All the comments about being overpriced are petty as it is the same price as the Samsung Galaxy S7 in the UK. I have always had Galaxy devices but try out all the competition before I buy. I will be checking out the HTC 10 before I pass judgement.
Remember Haters will hate
The CFO is just as clueless as everyone who works at HTC. Like, does nobody take a look at the device and does peer review anymore before it gets shipped to manufacturing?? And what in god's name do you release a model that is over a year old and charge MORE for what the competitors are doing? Just how exactly does that even make sense?
They deserve it
Used to be one of their supporters but their phones now are more than terrible
This really breaks my heart that HTC is seriously going under. How long can they continue to take this kind of hit year on year.
It's a shame. I've like many HTC phones and look forward to the 10. Unfortunately they can't seem to compete with Samsung, which is dominating the market.
They deserve everything that happens to them. Overprice everything and them bezels are fugly.
It seems they are trying to recover their losses by Overpricing their Phones... And this is the point where they are actually getting hit badly...
HTC you are not selling well because of steep pricing... Bring up Phones with low price with good specs and see the miracle...
Gibby, 09 May 2016This'll change soon with the 10 - but they really should try to release their flagship same ti... moreBetter compete with samsung and LG rather than releasing it nearer to the iphone announcement.
Note4user, 09 May 2016My money went for HTC 10 ... it looks like the perfect choice for me (I really do not like S7/... moreThey will recover. I hope they don't make the same mistake again, even though I think the pricing of the HTC 10 is a huge mistake.
The price is the only reason I am not considering the HTC 10. I cant buy a phone priced same as the S7 and not equal or greater than the S7. So for me I will take the s7
At least LG priced theirs $50 cheaper.
iron wolve, 09 May 2016htc start to fail after m7They started to fail long before M7. From the HTC One S. They went from top dog to nothing. Samsung quickly went to top.
swirly, 09 May 2016By that same logic: Late release + higher price tag + thick bezel = Apple loses the market?Apple fans only see Apple. You cant compare Apple and HTC. Compare HTC with other brands.
Yujikon, 09 May 2016And still they want to make money with a phone that costs more than an iPhone and offers less ... moreIt technically doesnt cost more than the iphone, the iphone 6s plus is the only contender, and that is $750, which has way less value than the galaxy s7 or htc 10.
Good,over-price your product and end up like a failure..

Really! Apple's problem is wall street. If making over $10billion in profit in a quarter is your idea of getting destroyed, then who exactly is doing well? Last I checked, they are making 90% of the industry profits. Their iPhone numbers are down and it will be down for all of 2016. It is down simply when you compare it to a once in a lifetime event for the iphone 6, since an unusually high number of folks upgraded to the 6. 2015 was an el nino year, not the norm.
My money went for HTC 10 ... it looks like the perfect choice for me (I really do not like S7/edge). I hope they will recover and will continue to support the user-base with good harware and software as well.

This CEO of theirs is like the Balmer of Apple, systematically destroying the legacy of the company's founder by doing the opposite of what he would do at most junctures.
Apple must hire their own version of Nadella before it's too late for them...
