Viswa, 12 Apr 2016Same here man. I was eagerly waiting for the SD820 version. I'm sure anyone who ever compares ... moreWell go than for Samsung,he never lying its costumers.
You may end up with inferior sammy camera sensor instead of Sony's.... but yea with Samsung you wont feel discriminated ; )
Lets understand the customer base of flagship phones. Yes, these phones are bought by aware people who knows about atleast a bit of technicals. So fooling them by giving them same look and feel with downgraded specs wouldn't be a wise decision.
Lifestyle can be an option other than the main HTC 10 for the ones who dont require hi-fi specs for any reason or who are not ready to spend that much.
If HTC doesnt release the main HTC 10 in India, 3rd biggest mobile consumer market, I think its the game done for them. They need to seriously reconsider getting both phones in India, plus dual sim versions.
M9 plus was launched instead of m9 with mediatak soc. And now sd 652 in 10. why htc why. It was a turnoff back then, and is a turnoff now again. Betrayal.
i'm from taipei. hope they sell the Lifestyle variant here. I don't like the "Lifestyle" moniker though.
I'm not understanding why OEMs are fooling final customers
Coz not everyone checks out phone specs before buying one. And SD 652 with QHD will not fly as the other combo
And this may turn out bad for HTC as if this change fails to offer the same level performance than it may give bad publicity to them
Even LG is going the same way ripping off customers from some areas I do agree at lower price but still why compromise..
Coz HTC is trying to be back into the game and such decisions create bad impressions
I remember Samsung Galaxy S5 received bad response from customers coz they failed cheated for not using Snapdragon instead went to Exynos just coz SD was too mainstream and people didn't know much about Exynos
GALAXY BOY, 12 Apr 2016htc your update system is so bad. just learn from father of smart phones samsung. they are the... moreHAHAHA you mad bro? Galaxy S5 didn't even get marshmallow, meanwhile my HTC One M8 is enjoying marshmallow.
Gurijala, 12 Apr 2016Dude from what you say I feel even a feature phone will do for you.Hahaha maybe you're right ; )
Btw I've still miss my old Nokia 6210.... should still be working if I menage to find it(somewhere trough my ladds) :D
And to previous poster who said that 6s "obliterates" the Ip6,clearly is lying (as he mention reviews) and never used both of them in real!
htc your update system is so bad. just learn from father of smart phones samsung. they are the best in updates
Matthew, 12 Apr 2016Snapdragon 652 with a QHD Display..
We have to wait & see how it turns out..
Snapdr... moreIt certainly drive 2K display effortlessly. Remember SD810 used for Sony Z5's 4k display and SD810 is scoring less in benchmarks compared to SD652. Well, the other disadvantage with SD652 is it has used 28nm manufacturing process which is not as power efficient as SD820!
Still SD652 in HTC10 does not make any sense. This is turning out to be a suicide in east markets for HTC.
I was thinking to buy Mi5 but left disappointed and then thought about buying htc 10, and the same thing happened
Christian, 12 Apr 2016I don't want to influence on anybody's opinion,and after all we live in globalised world where... moreI have used both the 6 and 6s and the 6s obliterates the 6 in performance. Reviews say the same.
Ananthu07, 12 Apr 2016People who come to this site bothers about it. right? So, it is disappointing.
And as far as... moreI don't want to influence on anybody's opinion,and after all we live in globalised world where you could buy any version if you like to.
But this rant is completely unnecesery,at least if you are not into mobile gaming.For any other use cases both SoC's are equal!
How do I know this?Right now in my hands i hold iphone 6 and 6s! The difference between A8 and A9 are the same as differences between SD652 and SD820.But belive me,both of my phones perform equally in real life!Sometimes only the difference in color shows me which one is my "s" : )
Maybe that has some to do with my usage habbits,but generally the difference is minor.
This is a wrong decision by HTC both variants should be available in India because India is one of the biggest smartphone market, they might have just turned away thousands of potential buyers. Anyway I will get one for my wife because of the picture quality I heard its great and my wife loves pictures.
