High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), also known as H.265, promises twice the compression possible with Blu-ray’s best video compression methods. But how does it work, and is it enough to get us better-looking 4K content?
As HTC's smartphone line sputtered -- and the Beats addition did little to spur sales -- it became clear that both companies needed out.
Few budget speakers look or sound this good, says the Audiophiliac.
The H.265 video standard, aka HEVC or MPEG-5, squeezes more pixels over a network connection to support new high-resolution 4K TVs. Broadcom's chip supports both and is due to arrive in volume next year.
The next-gen video compression technology shrinks video by 40 to 45 percent compared to today's prevailing H.264. But encoding H.265 video takes a long time right now.
The Chinese company has reported a 29 per cent quarterly profit jump as it increases it share of the PC market.
The HTC Desire 610 may be affordable, with an iPhone 5C-style plastic body, but its mediocre specs and poor screen resolution mean it's still not a good buy. For much less money you can grab the 4G Motorola Moto G, which has the same processor, Android KitKat software and a higher resolution display.

While it has its sound limitations, particularly in the bass department, the downsized version of Scosche's BoomBottle H2O is a pretty decent little wireless speaker that's travel-friendly and repels water.
With its slick metal body, the HTC One Mini 2 is among the most luxurious compact phones around. HTC, however, has given it a set of specs that put it more alongside the dirt-cheap Moto G than the One M8. This is definitely not the flagship One M8 in a more compact form. If style is of the utmost importance, it's worth checking out, but the Moto G is much better value.
Unless you need a great deal on earbuds, there’s no reason to buy the HTC One M8 Harman Kardon Edition.
