About a week ago, we learned that the Android 7.0 Nougat would be released for the HTC 10 in Europe within 2 weeks. And right in the middle of that timeframe, the roll out has started.
Graham Wheeler, Product and Service Director for HTC EMEA, tweeted that the 1.17GB OTA has started with Unlocked HTC 10 units, but only in the UK for now. Other European regions should follow. Read More
We've seen several carriers update their HTC 10 models to Android 7.0 Nougat over the past few months, including T-Mobile and various European providers. Now Sprint has finally pushed the Nougat OTA to the HTC 10 on its network. Read More
About two weeks ago, HTC began rolling out Nougat to the HTC 10, 10 Lifestyle, and One M9 in Europe. However, the rollout for the HTC 10 was paused due to an unforeseen technical issue, with the company estimating a fix due in February. Read More
The HTC 10 was released early last year to mostly positive reviews, minus the high price tag, and caused us to give HTC the "Most Improved OEM" award for 2016. The Nougat rollout for the unlocked HTC 10 in the US started last month, but users across the pond will have to wait a little longer. Graham Wheeler, Product and Service Director for HTC EMEA, announced that the unlocked HTC 10 and One M9 in Europe will receive Nougat in the next two weeks. Read More
During my briefing for the new HTC U Play and U Ultra last week, a point of discussion around "flagships" came up during the presentation. HTC wants to send the message that U is now the premiere brand for the company, and that U is where HTC's premiere products will be found.
There was an interruption by an HTC rep, something along the lines of "we won't say there will be no HTC 11" (I'm paraphrasing here - this isn't a directly attributable quote), but the HTC executive making the presentation then responded with something that basically worked out to "well, we kind of are saying that." There was a pause, and the presentation moved on. Read More
While everyone is busy paying attention to the happenings at CES, T-Mobile has dropped a few big OTA updates. Android 7.0 Nougat is coming to the HTC 10 and LG G Pad X 8.0. If you have one of these devices, now is the time to start mashing the update button. Okay, don't actually do that, but an update will arrive soon. Read More
The HTC 10 is really quite a nice phone, and it was such an improvement over its predecessor, the One M9, that we recently gave HTC Android Police's Most-Improved OEM of 2016 award. Arguably the largest issue was its price; at $699, it was a tad out of reach for some. However, HTC's latest Hot Deals sale discounts the 10 to just $499, a $200 reduction, and a free pair of wireless headphones. Not bad. Read More
After a fair bit of discussion, we've decided that if there's one manufacturer in 2016 that stepped up its game across the board, it's HTC. And, of course, we think that step up was embodied in the HTC 10.
HTC has gone through something of a rough patch since its release of the One M7 back in 2013. The M8 and M9 were nowhere near as highly-regarded, and the stale design language of the phones left many fans and critics thinking HTC had lost its way. The One M9, in particular, seemed a low point. It had a mediocre display, subpar camera, middling battery life, and didn't even feature a fingerprint scanner. Read More
The end of the year has arrived, and it's time to make our picks for the phones that represented the best of what the [Android] smartphone industry had to offer in 2016. Without further ado, here are the recipients of the Android Police Most-Wanted award in 2016 for "Top Smartphone," in no particular order. Read More
HTC's got a Thanksgiving treat for you folks in the US - at least the people who own an HTC 10, anyway. Nougat is arriving starting today! Excellent news. Read More
