Now this should be a good example to all other OEMs to *Listen to what customers demand*
OEMs doesn't decide what's in and out, what's in demand and what's not and "what's good for business" :D but the customers do!
Hopefully, the HTC One Max will a removable battery, SD card slot and maybe a not so overpriced price tag. Now, all HTC needs to do is, drop that 4 MP camera and go for 13 or 20 MP cameras. That's it if HTC wants market share.
Will only get worse if they keep being insensitive to what the people really want! We want Phablets, Not butterflies (ugly ones at that). The fact is that the only reason I'm reading this is because of the Max coming. We want size, not a million phones looking the same and worse; less than 5 inches!!
Joey, 05 Oct 2013HTC make good products, though they probably make too many products instead of just concentrat... moreAgreed! Probably they've should learn from SAMSUNG focusing on their GALAXY line-ups and please don't overprice.
great strategy HTC, no sdcard,no removable battery, low mp camera, small screen big bezel.
aluminum and design only cant save you on this day.

That's the biggest bs.
Why people keen to condemn HTC while other OEM got away with it..?
Look, Sgs4 first announces with S600, but be4 long they launched S800 version. Likewise Sony XZ, then Z1. LG does the same this year.
While HTC? They stuck with HTC One lame 4uP camera.
And you still accuse them? Unbelievable.
htc blew their name years ago, with the windows mobile phones -> incredible sucky phones !!
I fill sorry for HTC... HTC one is really an alrounder beauty except removable battery and micro sd card... perhaps way better than Iiphone 5s and can compete with S4. Don't give up HTC your prosperous days will ahead may be. By the way iam Note 1 user

Funny, you guys saying that HTC fall is because of Android, but insist on Nokia using Android for their devices.
Even HTC adopts Android but very unfortunately that HTC lacks of innovation+differentiation and selling overpriced devices and try to be Apple.
HTC make good products, though they probably make too many products instead of just concentrating on their main devices with updates and support etc..
Android was launched exactly five years ago, on September 23, 2008. At the time, the 1.0 version of the system was launched, as the name Astro, because at that time the idea was to use the name of famous Google bots. The first smartphone launched with support for Android 1.0 was the HTC Dream (also called T-Mobile G1) Android full five years, htc was always by his side
HTC did not give up, and hopefully investing money from the sale of 25% of Beats Audio, I was very sad for breach of exclusive beats, better days shall come!
1) no microSD slot in top models
2) battery non-removable in top models
3) Sense became bloat
