Attacking the competition has become a common feature seen in the national prime time television commercials promoting a smartphone manufacturer or a specific platform, Samsung started this back with its ads for the Samsung Galaxy S II that featured Apple iPhone owners waiting on line to buy the next version of the phone...

Show Blinkfeed but whats the point of bashing other phone??
Secondly blinkfeed is useless, it's like an app being used as a widget...and if you really want to see everything in 1 place, see BBOS 10....blackberry making ads regarding all in one place makes sense but HTC...not at all

Well said bro. It's funny how much of a follower dude is, he has to constantly remind his fellow fanboys that he hates all things apple, so he gets to stay in the club. And yes iPhone nothing but dirt... What was that even for lol.

im bored of the constant bs from these kind of people. they claim to hate apple yet cant wait to comment on the apple articles

the thumbs have lost meaning on here, if i said androids the best boom loads of green but if i dare say samsung needs a redesign or android is for everyone loads of red lol

whats real funny is how that piece of dirt iphone is responsible for pushing smartphones to where they are now plus it still can compete with the android offering depending what you want or like

something android fanboys have forgotten, people have difference preferences

Excellent post truthful, and thought out. Inspectorgadget80 please take notice to this. The childlike apple bashes have gotten tired, and don't accomplish anything. Those who like iPhones will still like them after reading your dissed, those who don't like iPhones don't actually need you to remind them not to like them. Point being...hit air is hot air

Wow, there is ppl on here with some sense after all. I applaud you sir for your non-biased, non-egotistical, and common sense comment. You hit the nail on the head when you say ppl have different preferences. Unfortunately there are so many on this site that cannot fathom that or understand it. I myself enjoy my iPhone 5 because it suits my needs and preferences, but i still think Android is an excellent OS, and im also interested in a Nokia Lumia 920. I enjoy reading about and trying out all the different platforms, as i just enjoy smartphones period, but my daily driver is an iPhone 5. I have no qualms with anyone that doesnt like Apple or the iPhone, their choice, but they dont have to constantly bash my choice, and that goes vice versa as well. Everyone needs to GROW up and understand everyone has an opinion and preference.

Ok, but my note 2 is bigger than the HTC One so now what? Also don't be a liar dude, you didn't say that remark out of a sense of humor...c'mon man keep it real. Everyone on this site knows you're a notorious iPhone hater, that loves attention...21 green thumbs mission accomplished.

With voice search such as Google Now, Siri, and S Voice, neither of these commercials are on target. I don't know of anyone that "digs" for information like they are trying to demonstrate here.

Blinkfeed is a copy of flipboard.

True. I didn't use it on mine, but different strokes, and all that. At least they let you change your primary homescreen and shove on down the line.

No offence to One Fans, but isn't Blinkfeed just Flipboard stuck to the home launcher (minus the local stuff like stored camera pics and stuff)?

Nice ad :D As for Blinkfeed, its a bit of a mixed bag for me. I have tried it and it looks nice. In a way it is a flipboard, but I like the UI and the sliding animation. The only problem with Blinkfeed is that it's always there, meaning you can't get rid of it. It won't be a problem for some people that like using it, but other users who don't like it will be stuck with it.I think a better decision for HTC is to make Blinkfeed a widget so that people can add or remove it if they choose to.
