Hurry up and release the HTC Max to compete with the Galaxy Note3... that should help you get some sales.

Q4 should be ok as long HTC gets their One Max and next gen of windows phones into the market on time.

Not to mention make them available to Verizon in the US. At this point HTC shouldn't bother with the One and should just release the One Max for VZW. Of course it may take time for an FCC approval...

HTC needs to change all of their advertisements, make it simple but useful like Samsung's. I love HTC phone (es; HTC One) but i like watching Samsung's advertisements. And if i'm a normal user (dont know and care to find out about the phone or specs) i will be more attracted by the Samsung's advertisements

Red Quarter for sure for Q4, due to Iphone, note3 and honami. Even I dont know what to suggest on HtC this time. They are great in their products but lack of attraction to the people.

Not trying to beat a dead horse here, but, HTC had a lot of long time supporters hoping HTC to bring back removable batteries ever since the EVO LTE. Many customers that never owned HTC products before, gave HTC a chance with the same model. After running into battery issues, new customers are leaving as well as the long time supporters. Only those that seek hardware aesthetics, seem to be the purchasers of the one.
My 18 year old Nephew purchased the ONE because he thought it was "Dope". After experiencing hotter than normal operation and battery issue, he retruned it for another brand. He just didn't want to chance going a two year contract with possible same issues.
HTC made some of the finest phones in the industry until they tried to emulate Apple.

Selling $2.4 billion to have a profit of $42 million? the execs that jumped out of HTC weren't kidding when they said it was falling apart... they should have taken some classes from Apple execs on how to build something, and earn at least 50% profit over it.

Is HTC one available on Verizon? If not why is this on the Verizon page?

It's not available on Verizon yet. It was expected to launch tomorrow, but now seems it will be on August 15th
