Earlier today, several top designers at HTC were arrested in Taipei under suspicion of fraudulent expense claims, as well as stealing trade secrets ahead of leaving the company to run a new mobile design firm in both Taiwan and mainland China. Five people were interrogated, with the most notable ones being Vice President of Product Design Thomas Chien, R&D director Wu Chien Hung and design team senior manager Justin Huang (who also personally sketched out the One's design). Chien and Wu are taken into custody, whereas the others were released on bail. Their offices were also raided yesterday as part of the investigation.

HTC certainly looks like a sinking ship, doesn't it?

Oh my god, it weighs like a few GOD DAMN GRAMS more! The horror! You must have really fragile arms or something.


Though I have to say, I actually like the fact that HTC phones are heavier than their Samsung counterparts. It feels more substantial - sturdier and better quality.

Of course this is all just dumb user psychology and I wouldn't ever base my purchase on such things. But, for me at least, it's a nice bonus.
