World's best phone isn't the One to boost HTC

The omen of the HTC First
In fact, the digits show that HTC's profits are down by a hefty 83 per cent from those in the same quarter last year.
It brought in NT$1.25 billion (about $41.63m/£27.7m/AU$45.4m) compared to NT$91.04 billion (about $3bn/£2bn/AU$3.3bn) a year before. Not great, then.
While it's still better news than last quarter, it shows that the HTC One, which reportedly sold 5 million units in its first 50 days, wasn't quite the saviour that the company and investors had banked on.
We're currently anticipating the arrival of the HTC One Mini - could this help turn the company's fortunes around?
