HTC One M9 Unboxing and First Impressions

HTC One M9 Unboxing and First Impressions

By Rich W Woods Yesterday, I received the HTC One M9 to review. Personally, I’m super excited about it. I know that I’ve spoken to a lot of people that frankly aren’t excited about it, I am, and have very good reason to be excited about the HTC One M9. The HTC One M9 is a complete overhaul of the HTC One M9. They used more RAM, a powerful 64 bit Snapdragon 810 processor, a…

HTC One M9 Gets Major Camera Update

HTC One M9 Gets Major Camera Update

By Rich W Woods Today, HTC pushed out an update to the HTC One M9. The Camera app now takes RAW pictures, which is really great for what is becoming known as a mediocre camera. Of course, I just got my review unit so I can’t speak on that with any authority just yet. If you don’t know what a RAW photo is, think of it as the digital equivalent of a film negative. You…

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 is an HTC Killer

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 is an HTC Killer

By Rich W Woods Admittedly, I have only been using the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge for two days now. This is not a review. I can already tell that the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge are HTC killers. Anyone who knows me or follows FTLoT knows that I have never been a fan of Samsung. You might have read my review of the Galaxy Note 4, A Perversion of Innovation, or…

Hands On with the HTC One M9

Hands On with the HTC One M9

By Rich W Woods I am a little late to write this. In my defense, I have been extraordinarily busy at Mobile World Congress. Microsoft invited me so I spent most of my time with them; however, I didn’t forget to check out the all new HTC One M9 and boy does it look exciting. One thing that excites me about the HTC One M9 is not just the 20 MP rear camera but the…

HTC Desire 820 Review: The First 64 Bit Android Phone

HTC Desire 820 Review: The First 64 Bit Android Phone

By Rich W Woods Ok, it wasn’t exactly the first 64 bit Android phone, but the HTC Desire 510 is lower end and didn’t quite get the publicity. The more I used the HTC Desire 820, the more impressed I became with it I became. The display is just 720p, which is a pretty low resolution on a 5.5″ LCD. It comes out to 267 ppi. Unfortunately, it runs Android 4.4 KitKat, which doesn’t support…

HTC Desire 820 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Camera Comparison

HTC Desire 820 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods I’m almost done putting the HTC Desire 820 through the rounds for the camera comparisons. You may have noticed that I’ve been focusing more on the HTC Desire 820 instead of the Microsoft Lumia 535 and the Amazon Fire Phone. That’s because I have to give this one back. HTC and Sony both make great smart phone cameras; however, they do it in different ways. HTC saturates the image, using their…

HTC Desire 820 vs iPhone 6 Camera Comparison

HTC Desire 820 vs iPhone 6 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods I have been using the HTC Desire 820 for about a week now and I’m pretty impressed with it. It has a great camera, super fast for 13 MP, the front facing camera is probably in the top five of all smart phones, and it’s a fast phone. I thought that it’s about time to compare it to the iPhone 6. I am looking forward to doing this comparison because they…

OnePlus One vs HTC Desire 820 Camera Comparison

OnePlus One vs HTC Desire 820 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods I have been spending a week now with the HTC Desire 820 and I am pretty impressed with it. I actually like it better than the HTC Desire Eye. It has a lower resolution display powered by a better GPU. Also, it uses an 8 MP front camera, allowing to make it normal size instead of the monster they used on the HTC Desire Eye. The time has come to compare…

HTC Desire 820 vs Nokia Lumia 830 Camera Comparison

HTC Desire 820 vs Nokia Lumia 830 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods HTC is always on the cutting edge of new technologies. They made the first Android phone. They were the first to use a high resolution front facing camera. In fact, they were the first to use a reasonable resolution in the front camera. They were the first to use a flash on the front camera. They were the first to put speakers on the front of the phone. Both the HTC…

HTC One M8 vs HTC Desire 820 Camera Comparison

HTC One M8 vs HTC Desire 820 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods The HTC Desire 820 is the first 64 bit Android phone. There is just one problem: the OS that it runs on only supports 32 bit. It has still not received Lollipop. Of course, since I have received the device, I can’t find a way to check for updates. In fact, when I turn the device off, if I put it on the charger, it gives me a disclaimer about how…
