Stipes, 10 May 2016What do you mean "No fast charge". M8, M9, A9, Desire EYE all have fast charge option. CPU pro... moreHTC One M9+, ME come with a 1.5A charger in the box. Put a 2A charger on them, well, even MTK based HTCs of recent times are coming with Pump Express fully enabled....
ensem, 10 May 2016HTC..just not enough..What do you mean "No fast charge". M8, M9, A9, Desire EYE all have fast charge option. CPU provides that. All have Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 capability. A9 have Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. With HTC 10 you even get Quick charger 3.0 in the box.
And waterproofing is very important since you speak while showering or diving. All of the above models are splashproof which basically is what is important since it is "life event". As a matter of front speakers, HTC 10 has even better sound than before. And yes HTC 10 is between 2 best Android phones of 2016 with one of 2 best cameras, providing also great sound and performance. Hope that you fell much better spiting so much hatred ;) kisses
HTC has stopped making good phones at competitive prices!! New HTC Phones in 15-20k has similar specifications to competitor phones in 7-10k price range. I still have my original HTC Desire, (which I bought from Flipkart for 15k) which was a good buy. HTC still makes phones with excellent build quality. But now the top end HTC cost 40K, midrange priced phones have low end specs and there are no low end phones.
ninugie, 09 May 2016Htc strikes again.just like Sony.they think they are apple.crazy prices and for what?they offe... moreAt least Sony provide waterproof, fast charge and very good battery life, good photo camera, software updates at marshmallow for all Sony Z
and.... front stereo speakers which HTC don't provide anymore
Bad marketing strategy even after unveiling the phone in March it's not available across the world. Secondly specification has also lower down for Asian market than why they will purchase.thirdly Htc record in software update on is also pathetic.
I say price this @ $500 for getting more attention and presence in market, people are still awaiting for moto-x 2016, Xiaomi Mi5 pro and Oneplus-3.. and you have same average processor with weaker GPU.
This should be selling at $550 If not the less than 6P. Given the display is SLCD QHD, non equivalent stereo speakers as M9, average battery life, awkward touch capacitive button position, *Average* camera. HTC you better need to understand what you are getting is for what you are giving. I had HTC Sensation, HTC One X+ and I felt they were having pretty good builds with average battery life. You might be carried away by new comers like Moto-X and P9 If you don't price it competitively.
I do not believe in the words of the official. Too smell the lies futile setting.
Manny, 09 May 2016Really!! $250? I bet you haven't gotten a chance to see HTC 10 physically.Apple iPhone 6s plus and the latest Samsung S7 edge are all around $250 range in terms of BOM. Just do a google search, you will find this information.
So, the key here is the volume. If the volume is big, like Apple is huge, the R&D cost on each phone will be small. Apple can sell near 200 million units/year. If each phone to get $10 for the R&D cost, total would be $2B.
quality-price ratio makes HTC to have financial losses. This year's winner will be LeEco Max 2 and those who will lose are Samsung, HTC, Sony, LG, ..and more ...
HTC: *sells phone overprice*
HTC: I still don't understand what I did wrong!!
HTC must understand today bussiness; that is providing good quality with good price.
That's the karma of refusing to provide software updates for non flagship models.
It's no surprise, but they made a right choice to also focus on other than phones with the Vive VE and Re camera. The new HTC 10 looks very promising.
coyz, 09 May 2016Until now i am still enjoying my M8 at its full service. No complaint about it. HTC should hav... moreThe price is cheaper than other flagships and the phone is better with higher quality DAC and build quality etc.
It was only $599 for the longest time and since you didn't pre-order it then shows you would have never bought one anyways.
