HTC Americas today announced HTC Advantage, a new commitment to its U.S. customers that includes repairs and operating system updates. Under the terms of the program, HTC will offer a one-time free screen replacement to all One series devices sold after February 18, including the One, One mini, and the One max, during the first six months of ownership. The repairs will be performed in Houston. Further, the company is committing to provide all One series devices core system level updates for a period of two years after the initial launch date for each device. Timing of updates will vary depending on carrier, but HTC will deliver them as soon as it is able. HTC Advantage also offers customers free online storage for back-ups. Owners of One series phones will enjoy 25GB of Google Drive storage at no extra cost for a period of two years. Last, HTC is offering free backups through its own HTC Backup program. HTC Advantage is only available in the U.S.
HTC recently announced the Desire 601, a smartphone that falls into the middle of its range of devices. Here are our thoughts.
The HTC One mini is just what it sounds like: a shrunken version of HTC’s well-regarded flagship One. The mini is smaller in both stature and cost.
HTC's smaller Android smartphone is an excellent choice for the phablet-averse. It takes everything that was great about the One and stuffs it into an equally-attractive, yet more-usable, piece of hardware.

HTC today introduced the One mini, a smaller version of its flagship smartphone that offers many of the same high-end features with only a handful of trade-offs. The One mini sports an aluminum design that's similar to the full-sized One, but it reduces the size of the screen from 4.7 inches to 4.3 inches, and from 1080p HD resolution to 720p HD.
