It's been nearly 2 years since the Incredible name last graced a Verizon phone (albeit a crappy one), and while the name doesn't seem to be making a comeback, the philosophy might, in the form of the HTC One Remix.
HTC and Verizon have a long and storied history of branded handset partnerships, and the Remix looks to be a very slight twist on the One Mini 2, the HTC One M8's down-market counterpart. In fact, aside from some Verizon logos gratuitously splattered across both sides of the phone, it's hard to say what, if anything (aside from bloat) will make the Remix any different from the One Mini 2.

HTC's flagship phones are well known for their all-metal design, but that's not the only element that contributes to their style. Like its contemporaries, the M8 knows how to put on a new coat of paint. In just two days, Verizon Wireless will start offering the slick handset in a glamorous shade of red and an attention-grabbing shade of gold.
Since Father's Day isn't far off, Verizon's willing to part with any phone priced at $199.99 or higher (with a two-year contract) for $100 off. This includes the HTC One M8 in both of its new colors, along with the pre-existing shades of silver and gray that might just be more dad-friendly. Read More
Do you want most of the HTC One's features in a device that's not quite as expensive? Then meet the One (E8), HTC's newest smartphone. Between the plastic (oops, sorry, "polycarbonate") body and a separate model with dual SIM card slots, it's clear that this handset is aimed at developing markets. The announcement post for the phone doesn't mention a specific date or price, but my money's on "soon" and "upper mid-range."
First of all, the E8's screen is 5" and 1080p, the same as the One M8. The processor (Snapdragon 801) and RAM (2GB) are also holdovers from the flagship model. Read More
You know the drill by now. HTC has been pushing through the Sense 6 update to the old HTC One on US carriers, and now Verizon has given it the all clear. That means Big Red's M7 is getting the OTA update with Sense 6 starting today.
The Sprint HTC One (M7) got KitKat way back in January. Since then, things have change a lot with the announcement of the M8 and Sense 6. At long last, owners of last year's flagship on Sprint can get a taste of the new Sense via an OTA update.
Did you buy a Samsung Galaxy S5 or an HTC One M8 recently? Prepare to be disappointed. In addition to rumors of a souped-up Galaxy S5 "Prime," the reliable Evleaks has posted what appears to be a full 360-degree rendering of an even newer flagship from HTC. The so-called One M8 Prime looks like a bigger, badder version of the M8 - note the relatively huge bump for the primary camera and a more flat and less rounded design overall.
Evleaks has been teasing his followers for the last week with leaked specs for the device. According to him, the newer phone uses a 5.5" 2560x1440 screen, a screaming Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM, and fast category 6 LTE. Read More
If you've got an HTC One on T-Mobile, whether it's the original from 2013 or the new One M8, you have a software update headed your way. Nether is packing a new version on Android, because they're both running KitKat, but new features are inside nonetheless. One M7 owners get a refreshed version of HTC's Sense interface, and One M8 owners now have access to the Extreme Power Saving mode.
Sense 6 is the version of the HTC interface that debuted on the One M8, and since it's being passed down to the M7, we can assume that it will make it to the devices like the One Mini and One Max at some point. Read More
HTC's software versioning is a little more complicated than it is with other Android OEMs. You might have Android 4.4.2, but be lacking many of the features found on a newer device because you have an older version of Sense. HTC can, and does, update these independently. Such is the case with last year's HTC One – some versions of the M7 are getting Sense 6 today to go with their KitKat ROMs.
The HTC One M8 is a metal phone, so naturally it launched in metallic colors: gunmetal gray, the M7's shade of silver, and some kind of gold. Since then, we've seen leaked shots of the phone in pink and blue. Now our eyes have witnessed it in red. Read More
HTC took the wraps off the previously leaked One Mini 2 today (stylized as One mini 2), revealing a device that is slightly smaller than its older sibling and substantially more out of shape. With only a Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM, it won't move around pixels nearly as quickly as the device it takes inspiration from. At least with its 4.5-inch 720p display, it won't need to crank out as many, though it's still a stretch to think of a phone this size as small.
Yet like anyone with an inferiority complex, the One Mini 2 compensates however it can. Read More
