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?

Samsung knows how to sell

Samsung's niche has always been finding the right combination of features that will grab the most buyers. Not the highest quality of those features, but checkboxes that a savvy consumer is looking for.

Right now, Samsung is winning becuase of three primary features that people say they need and other phones lack:

1) Removable battery
2) Expandable Storage
3) Big screen

Notice the lack of "Build quality". That's not an accident. Most people ( myself included) don't care. This is why IBM sold off its laptop division to Lenovo. People aren't willing to trade features for build quality. Its a "nice to have".
