20 January 2019
A decade ago the iPhone was just starting to get popular and Android was trying to prove it's better than Symbian and WM. Just look at them now.

Anonymous, 21 Jan 2019Huaweis rise is unmatchedIt's easy to rise fast when your home country is almost a third of the world's population and are fiercely loyal to home brands. They still make mediocre phones.

They should have used the HTC Magic instead of the HD2 as it was released earlier in the year. That was a great little phone back in the day.

I have 2 Xperia X10s, one with a dodgy faulty USB port and the other works fine. The latter one is rooted and only issue is it's battery life isn't too good anymore. Great phone just the onboard storage was so small then.

Anonymous, 20 Jan 2019Nokia and Blackberry are not even the same company anymore.They are, but license their brand name for phones. Nokia licenses their brand name to a company that is actually seated right across Nokia HQ, founded by former Nokia employees.

Anonymous, 20 Jan 2019Nokia and Blackberry are not even the same company anymore.Hello.Yes,Nokia and BB are not the same company like 10 years before,because the world has changed.When the market is mature the company tend to imigrate to other country and to license their technology to OEM.And that's what happen to the 2 big giant like BB and Nokia.Nokia now is focused to build infrustructure,and the phone itself is made by HMD company.Same thing happens to BB,which now is more focused on software and security,and license their tech and keyboard,to TCL firm,in a exiting partnership.Overall,whatever it happens,still will continue to produce phones for the fans all over the world.Thank you.

It honestly was a masterpiece in design. And when he showed me the dual cameras and speakers on his M8? I right there and then called out the best phone. I hope HTC can survive by using their new strategy

CptPower, 20 Jan 2019Man jack is not essential. Phone can run without jack but cant ... moreWelp, said someone who also freaking used jack when the wireless headphone still not existed. Ungrateful brat. If jack is not essential why the heck that its still existed for many years even till now? Because its the freaking us consumer friendly. Why not have more when you pay more? Even the freaking phone is big enough to put a jack slot there. Until the wireless headphone that doesn't need battery or charging exist, I will stick to the wired one.
