    I bet their latest batch of smartphones will be best sellers. They have the best price/performance/design ratio in my opinion (fanboy). Reply

    Price/performance is the best in Nexus 4, by far. Try to find other 4 core/1.5GHz/2GB mem 16 GB flash unlocked for $350. Not to mention you can use this unlocked phone on T-Mobile value plans which (for 3 phones) cost 2-3 times less than competing AT&T and Verizon smartphone plans.
    And Nexus is the only Android phone which will be updated until it can run new versions and you know it. The HTC One is not even out yet and already comes with 8 months old version of Android (4.1) and will be updated at best once, with delay of at least half a year behind Android release (or more), while Nexus phones already run 4.2.1 and start to upgrade to 4.2.2.

    haha!

    i was an N900 user too until i got the N9.

    a ubuntu phone using edge-swipe multitasking and built with Qt on a premium HTC handset would be amazing.

    Unless it's just a coincidence, it might be an Ubuntu tablet.

    HTC has pumped out a couple of amazing phones in the past year (One X(+) and One S) with all the right ingredients but they failed in front of the samsung marketing machine.

    Galaxy s4 is a couple of months away. I hope HTC can gain traction with the HTC One and be the leader for this round. And the phone has absolutely no -ve points from where i'm looking (4.7 inches is still too big for me, so a "smaller" screen is not a -ve mark). And quite frankly, I'm starting to get snnoyed by Samsung's lack of innovation in the design department.

    The pictures are fairly blurry, not using a decent camera then? Reply

    "The Ultra Pixel Camera: 300% more light than traditional sensors. " is a total BS. It is still 1/3" sensor getting as much light as any other 1/3" sensor would behind the same lens. Of course f/2.0 lens is not bad at all, but not that different from what other top phones offer, not even close to Nokia 808.

    4mpix is all that is needed though (and can be resolved on a sensor this small due to diffraction), and I applaud them for not participating in the fools' megapixel race. Low megapixel count has real advantages of fast transfers, fast processing and low power consumption. Smaller pixels on 8-13 mpix cameras with 1/3" sensors don't carry any useful information, just noise and blur.
