It’s HTC products which convinced me to try Android in the first place, starting with the Hero, then the Evo, then the Evo 4G LTE and now the HTC One. If not for them, I might have bought an iPhone instead. It bothers me that Samsung is dominating, considering they have no incentive to make a top notch phone.
Kudos to Samsung for managing to make the phone thinner, while fitting a larger battery and increasing the screen size, however, the phone is still disappointing because of their choice of materials and the laggy software. These are areas Samsung needs to spend more time on. I’m very happy with my HTC One.
