The HTC Re camera: An AC editor roundtable

HTC Re camera

Here's what we think about HTC's RE camera now that we've used it a bit.

When HTC announced the RE camera in the fall of 2014, plenty of people were curious. HTC is branching out and building "lifestyle" products (their words, not mine) and started with an accessory that was odd-looking, yet intriguing. It didn't look like a handheld camera (or even a GoPro), but it had a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens and a promise of being able to take great pictures. We all had to try it.

Fast forward a few months, now that we all have had a while to give the RE camera a real-life workout, and it's time we gave our long-term impression about the handheld camera that looks like an asthma inhaler.

Strap in and have a read.

Wireless charging, in plain English

Qi transmitter coil

Wireless charging isn't magic, just convenient.

Wireless charging, like the Qi charging many Android phones use, isn't new technology. My Panasonic electric razor used it many years ago, and most of us have seen toothbrushes that charge wirelessly in a cradle. And of course, we can't forget Palm and the way they brought wireless charging (though a different standard) to the masses with the Touchstone. Now that size, cost and efficiency constraints have all eased up a little, putting wireless charging in something like your Android phone or watch makes perfect sense.

We get more than a few questions about wireless charging and how it works, so let's take a few minutes and talk about the basics — what it is, how it works and why you would want it in your next Android purchase.
