And for those who want to argue about how good the ultra pixel camera is, compare it's picture to the phone a year older "ONE X" then justify to me why is the new "Ultra pixel" picture is not as good as that of the "One X". I love my ONE X, and I was waiting for the HTC One, but too bad I was so disappointed with it's camera

That's for dropping the ball with their "Ultra Pixel" camera! What a disappointment that camera was

I think the HTC One will lead to their demise. They must introduce another phone and soon or they risk losing whatever market share they currently have.

HTC has sturdy built, good design, but lack of supports (i.e. s/w updates). HTC has too many variants, and flagships tend to down from the throne jst too early.

Practically HTC is better than jst good, but disappointing their own customers.

No wonder HTC is getting worse. His teams are excellent, but do not have micro SD memory expansion and the battery is not user replaceable. Sony already is understanding and is doing very well. Also much complication in the names of their teams (all are X) away some potential customers. Samsung knows that it MUST include in their teams external memory slot, user-replaceable battery and the latest technology at the time of the launch of new mobile phone (without holding any technological advancement "next flagship" as did Sony and continues by Nokia) So Samsung is king. I have a Galaxy S3 and love it, but it's time to change it. I tried a Galaxy S4 and did not convince me. My sights are set on Sony Xperia Z although it has sealed battery is waterproof! Hopefully hasten the Xperia UL, easy to become the master of all his camera smartphone infinitely superior in low and medium lighting ANY Samsung. The Nokia Lumia 1020 (or 909) is very interesting and the camera is my desire, but is only moderately good at sales does not include external memory slot and user-replaceable battery (maybe include it to the "next flagship Nokia? ") When will OEMs understand? REPLACEABLE BATTERY AND EXTERNAL MEMORY SLOT!

I'm biggest HTC Fan.And I wanted to say that HTC is the best designable mobile brand but it also has some weakness.The weakness is that It does not think well when release a flagship of its year.Just look at the HTC One "Best in Class 2013".I'm impressed with its features like Ultra pixels,Boomtech sound,Zoe,Screen,Performance and design.The Neglibility of HTC in releasing the flagship is that it do not support Expandable storage,User interface of HTC One,One X,One S,etc.,waterproof technology,etc., and a battery life.Due to this problems the HTC Lacks behind in every year.I know that it is well defined brand but do not give much power to its flagship.The Apple is not better than the HTC but of popularity of people it rises.Just compare the iPhone 5 with HTC Desire S,Desire V,Desire X and Desire 600.The HTC's are have better function and apps better than iPhone 5.The HTC Desires has same weight of iPhone 5 but the HTC's do not have popularity due to low battery life.People like iPhones more better but I like HTC more better.The HTC should design the next flagship like HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE which is also competitor of iPhone 5 and I compared them and the Droid Incredible is better.My Father has iPhone 5 which I didn't find any useful function in it,It is just standard but cool in looks.By using the weakness of HTC like user interface should be so cool in which a person shocked to see the home screen and Application menu.HTC can be at the top of S4,iPhone 5S,etc.So,I want HTC to release a another flagship in next or this year which do not leave any MicroSD Card Slot,Water proof,Cool User interface not like the iPhones or Samsung,Long battery life, superior design,Ultrapixels of HTC One,Boomtech sound,Zoes.By this functions the HTC could be in the top of the eyes of peoples.Love you HTC.I hope you follow this instructions.Thank you.

HTC was my favorite brand until 2011 . Good quality and power and creativity were very attractive for me . I tried 2 handset HTC Touch HD and Desire . the second was much better than previous . I waited anxiously for HTC Sensation for a long time . But death grip problem , poor battery life and poor support disappointed me . Its rivals perform much better . Unfortunately HTCS didn't want to listen to its customers. But I believe that HTC really has the ability to make a revolution and take back its dominant situation . I expect better camera with night vision , better battery , Smart physical Home button, better screen , better support and stronger connectivity hardware ( network GPS GPRS WiFi and so on ) in near future which are all available . Good Luck dear HTC .

The problem with HTC is the lack of marketing strategies and the price of their devices are too expensive. Like the old HTC One X/X+ are still expensive here in my country so people tend to get Samsung devices instead.

HTC always perform better under windows platform. Last year HTC came up with Windows Phone and did well. This year no Windows Phone and profit went down. So I think HTC should give more concentration to WP. Whatsoever I hope HTC will turn around strongly next year with its innovative WP smart phones.

Well the main reason for this failure is not the ultra pixel nor the price! But their customer support! You see HTC has not updated their old 2011 phones yet, left customers! That's why people got disappointed! See Samsung are doing muchbetter in this ssection! So you see the results! I do agree with advertisement that htc lacks!
