HTC One M9e Lands in China, We’re Not Impressed

HTC is really confusing us with its high end smartphone output recently. This year has been a mess frankly, and after the utterly underwhelming One A9 was launched last week, the company is now putting out yet another One M9 variant. This time it is a Chine specific One M9e, which will have watered down specs but will maintain the high end classy design with metal unibody. That sexy design alone is a reason to opt for this over the...

HTC One A9 Coming to Verizon in December

We were really disappointed with HTC’s new One A9, a device that does not live up to the flagship billing that the company is putting on it.

For a start, it is not even a flagship if we look at it purely form a specs point of view, and even the design seems a step down from the One M range that blazed a trail in terms of premium quality. When HTC wants to do premium it is one of the very...
