HTC-1

HTC has done a pretty poor job at keeping its upcoming flagship under wraps. We haven’t gotten too many official details from the company, but the phone has been leaking out pretty regularly over the past few weeks. We’ve seen official renders of the device in multiple different colors, some blurry hands-on images, and a good amount of leaked specs. Today we’re getting a good look at yet another image of the HTC 10 in the wild, this time with some benchmark scores.

Leaked HTC 10 with benchmark

As you can see, the image doesn’t reveal too much about the device’s aesthetics. The top of the phone is cut off by the image, and the only thing we can really see is the physical home button on the bottom.

When it comes to the AnTuTu benchmark, the HTC 10 is shown beating powerhouses like the Xiaomi Mi 5, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, iPhone 6s and Huawei Mate 8. Like I said before, HTC is remaining quiet about the device’s specifics, though rumors have been floating around that the 10 could feature a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 5.15-inch Super LCD 5 Quad HD screen, a 3,000mAh battery, a 12MP rear camera and a USB Type-C port.

The HTC 10 will be unveiled on Tuesday, April 12th at 8 a.m. EST. Does this phone have you excited? Let us know what you think in the comments.

  • King_Android

    This isnt a leak, HTC is releasing these. Thats the only reason they would take a picture of the screen results using a Galaxy instead of an actual screenshot using the phone.

    • Lady Adele Slam a Cow

      That is a HTC A9 not a Galaxy

      • truth

        Go clean your eyes man …

        It’s a Galaxy taking this picture.

        • gg

          Oh the irony, indeed!

        • Lady Adele Slam a Cow

          Virgin alert ⚠

      • No, it’s an Galaxy S7. The curved glass golden back, the antenna separator lines on top and the heartbeat sensor gives it
        away.

        • C Lo

          Or HTC could be copying Samsungs design and it is in fact the new A10 taking the picture.

          • neo905

            Or they just want to make clear this is a recent picture being taken.

        • Lady Adele Slam a Cow

          You’re wrong I have the gold S7 “doesn’t look like this

  • † Køld †

    overclocked fake score

    • KeyserSoze

      Hahaha, that severely overclocked phone overheated bursted into flames right after that photo was taken.

      • Gustash

        Just like the normal M9 without overclock!

    • Anthonydotcom

      Or maybe HTC worked with Qualcomm on taking full advantage of their SOC’s for once.

    • Diego

      Would you mind sharing your own?

    • illregal

      Samsung was more known for that.. Ya see, samsungs overclocked to a speed that you couldn’t achieve while just using the device. HTC never did that, it’s just ramped up to the highest attainable speed. Which is ok in my book. Plus, each and every result on that list would have the same thing happening. so, it is still on top of the list. What’s even more hilarious is how, even if the HTC scored over 20000 lower then the samsung it would still be faster in the series of “real world speed tests” where they go through and open a series of apps, and then do it a second time. HTC can software, Samsung simply cannot.

      • tanjiajun34

        I don’t think Samsung overclock their devices on a benchmark but like HTC they just go to their max clock frequency and locked there. They are both cheating as badly.

  • Ravi Mohan

    Nice work.

  • C Lo

    Always laugh when I see a dual core A9 chip and half the memory rubbing elbows with the SD chips. I gotta give Apple credit, they design/engineer stuff very efficiently

    • LeVvE

      They have 2 powerful cores instead of 4+ less powerful ones, different ways of doing things and most cases the less powerful ones comes ahead if the operating system supports it.

      • C Lo

        Very true. And I’m not trying to start a flame war. I think the SD820 is a beast. I think it’s just optimization again. Apple builds their hardware and software so they can optimize better whereas Android has a much more difficult time doing so. Still impressive to see these numbers. The HTC A10 looks like an insane performer.

        • LeVvE

          Yeah, I just don’t like people saying things like 2 cores better than 4? LOLOLOL, 1GHz vs your 1.3GHz and mine is faster? LOLOLOL. You can’t just compare it like that.

          I think iOS will forever be more optimized than Android just because of the nature of how Android works, Android is design to work on just about anything while iOS works on like 3 things so it’s so much easier to optimize for.

          I’d love to see how the iPhone worked when running Android.

          • C Lo

            Agreed. If both were running Android or iOS then that comparison could be made. But it really is an apples to oranges comparison.

          • EJ

            Or an “apples to lollipop/marshmallow” comparison, right?! LOL

          • David M Hunsinger

            Get out.

          • Adil Mudaser

            This is still the internet right? why are there no fights?

          • LeVvE

            I decided to show mercy for one day.

        • David M Hunsinger

          Beating out the best in a benchmark test is extraordinary, like the days of old for HTC let’s see how it stacks up in the real world, with the rumored qhd display and all

    • Renaldo Smith

      Yep cause ios is very simple and doesn’t need much power to do anything. Totally different os. If they were all running ios then we could talk about how good the dual core a 9 really is.

      • C Lo

        Well iOS is simplified in the sense it’s easier to do the same tasks I agree. For example, why have a settings menu for each individual app when you can have an aggregated settings menu for all apps. The same apps are available on both Android and iOS so functionality and productivity wise, both are on par with each other. I think Apple does a much better job offering native apps versus needing an app for everything though and Android offers much deeper and more robust customization (I like how you can set default apps for certain actions). Pros and cons on both sides which is why I like having a device from both.

        • illregal

          ios is typically more difficult to do a task. and unlike android, there are many that simply cant be done. As for all app settings in the settings menu, rather then in the individual apps themselves.. Personally I think that’s stupid.

        • Btort

          or just have both an iphone and a android flagship, problem solved

      • Diego

        No.
        Android, and the linux kernel it self, is very efficient at using low end hardware, Or am I missing something?
        Anyway, both of them should be nothing on modern CPUs.

        • chris pinkston

          Exactly. I wish people would stop over talking apple’s optimization. Have any of these people used Android 6.0+? Runs pretty well on hardware that wasn’t designed especially for it.
          Apple has bigger, more powerful cores period. Much like in the desktop space where Intel has less, more powerful cores but AMD usually has more cores available.
          The snapdragon 820 has near A9 performance per core but two more cores. I’d rather have that. This chip running stock Android will be a beast (Nexus).

    • Nibbler

      This is what happens when you design your own hardare/software and you don’t bloat your software with unnecessary skins or add ons and optimize it like a os hasn’t been optimized before lol

      • Btort

        touchshit is laggy POS

    • wikwakcow

      Android is more like a designer clothes, sometimes it is not functional and unlogical, but it is showing what you are.
      Ios is a uniform……. It even doesn’t let me sort the apps ascending. But it is efficient & logical.

  • jay

    If they get the price right….

    • C Lo

      What would be your “buy” price? I’m thinking $500-550

      • illregal

        Pricing a higher quality device lower then the other oems flagships would be kind of silly. Especially when it’s going to beat them in all key areas.

      • jay

        I think 500 CAD would be the real deal but not gonna happened

  • Diego

    Guys, don’t trust AnTuTu.

  • Chief

    The best thing about these scores is all the butthurt Samsung fanboys in the comments sections bitter that they jumped the gun and bought the S7 as soon as it came out.

    • Btort

      let them keep their touchshit, laggy POS skin

    • David M Hunsinger

      HTC used to be the benchmark king, I’m not sure why everyone is so shocked that the lighter skinned HTC sense out dukes everyone else, I’m sure this won’t stand long once a SD powered nexus device arrives.

      • Chief

        Well, the current Nexus 6P barely scores higher than the 2 year old HTC M8 so that is unlikely. I’m not knocking the Nexus line. I’m using a 6P now myself and it’s fantastic but Nexus phones were never intended to be world beaters. They are a combination of value and performance.

  • Γιώργος Τσέλιγκας

    Wow this is a true powerhouse
    Hope it lives up to the hype with equally amzing user experience

  • Steven Fox

    How the hell does it manage this score at 1440p? They must have overclocked the CPU to at least 2.4 GHz and the GPU by 10% I reckon.

  • Christopher W. Sanders

    HTC my fingers are crossed your y’alls sake. I really hope you can hit a TRUE “home run” against the other power house manufacturers. If so I’d love to give you my business yet again.

    It’s fake…

  • ConCal

    Good looking phine… But that front button/sensor looks awful.

  • WhereIsPolariS

    People who says we dont care about benchmarks and girls who claims they careless about penis size are alike

  • Dennis Wu

    LOL at all the butthurt people suddenly saying benchmarks don’t matter or this is fake. They wouldn’t be saying the same if their GaLaggy had these results, presents release and all. Phone hasn’t even come out yet or be reviewed, chill out haters

    • KeyserSoze

      LOL at you idiot illiterate Asian teens who say “butthurt” cuz you don’t know how gay it makes you sound. Learn a new Engrish word morons.

      • Dennis Wu

        Quite astonishing to encounter a racist fuck bag claiming to correct English and making homosexual references, altogether wasting time with personal attacks and not discussing the real subject matter.

        • KeyserSoze

          Can’t be anything “real” about the subject matter if an idiot Asian teen like you can chime in and say “butthurt” cuz you think it makes you sound cool like the white kids. Go back to your ESL class and learn some new vocab. Use your own words instead of copying somebody else’s like an uneducated ghetto boy.

          • Dennis Wu

            Keep going, you seem very passionate bashing idiot illiterate Asian teens saying “butthurt”. I never thought one could get so triggered about it. If I can’t learn some new vocab in ESL would you care to teach me some?

          • KeyserSoze

            “Keep going, ”

            I’ve already scarred you for life so my job is done. Good luck baiting people into insulting you though, lonely people need friends.

          • Dennis Wu

            Scarred me for life?? Hahaha you classic ignorant internet trolls love to make assumptions and call it a day. Scarred me for life, I haven’t learned a single lesson from your talk, because they contain no substance whatsoever. I have already proved that I speak perfectly fine English, since throughout this intriguing conversation you’ve been able to reply just fine, so clearly you understand what I’m trying to communicate. If anything, you are fucking uneducated with no talking points and trying to start a war on the internet where you can “hide”. I am curious to see how you engage with others (especially those of different ethnic backgrounds) in real life, as multiculturalism is quite prevalent in English-speaking countries. Have a good day Sir.

          • KeyserSoze

            “you classic ignorant internet trolls love to make assumptions and call it a day… If anything, you are fucking uneducated with no talking points and trying to start a war on the internet where you can ‘hide’. ”

            Tsk tsk tsk… all that anger and cussing only proves that my criticism was accurate and it cut you pretty deep. Enjoy the pain, I learned you a good lesson didn’t I? My job is complete.

          • Dennis Wu

            “all that anger and cussing only proves that my criticism was accurate and it cut you pretty deep.”

            Tsk Tsk Tsk… Another half assed assumption that proves the accuracy my criticism. Think what you want but your pitiful “criticism” still makes no sense and there is no lesson to take away from it. Perceiving my comment on your attitude as anger and butthurt (I’m sure you want to say it to also be cool like the white kids) should absolutely make you feel better about yourself. And well, if you’re happy, there’s nothing more that needs to go on here. My job is complete. Cheers.

          • KeyserSoze

            Yap yap yap babble babble… zzzzzzzzzzz….

          • Dennis Wu

            Yep, ignore my points and say you’ve “won” a pointless war that you started. Just as I expected, your IQ and entertainment never ceases to disappoint. If it makes you feel better just be happy and carry on, no shame.

          • KeyserSoze

            Whupped you good, China boy.

          • Dennis Wu

            LOL China? Not Chinese get your facts straight, not “gay”. Your entertainment is very appreciated, please tell me that Chinese and Asians are the same thing. Ignorance is strength.

          • KeyserSoze

            “Not Chinese get your facts straight”

            As if anyone else but you gives a sht, loser China boy. How’s it feel to be whupped?

          • Dennis Wu

            Talk about English when you can’t spell SHIT right. Just dodging everything like you didn’t start this whole thing. Being a phaggot white kid trolling the internet with a fake ass name gets you very far in life. Best of luck Sir.

          • Dennis Wu

            Whah Whah Whah…. I’m butthurt so I whupped this illiterate China boy… Whah Whah Whah… I’m a phaggot coward Internet troll who can give it and can’t take it so I use a fake ass name and judge people on their real name….. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz…..

          • KeyserSoze

            You mad? Hahahaha! WHUPPED!

          • Dennis Wu

            LOL hurt and mad?! You sound fucken fake AF it’s pathetic. You can’t handle or make sense of any of what I’ve said, and saying WHUPPED makes you feel so good doesn’t it? Feels good that you’ve edited your comments and still had to have China boy correct your spelling. Autism and Cancer is real, you should check with a doctor who would be Asian too LOL.

          • KeyserSoze

            Cry some more little girl. Bitch-slappin’ you feels good!

          • Dennis Wu

            Whine some more phaggot coward, it’s very entertaining. Ur so mad on the inside but you hide like any fake dumbshit would. Waste of oxygen supply on this planet. “cry some more” LMFAO get a life loser.

          • KeyserSoze

            Turned your world into sht didn’t I? Can’t handle living anymore can you? It’s best to find a high ledge and jump, you know you want to.

          • Dennis Wu

            LOL I would jump but you’re too amazingly funny to talk to. Love how you still can’t spell SHIT. All this hate you’re throwing just emphasizes your BUTTHURT. Keep crying and let the BUTTHURT flow freely through your anus. If you can’t feel it, I suggest you go see a China boy doctor, there is likely a problem.

          • KeyserSoze

            Headline: “Prepubescent gay China boy hari-karied his own weak little ass today after incompetently losing trash-talk battle on internet.” Hehe… priceless!

          • Dennis Wu

            Even more priceless? Your BUTTHURT.

          • KeyserSoze

          • KeyserSoze

            Me China boy. Me no speekie Engrish, no understan funny. Can’t make funny joke, pee-pee too small. Hahahaha!

  • MiquePraktik

    home button not centered!?

    • Derek

      I agree. It looks odd. If it is just about looks, then center that button! However, people have said that on other phones where the fingerprint sensor is centered, they tend to accidentally press the screen instead.

      Perhaps HTC made this choice as an ergonomically correct choice.

      I think bevels and chins, etc serve a meaningful purpose. They stop us from accidentally touching the screen. If they can just slim those things down as much as possible without causing accidental finger slippage, then it is a good thing.

      • Karl

        I think that space above the fingerprint scanner is for the HTC logo. Look at the A9, same button placement. There will be a logo in the front most likely

  • scottalias

    I liked my HTC Desire but I don’t think this, or any other phone, is going to make me want to leave Fi network any time soon.

  • Isa Love

    If it has boomsound I am buying it

    • fourthstooge

      Not like the M9 and M8,

      Boomsound is just some hardware and software inside the device (and more importantly it’s a marketing term). It has nothing to do with where sound exits the device. In my opinion, the engineers had it right, when they designed the exits so that the direction of the sound waves moved forward and hit your face, and a strong pleasing stereo effect was achieved by having the sound exit from both sides of the screen when you held it in landscape mode, as if you were watching a small LED flat screen TV.

      LightStruk stated: I have a One M8, and I bought it specifically for the loud, front-facing, stereo speakers. I use those speakers every day! I can watch videos without cupping my hand around the bottom bezel like you have to with an iPhone, and the stereo separation is obvious. I can turn my phone around and show some friends what I’m watching, and they don’t have to alternate between pointing the speaker at their ear and watching the video. I put it on my kitchen counter and listen to podcasts as I cook. I turn on music and sit it on the table while playing with my toddler. The sound that comes out is actually tolerable!

      So, I believe Stereo FF speakers are just as necessary as a colour display.

      • Derek

        If the reports are correct, HTC will have replaced front facing speakers with one bottom firing speaker and one front facing speaker through the ear piece on the face of the phone.

        The bottom firing speaker on the “leaks”, if they are to be believed, look very similar to those on the iPhone 6s. I have listened to audio through the iPhone 6s and the sound is not bad at all.

        If HTC keeps at least one front facing speaker and the sound quality is as good if not better than the iPhone 6s, then it isn’t all that bad. It would be pretty good. It also sounds like they have some audio enhancement in the software.

        Although I would miss the dual front facing speakers, having this alternative is better than going over to an inferior UI like touchwiz or LG’s. I can’t stand those.

        I think HTC is making some big changes, but perhaps it will be good. We shall see soon.

  • Jason Barron

    Honestly if this, and all the other leaks represent the successor/replacement to the “M” line, and it isn’t a feint somewhat like the M9/M9+ of last year, or a hyped up A10 (which is what I hope), but that they truly have given up on the dual, stereo, front firing speakers that make BoomSound so iconic; then I have to say HTC will have become dead to me and probably a not-insignificant number of other HTC fans.
    Stock Android is awkward, and although generally faster, and somewhat “smoother” than the skins, it lacks user friendliness, and simplicity.
    Sense, of all the skins I’ve had the opportunity to play with is by and far the best, and I find each iteration gets slightly better… with the exception of blinkfeed.
    The camera on the M8 was… good at low light if lacking performance elsewhere, and is still faster than an S6’s (don’t have anything newer from Samsung to test against it) to actually take and save a picture. S6 does open the app substantially faster.
    I haven’t had much experience with the M9’s camera save to be disappointed by its low light performance.
    The M9, as I understood it, suffered from the SD810’s overheating issues worse than its peers precisely because HTC attempted to push the silicon as far as they possibly could given its limitations, found they pushed too far, then had to patch slower due to real world usage scenarios (which is inexcusably bad firmware engineering from my viewpoint).
    I don’t really care about who has the biggest e-peen benchmark, since very few benchmarks of any kind are able to fully and accurately simulate a wide enough array of real-world scenarios. Some get very close, but that’s about all. What matters to me is how they perform my individual workflow and recreational usage (games, videos, etc). So far the “M series” has outperformed my other options in the same price class.
    To summarize; most “M series” fans would love a better camera and sexier screen, but will walk away without *real* BoomSound, and if given the fourth generation of meaningful BoomSound, will begrudgingly put up with yet another generation of otherwise “meh” camera and screen, as long as at least incremental improvements were made. Good luck HTC, I for one will mourn your death if this is truly the path you have chosen.
    “Full disclosure”; Including the models co-branded as Cingular phones, I have been using HTC phones since 2004, running windows mobile 5, 6, 7, and Android 3.x.x through 6.x.x . BoomSound is what brought me back to them from LG and then Samsung.

  • Derek

    “We’ve seen official renders of the device in multiple different colors, some blurry hands-on images, and a good amount of leaked specs. ”

    Official renders? I was not aware those “digital drawings” aka “renders” were officially from HTC. I was aware they were made from unknown sources and also known fans. THEY ARE ARTWORK not official renders!

    Way to go Android Authority…false or exaggerated reporting at its finest!

  • Chase Primus

    Super excited about this phone! Will definitely pick one up when they come out!

    • Derek

      I am super excited too. I am really hoping HTC comes through on this one. I am definitely “picking one up” when they come out too…to see for myself how it looks, feels and works. But I will hold of the temptation to buy until some real life usage opinions get published. Then, if all is well, I will gladly hand my money over to HTC for this phone. June…looking at June.

      • fourthstooge

        Hold off on your purchase. You’ll just get disappointed. The new Nexus phone (built by HTC) that should be out soon will be what we all want. It will have the dual FF stereo speakers, and all of the other great specs. If you don’t believe me, then ask yourself why would HTC just use the internet to launch the HTC 10. It’s a lame launch because they know that the new Nexus is even better.

  • fourthstooge

    Nice that it’s fast. But, what everyone seems to forget is that a successful successor device needs to have all the great technology available in the market that can be packaged together. The reason the M9 didn’t do well is because it ran hot initially, the camera was poor, and had no Image Stabilization, and it did NOT have a biometric reader of some type that is needed for future secure commerce transactions.

    Note though that any company that removes a great feature like front-facing STEREO speakers from an existing product on its next iteration has engineers with mushy brains. If this ends up being true, then it’s likely that the “Perfume” phone will be another weak seller, like its predecessor. Even Samsung brought back a microSD slot on the Galaxy S7. There are NO good reasons to remove the stereo speakers. Right? One keeps improving, not removing good stuff. Time will soon tell us how mushy those brains are. The Galaxy S7 Edge is the way to go till some company can create a follow up flagship device with FF stereo speakers.

    If smartphone users think that stereo speakers should not be part of their multi-media experience when using the device, then they should ask themselves, “would they buy a TV without stereo speakers – like it was in the 70s – great mono sound?” If you added speakers to your TV, would you face the speakers towards your couch, or would you face them to the side or back walls? If the smartphone plays back HD video, then the smartphone should play back stereo sound. It just makes sense. Of course, both large and small multi-media smart devices should also have jacks for earplugs or headphones when privacy is required. This just makes sense too. Right?

    I also watch youTube videos on my M9. I hold up my phone and watch different types of clips with it, while I’m lying down. Those FF stereo speakers make a huge difference. I can watch John Oliver (Last Week Tonight) clips in HD, and the stereo sound is awesome. My next portable computer (which will just happen to make phone calls as well) MUST have stereo sound (without accessories), and if HTC does not offer it in a few years, then I’ll be buying someone else’s smart multimedia personal assistant device.

    Boomsound is just some hardware and software inside the device (and more importantly it’s a marketing term). It has nothing to do with where sound exits the device. In my opinion, the engineers had it right, when they designed the exits so that the direction of the sound waves moved forward and hit your face, and a strong pleasing stereo effect was achieved by having the sound exit from both sides of the screen when you held it in landscape mode, as if you were watching a small LED flat screen TV.

I put it on my kitchen counter and listen to podcasts as I cook. I turn on music and sit it on the table while playing with my toddler. The sound that comes out is actually tolerable!

    So, I believe Stereo FF speakers are just as necessary as a colour display.

    • Derek

      dude…you keep repeating the same post over and over again in each article. I have read your mushy brains comment at least a dozen times before.

      • KeyserSoze

        He’s a dumb-ass internet noobie that hasn’t learned how to quickly state his main points yet. He doesn’t get that nobody cares to waste time reading a 5000-word dissertation in a blog forum. Two very brief paragraphs is about all I’ll give you time for.

        • Derek

          I would say he is more of a “troll”. Well, maybe not a troll, but someone who just copies and pastes into every article.

    • Karly Johnston

      Dude… most people use their phones around others with headphones. When they are by themselves there is usually something around that has better speakers than a phone.

      • fourthstooge

        I’ll just make a couple of points. If you are like those most people, and if the quality of sound can be cheapened, and thus acceptable, then would you consider the same cheapening for the display? Would you consider a smaller screen, a grey scale screen, or a screen with cheapened specifications? After all, it’s just a phone, right. Well, I believe, if you are interested in using a flagship device as a powerful personal computer that can achieve multiple objectives, then the device should strive to do all of those things with the highest of specifications possible. Not sure how many people use their smartphones for watching HD Video. But even if they represent the minority, then the device manufacturer should be providing HD high-quality screens with high-quality audio. I am making this case not to knock HTC, but all high-end smartphone manufacturers that believe they can cut corners, by not providing proper stereo sound. People have multiple senses, and one of them is hearing, and I doubt you are deaf. HTC is just dumb removing a strong element of their devices that did help differentiate them from their competitors that chose to cheapen the sound experience.

          Your screen argument makes little sense when it is used 10-100X more than internal speakers. Audio output is done through BT to a set of speakers that is far better than will ever go into a phone. If i listen to music in the car it is BT… in the house BT, even my headset is BT. If i am away from BT, the internal speaker is adequate but that is 1-2% of the phones total usage, like short stuff on the go. It isn’t enough to be a primary selling point which is why HTC is dying.

            You obviously use your device more for music. And that’s fine. But these devices are also being used to playback HD video – those pre-produced, and those that the user may have just recorded with the video camera. For this reason, the high-quality audio needs to be there. It’s already there with the M9. Why cheapen it?

          • Karly Johnston

            Video Editing is your primary reason for internal speakers? That still doesn’t make sense, you would use headphones if you need to edit the audio track. Most people would do it on a computer first but to each their own.

    Don’t tell me the speakers are below the home button .. looks like a mesh to me for the grill

  • Andrew Lyons

    This looks like a Samsung.

    I ve always said why not apple install ios in a samsung flagship phone lets see how it goes as well as install android 6.0 on iphone 6splus lets see how that fairs up with the dual core

  • Ivan

    People complain when Android OEMs like HTC, SAMSUNG, HUAWEI, LG, MOTOROLA etc ditch to use SD cards. But when it’s come to Apple iPhone, no comments were made about removable memory (SD cards)?. Why Apple never use SD cards??

  • Marty

    Nice. Nothing uncommon, though. HTC devices usually are more powerful. My M8 certainly is more powerful than anything else in it’s category.

    Be Together, not the same! Stop the hate for another android device, just remember android slogan,
    United we stand, divided we fall!

    • Roy

      That what Cap said.

    • KeyserSoze

      Slogans are for Kool-Aid drinkers, I don’t buy into slogans… not for Android or for Apple.

    I love how well htc phones run! The M7 I gave my daughter is faster than my current LG g4, and built sturdier. I hope they fixed the camera issues while keeping everthing else great, so that I can switch back to htc!

  • David M Hunsinger

    I’m really excited for this device, having been an HTC owner (previsouly all Motorola and a few Samsung stragglers) since the One x+ I’m already waiting to give HTC my hard earned money.

  • S7, is it you? HTC once had a great design team and was praised for that, now that the ship is sinking they prefer start copying Apple and Samsung instead of doing great devices.

  • Badelhas

    I´m tempted to buy the HTC M10 along with the HTC VIVE, if there´s a proper discount.
