HTC 10 early adopters should be receiving their "thank you" gifts

HTC 10 early adopters should be receiving their
Shortly after unlocked models of the HTC 10 started shipping, those that pre-ordered the device received emails from HTC thanking them for ordering the new flagship, and that they should keep an “eye out for a package in the next couple weeks.”

We offered some glamorous guesses as to what the small token of appreciation might be. As it would happen, none of our guesses were correct, but gifts are gifts, and gratitude is gratitude.

HTC sent its fans an extra USB-C cable. No, it is not extravagant, but it is on-target. The global smartphone user base is at the tipping point of a massive adoption of the new universal connection. While many of us may have dozens of traditional micro USB plugs scattered about, if we needed an extra Type-C cable, chances are we have not built up a proper inventory. HTC also points out that UH OH Protection is available at no extra cost.

So there it is. If you were an pre-order customer, and have not yet received your “thank you” gift from HTC, sit tight, you should receive it any day now. And to HTC we say, “Thank you for making such a great device in the HTC 10.” If you have been thinking about picking up an HTC 10 for yourself, check out our review of the flagship, we think you will like what you see.

Gee thanks HTC. I would be more happy if you didn't make that phone carrier exclusive and drop 10 Lifestyle on free market for price that rest of the world was paying for standard version(Poland). I was rooting for you now idgaf anymore.

I pre-ordered this phone from day phone and after over a month of waiting , I received it, used it for another month and returned it back because I can't do without my BlackBerry Passport SE. I thought I was gonna get rid of the BlackBerry instead. About 2weeks ago the FedEx guy rings my apartment bell and I wasn't expecting anything instead I got handed over this package from HTC. What am I gonna do with a USB-C? My current phone is still on the regular USB and I also thought I won't be getting anything since I returned the phone back to HTC.

I don't think they figured that these gifts were going to be used by people who returned their devices. The HTC 10 has USB-C, which is why they gift would've made sense.

A more useful gift would have made more sense. Like their high Def earphone or the the new ice view case. Giving out an extra USB-C cord makes no sense.

Considering most people are probably making the switch to USB-C when they went with this device, extra cables are something most people invest in when making a switch like that. I did when I picked up my 6p. But I get it, since you no longer have a USB-C device, it's, for the meantime, useless.

Well I do certainly enjoy my HTC earphone(S) The sound is amazeballs! But another USB-C cable would be handy for my car... Unfortunately I pre-ordered mine trough an carrier (alltho Finnish carriers sell unlocked versions so that's nice) BTW an amazing phone!

@massi, my phone is US version so it came without earphone. That's a miss.

What? The vive cost more than the HTC 10 by itself. Unless you are saying that you have pre ordered the vive and are(or is it is) expecting it.

That's all they have to give out . Everything else is out of stock or doesn't exist!
