What’s the difference: HTC U Ultra vs HTC U11

Last week HTC took the wraps off its second flagship for 2017, the U11. The phone comes only five months after the HTC U Ultra was announced, which has been received with lackluster interest by the Android community. Will the HTC U11 be able to do better? It might, as it does have some aces […]

Moto C Plus vs Nokia 3 (Ultra Budget Smartphone Showdown)

We’d all like a Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG G6, but for some of us spending $ 600+ on a smartphone just isn’t an option. The good news is that today the smartphone market has something to offer for every customer, even on low budgets. The recently unveiled Moto C Plus and Nokia 3 are two […]

Review: LG’s Tone Ultra neckbuds are as good as it gets

LG is still the best neckbud company out there.

Love them or hate them, Bluetooth earbuds you wear around your neck aren’t going anywhere. They’re inexpensive enough to be purchased on an impulse, the battery will never not last you a full day, and the connection to your phone is usually pretty strong.

HTC U Ultra second opinion: U expect more

HTC’s first phablet in years is a perfectly fine phone that feels a little half-baked in places — and for $ 750… well, you expect more.

Five or six years ago, HTC was a titan of the smartphone world. But the past half-decade hasn’t been kind to the Taiwanese company. It’s lost money, market share and several high-profile designers and executives.

Nevertheless, HTC’s still here, and still making pretty good phones, both under its own brand name  [Read More…]

HTC’s ‘unexpected surprise’ is a U Ultra with a sapphire panel and 128GB storage

HTC’s limited edition U Ultra picks up 128GB storage and a sapphire-coated display for an additional $ 150.

HTC Taiwan said last week that it would share an “unexpected surprise” on March 20, and like the company’s recent launches, the reveal itself was rather underwhelming.
