Why oh why do people worry about how nice the outside of a phone is , jesus samsungs are not cheap they may look it but they are very strong and light.
Id rather have a phone that's light in my pocket and that won't smash when dropped. I mean who surrounds a phone in glass or uses dentable metal DUH......

Samsung was found in 1938 and Sony was in 1946.

I have a question. Somebody answer me.
I've got music files with lyrics embedded in them.
When I use Iphone, the Ipod player in it shows lyrics.

But I've seen many android music players and they don't show lyrics simply just like Iphone.
I wish not another 3rd party software to show lyrics.
Is the built in music player in HTC one show lyrics just like Iphone?

Sony was stupid to launch first dudo. Samsung becomes awares of sony product a hence make better spec. You look at its proceesor at first g4 want to use 1.9gz now 1.8 a slightly better than sony lg asus htc. No wonder their antutu test always better. Cos samsung always injects more spec in them which ithink is smart move

That is the main reason why HTC is losing their clients, wrong marketing plan
Really very disappointing from HTC.

Very bad step from HTC, it obvious that the Galaxy S4 and Sony Z will come earlier to the market and people will not wait for HTC One and their bad planning.

any how this delay will give good chances to other competitors and poor HTC will be the loser.

Sony was clever enough to launch xperia z before GS4 anouncement. Htc one sell might not be as good as expected due to GS4.

htc marketing strategies and global availability are dumb, htc makes good product but other manufacturer captured his share by launching similar product in much lessor time, for ex. htc announced on 19 feb and after one month almost it has no confirmation date for india, apart from that sony z already launched in india, so atlast when consumer decide to purchase something in march wearher htc one is the best but he ll go with z or butterfly becz of its availability and ultimately htc lost its costumer, infact making a best smartphone.

It doesn't bring anything new to the market except the waterproofness for a few minutes which nobody cares about. Sony is faling deeper and deeper into sh1t for a while now and if PS4 is not gonna pull it out then nothing is. Especially not a laggy phone with nothing special going on.

It is utmost to have a product in the market almost immediately after announcement. To be ahead of your competition. Delays can mean that the product is not ready or perfect. It looks, HTC is falling behind with One.
