Five things HTC’s Sense 6.0 does better than Android

Stock Android is great. I’m a big fan, and am typically pretty critical of OEM overlays, eschewing them for Nexus at just about every turn. With the HTC One (M8), you’ll get Sense 6.0, which is HTC’s latest take on Android. One of the first Android skins, Sense has come a long way from the clunky blanket it once was. Mature and sensible, there are some things we think Sense does just a bit better than Android proper.

HTC One (M8) Google Play edition initial hands-on

Just as we saw with the HTC One (M7) last year, there are a variety of models of the HTC One (M8) available. You will be able to find the branded carrier models as well as the Unlocked and Developer Edition models direct from HTC. And as you'll see discussed here in this post, the HTC One (M8) Google Play edition (GPe). This one brings Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat without Sense 6, but it is not quite as pure as some of the earlier GPe handsets.

HTC One Max starting to receive Android 4.4.2 update

The HTC One Max for Verizon is receiving the latest Android update. As expected, the update is starting to roll out today, and is expected to take a few weeks to complete. While users are getting the latest in Android, they aren’t getting a Sense update just yet.

HTC’s UFocus for the One (M8), hands-on

With the HTC One (M8), camera hardware doesn’t always lead to better shots in the moment. With the second camera gathering info about the shot as you take it, some added post-production work is available. With UFocus, we can go back to our pics and change the focal point, erasing mistakes we may have made the first time around. Is UFocus a feature, or a failure? We go hands-on to find out.

Verizon HTC One (M8) initial hands-on

We now have a Verizon HTC One (M8) in for review. The handset arrived earlier this morning, and while we obviously aren't going to post a full review after having the phone for only a few hours -- we did want to share some images and some first impression thoughts. Of course, we can also touch on some of the Verizon specifics that you'll find (should you decide to purchase this model). That said, read on for our first impressions of the Verizon HTC One (M8).

HTC’s Q1 2014 earnings show net loss, revenue dip

HTC has released unaudited financial results for the first quarter of 2014. In their report, we see that the resurgent Android OEM still has quite a bit of work to do, as they had a net loss of NT$1.88 billion (about $62 million). Revenue was also down a touch to NT$33.12 billion, or just over $1 billion.

HTC One M8 gets a Google Play Edition conversion process

Many might have been enamored by HTC latest flagship but don't really give a care for the custom software running on the HTC One M8. Trying to combine the best of all words, some more enterprising developers over at XDA have come up with ways to get a Google Play Edition on the smartphone experience without having to pay more for an unlocked GPE device.

comScore: Android still king, Motorola and HTC falter

The latest comScore figures are out, and show little change in the order of smartphone OEMs with regard to market share in the US. Of interest is the gains and losses some have made, with one notable company having dropped off on a significant way. Don’t worry, though — Android is still on top.

HTC One (M7) drops to $1 with Best Buy

The shiny new gadget may be the HTC One (M8), but that isn't to say the previous model shouldn't be considered. The 2013 model year HTC One is still a rather capable handset, and thanks to a limited time offer with Best Buy -- it is currently selling with an attractive price point.
