HTC to eliminate parenthesis with HTC One M9, use "One Life" slogan for promos
posted by Alan F. / Feb 14, 2015, 11:20 AM
The second piece of news has already been confirmed by a tweet from HTC. When promoting the phone, HTC will use the slogan "One Life." Hours after this report was published, HTC sent out a promo for the phone which included the hashtag #OneLife. The manufacturer is asking you to draw one of three shapes, no doubt parts of the HTC One M9. There is a rounded corner, a dual flash cutout and one of the lines from the back of the phone. The one who recreates the design to HTC's desire might find it used at the media event on March 1st.
HTC has told us that they have beefed up social media for the HTC One M9, most likely to prevent the Samsung Galaxy S6 from stealing its thunder. Last year, the HTC One (M8) was one of the most hyped phones ever, prior to its unveiling. This year, the manufacturer has been more tight-lipped about its new flagship, going as far as having decoys made to fool the media. Assuming the rumors are right and HTC has eliminated the Duo camera on back, the camera can't be used as an excuse not to buy the phone.
Still, it all comes down to marketing which is an area where HTC has been weak. Sure, you can blame that if you want to on the company's early days when it was turning out devices for others. But it has been quite a few years since the Nexus One and the T-Mobile G1 rolled off the assembly line. HTC has been pushing its own models for years and needs to do better than having a B-list actor say "Blah, Blah, Blah," and call it marketing. The company has upped its game with its flagship phones (think of the progression from the HTC One X to the HTC One (M7), HTC One (M8) and now the HTC One M9) and now it needs to do the same with its ads.

Gary Oldman and Robert Downey Jr. are 2 of the MOST talented actors of their generation. Just watch Downey as "Chaplin" or Gary in ANYTHING he's done... "B" Lister, BAH!

Many so called B-list actors/actrices are very good, but you rarely see them in the main role of a blockbuster movie. Which usually is a requirement for A-list actors. A lot of B ones are a lot better actors than the ones on the A-list.

"M-any number" is just a poor naming scheme in general; they should honestly just drop it all together.

Like other companies dont use the "poor naming scheme", "S any number", "Z any number", "G any number", "Mi any number", "iPhone any number"...

I never claimed to have worked at HTC. *shrug* Even so starting their --HTC One-- phone line at "7"? Would you do that? Also do note that I never excluded other companies. I was merely pointing out the "M" is quite silly. Just because 6 people liked your post doesn't make me anymore wrong and you anymore right. Have a good one.

The "M" stands for Mark as in Mark 7 or the seventh version of something. It's not even close to being silly. Also do note that the HTC One m7 was in fact the 7th version in the One line of phones. Just because you don't know about the others doesn't mean they don't exist. The fact that you're a moron is what makes you more wrong.

Alan is easily the worst contributor on Phone Arena. It's not even close. B list? Really? The only thing B List is Alan. Or the carrier he loves bending over for, T-Mobile.
