HTC Announces the Quick Charge Compatible Rapid Charger 2.0

Shut-up-and-take-my-money

Batteries in our smartphones are growing in capacity with each passing generation. However, our smartphones still seemingly like to die at the least expected moments, hence the invention of power banks. Power banks can be used to charge your device for a bit. But even though they can be convenient to own, they’re generally nowhere near as fast as a real wall chargers.

While we all wait for a smartphone (other than today’s larger phablet devices) that can last more than a couple of days of regular usage, it may be a good idea to invest in a quick charger that can can charge your battery from 0 to 60 percent in just 30 minutes. One such chargers was just announced by HTC.

Leaked HTC Update Roadmap Shows Android 4.4.4 Rollout Starting in July, Android L Under Evaluation

HTC Android L Update roadmap

While quite a few of us here on XDA have long since forgotten about OEM firmwares and updates in favor of aftermarket development efforts, many still prefer the additional value-added features found in stock-based ROMs. And for those who remain on stock or stock-derived firmware, it’s always nice to have an idea about upcoming Android releases.

Thanks to famed leaker and XDA Recognized Contributor llabtoofer, we now have a better idea of HTC’s upcoming update roadmap for several devices including the HTC One M8 (2014), One (M7), One Max, One Mini, and more. According to the leak, Android 4.4.3 + Sense 6, which was previously slated to hit the M7 and M8 will likely be skipped in favor of goi. . . READ ON »

htc - Android L

We still don’t know what the “L” in Android L stands for, but we’re already salivating at what this update will bring to consumer devices. Promising improved performance, a refreshed UI, better battery life, and much more; L is a legitimately significant release, and possibly the most important version since Ice Cream Sandwich.

With all of the new features introduced in L, it’s no wonder that many users are now wondering when they’ll get to experience this latest version on their own devices. We already know that the developer preview will be available for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) tomorrow. And now, HTC has taken the opportunity to commit to releasing Android L upd. . . READ ON »

Leaked HTC Sense 6 Update Schedule for Current Gen Devices

update

Just one week ago, we took a look at a leaked video that gave viewers a quick walk-through of what was purported to be HTC’s yet to be released Sense 6. While the veracity of the leaked video is still unknown, we do know that Sense 6 is on the horizon. It’s only a matter of time before it reaches consumer devices—well, if the company doesn’t go under before then due to poor sales and perplexing legal practices.

So naturally, the question on everyone’s mind is when and if their current generation HTC devices will receive the HTC Sense 6 goods. Well, thanks to leaked documents courtesy of XDA Recognized Contributor and leaker extraordinaire LlabTooFer, we now have a better idea.

And Today’s Bully Act is Brought to You by HTC

HTC vs

Ok, the image chosen for this article might be a tad misleading, but it does try to convey a rather important point. HTC is a company that has always worked closely with the underground/hacker/modder/developer community—or at the very least, they have not done a whole lot to prevent us from doing what we like. It has been this way ever since the days of Windows Mobile. They have pretty much kept their distance and have tried to tip toe around the many activities that take place on XDA and similar sites.  However, this has not always been the case and it seems that the sleeping lion may finally be awakening, partly due to desperation.

Many, many, many moons ago, back when Android was still in proverbial diapers. . . READ ON »
