Cooler: HTC shuts down premium fan community Elevate

In 10 years, smartphones have entered their most glorious era, but HTC, a former Android pioneer, has fallen into the altar and has been in the mud for a long time. The HTC Elevate Community Program announced the closure, according to multiple users. Elevate is an advanced community set up by HTC for core fans and supporters, with invitation-only membership.

The community is built primarily for HTC to collect product feedback, in return for participants to have the opportunity to receive freebies, attend launches, and more. As a member of the community, you must also ensure that you land at least once in January or you will be kicked out.

Unfortunately, since last week, members of the Elevate community have found problems with website visits (502 false reports) when they regularly logged in, and did not expect to wait to fully recover, but were “shot” by the authorities.

HTC’s 2019 revenue was just $3.3 million, down 57.82 percent from a year earlier, according to the data. This makes more people wonder if the HTC, which launched “G1” “One M7” and “Big Badguys” that year, will come back?
