Fitbri, 10 Jan 2018Marketing is something they have needed to do generally speaking. As for U 11, whilst I don't ... morethe htc 11 was plagued with a poor screen, poor audio output and poor build quality (jerryrig) confirms it.
HTC tries too hard to innovate liek the sequeze feature but other OEM just does it better.
HTC should try not to innovate, bring us flagship devices with a oneplus price tag.
That's why oneplus is continuing to make progress and make higher income every year. Oneplus is making a big name for itself and is alread demonstrating it has the power to go against big timers like samsung for much less. Hell, even i have the oneplus 5T
RazIL, 08 Jan 2018U11 was outdated design and overpriced from the moment it reached the market. not everything ... moreMarketing is something they have needed to do generally speaking. As for U 11, whilst I don't own one, the reviews as a daily driver were excellent. Our business is still using HTC One A9. Classy, fast and beautiful to hold as it was one day one. No compelling reason to change yet. Keeping an eye on Nokia 9, Pixel 3 this year and HTC if a partly metal phone is in the offering.

Apple has no competition and is isolated in their iOS ecosystem compared to Android that has hundreds of them. What happened is they picked a different Android Phone just look at how Essential Flop even Razer barely known.
And I doubt Samsung would remove 3.5mm jack anytime soon, just look at the lash back of customers when they removed SD Card on the S6 w/c didnt sell well on its release.
Anonymous, 09 Jan 2018This.... Removing 3.5mm jack was a huge dumb move and hushed potential buyers away.Unlikely, since Apple proved that customers will still buy your phone as long as they like the final product. If or when Samsung remove the jack you can be sure they'll still have strong sales

Looks the same as every clone out there and if anything, they are late to the game with glass sandwich build. Once a pioneer, now a follower

But I removed HTC from my "to consider" list after they removed ... moreI removed HTC from my list after owning two of their devices; Desire Z (was a good one, but horrible battery life and the first unit was DOA) and the last one was a One M8 (I've never felt to robbed after buying a new phone - did not live up to expectations at all and was also extremely hard to sell after a year). Never again, unless they really switch up their game in some way.
sad, but true... :)
After 7 yrs with 4 different HTC models, last year I have switched to stock Android with an upgraded CPU, better camera and less $$$ from Motorola
sorry HTC, but untill you revise the price / components policy, I'll stick to something else... ;)
htc, Kindly look below mentioned point.
Need to learn from below mentioned points.
1. removing of 3.5mm headphone jack is big mistake.
2. price should be in comparative level, majorly in asian country like india your htc device price is very high
3. Need to majorly focus in midrange device with price bracket of 10,000 to 20,000.
4. Improve your UI to stock android, If possible.
Seriously just look at U11+ you just can't buy that anywhere else than official shop for a crazy high price. They have a bad bushiness politics. They produce decent devices but not easily accessible
HTC deserves it. I thought they learned their lesson when they finally unveiled HTC 10.
But their next flagship was a disgrace to what the HTC 10 had established.
They should hire designers from Samsung IMO.
Poor designers U series. haha.
U dig deepere Ur own grave haha.
They dug their own grave, they make really awesome devices, I had 3 devices of them in a row and I considered buying the U11, but they need to understand that they can't price their items as apple and samsung, they are not in the same league, and they don't have the same market, no matter what they want.
their only (but really huge) mistake is the pricing,branding and marketing otherwise they could kill the medium market

A lot of other factors: availability, service support, past dissapointments (a LOT of people).
NOW HTC phones is upgrading, camera is brilliant now, decent battery, ungeneric design, and HTC strongest point: audio second to none.

Then u know what happened next, badluck when they try to copy trends specially from a Fruit Company who have no competition on its ecosystem iOS.
I can't comment about others. But I removed HTC from my "to consider" list after they removed the 3.5mm jack.
Otherwise, they had such solid media package, believe me, HTC was the hardest to reject.
Why should I carry adaptors around for my old but still-awesome headphones? Why?
With such unpopular choices, such as removing the 3.5 mm jack, what did they expect?
It's sad to see this once-great company on such a decline. Hopefully they will come to their senses....
Sad to see HTC at this low point.. Hope that 2018 will bring a fresh new breeze for HTC..
HTC was the Godfather of Android..
HTC housed the first born G1 then Magic
HTC introduced the first aluminum unibody phone with HTC Legend
HTC introduced the first high quality audio with HTC One X+
HTC introduced the first 3D phone with 3D camera and glassless 3D screen with HTC EVO 3D
HTC introduced the first phone for a phone with the HTC mini+ for the HTC One Max
HTC introduced the first non-3D dual camera system with HTC M8
and last but not least..
the legendary HTC HD2
-pioneered the big screen phone we got today
-first 1GHz SOC Snapdragon S1(where Snapdragon was born)
-able to boot multiple OS's Windows Mobile 6.5, Windows Phone 7, Windows Phone 8, Windows RT, Android, Ubuntu etc etc
-it was UPDATED to Android 8.0 OREO since March 2017(no trouble/treble at all)
-it WILL be updated to Android P and Q no doubt
I am always a fan boy of HTC for a long year. They need to revamp their marketing strategy and should follow footsteps of oneplus, the value for money. They should reduce cost of the product in spite of features. The Chinese firms are enjoying the fruit by adopting similar strategy. Market like India need quality products in affordable prices. I hope HTC would shines bright if they reduce the cost.
rafaelo, 08 Jan 2018i know why!!
Before 9 years i bought the HTC Touch Pro for 650 euros.
The product was not re... moreSome geeks think he is master after bought a single HTC phone like 10 years ago then makes ecientific conclusion: ALL HTC phone are crap!
I'm HTC fans for life, tried motorola but 3 of their phones damaged internally when got bumped to car's door, dropped on floor: mics audio din't work, simcard fail to read, camera broken. No mlre mktorola for me because they seem strong kevlar build but the internal is fragile.
Not so with HTC, they survived many falls and beatings. But I KNOW which HTC devices to avoid by reading reviews and spec FIRST before making purchase.
My list of HTC phones:
- HTC Hero
- HTC Desire
- HTC sensation XL
- HTC droid Incredible 2
- HTC evo 4G LTE (Jewel)
- HTC one M7
- HTC one M7 dual sim
- HTC one M8 harman/kardon*
- HTC E8 dual sim
- HTC 10*
- HTC U11
*note: my daily drivers to date
List of HTC phones I deliberately avoided:
- HTC one M9
- HTC Desire midrange series: 816, etc
- All others HTC midrange that uses Mediatek processor: HTC E8+, HTC X series.
I sold my U11 because I don't want to babbysit a phone. It works well, no crack or anything, I'm just scared my expensive phone damaged on my jeans pocket. Switch back to htc 10 to have a peace of mind.
My POINT is, don't stereotyping if you only have one or two phones! I'm entitled to say, not many people familiar experience wise with HTC like I do!
