DontKillMyApp.com shames OEMs that needlessly kill useful background processes to save battery life

Sunday, January 13th, 2019

The days when third-party battery-saving apps were necessary to hit a satisfactory number of hours off a single charge are long behind the vast majority of Android users, thanks to improvements like Doze and Adaptive Battery. But in some cases, this measure of progress has become something of a Pyrrhic victory, with useful background processes carelessly destroyed and developers taking the brunt of user ire. Well, the Urbandroid team — the gang behind apps Sleep As Android, Twilight, and others — doesn't plan on going quietly into the night.

HTC’s revenue dropped to an all-time low in 2018, down 62% from 2017

Friday, January 4th, 2019

I don't need to tell you that HTC is in dire financial straits, but I'm still going to tell you how dire because wow. HTC just released its year-end 2018 numbers, and things are looking bleak. HTC took in just 23.74 billion TWD ($770 million) during 2018, the lowest in all its years as a public company.

HTC's December 2018 revenue clocked in at 1.3 billion TWD, the second lowest month in 2018.

HTC plans smartphone sales ‘reboot’ in 2019

Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

HTC was the first Android device maker, and it remained one of the market leaders for years. Its recent performance hasn't been stellar, though. After a long line of lackluster quarters, HTC president Darren Chen promises improvements in 2019. Apparently, HTC is aiming for a sales "reboot" by focusing on high-end and mid-range phones.

That plan sounds pretty vague, which is probably the intention. Chen mentioned the U12+ has sold better than expected, and HTC hopes to continue building on that success with similar flagship phones in 2019.

And the first HTC phone to get Andoid Pie is… the U11 Life

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

The update to Android Pie was supposed to be faster in the wake of Project Treble, but most phones are still languishing on Oreo. HTC announced several months ago which of its phones would get Pie, a list that included most of its recent releases. Well, the first one is rolling out now—it's the HTC U11 Life.

You might not know much about the U11 Life because it's not a very popular phone even in the context of HTC.

LineageOS drops support for 30 devices, including the Redmi Note 3 and Moto G4

Monday, November 26th, 2018

The LineageOS custom ROM used to support just about every phone imaginable, but lately the project has been going for quality over quantity. Oreo (15.1) builds have to fulfill stricter requirements to receive official status, and now Lineage is dropping support for 30 unmaintained phones and tablets.

Lineage recently announced that builds for a given device would be disabled unless the maintainer (the person porting the ROM to the device) regularly checks in.

Here are all the devices that support Qualcomm Quick Charge 4/4+ [Continuously Updated]

Monday, October 29th, 2018

It's definitely hard to keep up with all the different quick charging technologies. Most flagships use Qualcomm Quick Charge, some (like the Pixels) use USB-PD, and a few others use custom tech like OnePlus Dash Charge. Qualcomm Quick Charge 4 is over a year old at this point, but for one reason or another, most devices have stuck with QC 3.0.

Without further ado, here is the list of all the hardware that uses QC 4/4+:

  • Razer Phone (4+)
  • ZTE Nubia Z17 (4+)
  • ZTE Nubia Z18 (4+)
  • BQ Aquaris X2 (4+)
  • BQ Aquaris X2 Pro (4+)
  • Smartisan R1 (4+)
  • HTC U12 Plus (4+)
  • LG G7 ThinQ (4)
  • CAT S61 (4)
  • Xiaomi Mi 8 (4+)
  • Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition (4+)
  • Xiaomi Mi A2 (4+)
  • Pocophone F1 (4+)
  • LG V40 (4)
  • Razer Phone 2 (4+)
  • ZTE Axon Pro 9 (4+)
  • AGM X3 (4+)
  • Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro (4+)
  • Qiku N7 Pro (4+)
  • AGM X3

With our latest update, we see more phones from familiar names: LG's V40, the Razer Phone 2, ZTE's new Axon Pro 9, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro and Mi A2, and the Pocophone F1.

HTC’s ‘blockchain’ phone is up for pre-order, but you have to pay in crypto

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

Following last year's bitcoin-led explosion in cryptocurrency value and media exposure, the topic has more or less left the public consciousness at large. Crypto still has its share of die-hard proponents, though, and HTC is going after them directly with the Exodus 1, which you can now pre-order — but only if you've got bitcoin or Ether to pony up.

The Exodus 1 was announced in May, although back then, it was just the Exodus — I'm dubious there'll be an Exodus 2, which seems to be the implication here.

10 years of Android phones: The ten most important handsets of the last decade

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

Ten years ago this week, the first Android phone was announced - the T-Mobile G1. No one could have predicted the massive success that Android would eventually become; the OS now has over two billion active users worldwide.

In honor of Android's 10th birthday, we're taking a look at the most important and influential Google-powered phones of the past decade. Every one of these devices redefined Android in some way, by pushing the OS further into the mainstream, introducing design trends, or signaling the start/end of an era.

The first Android phone, the T-Mobile G1, was announced 10 years ago today

g1

On this fateful day ten years ago, Google, T-Mobile, and HTC joined forces to announce the T-Mobile G1. It would go on to launch internationally as the HTC Dream, but this piece of hardware was the first way consumers could experience the Android platform. The G1 was far from perfect, even by the standards of the day. At the same time, it offered an open, customizable experience in stark contrast to the iPhone.

Hands on with the HTC U12 Life: The blessing and the curse of feeling nothing like the U12+

Saturday, September 1st, 2018

Last year HTC went after the mid-range market with a new product line, introducing the U11 Life a few months after the debut of the flagship U11. And while it did a surface-deep impression of the U11's design, cheap-feeling materials and a price that was just a little too high kept it from really being a competitive option for shoppers on a budget. Now the series is back with the U12 Life, and this week at IFA 2018 we went hands-on with the phone to form some impressions about whether or not this new model will be any more successful.
