Yes, this formula made the One X super popular and it got lots of sales.

Oh no wait, that was the SGS3. Which had a removable battery and SD Card slot.

But but but... I don't acknowledge Samsung phones cause I'm on OCN and we don't like things without aluminium unibody shells here... Just don't mention that in an apple thread. rolleyes.gif

Congrats, except that has nothing to do with their success and I hope that's not what others believe too. AbdullahG got it right. They marketed their phones a ton and took advantage of the legal battles with Apple to gain even more exposure. All the court cases were turned into advertising opportunities which is brilliant. Further more, they didn't have a bunch of exclusives that followed no formula or design language. HTC and Motorola were doing this where each carrier got their own special phone along with a saturated product lineup. Without a definite flagship across all carriers, like Apple, it didn't hold the attention of the average consumer.

Samsung on the other hand released the same Galaxy phones across all carriers. Everyone could get their hands on the S3 along with the Note 2 and without anything creating confusion being thrown into the mix (like the original Galaxy S phones, where each carrier had their own version of the same phone).

That's the point of the HTC One, they're emulating Samsungs business model which is having one flagship across all carriers and it's honestly something all the companies need to do if they want to stand a chance in the market. Smarter branding, less confusion, and good marketing gets you sales. Not throwing a bunch of features at the wall and hoping they stick.

(Seriously guys, if you want easy information on this go read all the case studies on companies like Samsung, HTC, Apple, etc... right now. They're really interesting).

I was not making an argument(agrument != Rhetorical question).

While I can see the point of people liking the more solid unibody feel of the phone, With my GS3 in a Solid case I see no point. I have enjoyed being able to fix issue with my phone by pulling the battery (same issue that ATT CS spent 1.5 hour in store/on the phone trying to fix and came up with no solution other than warranty return) so I am not going to buy a phone with internal battery anytime soon.

The lack of SD card support doesn't bother me at all - though the only smartphone I've owned is a GNex and it too lacks one (*cough* not all recent Samsung phones have an SD slot...) - but the lack of a removable battery is a little bothersome. I can't imagine having more than 64GB of anything on my phone, but everyone uses 'em differently I guess.

This has three things I really care about: a great screen, finally some decent speakers for a change, and a [presumably - waiting for reviews] good camera. The addition of 802.11ac now is a nice bonus thumb.gif

Galaxy S3, Note II, Galaxy S3 Mini... all these have SD cards.

Pointless. The new HTC Phones are capable of being reset without pulling the battery at all. You hold the power button down for ten seconds for a full reset and reboot, hold down power and volume down to get into bootloader. If you're telling me that ATT CS didn't know this, you're either not being truthful, or you were dealing with idiots.

The GS3 is far from a solid feeling phone. The HTC Nexus One, HTC One X, LG Optimus and many others make the GS3 feel like a toy.

Yeah, my 920 has the same thing on it.
I think people forget that these are small computers......you know, where you can press and hold the power button and shut it down when locked up?

The 920 is a pretty solid feeling phone. I had the 910 but opted for the One X. Windows Phone just wasn't for me. The main problem with older smart phones was that there literally was no hardware reset other than pulling the battery, that's now been fixed with the power button.
