HTC's One M9 launched earlier in the year with the company's brand new Sense 7 Android UI, still probably the best third party Android skin.

By Luke Jones on Monday August 10, 2015

Thing are not going well for HTC as sales have tanked in 2015 due to the poorly received One M9 flagship, resulting in huge losses and tumbling share prices. Those shares have hit a ten year low in fact, not great for a company that has only been operating since 1997. Things have gone from bad to worse as it has now emerged that HTC currently has no brand value.

HTC One M9+ Officially Unveiled for Europe
By Luke Jones on Thursday July 16, 2015

We wondered how long this would take. HTC has launched its One M9+ in Europe, the device is a super version of the regular One M9 flagship and the company said when it launched that the Plus would not arrive in Europe or indeed the USA. However, disastrous sales of the One M9 proper have meant the company needs to do something to rejuvenate interest in its flagship line, and as such we would not be surprised to see the One M9+ come to the United States in due course as well.

By Luke Jones on Wednesday July 15, 2015

HTC is in trouble, the company is losing money and it is evident that the One M9 flagship is not the answer to solving those woes.

Now the struggling Taiwanese giant has also confirmed that the 2014 flagship, the One M8, will also be getting Android M.

By Luke Jones on Thursday July 09, 2015

HTC recorded a hefty loss through the last quarter, making a definite end to the company's mini turnaround.

HTC Records Terrible Second Quarter Loss
By Luke Jones on Tuesday July 07, 2015

HTC announced its second quarter financials today and there was not much surprise to see the results were not good. After a number of quarters turning a profit, the company?s minor comeback came to a grinding halt as it dipped below the red line. The reason for that is the lukewarm reception the One M9 flagship received from critic and consumer alike.
