5 things we would like to see in the HTC One M10 (a.k.a. Perfume)
posted by Paul K. / Jan 28, 2016, 9:27 AM
The HTC One M10 is still quite the mystery. In fact, we've heard so little about this phone that we aren't even sure whether it will be called "One M10". The scarce reports that we have about it say that the device's codename is Perfume and that it will follow the design language of the late 2015 HTC One A9.
Even so, the refresh date for the One M9 is approaching and we can't help but expect HTC to announce a new flagship some time in the first quarter of this year. Whether it's going to be at the upcoming MWC or at a separate event at a later date – we have no idea.
What we do know, however, is that the One M9 certainly didn't impress many, as users flocked around competitors' devices, and HTC kept bleeding throughout 2015. The One A9 injected some life back into the revenue stream, but certainly not enough to turn the ship around.
So, it's obvious that HTC will want to produce a very special flagship in order to draw consumer attention back to its products. And we certainly hope that it does. In fact, here are some of the features we'd like to see added / improved / kept in the HTC One M10 (Perfume).

How could you forget battery life? Surely the most important issue especially since most HTC phones have such mediocre battery life.

The HTC One M8 had a good battery life - one of the best when it launched -, which was comparable with that of the Galaxy S5. It's only in 2015 that the battery life became mediocre, thanks to the Snapdragon 810.

I am tagging along with PapaSmurf as well on this one. I tried so hard to like the M8 and M9, but the battery life on both of them were just not up to the standard. Even going back to M7, gosh that thing was SO bad with the battery. I could leave the house at 9. By the time I got out of school/work around 6:30PM, I would be at 20% left, and I didn't even have much time to use it... (Got the Note 2 after a week of M7, and that thing would seriously lasted 2 days!)

Some of those changes might be enough to satisfy a small crowd, but none of those 5 things can't help to boosting its sales significantly. Xperia Z5 fits the bill and they too are losing badly as HTC. They need to accept new reality if they wanna live. They aren't on the same league with the big boys anymore. - Get rid off Cher Wang. She has been misleading you. According to her, A9 supposed to be your hero device. - Get rid of Boomsound. Though online communities appreciete it, it doesn't really help sales. Online communities usually are delusional as well your CEO. - Copy Huawei Mate design language which is copied from One Max. While HTC messed its own design, Huawei perfected it. - Copy Xiaomi's online only model, consequently its great value for price offerings. - Try new things, even upstart Chinese brands doing this.

Don't listen to online phone users (except Guaire) or the sitting CEO, Copy chinese companies, try "new" things. Hope it's not too late to get this info to them before the m10.

Do you remember that sitting CEO's apologize from shareholders and her promise them for making a hero device? What has happened? A ridiculously overpriced midranger worse it's widely branded as an iPhone copycat. Listening sitting same CEO who did make their stocks hit the bottom is a brilliant idea. Don't you see that while those despised "Chinese" brands are growing relentlessly, old boys are sinking constantly with all that their praised features like front firing speakers, water and dust proofness and softwares not to mention their well known brand status? Who knows, maybe trying same things over and over finally they can get a different result. My bad, copying what successful ones doing was a terrible idea.

Boomsound speakers are a signature for htc devices. They just need reduced bezels along with it. The phone also needs a release before the S6 and G5.

- great photos and camera with top quality sound recording. - great battery life 2 days of "above average" usage, which would be really big competition advantage among other flagships in these days.. you know.

BoomSound is, to me anyway, superfluous and not value added. Seriously, if you listen to music on your phone, buy headphones. That one time you tell your friends "Listen to how good these sound" is pretty worthless, and I'm sure nobody wants to hear your music.
