The best brand i known is surely HTC....But no sd card option and inbuild battery and very very expensive price than samsung flagships makes the htc hard times in market for purchase....

if HTC wants to take the market share as equal as samsung,, they should follow these steps..

*screen size from 4.7 inch to 5 inch

*13 to 16 mp camera with good day light capturing...

* with Micro SD option...

* with 32 gb inbuild memory

* with equal price as samsung flagships and good buy back offers.

* with the latest snapdragon chipsets and 3 gb ram..

* with more than 3000 mah battery with 72 hrs standbuy..

*with more than 2 mp front camera.

* with latest android versions...

* having more promotional activities in all countries and having more availability of stocks all over the world..
* with beats audio and front stereo speakers...

if this happens htc will take over the smartphone market allover the world....

I liked the One, bought it, returned it....

Hope this one is not over 5" which is my personal limit (have a 5.5" one now, which is too big for comfortable use, IMO).

Hope the camera is improved - the current one sounds great on paper, but has issues unrelated to the pixel count.

Hope they simplify the back (the design tried too hard and ended up kind of busy, even though it's still the best of all Androids).

Don't care about removable battery or SD card - people should move on with the times and battery life can be made more than sufficient with enough thought of design and optimization.

Very interested to see what it turns out to be, as well as the next Sony.

And last but not the least HTC has a bad aftersales service this is a fact!

On the positive side I like the speakers,design,ui other than that its an average phone.

I have a Note 3 and it will easily get through a day of heavy use (10+ hours screen on time).

However, if I am on a long flight or go camping for a few days and don't have access to mains power. It literally takes 1 minute to power off, insert new battery and boot back up at 100% full again.

A spare battery probably weights 30-40g and is about as big as several business cards so there is no issue with it in a pocket or even your wallet.

Unless it has 8mp or more on the camera, otherwise I don't care.

I also bring a spare battery everywhere.
Really, why wouldn't you?

I prefer spend 3-5 minutes replacing the battery, compared to let the phone charged to the wall charger for 2-2.5 hours.
And, no need for powerbank.

Well, that's me (and I know lots of people prefer this way too).

If you prefer to have integrated battery + bring powerbank everywhere, goodluck with that.
I've experienced it before with my iPhone 4 and HTC One X, and it wasn't a good experience.
