No big surprises here, but T-Mobile subscribers will finally get that dream phone that has been rather lacking in the carrier’s lineup as of late. That’s right – HTC One S has been officially announced by T-Mobile, making the HTC One S the first of the One series to reach the eager hands of US customers, after they were first announced way back in February.
HTC One S will not only become T-Mobile’s flagship device, but it will also be the first on the carrier to ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 4. From the phone’s 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 4.3-inch Super qHD AMOLED display, 16GB internal storage, to its unibody aluminum case, [...]
The release of the HTC One X has been received with an overwhelmingly positive response from the Android community. With the 4.7″ Nvidia quad-core Tegra 3 powered device, HTC has certainly made its intentions clear, aiming for the top in the race for the title of best Android device of the year.
But, as with any new release, the One X has not been without its issues, with a lot of users complaining about:Poor battery life Device overheating Issues with using hardware buttons instead of the Android 4.0 recommended on-screen keys Auto-brightness setting issues Icons and text appearing glitchy in the notification bar
As a testament to the importance of a [...]
We’ve been hearing rumors and speculations about the HTC One X and its US release for a long, long time and we finally have some official news to bring you today.
HTC’s flagship Android-based smartphone, which is already available in select European markets, will start selling at AT&T on May 6 for $199.99 with a two-year contract. The One X will be an AT&T exclusive, at least for the time being, because we know that a Sprint-branded version of the smartphone, called the EVO 4G LTE, should also hit the market sometime in June.
AT&T’s One X will be identical with the international version of the smartphone, with two notable differences. The model [...]
Even though the Samsung Galaxy S3 is still weeks away from being put up for sale, its imminent unveiling is already causing serious headaches to Sammy’s competitors. HTC shares dropped over 6% on Tuesday on the Taiwan Stock Exchange, and this sudden fall is interpreted by financial analysts as being caused by two factors.
First of all, the future Samsung superphone finally has an unveiling date next to its name, and pretty much everybody in the mobile business is looking at the future Galaxy S3 as the “Android of all Androids”.
However, as flattering that might sound to Samsung executives, HTC’s shares drop was also caused by an internal “event”, the replacing [...]
Android Revolution HD developer mike1986 came across a bug in the stock software released with the HTC One X. The Tegra 3 power management and scaling software didn’t seem to function properly, and he looked deeper into it.
According to mike1986, an application identified as ‘NvCPLSvc.apk’ was misplaced by the HTC developers. Instead of residing in the /system/bin/ folder (as it is now), it is supposed to be in /system/app/.
Along with the custom ROM, Android Revolution HD, the developer was good enough to release a separate fix package. You can find it here on the XDA Developer Forums. To apply this patch, HTC One X users must plug their [...]
A new handset is set to join HTC’s smartphone lineup this year, but it’ll be one without the, well, One branding. For now, the codename given to the smartphone is Golf. According to reports, the HTC Golf is the designated successor to the HTC Wildfire S, and it’s likely that we’ll see it in stores branded as the HTC Wildfire C.
We guess you know what specs to expect from an entry level phone, such as the HTC Golf. Though the 3.5-inch display is bigger than the predecessor’s, the phone retains the same 320 x 480 resolution found on last year’s Wildfire S. There’s no confirmation yet on what chip will be powering the device, but it’s expected to come with a [...]
Verizon isn’t really short in HTC devices – with three Android smartphones made by the Taiwanese manufacturer currently being offered by the carrier, namely HTC Droid Incredible 2, HTC Rhyme, and HTC Rezound. But given the fanfare that the HTC One Series has been receiving, it’s quite odd how the biggest carrier in the US seems to be left out in the cold. AT&T and Sprint got their HTC One X, while T-Mobile sports the HTC One S – what new and shiny HTC phone is coming to Verizon?
Without any hype (it sure feels like it), Verizon might be releasing the HTC Droid Incredible 4G, the phone that was once known as the HTC Fireball, at the end of this month. To be precise, [...]
T-Mobile has sent out invitations to tech journalists for a private event in New York on April 18, where they can experience the HTC One S, one of three HTC One series devices that will land stateside this year. The fourth largest carrier in the US is expected to finally confirm the launch date and price of the HTC One S.
Not that we don’t already know that that HTC One S will most likely ship on April 25 – or a week after the private event – but we can all still act surprised, right?. Aside from the launch date, we’re interested to know what price T-Mobile will set for the phone. Seeing that the $200 price point has already been reserved for the HTC EVO 4G LTE [...]
Uh oh, there seems to be some trouble brewing in the HTC paradise, as a good number of unhappy owners of the HTC One S report that the phone’s surface isn’t as sturdy and durable as HTC has been claiming. So what’s wrong with the surface of the HTC One S then?
In spite of the bold claims made by HTC about the micro-arc oxidation (MAO) process used on the One S making the phone almost immune to dents and scratches, reality (as it, too often, tends to do) begs to disagree. A thread on XDA-Developers, started by a user complaining about the chipping that appeared on his freshly bought HTC One S, quickly turned into a cacophony of laments from other users that are [...]
It looks like T-Mobile’s HTC One S will sneak past the HTC One XL on AT&T and HTC EVO 4G LTE on Sprint, to become the first device in HTC’s 2012 lineup to be available in the US. TmoNews has received confirmation that T-Mobile USA will ship the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED phone on April 25.
The launch date of the HTC One S on T-Mobile was first detailed on the carrier’s internal marketing kit for the phone, which highlights the features of the HTC One S that employees should tout to lure potential customers. Being that Wednesday is the typical launch day for new phones on T-Mobile, this only strengthens the case that One S will touch down on April 25, as it falls on a [...]
