HTC's Jeff Gordon: the iPhone is "terribly boring"
Earlier this week, Apple reported record-breaking revenues, thanks to the fact that it sold an astonishing 74.5 million iPhones between October and December 2014 (with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus obviously being the stars here). Jeff Gordon, HTC's Senior Global Online Communications Manager, used this occasion to congratulate Apple via Twitter, while at the same time mentioning that he finds the iPhone "terribly boring."

According to Gordon, Apple's handset is "a boring, easy choice." He continued by saying he wants "a phone that's more unique, more personal, more stunning when I take it out of my pocket" - likely suggesting that a device like the HTC One (M8) perfectly fits that description.

Last month, Jeff Gordon said that HTC's 2015 roadmap would be its best ever, including some "huge surprises." Well, we're impatiently waiting to see if these surprises will blow us away or not. We know that the HTC One (M9), aka Hima, might not look too different from the One (M8), so perhaps the surprises are related to other products (or aren't exactly about design). We'll just have to wait and see.

Back to the iPhone, do you agree with Jeff Gordon's statement about it?
