HTC One Outperforms Competition

Shockingly -- in a completely non-shocking way -- it looks like the HTC One really is one of the most powerful smartphones currently available. ZDNet ran a number of tests on the HTC One, the LG Nexus 4, and the Xperia Z. The One takes the cake in RAM and CPU tests, but loses when it comes to gaming graphics. Further tests involve the iPhone 5 and iPad, with the One still leading the pack on the majority of them. A word of caution: these tests are mostly done for fun. Everyday users are probably not going to feel some of these differences, so don't start bashing your friend's Nexus 4 just yet. Benchmark tests have been a proud tradition for techies for years. Does any of this influence your decision to pick up the One? Source: ZDNet

Reminder: HTC One Launches Tomorrow

The HTC One is set to officially release tomorrow. Of course, there are some that have been lucky enough to score one early through AT&T. The device launches on AT&T and Sprint, while T-Mobile will launch their's in a few days. It's pretty much an indisputable fact right now that HTC One is the smartphone to beat. Even though HTC has had their problems, there haven't been any reports of stock shortages. We'll have one soon to tinker with.

HTC 606w Out in the Wild in China

The HTC 606w is the answer for those that scoff at the HTC One's price. The design of the 606w is similar to the One and it even features an ultrapixel camera. At the very least it looks like this one is going to hit China first and it may even turn out to be an exclusive for the region. There are conflicting reports out there over whether or not this is the M4, so hang tight for now. It would a lot of sense for HTC to introduce a mid-range version of the One, but it would be surprising to see one so soon after the release of the original. Via: GSMInsider

T-Mobile HTC One Also Features No Branding

Much like the Sprint version, the T-Mobile edition of the HTC One will have no carrier branding. The usual T-Mobile software will still be found upon start-up, but nowhere will the phone be marked. It looks like this is the start of an interesting trend. Exterior carrier branding, though agitating to some, never seemed to be a serious stickler with consumers before. Perhaps this is a way to further promote the thinking that the HTC One is truly a premium device. The iPhone is another high-profile device that features no carrier branding. The T-Mobile version will arrive on April 24th. Via: Gotta Be Mobile

Aluminum Galaxy Note III Just HTC PR?

A story circulated the other day saying that Samsung was going to change their building materials going forward due to the overwhelming response to the HTC One. It was the kind of thing that sounded both fishy and highly believable. Now Eldar Murtazin, a well-known tech blogger, seems to be stating that it was all HTC PR trying to drum up even more support for the HTC One. If that's true it only puts them a small step ahead of Samsung when it comes to adolescent behavior, but it's still too early to know anything. Murtazin's tweet is anything but definitive, and is more than a little vague. Something will develop in this little story soon enough. Possibly before the end of the day. Via: Know Your Mobile

T-Mobile HTC One to Release April 24th? (UPDATE: CONFIRMED))

According to an internal memo that found its way to TmoNews, T-Mobile will have the HTC One at "select stores" starting April 24th. T-Mobile will be offering the HTC One without a contract and an installment plan. For that prefer to live their lives un-tethered to a carrier, being able to pick up the HTC One five days after AT&T and Sprint isn't so bad.

What Creative Marketing Can Do

It should be well-known by now that HTC doesn't have the marketing budget to match Samsung's. In March, Business Insider reported that Samsung's 2012 marketing budget was $227 million ahead of HTC. Believe it. Of course, that takes into account Samsung's budget for all markets, not just North America. The HTC One is the device that's going to get HTC back on its feet, but spending an astronomical amount of money is not how HTC is going to do it. What they're going to do, and what they're currently already doing, is to spend creatively and where it counts. The reception to HTC's partnership with Funny or Die has been mixed, to say the least. That doesn't necessarily translate to failure. Even if people don't think it's funny, it still represents a tap into a valuable market that's already gone viral. Besides being spread naturally by everyone talking about how terrible they think it is, it's also going to air on Adult Swim, various sites and in movie theaters. That's a lot of power behind one iffy spoof. But they didn't even need to go that far. The HTC One Live Tour would have been enough. An old-school trek through valuable markets in the country? Sounds good. It's a very good idea to let consumers try out the product before they buy it. Combined with the massive amount of good vibes already coming from the blogosphere at large and you have yourself the beginnings of a successful campaign without constant billboards and commercials. For the moment it appears that HTC has everyone right where it wants them. The strength behind them is not an excess of capital; it's a very strong product. The buzz surrounding the HTC One -- which some lucky users already have their hands on -- is really what's fueling this machine. Even if you consider the Van Der Beek ad to be a major blunder, it's going to get the job done. For now, this is how HTC is going to turn things around. Let's all hope they're smart enough not to muck it up now.

HTC Stocks Could Spike in Next Six Months

Good news keeps coming for HTC. Daiwa Securities has reported that HTC stock could rise 15% over the next six months. This, of course, would be to the expected success of the HTC One. Just a short time ago it seemed that the end was actually in sight for HTC, but they've been able to make an impressive comeback. Things are currently going so well that apparently Samsung is getting worried and cagey. If everything goes smoothly, HTC will once again be considered a major competitor in the smartphone market. As things move forward, CEO Peter Chou's previous promise that he would resign if the HTC One failed seems less and less pathetic. Fortunately he knew what he was doing all along.

HTC One Popping Up Early at Some AT&T Stores

According to tipsters at Android Community, certain AT&T stores have the HTC One in stock right now. Does that excite you? Make you mad? Green with envy? Go get one then. Today is actually the release date of the HTC First. It would be quite delicious if AT&T employees are having trouble differentiating between the two. Some users have been able to pick up their pre-orders today, so it might be worth a shot. The HTC One officially launches in North America on the 19th. Four days early ain't bad.

Samsung Rattled by HTC One Design?

According to an insider tip to SamMobile, Samsung has been somewhat cowed by what some have been calling "superior build quality" in the HTC One. The upcoming Galaxy S4 relies on a plastic build which now seems inferior to the HTC One's aluminum build. Regardless of the Galaxy S4's technical performance it seems that it's already off to a shaky start. With that in mind the insider goes on to note that Samsung will be switching it up for their upcoming devices. This includes the Galaxy Note III. What this specifically means has yet to be seen, but one way to communicate that a device is supposed to be premium is with build quality. Aluminum based Galaxy Note III? Perhaps. Source: SamMobile
