HTC’s U12 Life Looks Like an Awkward, Budget Hybrid of an iPhone X and a Pixel 2

Earlier this summer when I took a look at HTC’s most recent flagship phone, I was terribly conflicted. On one hand, I was a big fan of the U12+’s clear glass back (haven’t you heard, translucent gadgets are cool again), while its dual cameras on the back are probably the most underappreciated cameras in the smartphone world. Unfortunately, those features weren’t enough to completely redeem below average battery life and really annoying touch sensitive buttons on its side. Read More >>

I Really Hope HTC Doesn’t Go Out Like This

After years of declining sales, unloading $1 billion (£753 million) worth of patents and personnel to Google, and just recently slashing 25 per cent of its global workforce, when it comes to HTC, I have one big question: So what’s left? Sure, HTC may have been able to insulate its promising Vive VR business by spinning that department off into a separate company. But as for HTC itself, if all the company has left in the tank is its upcoming crypto phone and this, the new U12+, things aren’t looking good. Read More >>

Don’t Expect the HTC U12+ to Come With a USB-C Headphone Adaptor

The past few years has seen some phone companies ditching the headphone jack in favour of a USB-C/Bluetooth combo. To make up for the fact USB-C headphones aren't very common, and some people might have issues with Bluetooth, companies have been throwing in USB-C to 3.5mm adaptors in the box. HTC isn't like most companies, and doesn't seem to be doing that with the upcoming U12+. Read More >>
