"One series, like sealed battery, microSIMs, and lack of expandable memory slots, have led to sales declines"

Looks like htc finally realise that :)

I love my One X as well. But really wishing it has bigger battery and memory. 16GB doesn't hold much when you are shooting 1080p video.

Yep, and android users are very educated in tech. No memory card and non removable battery isn't cutting it for us. Plus a mediocre battery life ( tegra 3 one x) along with some UI lag doesn't help either. What I think HTC needs to do to be better

- stop that stupid ass "thinness over battery life" mentality and do both.
- exceed your own expectations by offering stellar performance and battery life ( no lag and please at least 4 hours of screen time)
- make sure you test the hell out of your handsets before you release them.
- work on your optimization. ( keep in mind that apple and Samsung aren't playing any games).

If its an iPhone, Sealed battery, Micro SIM, Non- expandable storage is not a problem at all. Its only affecting HTC ? If iPhone 5 would be like this, and I'm sure Phone Arena will rate them with "incredible". Why this Double standards ?

I'm sorry to tell you this but, iPhones are great...... for those who are not tech educated. And for those that really know what their devices are capable of are is only a small part of the whole human population. iPhones are not phones, it's a trend, which I sadly admit.

The only reason I didn't go for the one X, is the sealed battery. I hate this concept. What were you thinking HTC? Thought you would get away like Apple did.

All I'm gonna say is that if your going to seal the battery, and not allow for expandable storage, you better have the best damn battery and pre-packaged storage out there, or else the design becomes flawed...

In both cases I think my One X performs well, with an awesome battery and plenty of storage :), I think HTC's biggest problem is its extremely intrusive sense OS... Seriously guys, we're on JB now, no need for such extensive skins, just add a bit of flair over what google has IMO perfected :D

Can't wait to see what sense 4.2, possibly packing JB has in store for us :)
