as i said before. the only reason htc is barely surviving is due to the vr and not their handsets.
tbh i lost my wow on htc phones since the m7. camera is just garbage tbh,
might as well make quad speakers and remove the camera altogether since even if i take a picture of my hand it ends up as some other "races hand"

How can they be surviving on VR if they haven't even released the headset yet.

Don't expect much from the smartphone division. It has been gradually abandoned after M7 and hardly will be taken care care off. Vive is the future for them. At the end of the day they have to make money and they don't in phone arena. Cha cha PhoneArena :)

This is good news for HTC I guess...but considering Samsung & Xiaomi are also kings in this category, I just think this is all 'Initial hype'

Unlike HTC partnering with Steam, Samsung and Xiaomi have an absolute 0 chance of ever become content producers to support the VR ecosystem. If they only aim to make money from hardware then they will only end up being undercutted by new competitors who can make copies for less money.

Agree, this is totally on a different level.

Htc is done, they are dead to me. They should just give up on their mobile division and focus on vice.

HTC is not done. I plan to buy their next flagship phone and I've been far happier with their past phones then I've been with this Galaxy S6 I currently have.

Yay!!! I'm so happy for HTC. I'm pulling for them, hoping they succeed. Compared to Apple, Samsung, LG and other Chinese OEMs, HTC is very small, but they keep trying and I respect their tenacity.

Let's hope they make more, because their smartphones are way better than a lot of smartphones out there, their ui is the best one that i've ever seen, they need to improve on camera and they need to promote their products well.
