The HTC One M9+ was not the only device the Taiwanese manufacturer announced this week. In other news, we take a look at an LG G4 drop test and Chromecase gets new app support.
HTC has just announced the J Butterfly for Japanese users. The device will be launched exclusively through KDDI. We are not sure if it will reach other markets, but it’s definitely a device we want to take a look at.
The HTC J Butterfly is unique in that it comes with a lesser build quality, mostly composed of plastic, but what it lacks it materials it makes up in specs. This bad boy is arguably better than the HTC One M9!
Specs include a Snapdragon 810 processor, a 5.2-inch 2560x1440p display, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 20.2/13 MP cameras and a 2700 mAh battery.
Opinion: Not bad, right? It’s really the phone we were all expecing the HTc One M9 to be.
Drop tests are always fun, right? Well, not really. They mostly make me cringe, but these are good to see before buying a phone. After all, you do want to make sure your phone will be able to handle your active lifestyle.
Needless to say the video host totally shattered the screen, but the good news is that the phone still works. Previous iterations of the LG G series had this thing where you could no longer use the touch screen after the screen was damaged.
Opinion: I broke a couple LG G2 devices and have to say I was victim to that broken screen issue. It truly sucks, so it’s good to see the Lg G4 is different. Maybe we have that curved screen to thank for it!
Chromecast has no shortage of apps, which is why we usually don’t report when new developers add support to it, but today the HDMI dongle got support from some pretty major services.
These would be CBS All Access, Fox Now, FXNOW, HGTV Watch and Pluto TV. Beware, though, Fox Now, FXNOW and HGTV require a cable subscription.
Opinion: What is this, 2010?!
