Wow. Such yuneeq. Very metale. Fone.
I’m basically just using this as an excuse to attack every manufacturer going with the same and the same and the same after so many years of sticking with these aluminium chassis or even slapping a couple panes of Gorilla Glass onto them. It’s what we praise as “beautiful fit-and-finish” with great “feel in hand.” Every. Single. Time. And we’re not just talking about the iPhone and HTC, here; even when the build poses a risk to its own integrity — OnePlus X, you’re a real special case — we will [...]
Watch today’s Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Android 4.3, and a unique feature that’s being leaked and that could make your experience with notifications much better. HTC disappoints us next as the HTC One S has just loss all promises for Sense 5 or any other software update. The Budget iPhone makes headlines next as we’ve got the first leaked photos of the color options you might get. Verizon and Motorola take the spotlight next as the Droid Ultra smartphone line-up just got teased. We end today’s show talking about Motorola again, this time because the Moto [...]
I’ve turned an HTC One X into one of my two daily drivers for the last two or three weeks. Not that I didn’t enjoy the company of my old Galaxy Nexus, but I’m on the list of people that really do enjoy HTC Sense. I know it’s either a love-or-hate relationship for many of you, but Sense is the best of many worlds for me. It has all the social integration I love about Windows Phone 7, all the polish that attracts me about iOS, and it’s running on the fluidity and openness that I’ve come to enjoy about Android.
Sadly, the year is 2012. For many of you [...]
WiFi calling is a great resource for T-Mobile subscribers, not only letting them save on plan minutes when completing their calls using a WiFi connection instead of a cellular signal, but also letting calls penetrate deep into buildings where cell reception could otherwise be spotty at best. That feature’s present on HTC’s latest Android for the carrier, its One S. Problem is, there’s apparently a power management bug tied to WiFi calls on the One S, and it’s threatening to drain users’ batteries.
The exact details of this problem haven’t been [...]
HTC’s One S is now available on T-Mobile, rocking its Snapdragon S4 processor. You could always pick one up from the carrier for about $200 on-contract, but why spend money you don’t have to? To welcome the One S to its stable, T-Mobile has a contest going during which it will give away eighty-two HTC One S smartphones.
In addition to the brand-new hardware, T-Mobile will hook winners up with some free cellular service, which makes the contest all the more appealing. Most winners will just get a free month, but one or two lucky winners will receive a year’s [...]
We knew the details thanks to T-Mobile who told the world proudly that the HTC One S will be available starting today. If you’ve seen our review of the international HTC One S and our hands-on with the Magenta variant and you liked what you saw, you can now grab your unit from T-Mobile.
It goes for $199.99 after a $50.00 mail-in rebate card and upon signing a two-year contract on qualifying Classic Plan. Don’t let the image mislead you: the Beats by Dr. Dre headphones are sold separately. However, you get a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 [...]
HTC and T-Mobile finally revealed the retail launch plans for the One S last week, looking to kick-off sales this Wednesday, April 25. Just like AT&T stores with the Nokia Lumia 900 last week, it looks like some retailers may similarly be jumping the gun on the HTC One S, with reports of the phone already showing up in some stores.
Apparently Walmart couldn’t resist the allure of the One S for another few days, and at least some of its locations have been adding the phone to their display lines already. Now, the important question is whether or not the store has [...]
You might recall that we’re not particularly fond of HTC Sense 4.0, because in a lot of places, it holds back Ice Cream Sandwich, which is already elegant, functional, and fast. With Android’s fantastic ability to change the launcher (meaning: the entire homescreen/app drawer experience), those running Sense 4.0 (or any undesireable stock launcher) can opt for something better. We’ve shown you options in the past such as Laucher Pro, ADW Launcher EX, Go Launcher EX, and others. Today, we’re going to add a new one to the list: Apex Launcher, which is free in [...]
We got to take a quick look at the new T-Mobile HTC One S tonight at a fun T-Mobile launch event. The One S comes to T-Mobile on April 25 for $199 on contract with a $50 rebate. It features HTC Sense 4.0, which is a lot more lightweight than previous versions of Sense, as well as the Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android. The One S also features Beats audio technology and a great camera with some cool features like a 5 frames per second high speed shutter mode that’s accessible by just holding down the shutter button. Plus both movie recording in photo shutter buttons are [...]
It’s been looking increasingly likely in recent weeks that T-Mobile would eventually announce the HTC One S coming to its network on April 25. With a press event scheduled for today, and one unabashedly featuring the One S, at that, we were hoping that we’d get to hear the carrier formally reveal its launch plans for the ICS Android. With the off-contract version of the phone appearing on T-Mobile’s website overnight, the announcement seemed all but certain. It’s still a few minutes until T-Mobile’s One S event kicks-off, but the carrier has jumped the gun [...]
