and the news it brings, HTC has been sending out a new teaser ad to the German press and, well... it's more than a little odd. The depiction of what appears to be a human heart bonding with a printed circuit board promises that HTC's next big product will soon be "alive". While the proximity to the ...

Then we talk about HTC as new rumors have the company bringing more than just another cool name for the future camera technology on the M7. The iPad is next as we found a "Radio Buy Button" we're trying to make some sense out of. Then we talk about the rumors of Apple working on an iPhablet, and yes, we dismissed it just as quick as we began. We end today's show talking about Amazon Coins and why it doesn't make sense.
