PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The reviews are universally positive, and virtually everyone seems to agree: the HTC One is one heck of an Android device, and quite possibly the best phone currently on the market. Outstanding build quality, great design, fast - and just like the One X before it, it looks like to me it's a far better phone than its Galaxy counterparts. Why, then, is no one buying HTC phones?

Answer: Software support (aka upgrades). With Android, a manufacturer's track record regarding upgrades is more important than the product itself

After getting my fingers burnt with my Optimus 2X (G2x for the USA), which got stuck in 2.3.3 forever, and with Sony and HTC not having a stellar upgrade track record either in their flagships, I only think about Samsung. Is Samsung's upgrade track record perfect? No, but it's the least bad out there.

PS: And I am seriously thinking about WP8, though after the WP7-WP8 fiasco my hopes of being able to just upgrade a cellphone like you upgrade a PC grew pretty thin.
