HTC One A9 Review: More than Just a Mid-Range

Ever since the day that the HTC One A9 was announced, I was super excited about it. I reviewed the HTC One M9, HTC’s flagship, in the Spring. It was a good phone but it stayed in the shadows of amazing phones like the iPhone 6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6. The HTC One M9 had some key problems. One was the display. Anything that was supposed to be white looked like it was tinted…

Seriously HTC? WTF?

Seriously HTC? WTF?

The world of smart phones around us is rapidly changing. You might not see it, but it really is. It was only three years ago that Phonebloks was first heard of.

HTC Announces the HTC One A9, and it’s Awesome

Today, HTC had their Be Brilliant event, where they announced the HTC One A9. While appearing as a flagship, this is actually a mid-range device, which is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 617 chipset. I say it appears as a flagship because quite frankly, the HTC One M9, HTC’s actual flagship, doesn’t. The HTC One M9 was underwhelming. It gets too hot and the camera was mediocre at best.

HTC Desire 626 Review: Great for HTC Lovers on a Budget

HTC Desire 626 Review: Great for HTC Lovers on a Budget

I feel like I’ve been writing articles about HTC phones like this a lot lately. The HTC One M9 overheated, didn’t have the best display, and it didn’t have the best camera, but if you love HTC Sense, it’s perfect for you. It reminds me of the iPhone 5/5S days when Apple wasn’t producing anything particularly exciting, but if you love iOS, the iPhone 5 was for you. Now don’t get me wrong, HTC Sense…

Nexus 9 with Android M Video Review

Nexus 9 with Android M Video Review

For the second time, I am reviewing the Nexus 9. I reviewed the LTE model when it first came out. It was pretty bad. I had heard that the Wi-Fi only model was better. Now, I’ve finally got my hands on a Wi-Fi only Nexus 9. Of course, I installed Android M Developer Preview on it. That was pretty bad. The actual review of the Nexus 9 running Android M will be at the bottom….

Well, this is an interesting turn of events. All year, we were talking about the LG G Flex 2 and the HTC One M9 and the fact that they overheat, due to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor.
