    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 ...

    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 last few years have not been the best for HTC. Its market share, revenues, and profits have all been sliding while its largest competitor, Samsung, has been raking in more sales, profits, and the like. Such has been the case for most smartphone manufacturers (who are not Apple and Samsung, of course), but HTC's journey, in particular, makes for an interesting story. Despite its several fumbles and missteps since 2011, it still has a massive, die-hard following around its smartphones. Whether it's due to the elegant hardware and design, ultra high standards in build quality, or simply ...

    They're not just summoned from whole cloth, and not everyone can afford the Vienna Boys Choir, so where do ringtones come from? A great many artists and musicians, actually, and we talk to a particularly talented one on today's podcast. Ali Spagnola joins us in the feature segment to share tales of music making, drinking games, and just how one gets banned from Michigan – and on the way we learn exactly how a pair of ringtones called "Radiation" and "Robots for Everyone" found themselves on millions of smartphones the world over. Before that, Adam Z. Lein stops by to tell us all about ...

    Last week's launch of the HTC One mini 2 brought us a brief reprieve from the One M8 Prime rumors that had been otherwise dominating chatter about the manufacturer, but now we're right back in the saddle, ready to start talking about what's coming from this rumored upgrade to the One M8. Yesterday we looked at some possible specs and the claim that the phone could be constructed from some pretty high-end materials. Today we're checking out what might be coming from the M8 Prime's camera, looking at a render that depicts some significant changes to the Duo Camera arrangement. The big deal ...

    With last year's One, HTC really made a point to place design, material choice, and build quality at the forefront of its smartphone offerings; say what you will about how wise a choice UltraPixel may have been, but it's hard to argue that the One (or any of its successors) is anything other than a phone that looks and feels great. Where does HTC go from here, though? Is there any way to bump things up a notch and make a premium-feeling smartphone even more desirable? That's what we're wondering about this morning, as a series of new HTC M8 Prime rumors discuss the manufacturer's hardware ...

    What exactly qualifies as a "remix?" How deluded do you have to be to believe in all these "Prime" rumors? Why are we so transfixed by the notion of lasers on smartphones, and so easily taken in by a smartphone commercial, if it's shot like a trailer for Inception? We tackle these questions, and the biggest announcement section in the history of the podcast, in episode 096 of the Pocketnow Weekly. No, that's not bragging – it's just an unavoidable symptom of a month packed with unboxings, hands-ons, product launches, and reviews (both forthcoming and already-published). But even in the ...

    What's next in the running from HTC and its smartphones? We've been talking a lot about a One M8 mini/One mini 2 that could be right around the corner, and a little further down the line we might get some kind of M8 Prime with a higher-res 2K display than the 1080p panel currently on the One M8. We've also got a possible new Butterfly and a Windows Phone 8.1 model we're looking forward to – all in all, we're looking at quite a few phones in the pipeline, and this isn't even touching on anything like Desire handsets. But now we're picking up on word of a device that might be yet another ...

    While telling you about HTC's plans for profitability just a few moments ago, we mentioned what the smartphone market might look like as we start moving into the trailing end of the year: Apple will have a new iPhone (or two), Samsung will probably have a new Note out, and somewhere along the line we might even see this 2K resolution GS5 that continues to be rumored. But last year HTC's year-end offerings were a little weak, giving us the somewhat-confused One max; can it manage better in 2014? It might have a fighting shot if this next rumor is at all close to the money, claiming that HTC ...
