Review: HTC G1
Pictures taken with the G1 are okay. I wasn't wowed by them at all, but they didn't disappoint me either. Colors looked good both inside and out, and white balance was mostly accurate. In bright sunlight, however, light colored objects were often washed out. Inside, there was often a haze visible if the subject were close to a light source such as a window or lamp. Using the autofocus meant most images were sharp, and I saw very little grain, even with indoor shots. Images captured with the G1 are certainly worthy of adding to your MySpace or Facebook profile, though I wouldn't be tempted to blow them up to 16 x 20 size and frame them in my living room.
Hands-on with the T-Mobile G1 from HTC, the first phone to run Google's Android smartphone platform. Plus hands-on with 3rd-party applications.
HTC's U11 Life is a mid-range handset disguised as a flagship smartphone. This affordable Android device steals its good looks and many of its features from HTC's more expensive U11.
HTC's 2018 flagship is the U12+, a large Android slab with a big screen, front and rear dual cameras, see-through glass, and squeezable actions. The phone offers top specs in a modern piece of hardware that's attractive, powerful, and sadly flawed in some respects.
The Pixel 3 from Google is an intelligent phone that wants to help you. The Google Assistant is baked into every facet of the Pixel 3, and together with Android 9 Pie it will learn who you are, what you like to do, and what you need as you move throughout your day.

HTC today announced the U12+, its flagship handset for the year. The phone carries over the "liquid design" from last year's U11, but updates the color selection for the metal-and-glass chassis.
