They dug their own grave, trying to sell the cloud, then the Beats fiasco, losing hundreds of millions in that, and quite a few other blunders.

These days, the competition is so tough. If you can't be good enough, then you are out. Htc phones are also damn expensive. They should have products that can sell in emerging economies. I am not surprised as to why samsung is doing so well in all markets.

Come on, HTC! The way HTC price the phones are like Apple, do u know? In Cambodia, HTC One cost around 830$ USD, but Samsung Galaxy cost 685$ and Sony Xperia Z around 540$. If HTC price their phones right, I'll support them.

They should give us lower prices. Besides,whats a 4mp camera doing in a flagship device? Least should have been 8mp.

A microSD slot and a removeable battery would have been enough for me to consider them.

I think HTC should stop being stubborn and make Android phones. Only Android can save HTC.

Oh. Wait.

They failed to bring their latest high-end products like HTC One 64GB in stores on time, of course they will suffer.

HTC need to put 100% efforts on flagship!
Flagship is the one make the most profit!
Next time don't put 4MP camera in your flagship product.
