Good sales of HTC One lead to a second month of sequential growth for HTC

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 don't see where all this talk of HTC one selling well is coming from. Maybe in America. Htc is essentially an American company now any way. Even in Taiwan, people buy more Samsung and Sony products. The Americans have adopted HTC as their own. Look at all the biased reviews from the American tech sites. Here in the UK and also in Europe, it's far behind the other two manufacturers in sales terms. I read an article on the guardian website which referenced a survey conducted by mobi.com looking at which new devices people hand in their hands. According to that survey, apart from Apple and Samsung, they said Sony Z was far ahead of the rest. The htc one was in last place behind even the Z10. Another financial site claimed htc has only managed to sell 700000 units of the one globally in March and April combined. Those are very pathetic figures when you consider that Sony sold 4.6 million Zs in 40 days. I think it's just a sign of just how desperate HTC fanboys are that they just troll the internet, from YouTube to tech sites deluding themselves. Wake up and smell the coffee, no ones interested in the One. I keep trying to get people at work to check out the One and nobody cares. The choice for them is between the S4 and Z. The American techies have just adopted htc as their new iPhone putting out biased review after biased review. They think consumers are fools. To me, the S4 is a bigger upgrade from the s3 than the HTC One is from the one x. At least you get a bigger Screen with higher resolution and a better camera. With the One, all you get is higher res display. Finish!

I am just glad that HTC has stopped the bleeding. The 8X Windows Phone sold better then expected, and the ONE has taken off like the GS1 series did for Samsung 4 years ago. This may be the Android that launches HTC back into direct competition with Sammy. Here is hoping Sony follows suit, and the Motorola finds the kind of success worldwide that it has on Verizon.

f@@k yaa..... HTc is way much better then S4. S4 stands nowhere near to this beauty ,. If htc cud advertise properly and make timely updates then seriously its a big contender. Samd@@g is for me will b a cheap chinese cmpany and not a gud korean company. Fake dumb advt by samd@@g again and people falling fr it. Htc better market urself well

This is optimistic bulls**t!. We are already in May with barely two months before q3. There is no way they are going to make their target considering where they are now. The 1st month and to a lesser extent the second, is when the strongest sales are made. That time has come and passed, sales will gradually decline from here on. You've got the S4 and iPhones still selling heavily and not to forget the Sony Z which hoovered up most of those consumers who were looking for something different. Add to that the rumours of the upcoming samsung and sony devices. The HTC's time in the spot light has passed and you jokers need to accept that fact. Once the Sony honami with it's 20mp camera, 800 cpu, and dedicated walkman amplifier chip or the Butterfly 2 or new LG phone both with 800 cpus appear, the story of the One will come to an end finally. The One will ultimately be another HTC tale of missed opportunity. Gambles in the choice of aluminium and camera type haven't paid off and they'll feel the commercial pain of that. The smartphone market is a very saturated place and devices, especially droids have no more than a couple of months to make an impression. That window has passed for the one. Sales of that phone will decline steadily from here on as rumours of newer devices abound and once most of them are launched in q2 and q3, the One will hit the end of it's road. Me personally, I don't see this phone even generating the same level of sales figures as even the Sony Z never mind S4 and iPhone

Its not the best for everyone tho. Ppl do have PERSONAL preferences. Just because someone likes a different phone than you doesnt mean its a crap phone. These fanboy wars are getting very old and immature. Who cares if someone buys a phone that you dont like, its their money so therefore its their choice! Ppl should buy the phone they like and want, that best suits their preferences and not be bashed for it, that is childish my God. Both phones are great, but it doesnt make one the "BEST" because a consumer says so, as everyone has personal opinions, so get over it ppl.

It's good that HTC is slowly rising again because of The One. It would be better if HTC feeds us more TV ads for The One. I personally don't like the new Galaxy S4 ads. :/

This basically means that One is doing this all by itself..what other phone did HTC release this year? This time last year there were the One x, One s, and a few cheap desire spin offs

I'd say dictating their needs and exceeding the expectations while giving back strong support and great service to your customers is a recipe for success.

Not everyone shares the same opinion as you though. Everyone has a personal preference. The S4 might be better for YOU, but the HTC One might be better for someone else. Everyone should be able to choose which phone they want and like best, and not be bashed for it cause someone else has a diff opinion, its childish. Who cares if someone doesnt like the same phone as you, its their money, so therefore their choice.
