For me there is really no difference between getting the phone in April or May because I am getting it no matter what but am completely happy with my LTEvo in the meantime. This delay really does hurt HTC though because they are losing a ton of people who are on the fence between the One and the SG4. I will gladly wait till May for a premium product.

Yea I was reading earlier today about the parts manufacturers not holding HTC in as high standards as in the past. Interesting to say the least. I mean didn't they think about these obstacles before going with an ultra pixel camera and not a traditional mega pixel camera?

I agree on the wait time frame, and it not being a good thing for HTC. As for me though, even though I'd like to run out and buy it right now, I honestly have all the time in the world, my nexus 4 is prepaid through T-mo and I have an upgrade for at&t just chillin waiting to get used...But I would of course rather have it sooner then later : )
