Accessibility options on the HTC One M9

4

Just as every smartphone is different, so, too, are the people who use them. And accessibility options can make things much more usable for some.

An important but often overlooked feature on our smartphones has to do with accessibility. In fact, if you've never dived that deep into the settings on your phone, there's a chance you've never seen them before. But for a good many folks out there, accessibility features mean the difference between being able to use the phone and having an expensive toy that simply won't work them whatever reason.

We're continuing to take a look at the accessibility features in some of Android's biggest smartphones. And here, now, are the accessibility options on the HTC One M9.

Sony Xperia Z4: The Android Central wishlist

84
Xperia Z4

What do we want to see from the next Sony flagship?

Curiously, Sony didn't show off a new flagship smartphone at Mobile World Congress last month, instead opting to refresh its tablet lineup and show us some new mid-range phones. We're still expecting an Xperia Z4 before long though, and given the company's solid track record with the Z3 and Z3 Compact, Sony's next big thing promises to be one of the more interesting high-end Android phones of the year.

So what are our hopes for the new Sony flagship? We've got a list prepped after the break.

This week's sidebar poll: Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge - which are you buying?

214
Galaxy S6 family

Samsung is busting out two flagships this spring. Which has your eye?

In one hand, we have the Samsung Galaxy S6. It's the next iteration of the insanely popular Galaxy S line, and while some major changes in the battery and storage department have come along, it's the "traditional" choice and an expected successor. People are gonna love it.

In the other hand, we have the Galaxy S6 edge (it kills me not to capitalize the e). Sleek, curvy and dare I say pretty, it's the Galaxy S6 with a new style and a few cool side-a-licious things going on with it's curved front display. Welcome to the future, baby. People are gonna love it, too.

Which one are you going to buy? Or are you going to buy both? Or neither? Take the poll, then tell us why in the comments.
