Absolutely. The only reason I have only owned Samsung Android phones (Fascinate (GS1), Galaxy Nexus, and the S4) is due to the availability of removable storage, removable batteries, and recently wireless charging. There is no other reason but those, I have absolutely no brand loyalty. Whatever is better for my use, I'll buy. HTC, I would gladly buy one of your phones, I was able to get a hold of the M8 and I loved it, absolutely loved it. I just do not like the ultra pixel camera (I don't take pictures in the dark and I like to crop my pictures, 4 MP doesn't cut it) or the non-removable battery, it kills the device for me. But maybe these other manufacturers are lucky, because with all this KNOX stuff, if I can't root and unlock the bootloader for my next Samsung phone (probably the S6 due to the above reasons), I'll buy from a different manufacturer. I also don't get all this vitriol towards phones being big. I have small hands for an above average height male (someone busted my hands as a child, that probably stunted their growth) and I have no problem using my S4 with one hand, no problem at all. These 5" inch screens are the norm now, get use to it. They are amazing for anything from consuming media to texting. I recently decided to turn on my old Fascinate which has a 4" screen and I don't know how I lasted a year with that phone, the screen is just too small, I'm looking at you iPhone users, but maybe you'll be lucky if the leaks prove true (I can't tell you the amount of times I have heard from iPhone users that their number one complaint about their phone is the screen size). I just don't get the hate for large screens, they're amazing. I see little Asian ladies all the time with their tiny hands on the train carrying around Notes and they have no problem using it. It's whatever is best for your usage, and it just so happens that with our current smartphone usage, 5" screens are the best size.
