GSMArena team, 26 June 2015| comments (58)

Charge test: Battle of the fast chargers

Charge test: Battle of the fast chargers

GSMArena team, 10 April, 2015| comments (126)

Smartphone batteries piggybacked on the growing screen size to go up in capacity to support both the screen and faster chipsets. Slower to deplete, the new batteries also proved slower to charge so manufacturers tackled the issue with new standards.

HTC Desire 820 & Desire 820 dual SIM review: The doppelganger

GSMArena team, 20 January 2015| comments (61)

In a lot of ways the HTC Desire 820 is the natural continuation of the mid-range handset line and can be considered more or less an upgraded version of the Desire 816. It is a solid device on its own...

HTC Desire 510 review: Inbetweener

GSMArena team, 31 October 2014| comments (38)

We're not far from the time when the smart in phone will be implied. Prices are falling, market share is climbing – it's near impossible to keep track these days of all the new entries in the low end and the midrange. HTC’s Desire lineup is no...

HTC One (E8) review: Traveling light

GSMArena team, 01 August 2014| comments (71)

What if you stripped the HTC One (M8) of the metal armor it's so proud of. Imagine replacing it for plastic. Sounds like the worst thing that could happen to the top model of a struggling company. The HTC One (E8) will heartily disagree...

GSMArena team, 21 May 2014| comments (199)

HTC has mostly stayed out of the phablet market but the segment is expanding so fast the Taiwanese can’t afford to keep snubbing it. The HTC Desire 816 is only the company's second phablet and it’s the first affordable one. It rides on the premium looks...

HTC has expanded the One family with a new petite member - the HTC One mini 2. Note that it's not One (M8) mini, this is more of a sequel to the One mini from last year. Perhaps most telling of this is...
