But that is not their intention. The U12+ 128 GB is not sold in Europe, only the one with 64 GB storage. The U11+ is available in the online store in only one colour (the plain black), when other markets can choose from 4 colours...
HTC may make good phones, but they also make it hard for people to buy them.

The last words apply for an ordinary human but i am not an ordinary human and i never inted to be. But thats a very long story. From beggining of my existence i am trying to be tottaly unique in other words different.
37 years passed from my beggining and i am still absolutely different.
Sony is very far from having best for a bang of bucks and they never intend to be.
Sony is an remarkable and reliable brand but even a quality product can be make for much less money.
Like Mi8 series.
For same specs Sony phone will cost like 1200.

Therefore I am using a Sony phone right now. It doesn't matter to me whether a company mints money like Apple or loses like HTC. They might sell more eventually. You never know what happens in the future.

They profit maybe in Japan but behind the Japanese borders Sony is just a shipwreck.
Everything is about money. Company who dont make a profit is sentenced to the death.
Nobody will and nobody would support a dying brand.

HTC Sony and LG barely selling.
In my shop i barely see an LG phone once a wekk or two. In case of HTC is like 1 phone per month. And Sony is like every 2 weeks someone looking for a case for Sony phone.
But inn case of Samsung Huawei Xiaomi and Apple every single day i have a couple of customers looking for acesorize for their phones.

Huawei makes good phones though, and only the 2 Galaxy flagships from Samsung are decent.

Any true phone enthusiast will know that HTC phones actually use very, very high quality parts even though the spec sheets doesn't show. They just don't know how to market/advertise their phones to the general public
Pfft as always the comments here are coming from people who never even use HTC phones before
Dear HTC just leave and please take Sony and LG aong with you they loosing as well.
They need a brand new phone series. They have a name in this industry, and the squeeze tech isnt really exciting.
Some people always think HTC's price is too high, but they don't know that HTC uses much better hardware than those Chinese brands. unfortunately, people are already unfamiliar with HTC's cell phones. they only see the surface parameters, such as CPU and RAM. Nowadays, other brands are frantically marketing online. this is the worst thing HTC is good at. HTC may learn from oneplus, keep a lot of youtuber and the media to brainwash people, and let HTC return to people's vision.
They lost me way back...HTC could have been where Pixel is now...without google involved. But they kept phones like the butterfly series out of major markets and lost track on innovation and design-language. Look back at HTC One X - what a beast! HTC HD2 - weird but loved by many! They tried and try to hard to compete with samsung and apple - for no good reason.
People care only about money. And I'm taking about ALL the people working in a company.
From the security guard at the door, all the way to the owner. None of them really give a damn about what the client really wants. They just want our money.
That's why you get features cut, like SD card slot (SD cards nowadays are VERY GOOD but most of the people are being influenced to think they are outdated - Also the GOOD ones are very expensive - most people try cheap SD cards).
Another so called "innovation" is the removal of the 3.5mm jack.
Sealed batteries are made to force us to buy new phones more often.
Updates are being released very slow and too late..
I recently had a discussion with someone working in a high post of a very big carrier. He had NO clue what I was talking about when I asked why do carrier locked smartphones get the updates so slow.
He didn't even know what I meant by "updates". I asked what version of Android he had and I got the same answer. I had to show him where to look!
These are the people we are working with! Clueless sheeps wanting nothing but money.
No innovation, no headphone jack, no stereo speakers, copying other phones and price.
Solve these problems and you’ll earn money again.
“To HTC CEO”
alnherco, 07 Jun 2018I live in southeast europe as well Haha, but you dont live in same hole as I. Bosnia and Herzegovina :D
It is because their products are pricey. No inovation at all. Price minus 200£ for flagships and people will buy it.
