    Default is HTC committing corporate suicide with the new HTC One?

    is HTC committing corporate suicide with the new HTC One?

    Have they not learned anything from the last year or two of financial downward spiral?

    I don't think so? As of this instant the HTC One is the best Android phone on the market. Why would it lead to a financial spiral? So long as the marketing is there, they will sell. Samsung's phones aren't superior to HTC's, but their marketing skills are.

    With the phone itself, hell no. The only way they could be committing suicide is if they fail to advertise it enough like they did with their 2012 devices.

    It's hard to have a discussion when you don't provide reasons why you feel this way.

    Yeah. You need to define the problem first.

    So do you see something specifically wrong with the One or are you just another hater who vaguely proclaims the failure of a phone that hasn't even been released yet?

    Conclusions. Let's all jump to them.

    As an aside: my gauge will be how many of my family and friends know about the HTC One before they ask me - i.e. if they ask "Should I get the HTC One?" vs. "What phone should I get?"

    Still waiting for OP to come back and make an actual point. Without that, this thread has nowhere to go but down.

    I personally hate the new home screen "blinkfeed" thing. If anything this will be the factor that will be debatable. Cant say anything about the battery yet except it better be good.

    AFAIK, that stupid blink will be able to be turned off, which is a good thing since I also don't like it. However, as we keep saying, we are not average cell phone buyers. I'm curious how regular folks will respond to it.

    Cannot really reply to the OP, since they weren't specific about what parts of the One are possible suicide triggers, but I do think well done heavy advertising is a necessary component of avoiding suicide.

    It will be very debatable...actually, BlinkFeed is one of the things I like most about the new Sense!

    The smartest thing they did was still having your normal pages and adding blink feed! Best of both worlds!

    Battery should be good. I'd heard that the Droid DNA has pretty good battery life, and that's with a 5-inch screen and 2020 mAh battery. The One has a 4.7-inch screen and 2300 mAh battery. Although screen and battery charge aren't the only factors.

    Then you don't have to use it.

    I'm curious, too. I think for folks like my mom, they'll set up Facebook on it and go to town.

    If you don't want to use it, all you have to do is swipe over one screen and you've got the standard home screen.

    People are going to start complaining about inconvenience and how they shouldn't have to swipe.

    Well unless it really can be turned off, its still gonna be there, though I just realized there are 3rd party launchers so I guess that solves the problem. I gotta say that this is the best looking phone I have seen... too bad I'm on verizon

    You can change your default home screen to one of the regular ones.

    I don't understand why people complain so much..

    You wanted a great quality build? HTC did just that with a full aluminum body.
    You wanted more storage? HTC didnt even include a 16GB model, staright to 32 and 64.
    You wanted a bigger battery? HTC did just that.
    You hated the current sense? HTC change it up some. Like it or hate it, they listened. You will never get stock.

    But it doesn't have wireless/inductive charging!

    But there's no expandable memory slot!

    But I can't replace the battery!

    But it's not stock Android!

    lol

    So this thread was nothing but flame bait? Thanks for at least confirming that.
