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?

Few things

1. From my experience I can tell, that all smartphones are crap. HTC, Samsung, LG - they have the same level of failure. Some models are better, some of them not.

2. Know your rights. If you live in EU and your phone is broken you've got always two options. Go to a seller (probably your carrier), or go to the authorized service center (usually via carrier). At first try service center. Always(!!!) take a photos of your phone, and write down everything you can tell about your unit. If they say, that it's broken because of you, go to your seller/carrier and ask them for a new phone or a full refund. They will try send you back to the service center. Don't do it. Go to your local Consumer Advocate, they will help you. 3 month with the phone in the service is outrageous.

3. I'm not a dev, but there is an official bootloader unlocker at http://www.htcdev.com/

4. Regular Jan Kowalski(polish Jon Smith) don't give a ....... about SD card, or battery, or software. They buy what they already know, ant usually it's Samsung (or Nokia in Poland). Samsung ads are everywhere. I'm sick of them.
Three(?) months ago, one polish carrier advertised HTC 8X with a nice contract - 26$ for 2000 minute (unlimited in the network), 2GB of data, HTC for 1 zloty (about 20 eurocents). What Samsung did? They paid them more, and one week later there were no HTC ads, but Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini with the same contract. It's always like this.
