The world has gotten a glimpse of the HTC One X10 smartphone – the latest addition to the company’s mid-range line of devices – after its recent release in the US market. Despite its affordable mid-range price, the device includes premium features that are typically found in devices that are far more expensive.
HTC introduces the U Play smartphone into their mobile inventory. The latest offering from HTC is a value-for-money smartphone that consists of many plus points. Design wise, HTC has taken its cues from U Play’s higher-priced brother, the U Ultra. Hence, the device looks better than most of the smartphones that are marketed in the same price bracket. The U Play sports the same metallic liquid surface form factor that can be found on the U Ultra and the body fits perfectly with the U Play’s 5.2-inch display.
It is hard for companies to contain unwanted leaks being exposed to the public but HTC has managed to do it. HTC has kept one feature of the U11 a secret until now – its camera features. Although there were several leaks prior to the smartphone’s launch such as a squeezy interface, high-gloss glass back, a USB-C port rather than a headphone jack, the device’s camera features have only been unveiled yesterday.

An Elegant and Beautiful Design have many called the HTC One E9 a flagship smartphone in disguise, and it is not hard to see why. Clad entirely in a soft-touch polycarbonate body, the One E9 looks remarkably humble – yet it retains an air of luxury that is uncommon among many mid-range smartphones today. The soft-touch finishing on the One E9 feels comfortable in the hands; feeling like a perfect blend of form and function; it gives a handy grip for people to hold as well. To further emphasize on luxury, the One E9 has a large camera window on the back where the powerful 13 megapixel camera sits
Taking a front of the One E9 will make you realize that this is a rather large smartphone, even more so when you factor in that it has a large 5.5-inch display and the pair of powerful BoomSound speakers – a hallmark of HTC's strive for better sound in a smartphone. But even if it is a large smartphone, the HTC One E9 is remarkably light at only 148 grams.
The HTC One E9 looks the part of a very subtle luxury smartphone, but it also packs an incredibly powerful octa-core processor inside that is clocked at 2 Ghz. The powerful processor delivers on all fronts to give the best performance possible. Your apps will open quicker, switching between the applications will also be quicker, your games will run fluidly – experience speed like no other with the HTC One E9.
The One E9 also utilizes a large Full High Definition display that measure 5.5 inches diagonally. It shows you more content and less bezels; games, movies, and even your Internet browsing will all appear in greater clarity and offer a better viewing experience.
Sound is just as important as visuals when it comes to watching movies or playing games. That is why you will experience a superior experience when it comes to audio and visuals with the HTC One E9. Flanking the large 5.5-inch Full HD display is a pair of HTC's very own signature BoomSound speakers. These speakers dish out great sounds for all of your videos and music; rich warm bass tones and crystal clear highs – this is about the best you can ever get with sound on a smartphone.
