I am a Nokia phone person but HTC from Taiwan has come well into its own in the U.S. market since smart-phones have infiltrated the scene. I have an HTC Ozone and I am more than pleased with it. It's a matter of choice and taste. Shame Nokia's presence has not diversified itself more in the U.S. They were phenomenal when more basic phones were predominant. User-friendly, durable. Hopefully they come out with more smart-phones as well.
