N900 had quite good specs for a 2009 phone, and it had the best OS even by todays standards, it was truly a brick but it was an awesome brick. After that Nokia didnt keep up with modern standards, the N9 should have had a dual core cpu and a tested and proven OS (Maemo)

By the way, Samsung will double its lead on number 2 simply by Nokias continued downfall alone. Nokia is losing too much market also in lower end feature phones, and chinese budget android phones is gonna eat more into Asha sales, then Firefox OS will finish the job (unless Nokia is allowed by mommy Microsoft to make Firefox mobiles, that could be nice)

With One X havi ng so much in common with the old original Desire, its obvious HTC tried to milk on its old success with that model, and it was a bad idea. Htc did right in leaving that design behind when they designed the One, FINALLY they moved to the next level.

As for Sgs4, the design isnt nearly that old, but pretty is not the word also. Looks better than iphone anyway, there you can start talking about beating a dead horse, what looked great some years ago is now hopelessly outdated. Its like Volvo would bring back the 240, which also had, and still have to some degree, its faithful followers.

Samesung should thank Nokia for not joining that Android bandwagon. Imagine nokia hardware + AndroidOS! Woot Woot!!

And BTW sgs4 is really a beast, On paper.

For me bigger screen in same body with better battery would be more important than your HTC can do something in 0.001 sec faster than S4.

And i'm not Samsung fan :) I have iPhone.

Do you know why HTC are changing design all the time? Because they are not good at sales and can't find the right design what people would buy. If they will find it, then next phones will be similar.
You never will be good at business if you gonna think like you think. Why do you think apple is not changing design and still are very popular?

All together its coming with everything where it'sgonna sell well.
