My first HTC smartphone purchase was back in around 2006, it was a really crappy XDA-type of Windows phone that was just bulky and slow as it could ever be.
Well, after using Nexus One, HTC Evo 4G, and my HTC G2 Phone, I am quite convinced that HTC has come a long way and impressed with the quality Android smartphones they can produce now. I would say HTC tops all other manufacturers right now including Motorola and Samsung for Android smartphones.
I think the main reason behind this is that HTC got on Android first before anyone else, starting with the original Google Phone, G1 Phone.
Anyways, HTC CEO just announced no more locked bootloaders, meaning it will be easier for people to root their phones and install new ROMs. Cool, I wish Motorola would do this soon.
”There has been overwhelmingly customer feedback that people want access to open bootloaders on HTC phones. I want you to know that we’ve listened. Today, I’m confirming we will no longer be locking the bootloaders on our devices. Thanks for your passion, support and patience,” Peter Chou, CEO of HTC
