HTC 10 Q&A: Ask us anything

In case you've missed it, we just finished reviewing the HTC 10! Long story short - HTC nailed it this time and its 2016 flagship is a rather compelling, no-compromise handset. It won't be far-fetched to say that it's among the top 3 best phones so far in 2016, definitely standing out.

For one, we tried to answer most of the important questions about the phone in the review. If you're interested in the design, the display properties, system performance, camera quality, as well as battery life, we have already answered these in the review.

However, in case you want to know something obscure we have not talked about, feel free to do so in the comments section of this post. Well, actually, ask us anything HTC 10-related, we'll be glad to respond to as many if your questions as possible. The answers will be published in a separate post in a couple of days.

Your turn now.

How's the display legibility in daylight against S7 or G5, because you gave pretty terrible score in max brightness in your review? Also, it has not so comfortable excessive chamfered edges on the back and it is also wider then S7. Does it make it more uncomfortable to hold against S7 ?

The display legibility is adequate. The S7 can go higher though, but that does impact your battery.

how can you say that chamfered edges are not so comfortable if you never had this device in a hand? Anyway they are designed to make phone even MORE comfortable to hold so your statement is quite dumb.

How well does it take a fall compared to other phones. The clumsyness of humans is often the reason why a lot of us pick phones that doesn't break easily. Not because we can't afford it- But going through the hassle of ordering a new one or getting it fixed is annoying.

If your HTC 10 drops it will brake your tiles on the floor.

What do you think of HTC's stripped down new version of Sense mashing up with Vanilla Android?

It's super clean. Removed HTC apps can still be downloaded via PlayStore. Quick updates, no lag.

Hey Pete..I've read Chris' review, and i had a question about audio output. did you guys try the phone with other high-end phones, aside from the original ones? how did the phone perform with regards to audio quality and loudness?

Does the micro sd reader fully support UHS-II cards (i mean not in a UHS-I compatibility mode, but with full speed)?

In the review you said this "Quite frankly, this is by far the smoothest-running, non-Nexus Android device to grace our offices" If you were to rate the S7,G5, and HTC 10 on smoothes alone, what would you rate them 1-10? You can throw in a smoothness rating for the iPhone 6s and Nexus 6P if you want, just to put it in perspective of course.

What is the maximum brightness of the display with and without auto-brightness-control turned on? Is there a big difference?

Chris has done a very nice commendable review of HTC 10. Nothing over exaggerated and no flaw is over looked... I would like to ask that when HTC will fix the camera flaws? There is a very big flaw of not adjusting the exposure when tap on different areas of screen... fine detail is generally washed out, unlike Nexus 6p, which is very good in detail retention. Although both have same imx377... what is the reason that HTC is not able to copy the camera of Nexus 5x/6p properly? And is there any timeline from HTC to fix these flaws?
