Does the HTC 10 strike your fancy?

Does the HTC 10 strike your fancy?

The dust surrounding the new HTC 10 has subsided a bit, but it's by no means going out of our scope. Quite the contrary, in fact: we're hopeful that HTC has nailed it this time. Indeed, the HTC 10 could very well turn out to be the HTC device we've been waiting for in the past few years.

So far, there is hardly anything that about the phone itself that does not sound good, at least on paper. The hardware aspect is seemingly a no-compromise one, the design has been revised and so far seems appealing to the regular Joe / plain Jane, and finally, HTC could have finally delivered in the camera department. The last one was one of the main issues the One M8 and M9 suffered from.

So, what is your say? Do you like what you're seeing or are totally not impressed with the new metal champ on the block? Would you get one once it hits the shelves? Vote in the poll below

Yeah, even compared to my OnePlus One, I think it's a downgrade with it's average battery, lack of NFC support, lack of quick charge technology, flimsy-plastic back, and the OS (stock Android with tiny changes) is very dull and almost limited like iOS compared to Cyanogen OS.

Oxygen OS is really immature, and the performance dips are really noticeable..button placement is even worse

HTC doesn't have a away better camera... All reviews are pointing towards a bad camera performance. Bad dynamic range, washed out colors, over exposer and lack of proper focus... HtC can never make a good camera phone... Reviews have killed my excitement about htc10...

Optimization of the oxygen OS is poor. I had hands on with a unit at a store and the 1+2 doesn't feel faster than the 1+1. Design is a step backwards as well. Not to mention the speakers too. Well I heard that oxygen marshmallow update makes the 1+2 feels a lot faster

it just didn't feel right in my hands, nor the performance was consistent.

SN810 ruined that phone, they claimed to have it under control but that was a lie.

until i hold the phone in my hand, i wouldnt be able to tell...if it feels like the A9, i will be impressed, provided the speakers deliver what HTC promised. was impressed with the Priv, but when I held it in my hand, it just did not click, so i dont want to judge this device

Really surprised by the results. It's an iPhone front with Samsung keys and HTC back. The physical home button is what disgusts me most. Will squeeze one more year from my M8 and Lumia 950 I guess

Other companies spend billions doing R&D to refine experiences, why shouldn't other companies learn from them? it would be unwise and expensive to start from scratch

Its is capacitive, you dont need to press it like samsung and iphone.

The Home one? Huh, that's good news!!! Great, even! Must have skipped it in the flood of articles :) Still feeling uneasy about buttons being too close to the bottom. I'm primarily using the phones with one hand and the Back button seems impossible to reach that way.

when they implimented fingerprint scanner in power button, why on earth they need home botton. They would have made it with onscreen buttons... dman.. gorgeous phone with one damn fault.......

I bet your face could use a little touchin up but the world still has to deal with it. What I'm trying to say is that it's just, a button, whoopdeedoo. It's a beautiful phone just like the others

Sexy (Design & UI), Beautiful (Camera & Display), Powerful (Speakers & Performance).. Yes, HTC indeed hit all the right points to be my next phone :)

I think it's safe to say how much of an HTC fanboy you are. Not that there's anything bad in that.
