It's not game-changing but it's worth having. HTC has spent a long time making it work right and it does work pretty good.

Your argument about amoled burn in made you lose any credibility you had. It isn't the year 2000. So continue to make stuff up. Stick to the facts.
24bit dac? GSM arena states it is not the best. LG and S7 is still on par
HTC advantage are you kidding me? LOL
Lets talk facts....
The inferior battery
The inferior screen brightness
The inferior Screen quality
The inferior Camera (though slightly)
The inferior construction (No dust or waterproof)
The inferior call speaker
The inferior loud speaker (should be called silent speaker)
The slowness exhibited in Youtube videos vs other flagships
Those are just a few FACTS. I hope you understand what facts are now, stick to them. So far HTC has the better selfie camera. That's a FACT.

The 10 is better for me because it caters more to my need, which is different than yours.
HTC 10 is better than its competitors because it has:
- an OIS-equipped front camera
- the capability of shooting a video with high-res audio
- BoomSound Hi-Fi speakers
- 24-bit DAC
- the capability to playback audio in FLAC format
- an exquisite industrial design with those chamfered edges
- great build quality
- minimal bezel
- the best-looking skin on the market, on par with Stock Android
- buttery-smooth and fluid Sense UI
- free of fragmentation of apps
- a creative and powerful theming engine
- HTC Advantage
- the ability to unlock the bootloader without voiding the warranty
- Uh Oh protection
- unobstructive capacitive nav-buttons, all the while having a capacitive home button instead of a clicky one
- solid-feeling sleep button and volume rocker
- SuperLCD 5 instead of AMOLED, so no worries of burn-in there
- USB-C with QC 3.0 to ensure further future-proofing
By the way, this argument is bordering on pointlessness and absurdity. I can't change your view, and you can't change mine. I won't respond to any replies. Period.

Regardless, you can't really argue that its 'optimised' better than any other phone, since there is no evidence of that.
What kind of 24bit DAC in the HTC 10? Similar in the LG V10 (32bit Sabre ES9028C2M DAC (digital to analog converter), and its Sabre9602c amplifier, which will allow the device to playback 24bit/192kHz hi-res tracks), or a Wolfson WM8281 chipset, just like in Marshall London phone? Thanks to anyone, if check it :)
The Dolby, Boomsound...etc...is only marketing, What is the truth?

So how is it better than its competitors?
LOL . Grab a dictionary.

Opinion is it might be better for you.
... more"Fact is HTC 10 is not better than its competitors."
That's not a fact. That's YOUR opinion. The 10 is worse in some places. But, the same can be said about the S7. Those areas where the 10 doesn't deliver just happen to not be my main area of focus when evaluating the best flagship phone for me.
"Opinion is it might be better for you."
"There are differences to the argument. Learn them."
What are you trying to say exactly?
"Though the S7 is a better phone I still wont buy it. But hey I can admit it is a better phone."
Good. I'm glad you can admit the S7 is a better phone. Like I said previously, you can have your opinion. Everyone should have the rights of free speech on the Internet.
"Something you are incapable of doing, but you call others fanboys."
See my first point. Berating someone because they have a different point of view than yours is primitive and immature.
I like this phone..Shame you Android guys cant ever get along..
Objectively, its not better but it's is not worse, at least in the US market where only the snapdragon s7 is sold. Battery life is important so I'd give the international S7 the win and say it's better for that reason only. For the US, things balance out.

It opens big games abnormally slow so it must be a software issue.

Just looking at every single reviewer out there, they all day its fast and fluid so I dont know what you're saying.
