There are plenty of reasons to like HTC smartphones and in the wake of their announcement about Dropbox we’re going to run through them. The Taiwanese manufacturer really helped to elevate the Android operating system with a number of really desirable smartphones. They also produced the first Google branded Android smartphone, the Google Nexus One. Profits soared as the platform took off and HTC released Android devices across the board at various price points.
Then Samsung jumped on the Android bandwagon and had a smash hit with their Samsung Galaxy S, released in various guises on all the U.S. carriers. Samsung was chosen as the manufacturer of the next Google branded smartphone, the Google Nexus S. HTC seemed to fall behind a little after releasing the first 4G Android smartphone – the HTC EVO. Samsung came out with the dual-core powerhouse, the Samsung Galaxy S II, while HTC was still releasing single core devices. The recently announced Galaxy Nexus seems to be further evidence of Samsung’s claim to the Android throne but HTC has not been sitting idly by.
The HTC Amaze 4G is one of the most powerful smartphones around and they have continued to aim for various segments of the market with releases like the female-friendly HTC Rhyme, the Facebook messaging HTC Status, and the HTC Evo 3D offering 3D support. They’ve also continued to work with Microsoft by releasing some of the best Windows Phone 7 devices to date, and there are more due to be released very soon, the HTC Radar and the Titan.
So what makes HTC smartphones such a good choice? We’ll start with the recently announced deal.
