Well Done HTC May The Good God Continues To Bless You. HTC For Life No Matter What
Lets go, 04 Jul 2014It is because Apple and Samuel Sung are / were the only phone makers making money And now H... moreAmen, but aside SD card and user replaceable battery I'd rank audio quality and sunlight legibility as being just as important once you got the 2 first covered. And Samsung delivers brillantly in all 4 of them with its top notch audio, AMOLEDS and vast choice of aftermarket extended battery vendors. If HTC or any other company wants to compete, they need to at least equal them in these fields. Otherwise they'll suffer and I'll stick with Samsung, Apple not really being a viable alternative for me because of the first 2 criterias.
Mr Pop-s, 04 Jul 2014nobody mentioned Samsung, and yet you are bringing them in to the discussionIt is because Apple and Samuel Sung are / were the only phone makers making money
And now HTC have broken the "loss" cycle posting a profit
Whilst I can't comment on the ultra pixel HTC have not made the cut due to
NON user changeable battery
They were also NO microSD expansion
But from reading GSMarena News article the LG G3 outsold in the opening days the Samsung galaxy S5
in Korea where both are based
The LG G3 sold THREE time as many!
The LG G3 is essentially the LG G2S
all that LG chave changed is added MicroSD Expansion and REMOVABLE battery apprta from that and QHD display the LG G2 and lG G3 have the same specs but at 13MP less than the S5
Removable battery allows a spare to be carried
It matters if you have bought say a HTC phone and then run out of juice
Gsmarena have always scored "Non user-replaceable battery" as a disadvantage
IMO you compete with Samuel Sung if your counter offer has the 2 staple item removable battery/ microSD
Love HTC.. Everything at HTC is excellent except the Marketing team/tactics & Service after sale. The result of terrible marketing & pricing is known to all. The result of terrible Service after sale has led to Samsung taking over the market coz people have more faith in Samsung coz its Service after sale service is just excellent. If HTC ca improve on these two, HTC can rule..
And also, get rid of 4MP Ultrapixel OR increase the Ultrapixel count to 6.7 or 8.. Plz..
Great News! for it would have been really sad if hTC had died.
Always loved their phones, but can't afford one now - too expensive ;-)
hubble, 04 Jul 2014this is very good new. I want more companies doing better because when competition is strong, ... moreUnfortunately as an industry matures and market becomes saturated, the number of competitors decreases, mainly due to mergers, in order to get scale and to be able to survive with ever thinning margins.
hope the effort of the m7, m8 continue with an amazing camera with the same metal design
good luck and wish you all the best
WoW nice to hear some good news abt a company behind the origin of android os in mobile world as well as first touch hand held device. If you continue to roar ths way HTC, there is definately no end. Your innovations in mobile world is always appreciated!! Keep it Up.
The M8 is a great device, good to see HTC's doing a bit better for a change.
I am glad,,some good news for a change I don't want any of the mobile companys to fail...My first HTC was the SPV on Orange UK over a decade ago,,a windows smartphone.
HTC is like Alfa Romeo.. Beautiful design, amazing performance and soul, with army of loyal fans and like Alfa Romeo once you buy it you always come back to it.. but also like Alfe it always have one little problem with its phones and always have money issues.. and I still love them
