Sam, 12 Apr 2016priced at £569! too much HTC!Its £512 in the UK if you pre-order for all those complaining about price - about the price of an iPhone 6s with 16gig ram (and Apple dont discount).
Samsung was discounting the 7 within days of release and it is going for £600-800 depending on how dumb you are.
HTC won't get my money again. Ever since M7, I wanted to get one, but one aspect of the stupid design prevented me from buying one. I thought this one would be the one, but looking at the picture, I don't like where they place the finger scanner. It too low on the bottom edge. The bazel on top and bottom look proportion, yet why not place the scanner center on the bazel just like the ear speaker. It just looks too ugly for me. I don't like the capacitive button either. For the same reason, I don't buy samsung's phone. As for the the band on the back top and bottom are proportional. I still could live with it because I don't see it. But as for the front, the finger scanner placement alone is what cause HTC to lose a sale.
Sabrina201, 12 Apr 2016Lets not forget that the iphone copied the design from HTC firstapple made it look good though and it became their "signature look"... htc shouldn't have stuck with this look
Altema, 12 Apr 2016It's an M7 with chamfered edges. Metal back with antenna bands which HTC revealed on February ... moreyou are perfectly right, having M9 here I am waiting to see what 10 brings to the table; I got the phone because I liked the design more than M8's; using also some Grado SR325is headphones with it and feels awesome; tried them with Samsung S6, Note3, all late iPhones, Lg's (not V10 though) and neither even came close to the sound quality of M9; if jump to 10 is so big (as it seems already) I will get it for sure, can't wait
I want this phone. Unfortunately I also need to add new USB-C cables as I currently use around 3-4 for the M9 adding all charging situations.

It's an M7 with chamfered edges. Metal back with antenna bands which HTC revealed on February 19, 2013 in New York and London. The iPhone 6 had a similar design and was revealed on September 9, 2014. Apple and HTC have agreements between them, which may or may not be related to the metal back with antenna lines.
Either way, the HTC 10 is far less likely to be mistaken for an iPhone than the HTC A9.
The big news, for many, is camera. I was hoping it would at least be decent, but I was not expecting it to be suddenly sharing the number one spot on the Dxomark ratings. Now granted, Dxomark rating only highlights the technical abilities of a camera, and are not the be-all end-all (we have real world usage for that!). However, it does tell us that it is technically good, and the early reviews seem to back that up. Who would have thought that an HTC camera would be sitting on top of Mount Everest sharing a hot thermos of coffee with the Galaxy S7?
As someone who puts phones through the ringer as a part of my job as an engineer, I can lay out some basics about the internals: The battery life will be good. HTC claims 2 days, and in light of the M8 battery tests for which I have the data sheet for, the 10 doing two days with moderate use is on target. We typically got 1.5 days on the M8 with "I don't care" usage, and 2 days in moderate use, and the M8 has a smaller 2,600 mAh battery. Performance will be slightly better than other phones with the exact same SOC, because HTC has always done a bit better, even without cheating ;)
Audio wise, I'll have to hear it. I will miss having stereo in my face when playing games and watching movies, but for people that set their phone down and expect it to fill the room, the subwoofer will be nice. From the headphone jack, it will be very good, and I'm interested if it can unseat the M8, which is still king of the hill after two years (the LG V10 came close). I have the full spreadsheets listing all the top phones, so it will be easy to see when the HTC 10 testing is complete. For those of you that have not experienced HTC with a set of good headphones, and who do not plan on getting one, I suggest that you don't try them out if you have a "normal" phone. It will ruin you. I own four iPhones including the iPhone 6, and I can't listen to music on them anymore.
HTC profits are not doing well, so how are we gonna reduce the manufacturing costs? Yeah let's remove the IR blaster that costs $1! Smart move HTC, congrats to your "lab"!
Thickness 9mm For htc 10 Is Right! But Htc 10 Have Two Speakers & 3.5mm Jack Input. More Thickness Not Important For Me.Just New BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition Speakers, It's Very Much Important 4Me.
Nick, 12 Apr 2016Because people can use radio app nowsaday to listen worldwide channels.Streaming radio apps destroy battery life especially when using mobile data. I have a galaxy s6 and use tune in radio pro, it uses about 20% battery per hour. On my z3 compact 4 hours of fm radio uses about 15% battery. It's nice to have the option! Htc a9 has fm radio, as does LG G5, Sony z5, Huawei P9 as well as most midrange handsets.
Please tell me why should i upgrade from the one M8 To this M10 look at it (9mm) couldn't you make it slimmer and the finger print is waaay down why and if you compare it to the new galaxy s7 edge its the same evvery thing GPU same Ram same Chips same same same and and the Galaxy S7 managed to put all of these in a curved screen model with (7.7mm) so what is that ??? so my next upgrade unfortunately will be SAMSUNG GALAXY S7 EDGE and believe it or not i am saying that and im very sad coz htc didn't do something to make us hold on in this time and in the Android market all fights are legal so you should have been more solid than that HTC and maybe you M11 will mach what we expect and for those who dont have a high end mobiles sure the one m10 is amazing for you but for upgraders like me no chance :(
Yes it has BoomSound dual stereo speakers. One front firing tweeter by the ear piece and one down firing woofer on the bottom of the device.
