Hehehe, seems this company are really set out to compete with samsung. It's good cos this is the last time Samsung will give any HTC Fon a chance to come this close. The next s5 will not be anything an HTC Fon can compete with. It will be light years ahead of any other Fon on the market.

You must be new to the industry so I'll fill you in: people have been saying that the "next Samsung phone" will be light-years ahead of any competition for the last three years now, but the fact is they have run away from the competition because of marketing and market saturation. People said the S3 would be the phone to end all phones. That didn't happen. The same was said about the S4, but that was even more disappointing. Samsung makes great phones, but to assume they will somehow be "lightyears" ahead of the competition makes no reasonable sense.

I realize the GS4 is selling better in most areas but we are actually selling 3-4 times more HTC Ones than GS4s and that's even with there being Galaxy fanboys where I work lol. Even they recognize the HTC One as being amazing! As much as I don't care for Android, those are both sweet phones :-D

Only 5 million? I thought it sold over 10 million! Never mind, the HTC One is still a gorgeous phone! Keep it up HTC!

Congratulations HTC! But why you lick Apple Ass?! We are Android and we must fight with American company made in China.

Depends, did you post your reply from a phone? If so which one?..... lol, All jokes aside, I'm thrilled to hear HTC putting up good numbers. They were always my first choice untill they made Sense 4 WAY to heavy. I parted with them for Nexus, and now that they fixed Sense (Sense 5 is amazing btw if you havn't used it) I'm happily back with HTC, using the DNA (rooted of course). Keep it up HTC, dont go down with out a fight!

Lol good one. I'm actually using the 5 today. Since the notes battery is so good I tend not to charge it daily. Well this morning it was at 12%, so it stayed home. I love all the choices in mobile now...much more diversity

Two different numbers? Or are you on GSM and just swap the sim?

No the notes uses micro sim the 5 uses nano. I went to a local third party retailer called ETC wireless. They cut the micro down to fit a nano slot, and gave me a small case to put it in, so it also fits micro. That allows me to simply swap sims when I want. The insurance will only cover the phone that's the sims registered to though.

Sorry to rain on HTC's parade, but the usually accurate KGI Securities report said weeks ago that HTC will only be able to produce 500k or so units before the Summer. I understand there's need for damage control after yesterday's news and I wish HTC nothing but the best, but any report over a million of the extremely troublesome Ones sold is simply fabrication. The phone is still held back in many markets and camera and audio chips are only getting better yield rate as we speak. 5M is fantasy.

HTC deserve it, because they made the best looking smartphone(HTC One) to date!! I only want HTC to continue in the same way and to make software update faster!! :)

Phonedog ranking is plenty convincing to me.

I like how phonedog lists ranking for people's choice and expert. It really give you the wider picture of what's the best out there. Think two years back, experts all voted for iPhone 4 while the people choice was the Galaxy.

FALSE! HTC hasn't and couldn't even produced nearly that many HTC One's. They need to get better sources
