The U Ultra is HTC's first flagship phone for 2017, and it didn't get great reviews.

If you really wanted one for some reason, the U Ultra is now $150 off at HTC's website, along with several other phones. Read More

The HTC 10 came out a good while ago now - at least in terms of technology - so the Taiwanese company is feeling the need to refresh its lineup in time for Christmas. Just as well, then, that the HTC Bolt came out recently, right? Well, HTC is now releasing that phone for international markets, under the name HTC 10 evo.
The evo is, for all intents and purposes, the same phone as the Bolt. The processor is a Snapdragon 810, with four Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.5GHz and four Cortex-A57's clocking in at 2.0GHz. RAM comes in at 3GB with 32GB of internal storage with up to 256GB microSD cards supported. Read More

The Bolt is the first device to support Sprint's LTE Plus three-channel carrier aggregation, which is already live in Chicago, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, Cleveland, and Columbus.
LTE speeds aside, the Bolt is a mid to high-end smartphone. The entire device is made of glass and metal with a 5.5" Quad HD Super LCD 3 display on the front covered with curved-edge Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Read More
HTC might be responsible for building the new Pixel phones, but its name won't be on them. HTC is still working on its own HTC-branded devices, including the unannounced HTC Bolt. Noted leaker of things, Evan Blass has some images of this phone, and guess what it doesn't have... a headphone jack. What a time to be alive. Read More
