Good sales of HTC One lead to a second month of sequential growth for HTC
HTC hit the bottom low this February with revenues dropping and that’s when it announced the HTC One, its 2013 flagship. The HTC One still faces an uphill battle against heavyweights like the Samsung Galaxy S4, but initial sales are good and in March HTC rebounded, and now in April HTC grows sales once again by a healthy 26%.

The Taiwanese phone maker recorded sales of NT$19 billion (around $642 million) in April which is still way down compared to the NT$30 billion the company had in April of 2012. But those yearly comparisons aren’t really very indicative given the company’s troubled state. What matters right now for HTC is to make maximum use of the momentum with the One.

Those two months of continuous growth have analysts hopeful the company can start a comeback.

There are a lot of hurdles in the way but HTC’s own target of NT$70 billion for the second quarter of the year now seems realistic.

I believe the samsung fanboys do the same thing. Everyone should be free to choose what phone they like best without being bashed or their choice being bashed, its childish. I could careless what phone someone else picks, their choice.

Good resale value comes after popularity, so once they sell more and become popular, this problem with automatically go away (look at iphone, toyota, etc.)

My htc one is a very well designed smartphone.
the touch on my hand, and the blink feed , and zoe are really nice innovations. Good job HTC! And I love the wide angel on the f**king ultra pixel camera! :D
S4 is a nice phone. but. if it was a different design. It would have be a way better phone.

Ignore them, trolls love getting thumbs down and they love to thumbs down other peoples.

Trolls just want attention, if we ignore them, they will "magically" disappear. :)

HTC worked their ass off and successfully combined all of their expertise into the HTC One and despite a temporary parts shortage for its revolutionary Ultrapixels camera (which slowed down mass-production for its first two months after launch) and Samsung paying college students to post false negative comments about the HTC One, it's great to see HTC finally making some profits.

Good to see, i hope accessories makers make more accessories because currently there are not much for the HTC One.

The best and proven way to find out the best in the world android smartphone is only by sales figures so let the sales speak for itself..

there's a big difference in that time and now, since that time there was literally no competition but now the competition is neck to neck so only way to determine is to agree upon one proven way and what's better than sales to do so!!

Instead of fighting for a company as if it is your father's, purely based on stupid sales figures (just google: how to increase our sales,.. to know how many factors affect the sales), try to appreciate the company that truly innovates and brings useful features that benefit consumers.

So to put it in simple words: htc one in many ways is what your previous pbones have never been: exceptionaly looking good, great ff stereo speakers, great low light pics, zoe and blinkfeed,
On the other hand s4 is everything your phone has already been and just improving it further,

Not really as everyone has a personal preference. Just cause one phone sells more then another doesnt automatically mean its the "best", as sells figures dont speak for EVERYONE. No single phone is PERFECT for everyone, no matter what sales figures say. This comment is for osmaankhaan.

How's that battery life on your Htc One? ?? Pretty sure it's way below My Galaxy Note 2. If you can prove 19hrs of battery life daily with 9 to 11hrs of onscreen time daily.

the battery life on my HTC ONE is amazing. it last 1 full day and few hours more. i watch alot of YouTube views and play games and listen to music. i have to give htc big credit this time they fix there batteries past issues for the htc one they listened. i'm so happy with my HTC ONE

The last time Apple innovated was 2007... Since then its been the same o same o just in a different guise.

But i can still read some apple's new patents.. i dont love apple nor hate them coz i dont have d right, it is just that i dont like iphone for me haha :)

Samsung, Sony, HTC, Apple, LG and others are innovating..
We can accept this if we are open-minded and leave the hate in d dust :)

Good post, not everyone has to love every company, but you dont have to bash the ones you dislike, or bash the ppl that love the one you dislike. Everyone has a personal preference and its good that we have choice. Imagine if all we had to choose from was samsung and HTC, that would be boring pretty quick

Everyone has a personal preference, get over it. You dont have to like a certain company, but it also doesnt mean you have to bash on them. If you dont like their phones, simply dont buy them, not like those companies are bashing you personally or hurting you in anyway. Ppl need to stop being such radical fanboys and let ppl pick the phone they want and get over it. And this comment was for osmaankhaan

Nothing to fear,as sgs4 is still the better phone overall and is selling more. Wait for few months as numbers will speak for itself.

Gsmarena, Phonearena, Cnet, (the Verge-out of 10 factors, htc one outper4ms gs4 in design only but that made a huge difference coz gs4 got only 5/10)

Both are great phones in their own reason and for a group of consumers

Huh? Smartphone prevail?

They won't say which smartphone win or lose, they will just say which smartphone is more suitable for you.

And so, there you have it, Android Authority always make fair comparisons! And they're your source for all things Android! :)

You are the one who is lying S4 gets the nod on every website for best phone overall and not only best phone but light years above competitors with its software .Why all the hate against Samsung when everyone knows that Samsung makes the best phones today?Htc makes good phones yes like all other competitors but only Samsung goes the last mile to add the little xtra that makes them different .
