    Depending on your perspective, the HTC One is either the biggest Android success story of 2013, or the most overhyped piece of mobile tech since the iPhone. Debate continues to rage between the two camps across our various comment sections, and fanboys being what they are, a resolution seems unlikely anytime soon. One thing is clear, though: a timely HTC One update is critical to the company's success. For our part, we consider the One to be a real home run, both for HTC and for the Android world in general - a fact that will come as no surprise to veteran listeners of the Pocketnow Weekly ...

    As we discussed in the latest episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, the HTC One X with its quad-core Tegra 3 processor, was acting kind of sluggish at times, which is really something people were not expecting to experience on a processor that has four cores (and runs Ice Cream Sandwich with a slimmed down Sense 4.0). HTC however looks to be working hard to eliminate those glitches. According to reports, there's a custom ROM for the International One X, based on a purportedly leaked RUU which contains Sense 4.1 and Android 4.0.4. There's a truckload of improvements and fixes out of ...

    HTC made some smart choices when designing Sense 4.0, going with a look that was a little less overbearing than previous iterations, while keeping what worked. Since it's arrived, we've seen independent efforts to attempt bringing Sense 4.0 to phones from other manufacturers, with varying degrees of success. Today, we look at a major milestone being reached towards getting Sense 4.0 on Samsung's Galaxy S II, with news of the first-such custom ROM booting on the phone's international version. This ROM is the work of the Sense4All team, which has succeeded in getting the phone to boot with ...

    So far we have unboxed the Samsung Galaxy S III and we've compared it with last year's Samsung flagship, the Galaxy S II as its predecessor, but today we're putting it to some more work. It's going to be a tough fight because the Samsung Galaxy S III is up against the hottest HTC phone of the moment, the HTC One X. We're comparing specs, day-to-day/real-life usage/application launch speeds, benchmarks, internet browsing performance, gaming as well as the SLCD2 screen versus the HD Super AMOLED screen. You will also see a 1080p video recording comparison between the two so sit back and ...

    We reviewed the Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE but other future owners were not that lucky; due to an ITC import ban, the phone has been delayed because of Customs' reviews but luckily has been recently released. Some of those who have pre-ordered the device already got their units with a treat but now Sprint is telling everyone about in-store availability. "The next few days" is what Sprint estimates for in-store availability but an exact date has not yet been announced. As soon as the Now Network has some exact information it will let everyone know." While Sprint customers who pre-ordered their ...

    The HTC One X on AT&T got rooted two weeks ago but that didn't allow users to experiment with custom ROMs. Unfortunately HTC didn't offer an official bootloader unlocking solution (just yet) and we've tried to see just why they won't do it. However, this didn't stop (it never stops) the community and its fine developers from working on a solution and they have found one! After you get passed all the warnings in bold that scream "you're doing this at your own risk" you can actually follow a twelve-step walkthrough at the end of which you will hopefully have an unlocked bootloader on ...

    HTC Sense 4.0 is the company's latest iteration for custom UIs which we first met at MWC, as it was launched on the new One line. It is present on all One-series phone which includes the International One X as well as the AT&T version. Of course, playing with Sense 4.0 for a while, beyond the good looks and deep integration, made us realize that there are a couple of things we'd change with the custom UI but the folks over at XDA Developers are not satisfied with the way HTC implemented multi-tasking. It's not necessarily about the webOS-like card look instead of the default Ice Cream ...

    The HTC One X for AT&T and the upcoming HTC EVO 4G LTE for Sprint -- which should hit the shelves this Friday, May 18 -- appear to be delayed by U.S. Customs, according to an official statement released by the Taiwanese manufacturer. The reason behind the delay, according to the wording, is "standard U.S. Customs review of shipments that is required after an ITC exclusion order". "The US availability of the HTC One X and HTC EVO 4G LTE has been delayed due to a standard U.S. Customs review of shipments that is required after an ITC exclusion order. We believe we are in compliance with ...

    The phone we used to know by the codename Golf -- which made an appearance recently -- was rumored to end up on shelves as either the HTC Wildfire C or the HTC Desire C. The Taiwanese phone maker made the device official and the HTC Desire C is their newest Android smartphone with Beats Audio integration. It is marketed by HTC as an accessible device but with a premium design. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC's own Sense 4.0 on top of it. Under the hood there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor clocking in at 600MHz -- of course single-core -- so don't expect stellar ...

    All right everyone, we've still got a few weeks until the Galaxy S III drops, so let's just settle down and keep talking about what's available today. There's still work to be done, 'na mean? One of our contenders is Google's venerable mainstay of America's "most reliable," number-one, most-red-and-black wireless network; the other is a hot young upstart looking to steal the spotlight in the name of Big-Blue-number-two. One bears a proud South Korean heritage, while the other is Taiwan's newest crown jewel! One built of plastic, one of different plastic polycarbonate! Who will claim the ...
