I don't know about HTC doing "so well", but they are doing alright. They would be doing better if they marketed more in the U.S. and lowered their prices. The U 11 is actually available for a lower than usual price, so I think they ARE actually doing that finally!
Yeah the U Ultra was a complete waste of time by HTC.
Yeah the U 11 is what the U Ultra should've been. It's superior in EVERY way to the U Ultra AND cheaper too! Yeah U 11 is nice, though I still like the 10 more overall, including looks.
The U 11 is cool to me except: 1) Too big. I prefer non-phablet phones. 2) I don't like that they removed the 3.5mm headphone jack because that means you HAVE to use the included 3.5mm to USB-C adapter for audio (the adapter INCLUDES the great DAC and amp the 10 had built into itself). HTC claims the speakers on the U 11 sound louder because of the removal of that headphone jack, but I don't care. They should've just kept it. The 10's speakers are loud enough. 3) Glass back means you HAVE to use a case basically, unlike the 10 with the metal back. I don't want to use cases anymore. Tired of them. Even the clear ones mask the phone's good looks. 4) Speakers.........HTC needs to go back to Classic BoomSound with front-facing STEREO speakers!
Also...........1) Use a bigger battery for better battery life 2) Make a virtual fingerprint sensor like Apple and Samsung are for the iPhone 8 and Note 8.
Yeah I'm not a fan of Samsung. They ARE getting better and better though, but I still have my issues with them. One thing that's apparent is they don't seem to care much about sound quality. I DO, so that's a big problem for me. Also I don't care for their oversaturated Super AMOLED screens either, and their Settings menu is better now than S5's but still confusing. Their UI STILL lags too, where HTC and Sony's phones are fluid and quick. I would like to see HTC go "18:9" with the U 12 next year though. One thing HTC is bad at (Sony isn't though) is inner design. They waste a lot of space on the inside, which is why their phones are bigger than they need to be. For Samsung, I DO like Samsung Pay though. Was cool on my old S7 to have that, but that phone was overrated. Couldn't wait to get rid of it (after 4 mos).

RockStar2005, 31 May 2017
Oh ok. That sux, but at least you can still use the 10 for the most part. For one... moreThat's very gud to hear about htc 10 that htc is doing so well despite of their current low reputation in the market. . Their efforts are always gud. . .
And about u ultra....mmm....it may be a gud device but i never liked it ....initially... Bcoz i think the realease timing of this device was the worst..... But then reviews proved it is not that bad device as people and i thought....
Yes jio is providing volte and even hd calls over the network for the most cheap rates among all carriers....
Its so damn cheap....
And for u11.... When i heard it is just successor of u ultra i was so disappointed...*(on that time i didn't liked u ultra and never saw it live other tham photos ,images)
But when i saw u 11 's videos and reviews on YouTube about sound and everything (and believe me i saw almost All the reviews just to see the device again and again)
God..... Then i realized this is one of the most beautiful phone in the smartphone history (my personal opinion)
And everything that was saif about the device is good... No body could say a single bad things about the device unless they really wanted to... Everybody loved it's every feature...
And i loved it too. So mch..
My next dream device...
P.s.- i saw in ur previous comment....u mentioned about sony and lg as option... And not samsung...
Me ...also never considered them as an option...😁
AnonD-264433, 31 May 2017Yes i m from india... And htc already said they wont provide volte support for htc 10...
Oh ok. That sux, but at least you can still use the 10 for the most part. For one of the newer bands (Band 12, aka 700MHz), T-Mobile actually REQUIRES that phone companies get certified with them or else the phone won't be able to utilize VoLTE (which includes HD Voice). The issue there for me is that if VoLTE isn't available, T-Mobile won't allow the phone to use Band 12. So if I'm in an area that let's say ONLY gets Band 12 and not the other main bands (which are 2 & 4 for me), then I won't be able to make or take a call. So for me, it's an issue. Not sure how it is there though? But because of that, I'm doing everything I can to make sure the phones I get are T-Mobile certified. HTC OFFICIALLY certified the unlocked 10 with T-Mobile, so I'm GOOD to go there fortunately.
Yeah the U Ultra I don't think HTC certified with T-Mobile. The U 11 I think it might but I am not assuming anything until I get confirmation. But I'm not buying it anyway cuz I like my 10 better, so I guess it doesn't really matter anyway.
I see. Well I'm glad Jio brought VoLTE there cuz that's good to have. It makes calls you make connect faster and have both a stronger connection and improves reception too I believe.
Yeah if U 11 gets VoLTE and 10 doesn't, then I can't argue that that's a good reason to buy it. The U 11 doesn't have the awesome DAC and amp inside of it like the 10 did. Instead, it's the ADAPTER that comes with it that has all that. So to get the BEST sound quality, you have to be using that adapter (3.5mm to USB-C). So far, I've confirmed the amp is very strong like the 10's, and the sound quality I've read is great too, though I'm still waiting for more detailed reviews on that front. Still, it has the great camera, 835 processor means MUCH faster data connections than what the 820 offers, 2K screen, Edge Sense, etc.
There's a Sprint store by me, so I may go check out the U 11 when it gets released next Friday (June 9th). Not to buy, but to check it out and hopefully get to try Edge Sense too. Sprint is the ONLY U.S. carrier that's officially selling the locked version of the phone. For all the rest we have to buy the unlocked version. I think that's dumb but whatever. HTC and Sony can't expect to ever really do well here w/o full major carrier support. Sprint is the WORST one of the major 4 carriers, so going with them is ok but not the best move. At least the unlocked versions work with the other 3, but it's still dumb.
Haha yes!! HTC is AWESOME!!!!
ADI, 31 May 2017True :) ... I love the audio in 10, Its just mind blowing :) ... What do u like the most in 10... moreADI,
Yes it is! What do I like the most? Honestly, the audio. LOL Like NO other non-phablet phone has this level of quality with the audio, so that makes the 10 stand out BIG TIME to me! Other than that, I LOVE how HTC FINALLY got the camera right (or at least ON PAR with other top flagships), the 2K screen, the decent to go (but not necessarily great) battery life, the premium design, etc.
I have the Unlocked 10 as well. I just got another major updater a few weeks ago, so not sure on you. My current Software # is 2.48.617.1.

Besides a great camera, it's got a nice 2K screen, very fast and fluid UI, MicroSD card, sweet premium looks (I got the Topaz Gold one), it also has audio and call quality which is SUPERIOR to other phones.
I am Gonna Buy this one. I am using Facebook,messenger,whatsapp,viber only.. What about battery life? Howmany hours i can use this then?

India? Ok. I'm in the U.S. NOT ONLY do the locked HTC 10s here have VoLTE, but even the unlocked ones do too, even with T-Mobile. HTC actually got the 10 certified with T-Mobile for VoLTE on their unlocked 10s when most companies don't bother. That was a major factor in me choosing the 10 over other phones by Sony and LG. So for me it's the opposite. I only care about having 1 SIM not 2, so that was not an issue for me.
Yeah maybe get the U 11 then when the price comes down. Here I'm not sure if HTC certified it with T-Mobile for VoLTE or not (T-Mobile here REQUIRES this certification or else VoLTE won't show up as an option in the Settings menu).
V20 is cool but yeah I'd rather have 10 cuz I don't care for phablets/big phones either.

I'm sure it will work fine. A boot loop issue on random phones is one thing, but when it happens to the extent that customers are filing a class action lawsuit, then that's another story. lol I hope LG will fix this on the V30.
I was almost on the edge of buying htc10...but only hold myself for single sim and no volte.support... Bcoz right now I have dual sim phone without volte... And i feel it should be in my phone as option...
Finally went for lg v20 bcoz it has almost same audio credentials as htc 10....i dont like big phones but didn't have other options....
But this is just a break....
I m an htc lover....u11 is not realeased here in india...will wait for price cut....i m a budget concerned person...cant cross 35 38 k rs mark...
will buy u11 for later this year or next year....

HTC 10 all the way True!
It's superior in every way...........camera, battery life, AUDIO, looks (premium metal body), etc. So really all the main stuff. Check out this article about why the audio is so great. I'd compared it to my old $299 Oppo HA-2 premium amp/DAC, and it MATCHED (if not outdid) it in sound quality AND volume on headphones. Speakers are loud too. I was floored b/c my previous Sony phone didn't sound as good as Oppo and 10. So I sold my Sony and Oppo devices and kept the 10. Now I just carry around one device (my 10) when listening on headphones, not 2. So much nicer.

It was really a new sealed device not refurbished or repaired. I had some scratches on my previous HTC 10, but this one was perfect. I love HTC's replacement policy....! The camera is amazing as it was and I have to perform a bunch of software updates...including nougat.
