Life is never boring in the Android community, especially with all the new developments that come our way everyday. It’s one of the reasons why millions of people around the globe use Android. Adding to the long list of reasons why you should like Android is a mod, by XDA Developers member D3HuM4NiZ3D, that will transform your Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 or GT-I9305’s speakers into Beats speakers. This means you can enjoy crisper, clearer, and louder sound output along with some nice bass enhancement.
MegaBassBeats makes your Galaxy S3 music experience a dream come true and you need to do is flash this modification via recovery. If your Galaxy S3 is running [...]
HTC’s financial results haven’t been kind to them lately, and neither has the media. All of HTC’s problems have been documented extensively lately, which, in turn leads to shareholders losing trust in the company’s ability to recover. However, this is the sort of thing a public tech company should expect.
Financial dry spells never happen suddenly, even if it may seem so when everything comes crashing down. But the seeds for HTC’s decline were planted a long time ago, at the time when the company started to care more about sales than for its products. This led to HTC churning out a ton of variations of every single phone, just to get a few [...]
I think HTC made quite a few financial mistakes last year, and the outcomes of those mistakes are starting to appear this year. Besides other strategic mistakes that led to the sharp decrease of their market share and profits in US and Europe, like releasing too many “no-name” models with no long-term branding, they also made some very bad investments last year.
That includes the $40 million they paid to OnLive, and I still haven’t seen anything coming out of that yet. They probably thought that their tablets will take off and their customers will want to play those games on their tablets. But nobody [...]
Instead of hearing the sweet sound of success, the much-championed synergy between HTC and Beats Electronics was met with a bunch of noise and static. With HTC struggling to carve a place in the smartphone market, the Taiwanese have decided to sell 25% of the audio brand’s shares back – stripping off the company from its majority shareholder status.
The revelation was shared by HTC and Beats over the weekend, where the shares were announced to have been sold back for $150 million. Back in August 2011, HTC purchased 50.1% of Beats for $309 million. This means it may put HTC at a bit of a loss.
Android manufacturers are hard at work producing their take on the world’s best smartphone. Luckily for us Android fans, this summer, there is no shortage of contenders for the highly coveted title of King of the Android hill.
Right now, perhaps, the fiercest rivalry in the Android world is the one between leading manufacturers HTC and Samsung. The stories of the arch-rivals couldn’t be more different. HTC led the smartphone revolution and commanded a sizable portion of the market up until recently. But now, the tides have turned, and the Taiwanese are struggling to return to their former glory, largely depending on the success of their highly acclaimed One [...]
For all the goodies that the HTC One series devices are packing inside, one can’t help to wonder why Beats headphones are conspicuosly missing from the package. Other recent high-end smartphones from the company, after all, have come with those distinctive red and black earbuds. If you hope to find a pair in the box of any of the new HTC phones, such as the HTC EVO 4G LTE, you’re bound to be disappointed.
HTC product executive Martin Ficther explained to CNET that, for the time being, they have shelved the idea of bundling Beats earbuds with HTC smartphones. The company learnt it the hard way that, at the end of the day, the headphones weren’t really a drawing factor [...]
For many people, their Android devices are also their portable media hubs and their personal buddies in times of boredom. Just plug in the earphones and play one’s favorite songs to take one’s blues away. But, unlike some HTC phones, not all Android devices are equipped with Beats Audio that enhances your music experience.
Fortunately, XDA Developer RockoDev has managed to flash Beats Audio on some Android phones. The developer also claims that this installation method works (or, rather, “should work”) on all Android devices running Android 2.3 Gingerbread or higher.
The Beats Audio package has been tested and works with the following [...]
