HTC has had a rough few years.
Though the company opted to iterate on this design for another three generations, other manufacturers began to catch up.
Samsung moved from a plastic-y, cheap-feeling set of flagships to the all-glass unibody designs we see today.
Even smaller brands like ZTE and Huawei started producing high-quality options at extremely competitive prices.
It’s no secret that HTC still produces incredibly interesting hardware.
HTC’s software trim happened almost four generations ago, and yet the UI has barely evolved ever since.
