Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the same time. It’s a huge frenzy, commenters go nuts, and it’s a giant explosion of frantic opinion-sharing activity. For about … a day. And then it all goes away. Sure, there’s followup coverage as people find bugs and hidden features, but after that initial blast, not many people revisit the device to see how it feels a few months later, because everyone’s already focused on the next big deal coming down the pipe.

So let’s do something about that. Let’s see how we feel about devices when they’re not shiny and new anymore. This is After The Buzz.

  1. my htc one a9 overheats a lot (within minutes) I've tried apps like cooler master, but it honestly does not help at all. can someone please tell me if there is anything i can do to solve this annoying problem? thanks x

  2. So this is an "old" phone? Technology, especially phone technology, is a fucking tidal wave.

    I'm curious, how many people buy a new phone every year or every 18 months? Do you feel it's necessary? I'm still on an iPhone 6 (though I like Android and would happily own a Nexus).

  3. People insisting on the "iPhone clone" joke, please!
    How come none of you pointed out that the iPhone 6 design is blatantly plagiarized from the HTC One M8 design in the first place?!!!

  4. think it's time to unsubscribe pocketnow they've become more more intertwine with Apple -_- and let all the ifans know and the POS journalist know Apple copy the back design from HTC

  5. This phone was doomed from the start. It looks cool (i always liked IPhone's design, It's their software I can't bear with) and has decent specs but… 500$ dollars!? HELL NO! This phone should have been priced between 350 and 400 dollars, no more than that. There are wayyyyyyy better alternatives at the same price and even better ones for a bit more.
