should focus on screen size.. all good mid range phone had size 5.5+ .. which is not easy to carry size
If low ranking HTC entry level phones would price below World No.3 Xiomi/Lenovo, then people will be interested, which they should as all of them belong & come from China.
Maybe HTC will make compact phone like Sony Z1/3c ? Very good performance, v.good removable battery, very good camera with Xenon flash and camera key. But not with glass like Sony, better case - thickness can be even little higher, radio, wifi. Compact means 4.2 - 4.5 + easy to change OS.
Entry level phone with Mid range price, who want to buy that ???? LOL
Hope they get the formula right,should look up to Moto G,Zenfone 5,Honor 3C and Xiaomi Redmi1s if they want to compete.Honestly I love HTC(my first smartphone is Desire)but as I am a student,I can't afford top of the line smartphoneS.
Zenfone 5 is too good of a deal,even though I want a HTC,their budget range sucks.
HTC has becoming like Sammy.
No update for old models such as HTC ONE Max.
For sure HTC will be gone very soon.

you must be kidding ! the wildfire was very good phone for his time ! this is the phone that makes me discover HTC and from there on its been htc all the time !
This is not good, HTC has proven to be a complete failure at entry level, the Wildfire was rightfully awarded as one of the worst smartphones ever made, maybe THE worst.
Entry-level = Less need to push updates
But HTC's after-sales service is already garbage to begin with so I guess people won't really notice a difference.
