No Infrared port on this one? Kinda disappoints me as I love to use my HTC m7 as a remote to troll people.
However, Looks like a great phone, and its going to be a great upgrade from my M7. Can't wait till it hits australia

I was waiting for this HTC 10 from last year, previously i used to have the apple products till iPhone 4 and later shifted to Android and for the HTC M7 in 2013 and it impressed me a lot with the ease of the OS. I didnt want to go with the M8 and waited for the M9 but it failed miserably and was long waiting for the 10. I liked the specs but only thing is that it should have water and dust proof like the S7 and wireless charging is a bonus. Little disappointed with these 2 exclusions. Lets wait for the reviews once it comes to the actual world.
if there's a plus/max version of it (>5.7") like htc one max back in the day, i'm getting 3 of it off contract.
Alien, 13 Apr 2016Some are mad cos there's no fm radio. Who listens to radio anymore? I deleted my radio app. O... moreThere is boomsound just different, called hi-fi hi res, you can't have everything, if you have water proofing your speakers will sounds shit add in the S7
Mary, 13 Apr 2016I agree. I'm a full fan of htc and one of the most beautiful characteristic was the hardware. ... morethe first brad who came up with this design and aluminium body was HTC on the M7 - long before Iphone 6. Because of the brand power you consider Apple as the first company doing this... so let's give the credit to HTC.
iny, 13 Apr 2016why on earth will they get rid of IR and the radio?you see, it was a fun gimmick at first but when you think about it, the support for it was horrible and more and more tvs are controlled by wifi and the remote control is much better as the oem had developed it. long story short, gimmick and sh*t support. kek
xvi, 13 Apr 2016They need to move those capacitive/home buttons as close to the screen as possible. This looks... morethere is problem when having the capacitive key very close to the screen: you will always accidentally touch it, especially if you have bigger finger. i have zenfone, its capacitive key is very close to the screen, whenever i typing text or playing games, i always accidentally pressed the back button,recent etc. its annoying. but yeah htc 10 button is kinda too far, they could make it center, but then ppl would likely to say samsung samsung samsung design

I deleted my radio app. O... moreI don't think there is any phone out there with 1 volt hi-fi 3.5mm audio output, clean audio speakers and USB type-c adapter with water resistance. It may clearly be a matter of technical impossibility, so cheer up, will happen one day but I wouldn't exchange these just to go under shower with the phone or in water. I have M9 and works perfect after using it in tough rain or high temperature+umidity.
AnonD-525605, 13 Apr 2016I don't know what to go for- HTC 10 or SGS7 edge. Please help!!!I'm writing this text for not to command you to choose either one of both devices. I will have asked you back whether you are a fashionable user or not. To do so, you would rather choose S7 edge, but if you are not kind of fashionable or showing off lifestyle, I think you would better choose HTC 10. I rest some main advantages of HTC10 compared to S7 edge. 1.Software (near to custom based android firmware)
2. Sound quality (Boom sound technology)
3. Screen and quality of display
4. Build quality and design (unique and solid)
5. New camera system for both front and primary cameras (ultrapixel technology good for low light situation and image detailing.
Above information is just my personal opinion on both devices that I have acknowledged from other developers and reviewers from youtube and browsers.

Quicker android updates
Sense is more fluid than Touchwiz
Durable metal compared to glass
Almost Same rear camera as S7
Front camera OIS
Similar battery life but no wireless charging
Rest all the specs are similar
But Samsung has has better customer service imo.
Samsung design is more refined imo.
Hope this helps.
