HTC competitors are not Samsung Galaxy S7 or LG G5. These 2 are in a different league IMHO.
HTC direct competition is Huawei P9. I would say that P9 is better as a phone.
The sale figures will confirm this: when you have a phone with the price of a top category but with low sales then it means it has nothing to do with that category (apart from the price).
Fan boys may debate on the boom sound subject but you can't listen to music if you don't have enough battery to finish the day. You can't speak about premium design when you don't have enough battery to start the phone after 2 PM. You can't speak about bigger pixels on the camera when a phone with much smaller pixels and identical aperture take much better pictures in any condition (LG G5).
How about the PRO mode of the camera ?!: I want to take a picture and the settings will fill the entire screen. What kind of camera design is that?
This to me is a weak phone and even placing in the same category with Huawei I believe it's too much.

It is simple like this. You have Ferrari ,Lamborghini and Porsche. There some people like Porsche and some Ferrari, some prefer Lamborghini and some prefer "Toyota" :P.If you like a Ferrari you can't say that Lamorghini sucks. So i like HTC, i had the HTC phones since the beggining of the smartphone era. I had Samsung and Iphone and Sony and some other ones. I tried everyone. And for me the HTC is the best. I don't says that other phones sucks. Samsung and Iphone they have great phones but i like HTC. Thats my opinion. :D

And I've never owned an HTC phone in my life, so I can hardly be a "fanboy".
Anonymous, 03 May 2016You edit your comment. Why did you remove "HTC FTW"? That's why there is "edit" option
Got one from Taiwan, it's just solid, neat, straight forward. Nothing too fancy like S7 tough S7 is a great phone too.
Overall, HTC 10 is the phone of the year.
Barsylyk, 03 May 2016At last i saw someone with a respectful information.
You've just describe HTC perfectly.
It'... moreFanboy detected. So far none of these phones have impressed me to say "FTW"
I will wait to see what the Note 6 will be like.

It's a shame that there are few of us left in this universe who think that way.
Let us hope more people realize the truth of HTC's vision :)

I state the disadvantages of the HTC so it automatically means I dislike lol.

It's not game-changing but it's worth having. HTC has spent a long time making it work right and it does work pretty good.

Your argument about amoled burn in made you lose any credibility you had. It isn't the year 2000. So continue to make stuff up. Stick to the facts.
24bit dac? GSM arena states it is not the best. LG and S7 is still on par
HTC advantage are you kidding me? LOL
Lets talk facts....
The inferior battery
The inferior screen brightness
The inferior Screen quality
The inferior Camera (though slightly)
The inferior construction (No dust or waterproof)
The inferior call speaker
The inferior loud speaker (should be called silent speaker)
The slowness exhibited in Youtube videos vs other flagships
Those are just a few FACTS. I hope you understand what facts are now, stick to them. So far HTC has the better selfie camera. That's a FACT.

The 10 is better for me because it caters more to my need, which is different than yours.
HTC 10 is better than its competitors because it has:
- an OIS-equipped front camera
- the capability of shooting a video with high-res audio
- BoomSound Hi-Fi speakers
- 24-bit DAC
- the capability to playback audio in FLAC format
- an exquisite industrial design with those chamfered edges
- great build quality
- minimal bezel
- the best-looking skin on the market, on par with Stock Android
- buttery-smooth and fluid Sense UI
- free of fragmentation of apps
- a creative and powerful theming engine
- HTC Advantage
- the ability to unlock the bootloader without voiding the warranty
- Uh Oh protection
- unobstructive capacitive nav-buttons, all the while having a capacitive home button instead of a clicky one
- solid-feeling sleep button and volume rocker
- SuperLCD 5 instead of AMOLED, so no worries of burn-in there
- USB-C with QC 3.0 to ensure further future-proofing
By the way, this argument is bordering on pointlessness and absurdity. I can't change your view, and you can't change mine. I won't respond to any replies. Period.
