HTC had to face a few problems with the One smartphone model early on during its life cycle. All of it led to the device not making it to the correct spot in consumer acceptance or popularity when compared to other gadgets of the same genre. The device has a very interesting specification and is extremely well put together. It sure was one of the best smartphones money could buy when it was launched and still is to a large extent. But then, for a device supposedly as good as the One, there just isn’t as many of the device in the market.
Here are the reasons why. Production of the HTC One had met with some slowdown effects, which can be attributed to the difficulty the manufacturers were facing in putting together the ultrapixel camera, one of the star attractions of the HTC One. But there was another major factor which played against the gadget and that was its lack of support for Verizon. Verizon is one of the largest network service providers in the US. That HTC did not provide for support for Verizon in its device was surely not a wise move and could be labeled as an important factor for the HTC One not becoming as popular as it should have been.
Fortunately, there seem some bright spots in the horizon. EvLeaks, the source for quite authentic leaks on gadgets of the day, has been displaying the HTC One alongside other HTC phones from Verizon. The HTC One has also been indicated under its code name of M7 at many other sites which gives the launch date as July.
We have also had references of the T6 before though that is least likely to be the HTC One. Instead, there is a greater likelihood of the T6 to be a replacement for the Droid DNA. The latter too is very capable in its own right and consumers eager to upgrade can do well to check this one out as well.
