dude if waterproofing is a very important thing for u then go for s7, otherwise i bet that all the things that are going to matter to you are better in HTC10 plus samsung touchWIZ is just no match for HTC senseUI (note series S-PEN and its uses excluded). Believe me i have used mostly samsung in the past galaxyW, s3, note3, note4. s6(didnt buy M9 coz of SD810) BUT HTC one M8 is the one i loved the most out of them all (even LG G pro 2 gave better user experience than Samsung). And HTC10 is way way better than M8.
BUT SIMPLY PUT, U HAVE TO OWN IT TO FEEL THE DIFFERENCE.
ok this is difinitely not the best smartphone out there this year i was hoping for something original from htc this year but instead we get a copy cat of an iphone and a galaxy s or nexus smartphone
AnonD-374579, 17 Apr 2016M9 had MegaPixel, and 10 has UltraPixel, go and study both, in short it means 12x4=36MegaPixelsMy goodness 12x4 =48.
Does not matter though 12 megapixels is 12 ultrapixels just bigger pixel just as 12 oranges are 12 oranges. All they have done is given you 12 megapixels but made pixels bigger to absorb more light which is good.
My fave phone last year was M9 but could not stand camera quality . Using iPhone se at moment but it is going back because it does work but its boring,I am bored after few days. Next phone is this M10 going to skip G5 now .
thwinoo, 17 Apr 2016I wouldn't say this is the best phone of 2016. -LG has removable batt. innovative cameras,etc... moreI agree with you, I have a galaxy s7 edge, owned a xperia z3 before, I miss some featuresin it, but seriously, Sony isn't even trying, go for the s7 edge, it has bigger screento body ratio, and the edge screen is quite useful good camera, battery life, and the screen is awsome... but it has quad HD display for somereason, same for the m10, dumb move from htc
AnonD-526821, 17 Apr 2016How is the camera quality when compared to s7?
12 MP, f/1.8, 26mm, OIS, laser autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash HTC
12 MP, f/1.7, 26mm, phase detection autofocus, OIS, LED flash S7
1/2.3'' sensor size, 1.55µm pixel size, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama HTC
1/2.6" sensor size, 1.4 µm pixel size, geo-tagging, simultaneous 4K video and 9MP image recording, touch focus, face/smile detection, Auto HDR, panorama S7
2160p@30fps, 1080p@60fps, 720p@120fps, HDR, stereo sound rec. HTC
2160p@30fps, 1080p@60fps, 720p@240fps, HDR, dual-video rec. S7
5 MP, f/1.8, 23mm, OIS, autofocus, 1.34 µm pixel size, 1080p, HDR HTC
5 MP, f/1.7, 22mm, dual video call, Auto HDR S7
I wouldn't say this is the best phone of 2016.
-LG has removable batt. innovative cameras,etc.
-S7/S7 edge have CRAZY fastest focus camera, waterproof, wireless charging, etc.
-HTC 10 has best body built quality (all metal) , best Audio quality, best UI, etc.
One has better features that the other one doesnt have....
Can't go wrong with either one.
I am neither attacking nor defending any brands... I am HTC die hard fan since Sensation series... But might choose s7 edge over HTC 10 (still thinking between 10 and S7edge).
Anonymous, 17 Apr 2016Gimmicks? THe HTC 10 is a great phone but certainly not the best of 2016.Htc 10 is the best phone of 2016

The camera quality depends on sensor size, aperture, lens etc. M9 used 20 mp camera and HTC 10 uses only 12 mp camera. But HTC 10 camera is far far better than m9 camera.
All are speaking on assumptions, no body has bought and uploaded video pics and internal memory. Not real comparison by gsmarena. Don't be whistle blower yourself.

G Simmer, 17 Apr 2016If this were waterproof, it would easily be the best phone on the market.It has a Little waterproofing, like IP53 Or something like that ;)
AnonD-374579, 17 Apr 2016M9 had MegaPixel, and 10 has UltraPixel, go and study both, in short it means 12x4=36MegaPixelsBullshit, 12UP is the Same as 12MP, but the Pixels are bigger because there are less Pixels on the Same size Sensor so they catch more light and Image quality is better
