HTC Bliss Makes Blur-Free Appearance, Not as Green as We Thought It’d Be


Wednesday 24th of August 2011 / phandroid.com
The HTC Bliss, while not the most powerful, is certainly one of the more interesting phones we’ve been hearing about. It was first rumored to be a lady-centric device, employing a soothing green hue for its chassis and a charm that’ll light up when a notification is received.While we’re still a bit iffy about the truth of that last one, it definitely does look a bit like what was described to us a while ago. I can’t tell from the photo, but the green hue here is not as strong as we imagined it’d be. It looks to be a very easy light olive green, but we can’t say for sure.Other things in the image confirm that this will have a front-facing camera and judging by the picture of it in the model’s hand (below), it looks like it could be 3.7-4 inches. As for other rumored specs, this one is said to have an 800MHz processor, likely the same one inside the HTC Status/ChaCha. It should also come with Android 2.3 and an older version of HTC Sense.

Another 4.5" Android Phone: HTC Holiday Pictures Leaked - Android Authority


Saturday 27th of August 2011 / androidauthority.com
AT&T is planning on launching their LTE network later this year, and they want to do it in a big way – as big as HTC’s upcoming 4.5″ qHD phone called Holiday. The phone will also have a dual core 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon CPU, just like the one in HTC Sensation. It will also come with 1GB of memory, an 8 MP rear camera (with LED flash), a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0. It will run Android 2.3.4 and the Sense 3.0 UI on top.The HTC Holiday does seem to be a little different than what HTC has released so far, without so many rounded corners, but more like a slab, that looks like a piece of chocolate on the back. I’m not entirely sure why all manufacturers seems to be moving to 4.5″ displays, though. I do realize that with screens being such an important part of our smartphones these days, we want to maximize the viewing space on the device, but isn’t 4.5″ pushing it a little too far for most people?At first I thought these 4.5″ phones would have the buttons included in the user interface, the way they

Leak: Saga Successor to HTC Desire?


Tuesday 01st of February 2011 / androidheadlines.com
HTC is stepping up the competition with Motorola and LG being the first mobile manufacturers to release dual core smartphones. Samsung is also trying to keep up with the pace by announcing the successor to the Galaxy S with dual core processors. HTC launched the G1 which was the first Android product to hit the market and after that, there has been a range of Android-based smartphones. They have it all from the Desire Z with QWERTY keyboard to the  Desire HD with amazing capabilities, and don’t forget their Nexus One.Last week, we reported about catching the successor of  HTC Desire in the wild. Although the design lines seems to be similar to its predecessor, all eyes are on what is inside the body. Well there was another picture of the device released on the Internet, and now we have a name for it as well: the HTC Saga. It does look a bit like the Nexus One but in black. From the picture shown above, it seems that the speaker part of the smartphone is huge, and there is a front-facing video camera. The camera part is going to be good enough for people who want to use Skype

HTC Inspire 4G: Mobile Minute & Quick Impressions


Wednesday 02nd of February 2011 / phandroid.com
We’ve heard all about the HTC Inspire 4G release date and potential pricing so not a whole lot remains uncovered except for the retail packaging many of you want to ever so powerfully rip apart on February 13th. To ease the pain of an almost 2-week wait, check out this 1-minute video from AT&T themselves and a few quick impressions supplied by PC World who apparently have the device in-house:And the relevant PC World pointers:Well, the Inspire doesn’t have a front-facing camera, an HDMI slot or a kickstand. On the other hand, it does have Dolby Mobile HD sound, which is great for watching full-length movies on your phone.This is a bit finicky, but I’m not a huge fan of the way HTC has designed the SIM card and battery slots. Rather making the battery cover one removable piece, you have to remove two different panels to get to these slots. The battery slot was especially hard to remove and put back together. I felt like I had to use some force to get the piece to snap in-which is never a good feeling.The Inspire’s unibody design is otherwise very attractive

HTC One SV Review


Thursday 21st of March 2013 / androidauthority.com
The HTC One SV isn't the most recent addition to HTC's increasingly confusingly named One series of phones, nor is the most talked about. That doesn't mean, however, that it isn't worth a look.It may not have the most eye-poppingly impressive specs, but the HTC One SV is part of a recent trend of very capable yet inexpensive dual-core phones. Does it have what it takes to keep up with its competition? Read on to find out.In a hurry? Check out our video review or jump to the conclusion at the end of the article.Specs1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processorAdreno 305 GPU4.3-inch WVGA display (800 x 480, 217 ppi)1 GB RAM8 GB internal storage, expandable via microSD slot5 MP rear-facing camera /w 1080p video capture1.6 MP front-facing camera /w 720 video capture1,800 mAh replaceable batteryAndroid 4.0.4 Ice Cream SandwichBuild Quality & DesignIt's fairly easy to confuse the HTC One SV with other devices in the same line, such as the One X, and it's likely that this was a conscious decision on HTC's part.

HTC One X+ dummy units begin arriving in Telus retail stores


Thursday 15th of November 2012 / androidauthority.com
Telus announced the upcoming availability of the HTC One X+ smartphone back in early-October. At that time they kept the pricing a secret and offered nothing more than that the handset was coming “this fall.” And well, while we have yet to get anything specific in terms of a release date, we have recently gotten a hint that the release will be happening soon. The hint is dummy units. Yup, dummy units, because there is no better sign that a release is imminent than having smartphone dummy units make an appearance in stores. Of course, officially speaking, Telus still has the One X+ listed as “coming soon.”Otherwise, just as a recap, the HTC One X+ is similar to the One X, just with a bump in the specs. The One X+ will have a 2100 mAh battery, 1.6 megapixel front-facing camera, quad-core 1.7GHz processor and 64GB of internal storage. The handset does not have any microSD card slot though. You can also expect a 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 display, 8 megapixel rear-facing camera, LTE connectivity and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.jQuery(document).on('glossaryTooltipReady',funct

My opinions on the HTC One V


Saturday 15th of September 2012 / androidforums.com
a little history before I start. My first Android was the Samsung Transform with sprint. When Virgin Mobile came out with the Triumph I jumped ship. Probably the worst move I made. In one year I had 6 Triumphs all of them having different defects. Two weeks ago I purchased the EVO V. Three of them defective. Which led me to purchase the One V. First impressions I have to say we're good. I wasn't expecting much for $150. Build quality is fantastic and solid. The camera takes fast and decent pictures. Now one of the things that pushed me to buy the phone is the screen. At this price point you usually get a cruddy screen and lower resolution. Not with the One V. Colors are vibrant and sharp and I don't see any jagged lines or pixelation. It has android 4.0 and sense 4.0. Sense is okay. Beats audio does actually improve the sound so it's a plus cause I plan to use the phone as a mp3 player replacement. Battery life is good but I was expecting better. There are obvious cost cutting measures. For one there is no front facing camera. It doesn't come with an sd card and it has a rather slow

HTC PYRAMID to be the First Honycomb Android Smartphone


Tuesday 15th of March 2011 / androidheadlines.com
HTC Pyramid Honeycomb Phone For Real?A Chinese news source XDA.CN has reported specifications and pictures of the soon to be announced HTC Pyramid. The hardware stats are similar to what has been previously reported it features a 1.2Ghz dual core processor from Qualcomm, 768Mb of RAM, and a 4.3″ Super-LCD display with a (960 x 540) resolution. It is equipped with dual cameras an 8 megapixel rear shooter and a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera.HTC Pyramid OS VersionThe sleek HTC Pyramid is the new flagship Android device from the manufacturer who has been lackluster thus far in 2011. The news source appears to be accurate with the hardware information and the photos appear to be legit, so their report of the phone running Android 3.0 does have some credibility.Google has consistently reported that Honeycomb is designed for tablet use but the opensource OS can be implemented by the manufacturers in many different ways so HTC might be able to pull this one-off.HTC Pyramid Still Coming To T-Mobile?The Pyramid has also been spotted in Australian carrier Telstra’s inventory wh

Verizon's HTC One Max Available Today For $300 And Two Years Of Your Life


Thursday 21st of November 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
If you like massive phones, fingerprint scanners, HTC, and Verizon, today might just be the luckiest day of your life. Why is that, you ask? I'll tell you why! Because the massive HTC One Max is now available on Big Red. See, dreams really do come true. But let's say you're not the huge-phone-fingerprint-scanner-HTC-Verizon-loving type. Let's say you have no idea what the One Max is. No problem, let's just clear that up right now. The One Max is HTC's try at a big ol' phone, coming in with a 5.9-inch screen. Stylistically it looks like a stretched-out HTC One, which includes BOOMSOUND (aka front-facing speakers); however, HTC also cut some corners and took out some of the things that make the One special, like the OIS camera, for example. The Max just has a regular 4UP (UltraPixel) camera. Bummer. However, it does have a nifty fingerprint scanner that scans your fingerprints because reasons, so that's something. If the One Max sounds like a dream trapped inside a cell phone to you, you can head on over to your local Verizon and pick one up for three Benjamins ($300) with a two-year

All New HTC One (M8) camera functions get detailed in new hands on video


Sunday 23rd of March 2014 / feedproxy.google.com
We are only two days away from the unveiling of the All New HTC One (M8) so why not another thorough hands on video review? I have good news and bad news. First, the good news, this video is much better than previous ones. The bad news is that it’s in German, and Google’s closed caption translator isn’t all that effective. Still, you can get a pretty good idea of the new Sense 6.0 and some of the new Duo Camera features.The video is a total of 14:02, but the camera section is pretty thorough and starts at about 5:30. The reviewer says the main lens is 4.1 UltraPixel and the secondary lens is 2MP. This contradicts with an earlier report indicating at least one lens is 16MP. As expected, the front-facing camera comes in at 5MP. The review does show how you can re-focus images in certain spots, and he even shows a tilting 3D effect, which I still don’t get.There is also an extreme battery saver option that changes the UI completely. I would imagine it also turns off a lot of features as well, but that wasn’t clear. Speaking of the battery, it appears The Al
