Put out a better model after Samsung and right after the honeymoon, the blogosphere will still proclaim Samsung the winner and proceed to badmouth HTC.
In the past, htc has had a supplier consistency problem. I think that there were something like 8 Evo versions and 2 3vo versions. People get one of the off versions, hate it and thereafter think that HTC needs to change their designs, and never get the experience that those of us getting the mainline version got.
They design well, but Google and Apple are teaching them to build in a little bit of customer dissatisfaction to drive the next model.
Anyway, I submit that whatever the SGS4 will be, if you take two, change the logo on one to HTC and send both out to the professional reviewers out there, they'll declare the Sammy the clear winner.
Lol sorry I guess I got off on a rant!
Rant or not, it's the unfortunate truth of the situation regarding HTC's current standings as far as public image goes. I would be an extremely happy camper if I had a 1.12 hboot EVO LTE, but I don't. I decided that waiting may be more beneficial in the long run. So far, that theory hasn't been proven (until I find out for certain if a Nexus device will come to Sprint).
I talk to corporate like a BAWSS!
