To those frowning at design, the lack of designing creativity with touchscreen phones is normal, because screen itself takes about 90% of front surface of the phone, so there is not much room to work with.

Best thing HTC can do is to sack all design team. same boring designs and all look the same.
Htc needs to put some micro sd ports on its devices so it won't be a fail...again...like the htc one series
