HTC deservedly have tanked of late, and rightly so. Tired designs (up until the One X and S), bloated software, pretty poor customer service for the most part and whilst perceived build quality is good in the long run their phones don't stand the test of time all that well.

Plus the new One X and One S have had their issues from the MOX chipping away on the One S to the One X having poorly fitted screens and cases to screens having yellow blotches on them.

 

Apart from the One X has had a lot of issues for a new phone, with about 1/3 of people on xda having to have at least one swapped from a poll I saw, and numerous people on the HUKD thread for it at £36 having to return theirs too for many different reasons. Newer models seem less affected so I'd put it down to HTC trying to rush the One X out before Samsung's GS3.

 

On the topic of bloat I was talking about the OEM skin itself and the latest revision of the TouchWiz UX is closer to stock than HTC's skin whilst anything added is usually a benefit. One phone without any bloated software? Umm... the Nexus line of phones from Google, iPhone and Windows Phone 7 devices.

 

I can easily deny Sense 4.0 veubg class, it's a lot better than it was but there really isn't a need for it as the skin adds nothing to Android now. You could've argued with 1.x and 2.x builds of Android it improved hugely on the aesthetics but now Sense is arguably the ugliest skin out there on the high end devices.

 

Sense had its appeals before Android 4.x and I could understand why people liked it (although when I was on Android CyanogenMod was Godly and I wouldn't use anything else) but it's not needed now.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3

Each to there own but I know where I stand and sense rocks :smileywink: I really ment Android phones but yes I forgot about nexus. I know 3 people who have One x 4 including me and not one of use have a problem. You also have to remember people who have a issue post on forums, people who dont have a problem dont go posting My phone works great. So it seems alot more people are having problems. And I had my phone from second week of release so its not down to rushing, its down to some people just get un-lucky.

I believe that Apple source around $10bn a year worth of parts from Amstrad. Oops! I meant Samsung.

 


 

I thought they were legally bound to buy the parts from samsung, as samsung invented them, whenever apple had a problem samsung fixed it but made them sign an agreement to buy parts into the future.

 

Them agreements have all ended, and now samsung does not let apple into any of their innovations, hence apple isnt on the cutting edge processors that samsung have, and hence apple has to talk about pixel density when better amoled screen tech is in phones.

 

When you leave apple to it themselves, they cant even put an antenna in right lol. But thats what happens when your technical partners are the chinnese lol.

Just thought I would post this as I remembered this thread when I saw this. Looks like neither phone really fairs well when dropped. Though I wouldn't want call one test legitimate but nevertheless it was an interesting watch.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3

OK my dad is trying to turn off the face detection thing when he's trying to view his photos. Anyone know how to do that? I've Google'd, I've YouTube'd, nothing.

Has he tried taking photos of people from behind?
