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?

I've never liked Samsung phones. Not now, not pre-Android, not ever.

For me, it was all about Sony Erricson until Android came along, then HTC. And I've owned a few HTC's (G1 / Dream, Desire HD, Desire S, One X) and each and every time I've loved the phone. My wife and most of my friends all own something from the Samsung Galaxy series and I just hate them.

I hate the fugly colours in Touchwiz. I hate Samsung's choice of buttons on the bottom of the screen (I hate how there's no real back button on the SIII). I hate how light the phone is (I don't want heavy phones either, but I like to feel like I have something substantial for my money instead of a plastic kids toy). I hate the stupid curves of the exterior. I hate every single thing about it. And not even the fact that it's running Android redeems it.

In every single measurement HTC phones runs circles around Samsung. Yet people seem to love those things. So I've often wondered what the draw is as well.
