The folks over at HTC aren't really having the time of their lives right now. The company has been having financial difficulties, with last quarter not showing any signs of revival...

htc is following what apple is doing, tryng not to rely too much on samsung for its spare parts. it makes good business sense coz buying from your competitor will only give them a heads up on what you are doing or give them an idea on which of your product is doing well.

I own an HTC phone now (EVO Shift) and I'm making the jump to the Galaxy Note II when it drops and i have no problems with HTC and if anything if HTC isn't doing so well and there are no signs of recovery maybe there should be a merger/ acquisition on Samsung's behalf cause the two on their own make pretty decent products a combo on their tech and hardware would be something to see in my opinion.

HTC will continue to go down, for one reason. Samsung is trying to take down Apple and will take all other Androids manufacturers in the process.. Samsung wants to be the only manufacturer of Android at least the one that matters...

wrong, apple fired the first bullet its apple's intention to stop the competition not compete. i love how you go on that samsung are this anti competitive company yet you blindly support apple to an extent that shows you as a mindless sad little ifan.

sansumg arent the reason HTC are going down, one main reason is people like you who dont know about tech and buy for the brand and the bragging rights you believe it gives you.

as for this

''Samsung wants to be the only manufacturer of Android at least the one that matters...''

where's your proof of this then

Samsung does not want to dominate the market. It will be bad business for them since they supply a lot of the parts for electronic devices. Samsung would had no issue with Apple until Apple started poking them. HTC has the same atitude as Apple. Samsung is like Texas Instruments, this is nearly nothing in this world a electronic that does not have a Samsung part in it. They only interested in buying advance chips if you are welling to sale your engineering ideas.

Well, you're right about one thing.... HTC will continue to go down. However, that's not Samsung's fault, HTC makes poor business decisions. HTC will continue to go down as long as they can't make good decisions. The marketing for the One series this time is great, but they limited their sales by having One X selling on AT&T. How do they expect to ever come back with just One X on AT&T and One S on T-Mo? They're just pushing the sales to go to GS3.

All manufacturers are trying to take each other down, that's competition and greed of business people. Why settle for second place when you could beat all others to be first? No business is in the business to be in second place.

Well... what could guarantee HTC won't spend more on parts? Trying to hurt a multinational conglomerate by not buying its parts? Seriously?

If they just spent a little more time perfecting their products and allowing them to be as flexible as possible while enhancing them, they could battle in a better way.
