The HTC One A9 is a fun phone to mock, but as it turns out, it's also a fun phone to use. And if you're an AT&T customer, your chance to do so has arrived.
The carrier offers HTC's first Marshmallow-running device in Carbon Gray and Opal Silver. Either way, you're paying $520. Yes, that's a big leap up from the $400 introductory price, but that's why we call them deals (edit: so you might want to jump on that while you still can).
Since this is AT&T we're talking about, you have no shortage of ways to part with your money. Read More
When HTC announced its stand-alone Re sports camera, more than one commenter wondered what the company was doing leaving its smartphone comfort zone for an industry that's already dominated by a single player. Though the Re camera is decent enough on its own and the design is completely unique, it's not enough to sway potential buyers away from GoPro and Sony cameras, which have more features and an established reputation. Apparently someone at HTC agrees, because the camera is being discounted by a whopping 75%.
That brings the price down to just $50, well into impulse buy territory and much more palatable than the original $200 retail price. Read More
HTC has officially announced the One A9 today, with a 5" Super AMOLED 1080p display with Gorilla Glass 4, a fingerprint scanner, microSD slot, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow with a revised version of sense. This will make the A9 the first non-Nexus device to launch with the latest version of the Android OS. The One A9 will be available in 4 colors, pictures below (we're not sure which markets will get which colors, yet). It's powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz for the high-power cores and 1.2GHz for low-power, and is available with 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and 2GB or 3GB of RAM, respectively, though the US is only getting the 32GB version, which has an introductory price of $399.

HTC has promised to reveal an Android 6.0-powered device on October 20th, and that event is just around the corner next Tuesday. But the company hasn't released any upgrades for its current devices just yet (not that anyone really expected them to at this point). Despite that, HTC just released a new app on the Play Store, HTC Restore, which is only compatible with Marshmallow HTC phones. All none of them. Presumably the app is on the Play Store in advance of that new phone, which we expect to be the HTC One A9 "Aero."
The app is... Read More
We're at the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness month, which means now is a good opportunity to take whatever product you're selling and offer it in pink. HTC has decided to do precisely that. If you want to raise awareness of breast cancer or merely draw attention to that colorful piece of metal you keep raising to your ear, then you're the person who should take advantage of this time to buy a limited edition pink GSM HTC One M9. You can even have the pink ribbon imprinted on the back.
If this hot pink device looks familiar, that's because HTC showed off its flagship in this color back when it launched the device in Taiwan seven months ago. Read More
There's a lot to take in today. The new Nexus devices are official. There are two of them. And while both will ship with Android 6.0, folks will more likely get their hands on Marshmallow using older devices before the new ones start shipping. Read More
HTC has a new top-of-the-line phone brewing, and having apparently run out of new ways to talk about Duo cameras and metal alloys, they're opting to make it look like an iPhone. We got a peek at the HTC A9 back in August, and subsequently said, "yup, it looks like an iPhone." Unfortunately new leaks from two different sources aren't going to move that opinion, though they do give us a somewhat better view of the phone as a whole. A view that says "iPhone, but with huge bezels."
First up is Twitter leakster Evan Blass, who posted multiple tweets claiming that the phone is codenamed Aero and will be released in early November. Read More
The HTC One M9 may not have lived up to all our hopes, but it's still a good phone overall. I'd get an M9 before a great many other devices out there, if the price is right. Today, you can get your hands on an M9 for the reasonable price of $379.99 if you act fast. Read More
Remember when HTC had its Hot Deals discounts in July and everyone tried to grab a Nexus 9 for 40% off? Well, the deal is back and you better hurry because the stocks seem to be depleting as I type this. Right now, only one color of each 16GB (black) and 32GB (white) Nexus 9 remains available, while the other is gone, gone, gone. If you're too lazy to do the math, you're looking at paying $239.40 instead of $399 for the 16GB, and $287.40 instead of $479 for the 32GB. At those prices, the tablet's flaws sort of disappear from the equation. Read More
