S7 has a much better camera... moreHahaha. Are you mad or something like that? The link doesn't tell about camera.
This link shows how the battery drains fast. The first 2 hours web surfing HTC 10 remain 81% battery where S7 remain 75% (S7 consumed 6% more battery in 2 hours). The next 2 hours web browsing HTC 10 remains 56% battery where S7 remains 48% ( S7 consumed 8% more battery in next 2 hours). understand? The link nothing says about camera or other features.
GizmoTechReview, 11 May 2016I agree that most people who root are just normal users wanting to use pirated games and apps.... morewell im using a LG G2 at the moment and cant see the screen hardly outside and it doesnt bother me to much. I love this htc line because of durability and smooth performance . it cant be beat that ive seen. My only complaint from the m7 was the small screen size.
samer1970, 11 May 2016Rooting is getting full access to the operating system .. it becomes like a PC you can install... morethank you for the detailed explanation im glad i posted . Rooting is not for me, the person who told me about it explained it much different and none of the risk you told me about , Im not a gamer . I was told it could give data and such . so thank you
samer1970, 11 May 2016Rooting is getting full access to the operating system .. it becomes like a PC you can install... moreI agree that most people who root are just normal users wanting to use pirated games and apps. There is a big danger in doing that.
I disagree that the HTC 10's screen is crap. In my opinion, it is great! Better than any other HTC screen so far. It does work well in sunlight if you keep the screen brightness high. If your screen brightness setting is low, it is hard to see...but that is common sense.
Can I really trust in the one day shipping on htc page? Im in Miami for a Few days only. Any other place to buy it? Thanks

it is very risky however because now it is open , so a hacker can access it very easy or any program on it if it has a spy program can spy on you , record convrsations , and send it to otther servers even record what you say at home by enabling the mic on !!! without the need of turning the screen on etc ... or take pics and send them , also can spy on your location or steal passwords and bank information , VERY EASY . so it is not recommended unless you dont care .
people root just to play pirated games and programs without the need of paying fof them , thats the main reason .. other are excuses IMO. all android software are in torrent for free even $50 xpensive ones ... thats why people root dont believe their excuses. and criminals put spy programs inside those pirated programs so unless you are an expert to know if a program is clean or infected with spyin program , never root.
as for the HTC 10 , it is very nice but the screen is garbage compared to samsung . also the S7 Edge wins in battery life , however the edge is hard to use if you accedently press on the edges while using it thats why is impossible to use without a case .
S7 and HTC 10 are equal in performance but the screen of HHTC 10 sucks outdoors .

When you take your phone out of the box, while there are plenty of settings you can tweak, you can only alter what the manufacturer and carrier allows you to. By gaining root access you can modify the device's software on the very deepest level. It takes a bit of hacking (some devices more than others), it voids your warranty, and there's a small chance that you could completely break your phone forever. However, some people take that risk so they can enjoy the benefits of rooting.
Rooting offers these abilities:
1. Install OS (operating system) updates when you want to without having to wait for a release from your carrier. However, you have to go find and download that update that someone puts online to use. (Risky)
2. Change phone settings that normal users can't change because the manufacturer does not want you to tinker with setting that deeply. HTC is one of the few manufacturers that allows for "developer options" without having to root your phone and it does not void your warranty.
3. Not having to use the "skin" provided by the manufacturer. For example, if you root a Samsung phone and hate their Touchwiz "skin", you can install any skin you want into the phone. However, this can and often does disable some features of the phone. Camera software can stop working, etc etc.
4. Get rid of APPS you don't want. Some carriers and manufacturers will preinstall their own apps that they don't allow you to remove. This is called "bloat". The HTC 10 has done a FANTASTIC job of getting rid of bloat. It uses mainly only essential Google apps and ALL of them can be removed without rooting.
There are other reasons to root a phone that mainly tweak the performance by messing with system settings, but for the day to day average user, you do not need to root.
If you want a phone that allows you to do 90% of the things rooting allows you to without having to root, then buy the HTC 10.
I came here to get honest opinions on the htc 10 and what ive seen so far are people trying to convince each other of their choice. Phones these days are almost like politics and religion . i dont know about anyone else but I don't discuss politics nor religion.
any way I love the samsung line and never bought anything else. But ended up with a htc m7. I hated it at first , but then i learned more and fell in love with it. Im hard on phones break at least 2 a year min . from drops and things. that phone lasted 3 years and never quit, never ran out of storage, and much more.
I wont purchase any other line of htc but this one. I know what i need in a phone and that is what makes the winner between the 2 in my eyes. Anyhow im off track. Can someone please explain what rooting is ? in layman terms plz. I dont know what all that technical stuff means. Also is it something i should do on an htc 10? And how to get it?
Anonymous, 10 May 2016Most people rarely use their camera, and if its on a phone the photo is crap tier all the time... moreyou can take really good fotos with a smartphone, maybe you can't? but have some really impressive shots!
Finally got the HTC 10 ,the phone is cool, battery back up is better compared to my old M7 it has enough juice for me to carry on till late night without charging.No lagging no heating issue's observed.The phone looks good on the back but the front view is very bland looks like a low end samsung duos especially the silver color.

I've managed to never sustain water damage on a smart phone since android 2.2.4 when I got my first, I'm betting there are many like me.
I was selling for sprint when the S7 released, i watched 3 of them boot cycle from the first start up.
The super LCD has slightly more mild hues than AMOLED, but its construction greatly reduces glare from light and sun, making it more practically useful, its also higher efficiency
Ass for the "badass" design. Glass is an insulator, metal conducts. HTC stays cooler and cools quicker. Function over form. Also appearances are subjective in quality. I think the HTC looks prettier because they didn't try to hard to make it that way.
My final statement (an opinion)
I use HTC religiously, because as it stands, they are the only phones built well enough to handle running the fancier custom roms. I've killed more than a few galaxies running only CM10 or 12 S3's 4's 5's and I watched my friend kill a six.
I have the M8 still 3 years later no problems. I don't know many people who root and manage to keep Samsungs running more than a year.
Fact is, neither phone is "better" its all about what you do with it.
Htc company is the best phone maker Htc10 is the better phone until now Samsung prices of s7 and s7edge were higher when they were out at the beginning of March Htc is quality and the phone price isn't the same as glass phones like Samsung do always until now I don't know what people like but its simply the best is much aspects You have the satisfaction to hold it in your hand I wish to HTC good luck on saplings and profits because the price deserves on comparison with iphone and S7 s7edge
Sam, 10 May 2016Hahaha. You mentioned about battery life. Please see the real battery life test in below link ... moreLeaving this here !
S7 has a much better camera than htc 10( video was made after software updates so no more excuses ).
S7 is far superior in speed even according to the channel you linked me to.
Sam, 10 May 2016The price of S7 is $670, HTC 10 is $699 and S7 Edge is $780. Which is near HTC 10? Please make... morenot where i live ...
here are prices where I live
S7 Edge : 2299 AED ($625)
HTC 10 : 2394 AED ($651)
actually the s7 Edge is CHEAPER than HTC 10 now.
dont accuse people of lying again.
This year the flagships are in a very tight race.Every manufacturer is powerful and beautiful but if you want balance then HTC 10 is the best.From a beautiful design to a very polished and optimized interface and from a very strong(on par with the others) camera and a very good battery life.The 10 offers you exactly what you need from a device without throwing at you things that you will barely use but there is now way that HTC 10 is something mlke stock and it is giving you lots of features to play with.For example if you want a camera with more real colors and a high res audio DAC ,HTC will provide that for you.

Please see the real battery life test in below link and see which phone has greater battery life. Size of battery is not major issue, the issue is optimization.
You told about much better camera in S7 Edge. its not true. I give 8.5 score to S7 Edge out of 10 and HTC 10 get 8.45 out of 10. though some camera experts says HTC 10 hase better camera in many aspects than S7 edge. Please see the experts review.
You also told about AMOLED. Both LCD and AMOLED has positive and negative side. AMOLED is comparable with make up face which produce over saturated colors and LCD produce more natural colors.
Design is relative measure. Some people like red and some people black. Most of experts says HTC 10 uses best hardware design and also good looking. My personal opinion is S7 edge looks like a plastic toy nothing special.
You also told about Water resistant. HTC 10 also water and dust resistant. Yes S7 edge has IP68 certification and HTC 10 has IP53 certification. S7 edge is more suitable for keeping under water or swimming in a pool. Lol

- better battery life
- much better camera ( even after updates)
- badass design vs. some sort of ugly s5 combined with iphone
- water resistance
I get it. You guys like htc , like muricans love iphones( only God knows why) but for htc10 being on same price with sammy, that is a lost battle
