Those are the most likely specs. I would PREFER the screen was 5.2" and not 5.5", but if the body of the 11/Ocean is CLOSE to the 10, I might look the other way. I REALLY hope the battery is 3700 mAh cuz that would be SWEET!
Other than that.........if HTC 1) Has the same high quality DEDICATED DAC and DEDICATED headphone amp on the 11 as it does on the 10, or a slightly improved version 2) HTC wisely decides to certify VoLTE & WiFi Calling with T-Mobile as they did on the 10 3) My above statements end up being true (size and battery) and 4) the phone has the buttonless design I keep reading about (Power button is ok though lol)..............then I'd VERY LIKELY get the 11/Ocean!
We shall see though!!
[deleted post]Ohhhh if we get something like that, maaaybee it will erase my memories of HTC U Ultra Fail. Nice site by the way, Cheers M8+3!

Go to Settings>Call and then at the very bottom you should see VoLTE and Wifi Calling listed as options you can check or uncheck. I'm not sure why you don't see it as it sounds like you have the EXACT same phone setup I do. I would suggest buying a brand new SIM card and trying it, and if that doesn't work, take it to a T-Mobile Store and have them look at it.
The 10 you bought though..............did you buy it off like Amazon or eBay or did you buy it from the US HTC.com store? I ask b/c I see that Amazon and I think eBay too also sell the Middle Eastern HTC 10 which is also known as the M10h. I think it will work in the US, but it may not have all the same options. Those are the 2 only reasons I can come up with.
Is there wi-fi calling option available in HTC 10. I have searched on google and pepople are suggesting that there is an option in setting->call, but I am not able to activate it. I have unlocked HTC 10, Android 7.0 and T-mobile connection. I have used the same T-mobile sim on my Apple SE and WI-Fi calling is working, but not on HTC 10. Any suggestion how to activate it on HTC 10 will be appreciated.
acemang, 16 Mar 2017i bought also an transparent slim case, but it removes all the good looks of the phone. i hate... more I C.
Yeah cases tend to that, which is why I ONLY get clear cases. But even then I'll agree at least some of the phone's looks are less easy to see. But see I won't do skins either cuz they don't really provide any real protection, so you might as well just not use one. lol The 10 is built from metal, and doesn't scratch or crack easily, though even some level of impact could cause a permanent scuff.
I've dropped my phone a couple times already and only got a couple months ago, so for me I'd prob rather have a case. But IF I get the 11/Ocean, I may not cuz 1) I hate phablets lol and 2) a case would only make the phone look bigger.
Yeah man....... I compared it with the LG V20, and I thought it sounded JUST as good as that one, if not better maybe?! It has both the audio quality cuz of the dedicated DAC (NOT using the 820 like some ppl said), the dedicated headphone amp, and also some extra work that HTC had put into it as well.
Wow you get a full 2 days?! That's amazing. I can prob get a little over a day, but I dunno about 2 unless I barely touch it? lol
Nice on the 4drives!
Yeah for headphones I use the AKG K551. I've tried out SEVERAL premium headphones over the last 2 years, and AKG always comes out on top for closed-back headphones at least. The highly-rated AKG K550 (which sounds just like the K551 but has a longer cable) was $200 when I bought it 2 years ago, but now it's like only $100 on Amazon which is crazy cuz it sounds better than most $300-$400 headphones I've tried out. Also, Blue's new Sadie and Ella are awesome too and they have built-in audiophile-grade amps, but cost more ($399 and $699...the Ella is planar magnetic and super highly-rated). The plus of having a built-in amp is you don't have to turn up the volume on your 10 as much, which would actually SAVE battery power. Those 2 brands are the ONLY ones I'd recommend to people at this point.

Yeah the edges are great. I did get a clear case for it, which I have mixed feelings about. I like the extra protection you get, and the 10 can be slippery so a case is nice, but it does make the phone look bigger which I don't like. lol
Exactly! But the 11........... if it's buttonless like they say, sounds very cool. I don't like that it will prob be 5.5" though. NOT a fan of phablets! lol So that could be a reason not to get it. IF I did I'd be less likely to get a case for it. lol Plus also the battery size matters. I kinda wish the 10's battery was a little bigger, though 3000 mAh isn't bad.

Like i said, I own this phone in Topaz Gold :), It really shines in it (specifically the chamfered edges). Its definitely a wonderful device to hold on. Plus yea you don't need to go for any other phone now, since it has everything in it, that we require.. Haha
Warbaby, 15 Mar 2017Cool, I respect your opinion. I am going for the Huawei 10 plus. Nice chattingYea same here. Huawei p10 is a good phone as well.. Go for it ;)
ADI, 16 Mar 2017Yea it is the best choice of all... And i am glad you are back again with the 10 :)
Which color 10 do you got?
Yeah I LOVE this phone............not even sure I will upgrade this year to the 11/Ocean or not. We'll see. I definitely don't feel like I NEED to. lol
The price went down $50 on the 10 (go to HTC's website to see), which means next Monday's announcement may very well be for the 11/Ocean! I guess we'll see soon. (Note also that the Topaz Gold color I got for my 10 is not listed, at least for now.)

I bought it in Topaz Gold too. I think it's the classiest of the bunch. I had it in Glacier Silver last summer, but returned it for the Sony Xperia X Performance. But Sony kinda dropped the ball on their more recent X series phones, so I decided to go back to HTC with the 10 about 2 mos ago, and I haven't looked back since.
Warbaby, 15 Mar 2017what's your opinion on the camera?Since, I own this phone in Topaz Gold. It takes excellent quality videos, n produces very clear pictures.I have no problem with it at all. I would say that, its one of the best camera that we saw in 2016 Smartphones.
ADI, 15 Mar 2017Lol... You are a funny guy ;)what's your opinion on the camera?
DaveH, 05 Mar 2017HTC 10 has the best DAC you can get; nobody else cares as much about sound, though their speak... more
Yeah it does. This article not only talks about why it's great on audio, it also clears up some misinformation about the 10's DAC and headphone amp.
I also compared it with my $299 Oppo HA-2 portable premium amp/DAC, and I felt it MATCHED it! So I sold off my Sony Xperia X Performance (which couldn't match the Oppo) AND the HA-2 as well and kept the 10! Now I don't need an in-between device anymore to get Hi-Fi quality sound.
HTC has made a big statement with the HTC 10. The statement is that they are not driven by exceptional quality nor customer service excellence. The HTC 10 is not a flagship phone its a middle finger phone, yes it is. Its like HTC saying F you customers, we don't care about your opinion. Well, I will return the favour as my middle finger gets a boner when I think of the HTC 10 Camera. This camera remind me of the phones with Symbian OS. How could they expect to compete with smartphone gods like Samsung and IPhone cameras? My point is, the camera on the HTC 10 is an absolute embarrassment! Yet they boast of DxOMark score of 88*, one of the highest camera quality scores of any smartphone so far. LOL, Joke. The Mate P9 makes the HTC 10 camera look like 1981 Super Mario graphic. The rest of the HTC 10 phone is ok though but the camera! Smh
