After the pictures are taken, you can stitch the images together to create a video highlight reel.

Video showing HTC Sense 6 leaks, shows a slew of “Motion Launch” gestures

htc_sense_6_video_leak

The All New HTC One (or the HTC One 2014) is coming on March 25. While we have gotten plenty of looks at the hardware, the software has remained out of the spotlight… until now. Over on YouTube, someone posted a look at what Sense 6, HTC’s software skin, will look like. The video did not go too far into things; however, we now know that HTC will certainly be utilizing motion gestures.

Like the LG G2, the user can wake the device by double tapping the display. Also, swiping to the left will bring up the widgets panel and swiping to the left activates HTC’s BlinkFeed. Swiping up will bypass the lockscreen (if you do not have a password).

Hit the break for a re-posted version of the video as the original has been pulled.

U.S. panel rules that HTC, ZTE and Huawei did not violate FlashPoint patents

HTC_One_Back_HTC_Logo_TA

A U.S. panel ruled today that HTC, ZTE and Huawei did not violate digital camera patents made by FlashPoint, an Apple spinoff. FlashPoint originally filed the complaint in 2012, and accused all three of the companies of infringing four patents related to phone cameras. One of those patents was dropped as the case moved forward.

In September 2013, a judge found in a preliminary decision that the HTC Vivid and HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE infringed upon one of the patents, while both ZTE and Huawei were cleared. The panel ruled in a final decision that none of the companies infringed on any patents made by FlashPoint.

325HTConem8

We’re less than two weeks away from an announcement for the all new HTC One. As such, HTC is teasing the hell out of us on its UK Twitter account. With t-minus 11 days in counting we can expect that this teasing will continue to ramp up prior to the announcement of the M8. With a Verizon branded All New One making its way to eBay, and a leak involving a sales guide for the device, there’s not much left to know about the device.

Analysts project Lenovo to become 2nd largest Android manufacturer

kutcher_lenovo

It’s no secret that Samsung has complete control over the Android smartphone market. The company has a market share of 65%, and has a marketing campaign that essentially squashes the competition.

Its main competitors, LG, HTC, Sony and Motorola have global market shares of 7%, 6%, 5% and 4% respectively.

Analysts are suggesting that these market shares will soon change. Lenovo, which recently purchased Motorola Mobility, will expand the brand to new markets in Europe, China and emerging markets. With a new focus, Lenovo/Motorola may be able to surpass LG’s 7% market share. Although making a run at Samsung may seem a bit far-fetched right now, it might not be in the future.

Verizon_HTC_One_2014_M8_Retail_Packaging_01

Ever since it was leaked that HTC was going to refer their new flagship (the M8) as the “All New HTC One,” everyone jumped on it like it was going to be the official name. There was no way HTC was going to make the actual official name the “All New HTC One,” but they will refer to it as such because, yes, it literally is the “All New HTC One” isn’t it?

HTC ‘Power To Give’ project helps cure Aids, Alzheimer’s Disease and Cancer through your smartphone

htc-power-to-give-logo

A few weeks ago, HTC announced the ‘Power To Give’ project which is aimed at utilizing the unused processing power of your smartphone to process data and solve scientific problems.

This means that when your phone is idle, you can put the unused processing power into good use by donating some of it to help support research aimed at finding a cure for AIDS, Alzheimer’s Disease, and cancer. All you have to do is to download the ‘HTC Power To Give’ application from the Play Store and join the cause. The app will only work when your phone is being charged and has a battery level of 85%. During the night, “your phone will join an enormous secure computing grid” which aids research projects around the world.
