HTC's Jeff Gordon: "We will continue doing what we do best, regardless of the Galaxy S5" (interview)

At MWC 2014, we took the opportunity to interview Jeff Gordon, Senior Global Online Communications Manager at HTC, who shared with us some interesting details regarding the company's experience with the HTC One and the customer feedback that it has received since the smartphone's debut. Also, we did not miss the chance to mention the recently announced Galaxy S5 during the conversation and to get a clearer picture as to what makes the HTC Desire 816 a "flagship mid-range". Do we have your attention already? Then just hit that "play" button and enjoy the interview.

If you're reading this Jeff please don't make your phones waterproof (hate the flaps) and please no more fingerprint readers. Otherwise just keep doing what you're doing and you will have my money this year.

Oh yes and a dedicated camera button would be the icing on the cake

LOL true, but he might just be nervous. I would suggest he put down the iPad/tablet and relax his arms a bit.

Jeff seems like a very knowledgable respectful manager, good for him. The HTC One is magnificent and I can't wait for the sequel. The only issue I had with my HTC One (stated this before) was how it got hot so quickly in my hands, and I don't think it was an issue with that particular device, I think it's the aluminium body. My hands just tend to get really warm and in 5-10 minutes, the temperature of my One was around 105F. Aside from that, best phone I have ever felt and used. I'm definitely going to give it a try again if G3 doesn't steal the cake.

So they are going to continue what they do best? Sucking and dropping the ball? Maybe they should not continue to do that.

Main problems for me with the One was the device heating up, and the lowest volume being too high (serious).

Mimicking others is what HTC does best.

the only reason i did not get the one was the lcd after a led its really hard to go back also the boom sound was not as loud as i wanted it i played the man of steel trailer on my gs3 and htc one side by side and the sound was about the same but biggest problem i think the world did not like was the no sd card. and att locked down deal for the 32 gig so you could only get 16 on other carriers.
