Thought not, because if you had you'd know that it doesn't become "burning hot" in daily use. But that story is so well established in the blogs that it's immune to evidence now.
Also the camera problems were early software, and it works pretty well now.
Not a surprise, they really should step their lazy game up after the M8 and M9's fiasco. You just simply can't sell flagships which have a really bad camera compared to rivals or a bad chipset which causes a aluminum phone to be burning hot in daily use. My last HTC was the M7, but there has been 0 interesting newer HTC models after it.
Samsung and LG are lucky that they sell all of kind of stuff and products, otherwise they will be in the same boat

Especially since it are these kind of users that have great influence on other people with less interest in tech (but perhaps a bigger wallet). They're all fools. As always they tackle their problems the same way by ditching factories and people. Yet they expect those same people to keep buying their products.
Only top end models can not be profitable. World has changed. Low and mid range devices with good performance thats what people are expecting. These OEMs ignore this fact. They only want to release top end model with higher cost. It wil not work.
Hahaha HTC fixes the profit by selling their manufacturing plants and cutting jobs but they don't fix their phone mainly the camera department and heating issues obviously. I mean how ridiculous is this they can't even fix a camera in their smartphone in three years in a row. Lower cost smartphones performs better than their flagship devices in camera department of course.
Learn from Motorola, Give what users want not what you want, and that fixes everything.
No bright future for HTC with such a bizzare pricing policy. Insanely high and unjustified prices for their phones.
Come on, What were you expecting sleeping the whole year then waking up 10 days before M9 release to add a 13mp camera and a failure sd810. I'm sure they saved a lot on R&D this year.
Eplak, 19 Aug 2015Wow. A 147 square meter manufacturing plant. I bet it manufactures 10 phones a month :')) Imagine how desperate they must be if such (The money from) a small factory matters to them.
I'm really wondering - how they make decisions regarding the specifications and design of their phones. Like - lack of hardware buttons, poor quality screens, etc (i'm talking general here, not referring to this particular model).
HTC used to do stunning, desirable devices, but in the last 5 years none of their products resonated. Do they really know what their customers want?
i really think there must be competition, but it seems they'd rather produce something they think will do, and then go bankrupt, without paying attention to customers till the very end, despite everything.

HTC should spend 10 minutes every day on this forum and maybe take on some good advise and maybe recover their falling business.
erin, 19 Aug 2015that's what you got when ignoring customer voice.. Let's hope Samsung will follow.
We really need project Ara, but i suspect it won't be allowed. But at least we can still buy the much cheaper chinese phones, at least they have models with big and removable batteries.
