They just go for the logo and thats it."
Or... maybe they just want smooth great working device which actually feels the price of the money you paid ;)
By the way why people who understand about technology cant choose iPhone? Also most of smartphone buyers lets say 95% doesnt understand about technology anyway ;)
I would not call myself a samsung fanboy, however I do promote Samsung phones over any other manufacturer as i believe that they are at the fore front of innovation. Saying that they have let themselves down in this instance and HTC have just done what it is all about in this game "customer service"
An unexpected gesture from HTC will win them a lot of hearts and customers.
Samfan, 28 Jul 2014Its not all about deeper blacks. The backlight of LCD and IPS weakens the original colours of ... moretrue taht you cant really compare both of the technology that way, they both have they advantages and shortcomings, for example
AMOLED is great with blacks(almost nonexitent energy draw) but struggle with whites (high power consumption when diplaying whites)
amoled uses pentile matrix , to evade the sucky blue pixel fading(doesn't really matter anymorewith high PPI display)
oversaturated, even on natural setting in samsung phones, (more than 100% rgb gamut,check ericas review on youtube, she is using a dedicated screen tester equipment to measure the saturation)
because amoled technologhy is relatively new compared to matured LCD.
LCD has the advantage of moderate energy draw
specwise sharper display (RGB matrix, again doesnt really matter on high ppi screens)
and more to live color 100% grb gamut (then again manufacturer tend to oversaturate everything )
at the end its a matter of preference , and for me , its IPS lcd best
Long live HTC.
I was thinking to buy SG S5 but not now because of their behavior
With their customers.
Of course I shall buy now HTC M8 who cares others too.
I really appreciate HTC's thinkings.
HTC are no Angels, we where waiting for promised JB Android for months on s1, will never buy HTC again. sorry
Pedrett, 28 Jul 2014very funny obviously you have never held an aluminum body phone, are you hearing yourself out... moreHave you considered one more thing... As sammy can not match the built quality of hTC - they will say some thing like this or other... Perhaps the person is also complete unaware of the world recognized fact that AMOLED does not produce real life colors....
yet they refuse to replace a guy's M7/8 that has the purple camera issue. rofl. All marketing, they don't care about people.

BTW it seems that the phone is not alone which got burnt, it burnt a few arse as well..

Techno J, 28 Jul 2014I'm the one of a few who give up Samsung's OLED panels and move to LCD. For me there is no muc... moreIts not all about deeper blacks. The backlight of LCD and IPS weakens the original colours of the pixels which results a greyish tone on those panels unlike AMOLED. LCD and IPS panel pixels can't light up themselves and the backlight gives you a fake colour and their colours therefore can not be natural and they are not. AMOLED is still a new technology and I don't see any LCD and IPS displays out there in the very near future because they are too old now.
Wow! HTC tht's cool,...I hope u've(HTC)spot in Nigeria especially Lagos,Port Harcourt,& Abuja!?

obviously you have never held an aluminum body phone, are you hearing yourself out pal?
you are all the time holding your phone with your hands & the feeling of the body is something you'll never forget when you are using the phone.besides of it being always cooler than plastic bodies.
