Just a HTC M9 user, 19 Apr 2017I live in Australia and Sony is NOT popular here at all, HTC here is okay and very welcomed, B... moreM9,
Australia? Oh ok. Cool. Not sure if Uh-Oh Protection is offered there......it doesn't appear to be based off my quick visit to your country's HTC site. Oh well. lol Just stick with private phone insurance like I do/did. Look up Worth Ave. Group on Google. They are based here in the US. Not sure if they will cover int'l, but maybe? You can e-mail them and ask. Or see if there are any private phone insurers in Australia.
Interesting. Sounds like the same here. Sony isn't well known here at all for phones. TVs and Playstation, yes. lol
Dodgy? Yeah, stay away from those. lol I also owned the M8, my sister had the M9. Loved my M8!
Yeah Apple has gotten better but I still prefer the higher level of freedom you get from Android. And yes, after having owned the S5 AND the S7 (4 days on S5, 4 mos on S7 lol), I will prob never go back to Samsung. lol But they are improving on things I had issues with before with the S8/S8+ reviews I've been reading, but they still have a ways to go IMO, ESP with audio. lol The S7 was a MASSIVE disappoint on audio, and the S8 sounds to be the same from what I've read. Even call quality is still bad they say vs. HTC & Sony.
That's cool! Sounds good man. If the 11/U's USB-C port HAS "analog over USB", I will recommend to ppl and maybe even get it myself, but if not, then no. It must also have the same KILLER DAC & amp (both dedicated, not integrated, ftw) that the 10 had too. I'm sure I'll get my answer soon. I'm what you call an "Audiophile LITE" lol, so I do care about that stuff. I don't buy Hi-Res music and premium headphones (AKG K551, which sounds the same as the highly-rated K550) to have my phone F with my sound quality! lol
Let me know how you like the 10 when you get it. Here I see they dropped the price from $599 to $499, but I read somewhere it's just for this week. When the U comes out it will prob drop again, though it may not happen right away. My advice would be to buy it now if you can get it at the lower price.
ADI, 19 Apr 2017Thank you.... I will definitely download it. This sounds awesome bdw.. I just like 10 the way ... more
Ok great! You're welcome!!
Yes me too. Love it!! Glad you're happy with your new 10 too.

Yeah you should. I think I said in my earlier post that they just lowered the price ... moreI live in Australia and Sony is NOT popular here at all, HTC here is okay and very welcomed, But under the sales of Apple and Samsung of course, and maybe under LG too..Huawei..not too sure. All I know is HTC is by far my favourite company so far, good quality too!..Except my M9 which decided to start to die on me.(As I said before, its the dodgy website I got it from)
I have owned a Z3+, Z5 Compact (Sony)
-HTC M8 and M9 (Owned)
-No way ill ever get apple, boring design and no SD card and not much features..(Unless jailbroken, which my ipad is..lol)
-Not a Samsung fan, never will be,
-So bottom line, I'll most likely (95%) get a HTC 10 in the future, maybe when the HTC U (Touch sensitive frame) comes out so hopefully there will be another price drop, see if it will go down to 400-450. Then Ill buy it :)

Yeah you should. I think I said in my earlier post that they just lowered the price down from $599 to $499 yesterday, so this is a good time to buy. Plus if you buy from HTC directly (in the US anyway) you get that free 1-Year Uh-Oh Protection. Google it.
Yes, agreed. I was a huge Sony Mobile fan but they kinda let me down with their X Series. I had the Z3 which was AMAZING (2014). Kept it for a year and a half. The X Performance which came out last June was cool too and had an even better camera but they went downhill on battery life and audio, plus their phones, though "compatible enough to use" I guess, don't have the features like VoLTE enabled with T-Mobile like HTC's unlocked phones do b/c Sony is too cheap to get them certified with T-Mobile but HTC isn't. The battery life is slightly better on the 10, and the audio is DEFINITELY better too, so that is why I went back to HTC (had the One M8 in 2014 too before the Sony).
But if you don't live in the U.S., then Sony is a little better I guess. Not sure how the battery life or audio will be on the newer phones, but you can always research that stuff online too.
LG...........meh. lol Bootloop issues and a mediocre camera on the V20........(Google both), I'd stay away. Huwaei I've heard is alright but not that great.
Let us know what you end up getting.

I have played around with all of sony and LG (Except for G3) and a most of Huawei, and my Favourite is definitely Sony and HTC.

Yeah for the most part I agree! No phone is perfect, but the 10 OVERALL is IMO. One "small" omission was not having that one "Smart" feature where the phone keeps the screen on by looking to see if it can detect a face looking at it, which Samsung, Sony and I think LG all have. But I found an app on Play Store called "Wakey" which does the trick! Get that app if you want that feature. I've been working with the Dev to improve it, and now it's basically PERFECT. Just enabled the "FaceWake" feature and you're SET!

Seems like u really liked coming back to 10 :) ... thats true because Htc 10 is perfect in every-way, like there's not a thing that u can say "ok i wish this would have been in included" .. You know what i mean! Lol ... I actually love the audio and the camera on the 10 man.. Its just awesome :)
Just a HTC M9 user, 18 Apr 2017Thanks Everyone for your opinion!
I really appreciate it!
Thanks All :)M9,
I just found out that the HTC 11 will almost for sure NOT have a headphone jack. This is BAD for audio on headphones, so if that matters to you at all, then get the 10.
I can explain further if you want, but the stuff I said about "great audio" on the 10 will not be available on the 11 if my sources are correct UNLESS the phone comes with a headphone jack (and another great DAC, but I am starting to think it won't have that either lol).
Thanks Everyone for your opinion!
I really appreciate it!
Thanks All :)
ADI, 17 Apr 2017Yes i love the 10 in Topaz Gold :) ... The best smartphone of 2016 :)
Agreed! I got the 10 in Glacier Silver (T-Mobile locked) last summer, but just wasn't feelin' it. Went back to Sony for a while but this past January decided the 10 was better overall for me, and this time I went unlocked and so had the 2 extra color choices ftw! VERY happy with this phone!!!!
Just a HTC M9 user, 16 Apr 2017Hey fellas, I currently have the HTC One M9, and I'm experiencing quite a bit of glitches and ... moreHey M9,
Yes, the 10 is MOST DEFINITELY worth the upgrade! It has a much better camera (Sony vs. Toshiba sensor...........Sony BOUGHT OUT Toshiba's camera sensor business too), especially after the 3 major camera updates it's gotten since it's release a year ago. The phone is super fast, the audio quality of the phone is ABOVE average for a smartphone (only rivaled, though not necessarily beat, by the LG V20), the display and sound quality is AMAZING (including phone quality), the phone comes in 4 gorgeous colors if u buy it unlocked (which is what I did, got the Topaz Gold one), same simple great UI/Settings menu, etc etc.
But yes, Anonymous is right that the HTC 11/U/Ocean is about to be announced later this month and released next month (if all the rumors are correct), so you may wanna wait for that. But if not, then no sense in waiting I guess, though the price MAY drop when the 11 is released, or then again, HTC may wait a while to do that. If you can't wait, get the 10, if you can, then see what the 11 is about first. The one thing is they say it will be a 5.5" phone, so it will be slightly bigger. If you're not ok with that, then get the 10 now. lol
Regarding the supreme audio quality of this phone: http://www.androidcentral.com/htc-10-audio-testing-boomsound-evolved
Also, I noticed HTC JUST dropped the price of the 10 from $599 to $499!! (Note: Topaz Gold color is currently unavailable, though you could probably find it on eBay) Check HTC's website for more info!
Just a HTC M9 user, 16 Apr 2017Hey fellas, I currently have the HTC One M9, and I'm experiencing quite a bit of glitches and ... moreWell the htc 10 is an upgrade in every way from the m9 from a much better camera, a much much better processor, better screen etc
But having said that the next htc flagship is very close to release, so I would wait and see what it has to offer
Absolutly ,,,, Man, HTC 10 is outclass phone and worth it i am using and feel this is extra ordinary phone by HTC, excellent processor speed with 4gb ram and excellent camera with HD video recording.
Hey fellas, I currently have the HTC One M9, and I'm experiencing quite a bit of glitches and problems (Software wise) Probably because of the Dodgy Website I got It.
So my question is.. Is the HTC 10 worth the upgrade? or should I wait longer for another HTC flagship?
Please leave me some feedback :) Thanks Everyone!
