Currently Apple’s flagship smartphone is the Apple iPhone 5S. Flagship: the best or most important thing owned or in this case produced by a particular organization or company. Another comparison is when buying a new phone with a plan. The iPhone 5S has an outrageous starting price of $199.99; whereas, Android has a multitude of devices and prices starting at $0. To sum things up, you can get a better phone for a lower price by buying an Android.

HTC was dedicated towards fulfilling the needs of the customers and always came up with new products that gave it a competitive advantage. According to David (2010), the Company started out by making personal digital assistants (PDAs) for other companies. It then transitioned into the fast growing Smartphone category- high-end mobile phones that could do everything from e-mail to internet surfing to playing digital video. After making iPAQ, HTC founders started to think of making smart phones and wireless PDAs (David 2010). The smart phones would facilitate users to browse and access e-mail services through their mobile phones while as well as eliminating changing of network by the customers. It was through the company’s dedication and perseverance that HTC became the world’s largest manufacturer of smart phones that ran Microsoft’s windows mobile operating system.
