In a world where Samsung and Apple dominate the smartphone sphere, and multi-billion dollar companies like Sony, LG, and Motorola struggle to maintain single-digit market share, it's rather easy to convince yourself that real innovation and excellence costs lots of money. And, as an extension of that thought process, that there's little reason to look outside the current crop of popular phone makers.

Don't you just love these trickle updates? Little update here, little update there – but never anything major. It's all the excitement of getting an OTA, with none of the benefit! And that's what today's T-Mobile One S update is all about: security enhancements. That's it. Nothing more.

Yes, that’s just the HTC One, the phone previously known as the M7 is all grown up and sporting the plainest version of HTC's "One" branding yet (which we are totally in favor of - Hopefully the carriers leave it alone).
