HTC has tried its hand at the ‘mini’ smartphone segment with the likes of the One Mini and the One Mini 2 over the past two years. However, the two smartphones have barely seen any success in the market given the emergence of bigger phones. The company seems to be aware of this situation and has mentioned that it is moving towards what the market wants i.e. bigger phones. While speaking during the announcement of the One M9+, HTC’s President of North Asia, Jack Tong said – “Overall the industry is moving...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 (T807) from T-Mobile has started getting the Android 5.0.2 update as of today.
