ACA777, 27 Jul 2016HI Shshanks24, fellow HTC 10 fan here. I agree with most comments you made but I've found it i... moreHello ACA777 , I am not that into music/songs hence I did not find any difference in the audio quality and especially when coming from HTC m7. Mostly I watch youtube videos and movies on my phone. Also I haven't explored the audio options present on the phone as its bit confusing to me. So I better thought not to comment on such things that I am not much aware of. Also the external speakers as as loud as note 5 that my wife has.
But surely from reviews and other user opinions I can say this must be the best phone when it comes to audio quality.
I hope HTC did better o. Selling ..because I love HTC phones and I wish every year HTC did better ....but 10 why don't have dual sim ?...I'm use now A9 but I wish. To buy 10 ....but I need dual sim
HI Shshanks24, fellow HTC 10 fan here. I agree with most comments you made but I've found it interesting that among your 1,000 words you didn't even get to mention the sound quality which is the area that this phone is in a league of its own. Combine it with the included Hi Fi earphones (sorry US guys, rest of the world gets this for free) and I can pretty much guarantee you haven't heard sound like this before! It is mind meltingly good...
htc 10 is the best phone of the year and the best until now in mobile world but........ but htc can't sell lots of htc 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! one of the main causes is late releasing after announcement.after many months from announcement till now many country don't get htc 10. come on htc.at leats in 2016 htc works better than other companies and even better than Samsung but in marketing htc is very weak and disappoints most of the htc lover or new customer who want to buy htc for first time(htc 10).
IF HTC CAN IMPROVES AND FIXES ITS MARKETING AND ADVERTISING THEN WILL BACK TO SHINING DAYS LIKE 2011 AND .....
I HOPE TO SEE THOSE DAYS AGAIN VERY SOON.
HTC still does NOT have any info on the release date of the latest HTC 10 in New Zealand, very dissapointing! I guess Samsung, Sony or LG will now get my money...
I bought HTC 10 in India 3 days back. Its an awesome phone. Will recommend to all. I really feel bad for HTC that they are not able to sell this phone in good numbers. People are really ignorant about this phone.
Let me tell you how I decided on buying this phone. But first let me tell my experience about my previously owned phones. I had bought Note 1 in Feb 2012 and after using it for 1.5 years it started having issues of random reboots and it happened every now and then when I was browsing or having phone calls. When I visited their service station the guys over there told me that motherboard was faulty and needed to be replaced which would have cost INR 10k. This is the quality of Samsung flagship phones. Also by this time phone was extremely laggy and slow. Then I decided to buy a new phone instead of spending so much on slow laggy phone. So I bought HTC One M7 in Aug 2013 and let me tell you its was a beast when it came to day to day operations. For 2 years it was running butter smooth. Only after I upgraded to Lollipop things had become a big laggy but that was only observed few times. Still its fast when you compare a 3 year old device. My sister has galaxy S3 which is 3.5 years old is its slow as snail. Also she had to change mother board twice (during warranty period) and this is her 3rd battery in her phone. Compared to that battery on HTC One M7 is so good even after 3 years. It can last up to 2-3 hours of screen on time. Also I keep my phone charging for the entire night still no issues like low performance or bloating of battery which is common on Samsung phones.
Now let me tell you about my journey of buying this gem of a phone. I had decided on upgrading to a new phone this year so from past few months I have been constantly watching reviews and comparison videos on youtube. I was confused between S7 edge and HTC 10. My wife was suggesting me to go for Oneplus 3 as it was cost effective. I had almost finalized on Oneplus 3 soft gold edition but then I saw many negative comments on Amazon and gsmarena about the quality of the phone like fast draining of the battery, issue with finger print scanner when kept in pockets facing leg side, defective display etc. So this phone was now out of option. Now I had almost made up mind on S7 edge as it had superior screen and camera as compared to HTC 10. But again I knew how laggy the phones get in 1 year. Also I read in many user reviews that the phone was extremely fragile and the screen or glass back would easy break or scratch with small falls. So if I had decided to buy this I would have to use a case which would make the phone bulky which I never liked. Also its a finger print magnet both back and screen and it looks so awful cover with fingerprints all over. Also in many user reviews (gsmarena) I read how the screen would have issues (faulty)on a newly bought phone or issues related to wifi, rebooting, lagging, even water damage considering its water resistant and can stay submerged in water upto 30 mins etc. So finally I decided to go for HTC 10. And I can say I made a smart decision. Now coming to this beautiful phone below are some things I observed:
1. Built quality: Extremely awesome. Can beat any phone in the world when compared to built quality even Iphone. Extremely durable. Watch drop test on youtube for this. It feels so premium in hand. Those big chamfered edges on the back its feels like a piece of jewellery.
2. Display: If you dont compare the display with amoled (S7 edge) screens then its way too awesome. Good brightness with high clarity and vivid colours. I would rate this display 9/10.
There is issue with polarised sun glasses though for some models. When you view in portrait mode then visibility is almost reduced to 10%. You will need to look in landscape mode or turn the brightness to 100%. But this is not observed on all models only few. So it depends on your luck which model you get.
3. Performance and Software: I have no words for it. Everything opens in an instant, Its butter smooth. UI so user friendly and simple. You can customise each and everything from wall paper to icons etc. Its extremely fast. Sense has always been the no 1 skin on android and it continues to do so. There is 0 bloat ware and you can disable the unwanted apps. I bet you cannot complain in this department and HTC is way ahead in terms of competition when its comes to software.
4. Battery: I am getting screen on time of more that 5 hours which I feel is good. Yesterday with moderate use battery reduced from 100% to 11% in 14 hrs 30 mins which is more than full day. So I don't think anybody can complain in this department as well. Also you have quick charge. It charged from 11% to 94% in 1 hour which is extremely fast. So no worries in this department as well. Yes the phones become warm while fast charging but its ok. Its not unbearable and can be overlooked.
5. Camera: Main camera is also good though I did not get a chance of taking too many photos I think is among the top 5 contenders of this year. Selfie camera is on the top, better than that of S7 edge. I can say you wont be disappointed with the camera as well. Even if you watch videos on youtube you would observe sometimes it takes better shots even compared to S7 edge or other phones in this category.
Only negative thing I feel about this phone is the price which is INR 52990 which I feel is a bit high. Considering all mid range phones come in metal and have similar specs. Also HTC is not doing so well they should have kept prices 5K to 10K less than the completion which would have helped them to get good sales. Also I was getting S7 edge in INR 51290 considering 10% cash back and normal S7 was about INR 44K this phone feels overpriced which is hurting its sales. HTC should do something in this area.

Mr Grey, 24 Jul 2016I have owned a HTC 10 in grey colour just over a week now and I have learned the following....... moreTotally agree with you on that! I have the Htc 10 in Topaz Gold colour, n i really like it so much. The Gold really shines on it ;)... N yes i would also definitely recommend it to everyone. Its surely one of the best phones of 2016. :)
I have owned 20 different flagship androids and even an iPhone 6 (regret it) in the past two years, and out of all of them this has to be my favorite phone. I love the manual camera controls, the sensor is big enough to capture stars if you know what you are doing. The battery life id imagine is good, but for a heavy user like myself i have to charge my phone about once, sometimes twice a day. Be careful in the summer, if it is really hout out and you have your phone in a case the volume buttons bend, and the charging port can also stop working after a while. I have had both of these happen and already gotten a replacement phone and charger from HTC. Screen quality is stunning, call quality is very crisp and easy, build quality is great and feels amazing in hand, not too light or heavy, quick charge has been such a life saver, you can charge your phone from zero to one hundred in one hour while heavily using it. Video quality is extremely clear at 2160p but not that smooth, and the fingerprint sensor is outstandingly fast and accurate, blows all other phones away. I have had this phone for 2 months now and I love it and highly recommend it for photography.
I have owned a HTC 10 in grey colour just over a week now and I have learned the following....
The Htc 10 is absolutely very well built and far superior to say the G5 which I have owned but I had to send two back due to them failing but the Htc 10 hasn't missed a beat so far but I keep mine in a unicorn beetle supcase and a glass screen protecter so it's like a tank,very solid though.
The battery life is very good but not fantastic but for a heavy user like me I usually have to top it up in the evening but I never use quick charge cause for long term use I don't want to kill the battery but the battery life is far better than the previous M9 which I have had also,overall the battery life on the Htc 10 is good.
The screen is great but I think the quality on my G4 is better but that's just me and on a very sunny day it can be difficult to see the Htc 10 screen but it's not terrible though.
4,call quality and sound
The call quality is excellent and very clear indeed,far superior to my G4 I know that and the speakers for music and movies are excellent and very loud.
The fingerprint scanner is very good and never fails at all and I am very happy with it and I think it's far better than the one on the G5 because of the placement of it on the Htc 10.
6,speed and general use
The speed of the phone is excellent and I have never had a slow down so far and for general use the phone is fast as hell to be honest,butter smooth.
Would I recommend the Htc 10 over over phones right now,? Absolutely I would but I do wish I could remove the battery on it but otherwise the Htc 10 is excellent and definitely worth the purchase.
