Before you make up your mind to purchase a phone you have endless list of choices today. Each dawning day witnesses some new products being launched. You can now with ease select the mobile phone of your choice. But again, the abundant availability of choices often pushes you into dilemma about which handset to purchase. You needn’t panic. It may take a little extra time but you will be happy getting your choices. Whether you wish to purchase a handset of the most basic category with low price or the middle or of highest category, you have choices available in all segments. HTC Desire U price in India ranging around Rs 15-16000 indicates that it is of the middle category in both price and features. If you are used to the higher range of mobile phones, you may find it quite mediocre. But it is what it is. It is meant for the middle range users. And if you find yourself comfortable at this price range, you will certainly enjoy the features it provides you.
HTC Desire U has single core 1 GHz processor and no integrated GPU system. It has 4 inch display with WVGA resolution to enjoy reading, internet surfing or videos quite conveniently and we know that the overall touch response of HTC mobile is always commendable. You can find everything that you desire in a medium range mobile. In the midst of numerous medium range mobile phones its highlights are its 4 inch display, sense 400 UI, 1 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, 5 mega pixels camera, LED flash, Wi-Fi, 3G, 4GB on board storage, Bluetooth, beats audio and 1650 MAh battery. If you are well aware of the different features of mobile phones as per their price ranges, you would perhaps desire nothing more in HTC Desire U.
It is hardly wise to jump to conclusion to purchase a mobile. The features of mobile are of course important, but something that is more important is the feature that is of your use. You may have the 3G connectivity but you never use it. Your phone may have very good camera features and yet you hardly click a photo or record a video. You never make use of the multimedia features that your mobile has. You may wish to talk for hours but your battery does not support that long. So it is up to you which facilities you use in your mobile phone. But in the mobile phones of medium range like HTC Desire U, you find almost everything.
You may not use all the features at a time but certainly some or the other time you will be using the different features. HTC Desire U price in India is quite convenient for the middle range mobile users. It gives you everything that you wish. Be it the multimedia features like camera, music player, audio and video recording with different file format support. If you are a person well versed in social media, it is your best solution at this price range. Certainly you will find yourself more than satisfied for what you pay.

HTC One delays don’t seem to be ending. Now, UK retailer Clove is saying that the SIM-free silver version of the HTC One is further delayed and the first stock is expected on April 3. The Black version is coming even later on April 10.
With pre-orders crossing the expected HTC One units in the first stock, Clove is now stating that orders placed after March 26 will now be fulfilled in late-April, meaning the retailer is not expecting the second stock before April-end.
Clove noted the following on its blog:
If you have an order with Clove for a HTC One, or have been planning to place an order, please find the current stock situation below:
Silver HTC One – First stock delayed until next week, 3rd April.
Black HTC One – First stock delayed until 10th April.
Orders placed on or after 26th March are likely to ship late April.
With Galaxy S 4 availability fast approaching and the phone set to be released in April-end, these delays are going to cost HTC very much.
There is no word on the carrier-branded versions of HTC One, whether they will be available this week or not.
HTC had earlier stated that it will release HTC One is three countries – Taiwan, Germany and UK and other countries getting the phone next month, now we are not sure about this time-line.
HTC has just announced the developer edition of its flagship smartphone‘HTC One’ in the United States. The phone will come with both SIM and unlocked bootloader. According to the Taiwanese manufacturer, the phone will go on sale alongside HTC One retail edition in the country.
HTC One Dev edition comes with 64GB of internal storage instead of minimum 32GB storage in retail unit (16GB in Taiwan). Rest of the specifications of the dev edition are same as the retail unit, here is a look:
- 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor
- Open APIs for Bluetooth Low Energy, Infrared, and more
- Front-facing stereo speakers
- Two dual-membrane microphones for recording
- Multiple frequency compatibility: HSPA/WCDMA: 850/1900/2100 MHz, GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, LTE: 700/850/AWS/1900 MHz (US)
- 4.7 inch, Full HD 1080p, 468 PPI
- Android with HTC Sense
- GPS + GLONASS
- 4MP HTC UltraPixel Camera
- 2.1MP front camera
- 2300 mAh battery
“The HTC One Developer Edition will be available in limited quantities to customers with a US Zip Code for $649 when the HTC One is released in the United States,” HTC noted in a blog post.
In related news, HTC is having a hard time with One shipments and company stated that it will start fulfilling pre-orders in select countries by the end of March, followed by availability in other countries.
HTC recently introduced the revamped Sense interface in the form of version 5.0 along with HTC One smartphone. The interface is much lighter and cleaner than company’s previous Sense iterations.
Many of the One X, X+ and most importantly Butterfly users were wondering if they will by lucky enough to get the Sense 5.0 interface officially on their phones.
Well, according to HTC, it will indeed be bring Sense 5.0 to some of its devices (not sure which ones), but not all functionality of Sense 5 will be ported to these devices, which is expected.
HTC Sense 5.0 key features:
*Integration of TV control (won’t be coming to One X, X+, or Butterfly as there is no IR Blaster)
*Zoe Camera (probably this won’t come too)
As expected, HTC has officially launched HTC One smartphone just now at a press event. The smartphone will be available in over 80 countries beginning March on around 185 telecom operators. The features of the phone are in line with what are have seen in the leaks past few weeks.
To repeat them, HTC One runs on Android 4.1.2, Sense 5.0, 4.7-inch Super LCD 3 display, and 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor. Codenamed M7, HTC One also comes with 2GB RAM, 2300 mAh battery, NFC, 32GB/64GB of internal storage, and 4 megapixel camera with HTC Ultrapixel technology.
Company plans to sell it in both HSPA and LTE variants across the markets depending on the network availability. HTC One will be available in silver and black colour options.
“A new, exciting approach to the smartphone is needed and with the new HTC One, we have re-imagined the mobile experience from the ground up to reflect this new reality,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation.
Moving beyond the raw specifications, HTC One features a zero-gap aluminium unibody design, brand new Sense version with new additions like HTC BlinkFeed, HTC Zoe, HTC Sense TV and HTC BoomSound. As we stated before, HTC One packs an Ultrapixel camera. It is a custom camera, which comes with f/2.0 aperture lens and a new sensor technology that allows sensor to gather 300 percent more light than traditional smartphone camera sensors. The HTC One cameras also support multi-axis optical image stabilisation.
As we are coming close to the February 19 launch of HTC M7, the frequency of leaks pertaining to M7 has increased many folds. We have already seen the full set of specs, renders, live images and Sense 5.0. Only the details like pricing and availability of this flagship smartphone remain.
Well, after this report, we will only be waiting for the pricing, which is unlikely to be revealed ahead of the official launch.
According to a report in HTC Source, the M7 will be available starting March 8 in stores. The smartphone is likely to first go on sale in Europe and US, followed by Asia. As the company is announcing the smartphone simultaneously in both London and New York, chances are that at least UK and USA will get this phone on March 8.
The march availability will HTC advantage over Samsung Galaxy S IV, but given the fact that Sony’s Xperia Z will also go on sale around the same, the advantage will be limited, unless M7 turns out to be an earth-shattering smartphone, which is unlikely given the leaks so far.
The HTC Source also reveals that HTC M7 will be available black and silver/white colours. We have already seen images and render of black colour variant, we expect to see silver/white version soon.
To remind you, HTC M7 is expected to feature a 1.7GHz quad-core S4 Pro processor, 4.7-inch SoLux 1080p display, 13MP rear camera, front camera, Android 4.2, Wi-Fi, 2GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
Every once a while some or the other news publication comes up with an exclusive report suggesting they know that Facebook is indeed building a phone.
Despite Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s earlier statement that Facebook is not making a phone and that a “phone just doesn’t make any sense,” UK website Pocket Lint is reporting that they have exclusively learnt that Facebook phone is in development.
Their “very reliable source” has told them that HTC is working on this FB phone, which is codenamed as HTC Opera UL. This source also added, “It is the Facebook phone, made for Facebook.”
This particular source also claims that apparently the phone has been delayed, but fails to give a time frame of when we can see this device in the market (in case it is real).
HTC Opera UL was recently spotted on a benchmarking website, which revealed some of its specs, but did not have anything to support the claims of this being the Facebook phone.
HTC Opera UL will reportedly feature a 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor, Adreno 305 GPU, a 1280x720p display and Android 4.1.1.
We are having a hard time believing this report about a Facebook phone being in existence because some similar rumours about a Facebook phone are just too old and if it was real, it would have appeared until now. And, also HTC is struggling with dwindling profits and would not like to be part of an experiment, which is unlikely to pay off similar to its earlier attempt at pseudo Facebook phones in the form of HTC ChaCha and Salsa.

we’re seeing photos of HTC new phone,claimed to be Verizon’s variant, dubbed the DLX (“Deluxe”). Sure enough, it’s apparently packing 5″ inch 1080p display, a quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 8MP rear shooter and 2MP front. Otherwise, the source of the shots reports a 2,500 mAh battery, centered power button on the top, and capacitive touch buttons. It’s also running Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) and Sense 4+, along with Beats Audio. Physically, the device looks a lot like the One X(+) in that it’s a solid polycarbonate shell.
