The new HTC One M9 Full Reviews Techradar

The new HTC One M9 Full Reviews Techradar, HTC flagship phones are typically among the most beautiful models launched every year. Often they are also slightly smaller than the increasingly large phones Samsung and LG put out. Now it seems that HTC could break with tradition and offer a large badge with the One M9. It's here. The new HTC One M9 has been announced, and it's already going to vying for the title of best phone in 2015, such is the combination of design and high power specs. 

The new HTC One M9 release date, news and features Techradar

While loads of the mooted specs didn't actually appear, the new phone has finally been launched following loads of leaks all over the internet, and it doesn't disappoint, with upgrades in nearly every area.

HTC One M9 release date

HTC sent out invites to an event on March 1 at MWC 2015 in Barcelona, and that's where we saw the new phone.

The Taiwanese brand has confirmed that the phone will be launching in mid-March for Taiwan and Europe, with the US slightly later towards the end of the month. There's no news on cost at the moment, but it seems very likely to be the same price as before - £549 / $649 / AU$849, with contracts starting at £36 in the UK.

Design HTC One M9

It's another full metal uni-body on the HTC One M9, after near universal praise for the One M8's distinctive design. The design was one of the key reasons we voted it TechRadar's Phone of the Year 2014, and it's back again.

The HTC One M9 features a 5-inch 1080p display, set inside a body with 144.6 x 69.7 x 9.61mm dimensions, making it a little shorter than the One M8 but also a little fatter.
The added thickness is as much about ergonomics as it is about the upgraded battery, which has been boosted to 2800mAh.

The phone will be coming in three colours: the 'hero' colour of silver with a gold band, gunmetal grey and all gold.

HTC One M9 camera and battery

The HTC One M9 has finally ditched the Ultrapixels... at least, on the back of the phone. On the front the largely misunderstood dual 4MP UltraPixel has been moved to the front of the HTC One M9, to offer improved low light performance for selfies. 
The battery pack is also more impressive: that 2800mAh power unit is one of the biggest HTC has ever packed into a phone, and with the lower power screen that's going to help keep your phone chugging along for (hopefully) longer than a single day.

HTC One M9 OS and power

It's official: the HTC One M9 will be powered by the 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810, as Qualcomm first teased and then confirmed as much earlier before it appeared on the official spec sheet. That's good news, because as well as being powerful and efficient it brings improved 4K support.

The new chip should help improve battery life as well, with improved efficiency, plus less interesting but useful things like carrier aggregation and VoLTE are included as standard.

In terms of actual specs, the HTC One M9 will have 3GB of RAM and an octa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, with four cores running at 2.0GHz and four at 1.5GHz, allowing it to switch between them depending on what it's doing, using the slower cores to conserve battery when the extra power isn't needed.

Beyond that the One M9 is obviously running Android 5.0 Lollipop with its own Sense 7.0 UI interface over the top, which offers new tricks like a contextual widget that will display different apps depending on where you are - it's pretty cool.

You'll also be able to make your own themes - simply take a snap, the phone will analyse the image and use that colour palette for apps and icons.

HTC One M9 other features

The HTC One M9 supports dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.1, giving it improved Wi-Fi performance over the One M8.

Rumors pointed toward both 32GB and 64GB internal storage options accompanied by a microSD card slot, but while the expansion is here there's no 64GB option - it's just 32GB, with 21GB available to install stuff onto.
There will also be some HTC One M9 related accessories including a DotView 2 case as well as a clear protective case, that can be turned into a stand for watching media and a waterproof cover with an IP68 rating.

HTC One M9 rivals

HTC's big flagship has some stiff competition. The iPhone 6 is a big rival for the handset and has already staked its claims as one of the best looking and strongest performing mobile phones ever.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is heavily rumored to launch with a metal uni-body, making it even more similar to the HTC One range than ever before. Expect some similar level specs but quite a different design when both are announced.

Then there's also the likes of the LG G3 and the Sony Xperia Z3. Both phones have been on the market for over six months now but it's going to be a little way off until we finally see the next iterations of both handsets meaning these will be some of the main competition for the One M9 for quite a while.

Use the Moto G with Tracfone BYOP

How to Use the Moto G on Tracfone: A Guide by de9w2dsl

This Guide to using a Motorola, Moto G on the Tracfone BYOP program is put together by de9w2dsl with help from many visitors to this blog who shared their knowledge and experience.

moto g tracfone
Use the Moto G on Tracfone BYOP
The Moto G is a very popular mid-level smartphone widely available on many carriers, and unlocked. But wouldn't it be nice if such a solid Android phone were usable with Tracfone prepaid service? Well keep reading...

Tracfone is a prepaid, low cost cell phone and service provider. They offer minute cards with varying amounts of minutes, and cell phones to use the minutes with. 

In 2013, Tracfone first began offering Android powered smartphones for use on their prepaid network. Since then, they have continued to add new Android phones to the list of phones they offer. These Android phones are locked to Tracfone, and cannot be used with other providers. (See the full list of phones, with basic specs and features compared, on our Tracfone Android Phone List.)

And while the Android phones they offer are getting better, like the LG Ultimate 2, they still are a few years behind, and have limited options.

And then came along the Tracfone BYOP program.

Introduction to Tracfone BYOP

The 'Bring Your Own Phone' program, or Tracfone BYOP, allows users to bring a wider variety of smartphones to use with Tracfone prepaid service. Phones are limited to only those that use Verizon 3G, but this still offers some great possibilities, including the Motorola Droid 3, Samsung Fascinate, and even the iPhone 4S.

See the full list of phones, and all the details on the program, on our Tracfone BYOP page.

These are pretty good phones, but not all of them have the latest operating systems, and some are a few years old. It would be nice to have a newer phone, with the latest OS and decent screen, with Tracfone's super low cost service. However, BYOP phones do receive Triple Minutes for Life which is nice.

The details on which phones work with Tracfone BYOP (beyond that it must be Verizon 3G) are a little murky. And it doesn't help that Customer Service are notorious for giving out bad information and telling customers one phone won't work, when later it does end up working. 

But there were hopes for the Verizon branded 3G Moto G, which retails for just $100 (or less) and is for use with Verizon prepaid service. 

Now, multiple sources are confirming activating a Moto G on Tracfone, so we are sharing this information with you so that you can have the option of using the Moto G with Tracfone BYOP if you so desire.

What is the Moto G?

The Moto G is an Android powered smartphone created by Motorola while they were owned by Google (Motorola is now owned by Lenovo)

The Moto G has a first and second generation, but we will be talking only about the first generation Moto G which was released in 2013. The newer Moto G (2nd gen) which was released in Sept. 2014, does not work with Tracfone at this time.

The Moto G (1st Gen) is a workhorse kind of phone that does the daily tasks efficiently and painlessly. It has a 4.5" IPS display with Gorilla Glass 3 protection that is stunning, especially when compared to more expensive phones. It features front and rear cameras, with flash and autofocus on the rear 5 MP camera.

Let's take a quick look at the list of specs for the Moto G:

Moto G Specs and Features

The Moto G has a number of features that are somewhat similar to the Tracfone LG Ultimate 2, with several noticeable improvements.
Moto G tracfone byop
Moto G Front and Back
  • Latest Android OS - Currently 4.4.4
  • 4.5" IPS Touchscreen (720x1280)
  • 5 MP Rear Camera, 1.3 MP Front Camera
  • Quad-Core 1.2 Ghz Processor
  • Adreno 305 Graphics
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 GB Internal Memory
  • Micro USB and 3.5mm headphone slots
  • GPS
  • FM Radio
  • Battery Talk time 24 hours
  • See even more specs at GSMArena.

A couple of key features that put the Moto G ahead of any of Tracfone's current phones are the processor, Internal Memory, Battery Life, Operating System, and Touchscreen.

The processor is a powerful quad-core 1.2 Ghz Cortex A7, a multitasking champ that runs well with the 1 GB of RAM. Internal Memory is 8 GB (some have 16) which is 4 GB more than current Tracfone devices, and is enough space to load all the apps you want.

The touchscreen is beautiful, and has plenty of resolution for this kind of price. The Moto G's battery is amazing, and can easily last two full days with moderate to low use. Surprisingly, the phone also charges very quickly. The long batter life isn't due to a large battery, but to the processor and other power-saving features.

Lastly, the Moto G will be getting Android 5.0 when it comes out, which none of Tracfone's other smartphones will get (except perhaps the Moto E). If you want the latest Android OS, the Moto G has you covered.

The Camera on the Moto G is fine, but doesn't really stand out, and can't compete with high-end devices like an iPhone or Nexus 6.

Finally, the fit and form of the Moto G is nice and comforting, giving the user a feeling of sturdyand ergonomic  construction.

Well, as you probably guessed, we are pretty big fans of the Moto G because of two key points: Price and Quality. For the money, there is probably no better phone currently available (besides the 2nd gen Moto G of course). But enough about the phone, time to share exactly how to get a Moto G working with Tracfone!

How to Use the Moto G on Tracfone BYOP

Now that you are familiar with what the Moto G offers, and what the Tracfone BYOP program is, we are going to share exactly how to get the Moto G to run on Tracfone BYOP. Note, there is no guarantee that a particular Verizon Moto G will work with Tracfone, but if you have the patience and are willing to take a risk, it is possible.

Step 1 - Find a used or refurbished Verizon (or pageplus) Moto G (1st Gen) on Amazon, eBay or elsewhere. The phone needs to have been used on Verizon prepaid for at least 6 months (we have not confirmed this, but it appears to be the case).

moto g on tracfone prepaid
Verizon Moto G
Step 2 - Go to Tracfone's BYOP page and enter the ESN/IMEI/MEID and follow the steps to register it, which includes a $10 activation charge. Note, this is the step that you might have the most difficulty getting through, as phones on Tracfone BYOP seem to be required to have been used on Verizon for a certain time, but no longer be active. If your phone fails the first time, you can try calling customer service, but that can be a challenge. Best advice from users is to have patience, and keep trying.

Step 3 - Once registered, log into your Tracfone account on the Tracfone website and choose "Transfer my Number and Service from One Tracfone to Another" and follow the steps there.

Step 4 - Your Moto G should be active in a few hours, or up to 24 hours. If it doesn't become active, you may have to call customer service to sort things out.

And now you have a Moto G active on Tracfone BYOP! This step by step guide was originally provided by an anonymous Tracfone user for de9w2dsl to share here. Thanks anonymous user!

Update on:November 2, 2014 at 3:38 PM My Moto G came today and I am on Tracfone, no problems and did it on-line too. This is a fantastic phone clear picture loud sound and it is like greased lightning. $9.99 for BYOP transfer and if you have an account just pick transfer you number to new phone. Look for Moto G refurbished and Verizon and Page Plus, clean ESN and right now going for less than $70.00 on Amazon. What a buy! Now it is learn how to operate this baby!
From Anonymous on Oct 18th, 2014:
Unlocked post paid verizon Moto G worked no problem. I am guessing this phone was flashed by ebay seller. It was advertised as being good for "PagePlus" also
From Anonymous on Oct 12th, 2014:
so all statements are not true to all extent i bought a new droid x2 "mb870"? no contract phone witch according to this post wont work anyway my steps to make it work step one set up with tracfone this alone wont work it will get activated to your account but the phone will not go through the activation to get that to work i had to call the (Verizon prepaid activation number "number" when i did this i received my telephone number (to let you know at this point i was completely pissed with tracfone and was just going to go to Verizon) when i got my number i thought at first it was a Verizon# so i went to the verizon site and entered the number but it said it wasn't a verizon number so i called back the tracfone support they said this is a tracfone number my best guess is that when i called the verizon act number it sent the unlock code well after a few min with tracfone the phone works.
The last comment, while a little hard to understand, seems to indicate that it may be possible, in a roundabout way, to activate new Verizon phones with Tracfone if you follow the right steps.

We hope this information, and the comments and input provided by anonymous users, will help you be able to activate a Moto G on Tracfone, if you so desire. Be sure to let us know how it goes, by leaving a comment below.

Be sure to visit our Tracfone BYOP page where there is lots of general information, and a lot of user comments. Also visit our Cell Phone Reviews page if you are looking for a new phone, but may want an easier route than the BYOP program.

We share Tracfone Promo Codes each month, but these codes don't work on Android phones.

If you're curious about how minutes work with smartphones, read our guide, How Minutes Work on Tracfone Android Phones. : D

Thanks for visiting! We will continue to update this as information becomes available. Keep up to date with us by following on Facebook!

Additionally, you can find a new Verizon Moto G on and use promo code 4397819 to get it for $48. But you may have to use it on Verizon prepaid for a few months before it will work on Tracfone. Thanks C. P. for the tip!

OSX 10.10, Yosemite.

Wow, Apple keeps inching OS X and iOS closer and closer together, and they keep incrementally making OS X (and iOS) better as well.  Where Microsoft failed at completely revamping Windows (8), Apple has hit a home-run with OS X 10.10 (Yosemite).  Now don't get to frightened, though the look of Yosemite is slightly different than Mavericks (it's a flatter look and feel, akin to iOS 8), the emphasizes translucency, more streamlined dock and toolbars, as well as smarter controls.

Yosemite brings improvements to most of the major Apple Apps.  From a new streamlined Safari toolbar and "Favorites" view, to numerous upgrades to the Mail app.  The Messages app now has the ability to send SMS messages (a first), which will allow you to keep track of all your messages from you iPhone (not just iMessages).

Apple is touting what they call "Continuity" as one of Yosemite's major breakthrough features.  The Handoff feature of Continuity allows you to begin something on one device and pick it up and complete it on another.  Another awesome feature of Continuity is the ability to answer phone calls on your Mac!  That's right, you can answer a call made to your iPhone right on your Mac.  All you need to do is make sure your Mac and iPhone are signed into the same iCloud account.  Then your Mac is able to grab the call (through iCloud).  Now your iPhone doesn't have to be tied to your hip, or glued to your hand...:).

Spotlight has been improved.  For starters, it looks and acts much more like a search engine now.  When you click the Magnifying glass icon (top right of your Mac), Spotlight Search now appears like this.  You get a search window in the middle of your Mac, start searching for something and the window expands nicely to show items that match your search.

The Mail App has some great new features.  Along with a cleaner design, the mail app now supports Markup, which allows users to annotate attachments directly from Mail, without having to open any other apps.  

Another fantastic new feature in Yosemite is iCloud drive.  Apple finally has successfully joined Google, Dropbox and other cloud vendors, vying to be your cloud drive of choice.  With iCloud drive Apple has a winner on its hands.  

Now you can easily move files to and from iCloud drive using Finder.  See below:

iCloud drive can also be accessed from (as well as your iOS device running iOS 8).  I have found it very easy to use, and love it's direct integration with Finder.

Those are just some of the awesome new features to come in Yosemite.  I will post additional info on Yosemite in the coming weeks.  

I'd love to hear your thoughts, what you like, even dislike.  I highly recommend downloading if you haven't, it doesn't take long, and is well worth it!

Until next time, best to you and your devices!

Alcatel Onetouch ICON Pop - Available for Tracfone

The Alcatel Onetouch ICON Pop (A564C) Released for Tracfone

We are sharing details and specs below about the Alcatel A564C touchscreen smartphone newly released for use with Tracfone Wireless. de9w2dsl will continue to update this post as more information is available.

tracfone a564c alcatel onetouch icon pop
Tracfone Alcatel onetouch Icon Pop
See links at the end of the post for buying options from Amazon and eBay!

The Alcatel Onetouch ICON Pop has a really long name, and also a really large screen, the largest for a Tracfone device yet, at 5". This phone was released by Tracfone rather quickly, along with the LG Ultimate 2.

Tracfone is moving a little faster at adding new Android smartphones to their lineup that already includes several other options. But until now they were lacking a smartphone with a larger screen size, and the Alcatel Onetouch (and LG Ultimate 2) appears to fill that void.

The previous screen size options were the LG Optimus Fuel with a 3.5" touchscreen, and the LG Optimus Dynamic II at 3.8", among others.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace Style, with a 4" touchscreen, and the Moto E, with 4.3" touchscreen, are both expected to be released in the near future, but have been overtaken before even being released. The LG Ultimate 2, which was released at the same time as the Icon Pop, has a 4.5" screen, and shares many similar features and specs.

In case you're wondering (like we were), here is the breakdown of why the name is so long. Alcatel is the company name, Onetouch is the name of the line of phones, and Icon Pop ( or sometimes POP Icon) is the name of this phone. There are a few other Alcatel Onetouch phones, like the Pop Mega, and Pop Star, but Tracfone isn't adding them to their selection. Tracfone then classifies this as the A564C, with 'C' denoting that it uses CDMA technology.

Let's look at what you can expect from the Alcatel Icon Pop.

What to Expect from the Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop on Tracfone

First off, the Icon Pop will be used on Verizon CDMA 3G service through Tracfone prepaid. This is the same as Tracfone's other Smartphone offerings at this time.

It will have Triple Minutes for Life, and minutes will be separated into Talk, Text and Data. For more info on this, read our post, How Minutes Work on Tracfone Android Phones.

The 5" touchscreen is obviously the most noticeable feature on the Alcatel A564C, but there are several other features that are very exciting for Tracfone users who are looking for an upgrade on their current phones.

Time to take a closer look at the Icon Pop features and specs.

Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop Features and Specs

We will cover the main features for the A564C, followed by the technical specifications below.
  • Android 4.4
  • 3G on Verizon networks
  • WiFi
  • 5MP Rear Camera
  • 0.3MP Front Camera
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • Large Screen Icons
  • Hearing Aid Compatible, Hands free Speaker
  • MP3 Player, FM Radio
  • Triple Minutes for Life
  • Flashlight
  • Caller ID, Call Waiting, Voicemail, etc.
  • Voice Dialing
  • Access to over 1 Million apps via Google Play
Alcatel A564C Icon Pop Specs:
  • Size: 5.55" x 2.84" x 0.39"
  • 5" touschreen (854 x 480)
  • 1.2 Ghz Quad-core processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 4 GB Internal Memory(~2GB available), Up to 32 GB Micro SD card Compatible
  • Weight: 5.2 Ounces
  • 2000 mAh Battery with 9.5 hours talk time, 20 days standby (2.5 hrs to fully charge)
alcatel onetouch icon pop tracfone
Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop and 5" screen
A number of the features and specs listed above for the Alcatel Ontouch Icon Pop are improvements over Tracfone's older smartphones, and similar to the Moto E and LG Ultimate 2. Let's take a closer look.

One of the big features is the processor and RAM on the Icon pop. With a quad core and 1 GB, it should be able to keep up with your needs. The LG Ultimate 2 and Moto E each have 1 GB of RAM and 1.2 Ghz processors, but they are only dual core. Other Android phones like the ZTE Valet and LG Optimus Dyamic II are single core with 512 MB RAM.

Another big feature on the Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop is the camera. It has a 5MP rear camera plus a 0.3MP front camera. And after looking through sources, it appears to have autofocus.

The Ultimate 2 also has a 5MP camera with autofocus, and 1.3MP front camera. But the Moto E only has a 5MP rear camera and no autofocus.

Lastly, the 5" screen is a nice feature, and a bit bigger than the other smartphones from Tracfone at this time as we mentioned above. Some sources indicate that it has a resolution of 854 x 480 while we found others saying 960 x 540. 

Our Thoughts on the Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop

This phone brings some great new features to the table with a 5" screen and quad core processor. While this phone is still at the low end of the smartphone market, it is ahead of many of Tracfone's other devices.

Each new phone that Tracfone releases pushes the list of features further and further into what other carriers are using. Tracfone is still behind the curve, but they are trying to catch up. It is unlikely they will ever sell top of the line phones with their prepaid service, but at least users can get some newer tech.

The Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop is a a great looking phone with a nice large screen, but is it better than the Moto E and LG Ultimate 2? Spec-wise, it does have more processing cores, and a larger screen, but each user must choose what is important to themselves when selecting a phone. Not everyone, for example, wants a 5" screen.

At $150 from the Tracfone website, the Alcatel Icon Pop is the most expensive Tracfone yet. We  have just found the Alcatel on Amazon, as well as eBay with several attractive minutes bundles, and at a slightly discounted price:

Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop available on Amazozn and eBay with Minutes options:

Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop on Amazon for $139 (plus $5 shipping)

Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop on eBay for $139

Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop with 600 Minutes on eBay for $169

These are some pretty decent deals if you're looking to buy the phone along with minutes. Last check the Alcatel was in and out of stock on Tracfone's site. So if you are looking for this phone, you might want to move fast!

We will also be doing a full review of the Alcatel smartphone in the near future.

The Alcatel will be great for those looking for a big phone, and looking to impress with a large screen. Although these days, 6" screens or bigger seems to be necessary.

Let us know what you're thinking about this phone, and if you have any questions about it.
