I recently splashed water on my HTC 10
And water fell on the front speaker
I cleaned it within 5 seconds
The 10 is IP53 certified
So do I need to worry about something

Yeah it IS excellent. The U 11 has pros and cons as I mentioned. Just up to the person if they like it more than the 10. I don't. lol Overall anyway, which is why I'm keeping my 10 for AT LEAST another year. Maybe even 2 if nothing stellar comes out?

My G5 is also paired at times with a Samsung gear s3 and it still has excellent battery life.
I do think though that the htc10 is a excellent phone what with its brilliant build quality and sound and customisation and I do hope the htc u 11 carries on that Htc tradition of well made smartphones.

Yeah same here! Even one day is pushing it with my 10. What is it with newer phones these days? They don't have the battery life that phone did a few years ago? I think it's cuz of this idiotic push to make phones as THIN as possible. Even with these newer processors, the batteries just aren't "there" yet in terms of longer life. So what do they do? They make them smaller to fit in the thinner phones. Thumbs DOWN! lol
Really? On here it says the 10 has a longer battery life (not just size) than the G5. Do you have as many apps on the G5 as the 10??
The 10 has the same double-tap feature too, though not to sleep, only to wake. Go under Settings to Gestures and enable it there. What sux is though if you have a lockscreen enabled, the double-tap doesn't really work well cuz u still have to unlock the screen too, so it's double the work. Oh well! lol
Hmm I dunno. The U 11 will have the better camera and also yeah dual speakers. Plus the 835 chip vs. the 821 of the G6. Up to you. All have their pros and cons, including the S8.

Yeah I agree on the battery life. It's pretty good, but could be better. Surel... moreThe HTC10 is definitely not a two days battery life phone,well not for a heavy user like myself and I have tried to even get a simple day out of mine but I just can't do it.
My G5 on the other hand has amazing battery life even though the battery is smaller and I guess lg have there phones better optimised than HTC but there's also other little things that makes the G5 my favourite phone like the double tap on and off for the screen and the always on display is invaluable.
I am currently torn between the htc u 11 and lg g6 and Samsung s8 plus as my next flagship but I am more swayed towards the lg g6 tonight now though I admit.
I wish the lg g6 had the speakers of this Htc phone and also the software customisation of it to,then it would be the perfect phone for me personally.

Yeah I agree on the battery life. It's pretty good, but could be better. Surely not the "2 days" that HTC claims though. lol
There's pros & cons to the U 11 vs. the 10. For me, the 10 is still the better choice. But if you like a larger screen (I don't lol) and a slightly better camera, then yeah it's cool. Edge Sense seems kinda neat too.

I do think my next flagship will be the htc u 11 because I do love the larger screen it's got and hopefully it will have good battery life.

There's a BIG difference b/t having a phone go bad and having a LARGE number of phones go bad. The odds are in your favor. I'm not saying that nothing will happen for sure, I'm saying don't get the S7 Edge. F Samsung! LOL I had the S7 Edge for 2 weeks and S7 for 4 mos. Overrated. The 10 is MUCH cooler! And the camera takes MORE color accurate pics too.
I've had my phone FIVE MONTHS now and have had Nougat I think since I got the phone, and I haven't had ANY boot loop issues, or issues period.
I recommend you check out the Wakey app (icon is a light bulb) on Play Store btw. The one thing my HTC phone doesn't have is the feature like ALL other phones have (sometimes called "Smart Screen") which is to have an "eye" on you (front camera) that knows when you're looking at the screen so it doesn't turn it off while you're like reading an article or something. Get that app and enable "FaceWake" (a feature I worked on with the dev himself via e-mail ((never met him)) to create). I do not work for or have ANY financial affiliation with the dev. I just LOVE this app and it made the 10 COMPLETE to me. Check it out if that sounds good to you. (You can also use "AppWake" on it if you simply want Wakey to keep the screen on for CERTAIN apps until you turn off the screen.)
Hope that helps!

This is my 5-th HTC phone. Excellent phone! I used to have HTC One M8 but this on is much better. I think that is the best HTC I ever had. I'm using it since November. I love the premium feeling, the power processor, the new USB jack and the excellent sound quality.
I would be happy if the phone was a little bit thinner and the camera was a little bit better.
RockStar2005, 20 May 2017No I haven't. I got mine in January and it's been working FANTASTICALLY since!
I HAVE read... moreI bought one HTC 10 at the end of December 2016, it had been working fine but since April,..the soft keys of my device stopped working and when I restarted...it was stuck in boot loop and never booted, just restarts at the HTC logo.
I sent it for warranty and they replaced it with a new device after a month. But I'm afraid if boot loop issue will happen again because it's difficult to sent back for warranty as its bought from another country. :(
My options are to sell this device since its a sealed pack.....exchange this device with s7 edge or to use this device hoping that boot loop will not happen.
I really like HTC but boot loop is a let down.
Any users here who have used HTC 10 without any issues for more than 3 months after the nougat update ??
jeraldsm, 20 May 2017Has anyone faced any boot loop issues with HTC 10 device ?? No I haven't. I got mine in January and it's been working FANTASTICALLY since!
I HAVE read and heard however about LG having boot loop issues with MULTIPLE models of their phones, INCLUDING the comparable LG V20. LG said they're working on it, but for now, I wouldn't advise getting one of their phones. Might as well get the 10 instead! lol
ADI, 20 May 2017Thank you rockstar... I appreciate it :)
Sure no problem ADI!
ADI, 20 May 2017Does anyone have Htc 10 in Red? I love that colour :)Not that I know of. But you can still BUY the unlocked Camelia Red 10 on HTC.com. I'd wait a little longer though cuz I think when the U 11 is released in early June the price of the 10 will go down for sure. Up to you though. Just make sure your carrier is GSM-based (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc) and NOT CDMA-based (Verizon, Sprint). Unlocked ONLY works on GSM networks (I have T-Mobile so it's fine for me).
Mr Grey, 15 May 2017Maybe the 835 will help with battery life indeed with the htc u 11 but yeah the bigger screen ... morePer GSM Arena, looks like the U 11 has slightly less talk time than the 10. Ughh!! lol
And the U 11 has a glass-back?? Special glass, yes, but still glass. Ughh!!! lol
Priced at $649.......nice! IP67......nice!! Camera got a 90 (highest mobile device score EVER).........NICE!!
Yeah we'll see what the reviews say. I dunno if I'm gonna upgrade my 10 though. Most likely not...............b/c of glass back and also phablet size & apparently less battery life.

But I'd be... moreMaybe the 835 will help with battery life indeed with the htc u 11 but yeah the bigger screen might cancel that out though and I understand you would not use the always on display if there was one on the phone,each to there own as the saying goes.
I am excited to see what the htc u 11 will bring to the table with the current line of flagships and maybe Htc will get it right this time but they must price it absolutely right or it will be doomed from launch.
I have had the m7,m8,m9 and the htc 10 so I am a Htc fan but I have also had the lg G3,G4,G5,V10 because I like how lg does things with there software and I am interested in getting a G6 or V20 or something else at the moment but I do look forward to seeing how the htc u 11 will turn out,maybe just maybe it could be my next daily driver,?
Mr Grey, 15 May 2017We will find out indeed but I would like the htc u 11 to have a bigger battery than the HTC 10... moreI'm with you on the U 11 having a bigger battery, but Always On I could do without. But I'd be fine if it was an OPTION on the U 11, just so long as the user can still disable it as I would. lol
Yeah they're saying the 835 will help with that, but the U 11 also has a bigger screen. So I dunno if it will help much.
