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 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..

The last time I saw a comment like this... It was from an Apple fanboy...

83. osmaankhaan unregistered

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!!

you mean what apple said right? Please don't make android phones into whoever sells the most is the best thing..appreciate tech and uniqueness in the market

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.
