HTC hasn't been very good quality in a few years from my experience. They were good when Android first started out, but turned to crap once Samsung started taking the lead in popularity
the only HTC device that actually has my interest now is there new WP8 phone, it's actually a quality piece of hardware again
This. It seems the market goes in cycles. HTC had a while there, I'd say a year or two where their phones were garbage. Phones like the HTC Sensation, I remember my friend getting that one when I got the Infuse. It was terrible. Sense was terrible, everything about it was terrible. Meanwhile, Samsung was building fantastic devices that were far superior to HTC. Fast forward to the current market and Samsung's phones are getting cheaper and cheaper, and HTC's new flagships like the One series for Android and the 8 series for Windows Phone are about the best on the market. So I wouldn't take your anger towards them too far. They go in cycles of good phone and bad phones, you just have to pick the cycles right. I could promise you the 8X would be an incredible phone compared to the Titan II. You just hit them on the end of their crap cycle.

Way to be dismissive!
Back in the WinMo v6 days, HTC was king. Now they are pure suck. The horrendous battery life of my wife's HTC EVO 4G is all I need to know never to go near them. Seriously though, did anyone test that phone out before selling it?
See above. Their current phones certainly do not suck, but the phones for the last couple years prior, yes. The EVO was the first mainstream phone with a 4.3" screen and 4G, of course it had terrible battery life. That phone was a HUGE hit though as it was the best of everything for a while there, but you paid for it in poor battery life. People need to research phones and understand limitations or issues with them and how they affect what they look for in a phone before they purchase them.
