HTC U12+ review: They fixed the buttons! [Updated]

Happy Memorial Day to everyone in the states observing today.

HTC U12+ vs. Samsung Galaxy S9+: Which should you buy?

Two plus-sized phones, only one option available to most consumers.

Samsung has been enjoying the limelight for a few years now as the leading Android brand, but it wasn’t too long ago that HTC was a major competitor, stealing customers away with its far superior build quality and audio delivery. These days though, neither of those features are unique to HTC anymore. Ever since Samsung shifted from plastic to glass and metal in its flagships, its build  [Read More…]

HTC U12+ hands-on preview: Big, beautiful, unattainable

Sleek, modern, and still not coming to U.S. carriers.

HTC has been experiencing quite the rough patch throughout the last couple of years. Once a fan favorite with phones like the One M7 that pushed design boundaries and experimented with camera and audio tech, the Taiwanese company now struggles to sell units in any significant capacity.

It’s everything you want in a 2018 flagship — for a price.

There’s a lot to like about HTC’s U12+ flagship, including some innovative features that are sure to turn heads.

HTC will skip the U12 and instead only release the U12+ in 2018

Things aren’t looking good for HTC.

Following up on the U11 and U11+ from 2017, we’ve been expecting HTC to release successors to those two phones in the forms of the U12 and U12+. However, according to a new report from Venture Beat‘s Evan Blass, that’s no longer the case.

Rather than releasing two flagships over the course of the year like we’ve seen from Samsung and LG, HTC will instead focus all of its efforts on  [Read More…]
