Just what the hell those designers at HTC had in mind while making this phone?
I used to love the design of HTC M series phones but this device just looks pathetic. The design of M series phones was not only unique but was also an almost perfect combination of looks and functionality, too bad they just ruined it with this new design. Those narrow side bezels are good but why the hell did they do away with the front firing speakers?
If they wanted space for fingerprint sensor they could've opted for similar design formula as on M9+, why to remove a good functional element like stereo speakers for that?
After all those stereo speakers used to give HTC M series devices an absolute edge in terms of audio output volume, sound quality and clarity over its competitors. HTC M series phones were weapon of choice for many corporate officials who use their phones for Skype meetings and other forms of video conferences because of the highly impressive sound quality and clear and high audio output of those speakers. But with this phone they just threw away those good qualities of HTC M series for the sake of a new design.
This phone looks more like a stupid cross between Samsjunk and good old HTC M series, and believe me most of the M series lovers, especially those who are in corporate sectors gonna hate this new design.

True that. They promise us to bring "the best Boomsound yet." Whatever that may turn out to be.
Check HTC One X9 out. It certainly has front stereo speakers.
The S7 had very poor performance in terms of speakers and sound. Poor plastic designing with an over glossy screen. Welcome back HTC.
Make windows version. HTC 10 with Windows 10 mobile. The real #powerof10.
I wish it would use windows 10 mobile so it complement the name. The #thepowerof10.
It seems like it
WLAN Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, hotspot
Bluetooth v4.1, A2DP, apt-X
GPS Yes, with A-GPS, GLONASS
Infrared port Yes
USB v3.0, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector
the thing is, the specs alone does not allow us to fully grasp wat the HTC 10 will be like. And as an ardent HTC fan, the proof is ALWAYS in the pudding! Samsung and the like always has "top class" specs yet when handling the HTC whether high end or not, the phones are TOP! HTC should have a hands-on campaign to "advertise" the real quality...
Anonymous, 06 Apr 2016Ugly back design. I agree. But it looks like just every other m series htc. But man those specs are on point.
Me, 06 Apr 2016This device doesn't have an Infrared Port.Infrared port Yes
MidoNageh, 04 Apr 2016HTC without BoomSound Speakers NOTHING......
I hope they will make Boomsound speakers, I am w... moreHTC recently teased us it will have "the best Boomsound yet." So yeah it will have Boomsound.
However the implementation could be different in that one of the speakers would be bottom firing instead of front firing.
Anyway you say you have the One Max and want to upgrade. But this M10 is considerably smaller with 5.1 inch screen. Are you sure you want it?
Try One X9 too (5.5 inch)
