HTC updates their Desire Android series with the February 2015 Desire 626, greeting its users with a 5-inch HD screen adorned with the Sense UI and BlinkFeed home screen. Underneath its display is a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a Mali-T760 MP2 GPU, and an up-to-128GB microSD card slot (it has a 16GB on-board memory). The 626 captures Full HD (1080p) videos with both its rear and front cameras, which stand at 13 and 5 megapixels respectively. In charge of the power supply is a 2000mAh battery, and wrapping up its specs is the dual-purpose HTC Dot View Bright display case.
Unveiled a day before the MWC 2015 in Barcelona, HTC's 5-inch One M9 is bound to be of flagship stature with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64-bit processor, 20-megapixel sapphire-protected 4K-recording camera, and Sense UI v7.0. Its premium-class specs also include an UltraPixel selfie cam, a 3GB RAM, as well as a blend of HTC BoomSound and Dolby 5.1 on the audio front.
We found a 32GB on-board memory and a 2840mAh battery on this ultra high-end Android, which is crafted with a dual-tone metal (single colors are also available) unibody design. The One M9 is the first HTC phone to wear the second edition of the brand's Dot View Smart flip case.
Question #1: Should it be a smartphone or not?
The Desire Eye is a 5.2-inch Android from HTC primed to be a tough contender in the selfie and audio department. It sports a 13-megapixel rear camera and an equally capable 13-megapixel front-facing one up front. It complements the cameras with the HTC Eye Experience, which is HTC's version of photo- and video-enhancement tools. Behind its two-toned finish is a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 2GB worth of RAM, and a 2400mAh battery. The Eye also comes with 3 mics, as well as HTC's trademark BoomSound audio technology.
Windows fans now have the option of an HTC flagship, as this variant of the One M8 packs nearly identical features -- leave its Windows Phone 8.1 operating system. Along with this is the customizable Live Tile home screen that allows you to pin your favorite apps onto a single frame. Cortana is also in the mix, with HTC's Ultrapixel camera and BoomSound audio to boot. Just like the Android version, this model boasts a 2.3GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM as well as a 2600mAh battery. Its internal memory caps off at 32GB, while its microSD support caps off at 128GB.
This slight update to the 5.5-inch HTC Desire 816 sports a similar display size and Full HD resolution, but comes with two nano SIM card slots this time around. Like many HTC Androids, the Desire 816G Dual SIM offers the customizable BlinkFeed feature as well as the BoomSound audio technology. It is also rigged with a quad-core processor revved up at 1.3GHz. It does not sport any ultrapixel lens, but it does have a high-end 13-megapixel FHD camera, with a 5-megapixel selfie cam, too. Other hardware components include a 2600mAh battery and an 8GB internal memory (1GB RAM).
A more affordable version of the One M8 due to its plastic casing, but still retaining most of the flagship's high-end features. The E8 is designed for dual-SIM use, which was not offered by the M8. The quad-core 2.5GHz processor and up-to-128GB memory expansion slot also reserve its place among other top-line smartphones. While the M8 featured an Ultrapixel snapper, the E8 only features a 13-megapixel BSI camera (still capable of 1080p capture), which is probably another factor that contributes to its cheaper price tag.
Adding more enhancements to its well-known BoomSound speakers, HTC claims that the One M8 Harman Kardon edition sounds better than its standard One M8 twin. Aside from the included pair of AE earbuds, this audio-focused smartphone also features Harman's Clari-Fi and LiveStage audio processing technologies, promising studio-quality sound. Simply put, Clari-Fi claims to improve sound by restoring the quality of compressed audio files, while LiveStage adds dimension to music to create a more life-like earphone listening experience. What is not clear, however, is whether these two features come with some hardware enhancements or if they are purely software-based tweaks to make music sound different, like what we have seen in some devices.
This 4.5-inch model is an LTE-capable offshoot of HTC's One flagship, coming with signature specs like BoomSound audio and the customizable BlinkFeed home screen. Fitted with a similar curved frame as the original HTC One, it sports 13- and 5-megapixel Full HD cameras on either side of its body. Inside its shell, we found a 16GB internal memory, a 1.5GB RAM, and a quad-core processor humming at 1.2GHz. The Remix's 2100mAh battery also supports NFC, DLNA, and Bluetooth v4.0 with aptX.
The HTC Desire 816 flaunts its 13-megapixel camera (joined by a 5-megapixel front-facer) and its 5.5-inch main display (among the largest main displays for camera phones).
It is equipped with an impressive 2600 mAh battery (up to 1260 minutes of talk time), a respectable 1.6 Ghz quad-core processor, a 1.5GB RAM and 8GB of storage space (additional storage is up to 128GB). It is also 4G-capable and it comes with HTC's BoomSound system (dual front speakers and a built-in amplifiers) allowing users to view a lot more content with supposedly good quality audio.
HTC's flagship phone for 2014 bets on a new kind of camera called Duo Camera, which records capture depth information to allow focus change (and other tune ups) even after the picture is shot. Its memory expansion limit is a hefty 128GB and it promises a talk time of 20 hours and on-board memory can be up to 32GB.
