Many folks might have forgotten the Carrier IQ incident but I don't think they have forgotten how they felt having HTC spy on them. I don't think they ever recovered after that incident.
HTC have done some great phones. Back in 2010, they were really the go-to manufacturer for Android phones. They did a great job with the Nexus 1 and the follow ups, but they sort of lost focus in 2011 and were swamped by Samsung. They've done a great job with the One series, but again, Samsung has come stronger and, though the X has some points over the S3, Samsung has done an incredible marketing job and has now a brand name that is helping them sell their offerings. I sincerely hope HTC can pull it together and come up with more compelling devices; there is already rumours of an upgraded X to be announced in the coming months, maybe that'll be the beginning of their comeback.
