i'm just wondering, do you feel you will get paid or are you getting paid by samsung if you come into the comments section of a positive article about htc and try to discredit the company? or are you just butt hurt for some unknown reason? i'm just wondering what you gain by taking the time out of your day to make yourself seem like a hurt samsung fanboy.

Nothing butt hurt about my comments. I am just getting the word out. Unfortunately, only myself and the employees leaving in drove knows how crappy of a company HTC is. You will soon figure it out yourself after your 10th exchange and still not finding a phone as flawless as a Samsung or Apple product.

I don't know, Verizon pushes their holiday marketing pretty hard, and by that time the DNA 2 (or whatever they call it) will be out, no doubt it will rack up sales for HTC. It's a tough competition between Samsung and HTC this year, of course Samsung will sell more, but HTC just took a huge step in the right direction to get Samsung and Apple like reputation; not only is their product ultra high quality in almost every aspect, but they're marketing the One like crazy. I've seen more One ads than I have seen of the GS4.

Ok, the HTC One may be a great phone, but "tough competition" between HTC and Samsung? it's not even close. let's see the lineup that's still selling left and right: S4 (record numbers), Note 2, S3, and even the antiquated S2 has been updated to Jellybean. now, as far as a NEW verizon HTC phone, I don't see one coming anytime soon, unless you can post a link that none of us have seen up to this point. i'm going with the "too little, too late" way of thinking for HTC. unless sammy steps all over thier stuff in the next 2-3 years.

I wasn't talking completely about sales. I was talking in actual product quality, something sales aren't always indicative of; and on those terms HTC is actually close to Samsung, some might even say they're already surpassed Samsung in quality with the One. Even when talking about sales, HTC has made a HUGE improvement over last year. In Q4 of 2012 (covering 3 months), they sold about 7 million units, that covers all their phones available at the time; the One sold 5 million in 1 month by itself. The One is a major turn around for them Also, HTC and Verizon typically release a phone every holiday season, around November. I expect this year to be no different.

What I don't understand is all hatred towards HTC by Android fans. I do think Samsung makes the better phones than HTC but that's because Sammy's offerings suit my wants and needs better. If you truly love Android then you should be happy 5 million people chose the One and not WP or iOS. Android fans need to unite and just be glad we have SO many choices compared to other platforms.Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony who cares? It's ANDROID FTW!

Honesty, I think it's just mostly the Samsung fanboys who talk trash about HTC. More than half of these fools were HTC users back in 09/10 but once Samsung got to iPhone status it was like anything other than Samsung is not good.. real android users appreciate the fact that android has grown and there are many devices that are kick a$$, and all of them BEAT iPhone hands down..

I will agree that these are sammy fanboys. But this is Phonearena, survival of the fittest LoL When Samsung is on top, all other fanboys out there wther Nokia, HTc sony LG will target the articles.. We couldn't do anything.
