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?

Two ways that people buy cell phones

There are two ways that people buy cell phones.

1) Either while walking past a kiosk at the mall or when going into a cell phone store they ask what the person behind the counter recommends. They then buy that phone.

Keep in mind that the phones most likely pushed by these people are the ones that company is being paid to push.

2) The person knows what they want to buy before they go into the store.

This is mostly through advertising and what their friends have.


If you want to know what most people are buying, go survey kiosks and Verizon/ATT&T, etc. and see what phones are being pushed.


Me, I'll always be buying an Apple phone. I like things that just work from buying content and apps to connecting it to my computer to update or wirelessly updating. Nobody has Apple beat.

Of course everyone has a [sensored]-hole and an opinion.
