Bought this new just a few days ago for $266, came with 7.0 out of the box with one update waiting. For the price I paid, it's a stellar device still in 2017 and will easily satisfy most users in 2018 as well. The camera is great, speed is fluid and audio is very good (speakers are a little low but quality is better than most).
Between this and a new midranger, this is easily the superior choice in every way except battery life, which is only average/adequate but helped with USB C and Quickcharge 3.0. Sadly it's price is still rather high in most places but if you manage to find it at a good price, it's still an excellent buy, that thick metal body is to die for opposed to the industry moving en mass towards glass, which looks nice but isn't as practical.
I think that htc 10 is good smartphone but after 4 months of use suddenly the camera stopped working. How can i say that this smartphone is really a good phone. I am sure that i will never buy this brand again.
Does it have 1080p 60fps or not!? In this review it says both yes and no
I've had my unlocked HTC 10 in the united kingdom for about a month now. Initial findings are that the battery is excellent . My previous phone was a 2013 nexus 5 upgraded to marshmallow 6.0.1 and it lasts over double the time inbetween charges.
Not experienced any lag on any games and it plays games with graphics maxed as smoothly as if they were on lowest setting. Call quality is excellent, screen quality excellent.
Speakers are crisp in sound although not as loud as the ones on my old Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman. Sound in headphones is AAA standard and goes so loud it can make my ears hurt... No need for poweramp to get the most from my phone.
The only downside to this phone is lack of water resistance . It also takes a little getting used to when it comes to finding options hidden in some of the menus but other than that this phone is a true all-rounder with flagship grade specs. It even holds connection to chrome cast better than my nexus 5 even though its not officially on the list of optimised devices for chrome cast. The Wi-Fi connection is stronger too. Anyone who buys this most certainly won't regret it. I just wish the front of mine was black and not white although gold and white isn't too bad I think it's a region based thing.
AnonD-701268, 17 Sep 2017can you tell me how good is the battery life on that phone?The battery life is pretty good. If you know how to use adb, you can stop apps from running in the background. That's the biggest killer of your battery, no matter which android phone you have. In my opinion, this is the best HTC phone out there, I didn't care to upgrade to the U11.
AnonD-701268, 17 Sep 2017can you tell me how good is the battery life on that phone?Battery life is average, in heavy use it only last 12 hours to me (it could be different to you)
Since it's 2K display and high power cpu inside, no surprise~
IMO phones with big battery (at least 4000) usually comes with Middle class CPU and standard Resolution display, in order to fulfill the title of "great endurance phone"
Hope it helps.
I really like this and the Moto z...can someone help me decide what to go with?
Finally got this phone yesterday.
Still a very decent phone in 2017. All Snappy, fantastic multitasking performance.
No bloatware, yet very simple.
Glad that I skipped the m8 and m9
LUMi, 12 Sep 2017Does anybody have the problem with double tap to wake up motion gesture? I cannot get it to wo... moreIt does stop with me too sometimes
But before you blame your phone you have to try :
- restarting your phone
- make sure that the gesture is activated
- your touches have to be firm and recognisable for you phone ( try at the middle of the screen )
Excuse my language

Does anybody have the problem with double tap to wake up motion gesture? I cannot get it to work. I am on the latest Android 7, security patch from August 2017.
andreuwz, 10 Sep 2017Thank you SOOO much Rockstar, for sharing this information. I was wondering if you are from US... moreYW andreuwz! Glad I could help!
Yes, I am from the USA. Chicago area in fact.
I'm sure the one in Europe is just as good as the one here.
I don't know if I'm a "power user", but I do use my phone somewhat frequently. The battery life is very good to great, though I would not say it's #1. But you can do things like disabling or uninstalling unneeded apps, and even temporarily disable Location to help with that. I did that the other day when I went to a concert and the battery life wasn't bad all things considered. I've had the phone since January, so not super long, but enough to say it's been pretty consistent so far.
I can only answer your question about 2G/3G/4G based on my own experiences here in the states andreuwz. For me, the connectivity is EXCELLENT and the phone even comes with VoLTE (Voice Over LTE), which gives it even greater reception and access to the newest and best signals, like Band 12 (aka 700 MHz) spectrum, which for people who have T-Mobile (which I do), you can ONLY get if HTC took the time (and spent the money) to certify it with T-Mobile as they require certification if a phone is to be able to use VoLTE on their network. HTC DID do this on the unlocked HTC 10 (which is what I have), which was a major factor in me switching to them from Sony. Not only does VoLTE give you access to Band 12 here, it also connects calls faster and makes them even clearer as HD Voice is a part of the VoLTE package. You should check to see if VoLTE is available in your country as the unlocked 10 WILL have it included if you do.
Hope this helps!
it's brilliant. So cool and handy. Nothing less than iphone. So fast in process. Great camera
Thank you SOOO much Rockstar, for sharing this information. I was wondering if you are from USA, because i'm from Europe and hope the device quality remains the same. Also are u a poweruser with the phone and as you've said you haven't had any problems with the battery at all. It's life is good as it's always have been?
Oh and one last thing: I was reading about the HTC 10 in a forum and a couple of people said that they had some problems using the 3G, 4G connections. So basically in my country (Bulgaria) the 4G is not on the same level as some west or big european countries and not all zones in the country have good availability and quality.
And so the phone's connection was poor and users reported that the restart was only a temporary option, when the connection is poor battery is also poor and the only solution was to switch for 2G.
Have you heard of that problem. Since the brand is not trustworthy for me i'm currently checking most frequent problems i' ve read in internet, sorry for being annoying or nitpicking.
Thanks in advance, again! :)
