All this best camera, best performance, best sound is all cool and stuff (maybe it can finally replace my Galaxy K Zoom), but what about battery life??
HTC has never been good with battery (maybe bit better than LG but not as good as Samsung phones). I wish they would release a teaser about their superior battery life, but sad thing - they are probably null on this for a reason :(
Here hoping that I can maybe downclock snapdragon 820 to 1/3rd of its speed to improve battery life yet keeping its performance...
What do you guys think?
kevin97, 07 Apr 2016Pathetic way to cover the fact that they will be late to the game, all the other major players... moreAnd in 5 days, they'll all be long forgotten. When everyone is talking about the phone of the year. The HTC 10.
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2016It's clear from reading the thread that there's a misunderstanding of what the SoC architectur... morereally? your statement just proved that you can't stand with one point, first i said that CPU/GPU, fps and resolution affects the cam performance and not only your Snapdragon and you said i was wrong, when i forgot to mention CPU for my next comment, you made it another issue, so which is which is which boy? it seems that you can't defend and issue that i can shove you off from, i did not even say anything bad about HTC, i just said their battery-heating issue is pissing people off
kyokukei, 07 Apr 2016i think HTC is drunk.........A camera sensor same as Nexus 6, how "best" would it be ? How are... moreIt's not the same sensor as the nexus 6. Its the same as the 5x, and 6p. With the addition of... OIS, pdaf. Plus it may have a larger aperature.
Hopefully, this is true statement.
HTC you need to price it competitively. Over $500 price tag won't get much back in terms of market shares. You screwed your customers in the last 2-3 models, they will not come back so easy.
I'm exactly the opposite, I prefer a physical button, but needs to be a finger print scanner as well.
I'm not a sympathizer, HTC, but must admit, that this is an excellent phone, face of S7 from Samsung.
jorn, 07 Apr 2016Your number 7 is one of the reasons I don't like Samsung. I hate the hard home button. It's mu... moreQuite opposite... I actually hate on screen controls because they take screen space. I can be defended if at least the absence of hardware buttons going to remove the bezel at the bottom , but it was never the case that HTC have thin bezels or good screen to body ratio.. so in conclusion... HTC doesn't benefit from onscreen controls, but just looses screen space..
HTC 10 can be described by saying - "who talks a lot, doesn't get up to doing much". The simple reality - they are behind the schedule and know that that are no match for S7 (not to mention S7 edge), neither G5 and probably not even P9... keep feeding everyone with words.. until the hype of the current flagships are over and they can quietly release their shameful phone.
The day I buy my next HTC phone will be the day they say it has the capability to read your mind and call the liquor store and pizza joint when youre hungry for beer and pizza.
derektaiwan, 07 Apr 2016Just take my money already. You had me at hello. 4/12...bring it!I d love to buy it but I am pretty happy with my M9 too (bought it last June so I have it less than a year).
Also it doesnt make sense to upgrade every year spending this kind of money on smartphones.
I ll try to restrain myself waiting to upgrade to M11 next year.
In the past they disappointed. Let's see if they got their act together this time around ( I highly doubt it though). Samsung released,LG released and many others out of China have already released their new smartphones. Hopefully it will not offer us a Xiaomi Mi5 smartphone at an inflated price with similar specs.
Edy1, 07 Apr 2016I agree (HTC vs Samsung) 5. no super AMOLED screen 6. no water proof 7. no hard home an... moreHonestly no-one could care less about waterproofing. I own an s7 edge but even i think that is just a feature shoehorned in just in case apple implement it into the s7

Barsylyk, 07 Apr 2016I had M7 and M8. always satisfied with the result.That's weird, but good for you.
