Why HTC, Sony and LG are still in the segment of smartphones?

Competition is fierce in the segment of smartphones. The former referents have become mere comparsas, and companies like HTC, Sony and LG keep your bets year after year despite the reality yells insistently to leave. Do not you gain money, so why so much effort?

That is the question that many pose some manufacturers who have long been trying to regain a position that seems impossible to be recovered. Today only two giants can boast of making money with mobile: Apple and Samsung. Chinese manufacturers are unknown despite its growth, but its market share should convince HTC, Sony or LG to make a decision just taken not mentioned. A withdrawal time, they say, is a victory. There must be some reason for it not be for them.
