PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "HTC has just announced its unaudited results for the second quarter 2013, and they're not pretty. Despite launching a much-lauded flagship smartphone, the HTC One, the company made just NT$1.25 billion (roughly $41 million) after tax from NT$70.7 billion ($2.35 billion) revenue. In the same quarter last year, the company took in revenue of NT$91.04 billion ($3 billion) and made NT$7.40 billion ($246 million) profit." Make the best Android phone - and perhaps, the best phone period - and still not be out of hot water. And people still claim the smartphone market is not a one-to-one replica of the desktop market. Anywho, another victim of iceberg Apple and hurricane Samsung.

Everyone I know for a while bought HTC's. They then experienced HTC's upgrade policy and their build quality (not build materials).

Whilst not everyone had bad experiences, its not that surprising that they are where they are.

Also Sense UI yuck! and those buttons gahh!

The most common phones I see now amongst them are Samsungs, Apples and Sonys.
