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+)
  • 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+)

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

Sunday, September 23rd, 2018

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.

Jeff Gordon leaves post as HTC’s global director of PR after over 7 years at the company

Saturday, September 1st, 2018

Earlier this year, Mo Versi, a man best known to many for giving information about software updates on Twitter, left his post at HTC after 8 years at the company. At that time, Versi told his followers to direct any questions regarding to Jeff Gordon, HTC's Global Head of PR. However, Gordon (no, not the NASCAR driver) is now also leaving the company after nearly 8 years to pursue a new endeavor.

HTC reveals the U12 Life: A slightly boring mid-range phone that won’t be coming to the US

Thursday, August 30th, 2018

HTC is continuing its recent attempts to sell phones in the so-called "premium mid-range" market with the newly announced U12 Life. Specs are about what you'd expect for incremental improvement over last year's U11 Life, with a 6" 1080p-equivalent 2:1 display, new dual camera configuration, and Google Pixel-reminiscent two-tone rear design. Unlike last year's model, though, this one won't be coming to the US.

Specs

SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 636.
Display 6" 1080p equivalent (1080x2160) 18:9.

HTC teases ‘something new for U’ on the cusp of IFA

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

HTC's official Twitter account pushed out a teaser early this morning, telling all its followers that "something new for U" would be coming on August 30th. For those not watching their calendars, that's the day before doors open at the upcoming IFA consumer electronics show in Germany. Based on recent leaks, though, the announcement is probably for the U12 Life.

The tweet is short and enigmatic in a roll-your-eyes marketing sort of way, simply stating that "beauty and power meet" on that date — because there's never been a fast and pretty phone before.
