I have been using my HTC 10 now for two weeks and it's a truly excellent smartphone it does everything great in every area that a smartphone should and the build quality of it is outstanding also but I admit to buy sim free it is alot of money but it's worth it for sure.
If I thought it was rubbish in any way I would say but I can't think of anything that's truly wrong about it.
It's a beauty for sure
It's a very good all rounder you really can't go wrong with it at all.

Shshanks24, 28 Jul 2016Hello ACA777 , I am not that into music/songs hence I did not find any difference in the audio... moreHey Shshanks24. Fair enough. It's just that the sound quality (by that I mostly mean the headphone output) is kind of the feature where this phone beats the cr@# out of any other phone, that's all. Speakers are ok but the Tweeter + Woofer setup is a little weird. It sounds best in portrait orientation, not in landscape so it's not the best for video viewing. But no worse than the single bottom firing speakers of the Samsungs or iPhones. Including stereo front facing speakers would've been ideal but it's definitely a compromise to include the fingerprint reader at the front. The speakers are loud enough but definitely not the loudest. It is quality, rich sound though.
I had the S7 before this phone (gave that to the wife) and I'd say it would stand up to the S7 in every area except the camera. It's not a bad camera, it's just the S7 has a ridiculously good camera that makes everything else look bad, especially under low light. Most people can definitely live with the HTC 10s camera though, like I can.
Konvict Antar, 28 Jul 2016Nice Decsision, U explored Phone Arena,R8??No...I dint read review on phone Arena or R8.
I had fallen in love with htc Audio(Inner+Output)from m8 & still i love this boom sound quality,

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.
