I am a huge fan of HTC. My first phone ever was a HTC Hero, then I upgraded to an HTC Evo, which was the first of the 4.3 inch smartphones. Then Samsung came along and took over the market in a couple of months. I personally feel that HTC smartphones have a better build quality than Samsung phones. It was not a a surprise for me though that HTC has posted a loss. The reason for that is because of the materialist society that is present not only in America but in other parts of the world as well. Smartphone sales are not only made in America. Why do you guys think is the better manufacturer?
