What else can you expect when you stop giving support to your models in less than a year! They really need to think hard and not drive customers away to other manufacturers. Very disappointing from them.

What would expect? they introduce a product and it takes over two months to hit the market. Any sound business would not operate in such a manner. HTC was once the darling of mobile phone users but today its dying slowly. The guys in taiwan should revisit the way they operate.Probably they should first clean up before they start flooding the market with illusional phones (HTC One)and illusional updates that take months to reach handset owners

For several years have they launched phones without card slots and for the same time lost markets and profits.

Their biggest success where the Desire line of phones which had both replaceable batteries and a card slots.

I do not even bother checking out the HTC lines of phones anymore when needing a new phone, you know that they don¨t come with a card slot.

HTC seems to want to be a looser.

best phone you can buy, fact, best looking phone there ever has been fact. I find it such a shame that HTC aren't doing as well, because lets be honest, Android would never have been where it is today without them, we owe HTC a lot.

The hate i see on these posts are ridiculous, sammy, iphone or even android in general has a lot to thank HTC for, remember that next time you lot decide to slag them off.

HTC One X you can easily replace the battery of HTC One X + and then with 1800ah we 2100mAh battery.
The question of a bit of manual skills and desire. As for the connector slot on my smartphone is not. It is not need, because my is 32 Gb. Everyone buys according to their own needs. as long May Aple iPhone. There's no crying and did not complain. Everyone happy and praised to the skies. Only here, a group of malcontents and weeping women.

So full frame. and what size are the pickups on your smartphone? even the 13 megapixel. Already I say 4.8 - 5.3 mm so what quality will be a photo from your smart phone which is supposedly 13 Megapixel camera with transmitter seven times smaller thus quality reproduction of the ... and what is the size of the file after saving this photo? Because the poor quality already, for example, digital SLR Nikon D90 12.4 megapixels. image has a size of 9-11 MB.

They should consider going back to becoming OEM for other brands.

Consider creating a candy bar style phone from durable materials under a different brand name.

Lastly, wean themselves away from Android.

iOS have no need for sdcard slot because it does not fit its working paradigm. Its app centric (sandbox), having a removal card will only add confusion and errors once people exceed its internal storage.

Android have a neeed for sdcard slot because:
1. Its internal storage is generally lower, as retailers tends to buy the cheaper versions to avoid loss and increase profit. So the sd card slot compliments it.
2. Android make use of PC paradigms, all application can make use of the same central source of data, making the swapping of cards easy and error free.

HTC going the path of apple will only hurt themselves.. they should play to the strength of android.

After returning 2 HTC ONE back with manufacturing problems I can expect what other people suffer too.
No wonder the decrease till they know how to manufacture and expensive piece to People.
