    Default HTC Mobile Phones

    I have heard of and seen some HTC mobile phones, but never taken them into consideration when thinking of purchasing a new phone. I know of three people who have an HTC phone, so im thinking they must be an ok phone if people have brought them.

    Like other phones such as iphone, samsung note and nokia lumia I know they have a good brand name and features are known to everyone, well the main features. But with HTC phones not much is known.

    Has anyone used a HTC phone?

    What makes the phone known to people, any special qualities of the phones or brand?

    Where are HTC phones made and why are they not so big in the mobile market like other branded phones?

    With some of my friends owning a HTC smartphone, my first impression was that of a device with a premium feel, right from its build quality, form factor, camera, multimedia functions, UI.
    But don' t expect a budget hardware from HTC, also it lacks variety in terms of different smartphone models.

    So its in the high end of phones then. I agree with the number of models, they dont have much variety, but then out of the models they have got, they must be all good with their own specs and features.

    My brother has purchased HTC One recently in the US. He told me that it's a good one. It is available in India for Rs. 40 K. The processor (1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Quad Core Processor) is one of the best I've seen yet.

    The HTC One not a bad phone at all, im really impressed, it actually makes the other phones look quite down market. The phone definitly has that premium look, its sleek yet has very good specs and I think it looks more of the professional kind of phones, I mean you wouldnt see any tom, dick or harry with this phone.

    40K for the HTC one phone, quite costly. I think even iphones are cheaper now.

    Why is it that HTC dont really advertise their phones like Apple or Samsung do?

    Its a classy phone and I think only high end customer would buy such phones. I think it has more of a business phone touch to it. If wanting to compare I think a near enough likelyhood of the type of phone it is would be with the blackberry range. Although blackberry is not so much hype as it used to be.

    40k for a mobile phone is just way too much. I wont spend that much on my next phone and I am going to use the current phone for another year atleast.

    I had my eye on HTC one X for a long time, it was launched in india priced over 40k, then came the newer HTC one X plus, even better but that too was like 45k.So was out of question to get one.Had no hopes of getting them so i targeted the lg Google nexus but it never came to India,on time.

    Apple sounded very uninteresting, Sony doesn't have IPS display,LG phones didn't have 1280X720 res (at that time,not in india),Hate amoled,so samsung was out of question.Blackberry-really!!

    So was stuck with my nokia 1100 for 6-7 months more (9 years to be exact).

    Then came a surprise , HTC price cut for One X and Plus model.great.All my specs matched and priced at below 30k.Waited for 3 months more,read reviews and countless unboxing,repair videos.lots of shootouts and problem threads and i made the final decision. went to a The mobile Store in janakpuri west district centre after taking early leave from work ,Now am a proud owner of a black HTC one X Plus 64 GB model.

    I was a flagship and the best 2012 model,before One came out.rubberized Polycarbonate body works for me ,aluminum are never that good at preventing scratches.1.7 Ghz and 4 cores, 1 Gig ram and a dedicated GPU, puts all my colleagues phones to shame (1 has iphone 5 priced 52 k).Plays all format video, i mean really all format, X264, Flv, do i need to say more.720p display,good enough for most of my downloaded TV series and some 16:9 and some 1.85 ratio movies (cropping 2.35 is as good as not watching at all).
    Am on airtel network and easily touch 4.5 Mbps most of the time (plans are bit pricy though) on this 21 Mbps hsdpa model.
    Camera's great, BSI cmos works for me,puts my old sony cyber shot ccd to shame.
    Only downside is battery life,Who cares, i don't,does the job and still leaves 10 % to come back home and charge.

    Some one said HTC don't promote their phone, am glad they don't, so i can belong to and remain in an exclusive owners club of this gem of a smartphone.

    Ha, Have been abusing my HTC one X+ for a month now,no trouble seems to come up in terms of performance, ease of usage, interface, internet browsing and multimedia.There is one design shortcoming which has been addressed by many all over the world that is the camera lens pokes out a bit which tends to touch when placed on level surface leading to scratches.solution was to put a good transparent tape ,no optical performance loss.Other than that the common point which all users of this phone agrees over is the battery life and it is lower compared to other phones of similar specs, people say it's because of the HTC sense user interface but am yet to get a satisfactory proof of it from those who have rooted and run custom rom.In my case the main culprit seems to be the hspa radio hogging almost 35% of battery usage, or maybe am in a locality with multiple tower conflicts for 3g signal, which i have noticed is constantly over 3 Mbps down,which is really good.

    1 thing i really hate( i mean it) is the use of micro sim, though mine was cut to retain the outer portion intact so anytime i can use it as a normal sim by cellotaping it.
    Am really not sure of how to replace battery in case it gets burnt out ,it surely will-may be some years down the line, have seen many videos of it on youtube and it is one hell of a MESSY JOB.

    cheers

    If you do ever need to replace the battery, I think it would be best to take it to a reputed repair shop or send it to HTC.

    @Preeti_20 HTC has evolved now since 2013, and I have known people who have been using it since 2010. I need to get a new phone, I don't know which phone to get, my options are wide open, so is getting a HTC a superb choice and if so, which would you recommend to me?

    HTC is very famous around the world. Unfortunately, HTC finished its operations in my country.

    What is your country? Why did HTC stop, did something happen?

    HTC mobile phones are now taking over the market from the other leading mobile phone brands like Samsung, Sony and Nokia. The features they are providing, are more advanced and better in every way than these veteran brands. Being new in the market, they are tempting the buyers with the latest features and updates. The buyers are obviously getting carried away. This has led to a drastic fall in the sales of the other leading brands.

    I have never used HTC phones, however, I think HTC phones have sleek design and cool interface. I have heard the HTC phones battery last long compared to other brands.
