HTC Flyer review – Pen pal

HTC Flyer review – Pen pal

GSMArena team, 06 July 2011

Considering the avalanche of tablets now on the market one could be forgiven for thinking “How will this one be any different?” The HTC Flyer, though, is nothing if not unique.Yes, it's an Android tablet; but one which has decided to zig when every other droid tablet out there has zagged...

HTC Sensation vs. Galaxy S II vs. Optimus 2X: Head to head

GSMArena team, 16 June 2011

Time to lace up the gloves and step inside the ropes again. A new dual-core competitor, the HTC Sensation, is challenging the current crop of flagship droids with its fast new chipset, high-res screen...


HTC Sensation review: Front-page stuff

HTC Sensation review: Front-page stuff

GSMArena team, 10 June 2011

HTC burst right onto the dual-core scene with a phone that's set to be an Android sensation. They've gone all out with the design of that one - from screen, through camera to the powerful chipset. No cutting corners, no compromise on features. Update, 02.08.2011: Video summary of the review added...

HTC Wildfire S review: S-size droid

GSMArena team, 18 May 2011

Mini phones are hot and HTC don’t want you take Sony Ericsson’s word on that. What started as a small niche is now a segment that keeps growing – and one that no manufacturer can afford to ignore. Sony Ericsson have just announced their...

HTC Desire S review: Droid cravings

HTC Desire S review: Droid cravings

GSMArena team, 18 April 2011

Powerful hardware, large high-res screen and the latest Android version in a single piece of solid metal – the recipe did wonders for the original Desire so no wonder HTC are in no mood to experiment with the sequel. Take the best and make it better pretty much sums up the game plan...

HTC Incredible S review: Smart and curvy

HTC Incredible S review: Smart and curvy

GSMArena team, 22 March 2011

The unfortunate naming aside (seriously, didn’t anyone say it out loud before they announced it?), the Incredible S is a pretty great smartphone. You’ve got spotless connectivity, an exciting new screen, those cool rotating buttons and...

HTC Gratia review: Body double

HTC Gratia review: Body double

GSMArena team, 7 January 2011

Compact but capable, subdued but edgy, old but new. That’s the HTC Gratia. With Froyo greasing the cogs, the European version of the HTC Aria is more than a name change – this petite droid is getting ready to storm the Old Continent...

HTC 7 Mozart review: Eine kleine Nachtmusik

HTC 7 Mozart review: Eine kleine Nachtmusik

GSMArena team, 08 December 2010

The HTC 7 Mozart is not the kind we are used to meeting - and no, before you ask, it’s not a music-centric gadget as the name suggests. Something quite different in fact, it’s all about the camera that goes beyond Microsoft’s demanding specs. Once again...

Our 2010 holiday gift guide: Texting Santa

GSMArena team, 3 December 2010

If you are reading this, chances are mobile phones are something between a mild addiction and a passion for you. It’s that time of year again and you might already be eyeing a phone to gift your loved one or – there we go – yourself...


HTC HD7 review: Dim the lights

HTC HD7 review: Dim the lights

GSMArena team, 1 December 2010

There’s no such thing as a small WP7 phone. However, 4.3 inches of screen estate are really something else. The best case scenario: the HTC HD7 is the phone you’ve been waiting for. The worst case scenario: it’s too big to fail. The HTC HD7 was inevitable...

Mobile phone display mega shootout: The full picture

GSMArena team, 29 November 2010

There are so many of them that it’s pretty hard to make up your mind. It all boils down to LCD vs. LED although this simple fact is easy to overlook. You can go ahead and blame it all on marketing but that’s one thing that just can’t be black or...


HTC 7 Trophy review: Achievement unlocked

HTC 7 Trophy review: Achievement unlocked

GSMArena team, 24 November 2010

It truly is a catchy name, but the Trophy is – so to speak – the consolation prize in the HTC Windows Phone 7 lineup. It’s not the big guy in the family nor is it the smartest. The Trophy is a middle-of-the-roader, the mass market choice. It’s the first HTC-made...

HTC Desire Z review: Desires A-to-Z

GSMArena team, 12 November 2010

A few months ago, the original Desire was teaching younger Droids the ropes. Though it’s no time to retire just yet, the next generation is ready to take over. And we’re talking no rookie here – the new Desire Z means business with a great QWERTY keyboard...

HTC Desire HD review: Most wanted

HTC Desire HD review: Most wanted

GSMArena team, 11 November 2010

Proceed with caution, big Snapdroids ahead. We guess that sign is due wherever someone mentions Desire HD. It’s big and bad and it takes no prisoners. HTC certainly took their time with releasing a badass Android handset on our side of the pond but ...

HTC 2010 event coverage: The droids are coming

GSMArena team, 15 September 2010

Fashion phones overview: Man’s best friend

GSMArena team, 01 September 2010

Gadgets have become so important they're a part of how people look at you. A phone can tell a lot about who you are. Fashion phones… well… let's say they leave little to the imagination. There are handsets that make an impression...

HTC Aria review: The little tenor

HTC Aria review: The little tenor

GSMArena team, 27 August 2010

First we were hit by a Wildfire, now we’re being soothed by an Aria. The HTC Aria shares a lot of DNA with the HD mini, but makes the jump to Android and is ready to take on compact touchscreen midrangers. The HTC Aria goes against the current...

HTC Wildfire review: Desire Mini

HTC Wildfire review: Desire Mini

GSMArena team, 20 July 2010

Occasionally HTC takes a little break from high-end smartphones and dips its toes in the waters of the lower midrange. The HTC Wildfire is a down-sized, down-clocked and down-priced version of the HTC Desire. If Sony Ericsson can do it with the X10...

GSMArena team, 09 June 2010

Being a veteran in the smartphone market is huge advantage when you decide to come up with something new. After so many Windows Mobile and Android devices, HTC surprised us with a completely different product – HTC Smart. It’s a semi-smartphone...

HTC HD mini review: Smart pup

HTC HD mini review: Smart pup

GSMArena team, 23 April 2010

There was a time when Windows Mobile used to rule the smartphone seas. Then along came Symbian but that’s a whole other story. It was touchscreen that showed to all the willing challengers that Windows Mobile is just too big to turn around quickly enough and catch the new wind. HTC however seem to disagree and dispel doubts of jumping ship...

HTC Desire review: A desire come true

GSMArena team, 16 April 2010

If you’ve seen the Google Nexus One, you’ve seen the HTC Desire. End of story. We liked the Nexus One so be our guest, HTC Desire. But is it all that simple? HTC are so good they build phones for the competition. HTC are so mean they have no issues competing...

HTC Legend review: A Hero becomes a Legend

GSMArena team, 24 March 2010

It took a little Magic and a Dream but Android eventually got a Hero to champion the OS. Now, the HTC Legend comes in an aluminum suit of armor to join the ranks of the Android army. So, is this knight in shining armor set to be the vanguard of the...

HTC Tattoo review: Your phone, your ink

GSMArena team, 12 March 2010

The HTC Tattoo wants to redefine smart in smartphone. This affordable little thing was among the first droids to go mass-market. But run-of-the-mill specs don’t mean a boring personality. The HTC Tattoo wears its heart on the sleeve and a shirt...

Google Nexus One review: Firstborn

GSMArena team, 26 February 2010

All droids are equal but some droids are more equal than others. Google it. You’ll get the Nexus One. There are around 50 smartphones and tablets running Android today. That’s right, out of all the offspring they fathered with the Open Handset Alliance...

HTC HD2 review: Portrait of a rockstar

GSMArena team, 17 November 2009

Quietly brilliant is what HTC like to call themselves and they’ve been giving enough proof lately. But allow us to disagree. The last thing to call the HD2 is quiet – the monster of a PocketPC simply screams rock'n'roll...

GSMArena team, 10 November 2009

The dragon in the HTC camp has awoken, ladies and gentlemen, and it’s time it shows what it’s capable of. Be it a dragon, or a lion, the HTC HD2 or HTC Leo as it has been codenamed prior to release is truly a spectacular device that...

HTC Touch2 review: Beyond the basics

GSMArena team, 02 November 2009

Affordable isn't the most common word in the HTC vocabulary but a company whose sole line of business is smartphones is not quite expected to speak the language of the masses. That said, we really need to define affordable first...
