Who's going to be the next great Android manufacturer?

Since Samsung seems to have issues with hardware - plastic, GPS, and pentile. HTC now has shown they're committed to propagating their awful bloated skin and OS customizations that ruin the experience...

So who's left?

Sony? Eh..

LG? Maybe, but their releases and hardware is inconsistent.

I guess the only hope is Motorola stops locking things down since Google owns them and can release something decent.

But for now I'm losing faith in Android manufacturers who get -so close- but ruin it a bit in the end. The EVO LTE would be perfect without Sense. S3 would be perfect without pentile and less plastic. Everything's just sadly about compromise and I'd like to see manufacturers stop getting in the way of perfection.

Unfortunately companies have to cut costs somewhere. And since most of them are greedy as it is. Well you know, they are going to squeeze every little penny they can. Will the perfect phone ever come out. Doubt it. Seems like you will have to always choose whats important to you in a phone when purchasing one.

Companies are supposed to be greedy, if they weren't they would never grow, if they never grow they don't supply note jobs and hire more people, and their stock doesn't go up. Companies that aren't greedy fail.

Samsung does make plastic phones...so does LG, Motorola, Sony, HTC etc. People need to stop it with that one. The vast majority of phones out there are plastic. Also, all Samsung AMOLED screens have been pentile, and they were all very highly regarded. Pentile gets a bad name from crappy Motorola screens.

Well, Samsung has shown that it can do AMOLED without Pentile.. so we know they can make them better.

And to be honest, I'm just parroting most people's complaints about Samsung.. I had a Nexus S and I didn't like it for the storage size - I actually didn't mind the screen and plastic feel one bit.

As far as cutting costs go, the ironic thing is if HTC stopped destroying Android it would cost them significantly less in development, time, and resources. How many hours does it take them to make and test an OS upgrade? I'm going to guess hundreds more than if they just built next OS drivers with stock.

If HTC loves its ugly launcher so much, it should make it the default launcher, period. No need to bastardize the entire OS. The multitasking interface proves that they wasted countless hours making a change that didn't need to be made. Screen cards vs the standard way? Who cares? It was unnecessary and a waste. If you want to argue the People app or browser changes were needed, fine, but some of it is just frivolous.

Honestly I think Samsung is going to be the frontrunner for a quite a while due to the wide-spread distribution of the galaxy brand, and I'm sad to say that I don't really see HTC taking the top manufactorer spot again since they're just not as big of a company (though I want them to stick around !!!).

My best guess is honestly Asus. They're constantly pushing out fresh ideas and very nice hardware. Transormer and transformer prime were some of the best tablets of their time, and the Pad phone I think is a brilliant idea that could really catch on like crazy if advertised correctly. Plus with the rumors of the next Nexus device being an asus tablet, people could really start recognizing them more as a brand.

no phone is "perfect." it basically comes down to preference. but nobody will ever be 100% completely satisfied with their phone...
