I/we all have tried thru comments or even articles on many blogs to prod HTC to make adjustments in their design and pricongrats but those changes seem not to be happening or don't go far enough. Meanwhile new OEM entrants are delivering on design, specs and lower prices. In this scenario many long time HTC fans are or have shifted their loyalties to many of the new Companies as well as to Samsung which is doing well in satisfying customer needs.
This HTC managers really like idea of selling old hardware for high prices(i guess they have a good deal on HD than no one other wants anymore) and they are convinced that they will do a good job with it and get a lot of money.... But they don't know that no one wants to buy a phone with P10 or SD801, sd810, sd410 in 2017.
So they will just lose on this one too.
I guess their thoughts are that HTC is still big name, so people will be buying no matter what they offer and will not ask for a pruce, but that days are long time passed... HTC is not big anymore, and it doesn't have blind fans like some others do.
I don't feel sorry for HTC or for those management, but many people will lose jobs for their bad decisions, while they will still find a way to get their bonuses...even if in their CV stays that the ware the ones that killed onece great company, that HTC was.
And they'll price it like it is a peice of gold. They should really consider their price policy.
