Maybe the 810 was all they had. It's easy to say they should have improved here or there or they should use this screen or that chipset but that isn't what everyone is looking for. Sprint touts the phone as the fastest and maybe it is or not, but more people will be interested in it.
~70.2% screen-to-body ratio, ok ok HTC, please try harder, gonna be OK, make HTC great again! (75% at least!)
I thinks it is looks dope.Just the problem is the Headphone jack removed.But still,they give a free DAC and its headphone with dac capability.The size could be more smaller like 5 inch and battery should be bigger even if could be more bulkier.
Heating up on sd810 was a design flaw, that might have been fixed on more recent batches, otherwise 810 is perfectly fine and hardly any real life performance difference from sd820
AnonD-196276, 11 Nov 2016May be, but no OIS,corning gorilla glass, Android 7, fingerprint, USB-C, bigger screen, higher... more-Sony's own image stabilization tech called SteadyShot fares better than most OIS-es out there
-Z3+ is getting Android 7 in the near future anyway
-Z3+ also has protective glass on both sides but Sony never mentioned which brand it is
-bigger screen and bigger resolution doesn't always better (in fact it strains the CPU and GPU more)
-bigger battery doesn't always translates into better battery life
-HTC may have better tech in the audio department but at least Z3+ still has dual front facing speakers.
All other specs that you've mentioned are clearly not worth the $300 increase from a brand new Z3+ in my region here.
Snapdragon 810?? Hahahaha! What a junk!
Oh, for all the people saying SD810 is ok, stop lying! Just cos you bought a device with that processor doesn't make it ok. I've searched on many websites and came to the conclusion that phones with SD801 are more expensive than phones with SD810 especially for this reason.
If you don't believe me, do your own research.
Meanwhile, cook some eggs and bacon on your 810 processor..
AnonF-429807, 11 Nov 2016This phone makes my Xperia Z3+ a complete bargain.May be, but no OIS,corning gorilla glass, Android 7, fingerprint, USB-C, bigger screen, higher pixel count, larger battery capacity, and HTC sound of paradise.
This combination (ois camera, working fingerprint scanner, metal unibody, water resistance, USB -C , speaker system of HTC 10,....) needs to downgrade the processor to reach an affordable price value, otherwise it will be outside the competition. This is my opinion.
AnonD-573368, 11 Nov 2016I think HTC is collapsing, who in the world would buy a phone in more than 600 ( what ever ) f... moredont talk bad about adreno 430 coz its still super powerful gpu,other things u said i agree hehe

NeonHD, 30 Oct 2016Nah m8 I have a feeling BlackBerry will make a comeback soon, but as for HTC I really hope they dieShame on you
