HTC ends 2013 with an operating loss, but net profit - read the full textHTC has just posted its financial report for Q4 of 2013 showing it made a profit of $10.3 million thanks to selling its remaining stake in Beats Electornics. Take that out and you see a quarterly operating loss of $52.7 million - a second consecutive one after a disappointing Q3. Total revenue...

It was gud to see HTC release several mid-range phones starting from late last year till now, especially the ones replicated after the flagship, HTC One.But HTC should try to make the prices of their mobile phone (especially the mid-range smartphones)competitive with other leading smartphone makers. They should wake up and stop comparing themselves with Apple knowing android platform is highly competitive now. It's better to use plastic/poly-carbonate materials in making their phones, and sell cheaper than to use aluminium uni-body/very expensive materials in making their phones only to sell at ridiculously expensive prices...and end up in recurrent losses. HTC sure makes the best of smartphones! Wishing HTC good-luck in year 2014.

Lol,,what is the benefit of only review,, it wasn't best looking phone(xperia z),best features in a phone(s4),and it's sell still was lower than Xperia z, z helped sony to decrease its lose,one has a very crapy camera,and the fact that it's price is higher than z and s4 dont show HTC's greatness in contrast it show weakness and low sell,if they decrease its price HTC will be destroyed completely,,but I still prefer htc 100time to worst manufactur LG.

Yes they should drop the Beats Audio as we can make our own EQ which sounds better, My Incredible S sounds more than HTC One on headphone.

I am a previous SG1 and sow a SG3 but will Def choose the next HTC flagship over SG5 in order to support them. and I know it will be an amazing phone from now

I'm not a HTC fan at all, but saying no body cares HTC phones is too out of the line, IMHO.

Yeah, compelling mid-range phone with crappy Snapdragon 200 CPU, Adreno 203 GPU, a pedestrian camera, and yet a steep price tag that is dangerously close to the other OEMs' flagships. Poor HTC.

Htc still makes better quality phones then others. It's just that they don't know how to market and run the company management wise.

HTC was the first to introduce a pen on tablet"HTC Flier". HTC should have continued developing this idea now Samsung makes top selling Galaxy Note range.
