HTC Grip launch postponed, deferred to later this year

People were looking forward to taking a look at the first wearable that HTC was launching, the HTC Grip fitness band, a partnership with sports brand Under Armour. First introduced back at the World Mobile Congress last March, the Grip was supposed to be the first in a line of health-related wearable devices, but it seems that the Taiwanese OEM has changed its mind and would like to go back to the drawing board instead of releasing something that may have been half-baked.

Looking back to Q1 of 2015 and AnTuTu’s revelation of which smartphones reigned their benchmarking databases for the early part of the year, we see Samsung’s dynamic duo – the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge – dominating those rankings, with HTC’s One M9 not so far back at third spot.

Latest version of Snapdragon 810 used in HTC One M9

There's so much to say about the issues the HTC One M9 is facing. HTC's latest flagship has been under fire for a charging issue which we thought was Google Photos fault at first but it's not. When it first came out, there was also a camera issue which was quickly resolved after an update. And because of that, HTC believes that it can beat the Galaxy S6 and the iPhone 6 as the company recently proven in a series of tests.

Europe to finally receive the HTC One M9+, still no word on US launch

A few months ago, HTC quickly rolled out the One M9's bigger sibling. This One M9+ impressed the market but unfortunately, we were told it would only be released in Asia.

Mugen extended battery case for HTC One M9 gives twice the charge

The HTC One M9 is one of the better reviewed new flagships from this year's batch. But one of the most common complaints about this is that the battery life isn't all that great. So unless you want to constantly be looking for a wall socket to charge your device when you're on the go, your best bet would be to either get a power bank or to just get one of those battery cases, like the Mugen Power 3700mAh Extended Battery Case.

Android top in the US but not Europe; Galaxy S6 sales boost Samsung

We've been wondering if the good reviews of Samsung's new flagship, the Galaxy S6 will translate to sales to help boost the previous smartphone champs. The number (at least from Kantar) are in, and it looks like they have indeed helped the OEM regain top spot in the US, becoming the third best-selling smartphone in the country, just after the iPhone 6 and Samsung's previous flagship, the Galaxy S5. Android has also continued to regain the top spot in the US when it comes to sales, but in Europe's big five, it's still a no go.
