we can not say it as a let down , but kind off, you should note the below points,
the front facing ear-piece acts as a tweeter speaker, and the bottom takes care of woofer kind, and when u slide the mobile into a pocket, if both the speakers are front facing,the phone ringing can get muffled, in such situations the bottom fired speakers helps a lot, i would say this as a rather bold move, and there had been few reviews which I came across which says this is the best unbeatable mobile speakers in the premium segment range, so on the whole I would say this is the best one out there,,,,
AnonD-526130, 14 Apr 2016IR is not that important. It's all about that design. Sometimes they have to make sacrifices. ... moreJust because YOU don't use IR doesn't mean the rest of the world does the same. Different people have different needs. :P
Danny, 14 Apr 2016why does it look like a samsung????Because hTC is really lazy this year with their so called Flagship. 😁
Really!! Excuse.First: SLP No! SPL3 OR Super Lcd 3.
Cons: Not:1.Radio ...
the speakers are really down from HTC m9 which had front facing stereo speakers. anyone with some knowledge will conclude that speakers have been downgraded which as the only reason many of us bought HTC.
Without Bigotry & With Equity :
Pros:1.2K Display (Big Upgrade Than SLP3)
2.Smooth & Shiny Designing.
3.Csmera (Really Hard Work For It's)
4.Touch Home Button.
5.Hi-Res-Audio In Ear Phone.
Pros: 1.Not R.Fm.
2.Not Stereo Speakers.
3.Not Harmony Between Home Button & Phone
The Last Is Dark Point For Designing htc10.
In Total Still Htc 10 Is Desirable.
If they hold true...before the M10 release, they will release the M10v, the M10ae (only in schmukeystan), the M10globe and the HTC Loop. All will look like the M10 but either smaller batteries for emerging markets or a "Metal Like" compound for the back.
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2016Realy disappointing me HTC , for design i better go with m8, m7 if they make old design like m8, you will bash htc with "boring old design, we want new design"
IR is not that important. It's all about that design. Sometimes they have to make sacrifices. And you won't need and IR blaster if you could just keep youreading controller in one place
Had a chat with HTC Guys. They are not sure which model will launch and when it will launch.
But Chances that the Lifestyle with SD 652 will hit India are more...
Hard HTC fan here.very happy with m8 performance except slow charging..hoping to upgrade to 10.
AnonD-95039, 14 Apr 2016My current phone is m8.. Finally i can sell it and replace with this beutiful beast. Thanks HTCbut you need to sacrifice the IR blaster and that water resistance...
Opinions are opinions, be it good or bad. But to those who has no business here, GET LOST!
front looks very nice, although the back looks pretty ugly, they should have kept the camera looking square. Just gonna have to chuck a case on it so it covers the back and so it can sit flat. I hope the vibration doesn't sound as bad as it did on the M8 when placed on its back on a table.
