HTC reports continued sales declines, One X underperforming

HTC, the Taiwanese manufacturer that seemed like it was doing everything right last year by posting up 6 consecutive months of record revenue in 2011, seems to have entered a bit of a funk...

I have had the one x for 10 days now and have been trying to come up with why i dont like it to convince myself to get the sg3 when it comes out on at&t. I upgraded from the captivate. So far all I can say is I love the phone. The only negative is that the battery barely makes it through a full day with heavy usage. But with normal usage it usually gets plugged up with around 40% battery life left.
Love it! Still not sure if I am going to switch to SG3 yet..

Honestly both the One X and the GS3 are Amazing phones, I don't see how you could unhappy with either one of them.

but One X doesn't have removable batter or the microsd card slot that's a huge turn down IMO

Agreed,not having expandable memory and replacable battery is a deterrent to one x sales. The Sony Xperia line has also suffered from this. Manufacturers should take not,people want their memory card slots not some cloud storage in cyberspace

Im in the same boat as you, except I picked up the EVO LTE, which has some extra goodies over the One X. Like you, I cant find anything wrong with the phone, its a beast with the S4 and the battery life has been great, with heavy use I get about 1.5 days, not bad. I really want to look at the SGS3 but I think I will keep the EVO, build quality on this thing is amazing, its built like a tank. Screen is also ridiculously nice and I havent experienced any of the multitasking issues some speak of. The camera is also impressive. The only thing keeping my eye on the SGS3 is the 2GB of RAM. Not sure what to do but I cant come up with an excuse to switch.

I agree 100%with you Isutigers,I brought this EVO LTE day one; the only problem with this phone is it is so nice and smooth, there is no need to rooted it, thus, I will give it to the gf and get SGS3 ( hopefully something is wrong so I can root and flash) ...lol

Marty, I also like the looks of the EVO LTE much better than the SGS3, the EVO looks manly and different from conventional design, the SGS3 looks like the SGS2 and other slab phones.

sense 2.1 was insanely fast. the thunderbolt is faster than the rezound maybe not in specs but visual performance it is due to sense 3.0+ are over crowded with extra crap thats looks cool and all but if the performance isnt there no one will want it. no dual core or quad core phone should glitch as much as htc do

It's expected, a lot of people were looking to get sgs3. I think its bad timing, and really stupid strategy for the US market.

i love my one x...i have no complaints just the phone w/o the beats headphones standard is a drawback somewhat and im not really impressed or overwhelmed with the sgs3 to want to switch.

Thanks, I made sure to stay away from any articles that were going to be flame wars because I'm getting really sick of that s**t. So I come in here, an article only about HTC, and I still get to see you guys in here. You trolls, & by that I mean any trolls, are harder to get rid of than herpes, and about as endearing.

If they were violating Apples patients, The phones wouldn't have eventually been released from customs. If you want to buy Apple products (with Samsung inside :) thats fine. But how can you be so weak minded, as to agree with everything Apple says ? Regardless of the facts. Even though I like Android, I don't automatically agree with everything they do or say.

HTC cleared the ITC, meaning that they did NOT violate the patent. If they did, the phones would not have left customs. Your argument is invalid.

That's what happens when these companies release 80 phones with s**tty support. Limit your selves to a couple great phones on each carrier and support them, and I'm sure you'd be in the green.

Agreed. HTC spent too much time flooding the market with too many phones, and that's coming back to haunt them with their inability to clear their older inventory.

The renewed focus on the One series wasn't a bad idea. It's the poor decisions they made earlier on that are killing them.

Hope HTC q3 revenue goes higher for the company to be profitable!.I have the one x and i have fallen in love with it and i do like the sense ui over other oem customization and the locked boot loader is the only negative point of HTC..:(

yea, I have a HTC One x (AT&T) , AND I thought it was great when I first got it...
The screen is really good. But now I find it sluggish, and not as snappy as say the Galaxy Nexus was. I have Nuked it twice and am about to do so again just to see if it is some app that is causing it to be slow switching between apps. Then I get the dreaded "LOADING" message, when getting done with a web browsing session... or doing other stuff on the phone. My Moto Atrix 2 didn't even do some of this stuff... and I AM Holding on to that phone still... If I could put a picture of the "Loading " screen shot I would...
If I was buying a phone now I would wait for the SGSiii... Sorry HTC.

You can blame both Qualcomm and HTC. About Qualcomm, its S4 SoC is f*cking RAM hunger and needs at least 1.5 GB Ram for working normally, but that is only 20% of the problem and the rest's belonged to HTC. Sense UI is so heavy, and HTC didn't think about increasing the RAM, so they have to set the force close function on 1X.

I'm sure if the S4 in your One X is "sluggish" then the S4 in the SG3 will probably feel the same after a while.

Can't sell phones if Apple is stopping your shipments, I just read the Apple has filled suit against Samsung for the Galaxy S 3 over the same Data Tapping patent the got HTC with AND the S-Voice saying its a copy of Siri. With Apple around, you can't have anything good.

oh yea, and that is not to mention that their web site support Forum for this phone started up and I was one of first posters to that site... Now the last week it is down... I click on my email feedback and it is barren, nothing even there. When you search for the HTC One x support forum on HTC's site is is blank... What!!!
Update, while I was writing this and since yesterday it has re-appeared... Now, I just checked 6/6/12 5 pm EST, and the support forum is back up for the HTC one x and it does not even have any of the original posts, bringing forth all the issues about the phone that users were trying to get help on... I think it is unbelevable that they can do that - start a support forum , then shut it down for a week, wipe all content from that particular forum and then put a brand new "Clean" forum back up... What!!!
That blows my mind...
Too bad the Samsung Galaxy Nexus battery was horrible...

Maybe they had a server failure, and lost the content. It happens.
