Seeing how everyone is htc vs samsung. Im going to throw my view of it.
Owned the htc mytouch 4g. I loved the phone, only had a problem with the battery. Which I had to replace.
Was lookinh for the htc one x+, but that never came to my provider. So I went with the galaxy note 2. I have never been happier with my decision. Im not sure on the newer htc phones, but these current samsung devices are just so easy to mod. Ive installed a custom rom and it just improves everything of the phone. I can even overclock the processor if I wanted.
Next phone will be a samsung, but ill have to wait till this contract is done.
