..., 03 Jun 2016wait wait they renamed their warranty program and claim to give it for "free" warranty usuall... moreUh-oh protection is far more than warranty. Manufacturer warranties never cover damage due to use.
wait wait they renamed their warranty program and claim to give it for "free"
warranty usually comes with phone for 12 months
out of eggz, 02 Jun 2016they could have at least announced what the "token of appreciation" is...maybe then ppl could ... moreThey say it clearly ..."small" token of appreciation
Its not their fault if someone expected to get 50" LCD TV as a gift for buying the phone!?
A type-C cable...
We thought it was going to be high-res earphones or ice-view cases etc.
Richard2016, 02 Jun 2016$599 isn't bad $599? it's about $780 in Germany... in India as well, apparently. at that price point, a usb cable really is a small token. a very small token. i mean, it's something, but...
100 off on pre-order $599 awesome better price than iphone or Samsung , plus unlocked device works world wide , outstanding performance + one year free replacement if you dropped on water or concrete.... YEEEESSSS! + free extra cable OK no the best gift people waiting for more but no bad deal . Samsung limited the device to be only available under contract so you pay more don't matter what if you paid in full still locked to 2 year contract? and paid more for your service, apple... well I'm more fan or exclusive product no what every buddy else have ... plus look very feminine to me .
Meanwhile Samsung gives free VR with the phones which are already better priced and better quality, with better hardware... who on earth can buy HTC? You can get S6 edge for just over £300 and get free VR (£99 worth), or S7 edge (which is in any measurable way better) for like £450 and get the same or spend £549 on HTC and get what ... £3 USB-C cable (and you actually "missed the deal")? You must be joking HTC, good luck in Nokia's and Balckberry's party!
What kind of gift is that.... it is like they already anticipating one cable to fail so they including replacement in the package. I would understand something like fancy case or VR, or wireless charger (wait ... they don't have wireless charging ?!)... poor poor company... at least no to long to wait for them to go under..
Ching tau, 02 Jun 2016No matter what anyone says hardware is the best but software is laggy as hell on this device i... moreThe best ? compared to what - previous HTC maybe.. apple? At best hardware is the same as S7 (non edge) or G5... in no way it is better and in many areas actually lacking features.. Especially lacking design innovations.. it would be hard to tell the difference between M7, M8, M9 and now 10.. .that is disgrace...
If someone believes that cable is a small gift or does not need it can gave it to me - I would be very grateful to him :)
No matter what anyone says hardware is the best but software is laggy as hell on this device if company is wondering why it's not selling well than try removing lag and put some nice animations in firmware that might help and don't release the 'S' variat just yet.
