HTC is a company currently going through a transition. Financial struggles have led them to focus on releasing just a handful of devices every year, with a clear focus on a premium design and finish to help ease pressures from shareholders.
Last year, we applauded one of the first devices to arrive from HTC’s new outlook. The M8 was not only a thing of beauty, but it outperformed nearly everything else on the market.
However, it was soon swept aside by the juggernaut that was the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC were left licking their wounds with sales still not hitting where they should be. A year has passed since then and with further cuts being made behind the scene, has HTC managed to finally release a device that can truly challenge Samsung with the gorgeous One M9? The jury is certainly out on this one.

This May Oscar® winning director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary “Mad Max” franchise, brings us “Mad Max: Fury Road,” a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky. Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows. Starring Tom Hardy (“The Dark Knight Rises”), Oscar® winner Charlize Theron (“Monster,” “Prometheus”), Nicholas Hoult (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”), Hugh Keays-Byrne (“Mad Max,” “Sleeping Beauty”) and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”).

Three UK is set to buy O2 UK in a deal worth £10.25bn.
Hutchison Whampoa, who owns Three UK, has reached an agreement with Telefonica, the company that own the UK arm of the O2 mobile network, to buy it outright.
The deal, worth £10.25bn will see Three become the largest network provider in the UK with an audience share of 41 per cent, its next closest rival being EE with 29 per cent.
The deal still has some way to go before being fully finalised, so you should expect to see changes in the High Street and your networks some time in late 2015 or early 2016, so there’s plenty of time for anyone worried about current contracts to decide whether to stay or go.
Android Lollipop brings a new feature that keeps your phone unlocked while it’s in your hand.
When you are trying to find your way around an unfamiliar area or are in the middle of a run it can be quite frustrating to have to repeatedly unlock your phone if you’ve only neglected it for a minute.
However, a new update on Android Lollipop should help you with that as you can now activate the on-body unlock feature, which keeps your phone unlocked as long as you’re holding it.
The feature uses the gyroscope inside the smartphone to recognise when you are holding it, rather than when it is in your pocket, and as long as you have the feature activated it won’t lock so you can flick it back on in a flash without having to type in your PIN or lock pattern.
