Problems that this phone have:
1. Time of premier. Most of people that have mental disease, and need to buy new stuff to feel better, already bought phone, if not samsung or LG, there is few damn good phones from Huawei or Xiaomi.
2. Price. For that price you could easily buy phone, S7 for example now cost about 550E(lowest price I found in my city from markets, on ebay you can buy new for even less). Not to mention that there are other phones with really nice quality and features that could keep up with HTC without a sweat.
3. Design... sorry for most of people it just another brick, and for worst, old design brick.
4. First information about battery are also not that great, and looking at HTC history we all know that its gonna be average.
5. Software. HTC for past few models really messed up performance and stability on their devices.
And yes, some kids gonna cry that other phones doesnt have this or this. Truth is that in everyday usage s820 is nothing big compared to any other cpu, even in games. its not that big step up like people think.
And camera/audio? Who care? 50% of people post images from phone to social media that doesnt care about quality, and rest 50% would take ocasional images that they bury on disc forgetting about it.
Its all about another fanboy war, about buying device just for brand and look, not for every day usage and performance.

"Samsung's approach to imaging - fewer, but larger pixels on its rear camera"
I thought HTC started that trend 4 years ago at the start of the "One" line..

Anonymous, 17 Apr 2016Samsung didn't bring a new design on s7 edge too yes but s7 looks like a piece of expensive gold jewelry,
where as htc, looks like a stainless steel pedal bin. Just sayin.
Joe B, 17 Apr 2016I can't deny I am an HTC Fan, but for some reasons i skipped M9 for S6 Edge thinking Edges mad... morenice story bro. Regards to the htc Pr team
7 edge in a higher realm where htc doesn't exist.
Jcb make good phones tho.
awsumname, 17 Apr 2016its either the phone is really good... or here got a lot of HTC fan boys.Either you're just a troll, or you're just an Apple fruit / a Samesung fanboy
Khan01, 17 Apr 2016very big disappointment HTC. same old design same old look everything same just like htc one. ... moreI can't deny I am an HTC Fan, but for some reasons i skipped M9 for S6 Edge thinking Edges made it look unique. Yes it looked different then but for me not anymore, had to let S7 Edge go. I'm coming back HTC, I'm in for HTC 10. After Samsung started selling their curved screens to other brands like Vivo etc, i believe it's no longer a big deal. Look at Vivo Xplay5, nah!!
Everything seems to be right this time. Good processor (/), better camera (/), usb type c (/) and 4gb of optimised ram (/), can't miss out good design (/).
I hope HTC will have good sales this year! The only downside is that they tend to give too much big words. Sam GS7 Edge (i mean the exynos version) is also very good this year, honestly the best samsung phone I've ever seen, the ram is optimised in the exynos version), hope that htc 10 is made on par with gs7 edge (exynos version again.)
Anonymous, 17 Apr 2016Why do u switch? I think One m8 is still pretty good so no reason to buy a new phoneOne switch from M8 because it takes lousy shots.
Other than that, the phone is indeed good.
Actually in my opinion this phone is a beast...im using for almost 3yrs now windows phone...but I'm so disappointed in new models come up..but if they can't make models looks great maybe ill stay again but if not I'll be going back to android phone and use your new htc10 I just hope u could lessen the price.design is just a gimmick anyways for my opinion..the real and important thing..u love and like the phone u used
its either the phone is really good... or here got a lot of HTC fan boys.
Eibi, 17 Apr 2016Waited this phone, but it has no infrared port !? Look's like I must switch from HTC ONE m8 t... moreWhy do u switch? I think One m8 is still pretty good so no reason to buy a new phone
"The Taiwanese company also takes Samsung's approach to imaging - fewer, but larger pixels on its rear camera. HTC calls it Ultra Pixel 2."
Fewer, but larger CMOS Pixels is rather a typical approach of HTC ^^ , it's really important ...
