Unaudited Q1 results from HTC show 98% decline in net profit - read the full textHTC included some preliminary Q1 results in its monthly financial report and the numbers aren’t looking good. After a poor performance in the second half of last year, HTC was hoping the One will help it bounce back up, but difficulties in manufacturing meant that the company had to push back the...


Sort by:

HTC formerly = quietly brilliant.
HTC now = quietly beaten.
HTC in the future = ..?????
BTW the One is beautifully design.
Good luck HTC because your initial letters stands for How To Compete.

Then it's not an excuse!
it's just people don't like HTC brand..that's all.
They can make a gold phone and won't be able to sell it!

- Poor sound quality (beats audio sucks big time!)
- Poor camera (never had a good camera,so nothing new)
- Laggy and heavy sense UI ( sucks!)
- Slow software updates
- Very bad after sale service
- Bad battery
- No removable battery = can't have a spare one
- No micro SD card slot (dead phone = lost data!)
- Locked bootloaders (unlockable but bye warranty!)
- Bad signal

How can they have profits when HTC one is just an iphone 5 wannabe? by the way they are paying apple for every phone sold!!!

I know that cases exist..but why buy an aluminium "pemium" (like some say!).and wrap it in a plastic case?

Thet wont get any penny from Android because they haven't understood what people are looking for.
The real competition is between Samsung and Apple and it will be the same for a long time.

Others are just followers and make phones to loose money.

I wonder how don't they bankrupt, surprisingly they become the official sponsor of UEFA Champions League. However HTC One still available in three countries. Lets hope positively in second quarter.

You don't know anything about the technology HTC is using behind the 4MP camera, it is Ultrapixels...
The pixels are bigger and it gives almost same quality pics as 12MP cameras...

Haha.. what a poor result...

Before even talking HTC one, where's the sale of htc butterfly that many htc fans shout & raving about huge sales?

Could it be just another faking sales numbers again? That's just typical Taiwanese company always lie about the sales numbers.

HTC stands for "High Tech Computer Corporation".

You're absolutely right,the name of HTC should be changed because it does not reflect the product they build!

What about Hexctor Technologies Corp?

They should start releasing a refreshed version of htc one & htc 1st by may or june then abandon the previous version, this will make them more profits and sell more phones.

I'm going to pre-order the HTC One and looking around, apparently a lot of other people are interested in it as well. Let's hope that it'll help with their profits! If not, I'll still be owning a very slick device =)
