Android 5.1: Unwrapping a new Lollipop update

It seems that Android 5.1 is finally out! The Android team just posted on their blog that new update is ready and it brings quite a lot of changes, including stability fixes, performance improvements and offers a few new features like support for multiple SIM cards, Device Protection and high definition (HD) voice on compatible phones. 

"Whether you want to share your phone with a family member or better manage your mobile costs, Android Lollipop 5.1 now lets you use more than one SIM card on a device with multiple SIM slots."

"With Device Protection, your lost or stolen device will remain locked until you sign in with your Google account - even if someone resets your device to factory settings. This feature will be available on most Android phones and tablets shipped with Android 5.1 in addition to Nexus 6 and Nexus 9."

"High Definition voice calling is now on your mobile phone. Get crystal clear calling with HD Voice between compatible Android 5.1 devices like the Nexus 6 on T-Mobile or Verizon."
"Android 5.1 Lollipop also provides enhancements such as the ability to join Wi-Fi networks and control of your paired Bluetooth devices directly from Quick Settings."

HTC Sense 7.0 - Photo Editor

When you look at the HTC Sense 7.0 UI you might think it's not very different from the HTC Sense 6.0. In fact - apart from a few very obvious features like Sense Home with Smart Folders - most changes are either under the hood or are a part of extended functionality of a particular system component. One of such new extended functionality is HTC Photo Editor, which doesn't come as a separate, standalone app, but as a part of the HTC Gallery app ( And it has some really nice features!

"Sense Home" widget is connected with locations service and it automatically detects the location of your device, changing in a real time the content of the widget to "Home", "Work" or "Out".

Utopia in Progress: HTC One M9, HTC Grip & HTC Vive

HTC aims to improve lives by empowering consumers through smart technology to build deeper, more meaningful connections with the things that matter most in their lives.

HTC One M9 official specification

HTC One M9 is finally released! A great looking newest HTC high-end smartphone. Even if it's just an evolution in terms of the design, keep in mind that the HTC One M8 was multiple times rewarded for its design. So instead of making a complete change in this matter, HTC decided, once more, to keep the winning design and only make a few little changes. I believe this is a good move and the HTC One M9 will lead the leadership among other 2015 smartphones. Also, keep in mind that the whole hardware is way better - new SoC, improved camera, increased RAM memory and more! Details below!
