Valentine’s Day is around the corner, which can signal good or bad things for your love life. Whichever camp you might find yourself in, why not add to the love in the air with HTC’s Seven Days of Sappiness?

The week-long promotion centers around three HTC smartphones: the One M9, One A9, and HTC 10. The One M9 receives the deepest discount, as the phone goes from its original $650 price tag to $400. The phone is a bit long in the tooth, seeing how it was HTC’s 2015 flagship, but its octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and 20-megapixel camera help it remain relevant.

Meanwhile, the One A9 drops from $500 to $300 and is available in Carbon Gray, Deep Garnet, Opal Silver, and Topaz Gold. As is the case with the One M9, the One A9 is a bit old at this point, given its release in the latter half of 2015, but its discounted price helps it compete nicely with the likes of the Moto G4 Plus and Honor 6X. It also helps that the phone was recently updated to Android 7.0 Nougat, something neither of the two aforementioned phones can say just yet. The One A9 can be purchased unlocked or with support for a specific carrier, though the price remains the same.

Finally, the HTC 10 gets knocked down from $700 to $550 and is available in black, silver, gold, and red. The price remains the same regardless of whether you buy the phone unlocked or with a specific carrier in mind. The discounted helps position the HTC 10 nicely against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and iPhone 7, and we particularly liked its clean software and solid audio capabilities.

Phones are not the only discounted products as all accessories are 50 percent off. HTC specifically calls out the JBL Reflect Aware USB Type-C earphones, which now cost $100 — half the regular price.

All three phones include free shipping, HTC’s Uh-Oh Protection, and either a travel water mug or notepad as a small gift. Some lucky folks will also get free power charges and phones with their orders. The Seven Days of Sappiness promotion lasts through Friday, February 17

Google just redesigned one of its biggest apps, and it’s bad
Google Chat app on the Play Store.

Google Chat — Google's business-oriented messaging platform that is similar to Slack and Microsoft Teams — just got a big update for its Android and iOS apps. The update dramatically changes how you navigate the app and, uh, well, it sure is something.

Google Chat's mobile app used to be broken up into two pages: Chat (direct messages between you and other users) and Spaces (larger chat rooms for multiple people). As with most apps, you switched between these with a navigation bar at the bottom of your screen.

The Pixel Watch 2 just got a feature it should have launched with
The Google Pixel Watch 2 resting on a stone fireplace.

Google has heard everyone’s demands and has given in to a highly requested feature that should have already been a thing with the Google Pixel Watch 2: a fully charged notification. Yes, that’s right — you’ll now get a notification on your Android phone when your Pixel Watch 2 is fully charged. Hallelujah!

This new feature should be available starting today via the Pixel Watch app on version Google did not formally announce this feature, so it seems to be rolled out quietly (and was first spotted by Android Authority).

There’s only one reason I’m still using an iPhone in 2023
A green iPhone 15 lock screen.

It's not an understatement to say I am an Android smartphone fan, as an Android phone has been my faithful companion ever since I started using the HTC Desire in 2010. I've bounced from phone to phone in the 13 years since, and I've experienced good and bad phones alike. But in all that time, I've never spent much time with an Apple iPhone. I'm obviously not unfamiliar with iPhones, having used them during my time as a tech writer grabbing screenshots, downloading apps, and testing games — but never having used one as my primary smartphone is something of a blind spot.

The Apple iPhone 15 is a good reason to end that. After all, if I'm going to use an iPhone, it might as well be Apple's latest. Two weeks after booting it up and transferring my data to it, it's been ... a journey. While I can see the iPhone 15 is an excellent smartphone, too many of iOS's idiosyncracies rub me the wrong way. However, there's one feature I've grown to really love, and I'm going to struggle to live without it.
The iPhone 15 is a mixed bag
