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?
swirly, 03 May 2016"Fact is HTC 10 is not better than its competitors."
That's not a fact. That's YOUR opinion. ... moreLearn the definition of fact and opinion then we can have a discussion.
The HTC 10 does nothing better than the S7, Fact. The S7 does most things better thn the HTC 10
So how is it better than its competitors?
LOL . Grab a dictionary.
Anonymous, 03 May 2016Fact is HTC 10 is not better than its competitors.
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.
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. (pre-release phones :/) Other than that, its on par in almost every respect for app opening speed, if you can call that a test of a phones capability. Just looking at every single reviewer out there, they all day its fast and fluid so I dont know what you're saying.
Barsylyk, 03 May 2016Indeed. Combine Super AMOLED with its unnatural colors & this fantasy camera = Win. They k... moreYou do realize Samsung screens are the most accurate on any phone right? I hope no one takes your advice. You seem very uninformed.
The S7 definitely has a better warehousing experience but the HTC 10 should be commended for sticking to its roots.
aquaduzt, 03 May 2016well, just compare HTC10 shots with for example Huawei P9 and you find it very subpar - incred... morePA is a horrible site for reviews. It is more like a medicore tec-news site. I NEVER trust them. But I do like the camera on the htc10, it is not as good as s7, but more than enough for me to be happy. Camera is only one of many factors. And to be honest, the software looks better than the crappy tw. But the battery and design is a deal-breaker nonetheless.
Anonymous, 03 May 2016No brand offers build quality even close to HTC. They are all copying HTC's antenna lines though.Too bad it looks like a galaxy phone. Especially the front
GSMArena could you please spend more time on video recording test, like showing us some stabilisation tests, panning or just moving around with that camera.
Anonymous, 03 May 2016No brand offers build quality even close to HTC. They are all copying HTC's antenna lines though.Agreed. Unfortunately, Apple fans are still in denial thinking Apple came up with everything

Rafe Firmani, 03 May 2016HTC 10 body is a masterpiece compared to double glass of s7The front of the HTC is still glass, obviously. You act like because the back is metal you can treat it carelessly. And the HTC is quite bulky and thick too.
Yeah the performance is great for some parts but how about throttling and battery life? I'll take battery life over small performance advantage.
