Archive for the ‘HTC One M8’ tag
HTC has been teasing it’s Desire 820 smartphone since a week now and today we have confirmation that it is indeed going to be rocking a 64 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon with 8 cores – so we believe it has to be the Snapdragon 615 with an Adreno 405 GPU. September 4th is when HTC is going to make this another “world’s first” title.
The phone packs a Snapdragon 801 processor with 2GB of RAM, a 13 MP Duo-camera interestingly. It still comes in at a resolution of 1920*1080p and has front facing Boomsound speakers as well. Another interesting addition is that this HTC’s first high end waterproof device which comes with a IP57 certification and it doesn’t even need flaps to cover the ports!
Apart we have 16/32GB memory onboard and a 5MP front facing camera with a 2700mAh battery. This phone is a great device since HTC has worked upon the mistakes they made with the One M8.
The HTC One(WP) is the rumored WP twin of the HTC One M8 and it would be carrying around the exact same design language. The high-end device is expected to debut in a few days, on August 19 in New York City. This photo is clear enough for us to take a look at it. The only real differentiation on the outside the Windows Phone logo below the HTC one.
The One is expected to come with a 5″ 1080p display, Snapdragon 801, Duo camera and Boomsound speakers as well.
Google Now Launcher is a fantastic launcher which earlier was a novelty only Nexus users could only make use of. Google recently announced an update post which any Android user can install it on their phone running Android 4.1 or higher.
So if you have an Android with a laggy, buggy launcher that is way too cluttered then this is the way you can breathe in a new life into your phone. Your phone needs to be running on Android 4.1 atleast for this launcher to be compatible with it. This also means newer phones like the HTC One M8, Galaxy S5 and LG G3 are now supported.
Head over here to try it out.
It can be dubbed as the One M8 everyone wanted – it has a 13MP camera with a depth sensor. Like the E8, the J Butterfly is plastic, though it also happens to have IPX5/IPX7 water and dust resistance. Other specs include a Snapdragon 801 CPU, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, microSD, Bluetooth 4.0 and Android 4.4 with Sense.
If you love HTC and Sense and don’t want to settle down for a 4MP camera then this is the phone for you. Let’s hope it makes its way to the US.
This update shall be available for the international version as well as developer version. Versi also added that HTC has made sure that the security fixes from 4.4.4 were added to 4.4.3. This strongly denotes that HTC will be skipping the 4.4.4 update for the big one – Android L.
The carrier versions of the phone for AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon will also receive the update. If you are rocking an HTC One M8 – good news!
May was when we first heard something that made us believe that HTC is onto something when it comes to Android Wear. Now we have a leak by the infamous @evleaks.
It was earlier that the HTC one would comes with a round watch face just like the Moto 360. Now though, it seems it’s getting a square screen. The watch looks very similar to the Sony smartwatch which was one of the first square faced smartwatch to kick off this trend. It however seems that this is not a final press render but an artists representation of the final design dimensions.
The UI too is just a placeholder instead of actual Android Wear that will be a standard looking card layout and not anything running sense. Do you find this watch hot? Would you rather have a round watch face?
Find My Phone is a fairly popular Android app that helps you track your phone down. The Find My Phone smartwatch app extends the same functionality on your wrist. Since your smartwatch is constantly communicating with your phone, it makes use of that channel and keeps a track of your phone.
The interface is fairly simple and the color scheme as you can see is very flashy. This is a good app to have if you have invested in a smartwatch that runs on Android wear.
Xiaomi is a Chinese OEM famous for it’s famous aftermarket ROM called MIUI. They also manufacture phones but now they are taking over India – a country that has attracted a lot of eyeballs lately for a variety of low-mid range smartphones.
It is hard to believe, Xiaomi is planning to sell it’s flagship Mi3 for just $250 in the Indian market and will go on sale on July 15. From the pricing it is difficult to tell but what you are getting for that price is gold – a 5 inch 1080p phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB Internal storage and a 13 MP rear camera with a 2MP front camera and a 3050mAh battery with MIUI on Android 4.3.
Some of those specs are even better than the Nexus 5 for an even better price, your thoughts?
This offer is however applicable only on phones and tablets with a plan. Your purchase needs to be with an installment plan or two-year contract agreement. Post your purchase, you will have $50 Google Play Credit at your disposal to be spent on any apps or games of your choice.
The $50 voucher will last you until May 15th, 2015, so if you don’t spend it all by that time, then you’ll be out of luck. So plan soon if you are to buy one, we all like free credits.
