HTC Sense 5.0 Review: Better! But Also Worse

HTC’s Sense UI has evolved over the years from a laggy train wreck in its early incarnations to something quite lean and serviceable in Sense 4.0. The newest version, Sense 5.0 — which will be launching on the HTC One — is yet another departure. But different isn’t always better.


HTC One Australian Hands-On: One To Watch

HTC has made some great Android handsets over the years, but what has it done for you lately?

HTC Australia Planning Big Device Launch For Next Week

HTC has been fairly quiet since the launch of its flagship One XL last year, and to be honest we’ve been hoping for something special to drop as soon as possible. Now it looks like we’re about to get it, as HTC teases us with an event invite for the next big thing on February 21.

HTC's Online Management Site Goes Live For Latest Androids

There is a catch, however: It looks like it’s only available for the Desire HD and Desire Z phones, which should be going on sale any day now. I signed up for it and attempted to use it with my plain ol’ Desire, but didn’t have much luck.


HTC Incredible Bug Stores Browser Screenshots Even After Factory Reset

As incredible as the, err, HTC Incredible may be, there appears to be a pretty serious bug locked in the Sense UI which takes screenshots of the web browser’s content, storing them even after a factory reset is done.


Android's Acne Problem: Or Why You Should Stick To The Google Phone

HTC’s Evo might be the last phone running custom software on top of Android that you should even consider buying. Because the whole trend of skinning Android has become a horrible, dividing mess.


HTC Evo 4G: Some Notes On A Juggernaut

Ginormous. That’s the EVO 4G in a word. The 4.3-inch screen. The 8-megapixel-photo, 720p-video-recording camera. It’s the first ever phone with superfast WiMax wireless. It has a kickstand. Like I said, huge.
