    Samsung doesn't know how to give people what they want. They know how to make people want what they're selling, just like Apple. Unfortunately HTC hasn't figured that part out yet.
    according to you what hasn't Samsung giving you to say that? A free phone? A phone that cooks for you?

    I wish HTC world beat or at least get close to the sales are the S3 but let's be honest, not going to happen.

    I LOVE the fact they went full aluminum and skipped the 16GB crap. It really is a beautiful phone. I will be buying one and then I will see what the X phone is about.

    Oh and front speakers! Damn it why hasn't anyone else done this yet. These are the little things HTC paid attention to detail with, I hope the phone is a huge success.
    As HTC's operations have always remained profitable, albeit by a really slim margin at this point, I don't think they need to actually beat Samsung at this juncture, but gain some significant ground back - and I think they will.

    I think this will change and goes along with the One World Phone model. One phone for the whole world, not different variations for different carries or different territories with difference screen sizes and millions of variables to consider when delivering an update. I'm not sure if the One X ever received the update, or if any HTC phone that launched in North America last year even received it yet besides the DNA that launched with it, but I think this will change this year since now they only have one phone to update. I anticipate fast updates like the S3 was with Jelly Bean.

    Also, the One ships with Jelly Bean anyway so thats a plus at least. Sure its not 4.2, but I dont for the life of me know any key features in 4.2 that non-nexus users are missing anyway. Photosphere? Lock screen widgets? Meh, good features to have but nothing groundbreaking like Google Now was for 4.1. I hope OEMs skip 4.2 and just wait for 5.0 to roll out and just focus on that.

    You do realize that every One X has jelly bean except the AT&T version? That's means AT&T is the one holding things up, too.

    It will happen. Now that they are using the One Phone, Multiple Carriers model and focus all their attention on this, I think they will succeed. People will see a beautiful and functional phone, and be able to actually go to their carriers and buy it (unless they're on Verizon). Availability is key. You can't make a great phone and then only sell it to one carrier and segment your buyers. Thats just bad business and I do not for the life of me understand why HTC did this. I thought for sure the One X would be on all carries and they disappointed me with that. Stuck to my S2 on Tmo and got the Nexus 4 last Christmas. Still love my N4 and will use it for the future but I like HTC despite ugly Sense because the phone is nice looking and they have great cameras.
    If they can back it up with a great marketing campaign, HTC will be able to make some noise.

    I doubt they'd catch Samsung though, at least in this year.

    Exactly my thought, HTC definitely will do a lot better since they have taken a step on the right direction with making one model phone for every carrier, it is in my opinion THE best looking phone ever made, BUT, BUT, they need to learn from Samsung, Samsung just know how to give people what they want, removable battery, sd card even if you dont want to use it it is there and it doesn't hurt to have it, i rather have it some people complain about it, but HTC will be a big player this year.

    Samsung doesn't know how to give people what they want. They know how to make people want what they're selling, just like Apple. Unfortunately HTC hasn't figured that part out yet.
    Spot on. The general buying public doesn't care as much about removable battery and SD card as people on this site do.

    It ain't happening.

    Samsung has too many advantages over the one already and the gs4 won't be able to compete.

    Sbeam, swipe for screen shots, pop up video player, voice control for apps, microsd card, replaceable battery, all things the one already has fallen short on against the galaxy S III and the 4 isn't even here yet!

    Gonna pretend you didn't say SD card and removable battery because its subjective whether that's an advantage or not, and the avg consumer doesn't care about it as stated numerous times. Swipe for screenshots is a neat feature, but hardly a deal breaker. Sbeam? Android beam is already a standard on most android phones and with 4.1 its uses have grown. Pop up video is cool tho. But we still don't know what extra features comes packed with the One yet so I'd hold off on saying Samsung wins still.

    I would love to share you're optimison, but after last year, I'm not sure. I mean other than a removable battery and sd card, the One X was by far the better phone and yet struggled mightily. I have no doubt that the S4 will keep the crappy Samsung tradition, it will have a worse screen, worse build quality, worse design, and touchwiz yet will be the second most popular phone around.
    "No! The S4 will outsell it becuz it has and SD slot and remuvuble battry!!!1!"
    This is exactly how it will pan out. Sadly this is how it is in the western world's entire consumer culture.

    -Terrible quality food that appeals to the lowest common denominator? There you go, McDonald's holding the title strong at #1 for decades

    -Cheap quality shopping experience that appeals to the lowest common denominator? Yea! Catapult that Walmart straight to the top baby!

    -Top two selling phones on the market? Well let's see we have one company who hasn't substantially improved their device beyond tiny increments for years, and another who encase theirs in cheaper material than anyone else, are no better in any other respect. Let's make those #1 and #2!

    This my friends is why our market just sucks in general. We propel mediocre products to the top and all that does is encourage other companies to be equally mediocre.

    I honestly hope this helps HTC. I don't need them to dethrone Samsung or Apple, I just want them to have decent growth. I always loved the materials and feel of their phones. They feel solid in hand and look fantastic in my opinion. Mostly though, I want them to do well to keep spurring competition! Consumers win when the competition is good.

    But wait a second. Please don't act like the iPhone is such a horrible device. The Galaxy S III isn't horrible either.

    I want HTC to Destroy with this phone and business model. I love HTC and the way they make solid phones no plastic crap.
    I know this is EXTREMELY difficult for a lot of people to understand, but try to stick with me here for a sec.......Plastic does not always equal "crap". I know it FEELS cheap, but it isn't always the case. The S3 kicks the shiz out of almost every single HTC phone ever made, and it's plastic. The HTC ONE will be freaking awesome, and the One X+ was on the same plane as the S3. There's no way that 40 million people would not only buy, but love their phone if it was a cheap piece of trash.

    Everyone's favorite pasttime is to dog on Samsung, but it's tough for you to get a decent analysis of their product when you are lightyears behind. They have a lot of weaknesses and problems, but their flagship devices are almost never one of them. Glock uses polymer to make their guns. Everyone called it the "plastic gun" when it came out, and now the majority of worldwide law enforcement and military officials carry Glock. It is trusted, dependable, and it is quality. Nothing to shake a fist at. Don't fall into the same trap of assuming all "plastic" is "crap".

    For what it's worth, the EVO 4G LTE got JB in the second week of December. T-mobile and AT&T are to blame for the lack of JB on the One S and One X. If the One significantly increases market share for HTC, maybe those carriers will improve their HTC update record.

    I'll be hypocritical. I didn't care for build quality too much. Watching HTC and Sony engineers describe the design process they used, made me appreciate the attention to detail. Construction using poorly engineered materials is a sin in my eyes. For example, I view the S3 as being a device created using a low-cost manufacturing process. I think corners were cut in order to achieve a look without having the substance to confirm it. The hyper-glaze coating used to protect the faux metal trim and faux texture seems to be a lower level of design effort compared to the Nexus 4 and Xperia Z. Likewise for the construction of the removable back cover. I find that to be lacking in rigidity, but I don't think that's avoidable. Having a 1-piece design that size needs to be able to endure repeated drops and removal.

    The only first hand comparison of good/bad construction I can think of, is between the ASUS Transformer Infinity and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. After handling those two devices, I concluded that both the construction and materials of the Note 10.1 are very poor compared to the Transformer Infinity.

    In spite of my closed-minded ignorance, I don't use the construction of a device as the only metric to gauge how good/bad something is. If I consider a device as "cheap", it's just an observation of one aspect and not an overall generalization. That's just me. With that said, it looks like the HTC One is currently the best engineered Android device at the moment.
