2. HTC’s Market Value is Dropping Dramatically
Yesterday we saw just Samsung marketing cost is three times the HTC’s Market value and latest report show the market value of Taiwanese is at the lowest past 8 years (It lost 90% of its value just in the last 2 years). Financial analytics believe that in near future, HTC will follow BlackBerry and Nokia, and the value drops enough to attract a buyer (Facebook is a potential buyer). We hate to say, but the end is near for HTC.
3. Samsung Is Not Alone. Other Companies are Faking Benchmarks Too
It seems Samsung is not alone in the competition to show fake numbers in benchmarks, as HTC Hero’s benchmark, as the very first Android device, shows this artificial boosts in scores. In other side, Apple and Motorola are the only two companies who didn’t change the CPU and GPU performances to get unreal results.
