HTC One sales are encouraging as they hit 5 million
HTC have apparently sold 5 million Ones, which is quite a lot. Not a lot in comparison to the Samsung Galaxy S4 or the iPhone 5 but it is still good. People are obviously buying the HTC One.

According to WSJ an HTC executive has revealed the figures and that the HTC One is selling

“pretty good so far”

The HTC One started selling in March in parts of Europe and April elsewhere, so the five million is spread over a few months. So this isn’t anywhere near Samsung’s 10 million in a month, but it’s definitely second place in recent times.

Whether or not this news stops anymore executives resigning I don’t know. It seems like something bigger is happening. Although HTC did say over the weekend that they are due to ramp up production of the HTC One, so hopefully sales will continue at a pace. I for one don’t want the Android market to become a one horse race each year and I really want someone to force Samsung to make better quality devices. Let’s just hope HTC can hang in there for a few more years.

Oh and no one mention the HTC First.

  • The issue is that the general public are brain washed. I know S3 users who have moved to the S4 and have realised there is little difference, if anything some are noticing lag.

      I had a similar conversation with a guy earlier today. He upgraded
      his S3 and complained that the S4 was slower and barely any different.
      He said he is going to sell it on eBay and switch back to the S3! Bit
      extreme, but these are the sort of people we’re dealing with here… I
      kind of get the impression that just because they are renewing their
      contract they absolutely have to get a new phone, because it gives them
      the idea that they’re not actually paying for it, when they in fact are
      paying through the nose, more often than not.

      I think if I were
      going to upgrade my S3, I’d probably opt for something a little
      different, such as the HTC One or Xperia Z. I must say, I’m thinking of
      just buying an Xperia as a holiday phone that I can take a swim with!
      If that’s not a valid reason to part with a bunch of cash, I don’t know
      what is.

        It’s the iPhone mentality……’a new version has come out, I must upgrade to it’
        I’m happy for HTC, they need a slice of good fortune.
