HTC Titan and HTC Radar hands-on: HTC media event

GSMArena team, 01 September 2011

HTC's pre-IFA event was (as suspected) all about Windows Phone 7 Mango. HTC had a lot to say about the new version of the OS and what they've added to it, but also showcased two new phones - the 4.7" monster called HTC Titan and the smaller Radar... Update, September 2nd: hands-on videos

HTC EVO 3D review: An extra dimension

GSMArena team, 19 August 2011

As 3D is taking over theaters and living rooms around the world, the craze is hitting handheld too. The next thing to shake up the business or on the way to irrelevance: geeks will geek about it either way. Now that the HTC EVO 3D has grown a GSM radio, they get...

HTC Salsa review:

HTC Salsa review: "Like" it or not

GSMArena team, 15 July 2011

It takes two to tango, HTC seem to think. The HTC Salsa joins the ChaCha in a bid to treat young Android users to as much Facebook as they can handle. The little blue button makes an appearance again, this time in a more familiar context. While the...

HTC ChaCha review: Status update

GSMArena team, 12 July 2011

Standing out in the ever growing crowd of droids is a tall task indeed. Doing so while keeping the whole thing affordable, is next to impossible. HTC – of all makers – somehow managed to achieve it, vastly improving the market prospects of...

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 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

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

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

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 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...

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...
