HTC 10 64 GB seemingly not coming to the US
posted by Florin T. / Apr 13, 2016, 1:06 PM
At the moment, an unlocked HTC 10 32 GB costs $699.99, but you can use a promo code to get the price down to $599.99. The new smartphone should start shipping in early May. Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint will all offer the device on select plans, while AT&T doesn't seem to be interested in carrying it.
Replacing the One M9, but looking more like the One A9 (at least when viewed from the front), the HTC 10 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Sense 8.0 UI, and brings plenty of attractive features - including front and rear cameras with OIS, a 5.2-inch Quad HD Super LCD 5 display, Qualcomm's powerful Snapdragon 820 processor, and 4 GB of RAM. Until we get the chance to thoroughly test the handset, check out our HTC 10 specs review.

Is there some rule or law why OEM's can't release large NAND size phones in the US, besides Apple? I mean really...

It's simple... You are paying $100 for the extra 32GB NAND on iPhone but you could get 128GB of SD Card for less on Android phones!

Seems the carriers are forcing the low capacity. They want users to go cloud and drain the data so that they can charge more.

No, it's more about HTC decision based on their sell statistics. It just means they aren't confident enough they will outsell s7, and taking the low risk route. Reasonable, since they were rock bottom last year. Cloud and data drain applies only for Google and Apple.

Hopefully it will come to the UK. First device that gets released with SN820 or better with a decent camera and 64GB+ gets my money. Going from a Galaxy S6 128GB to 32GB feels to much like a downgrade.

This was going to be the phone for which I leave the iPhone 6S Plus for, but now I will wait on iPhone 7 Plus. I am tired of the United States being overlooked for higher capacity upgrades even if we have access to a microsd card. We should always have an option. We already pay a trillion dollars for these phones anyway. This is a fight about options and choices, and the fact that HTC and Samsung are removing those choices away from the United States citizenry. That is all.

It is much cheaper, but not even comparable. The iPhone's storage dusts the fastest SD cards. I still preordered a 32GB HTC 10, but I will definitely miss the storage speed of my 6S Plus when I'm not using it.

While I agree the iPhone's storage is faster (fastest currently available in a mobile phone) I think the SD Card storage makes a lot of sense - the 32GB should cover most apps and you can use the SD card for more memory hogging content such as films and music, where speed isn't particularly important, like using an external hard drive on a PC.

Indeed, the performance difference is huge, you can get 128GB fairly cheap but it's not the same . Also adaptable storage isn't being supported, manufacturers don't want them to compromise the experience with their devices. Until we have sdcards that support 200MB/s+ and an interface and SoC that can handle it then they won't will jump on-board. We have neither right now, from tests I've done with a Galaxy S7 (Exynos) the sdcard performance was limited by the interface/SoC and not the sdcard, only providing about half the performance it was capable of..

Does theveryone HTC 10 let you use the SD card as internal storge, like in stock Marshmallow?

Yes I just looked it up and the HTC 10 supports the adoptable storage feature of Marshmallow.

I much prefer having at least 64GB internal SSD storage. Even though it'll mostly remain in the phone, the MicroSD card would be going back and forth between my Surface Pro, MicroSD to USB adapter and the SmartPhone. That way, I can rely on the phone without any expansion, and use the expansion for just those large album and app backups, similar to how I'm currently doing on my OnePlus One (only 22GB remaining).
