Yup! I think it's the best phone period if you are talking about overall. The screen is great, the camera is great (after 3 major updates lol), it's very fast, the battery life is very good, the size is nice (hate phablets lol), the phone is very premium in design & looks, the audio............also great, if not the best feature period. I compared it to my old $299 Oppo HA-2 portable premium amp/DAC back in January, and it matched IF NOT outdid the Oppo! I was shocked, but it meant I no longer needed a device in between my phone and headphones anymore, so I sold my old phone and the Oppo, and now I can just connect DIRECTLY to my 10. With Poweramp as my main player app, and a growing assortment of Hi-Res (and CD-Quality) tracks, as well as my Meze 99 Classics headphones (THE BEST!!), I've never had it so good with music listening like I do now!
This article details why the 10 is so impressive on both speakers AND headphones. Definitely skim the words in bold at the very least:
I've become kind of an expert with regards to the whole audio/headphones/Hi-Fi thing over the last few years, so if you are interested in improving ANY aspect of your headphone audio experience, let me know. I'll make sure you get the best gear for the BEST price, and no time or money wasted on BS. (BTW, I'm not a salesman or anything, but you seem really interested in audio quality, so I thought I'd share what I know about it with whoever is interested)

I just checked again and now HTC has removed ALL the other colors and variations of the HTC 10 except for the unlocked 10 in Camellia Red! I thought they would be restocking the other ones, but it looks like if you want a 10 for U.S. you'll have to buy a used one or else a Red one! Crazy!
My father changed his mind and just decided he would just wait until his phone dies. Whatever. lol He doesn't care about audio like I do, so that's not a main concern. I was also looking at the Huawei Honor 8 for him too. It's only $324 on Amazon and is very close in quality to the 10, and arguably has better battery life too than not just the 10 but even the U11! But I guess we'll just wait and see. The phone lately has been taking A LOT longer to recharge, so I'm pretty sure that means it's not gonna last much longer. I got it for him refurbished which I won't be doing again b/c they tend to not last as long as new devices do.
RockStar2005, 27 Jul 2017Sebastian, Agreed on all. The audio on this phone is THE BEST!!!!!!! lolYeahh bro, the audio performance of 10 is superb!.. No phone in world of Android or IOS is perfect, but 10 is perfect for me.. Other than audio, the camera ability is amazing too.. Really satisfied"

I remember the first time when i did unboxing of my 10. I was so impressed by the build quality of it n on top it looks so gorgeous .. Still can't forget that moment ;) ...
N yes i guess you would have to wait for 10 to back in the stock... but by all means the Red colour is also fantastic on 10.. but that all depends on your dad Lol... N One plus 5 is also a good deal you get all top notch specs.. I never owned an One plus so i don't really know about it. Lol ... I only Had Htc, Apple and Samsung smartphones .. Thats it haha ...
But i would still suggest, go for 10 haha coz Htc's Audio and its User experience with Sense UI is just unmatched.... It has the best sound and is very fast and lag free Lol :) ... But in the end, this all depends on your dad preferences .. Haha ;)

Yeah I feel you. I guess I should feel "lucky" that Sprint carries them here, but it should be available EVERYWHERE the way iPhones, LG, and Samsung phones are.
Yeah I'm keeping my 10 for now too. I def am looking forward to see how the 12/U12 looks next year, as I am for the Sony Xperia flagships of 2018 as well. Yeah.........Topaz Gold for me too! It's the best, ain't it? Very classy! lol
My dad wants a new phone and I was all ready to buy him the 10, but now the only one available for use in the U.S. are the ones on HTC.com, and they only have Camellia Red. Have to see if he wants that one, or just wait for Grey or Silver to get back in stock. Or else may just advise him to get the OnePlus 5, which is better in every way (though I prefer non-phabs to phabs lol), esp with battery life and newer processor and more RAM, but the 10 still from reviews I read has the better camera by a good notch. We'll see. Price is not much different if you include tax on 10.

Here in Canada... It really makes me mad that no carrier carries the U11 here. I don't know why Htc has stopped selling through carriers here. Though we can only buy it online through Htc website. lol ...
N yea Htc did really well with the U11... Damn that Red colour on U11 is so stunning. As soon as i saw the it in red colour, it just won my heart right there.
Htc 10 is also another beautifully crafted device from 2016, I love my 10 so far.. I bought it last year June 23rd :) I might also keep my 10 for now... n will go for Htc 12 next year when it comes out... Bdw I have Topaz Gold for Htc 10, Which colour did u choose for it? :)
ADI, 26 Jul 2017Anyone knows! if the camera update for 1080p 60fps video recording option coming to Htc 10 as ... moreNot sure ADI. There's been some debate about updates on here lately. Apparently, in the U.S. we're getting regular updates cuz I get a main system one like once every 2-3 months (JUST got one yesterday too as a matter of fact), where people in other countries like India and I THINK Europe haven't got any in several months. I don't really know what's going on to be honest.
I got a chance to check out the U11 at a Sprint store near me this past Saturday. Sprint is the ONLY U.S. retailer and/or carrier who actually has the U11 in its stores. They had it on display, so I figured I'd go see it. It was actually really nice. Sapphire Blue color was great. Edge Sense was pretty handy too for quickly activating the camera, and with updates I believe you can take a picture by squeezing too? Phone was fast and nice. Speakers were clear and loud as well (they say louder than 10's). Still, I prefer my 10. Matte finish on back is preferred over glossy, and metal body over glass too. Plus I don't like phablets. lol But I'm VERY happy to hear and see that HTC is doing so well with sales for BOTH phones!
Anyone knows! if the camera update for 1080p 60fps video recording option coming to Htc 10 as well? Or is it for only the U11. I really like this 60fps option. I really hope they just don't neglect the their strongest phone of 2016 AKA "Power of 10" Please Don't :( .....

At least they were smarter on how they priced the U11, which I'm sure contributed to why it sold better than the M9 & 10 combined.
Wow ...Thats a great news for HTC... Htc 10 has been sold out on the US and Canadian htc websites after the discount sale.. LOL .. Shows Htc is improving well ;)
Gino76, 25 Jul 2017Thanks for that. But my other concern is the UX seems a bit skinned and HTC seem to be trying ... moreGino,
The UI you mean? Man, Sony and HTC have like THE BEST UIs on Android after the Google phones. I mean they are IMO the LEAST infested with bloatware, and have the BEST and most simplest Settings menus IMO vs. LG or ESPECIALLY Samsung. Samsung is a lil better now on that front, but they STILL have that LAGGY TouchWiz garbage UI and the Settings menu still make you think harder to find things than you should have to.
Regarding battery life, Phone Arena compared the two and found that the HTC 10 has a battery life of 7 hrs and 10 min, where the S7 came up a little shorter at 6 hrs and 37 minutes. So once again, HTC outdoes (overrated) Samsung. lol Even the newer phones from each have the same results. The HTC U11's battery life is rated at 9 hours and 3 min, while the S8+ is rated 8 hrs even, with the S8 only being about 20 min better. The U11 also has a better camera (first time for HTC vs. Samsung, though I'd take the 10's camera over the S8's anyday b/c of better color accuracy) too.
Hope that helps.

But my other concern is the UX seems a bit skinned and HTC seem to be trying too hard to be "different" from other OEMs. I'm also concerned about the battery life having rated a lot less than the S7.

Sure no problem!
Well for the most part you should be fine with the 10. Drizzle is nothing. Dropping it in the sink depends on if there's water already there and if you got water coming out of the faucet. That is a little more risky. For me, I don't use my phone near the sink unless it's off, so it's not a problem. If you're willing to do that then you should have NO issues at all.
RockStar2005, 23 Jul 2017Gino, If it's just droplets, I'm gonna guess no. I think the issue is the PRESSURE of wate... moreThank you for explaining that to me. Coz you hear about IP-rating this and that and these companies never actually explain to you directly and then they envoke the warranty terms to you and then you're done for. With all 6 years of owning an Android phone the worse my phone can come in contact with water is using it whilst on a drizzly day or accidentally dropping it in the sink for a second or two. Because of those factors (and having lost three phones in a span of two years) I need a phone that has some sort of water ingress protection for my confidence.
