HTC's lack of response to the T-bolt is exactly why I WILL NEVER ever own another HTC device. Period.
I had a T-bolt and I thought it was great for the first LTE phone out there. Sure there were glitches along the way, but not as bad as people make it out to be. I expected some problems with the first to adopt a new technology. Battery life was poor, but not much worse than the iphones at the time. If I were in the market for a new phone, I would have no problem looking at HTC again. Like Ck said, The One is a sweet device.
Unfortunately, the real point of all of this is the lack of support that *any* HTC device on Verizon gets. If that well-established and consistent pattern continues to hold, the HTC One will just be the next darn-good hardware to induce suffering on its victims^w owners.
Proceed at your own risk...
I appreciated his apologies. However, I am going to switch to S4. Thunderbolt was my first HTC phone. Before this HTC, I had a Motorola Droid the 1st. The first year, I had no problem with TBolt except with battery. But after I got an ICS update, almost everything lags!! I get a constant Sync turn on itself almost every time I turn my phone on! I can't wait to get rid of HTC. My brother have the same phone and hates it. We both will get the S4! Adios HTC!
GENERALLY SPEAKING, the only people who dislike HTC are those who had Thunderbolts. I currently have a G-Nex and I love it, but I had an DInc 2 before it and I would go back to HTC in a HEARTBEAT.
I love Sense and I love the build quality of HTC phones. Before Samsung started coming out with awesome phones, I felt like HTC was the best Android manufacturer HANDS DOWN.
For me, HTC does a great job building a high-quality software/hardware package when they sell it. After that, well, you're largely on your own. That's what I dislike about HTC. I know that there are many others that feel similarly.
