Wow ...Thats a great news for HTC... Htc 10 has been sold out on the US and Canadian htc websites after the discount sale.. LOL .. Shows Htc is improving well ;)
Gino76, 25 Jul 2017Thanks for that. But my other concern is the UX seems a bit skinned and HTC seem to be trying ... moreGino,
The UI you mean? Man, Sony and HTC have like THE BEST UIs on Android after the Google phones. I mean they are IMO the LEAST infested with bloatware, and have the BEST and most simplest Settings menus IMO vs. LG or ESPECIALLY Samsung. Samsung is a lil better now on that front, but they STILL have that LAGGY TouchWiz garbage UI and the Settings menu still make you think harder to find things than you should have to.
Regarding battery life, Phone Arena compared the two and found that the HTC 10 has a battery life of 7 hrs and 10 min, where the S7 came up a little shorter at 6 hrs and 37 minutes. So once again, HTC outdoes (overrated) Samsung. lol Even the newer phones from each have the same results. The HTC U11's battery life is rated at 9 hours and 3 min, while the S8+ is rated 8 hrs even, with the S8 only being about 20 min better. The U11 also has a better camera (first time for HTC vs. Samsung, though I'd take the 10's camera over the S8's anyday b/c of better color accuracy) too.
Hope that helps.

But my other concern is the UX seems a bit skinned and HTC seem to be trying too hard to be "different" from other OEMs. I'm also concerned about the battery life having rated a lot less than the S7.

Sure no problem!
Well for the most part you should be fine with the 10. Drizzle is nothing. Dropping it in the sink depends on if there's water already there and if you got water coming out of the faucet. That is a little more risky. For me, I don't use my phone near the sink unless it's off, so it's not a problem. If you're willing to do that then you should have NO issues at all.

Coz you hear about IP-rating this and that and these companies never actually explain to you directly and then they envoke the warranty terms to you and then you're done for. With all 6 years of owning an Android phone the worse my phone can come in contact with water is using it whilst on a drizzly day or accidentally dropping it in the sink for a second or two. Because of those factors (and having lost three phones in a span of two years) I need a phone that has some sort of water ingress protection for my confidence.
John, 24 Jul 2017Guys suggestions from Htc 10 vs Sony Xperia xz vs moto z vs Op3t vs lg v20. ThanksHTC 10. lol See my previous posts for more info.

Gino76, 23 Jul 2017That's cool. But I have another question. It may be IP-protected (slightly) but what if drople... moreGino,
If it's just droplets, I'm gonna guess no. I think the issue is the PRESSURE of water. If you drop a few droplets on the speakers (or etc holes) and it gets in there, per IP 53, it should still be fine. But when you shoot water at it from like a garden hose, or if you drop it in say a pool (esp a deep pool), the pressure is gonna FORCE the water in more, and then the chances of it getting water damaged go up significantly. So again, my answer is no with 99% certainty.
Depending on when you bought your 10 and from where, you may or may not have Uh-Oh Protection. If you do, you can get it replaced for free if it DOES get water damaged or the screen cracks (no questions asked). If you bought your 10 more than a month or so ago and it was purchased directly from HTC.com (U.S. only), then you HAVE Uh-Oh Protection as I do (I bought mine off HTC.com in January). But about a month ago they stopped it for the 10 as the U11 was released. So if you answered "no" to either question, you don't have it.
RockStar2005, 23 Jul 2017 Hey Gino, That is 100% true! Read this article to verify.............................. ... moreThat's cool. But I have another question. It may be IP-protected (slightly) but what if droplets of water enters the speakers, headphone jack or USB port? Would that be dangerous?

Rafe Firmani, 21 Jul 2017hi Rockstar!
if there's one person left on htc10 page I believe it would be you, Pal.. lol
... moreHey Rafe!
Yeah I've read numerous reviews saying the audio on the U11 is better than the 10, esp on the speakers. Is the headphone audio better too? I wasn't 100% sure on that.
Hopefully you find it in Solar Red soon. The U.S. HTC site has it, so you may wanna check there, but then you gotta pay for shipping probably. Or else eBay? Might be cheaper on eBay.
The Sprint Store by me has the U11 (Sprint is the ONLY U.S. carrier that has it in their stores). I just confirmed that, so gonna try to go check it out sometime soon. I won't be buying it though cuz I hate phablets, plus I prefer having the 3.5mm port, and also I prefer the look of the 10 over the U11's. Still, the U11 is a great phone with the BEST camera out there! Who would've thought 2 years ago that I'd be saying that now about an HTC phone?! lol Also, I like that with Edge Sense you can take pictures using only ONE hand instead of two. I take it with one, but it's awkward cuz have to hold it a certain way and stretch my thumb to get to the shutter button icon. lol Edge Sense "squeeze to take a photo" is more convenient. Hopefully they keep Edge Sense in future HTC flagships.
This eBay seller has it in 6GB/128GB Solar Red, and ships worldwide too. You should go for it if not too much $$.......... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Solar-RED-HTC-U11-with-best-spec-6G-RAM-Fastest-128G-ROM-DxOMark-best-camera-/322604334772?hash=item4b1cb77eb4:g:6S4AAOSwQYVZcXK9
Well let me know how the U11 is when you finally get it. I'll probably keep my 10 for another year until the U12/12 is released, then make a decision. I MAY also go back to Sony IF they ACTUALLY get their act together, which they seem to slowly be doing. We'll see. lol
No update, not even security on my EU model since Jan 2017. Rather poor show.

that phone is fantastic, and the audio is even better than the best, htc10 I mean lol.
I've got the 6/128 version. That's for asia only unfortunately.
I'm still looking for the solar red version, soon!
In the mean time, htc10 is still my daily driver but going to pass it on to my wife lol.
Cheers mate! (:
Is there any update software fixing lens flares on HTC 10 (street light, etc...in low light situation) until now, guys? please let me know
Sunnatul Jihad, 16 Jul 2017How is the headpone sound quality of htc10?Any one tell me?Top notch, clarity and loudness is just about as good if not best on any smartphone.

The headphone quality of the 10 is FANTASTIC!! I even prefer it to the LG V20's (because it gets even louder, though quality is the same). This article talks a lot more about it. Pay close attention to the headphone section and especially the emboldened parts.
