The HTC One M9 doesn't, at first glance, look like a huge update over last year's One M8, but that doesn't necessarily mean it won't be an outstanding phone. Let's see how its features and specs compare to those of one of the best phones of 2014, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Read More

Most of us thought a MacBook Air with Retina Display would have arrived long before 2015, but that's how long Apple took getting this bad boy ready.

Is the HTC One M9 one of the biggest disappointments in mobile, or does its experience transcend its less than cutting-edge specs?
