An ode to iPhone – Why do we need change?

Having had an iPhone for a grand total of 5 years, it is safe to say that no matter how hard I try to convince people it is the superior device, not many would side with me.

HTC made a huge leap with their One series – especially the One X. Upon opening the box the screen protector said “The One You’ve Been Waiting For..” I thought to myself – you certainly are! Perhaps the only disappointing thing about the One X was the plastic body which dents oh so easily. Especially when some of their mid range phones were aluminium unibody builds.

But now – look at what they’ve achieved!
