    Default Anyone nervous about HTC?

    Anyone nervous about HTC's recent financial issues and how they might affect support for the EVO LTE going forward?

    I must admit that I am a little bit, and that has me looking at other phones right now. There seem to be enough questions about upcoming updates (JB, fix LTE (if needed), etc.), that I wonder if HTC's financial situation will mean resources will be less available to make fixes and updates less frequent moving forward.

    No they need to right the ship, but they are not going anywhere in the next year. I can see a real strong Q1 for them next year

    What are HTC's financial issues?

    Are they losing money?

    Are they losing money or just not making as much as they used to?

    So answer is: they're not making as much as they used to.

    They're still making money though.

    Yeah they are but i do not think they want to take Huewai's spot on the ladder when you think of smartphones.

    If all their phones are as screwy as my EVO LTE it's no darn wonder they are losing money.
    I had the original EVO and loved it....the LTE phone is barely more than a paper weight at this point.

    I think that htc will do just fine and I also think that everyone who has a really bad case of doom and gloom should think about this like this without htc we would be either having palm or windows or icrap only so I think the best thing for them to do is keep their focus on their phones

    Same here. I'm fairly close to leaving Sprint and never buying another non-Nexus/HTC ever again.

    The fix to their problem is simple, make your best phone and bring it out on Verizon first. They have the most customers and therefore the most buying potential. But the best solution would be a double release each year. A phone that's a major step forward each spring, say the last Friday in April. Make that a staple every year so people get used to it. Then say the last Friday of October every year a small update to that phone. Say taking the CPU from 1.2 to 1.5GHz and new OS but that's it. No camera or chip upgrades, just a simple update/upgrade. Make these staples so people get used to them and they can plan on the next big thing, plus every 6 months you have arguably the best phone on the market, that in itself is marketing

    I love this phone! Some people are just never happy. HTC is a great company but they are still launching and planning on launching many new high end phones.
    If u get a replacement and it still sucks chances are its the service where you live or just a case of a customer who is never happy. These threads freaking out about HTC and or evo 4g lte bashing about how it's a paper weight are absured. Most complaints are people that bought the phone and aren't even in a 4G area and should of stayed with the OG evo till 4G launched. Smh

    HTC's sales are down, but they are still turning a profit. There not going anywhere. Like management has said they are going to concentrate their efforts in other markets.

    That being said, as much as I've loved my OG EVO and my current EVO LTE, they're just taking way to long to upgrade. Plus with less interest in the brand in general (state side)it seems the development community isn't really behind the devices either. My next device sadly with either be a Nexus or possibly Samsung.

    My HTC is working wonderfully. Maybe you got one from a bad batch.

    Making less profit is not losing money. HTC is not going anywhere. I am a bit miffed at how long it is taking to get updates. The flagship phones should be getting JB by now or very soon. Not having a release date is killing me.

    HTC should be worried about Google's Nexus devices and Amazon's Kindle Fire devices.

    I'm not too worried. They just need to beef up their marketing. Everyone knows GS3 and iPhone because those are the two phones we see on tv and in ads frequently. HTC makes quality phones, they just dont market them as strong. Put resources into that and I'm sure they would see a profit.

    I plan on giving the LG Optimus G a run though. That phone looks pretty sweet. No issues with HTC. I love my EVO 4G LTE. I'm just interested in what LG has to offer.
