HTC One M9 Review: The Phone Only HTC Could Build... For The Third Time

HTC was one of Android's earliest supporters. When the Dream launched in 2009, little did HTC likely know that its fortunes would skyrocket in the few years after, along with its share of the smartphone market. Not long after, though, those fortunes began to wane - with the launch of the original One series (One X, S, V), HTC's first attempt to rebrand its smartphone design image began.

The One X was, and I still think is, a beautiful phone. While the Tegra version was lamentable, the Qualcomm-powered variants received generally wide praise. The next year, One M7 launched. It, too, was very good-looking, and while the Ultrapixel camera was controversial, the phone debuted to very positive reviews.

Moto X 2014 Now Available In Red Leather, So Your Phone Can Match Your Christian Louboutin Pumps

Motorola has really been pumping up the customization option for the newer model of the Moto X, and the exotic wood and leather backs are probably the most interesting part. Today the Moto Maker website in the US, UK, France, Germany, and Mexico has added an option for red Horween leather on the back panel, just in case you want to match up with the soles of your designer shoes.

The upgrade is the same $25 charge (in the US) as the other leather and wood options, and engraving is still available. You can also add a 32GB or 64GB storage option for $50 or $100, respectively.

808s & Snapdragon Heartbreak: LG's G4 May Forego The 810 Drama In Favor Of More Conservative Chipset

We're not in the habit of posting pre-release benchmark results here at Android Police, because they're easy to fake. Really, really easy. But, they also turn out to be legitimate in many cases, because manufacturers and testers do use benchmarking applications on unreleased devices, and perhaps even do so intentionally to drive up hype in the enthusiast community before a launch. Still, the risk of counterfeitery means we generally aren't going to post such things unless we have corroborating evidence, and today, we do - sort of.

A GFXBench result for a device codenamed F500x, AKA the G4, appeared recently with an interesting specification sheet attached - one that did not include a Snapdragon 810.

Sony Announces Worldwide Android Lollipop Rollout For The Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, And Xperia Z3 Tablet

Xperia owners, watch out. Lollipops are raining from the sky and smashing straight into your screens. If you welcome this phenomenon, don't do anything. These lollipops have heat-seeking sensors and will find your devices wherever they lay. If you prefer KitKat, you can swat the intruders away, but you'll never get to experience the future changes in store for your Android device.

Sony has confirmed that it is launching lollipops at Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, and Z3 Tablet Compact devices all over the world (some of these updates were previously pushed out to smaller, test markets). The manufacturer plans to open fire on the Z2 and Z2 Tablet starting next week.

LG G2 On Verizon Wireless Receives OTA Update With Android Lollipop

The benefit of buying a flagship, aside from solid specs, is the likelihood of continuing to receive updates after the predecessor has launched. Carriers and manufacturers generally try to keep you current just long enough to make it through a two-year contract without complaining. So now we're seeing the year and a half old LG G2 on Verizon Wireless updated to Android 5.0.

LG-G2-Lollipop-Verizon

Software version VS98039A brings in those changes that come with Android Lollipop, which we've covered in great detail. Many of these tweaks look different when combined with LG's alterations, but everything still remains pretty flat and colorful.

[Weekend Poll] Will You Buy A Galaxy S6, HTC One M9, Or Neither?

This weekend's poll is a flagship battle bonanza: with both the Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 set to launch in many countries in a mere matter of days, we want to know which one you'll be buying. I know, most of you will be purchasing neither, but we want to hear from those that are, too, to see how the chips land here at Android Police.

The Galaxy S6 is the most appealing phone from the Korean smartphone king in as many years as they've been making them, if you ask me, while HTC'S latest effort seems like a bit of a rehash.
