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?

Here's why I don't by HTC devices: It's not a Google Nexus device.

I have the Captivate (Galaxy S), with my wife having the Galaxy Nexus, and I'm not buying another phone that doesn't come with stock Android and doesn't get updates from Google.

Cyanogenmod was better supported on Samsung phones, so Samsung phones were the ones to buy for people using custom ROMs. Consequently, tech enthusiasts ended up recommending Samsung devices more often.

I have less confidence in HTC software then Samsung software, and I don't have a whole lot of confidence in Samsung software.
