It is a somewhat an early “stealth launch” – Sprint isn’t yet actively pushing the update and subscribers won’t be getting notifications until February 11 and distribution will proceed in batches. However, you don’t have to wait for the update to appear in the notification bar, you can manually check for it and trigger the download right now!
Who would be the next US carrier to do this!?
While unlocked versions might receive the refresh earlier, there are already reports of it being sent out– American carriers will not lag that much behind. A new report claims that this update is in the hands of major US carriers as of now as they test these version before a rollout. So if you are rocking an international or a carrier specific HTC One, keep checking that Notification drawer!
If you have missed the news we posted yesterday about leaks of a 3D printed HTC One 2014 edition that leaked then we advice you go through that first.
The report claims that Chein, the VP and his conspirators had been planning to leave the company and start a design firm of their own. They are charged under the crime of secretly showing off highly confidential internal projects – from the upcoming Sense 6.0.
He is also accused of showing fake expense reports by his investors if the leaks weren’t enough. Although there will be proceedings in court, it would be difficult to get out of such allegations.
The makers of this 3d printed model claim that an insider tipped them on the dimensions of this device which they later 3d printed. The screen around this time is rumoured to be a tad bigger coming in at 5 inches. The speakers are expected to be the same Boomsound branded ones with capacitative buttons at the bottom.
We expect more details as we near the launch date so drop by!
It’s holiday season again and that time of the year when there are a lot of gifts being wrapped. Let’s take a look back and see what this year meant for the smartphone industry and which one’s made it big. Here is a list of Top 5 Smartphones for 2013!
1. Apple iPhone 5s
While Apple would not have won a medal in redesigning this much similar-looking iPhone, it surely won all the attention, primarily because of it’s neatly tucked fingerprint scanner – a first on any commercially available mobile phone.
The 64-bit A7 processor is logically a major upgrade over the predecessor, but the bigger change is the M7 co-processor, which picks up data from various sensors even while the phone may be asleep. The iPhone 5s is everything you love, only much better.
2. Samsung Galaxy Note 3
The Galaxy Note 3 is the pinnacle of Samsung’s line of large phones. It’s Samsung’s best effort by far. The Note line of devices brought phablets (i.e., large-screened phones) to the masses, and none is more accessible than the Note 3.
Samsung managed to reduce the device’s footprint while increasing the size of the screen to a whopping 5.7 inches. The Note 3 is also thinner, lighter, and classier than ever, thanks to the faux leather back and tasteful chrome accents.
3. Google Nexus 5
Google bought a treat and well needed upgrade to it’s Nexus 4 and man does this phone offer the best bang for the buck! Historically the Nexus devices bring flagship level hardware at rock bottom prices but with the Nexus 5 you get even better.
he Nexus 5 packs in a bigger screen this time around – 5-inch Full HD IPS+, with Gorilla Glass 3.And yes, how can we forget Google’s promise of instant OS updates being rolled out for Nexus smartphones and tablets?
4. LG G2
The LG G2 is by far one of the best effort devices in terms of hardware and innovation throughout. The 5.2-inch display is by far one of the best that’s currently available on any available smartphone at 424 ppi.
The power key sits just below the camera at the back, with the designers assuming that a finger will naturally reach that spot when you hold the phone conventionally.
5. Nokia Lumia 1020
If you are extremely concerned about picture quality on your phone and need a camera replacement then here is a great option. Although you need to be a quick adapter to a new and quite-friendly operating system, the Lumia 1020 snaps photos like a boss!
With a 41 MP sensor with OIS, It offers full manual control over every aspect of creating a photograph such as shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation, white balance and even offers the ability to manually focus the lens.
Do you have another best that we have missed? Comment below.
HTC is playing a very absurd contest this Christmas for which you need to follow them on their Instagram handle. Once you do that one needs to explain why its so bad in the caption with the hashtag #ReplaceMyGift, and tag HTC in the photo.
While this is relatively simple, HTC has cleared that nobody mention other companies or products in their posts. Apart from that it is also funny because no one wants to post their gifts as bad gifts online.
If you still want to try your luck, post on Instagram with the hashtag #ReplaceMyGift and check the rules below.
Sony’s announced their latest USB flash drive and it features dual micro USB and USB 2.0 connectors. It is compatible with devices running Android version 4.0.3-4.3, but compatibility for Android version 4.4 should also arrive soon.
These drives are fully compatible with USB OTG for which devices act as hosts. They are priced at $19.99, $29.99, or $62.99, for the three storage capacities i.e. 8GB , 16GB and 32GB.
This is how it works : HTC would give you a $600 32GB One for nothing down, and then you’ll make no-interest monthly payments of $25 for the next two years. This is not the first time a manufacturer has offered direct finance but it’s still very rare specially for a high-end flagship device on which the company rely’s for it’s existence.
This offer is only available in the US, and this is for the GSM One only!

HTC was bought to the court of law by the Finnish Manufacturer, Nokia which said that HTC has infringed it’s “modular structure for a transmitter and a mobile station” patent.
Nokia had achieved a sales ban against the One smartphone line in the UK before, forcing HTC to change the radios and microphones inside the One as quoted by reliable sources.
The HD2 continuous to get enormous amount of community support which means that it can now run Android Kitkat 4.4. Folks at XDA Developers once again shows the world that the device is still evergreen. Being a very gently ageing phone means that it doesn’t come with all the bells and whistles.
Thing that dont work include the SDcard , WiFi, Data connection and the Camera.
