I will tell you what's in the HTC's pipeline...

Problem is, Samsung makes a great phone too, and they have the marketing and brand name to back them up. HTC needs to put some commercials on TV showing their highlight videos.

I've heard as much criticism about Samsung's touchwiz as HTC's Sense. I don't get it though, because you can replace either of those with another launcher. Apex and Go launchers are free and work great.

This makes me sad, as Samsung v HTC is almost like iPhone vs Android back in the day. The One is a better product. :(

Damn you humanity!

I personally dont like the design of the One, but I like the OS and the aluminum body.
