Can HTC swim back up to the surface with the HTC 10?

Can HTC swim back up to the surface with the HTC 10?
Due to one reason or another, HTC has not been in the greatest of the shapes in the past couple of years. Lackluster sales made the Taiwan-based company bleed money almost each and every quarter. Despite being good all-around devices, One M7's successors simply did not click with the average Joe. The forgettable mid-range phones were not very successful either.

Yet today HTC has the chance to turn over a new leaf and prove it has learnt from its past mistakes. The HTC 10 will become official in just a couple of hours, and looks promising, all things considered. 

In your opinion, will the HTC 10 be able to get the fallen giant back up on its feet? Or fail and turn out to be yet another nail in the coffin? Share your thoughts with us!

If they truly deliver one what they say they will then HTC definitely has a chance to turn it's bad fortune around.

I belive their weakest point has been in the CAMERA department. If they deliver on that and push enough BATTERY juice. Well why not?

IMO it looks on par with the 6/6S and better than the G5 But IMO the S7, 6P, SE and Xperia X and Mi 5 look better

If HTC 10 were an actor it would get an Oscar for lead role for sure :)

I personally believe that they will be able too..! I can hardly wait to see the release in a few hours. Only issue I see is reading all the posts, no one seems to be happy with all characteristics of any one phone. But we the people could design our own phone (every component) & would still not be happy..!

Exactly, there's always something we dislike about a phone no matter how good the phone may be.. For instance I find the iphone 6/6s very attractive but most people still come up with a way to say its an ugly phone (I admit, the plus versions are less attractive though). But as for me, my dream phone will be a phone that has 1. off the charts build quality, 2. A world class camera, 3. An incredible battery life, 4. Incredible dual audio system, 5. Fingerprint scanner, 6. An awesome screen, 5.2" or lower, 7. Ir blaster, 8. Fm radio, 9. Almost stock android (with some features though) and finally 10. A unique/special feature whatever it might be ala force touch for example.

The only thing they have been lacking is camera, if they are done with it this time they surely are coming back to track.

I need a screen bigger than 5.5 to even consider to buy a phone otherwise seems like a nice phone

It's looking good, still not sure what my next smartphone will be. S7 is boring and hardly innovative, the G5 is ugly af. Maybe this'll spark my interest? Go HTC! You can do it!

They can if they stay true to their words and actually defend their reputation better..

Nah not really, but it'll definitely put them on the right track to helping them get back. I reckon many people might not buy this regardless of how good it might be (except it absolutely blows everything out of the water) and even that might not be guaranteed to make them a hit (in the hands of consumers not on reviews).. However, the follow up on a great device might be the key to taking them back to the top. That not withstanding, I'm most probably getting myself the black one..

So many useless topics in Phonearena these days, have the editors something else to do when they're bored?

It's the question whether they can resurrect.

I'm really trying...like trying really hard to like phone but it's just so ugly...im sorry but anyone who thinks otherwise has really some taste issues....the phone tries to be like samsung (home button , fingerprint )...nexus (weird top speakers), iphone (ugly bottom speakers) and gosh that bezel is so huge, i dont know is "huge bezel" the new sexy or something?....im sorry but i think that Htc needs to fired its whole design department...

I really wonder why do you people think that because other people think otherwise, their tastes must be bad. It is just like a person's mother. She may be ugly to every other people but her child may feel she is the most beautiful person in the world. Just because YOU find it ugly does not make it an ugly phone. If you can't like it, then just buy other brands.

The person who made the 10 is stupid to downgrade the design instead of improving it. It's looks like a cheap china phone. Can't believe htc stooped down to this level from offering premium and unique designed phones in the past

yeah right.. its totally fine if they just use M9 design languange and reduce its bezels.. or just reuse X9 design, its alot better than this one

This is a nice looking phone your out of your nuts. In no way looks cheap.

Can't comment until announcement. If it live the hype for sure it can make great comeback. I think if reviewer get convinced about camera then we have a new winner here.

Camera or battery life might still suck, who knows. It's about thew whole package though, need to see hands on and reviews first.

I think this phone definitely put HTC back in the game.

There's a good chance they'll get back up, but to pull back some customers they need to humble down with their price a bit.
