HTC Desire 700 dual sim review: Smarts for size

GSMArena team, 05 February 2014

A flagship, a mini and a phablet. From there on, it’s all you Desire. This pretty much sums up the Taiwanese smartphone portfolio, where the once premium Desire line is doing double and triple shifts to cover all kinds of price brackets, shapes and...

HTC One Max vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Heavy hitters

GSMArena team, 28 October 2013

The Samsung Galaxy Note may have started the phablet craze, but history won’t count for much when the Note 3 faces the HTC One Max. The Max takes the lauded HTC One design and build and trumps the Note 3 in terms of screen size...

Orlin Milinov, 14 October 2013

It's phablet o'clock on HTC's watch and they're shifting gear and changing direction. Done expanding the One portfolio towards the compact end of the spectrum, HTC are going the other way with the aptly named One Max...

HTC Desire 500 review: Here To Charm

HTC Desire 500 review: Here To Charm

GSMArena team, 1 October 2013

Desire has long been the signature of the company's tier-2 lineup. With past offerings varying from capable midrangers all the way down to entry level, going blindly for a smartphone bearing the Desire moniker has been largely a hit-or-miss...

LG G2 vs HTC One: Game of phones

GSMArena team, 25 September 2013

HTC Butterfly S review: Evolution complete

HTC Butterfly S review: Evolution complete

GSMArena team, 21 August 2013

The first Butterfly was somewhat of a wasted opportunity for HTC, the limited reach and high asking price preventing the 5" 1080p monster from becoming a global winner. Back then the company was merely...

HTC Desire 600 dual sim review: One in two

HTC Desire 600 dual sim review: One in two

GSMArena team, 19 August 2013

With dual SIM still more or less a niche feature and considering the Desire line has been sliding down the ranks and losing value, people will have more than enough reasons to give the HTC Desire 600 dual sim the cold shoulder. Will it be deserved...

HTC One mini vs Samsung Galaxy S4 mini: Young guns

GSMArena team, 14 August 2013

Yes, you can call it Round 2 but we don’t think it’ll be up to the minis to sort out any unfinished business between the flagships. What we do know though is that taking the dispute to the junior league doesn’t mean there’ll be less pain in losing and less honor...

HTC Windows Phone 8S review: Icebreaker

GSMArena team, 18 December 2012

No one's had any reason to question HTC's commitment to Windows Phone. The Taiwanese have been on board since the heyday of PocketPCs, helping Redmond quickly man a nascent WP7 army. Now they're back in the thick of action for the next...

HTC DROID DNA review: Champion genes

GSMArena team, 21 November 2012

HTC Desire X review: Needs and wants

GSMArena team, 11 November 2012

For one reason or another, the One series failed to live up to their potential in terms of actual sales, so HTC turned back to the time-tested Desire line to fill up the coffers and secure some time to regroup. A new attack on the high-end market takes...

HTC Desire V review: A simple wish

HTC Desire V review: A simple wish

GSMArena team, 8 October 2012

Long gone are the glory days of the Desire line - once a cradle of flagships, it now gives in to the rise of the One series. With the Wildfires all but extinguished, the Desires got the lower midrange all to themselves. But instead of clinging to a glorious past, they're now trusted to start winning over the next generation of smartphone users...
