HTC teases the "smoothest and fastest Android phone," the HTC 10

HTC teases the
The latest teaser for the HTC 10 comes from HTC India, and shows an image of the capacitive buttons at the bottom of the phone. The tweet that contained the image says, "Not all phones are created equal. The fastest and smoothest Android." HTC's next flagship phone is expected to be unveiled during an online presentation on April 12th.

HTC has its work cut out for it. With the Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and the LG G5 already available by the time that the HTC 10 is unveiled, many in the market for a new phone will have already committed themselves to Samsung or LG. And despite a number of teasers for the HTC 10 that brag about the performance of the camera, it remains to be seen what we can expect from HTC's new flagship model.

HTC has been trying to build a flagship phone that can take on all Android comers. So far, the manufacturer has been talking a good game, but we've heard optimistic comments before from the company only to be disappointed in the end.

But you believe other companies' (like Apple) teasers without even seeing it yet, right?

Apple don't do teasers, so your argument is invalid, and they generally do deliver by their word.

deliver what? old tech? for premium price? i understand apple logo is what you guys expect the most on the back of the phone well that is well delivered for sure. i will consider iphone if it will be at least 1080p for standard size + decent screen body ratio.

That argument you squids use gets funnier and funnier every time I read it. The fact that I can still run my iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S smoothly, and smoother than most phones is funny. Just kidding. Its not funny. Its great. The fact that my "old tech" inside my 6S+ destroys the VAST MAJORITY of 2015+ phones is hilarious, and even many current 2016 phones/flagships. Just kidding. It isn't funny. Its great, By the way, off-screen benchmarks by the 6S/+, LOL even the 6, destroy most 2014, 2015, and 2016 phones. You know, where the phone doesn't rely on pushing pixels like you fanboys cry about.

i had iphone 5s for about half year, it lags, it crashes same as other phones does, its a bit less than android its for sure, since its 2 screens and grid of icons what can lag there?!, but then, all these shortcomings, i swapped it, battery would not hold till end of the day, then new ones look its 2016 screen body ratio is joke, and screen itself is bs, i can see difference easy, you die hard apple fans cans see as well u just dont admit it. its 2016 all phones works flawless, and iphone all these transactions after unlocking etc are actually slower than android, so all these benchmarks you can put somewhere else, i bet half of android users tried iphone and there is real reason why we dont use them anymore. so your destroyer iphone is same fast as any 300 dollar phone difference is iphone has half of pixels and smaller screen in same body, and screen and body are most important things since wo dont do any hardcore rendering post processing on phones we consume media and chat. enjoy your destroyer i will enjoy my phone same price bigger display in same body more pixels and its amoled, i have sd card + other goodies, u can guess what phone is that, and its same speed, believe me i tried 6s as well.

You don't need to have the latest Android OS in order to get the latest security update.

You need to stop comparing iPhones with Android of yesteryear.

Ok every system has its strengths. If you want to power your OS, don't worry it to be buttery smooth. If you want colorful OS that just do basic stuff you will definitely get good user experience. One small thing, just try to make any other browser other than safari to be your default browser on your walled garden phone and you are genius.

Then why do you keep posting about it, when you don't like it? Choose other brand, whatever you like, dude. Owning one operating system device doesn't send you to the war with the rest of mobile platforms... Well, sometimes it does. When you are a troll, and you can not fight the urge to post not so intelligent things online.

But it's not about that. You can say old tech, but you can't pick up an iPhone, without any knowledge of what is inside and what you are looking at, and think "Wow, this feels so old and laggy!". Apple never claim to run the newest, they just provide something that works really well in all fronts and with incredible support. The only Android phone that competes in the all-in-one-device tchnology like the iPhone, is the S7, but even that doesn't have the support like the iPhone. My current device is Nexus 6P with N, only owned 1 iPhone (4s, wasn't/not a fan of iOS) so don't go cutting for the fanboy argument.

i dont care cpu model or speed on phone either, as long as it works its fine. pc would be different story, there its important. i have tired iphone 6s its very same speed as most 2015 android flagships, so i dont understand what you are talking here, what competition, speed wise all these phones does the job. i talk about other features what matters, screens since you look at them size since bigger screen means more u can see, but that is probably nothing special for you, since iphone loses in these categories, only thing you can speak of are some speed.. i understand its pointless to argue, since you will talk about that amazing speed all day. nexus 6p looks amzing phone by the way, i would like to try that one. i am not a fanboy of samsung or nexus or apple, i change hones every 6 months. i simply state my opinion and if i see some complete BS without any sense i like to explain my point.

You just assumed that no other specs matter to me but speed... But I just said nothing about speed, but said that Apple provide a good/great layer of everything - not the best of anything. No one on Android does that, and it's really annoying. Perhaps the sucky side of Apple is that they just adore bezels for some reason. Or at least Mister Ive does.

we should make voting, most important things in phone i guess most people would agree: 1. screen type resolution size/screen 3. battery 4. storage i think on all these categories iphone is good/great? well maybe but funny is that 400$ phones offer more in these categories, thats my whole point here.

Yup, like $400 Xiaomi Mi5 Or even Galaxy A7 (2016). S7 is way versatile in features than iPhone 6s+. But not eveyone wants it. Some people just want basic stuffs and not interested in what is advanced and complicated. Though Samsung too has Basic Mode in TouchWiz. :D

Actually when it comes to being smooth I'll believe HTC on word, Sense is the smoothest experience on Android since M7

Exactly! They have always been THE smoothest, but not the fastest. I really hope they nail it this time
