HTC phones are too costly in my country Nigeria. We have a very huge market here. If they can bring down the cost of their phones in Nigeria they will make a lot of money in my country.

Evil people can say whatever they want HTC is here to stay. And it will blossom like no one never thought it would. HTC brought Android, HTC brought Windows. Meaning, HTC deserves a veneration. HTC will come back to life by superseding iphone. HTC ought to be visible and well-marketed, that's it. No one complains about HTC phones unlike Samsung. People are complaining big time about Note 3.HTC for life no matter what

selling android phones would not have help nokia

the galaxy brand is more recognizable than the android brand

when people buy a new phone they either say they want a bb, lumia, iphone, galaxy never android.

just like lumia is representative of wp, galaxy is android.

despite making awesome phones they still suffer

You deserve to go down Htc. I'm going for the Z1 compact and never looking back.

HTC will be bought out by a bigger fish, just like Motorola was.

I suspect HTC phones are so expensive is because they give higher margins to re-sellers otherwise nobody would buy them. Sad case, similar to Blacberry. Good product price way too high.

> In reply to Antonio @ 2014-02-10 14:25 from nhRv - click to readYes the Desire Z was an excellent example of a flagship grade phone that was left unsupported. Very disrespectful treatment of customers, and still some people are rude enough to blame HTCs "poor marketing", thats an insult to former HTC owners who got screwed so badly, HTC is going down because people do not forget the arrogance. Tell your customers to gtfu and it will bounce back one day, HTC going bankrupt is a victory for justice.

HTC deserves to die and has failed to retain its old customers... no updates for old flagships, high prices compared to competitors...they will indeed die a slow death...R.I.P HTC... (owner if htc one x)

HTC makes the best quality handsets, all they need is better management and focus.

two years and half ago I bought a HTC Desire Z phone. It never had proper software updates, despite being one of the very few keyboard based androids. And an expensive one, too. I will never buy a htc again.

HTC phone r good , very good infact but I don't think HTC is going to make profit with such marketing & high pricing, Look at the price of HTC One Max, oooooo.... & HTC one is also high considering todays market,thewy just don't have anything in midrange & whatever they have is another crap.keep up with ur Attitude HTC

Spreadtrum Shark chipset, quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU @1.2GHz, Mali-400 GPU, 1GB of RAM
8 MP autofocus camera, 1/3.2'' sensor; LED flash

Hey HTC, dont you still get it, why you loose, pretty simple "You not the only players in this smartphone industry", this quote is self explains "why HTC loose", still did not get it, then take this hint "Provide Phones with competitive price range + better back up services [lots of service stations with smart workers]", then you might see a potential +ve talk towards HTC. "Try Now", your last chance is not far-away

This is the future with android, many many android OEMs are going to have this same future. Its very hard to make money with android anymore, there's way too many companies to share the same pie.

Htc you are very weak in software update compared to sony and samsung. Even nokia is good enough to provide updates and you also not update your older handset and older flagships which launch only a year ago. Shame on you htc
