The Android CentralHTC One M9 review is our collective, in-depth guide to HTC's 2015 flagship, covering everything from hardware to software to camera quality. However with a major Android device like this, it's worth presenting a second opinion.
The HTC One M9 is the latest in a line of highly successful phones for HTC. 2013's M7 and 2014's M8 were among the best Android phones available at the time, and the past two generations of HTC One hardware hold up well to this day.
There were a couple of things about last year's M8 that held me back from using it more, however: The anxiety-inducing slipperiness of the curved metal body, and the generally disappointing Ultrapixel camera.
I've been using the M9 on and off this past month, and for the most part I've found it an enjoyable phone to use — certainly HTC's best to date. However the Taiwanese company hasn't overcome all of the shortcomings of its previous flagships. And with Samsung finally upping its game in a few important areas, not to mention the prospect of another strong LG flagship on the horizon, the M9 could have its work cut out.
With that in mind, let's take another look at HTC's 2015 flagship.

Following yesterday's report, Comcast has pulled out of talks to merge with rival Time Warner Cable, announcing today the company has terminated all agreements. The deal is off.
Comcast originally announced the deal to merge with TWC back in 2014, which was valued at $45.2 billion in stock. The merge was met with criticism from not only the general public but government officials (namely the FCC) too. Today, the merge finally caved in, with Comcast CEO Brian Roberts confirming in a statement that the deal is off and the company is moving on.

The fitness-forward face computer we've been hearing about for years has arrived, but its software isn't fully baked just yet.
It may have taken the company a lot longer than originally expected to start shipping their wearable fitness computer, but we've finally got a Recon Jet in our hands to play with. While Recon Jet was originally compared to Google Glass, due largely to being the only other viable face computer with a price tag dramatically lower than Google's offering, Recon Instruments couldn't be more clear about the purpose of this computer. It's a fitness accessory, allowing you to track your runs and rides without disconnecting you from the digital world. There's even a camera so you can grab that quick photo or video of something cool you see on your excursions. And most important, it's all baked into a pair of high-end, polarized sunglasses that are supposed to be comfortable enough to wear while performing these activities.
With well over a year of redesigns and polish, including a fun promo video showing off everything the device can do, lets take a look and see what's going on with this crazy face computer.

Speaking in the Google Q1 2015 earnings call, CFO Patrick Pichette indicated Nexus revenues declined this quarter.
Revenues from the Play Store (and now Google Store) are such a small portion of Google's business that they're clumped into an "other revenues" category each quarter, but that doesn't stop the company from reporting how they impact the bottom line. In Q1 2015 the other revenues segment actually grew substantially, despite an actual decline in earnings from selling Nexus devices.
