There was a time when 5-inch and larger smartphones were scoffed at.  The term "phablet" was coined and holding one of these things up to your head typically meant a bit of ridicule was in order.  However, as devices got thinner, lighter and ever more sleek, the 5-inch smartphone has become a hot commodity with devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note II taking off towards stratospheric sales projections.  Recently HTC jumped in on the action with the launch of the Droid DNA for the Verizon network; offering a quad-core Snapdragon S4 SoC under the hood, the latest Android Jelly Bean operating system, an absolutely killer, gorgeous 5-inch IPS display with a full 1080p capable native...

In this special episode of HotHardware’s Two and Half Geeks webcast, Marco takes us through a system build of a killer new Gaming PC built with top-notch Corsair components that we'll be giving away to our lucky “Back to School” contest winner JOMA! A couple of episodes back, I (Marco) said that I was so jazzed to assemble this system that I promised it would be the cleanest one I’ve built yet. I’m happy to report that I pulled it off (at least I think I did!). Assembling a group of parts that were all designed to work together definitely makes the process much easier. Kudos to Corsair for putting the effort in to design components that cater so well to the enthusiast... Read more...

It's no secret that HTC has had a rough time competing with other big name smartphone manufacturers in the last couple of years. It looked like the company might be turning things around with its One series and the EVO 4G LTE for Sprint, but then the company got hit with another delay thanks to a U.S. Customs review. The EVO 4G LTE is finally here though, and Sprint customers can finally pick up this new, highly anticipated smartphone. The HTC EVO 4G LTE sports many of the high-end features you'd want in a smartphone today including Android 4.0, a 4.7-inch HD display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, and 4G LTE connectivity.

The HTC One X generated quite a buzz when the smartphone was first announced at Mobile World Congress earlier this year. The initial announcement featured information and specifications for two versions of the phone, an international model built around NVIDIA’s quad-plus-one core Tegra 3 SoC (system on a chip) and a U.S. model powered by a dual-core Qualcomm chip. The lack of a quad-core model in the U.S. left some observers feeling a bit flat, but by going with the Qualcomm MSM 8960 HTC was able to support LTE in the U.S. Additionally; the MSM 8960 isn’t like other dual-core SoCs currently on the market. The MSM 8960 features Qualcomm's Krait microarchitecture, with an Adreno 225... Read more...
Touted as America's first glasses-free 3D 4G device, the HTC EVO 3D features a 4.3-inch, qHD (Quarter High Definition) 3D display as well as dual rear-facing cameras that can capture 3D images and video.
