They had their hardware and software issues but I bet if more people actually bought the original Galaxy they would never have been so eager about the S2.

    Now Samsung is a big company and have made the Galaxy line top of the line. However, HTC is no slouch, they had a rough year in 2011 but the One series/EvoLte are GREAT phones. Just as good as any premium phone on the market and the most superior screen on any device atm. They always innovate with new ideas through Sense while listening to the customer by lightening Sense at the same time. Now the One X+ looks to be the phone to revive the original Android maker. Long live HTC, loved my OG EVO and love my LTE.

    As for the Original Galaxy S. Everyone knew they had performance issues on those phones because even at the Samsung launch event the phone was obvious laggy and stuttered. However, back then a laggy Android phone was the norm, since a lot of devices were mid-range and had bad performance, anyways... The Galaxy S was truly bad, but HTC didn't really give people a choice, anyways... The GPS issues were also well-known after the Int'l launch.

    Few other Android devices were shipping with as much built-in storage as the Galaxy S devices.
    The screen on those devices back then truly was revolutionary.
    The GPU in those devices outperformed almost everything on the market at that time, the CPU was no slouch.
    They were easy to MOD.
    They had sound on par with an iPod.
    The user interface was designed to mimic an iPhone, which made it popular with people who either weren't on AT&T or couldn't afford an iPhone. Verizon didn't have the iPhone yet.
    Software Conveniences like DLNA weren't well-distributed across OEMs yet. Only Samsung and Motorola had decent DLNA clients, and Motorola didn't have high end devices on any carrier except Verizon (this was well before the Atrix 4G).

    Now to carriers...

    The Captivate was AT&T's first high end Android device. There was no choice in what to buy if you wanted high end Android on that carrier.
    The Epic 4G launched right after the Evo, with factorably more internal space, a way better screen, and other niceties.
    T-Mobile didn't have any other high end Android devices on their network. In fact the only device with specs even comparable to the Vibrant - in theory - on their network was the HTC HD2 and no one was buying Windows Mobile devices except geeks to hack it. The HD2 had tons of QA/QC issues as well, which didn't help HTC. The G2 wasn't out yet (with its own host of issues) and nor was the MT4G, BB7 devices, or any Windows phones. The Vibrant stood on its own there, and dominated everything displayed in T-Mobile stores, easily.
    Verizon didn't get theirs until quite a while later and anyone who bought that phone knowing the issues the other devices can't complain about it.

    The reason why Samsung dominates HTC this way is because on sites like XDA and AC people value specs over user experience. A bunch of people peddled the Samsung devices and stated they were fine just install a custom ROM. As long as the general idea is that "you can always switch the software, just worry about the hardware" Samsung will continue to dominate them because an integrated (and far richer) company like Samsung is able to differentiate themselves on that level much better than a company like HTC (which made a name for itself mostly for their Software customizations on top of other OSes like Windows Mobile).

    People will care for the One X+ about as much as they cared about the One X, which is... Not nearly as much as they care about what Samsung's answer to the One X+ will be. It's the circle of iLife (excuse the pun).

    Note a response but maybe a way to shut down HTC 5 inch phone. I'm going note 2 for the pen and big screen something I don't think the 5 inch HTC will do.

    The pen is the only thing it won't do. Everything else should be better (display quality, internals, camera).

    I gotta say for me it is about specs mostly.

    One. I'm never stock so unlockable bootloader is a must as is the ability to root.

    Two. Software can be changed so why not buy a phone with decent specs for the time and run it like a madman.

    Gotta remember bootloaders and make sure there is an unlock method and rooting for other oem's making Sammy a clear cut winner to most of the dev community as far as root freindly.

    I think HTC is awesome. I had a one x,and switched to a galaxy s3 cause I thought it would be better then the one x. And in MY extent,its not that great. I switched back to my one x after 4 weeks with the s3. HTC did things right with the one x. I don't care if they are making other better phones,I'm keeping my one x for a bit.

    This is probably a late reply. I have had two HTC phones in a row. HTC hero & then the Inspire. HTC hero was kind of a landmark phone and I enjoyed my Inspire but my gosh, what a battery hog. I kept two extra batteries and quite often, had to use them or keep the phone on a charger. I think the sense OS is a real battery hog and tends to slow their phones down too. It just draws too much on system resources. And the nonremovable battery was definitely a deal breaker for me. I just got the galaxy S3 and right now at around noon, its still at 87%. (I'm not a heavy user particularly when I'm at work) With the same amount of use, my Inspire would be ayt 50% and a lot of times, way below 50% and I'd end up putting it on the charger to get through the rest of the day. That's my opinion.

    Never too late friend,but I agree. My one x doesn't last me very long. The one thing I did like of the Gs3 was the battery,I got 16hrs outta it. I get about 7 out of my one x. Unplugged at 6 and at 1 my battery is dying. With the s3 I had about 70-80% left at 3.

    I'm still routinely getting 18 hours.

    Since you say you are not a heavy user, maybe you should find and disabled some of the bloatware on the HOX that is using the battery and radios.

    I had the same problem with battery drain when listening to music. The problem for me turned out to be the media server or service process that was running. This kept the phone in the stay awake state, thus the unusual battery drain.

    I had the HTC One X but didn't like it because of no menu button, no SD card slot also you couldn't remove the backing so therefore didn't have access to the battery. Some people will say that those are minor issues but to me this was enough to exchange it for another phone. Now I have an HTC Vivid and love it.
