    Despite Samsung's sheer domination in the Android space and HTC's shrinking revenues and market share, the rivalry between the two giant handset makers continues to heat up. Last year, the HTC One and Samsung's Galaxy S 4 were two seriously impressive smartphones. Sure, the Galaxy S 4 was a bit more of a marginal upgrade over the S III than we were expecting, but the phone sold in droves and lived up to nearly every expectation. HTC's flagship One handset also lived up to the hype, becoming the recipient of multiple awards; it was named best smartphone the year in GSM Association's 2014 ...

    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 ...

    Easily one of the most anticipated Androids – if not smartphones, period – to cross our path in recent memory, the all new 2014 HTC One has kept us fascinated over the course of these past weeks and months, starring in leak upon leak and fueling waves of speculation and rumor. Today we put all those whispers and guesswork behind us, as HTC takes to the stage to formally announce its latest flagship: the HTC One (M8). As expected, the new One features a 5.0-inch 1080p display, runs a Snapdragon 801 SoC at 2.3GHz, and has 2GB of RAM. The phone will be available in 16GB and 32GB storage ...

    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 ...

    The new HTC One may not be launching until tomorrow, but at this point, you'd be excused for not realizing it wasn't already out. As if the unstoppable torrent of leaks hasn't been enough, we're now seeing carriers themselves jump the gun, and Rogers up in Canada has already put its seemingly complete new One listing online. Interestingly, the phone is referred to here as the “HTC One (M8),” just like it was in a Verizon leak from last week. While the “all new One” label that's been bouncing around has seemed certain enough, we were surprised to see the phone's codename M8 show up, ...

    Verizon is clearly excited about tomorrow's launch of the new 2014 HTC One: we've seen leaked images of the phone's packaging itself, accessories, and promotional material, all with Verizon branding. Those promo graphics also suggested that the carrier might have the phone up for sale just moments after its unveiling, mirroring similar claims from UK retailers. But then over the weekend we started hearing that maybe Verizon might be alone in the US when it comes to this early access to the new One, and that while it would start selling the handset tomorrow, other US carriers wouldn't get ...

    Twenty hours and counting: HTC's all new One is nearly here. On this, the last day before the smartphone's debut, we're not expecting much in the way of big surprises. Certainly, considering how many leaks have revealed the smartphone in staggering detail thus far (and we must be up around a few dozen by now), it would be really something for anything to come in out of left field at this point. That means that instead of learning much that's new, we're instead seeing confirmation of things we may have heard earlier: like after all this talk about the new One's specs, the phone snags a few ...

    No more counting the days until the arrival of the all new HTC One; right now, we're counting hours. And in just about 23 of them, we're going to see the phone ushered-in officially as HTC's latest flagship. We'll be on the floor in NYC, bringing you the latest updates as they arrive. By the looks of things, we still might have some last-minute surprises arriving to keep this last day of rumors interesting, like that new hands-on video we shared with you overnight. The latest to catch our eye are some all new One benchmarks, painting the picture of an utter powerhouse. Right now, over at ...

    March 25 is the day HTC is expected to release the 2014 follow-up for the HTC One, and even without today's leak, we were wondering what else is there that HTC can say in order to surprise us. The phone, and its features, related aspects, have been leaked extensively over the past couple of weeks, but today we're seeing a full 14-minute video hands-on of the yet unannounced device. It is German, so if you don't happen to speak the language, you'll have to settle for the video footage itself. Apparently the phone is being called "HTC One" and not "The New HTC One", at least that's what's ...

    Saying that Verizon was late to the HTC One party back in 2013 is a slight understatement, as the flagship made its way to Big Red months after landing on its competitors' line-up. However, this year, we've seen a lot of 2014 HTC One leaks, and, from those, there were many involving Verizon, whether that's renders with the phone wearing the carrier logo, a retail box, or the most recent leak. There might be an explanation to that, as, according to a recent report citing "trusted" sources, Verizon will have a "couple of weeks" of exclusivity for the 2014 flagship. The phone will reportedly ...

    By this point we don't have a ton of outstanding questions about the all new HTC One the company plans to introduce at next Tuesday's launch event, but one that's managed to hang around concerns just when the handset will be available for sale. We've heard from one UK retailer that it expects to have the phone in its stores just minutes after HTC's event, but is this going to be the case everywhere? Would US carriers similarly scramble to get the new One into users' hands, or would they take their sweet time? While we still don't have any official answers about US availability, we do have ...

    Planning to keep HTC's all new One launch countdown open in a dedicated browser tab for the next four days? Already putting your cash together on the chance that these announcements of launch-day retail availability pan out, and the phone could be in your hands by this time next week? We don't blame you for your excitement, and this evening we've got a couple new finds to tease you with, as we see Verizon getting its ducks in a row for the new One's launch. The pic you see up top was already pretty cropped by the time it came our way, but while we don't get a good look at the case itself, ...

    We're finally looking at matter of days – not months, not weeks – until HTC takes the stage and holds up the all new 2014 HTC One for us to finally get an official look. Even with as much that's already come to light about the smartphone, we're still itching to see this puppy formally launch, and we're sure that Android fans the world around feel much the same way. When the time comes next Tuesday, we'll have Pocketnow crew on the ground to bring you first-hand coverage from the company’s New York launch event, but if you're also interested in seeing some of the action for yourself, ...

    When it comes to the 2014 all new HTC One, there's not a lot lot we don't know by this point (due in no small part to the phone leaking like it's Deepwater Horizon – too soon?). Earlier this week, we touched upon a few of these outstanding mysteries, and one of this bigger ones concerned the phone's dual cameras – we saw a number of optical specs mentioned in various leaks, but the actuall resolutions of those dual rear cameras continued to elude us. Would this be another four megapixel situation? As the days count down to the new One making its debut, we start to get some answers, ...

    Inbox Zero. It's become something of a myth in the Pocketnow Weekly recording studio ever since we started actively courting listener feedback all those months ago. Skip a listener-mail section here, another one there, and before you know it you've got a mountain of mail it'd take a whole episode to get through. So that's just what we're doing. Just like we did on episode 076, we're devoting an entire podcast to your missives. We'll hear from people concerned about dual-SIM stigma, people worried about the future of Apple, and people writing to remind us that the automated home isn't as ...
