The market in Q1 2013 has not treated HTC gently. Profit is down by 98%, but HTC is still on the black.

htc you guys have done a fabulous job with the htc one!!no doubt about that infact i used to hate htc because of the custom UI and the specs of your previous phones but now i have to say you guys are doing awesome!but i have to mention that you have to also focus on slightly cheaper phones with meid-specs...mayb like a dual core 1.5ghz with 1GB ram and sense 5...that would surely help boost ur sales and profit margins because not everyone can afford phones like the htc one and the samsung galaxy S4...either ways hands off to you guys!!

Or why not download a offline map for 2gig. Also mp3's take space, likewise if you have movies. That is why people want SD. Its very cheap and you swap it in and out in seconds. Having only internal memory is really bad for customers. Samsung realizes that and that is one of the appealing factors people buy the phone.

This is what happens when you launch flagship phone very close to Samsung yet not able to make it available globally quicker than their competitors. At least Sony is smart. HTC was being too optimistic expecting ppl to buy their product with slight innovation. Samsung just need to do a bit to get their product selling like hot cakes. By the way both smartphones are great.

Thats how it goes when you dont listen to customer and ignore the competitor. If they had made the back cover come of (like the Chinese model) and had added SD card and maybe even removable battery HTC One would be so much more attractive. I personally like the samsung tweaks and the plastic but atleast for people wanting aluminum and those two thing they could have had an option. Now there is only one model to rule them all-->S4.

As was recently indicated in the financial media, HTC is expecting the HTC One device and its successors to turn the company into greater success. This is entirely possible. Look how the global success of Sony's Xperia Z has helped it greatly.

HTC had their time and head start to make themselves saint but they failed.
sure they are respectful but like any other market at the end there will be only giants and ashes!
Samsung or another Android manufacturer Will eventually merge with HTC!

i guess gimmick is the new word for 2013 . yawn yawning

szymon247, 02 May 2013I agree, I think saying that the HTC One is beautiful is kind of... moreBut bezels here have a purpose. Those potent speakers wouldn't fit in a thin bezel. A Galaxy S4 or Xperia Z don't come with the sound prowess of the One. In this case only, I could easily bare thicker bezels.

It's funny that everyone tries to find fault with the S4. Actually, it's perfectly normal to side with the underdog. The HTC One is arguably better looking, however the S4 is more functional. While th HTC One user will have to go to a service to change a burnt out battery, the S4 user will just pop a new one in no time. And the HTC One has a bad camera. Ultrapixels and OIS are innovative, but the lack of detail is inexcusable. I usually need to take pictures of text pages, so detail is vital, at least for me. And finally, the One is too expensive. So, unfortunately for HTC, their flagship will not sell that well.
