HTC grows momentum in April, still has to catch up with last year sales
All eyes seem to be on HTC now as the company seems to have pulled out a better-designed Android flagship in the form of the One X than Samsung did with its Galaxy S III. And a little uptick in sales might be the proof. 

In April, HTC registered slightly higher numbers compared to March, with consolidated sales amounting to nearly $1.06 billion (T$31 billion). This is slightly above the T$30.9 billion in March, but still down 20% when fared against last April’s T$38.7 billion.

This is the second consecutive month of HTC sales climbing up as it’s rolling out its One series across the globe.

The company was among the best Android performers last year, when it suddenly fell out of grace in the third quarter of the year as the HTC Sensation started to show its age and the company didn’t compensate with new announcements. Now, that we have the full info about the Samsung Galaxy S III, what’s your opinion about HTC’s chances to make a comeback? Let us know in the comments below.

HTC one X has a better design form factor but i'll pick the GS3 anytime due to it's slickish performance,far better than HTC one X

@ blinkdagger And what might that really be for a missed?a none removable battery or a none removable/expansion in built 32GB which only 26GB is available in actual usage?

15. wendygarett unregistered

It simply means sense ui (active lockscreen, imagesense etc)

@wendygarett Sense UI and Beats audio are awesome still pick the GS3 anytime anywhere cause there are much more new innovative feature on the GS3 and most of all slick webbrowser rendering etc,LOL

I must agree with you on that. The new features, like being able to text and watch my movies at the same time really grabbed me. Samsung did have some good innovation features but I'm at least half an artist, and Samsung SG3's design doesn't attract me in any way. I find the SG2 looking better, if only SG2 came out earlier I would of gotten the SG2. Let's just see what happens on SG4 next year. One X is definitely my pick this year with the hardware specs all hitting my requirements. If I'm really that crazed about the new features, I'll just wait and see if xda will provide that to me.

overall there is nothing on the market which can match SGS III performance wise. and i dont know why we were expecting an alien ware design. i mean SGS III might not be the best looking device on the planet but its not bad either. i am sure sammy will have sales to prove it. i will be the best selling android of the year.

To run this phone with_along Android and sense, it Takes up massive 530mb ov ram, only leaving u with Just 300mb to play around with.... This phone should Atleast come with 1500mb Ram.... Stupid engineers....

i guess the problems is that they wan to keep the price tag attractive enough to lure in consumers than making the best phone in history and not so attractive overly priced for a phone... Am I correct...

HTC will see real success when it stops with the stupid carrier exclusive agreements. If the One X came to T-Mobile I'd buy it, but with their stupid exclusivity agreement with AT&T I won't be able to get a One X till winter when it's already old. I gained my 2 year upgrade in April and I'm not going to wait 8 months to use it on a phone that was announced almost a year before. So I'll end up buying the GS3 when it comes out on T-Mobile. It's truly sad because I am a HTC fan, and here I am forced to buy a Samsung because HTC fails to offer a compelling phone on T-Mobile. I already have a Sensation 4G, so the One S isn't enough of a hardware upgrade to make me use my upgrade. If the One S had a 720p screen like the Rezound then I'd bite, but not with a qHD SAMOLED... Overall a failure to offer flagship level offerings will bite HTC in the behind.

That's very true, actually that'll be true for all manufacturers.

Yeahhh. Love you htc. Sgs2 was much better than sensation. So samsung beat the crap out of htc with better hardware. But now I think as sgs2 is lag free and can play every game smoothly. The more important aspect is software for phones better than sgs2 in terms of performance and hardware where htc rocks. Also the onex is only slightly beaten in hardware by sgs3. So way to go htc. Just advertise a lot.

I think the One series itself is putting them on the right track "phone-wise" that is. I haven't really felt any excitment for HTC until now since the Desire HD. I think the part for HTC is to offer the phones on all carriers, just like how SG2 was offered on multiple carriers. You can't offer a high end phone on one carrier, mid on one, and low on another. You're pretty much just screwing up your own sales. I could definitely see HTC's earnings/sales rise outside of the US, but within the US, not so much. I was seriously considering to get the One S yesterday at T-Mobile, then I changed my mind cause the rebate and discount I'd get without getting the phone is just way too lucrative. If they offered the One X, then I'd definitely get it with no second thoughts.

people are not gonna strip your phone and checkout the hardware, its the design of the phone and the sense UI which stands out, one x nails both these depts, and Sammy fanboys keep yelling about removable storage and SD card.

I think to stay in competition, the hardware is equally important, you can't have one without the other. The look of the phone is stunning, but if the hardware specs is close to the one S, I wouldn't pay too much attention to it. I would prefer a SD card to go along with One X's 32GB tho, it'd be a very nice addition, altho either way wouldn't affect my enthusiasm for the One X. Either way, with the One series, it's a great chance for HTC to make their comeback. Their sales should be pretty good outside of the US. They just need to make the right decisions within the US.
