HTC Admits Apple Was Right, LTE Android Phones Are A Total Joke

HTC Admits Apple Was Right, LTE Android Phones Are A Total Joke

Despite the fact that not only are current LTE chips too power-hungry and huge to fit into the iPhone without huge design and performance trade-offs, and the fact that the vast majority of the country has no 4G coverage, a lot of Apple’s Android competitors have been pointing their fingers and laughing at the iPhone over the last year for not embracing LTE.

Well, who’s laughing now? In response to profits that dropped 26% this quarter, HTC had admitted that making an early transition to LTE was a “big mistake.”

While HTC mostly blamed dipping profits on increased competition from Apple and Samsung, Chief Financial Officer Winston Yung also acknowledged that adopting LTE early and making thick, short-lived devices just for the sake of having 4G was a huge mistake. Yung then quickly clarified that the next-generation of devices would fix this problem.

So there you go. Apple’s decision to hold off on LTE wasn’t just correct, but even the competition is now acknowledging that the earliest possible timeline to deliver decent LTE devices is — surprise! — 2012, the year of the LTE iPhone 5.

    Just because it didn’t pay off for HTC to integrate LTE technology into their phones does not mean it didn’t for all the other manufacturers.

    If you have to be Apple fan-boys, please do it a little more classy.

    Could you provide a citation for the “big mistake” remark, please ?

    HTC made one early LTE phone, the Thunderbolt. And yes, its battery was way too small (1400mAh). Not to mention it was also only single-core.

    They’re using LTE as a scapegoat for have a poor Q1 and Q2 2011. Its 2nd LTE phone is fantastic (Rezound), which BTW has a higher ppi than the almighty iPhone 4s.

    The Thunderbolt still boasts network speeds the iPhone can only dream of. So if you are going to try to at least be a little dignified in your journalism at least do it with SOME professionalism.

    Also Samsung ate everyone’s lunch in 2011.

    HTC got Samsung’d!!!!

    What makes everyone here think an LTE iPhone will be just as good on battery life? Are you joking? The 4s’s battery life sucks, just imagine a more powerful CPU, GPU and now LTE?

    HA HA AH AH

    As much as I’d love to see an LTE iPhone, You are most likely correct given the current state of LTE especially on AT&T. Maybe if Apple bumps the release towards the end of the year and AT&T steps it the f’ up.

    One also has to consider the state of LTE internationally. The USA is far ahead of the game in LTE. Yet even there coverage is very patchy. Other countries are far worse. There is NO commercially available LTE in the UK, for example, until at least the end of this year. Wide coverage will not be here until 2014 probably.

    So with this much coverage, what is the potential of an LTE phone in early 2012, never mind last year!?

  • Eric Barbosa

    but that doesnt mean we wont see an LTE verizon iPhone right?

  • Jdsonice

    LTE has certainly been deployed in a lot more cities across US. So it will be interesting to see if Apple comes out with an LTE phone. 

  • lantzn

    What would be the possibility of a dual chip 3G/4G iPhone?  It would sure help in the transition.  That’s is once they tackle the size/battery issues.

  • Aaron

    Case in point: My co-worker was a HUGE Samsung fan. Tried to have the “latest and greatest”, including an LTE phone. Other than having to charge it twice daily (!), his data connection would constantly stop working. Phone calls were sporadic, at best, and when they did work, had a horrible “hissing” sound in the background.

    Many, MANY calls to Verizon got his phone replaced three times. Trying to avoid “rooting” his Android phone, he finally succumbed and put a non-authorized ROM on his phone. That fixed many of the problems, but Verizon had no permanent fix for all his woes (other than dropping to 3G mode).

    The fourth time he called Verizon to get his phone replaced, he got a Motorola Razr. It’s worked well, except for battery life. He still has to charge his phone twice daily (or leave it tethered to USB). 

    Apple holds back until their customers don’t have to go through such pains. Yeah, there are some minor glitches occasionally with Apple products too, but the magnitude (and importance) are significantly smaller.

    So what if I have to wait for the iPhone 5 for LTE? It’s better than having to be on the phone with Verizon/AT&T/Sprint trying to troubleshoot LTE issues.

    Samsung and many of the Android device manufacturers are pushing phones out the door as fast as possible (25 for Samsung alone last year!) without doing thorough quality testing and usability testing. If you don’t mind, go Android. If you actually want to use your phone as a phone, stick with Apple.

    Yes we will. Why should Canada and the US have to suffer because the rest of the world is too slow to adapt. 

  • vistarox

    Why should Canada and the US have to suffer because the rest of the world is too slow to adapt. I’m sure that Apple will make sure to add LTE+3G in the iPhone 5 even if the Europeans are too slow. The North American market is far too large for them to compromise. 

  • jeremymeyers

     um, you did notice the url of this site, right?

  • techgeek01

    HTC is using LTE as an escape-goat. Yes, LTE will (naturally) use more energy.  But it should be worth mentioning that HTC phones do NOT have the best battery life out there.  Or near the best battery life.  So, you’re taking a phone with a so-so battery life and slapping LTE onto it.  Battery life isn’t going to be the best. Or anywhere near it.

    All what happened here is you have a company that has sub-par battery life devices and decided to stick LTE (which is battery hungry) into their phone.  Of course it’s going to suck!  It’s like sticking a quad turbo W16 engine underneath the hood of the hummer. The hummer already has bad fuel economy and sticking a quad turbo W16 is just going to make it a lot worse.

    There is two reasons why Apple didn’t stick LTE into the iPhone (yet).

    1) The chip was too big (and possibly produce too much heat?)

    2) iPhone 4S battery life is WORSE than the 4. And depending who you talk to, well it could be a lot worse than the 4.

    The only way for a LTE iPhone to “work”, it would have had to be about 4.3 inches. That would give enough room for the chip and enough room for a larger battery.

    LTE Android phones aren’t a joke.  What happened is you had a company that is known for it’s subpar battery life, and decided to add LTE to their phones.  Naturally, their phones will SUCK even more.  And all they are doing is pushing the blame to someone else.  It should be worth mentioning that their first LTE phone had a SMALLER battery than the iPhone.

    Although HTC is coming out and saying that 4G chips eat up batteries, I still hear those Android fanbois saying that they get great battery life from 4G smartphones, so I guess “great battery life” is relative from user to user.  The tech geniuses all claim that Apple is so far behind the tech curve for not including 4G in the current iPhone despite Apple’s claims that the current 4G chips are too large and too power hungry.  You honestly can’t trust tech geniuses when it comes to consumer goods because they’re either liars or lacking in common sense.  I believe very few consumers would be willing to trade 40% of their devices battery life merely for faster download speeds.  When a smartphone vendor is willing to come out and admit something like that, the tech critics should really just shut their mouths on the subject of how useful and wonderful current 4G smartphones are.

    Apple said it would come out with a 4G smartphone when Qualcomm was ready to offer the next generation 4G chipset which is a tinier package and more power efficient.  As long as you can switch off the 4G option and save battery power then that’s a much better option.  This BS about how everyone is craving 4G LTE Android smartphones is ridiculous.  They’re not selling that many of them and it’s costly to even have a 4G data plan.  Bleeding edge tech merely leaves early adopters and average consumers bleeding.  iPhone users are not missing out on that much with high-speed 3G downloads and just remember that iPhones do not have a user swappable battery as most Android smartphones do.  The tech geniuses need to stop comparing iPhone users and Android smartphone users because Apple is more concerned with end-user experience rather than outright features.

    Nonsense – all the current LTE phones suck when it comes to battery life. Every single one!

  • 300AShareMakesMeSmile

    You might be right about the iPhone since I’m not sure what the Qualcomm 4G chipset package size is and if it’s small enough to pack into the iPhone without taking up battery real estate.  However, I do think that we will see the Qualcomm Gobi 4000 4G LTE chipset in iPad 3.  It should be power efficient enough for the iPad to handle with the larger battery size.  Anyway, so what if the iPhone doesn’t have 4G.  The consumer world at large is not crying out for those faster download speeds at a much higher data rate cost.  Tech critics are full of crap saying that consumers must have 4G and any handset without it is outdated.  2013 is early enough. Let the Android fanbois play with it if they need it so badly. It won’t hurt iPhones sales if 4G isn’t included.

    I wish Apple could license that particular 4G LTE technology and build it into its own A6 processors as SoC.

  • techgeek01

    from all the iPhone 4S users I know complaining about how horrible the battery life is, apple must have a dud on their hands as well.

    And I hear (over and over) they have to turn the screen all the way down, make sure that blue-tooth, wi-fi are off and that all of their applications are closed, to get through the day.

    It’s hilarious I haven’t heard any Android user having to do that to get through the day.

  • mugag

    Whaaaat ?! Everyone complains about the battery life especially Galaxy S2 users !

  • techgeek01

    Hilarious! Since everybody raves on how amazing the battery life is on the Galaxy S II! 

  • ConceptVBS

    A big mistake for a crappy company who cant handle or have the R&D resources of a company like Samsung.

    Samsung on the other hand have plenty of successes with LTE not to mention the R&D talent behind the technology. Did I mention the number of patents that its holds on LTE tech?

  • kcwookie

    I did. T-Mobile’s MyTouch 4g sucked. Now you have. You can even contact T-Moble tech support and sweet talk them into verifying how many time I called about that POS.

    Incredibly well put! Take a bow.

    I can’t lay claim to this quote, but the single most important aspect to Apple’s business model is their ability to say “no”. They’ve been doing it for years from the floppy drive to the non-replaceable battery in the iPhone to dropping the physical media drive on the MacBook Air and Mac Mini (with iTunes, AirDrop, and iCloud there’s very little need for a physical drive). 

    You have to respect a huge company like Apple to pass on the 4G bandwagon while everyone else uses it as the single most important feature of their product.

    Numbers don’t lie. If 4G was the key to success then the iPhone 4S would’ve plummeted in sales but it didn’t. It’s sold through the roof, continues to outsell the hundreds of Android devices with (arguably) larger feature sets, and continues to be the gold standard for the industry.

    It’s not that “physical media” is dead, it’s just what it’s being stored on. Floppy diskettes got smaller, then transitioned to CD’s. CD’s turned into DVD’s, and DVD’s are now transitioning to flash drives and SD cards, then hopefully evolve into Thunderbolt flash drives and such. Yes, these will eventually go away as well, and cloud-based storage and digital distribution will rule supreme, but the large stuff will always be on some form of physical media.

  • hittrj01

    Your three iPhone friends (one of which I assume is imaginary) having issues that are that serious must be the majority, then. Don’t mind the facts that the iPhone 4 AND the iPhone 4S trounce just about everybody else in battery tests. Here, I actually have tangible proof!

    There are only two phones on that list that beat the 4S, and one of them is 4.5 freaking inches, so it is going to have a MASSIVE battery. Having a bigger battery doesn’t mean the phone is better at battery management, just that it has a bigger battery.

  • hittrj01

    Exactly! America has had to suffer too long with last-generation phones, dueling standards (GSM vs. CDMA) and colluding telco’s. At least give us LTE!

  • hittrj01

    Yep, you are 100% right, since the iPhone 4S is the 5th gen iPhone. Wouldn’t make sense to call the 6th gen iPhone the iPhone 5. Now, will we see an LTE iPhone 6? Absolutely!

  • bay_estrian

    quick, somebody call consumer reports and feel them they’re useless.

  • Len Williams

    There are no goats roaming at large to blame things on (“escape-goat”). There are, however, those who don’t know the actual word is “scapegoat” which is in the dictionary and everything: “a person who is blamed for the wrongdoings, mistakes, or faults of others, esp. for reasons of expediency.” I shudder at what is happening to the English language, and that very few people seem to notice. Dictionaries are good things folks.

    Samsung Galaxy S2 Sales Explode: 10% of All South Koreans Own One

    http://www.androidpit.com/en/a

    Samsung Galaxy S2 sales account for 1 in 4 of all smartphones sold in South Korea, helping the company secure a 53% market share. The iPhone 4S, on the other hand, has seen surprisingly low sale, due to battery life complaints and lack of support for 4G LTE. 

  • Aufdenschlips

    Off Topic but PLEASE GET THE OLD WEB DESIGN BACK THE NEW ONE IS SO UNPLEASANT

  • sn0wball

    here in eastern europe, we have 3g only, coverage which is at best so-so. so 4g lte for people outside the US is a joke

  • sn0wball

    your so right. i could care less for 4g, i barely use 3g. wifi all over the place. and I’m not one to watch movies on my iPhone. It’s a gadget yes, but people(mostly Android users) often forget that its also a PHONE!!

  • KyleRay

    Apple is the NEW AOL Hell Garden Walled Prison Farm on Dialup compared to forward thinking companies who are truly innovative and just don’t talk about being that. Talk is Cheap….. like Apple is by spending less on R&D and Next Gen Tech than any other phone maker!  ……while the rest of us are already moving into the Smartphone World of the Future! 

    Believe me, my Samsung LTE Smartphone makes 3G look like AOL Hell Dialup. Because Android is for the people…. customers instead of only focusing on their own bottom line over true customer desires, wants and needs!

  • tv_gadget

    aww did this article hurt your fandroid feelings??

  • Rick James

    Your post generalizing on all Android LTE phones seems to be in error:

  • Njideka Okafor

    I have an Idea. Why don’t we advance the technologies and put small nuclear reactors into those Adroid phones. Maybe they can begin to see better battery life and then their claims of a great product may begin to hold some water.

  • Njideka Okafor

    I don’t think so. Last I checked it was still being deployed on some of the major networks.

  • SevanGrim

    lol i hate Apple as a company, but your fanboyism is making you incorrect sir.
     Apple has always been about their customers, simply because they know as long as their experience is exceptional, people will pay out the ass for it. meanwhile the competition (as proven here) simply pushes out devices that have whatever is hot and new… even if it makes their device itself less than desirable. people who dont know anything about phones buy Iphones because they are designed to feel easy and comfortable. Android is just trying to be better than them. “WE HAVE BIGGER SCREENS!” “WE HAVE LTE!” “WE HAVE A BUILT IN KICKSTAND! LOOK LOOOOOOK!” …and the device has a crudy shelf life.
      Bottom line, Apple is the front runner, and they will be until an Iphone flops. You can argue your point the second an Android phone last as long as ANY iphone has.

  • saudio

    I just did a speed test on my iPhone4 (not 4s) and got just under 3Mb down on AT&T 3G. That’s almost as fast as some of my friends’ DSL connections. With excellent battery life, I’m glad Apple waited until THEY KNOW it works.

    BTW, I just did a 2nd test after typing the above and got 3.73Mb down and 1.22Mb up. No complaints here!
