I have had the HTC 10 for almost a month now, and I can say that I'm disappointed.
My previous phone was the HTC Desire Eye, and except for some battery issues with it, it was great. (Only 2,400 mah for a 5.2" screen).
With the HTC 10 I still experience battery issues and can get mostly about 4 hours of screen-on time. I am not a heavy user, I usually just browse Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp and open the camera every once in a while.
HTC boasted with a "2 day battery" but it wouldn't last me even for half a day.
Other than that, the camera tends to overexpose pictures sometimes, especially in daylight, and night shots usually come up blurry, even though it has an OIS.
Multimedia wise, I can say that the speaker is a bit weaker than the BoomSound speakers I have on my HTC Desire Eye. No idea why HTC decided to drop the boomsound in their flagship model but, what can you do about it? Personally I'd rather get a Full HD screen with better speakers than the 4K display which basically has no benefit in terms of performance. I also find myself usually toggling battery saver mode on for longer battery life, but the screen is rather dark in the battery saver mode (the screen itself isn't bright at all in general, good luck with the sunlight), so I have to compromise.
Design wise, the phone looks good, I like the metal feel (even though it gets hotter beause of it), the fingerprint sensor is usually fast, but I don't like the sides of the phone - they're not curved enough and if you won't put a case, you'll feel the roughness in your hands while holding it. They should have had gone with the 2.5D bezels.
And one last thing - I can't see anything on the screen with my polarized sunglasses! That's a major letdown and everytime I want to take a peek at the phone I have to remove my glasses. Overall I've paid 700$ for the device but I don't think that the value justifies it. I would have went with the Galaxy S7 but I'm a media user and the S7 doesn't have high volume while lisening to music via earphones, which is an important thing for me.
I have changed my M7 with brilliant 10, and i have no words to express my pleasure. Speed, battery life, camera, ...... everything is awesome (lego the movie) (i can do this for hours) :)
I cannot find any bad part of it. Fantastic!!!!!!
I have been using my HTC 10 from new now for two months and I have had zero problems of any kind the phone works brilliantly in every area I can't think of anything bad I could say about it,it has brilliant battery life and has excellent call quality also and it's just a extremely good all rounder you simply can't go wrong buying this phone.

I recently purchased a HTC 10 directly from HTC USA website. The phone came with dead pixels. Customer service is horrible and their policy works against the customer instead of helping the customer. Lengthy and slow response, time consuming, the customers is punished twice: A defective product and a bad customer support that instead of compensating for the already early bad experience, then they make the process of replacing the unit another bad and difficult experience. This was my third HTC, but customers be aware, you do not want to buy things from a company that does not have good customer service.
