I think HTC one is much better than the IPHONE 5, whether its air gesture function or screen resolution, I like it very much, but I recently saw a mobile phone which is similar with HTC one no matter style and performance, called OrientPhone S6, it can play 3 d games, antutu test can reach 16000 scores.

Don't ever think that Naxes saved LG's ass and will save HTC if they are get into Nexus. Most of the Nexus is sold inside the US and profit margin is very less. Selling a single HTC one is equal to selling 3 Nexus. Just see the outside world, No one like Nexus

I wish Google again collaborated with HTC to make the next Nexus phone. HTC has all it takes a non expandable memory and a built in battery just a perfect Nexus.

Amazon should just make their own os, it's not like they're using the play store, or any other of the benefits of android.

HTC is dying... Experiments are not innovation...
if you cant innovate you have to get hold of the masters...
Microsoft can save HTC...

While I have sworn off the Kindle after the 2nd gen, I would hope that they relax there grip on and lock down on the UI of Android and then I would THINK about getting one. I am not interested in there overlay and lock down anymore and am not planning on purchasing anymore Kindles or there version of Android any more.

HTC can't do marketing which is why they were successful before using this strategy.

Good example is the HTC Butterfly & Butterfly-S. HTC One got all the focus and marketing, however the Butterfly (hate the name) is a great phone with a completely different look from the ONE. The Butterfly has vibrant blue and red backs, is a more curved back compared to the HTC ONE. From a style perspective, these two phones SHOULD HAVE been marketed very differently. Instead, HTC priced the Butterfly in the premium market and then did almost no promotion of the phone. It's encouraging that HTC is not ready to give up on the Butterfly, as the Butterfly 2 is now in the works.
