Looking for a high end handset? Chances are you've eyeballed Galaxy devices from Samsung and iPhone models from Apple. Lest anyone forget, HTC is also a player in the performance smartphone segment, and to tempt users towards its One M9 handset, the company is offering a generous $100 in Google Play credit with purchase.Yes, we meant to put two zeros in that figure -- one hundred dollars, in other words. That's not an insignificant amount of credit, which you can use to purchase movies, music, games, and more. The only catch is that you have to purchase the device direct from HTC, which is going to be a deal killer for many people.By going through HTC, you aren't able to take advantage of any...

HTC’s needed a big hit to reinvigorate its efforts in the smartphone world. Once a dominant player in the early days of Google’s Android operating system, HTC has seen its smartphone fortunes crumble amidst rival Android maker Samsung and profit king Apple. When you throw in Chinese powerhouses like Huawei and Xiaomi, HTC’s outlook in the smartphone market has become even cloudier. HTC was supposed to turn things around with the One M9 flagship smartphone (read the HotHardware review here), the follow-up to last year One M8. However, consumers have been slow to warm up to HTC’s newest flagship. That less than enthusiastic welcome for the One M9 is being felt by HTC, with the company revising... Read more...

Robert Downey Jr. melted many hearts last week when he showed up as Tony Stark to deliver a customized, bionic arm to a seven-year-old fan. The video went viral and showed how the thoughtfulness of others can make a lasting impression on a child. Today, however, Robert Downey Jr. is stepping back into his role as HTC spokesman, and the results are definitely more mixed. Ever since stepping into the role in 2013, Robert Downey Jr.’s commercials have been met with puzzled reactions and this year sees the arrival of nine new commercial “shorts.” All of the commercials are color-coded (i.e. white, black, purple, green), cover a wide range of genres (comedy, fantasy, horror), and all of them are extremely,...

HTC’s recently unveiled One M9 will be one of the most sought after flagship smartphones this year. While it arguably doesn’t have the design panache of a device like the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, it does bring with it a Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a microSD slot (something that the new Galaxy S6/S6 Edge can no longer claim), a 20MP rear camera, and a generous 2840 mAh battery. If you’d like to get your hands on a One M9 without paying a single penny, we have something that might be right up your alley. HTC this week announced a new U.S.-only contest that lasts through March 24 at 11:59 PM PT. Besides the requirement of being a legal resident of the U.S.,... Read more...
We learned last week that HTC plans to launch its next generation flagship — whether you call it the One (M9) or “Hima” — at the 2015 Mobile World Congress on March 1. Yesterday, it was revealed that a new smartwatch would be launched alongside the new flagship in March. Nowhere Else, which has a pretty strong track record when it comes to smartphone leaks, today has two new photos of next generation One (M9). Unlike an earlier render that broke cover earlier this month, the new photos show a device that sticks very close to the design language seen in the current One (M8). The bezels are slightly narrower and the camera area is now square versus the circular on the current smartphone. Otherwise,... Read more...
2013 saw the release of the One (M7), and the One (M8) replaced that flagship in 2014. 2015 will soon be upon us, and HTC is once again preparing to launch a new flagship. According to the folks from @upleaks, the next generation smartphone is being developed under the codename “Hima”. Like the rumored Samsung Galaxy S6, Hima will feature an octa-core, 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB of RAM. Four of the cores will operate at 2GHz, while the remaining four will be clocked at 1.5GHz. Interestingly, the Hima will stick with a 5” display and the resolution will remain pegged at 1080p. With most other smartphone manufacturers jumping to QHD (2560x1440) displays for their flagship... Read more...
