yes well they are special compared to previous inbox HTC headphones and it looks/feels better too, compared to Apple's i would say its OK but doesnt beat it, there is an advantage to it though, it cancels noise greatly (being in ear) and works better when you create your personal profile for it

i thought the phone comes with Hi-Res headphones. are they not?

Noob test.. He compares the phones on 100% that means for example ~ 380nits (g5 ,m10 ) vs 550 (z5 ,p9 ) and so on..

Proper test is all phones on ~250nits .. Fck noobs

Yeah cause you are gonna rock a dim screen with 100% battery? I get your point. It's not a scientific test by that means. But it still gives us a good insight in how these devices perform. Nowadays you gotta take every test with a grain a salt, just take their info, combine it with others. And make your own.

I would love to see a test like you described. Maybe you could do it [emoji56]

Anandtech does proper testing.. They even overhauled their browsing battery life test for this year with a scrolling component so they're not just reloading the same pages over and over and over again.

Joshua's full review will arrive eventually. His exams are over now and he's working the S7 part 2, after that comes HTC 10 review.

Thank you both! This wait is killing me, the plan was to wait untill T-Mobile had it so i could (maybe) get a sweet deal on it. But as the weekend is getting closer, the chance of me ordering it is getting closer too. These tests and reviews are really keeping me alive, it feels like Sinterklaas(aka O.G. Christmas) again :D

In daytime the HTC 10 seems to be a better camera than the GS7, but edged out in low light it seems.
HTC is incredibly aggressive with ISO, max on auto is 4000.
I'm pretty sure that the 4000 ISO max + 1/8s max shutter is what lead to most reviewers concluding GS7 > H10
At identical integration time the H10 seems to actually be fairly similar to GS7. @duliang you can just enable pro mode and cap shutter speed to 1/4s as needed, another option.

https://twitter.com/JoshuaHo96/with_replies

So Josh suggests capping shutter speed ("as needed") and @hamdir suggests capping ISO.
HTC really ought to improve the ramping up of ISO and maybe reduce the max on auto mode.

I just made an order on the Grey HTC10, the code worked fine for me.

Thanks both, I realise now why I could not get it to work.

I have previously had an account in 2012 with Very, which was closed by me in 2013, they reopened my account and therefore I am not classed as a new customer.

I do have one on order direct from HTC which I used the discount code so I am still getting on for £516, I just wanted a better price if I could.

I get to play with my new toy this weekend! Just received my shipping confirmation, arriving on Thursday.

My order page just changed to Pending Fulfillment. :highfive:

---------- Post added at 04:02 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:01 PM ----------

Talking about 1/4 and 1/8 shutterspeed, how awesome is the OIS? Trying 1/4 without a Tripod/Mount Sounds like insanity in my ears.

Indeed. That's why when my coworker said I could have his selfie stick, I said sure... because it has a tripod mount with a universal device holder (a spring clip basically). So now I can actually make use of long exposures and night shots.

    Hello
    Long time no see here
    After a year with the OP 7 pro I wonder which phone will replace it. S21 Ultra? Mi 11? Mi 11 Pro ?
    Which one will have a better root and roms choice?
    Looks like this time exynos is good enough on s21u. Dunno what's Hamdir thoughts about it
    I was very impressed with the S21 Ultra. First time a Samsung phone interested me in a long time.

    By the end of this year, Samsung will implement AMD GPU into their Exynos line up. So that will be another big boost if done properly

    I'm still rocking my u12+. So will wait to see what Samsung do (if they release a Note 21 Ultra, as it's unlikely). If not, then Fold 3 and the Pixel 6 is what I'll be looking forward to.

    my 10 rave fitbag arrives on Tuesday but my trusty old M8 one works as well

    I need to express my thanks for @imOJ for all the trouble he went through to help me get this, this guy rocks and i love Dubai!

    phenomenal build quality, this must be the first time i've unboxed an HTC flagships with zero QC quirks, despite all the beauty shots and my work on the 3D render it still hit me, the buttons are simply insane like an expensive piece of machinery, the chamfer makes the phone feels so slim and the weight is the same for M8 / M9 carriers, the grey and the black 2.5D glass combo is simple drool inducing, those getting the silver white are making a huge mistake, there are no plastics to be seen and even the plastic patch on top is awesome

    the box looks the same as the M9 from the outside but the inside is fancier, soft coated and much better organized, all the included stuff QC 3.0 charger, earbuds and Type-C cable feels much fancier than previous devices, by the time you finish unboxing one conclusion is clear, this is new chapter for HTC

    the camera out of box is nothing like we've seen lately so i've skipped testing it and installing 1.30 before i touch it

    the screen is on the surface and anyone thinking otherwise is lying to himself, the screen looks pinkish out of box for few reasons: auto brightness and the vivid mode, i have spent half an hour testing various settings, angles and doing comparisons which i will show you tomorrow but for now: I have strong evidence that this a matter of glue, actually its right there in @jmitr photos ;)

    once you raise the brightness to full and change your settings the screen will impress, i agree with David Ruddock, Vivid mode sucks! it's almost disgusting so i have switched to sRGB mode which is gorgeous and the temp slider to full cold, never seen such good whites, even with sRGB it's still greatly saturated vs M9, in short with sRGB this is extremely close to the iPhone, the coolest bit? using it at full brightness with auto disabled doesnt warm the screen at all (suggesting that the screen brightness is capped with the real full reserved for the sun)

    ghosting...sadly its true, its a regression from the M9 but hey i've spent the year fighting with everyone here who refused to believe that the M9 screen is much better versus the M8 in terms of smoothness feel ie: refresh rate, so if you worship the M8 screen you will have no problem as the 10 is better than the M8 just not as good as the M9 in terms of ghosting

    speakers: OMG, just ignore all the non sense you've read, its LOUD, louder than the M9 and the sound is much crisper, its just not dimensional like the M9 but its clearer and louder from every angle, finally music mode makes the difference, it sounds like stereo, the default theatre mode is inferior to the M9, we have yet another incident of reviewers being too lazy to switch a stupid setting

    more tomorrow

    I have decided to show you this, my mockup of the M10, because i don't want to give Evan the pleasure of spoiling the M10 for us, like he did with that God awful washed out photo he has released, here is my render of the M10 which i had made earlier but now corrected to measurements after Evan's front reveal, this is made from all the insider information i have of the M10

    note: this mockup does not show the hidden thing on the front ;)

    you can really understand the codename now, this is the cleanest most symmetrical phone HTC ever made, it contains the essence of HTC but fulfils everything the press has been asking for
    - no logo bar
    - improved screen to body ratio hence its expect to have the same size as M9 with bigger screen, 5.2"
    - AOSP like UX
    - heavy loaded camera hardware

    update v2: refined render with corrected rear camera size, fingerprint shape and clearer bezel
    update v3: fractionally wider in order to perfectly fit the M9+ 5.2" screen proportions and every sensor on the front including the speaker was readjusted to match the evleak photo, brighter colors, fixed broken front USB center on v2
    update v4: adjusted fingerprint shape based on evidence of alternate prototype, so it could be either v3 or v4 as two prototypes exist
    update v5: bigger rear camera and flash/IR, antenna's location corrected based on latest leak, FP scanner, speaker, front camera and proximity corrected using the white photo
    update v5a with Sense 8 mock-up: trying to show case how the M10 looks with black wallpaper thanks to Amoled and Sense 8 colors, Desire 825 capacitive buttons plus color tweaks here and there for better looks
    update v6a: added the back chamfer matching the silver leak, hence rear camera combo gets smaller just a bit and the side tapers approach M9
    update v7a: back chamfer is now more solid
    update v8: added real Sense 8 icons

    update 4/3/2016: the official M10 render was leaked, comparison with my mock-ups over here

    Well guys, it's a sad day. For the first time since I started using Android, I won't be buying the HTC flagship. It's sad because I really love HTC phones, and I got my start as a developer on HTC phones. But I think it's time to move on. My sincere thanks to all the HTC community here for supporting my kernels and apps over the years. I hope people aren't let down by me not getting the U12. I'll continue to support my kernels for the 10 and U11.

    Why am I not getting the U12? The honest answer is not enough users. I spend several thousand dollars per year on phones, supported by the revenues from my apps. It's pretty much a guarantee that I will lose money on the U12. I'm already really busy with more popular devices, so I can't justify spending another $1100 on a device that will have few users and require a lot of effort to maintain. HTC devices are a huge hassle to support compared to Pixel and OnePlus and even Moto. HTC still sends their kernel sources as a blob with no commit history, and they are routinely several months late in releasing them. Plus there are endless variants and weird HTC-specific quirks to deal with.

    Back in the day, HTC was definitely the best. Phones like the One S and m7 really stood above the competition. Looking back, it was the m9 that killed HTC. It was really a dud. The brilliance of the HTC 10 couldn't make up for it and although the U11 was a fine phone, I just never enjoyed it as much as my other current phones, which have really progressed in the last couple years.
