Mobile Madness is underway and the first, play-in round, saw the HTC One M9 go up against the LG G3. Eventually the newly announced HTC One M9 won it by over 30-percentage points. Now the HTC One M9 will go up again Apple’s phablet, the iPhone 6 Plus. Which would you select? It is hard to gauge, especially considering different processors, different operating systems and the screen sizes also vary. Though I will say, both look very nice.
I think what is especially though in this year’s mobile madness is just how great all these flagship devices are. I would gladly pick up any one of these devices and be more than happy to use them as my daily driver, regardless of operating system. I think that is a great thing for consumers, especially if you’re plopping down a few hundred dollars for these devices. Both these next two devices are great! I love the design and feel of both. So what will it be? HTC’s newest flagship? or Apple’s phablet? As always read down further to get more details on both devices. Vote in the poll below!
And join us again tomorrow as we let you decide this year’s champ for mobile madness. Have fun!

Android 5.0 Lollipop ran well on the device during our hands-on, and HTC’s new Sense 7 user interface doesn’t add any drag to the experience. We’ve always liked Sense, and Sense 7 is a solid step forward… read more
It’s no easy task reviewing an iPhone. Apple isn’t like other phone makers and doesn’t create and launch several smartphone models throughout the year.
Instead, once per annum, Apple announces the new devices that it’s going to sell for the entire next 12 months. That’s it. It takes one shot a year, sits back and focuses on the next project on the table. Still, despite that approach, it manages to go toe-to-toe with Android makers that fire off several rounds each year… read more
