3rd message (corrected)

the key is:
screen 4.3 - 4.7"
720 x 1080 (no higher because drains battery)
removable battery
sd card
16 or 32GB internal storage
minimum 1.5 GB ram
promise-warranty for updating android for 2 years
battery 2500mah or higher
camera 8 - 13 mp
minimum: quad core 1.3 GHz
dual sim
on-screen buttons (like motorola moto g)
no more than 300

example 1: JIAYU G5 (not basic version)
(G5 also octacore in 1-2 months)
(although no promise for android updates and no on-screen buttons) 260 (octacore 1.7 presale at etotalk)
example 2: cheaper JIAYU G4 (G5 has stainless steel frame)

"The undisclosed analyst says that the HTC One sales have been flat since its launch in late March 2013 despite the phone's awards and recognition. That may be connected to the poor financial performance that HTC has been having lately."

WHAT??? :D How about 4 Mpix camera, embedded battery and lack of card slot?! Err... and who gave them lots of awards for such poor hardware? Funny ones...

Well, they need to expand their marketing reach to make better sales. Samsung have a great sales setup in Bangladesh, but LG Mobile has no presence at all. I'd prefer to buy LG Mobiles over Samsung, but I cant get them in my country ... Bangladesh

LG could have atleast enabled removable storage on the international G2. But no. They just had to cripple the device which was meant to put them back on track.

. HTC need a better specs and Expandable storage + they need to keep updating their flagships
.LG need to stop following whatever Samsung gives and push updates as well
.Huawei makes beautiful phones but their chipset is just poor
(personal opinion)

If LG at least put the G2 with expandable storage, the sales would be much higher than it is.
Got my G2 with 16gb (only the 16gb version is avaiable in my country), put some games here, other musics there, and now I have 4gb free space :/
Choose to buy this phone becouse the price is much lower than others like Z1, Note 3 and such.
Actually I'm satisfied with the phone, its awesome, no lags or such, my only complainment is about the non xpandable memory.

Htc phones are just too expensive. Even their midrange are more expensive than others. Lg has an image problem. Same goes for Hwawei. Why buy the P6 when add some few dollars you can get a more reliable samsung phone. I am hoping sony will buck the trend but i am not thet confident. Samsung is killing them all.

This is kind of surprising since G2 is selling pretty well where I live. No Google Play also helps since 16GB versions of both G2 and N5 cost the same (400). G2 with 32GB of memory is only 15 more and 32Gb version of N5 is nowhere to be seen. HTC needs to get their act (and pricing) together since One costs more than any other flagship other than Note 3, Lumia 1520 and iPhones, and nobody will pay that much for last year's phone.

Example of bad updating for LG. This was posted back in 2011 and it continues with people still holding on to the promise LG made. This was for multiple handsets not just one.­15436
