I really respect HTC but they need to work very hard on their advertising to balance the battle against Samsung .

it is so hard to understand that iphone users do not want big smartphones? are you all stupid? iphone 5 is the most powerful and the most beautiful device in the class of 4 inch and stands up even to all 4.3 inch devices. after that dimension it is useless to talk because that devices have MORE SPACE TO PUT PIECES INSIDE!!! SIMPLE LOGIC !!! I repair mobiles and iphones are the most difficult to disassembly, they are made like watches,EVERY MICRON IS USED. you can't put a v12 motor on a vw golf, it is not enough space

Why am I doubting this? BB10 demand was also said big and it turned out to be a faux. I very much doubt "several hundred thousand" preorders, in any case, if it'll take HTC several months to produce that many, there is no point really, because many will just cancel the order and go for the S4.

> In reply to [deleted post]People buy iPhone because of the iOS and ecosystem, its pointless from you to talk about sony and s4 and all the great android phones, they still have android, not iOS.

Apple users buy ecosystem, Apple users could buy htc one easily if it runs iOS.

Actually first android phone which i could buy is this HTC one, its very impressive and very good looking phone. But it still doesnt run iOS, so its no go.

But i hope HTC one going to sell a lot because it deserve to be hit.

but yep you should understand that its not about the phone itself, it hasnt been in many years.
