HTC: "buyer's remorse coming soon" to Samsung Galaxy S5 owners

0. phoneArena 24 Feb 2014, 14:03 posted on

HTC tries to poke fun at Samsung, implying that Galaxy S5 buyers will regret their purchase once the All New One (M8) is announced. Well, we'll see about that...

How can one have buyers remorse for a product that isn't released yet.. and won't even be released when this is being announced.

Brother u need to relearn the definiton of marketing.
I liked HTC phones at a time (no it was not The One) but they were just snobs when they were on top pricing their products ridiculously and positioning themselves as high-end (this was when android was just a tiny little green robot, cute n all)!

Now the company faces losses and they take cheap shots at Sammyn fr what? just cuz they made one phone....one phone out of metal and glass? with unfinished software? n releasing +versions of their own flagship?

BUYER'S REMORSE DEFINITELY BUT NOT FOR S5 OWNERS BUT FOR THE ONE OR ALL NEW ONE OWNERS!

i think sony feels more premium any day of the week compared to htc.

In my opinion, HTC is already dead, they just dont know it yet!

I would go with Z2 if you are looking into to get a phone that's water proof because Samsung GS4 Active isn't so water proof after all...

Yep, I'd rather get one of those two if the leaked M8 is the real deal.

Not even buyers remorse. Observers remorse would be more accurate. I don't see a compelling reason to trade a GS4 for this. And definitely no reason to trade a Note 3 for it.

I totally agree with you on that... note 3 is a lot better than S5 s**t. to my opinion, note 3 will still rule and Z2 is gonna take Galaxy's crown

What is the tech blog comments section's obsession with Sony phones? No one wants them. No way will the Z2 take any crown.

Because people think Sony is going to overthrow Samsung like it's the 17th century or something.

I drool over Sony products. Always have always will. But lack of a mobile device presence in the US really keeps me from owning a Sony. If this comes as a Google play edition I'd sell my nexus 5 and Google play edition S4 on the drop of a dime.
