It's not looking good. There is significant competitive pressure from Apple on the high end and Xiaomi on the low end. The financials are completely dependent on device sales. There's no significant recurring revenue source. Lots of attrition throughout the company, and small, unannounced layoffs on top of that. The EVP of engineering who was brought in with great fanfare 6 months ago has just left. Most SW/FW jobs are going to Eastern Europe. Throughout the organization there is an over abundance of people with high level titles that their performance doesn't warrant, and that the business doesn't need.
