I think tomorrow is D-DAY for HTC. If the 10 doesn't deliver many (at least I do) will get a phone from a different brand. I'm opting for the S7 edge but I managed to contain my eager till tomorrow the 12th. Please HTC .. do not disappoint us.

Using my S5 one handed makes it hard to swipe down from the top of the screen or reach the top left hand corner because my hand has to be far down enough to use the capacitive buttons. I have slightly large hands also, but I prefer to use my phone one handed as I mainly use it while eating lunch with the other hand. On screen buttons let you hold the phone closer to centre. I feel that my S5 is top heavy since I have to hold it so low, luckily the grippy back means I have never dropped it in almost 2 years of ownership.
I'm complaining now because HTC, Sony, LG and Huawei were the only big brands outside of nexus devices doing on screen buttons. Now they take the popularity of Samsung and apple to mean that everyone hates on screen buttons? I don't feel that way, I bought a samsung phone for other reasons despite the capacitive buttons. It's very hard to find the perfect phone for single handed use that also has the largest screen possible, on screen buttons could go a long way to helping this issue since the screen is still full height when viewing media and wider for everything else but it is much easier to reach all of the screen with just your thumb.

Also that's one of the main features that pisses me off about Xperia phones as well.
This HTC was already tested and out performs the S7 series devices which is awesome that HTC is back on track with performance. But I'm super disappointed that they with the similar design as Samsung and Apple. It's too basic a design. They should of used the X9 design to be more daring but because of the lack of advertising, people will just think this is a Galaxy knockoff which sucks because HTC can make great products

M7 had "Capacitive Buttons" below the screen, when M8 came with buttons on the screen some complained. One of the complaints was it eats up the screen, meaning they don't use the whole screen fully. Now it looks like they're back down, it's still not good. What exactly do we want? No one is complaining about the same buttons on Galaxy S Series etc. Anyhow, lets wait for the final release on Tuesday.

Looks like a Samsung I am bitterly disappointed I thought we were going to see something different and a little daring from HTC :(
FinestBezels, 10 Apr 2016After see this I would get Huawei I too. Huawei P9
Capacitive and home buttons are too low. Why sit them way below the screen like that, it makes it harder to reach the top of the screen while also being able to comfortably use the buttons. IMO they should have stayed with on screen buttons.
Chrishd3z, 09 Apr 2016This is a horrible and boring looking smartphone. I only hope this is not what HTC has had me ... moresame here being a htc fans. current using htc one m8, because one m9+ is not really very good so i am waiting for a better htc to come out, if this htc 10 doesnt meet what i wish for i will also go for s7 edge
Where is the app drawer ??? Also, they could have done better with that fingerprint sensor
HTC is dead. Nowadays, nobody would talk about HTC.
Same thing happens to Sony smartphone.
R.I.P HTC and Sony.
HTC will have to demonstrate that he understood the new trend of people's demands, in connection with the phones produced by them. For now, expect to see a real, how will be equipped this new phone. After testing it, I'll see if HTC is on track or not.
This is a horrible and boring looking smartphone. I only hope this is not what HTC has had me waiting for. If it is I'm getting the S7 Edge.
