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

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…

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….

HTC One M9 Video Review: A Lovable Phone

By Rich W Woods I’m doing a thing. It’s new. After writing a full review of a device, I’m doing a video review as well. It’s a way of wrapping up my thoughts on a device. There are certain things that work better when you say them out loud, certain emotions that you can convey. I thought the HTC One M9 is a great phone. I think that anyone that buys it will be happy…

HTC One M9 Review: An Awesome Phone that Doesn’t Measure Up

HTC One M9 Review: An Awesome Phone that Doesn’t Measure Up

By Rich W Woods My time with the HTC One M9 is coming to a close and I’m finding that it is a phone that I will miss. I’ve found the HTC One M9 to be a delightful device; however, I find the general feedback around the device to be very discouraging. After the HTC One M9 was announced at Mobile World Congress, I went down to the HTC booth to see what HTC had…

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 Re Camera Review: Good Idea, Bad Execution

HTC Re Camera Review: Good Idea, Bad Execution

By Rich W Woods Way back on October 17 at HTC’s Double Exposure event, HTC announced a “remarkable little camera that we call Re”. The idea was that while a Go Pro is great for people doing extreme sports or jumping into a volcano, the HTC Re would be better for everyday folks doing everyday things. I have always been a fan of HTC’s photography tools. They are an industry leader in front facing cameras…

HTC Desire Eye Review: A Mid-Range Flagship?

HTC Desire Eye Review: A Mid-Range Flagship?

By Rich W Woods As I tell people when I write these reviews, I don’t go to events and I don’t sign NDAs. I don’t sugar coat my reviews because I don’t have to. Because of all that, my reviews tend to come out a few weeks later than everyone else’s. When the NDA was lifted on the HTC Desire Eye, I read the reviews posted on The Verge, Engadget, etc. They all described it…

HTC One M8 for Windows vs Nokia Lumia Icon: Which is the best Verizon Windows Phone? Part 3 Final Comparison

By Rich W Woods Verizon has always had a limited selection of Windows Phones. When Windows Phone 8 launched, they got the HTC 8X and the Nokia Lumia 822, both mid-range phones. Later, they got the Nokia Lumia 928 after the former two had left the shelves. The Lumia 928 was a variant of the Lumia 920 that came out 8 months after AT&T got the 920. Contrary to what Nokia, HTC, or Verizon would…
