Htc best ever, nobody beat HTC

LLL, 14 Aug 2019Wondering why no giant corps buys out HTC in entirety and revive... moreBecause there is no reason to buy HTC's mobile business. Each company has basically four strengths: 1- valuable brand (one that people associate with what they need and expect); 2 - valuable products; 3 - valuable know-how (innovative technologies, unique manufacturing processes, etc.); 4 - valuable workforce and assets (specialists within unique-for-the-business R&D divisions). HTC doesn't have neither of these four basics. The value of their business is indeed low, but because of lacking these four strengths. Since it's been years since their last good phone entered market, the brand "HTC" is also devalued. If theoretically a company buys HTC, it will have to build up from almost ground zero, which will greatly add to the cost of the purchase and profit margins will shrink greatly and even go negative.

I think brands with bad sales or bad profits/loses can be merged and create one very powerful Smartphone brand. Otherwise they will lose huge money.

Wondering why no giant corps buys out HTC in entirety and revive it...
Stock price is low, and the new owner should just get rid of the current top management and put more capable people in charge...

HTC is lost in a sea of xiaomi, Huawei, Vivo, TCL, Asus, etc, etc...

Just wondering why HTC is still at Gsmarena top brands. They are just dropping their phone department.,.....

As long as HTC will be stuck with updates such as LG and selling overpriced junk they will be in red until they will be gone.

Remember less is mostly more.
In this case less profit with more sales is better than almost no sales with huge profit.

I hope for HTC they bring a very cheap device like many Xiaomi phones are. Pricing is extremely important in India, which is a huge market. HTC deserves to be taken serious again as smartphone maker, whether it'll be in the high end devices or the budget ones.

In the big picture this might not be too bad actually. Since google acquisition coupled with market feedback and quietness. It allows time for regrouping. I hope such an historical innovative company finds it fertile soil and a great phone.
