HTC One (E8) review: Traveling light

GSMArena team, 01 August 2014

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...

HTC One (M8) vs Sony Xperia Z2: Unsafe mode

GSMArena team, 11 June 2014

HTC One mini 2 review: Growing up

GSMArena team, 26 May 2014

Another season, another flagship, another mini in tow. Guess we all know the drill but HTC had quite a few decisions to make. To begin with, they went for a bigger screen, placing the mini 2 right between the original and last season’s flagship...

HTC Desire 816 review: Heart's desire

GSMArena team, 21 May 2014

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...

GSMArena team, 15 May 2014

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...

Samsung Galaxy S5 vs. HTC One (M8): Leather and steel

GSMArena team, 17 April 2014

HTC has made some of the best-looking smartphones in recent history while Samsung has some of the best-selling ones. That’s very much true for the HTC flagship and yet to be seen about the Samsung Galaxy S5, but the clash is no less...

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 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...

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

GSMArena team, 19 August 2013

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...
