The HTC One is an Android smartphone manufactured by Taiwanese manufacturer HTC. The device serves as a successor to HTC’s 2012 flagship phone, the One X—a device that was critically acclaimed, but commercially unsuccessful due in part to poor marketing efforts. The HTC One was developed with an emphasis on unique hardware and software features, such as an aluminum casing, a new image sensor implementation for its camera, stereo speakers, a revised version of HTC’s Sense user experience, and other new software functionality such as the “BlinkFeed” news aggregator and “Zoe” camera features.

HTC is coming back strong on the market and now they are trying to overcome the market by introducing their new phones with Win8. To do this, they are introducing their line of Win8 phones and they have two representatives, one for the high-end market and another for the midrange.

After few months of sleep and a lot of similar uninventive Gingerbread gadgets, HTC made a bum with their new series of One phones, returning to the right path. But, this series doesn’t respond to the vast majority of users because it is not aimed at the shallow pocket regular users. That’s why the Taiwanese giant decided to recycle their Desire phone and in it to put the necessary hardware that will be enough for some one that doesn’t want or doesn’t have the money to buy a more expensive model.
Desire C has a tough task, to put Wildfire S in a well-deserved retirement. Continue reading

Intel wants a piece of the mobile market and they wanted this for a long time. They joined almost all the markets with their processors, but this has been one market that they haven’t left a mark on. So, how are they planning on doing it? In collaboration with an Indian phone company called Lava. This phone has been launched in the Indian market on the 23rd of April 2012 and with their first try, Intel in collaboration with Lava is turning heads and beating scores all over. This phone ranks with the top competitors on the market, right next to HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy III. So let’s see what makes it tick, what is under the hood that makes it so good.
On the surface it looks like a normal Android phone, a bit like a copy of iPhone. It even runs on an Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), with a possibility on future upgrade to Android 4.0. It has a sleek design, black surface with metal lining. Continue reading
HTC changed its policy of producing a lot of phones in different segments in one year and now they have made phones in different segments for different consumer audiences. Leading this change is their flagship phone One X, followed by its smaller brother One S then One XL and One V. Even though One X is supposed to be the top of the pop, the main deal, the bomb, the through is that in some things it lacks behind its smaller brother the One S.
The camera sensor is proclaimed by HTC to be the best on the market but, it lacks the quality and produces a lot of noise, even in day conditions. The Tegra 3 chipset lacks behind the newer Krait dual-core processor given in One S, followed by some lacks in design like- no dedicated camera key, micro SIM card slot that is only accessible by a pin and no memory slot.

They are presenting, a full line of phones, with new technologies implemented and with a lot of new features. Even though HTC One S is a middle range phone, it has something to say.

HTC one S comes in a standard shell for HTC, with a relatively generic outlook for a HTC phone but, it has some things that are specific for it, only. Firstly, it has a back panel that is made by a new material made by HTC. It is a material made in two steps and it is said that, it is five times stronger than stainless steel and aerospace aluminum. The other new cool feature is its camera. It can take up to 94 pictures in a minute and also take a full 8MP picture, while filming a video. This will be great when filming children, or just taking a picture, in the right moment. Continue reading
