Like many other Android smartphones, applications on the HTC One M9 are usually accessed and launched using the All Apps icon on the Home screen. The Apps screen is comprised of various apps pre-installed on the phone as well as those you downloaded and installed on your device. Please note that available applications may vary between carriers. Some carriers opted to add or remove certain apps to/from the phone. There are different ways for you to open an app from the Home screen. These include the following: Tapping an app on the launch...

The HTC One M9 and the One M9+ might not be making too much noise in the mobile industry, but the company is offering for some good news for the customers by announcing the Android M update for the aforementioned devices. HTC’s popular social media figure Jeff Gordon, gave out the information on Twitter. He didn’t give away information on when the update will be sent out, but we’re guessing it could be anytime by November or December this year as that’s when Google starts sending it out for its Nexus smartphones...

The first time you turn on and set up your HTC One M9, you will see the Home screen with the so-called HTC Sense Home widget you can set up according to your preference. With the HTC Sense Home widget, you can get access to apps, folders, and shortcuts you frequently used based on where you are, as it is schemed to change depending on whether you’re at work, home, or somewhere else. For example, applications you use often for work will display when you’re at your office. Here are the things you can do with the HTC One M9 Home...

According to a new report, the HTC One M9 smartphone could soon receive an update from the company, enabling support for the Guest Mode feature. This essentially allows your friends or peers to get a closer look of your brand new handset, but without the potential privacy concern as all the apps and content that you have in your main account are hidden. This feature is available by default on stock Android devices (running Lollipop or higher), so it’s a bit of a surprise that the company left out the feature with the One M9. But...

The HTC One M9 was unveiled in February with a launch taking place shortly after. However, the smartphone has faced one issue after the other, leading to the device not being the most popular among the critics. And new camera benchmark results are not helping the company’s case either. According to these reports, the One M9 ranks number 22 among smartphone cameras, which is a shameful result for a modern day flagship handset. Interestingly, the Amazon Fire Phone is shown to be doing better than the One M9 in terms of camera performance. The...

As they have done with other apps, HTC has moved the Sense Mail app to the Play Store. This allows for easier future updates to occur, since a firmware update takes longer to be pushed to users instead of an app update. There are no new features for this update, except that all future updates will now come from the Play Store. The Mail app works with Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Outlook, Exchange ActiveSync and other IMAP or POP3 email accounts, but only runs on newer Sense-based devices. So keep that in mind.

After sending out a factory reset protection related update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Sprint is now sending out another update, but for the HTC One E8 smartphone from last year. This update brings the massive Lollipop upgrade to the device, along with some neat user interface changes as well. HTC has confirmed this on Twitter as well, with the update officially scheduled to begin today. But as is the nature with OTA updates, don’t be disheartened if you’re not seeing it on your device right away. The update will introduce...

It’s no secret that the HTC One M9 hasn’t been successful in the market. More evidence to that fact is now coming through via supply chain sources. According to a new report, HTC has cut down component orders for the smartphone by up to 30%, which is a clear sign that it’s not forecasting a high volume of sales for the handset. Given the news, the company’s share prices dropped to NT$103.5 ($3.3) on the Taiwan Stock Exchange a couple of days ago, which is another setback for the Taiwanese manufacturer. They have...
