Helio X10 comes in Turbo and Non Turbo versions. And even turbo version which is used in X9 is available in smartphones costing less than $200. So yeah, charging a bomb for that chip with very outdated and weak GPU is idiotic at best.

Samsung was laggy till galaxy s4
After that i never purchased sammy phones.
Neither recomended anyone.
And htc is faster and has the smoothest ui on android.
If u dont believe go compare any phone
Last time i did it desire 816 vs grand 2.
Grand was significantly slower and had poor quality hardwares like camera
And my friend htc is best android brand in terms of ui.
I m not biased.
Now they have a good ui(samsung)
But i dont know how much efficient it is.
You got price cut in US but rising in India ??? How ridiculous it is?????
AnonD-92238, 26 May 2016HTC gone nuts, asking 25k for Helio x10!!! I'm seriously scared of the 2 Nexus coming. idk wha... moreHelio X10 comes in both a cheaper and a premium variant. The HTC One ME was the most premium implementation of that SOC - it utilises all of mediatek's tech - power amp for audio, instantfocus and NR for camera, TrueBright and HiFi audio with 4K video recording, 2K HD screen, clear image zoom and stabilizatiom (all these also seen in Xperia M5 except for 2K screen). For stuff like that, its worth 20k+. But the X9 has only a 13MP camera so we'll need to see if its really worth it....

HTC 10is much less. Yes please.
WOW! Another failed product by HTC. Samsung does provide service for their products so overpricing product is some what justified for Samsung but HTC,Hell No they don't have proper service center in India once you break your HTC device you are not gonna repair your device due to lack of service or overpricing for service.
Its just buying overpriced Chinese phone I would rather go for one plus 3 or zenphone 3 for half of what HTC is asking.

Hardly any flagship was ever laggy ( have not owned the original S, but S2 was definitely fast and still is). This is typical Samsung hater excuse - people who have not used Samsung and actually don't know.

Please think globally, it is not just what you see in your country. See by your self over there. If you like HTC 10 with that price, go ahead,but Indian people have their own preference.
Somebody has already comment that HTC 10 price in USA down from $648 to $548. What does it meant?

Also, phones are like a 100$ cheaper in those countries. All thx to the Tax laws in those respective countries.

Most of the times, high-specs flagships will cost more than what the monthly standard salary of a person is. That is why most places give the option to pay for electronics in installments, so earning less a month than what a device costs does not become a reason to refrain from buying an expensive-luxurious device.

They mainly all look the sandlot touch Wiz is nothing to be proud of. Apple, OMG, really. It's not status. It's common as muck. Personally I prefer the HTC A9 and 10 for timeless quality. Maybe they should increase the price then people would say it's a status symbol. When something is classy, it's speaks for itself without it being broadcast. I mean this generally.
HTC 10 launched not long ago. Verison (USA) sell it $648. Look like not many people buy it. Now they give big discount $100, so only $548.
I think still not help with $100 discount.
When are gonna see the review of HTC One X9 comes out?
Please review it, thanks.
Can anybody confirm whether they are providing the high res earphones. Then it is not such a bad bargain after all. It is reported that The us and Europe are not getting the earphones.

I have used M8 eye and now on M9 plus. HTC has one of the best designs and their performance not lags like samsung. Audio quality is +++ better than Apple. This is the reason HTC phones are overpriced (but in comparison to Samsung and Apple) they are value for money. Thanks
