HTC posts loss in Q3, predicts declining revenue in Q4 - read the full textHTC's unaudited report for the third quarter of this year pointed to the first quarterly loss in the company's history. The final report confirms that and doesn’t paint a rosy picture for Q4 either. The company's revenue for Q3 this year was $1.6 billion. That's a sizeable drop from the $2.4...

I really want to switch to HTC but whenever i see the price tag it turns me off. Its a bit overpriced like blackberry and apple.

The problem with HTC is 4mpx camera in their ONE line. If they only had 13-16mpx camera lens installed, no one would buy Samsung galaxy products. They made a big mistake putting a 4mpx camera in their phones. It is nothing wrong with the camera, but costumers simply don't like when they read 4mpx instead of 16 for example.
4mpx really sounds outdated.

The only main reason is Price.. No doubt htc devices are perfect but their prices are too high as compared others..
Must be focused this one..

They have to restructure their marketing dept. We cannot afford their prices while competitors are offering very competitive price.

Boasting about the One Max? Really! It is the same price as the Note 3, has no stylus and an older processor and less RAM. Not to mention the battery cannot be swapped either. HTC need to wake up or they will be joining Blackberry in the dead loss zone soon too.

Those Robert Downey Jr commercials were terrible. People already knew HTC existed. What they needed to know is why they should choose HTC over everyone else. They failed in that respect.

HTC will be no more in less than two years time, if that, BB anyone. As a corporation if you keep bleeding money, eventually you will have to shut the doors, as no creditor is going to want to touch you, and without credit, you have no business.

Its no surprise. Their saviour phone should really have been the htc one. But many people didnt know much about the one before its release due to its p*ss poor marketing strategy. And when 40 million s3 owners alone were waiting for the s4 u really need to slow down their marketi g campaign for it to be a hit. There was also design issues with the phone, i dont care what people say but at the minute a micro sd card and a removable battery are a very handy addition as cloud storage is not available everywhere. Some data plans are not great and signal issues plague connections, and phones sometimes freeze and a simple battery pull is all it takes
