New update transforms HTC’s latest flagship into a portable Amazon Echo

Amazon Alexa App

If you have an Echo Dot from Amazon, we've told you on several occasions about a very cool accessory from Vaux that instantly transforms it into a portable Alexa speaker. There's even a less expensive option called the Fremo Evo, and it's far more compact as well. The Echo Dot is a pretty awesome portable speaker, but even with the smaller Evo accessory it still won't fit in your pocket. Of course, some day just about every Android phone will also be an Alexa phone as Amazon continues to build new partnerships that push Alexa's reach further than ever before, and the first flagship Android phone with Alexa voice service built in was released earlier this year. Now, however, a new Alexa phone joins the fray, and it's by far the hottest option yet for people looking to carry Amazon's virtual personal assistant in their pockets.

HTC users blast company after ads appear on the default keyboard

Android Keyboard HTC

As far as mobile advertising is concerned, the less intrusive they are the better. While some websites have frustrating ads that forcefully interject themselves into your web browser, users can easily fight back by refusing to visit sites with insufferable ads. But what happens when mobile users can't escape pestering ads because they're inextricably tied to the OS itself?

HTC Vive’s second E3 finds VR gaining some AAA steam

 HTC is back at E3 this year for its sophomore turn at the gaming expo, after its first show in 2016 following closely on the heels of the Vive VR headset’s consumer launch. I spoke to HTC VP of VR Dan O’Brien at this year’s E3, to find out a bit about how the company sees the market, its role therein and the state of VR in general now that it’s not the newest kid on… Read More

HTC told us why the HTC U11 doesn’t have a bezel-less display

HTC U11 Specs

In the early hours of the morning while most people in the United States were sound asleep, HTC unveiled its next-generation flagship smartphone. The HTC U11 made its debut in Taipei, emerging as a solid contender to other 2017 flagship smartphones (at least, on paper, but we'll discuss that in a separate post). The U11 sports a unique design with what HTC refers to as "liquid design language," characterized by smooth lines and mirror-like colored finishes that really catch light in a beautiful way. But not all of the defining elements of HTC's U11 design are so impressive.

In 2017, every major smartphone maker is moving toward a new display design that does away with the large bezels surrounding a phone's screen. LG's G6 achieved a screen-to-body ratio in the high seventies, Samsung managed an 83% screen-to-body ratio on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 is expected to be even more impressive. But HTC's new U11 sports the same old look we've seen for a decade now. Why isn't HTC on board with this exciting new trend? BGR got the answer straight from the horse's mouth.

HTC U11 hands-on: Taking on the Galaxy S8 in style

HTC U11 Release Date

What will it take to contend with Samsung? The South Korean consumer electronics giant just released its most impressive flagship smartphones ever, featuring power and a design that no other company can match. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ would undoubtedly sell themselves to an extent, but having tremendous carrier support and Samsung's multi-billion dollar marketing budget certainly doesn't hurt. How can any other Android phone vendor hope to compete?

For HTC, the company will look to set its 2017 flagship HTC U11 apart in two ways. The first is with some sleek and unique styling and a design identity unlike anything we've seen from other phone makers. And the second is with a novel new feature called Edge Sense that HTC hopes will be enough to turn some heads in its direction.

HTC’s new Hail Mary: Two U phones with novel ideas

HTC U Ultra and U Play Release Date

HTC made two of the best smartphones money can buy, but the company can’t talk about them. The Pixel and Pixel XL are Google’s phones even if they’re actually made by HTC. Aside from the Pixels, HTC isn’t doing very well in the mobile business, but it’s not ready to throw in the towel. The company came forward with a couple of new phones which have new branding and novel features (for HTC phones).

HTC avoided the early January CES show and didn’t want to wait until late February to unveil the U Ultra and U Play. It announced the pair of phones very early on Thursday in what looks like the company’s latest Hail Mary in the smartphone business
