HTC’s Q3 Financial Results Reveal $57 Million Loss

Since the glory days of the HTC Evo 4G, HTC has failed to make significant waves with most of their smartphone products.

Betrayal of Hype: Playing Fast and Loose with Release Dates Breeds Consumer Mistrust

Yesterday, Google launched Allo on the very last day of summer, just narrowly squeezing into their “Summer 2016” launch window.

HTC Teases Phone Announcement for 20th September

The HTC 10, despite being a well built flagship and a worthy contender, could not capture the throne in the flagship wars.

Opinion: The HTC 10 Is One of the Best Devices We’ve Already Forgotten About

When I reviewed the HTC 10 a few months back, I was impressed by just how solid of a device it was, and how restrained yet wholly functional its user experience turned out to be. It was a good phone, a great phone even, but I parted ways nonetheless. Everyone in the XDA staff that also...
