HTC 10 launching at T-Mobile on May 18, early buyers get free gifts

htc10tmo

UPDATE: I’ve gotten a couple more details on T-Mobile’s HTC 10 launch plans. T-Mo will offer the HTC 10 in Glacier Silver, and JUMP! On Demand pricing will be set at $0 down and $28.50 per month.

 

T-Mobile has been pretty quiet about the HTC 10 ever since HTC’s new Android flagship was announced one month ago, but today T-Mo is finally breaking its silence.

The HTC 10 will launch at T-Mobile on May 18 at a price of $0 down and 24 payments of $28.34, or a full retail price of $679.99. T-Mo is also offering a free HTC Rapid Charger and HTC Ice View Case to anyone that buys the HTC 10 between May 18 and May 24.

The HTC Ice View Case lets you do things like quickly take photos, read texts, adjust volume, and more without lifting the cover of the case. It also supports third-party notifications from the likes of Instagram, Tumblr, and Google+. Meanwhile, the HTC Rapid Charger does exactly what its name suggests, charging the HTC 10 faster than the standard charger. The combined value of these two accessories is $85.

As a refresher, the HTC 10 features a 5.2-inch 2560×1440 Super LCD 5 display and a 5-megapixel camera with OIS on its face, and around back lives a 12-megapixel UltraPixel camera with OIS, laser autofocus, and a dual LED flash. Inside the HTC 10’s metal body lives a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (expandable with a microSD card), and a 3000mAh battery. Also of note is the HTC 10’s new BoomSound configuration, which ditches the dual front-facing speakers found on past HTC flagships and instead uses a tweeter in its earpiece and a woofer at the bottom of the phone.

So now that we finally know when the HTC 10 will be hitting T-Mobile’s shelves, will you be picking one up?

    No.

  • mroliverkc

    Yep

  • PC_Tool

    Will be stopping in to check it out. Any word on whether this will be available on Jump On demand?

    • Hurlamania

      of course

    • Alex Wagner

      I imagine that it will be. Waiting to hear back from T-Mobile about JOD pricing.

      • PC_Tool

        Good to hear. Please let us know as soon as you hear back. :)

        • Alex Wagner

          JOD will be $0 upfront and $28.50 per month.

        • PC_Tool

          Might just end up keeping the V10…

          Well, I’ll take a a look at it in store (and bring my headphones). Hopefully it’ll blow me away. :)

    • Scoop003

      Ask Des has confirmed on Twitter that it’ll be eligible.

  • SoicalTechFeed

    Yes!!

  • Hurlamania

    love HTC but not getting it. Sadly your better off with a S7 feature wise for the same price. Second phone prices are outrageous they are going up not down. My first HTC was $350 second was $450 plus taxes and that was it no more high priced phones. They are not worth it. When top phones are under well under $500 I’ll start looking again. My $99 Lumia 640 is will worth the $700 savings of a high end phone. If people quit paying these prices phones will come down.

    • OZ

      Your decision. I stay away from the norm. iPhone and Samsung, everyone has one. This new HTC phone is amazing. Pictures I took yesterday after the update look very good.

      • Brad

        I’m wondering how long the improved camera updates will take to hit the Tmo version.

      • Hurlamania

        I prefer HTC but for the same price your better off with more features of the S7 was my point. Not that it’s my decision or I’m suggesting be a sheep. I had a S4 worst phone ever.

        • Scoop003

          What features besides ir blaster does the s7 offer over the HTC 10? And most tv and entertainment systems support Wi-Fi for remotes, so even ir isn’t needed as much.

        • Hurlamania

          Waterproof fingerprint reader to start, 4k

        • Scoop003

          The 10 has a fingerprint reader that happens to be the fastest on the market. And, if I’m gonna have to put up with all the negatives of the s7 just to get waterproof, I’ll pass. Haven’t needed waterproof on a phone yet. *knocks on wood*

        • Jacob Cárdenas

          I wouldn’t call it negatives, just added value to me over the s7. And yeah, I would use the waterproof feature once or twice in my life. I don’t swim with my phone… or wallet, or shoes, etc. No use for it while doing any activity related to a lot of water near me.

        • Jacob Cárdenas

          fingerprint start on both

        • Scoop003

          Again, the fingerprint reader on the HTC is the best in any smartphone. The HTC has the best screen resolution of any smartphone. The s7 and the 10 both have 2k screens, but the 10 has more pixels per inch. The 10 also records at 4k. So, again, all the s7 has over the 10 is being waterproof. So why would I want to buy the inferior product again?

    • Scoop003

      Having been using the HTC 10 for three days now, I can say, this is the fastest phone I’ve ever used, and I’m coming from a nexus 6. The s7 doesn’t even compare to this phone. Battery life is better. Touch input response is better. The camera is on par. I don’t think there’s anything the s7 does better. Other than lagging. If you want a laggy phone with a major overlay, then by all means, buy an s7. If you want an almost stock experience, but don’t want nexus, then get the HTC 10. I’m essentially getting all the benefits I got in my nexus, plus all the sense items I missed from my previous HTC phones. It’s the perfect phone.

      • mreveryphone

        That’s weird that you say the s7 is so laggy?? Mine hasn’t lagged a bit since the day I got it. Actually it’s only gotten better since the updates that have came out for it.

      • queenren

        You haven’t even used an S7 if you think the HTC 10 touch input response is better than the galaxy. And then you go and mention lag? You’re just repeating things that you hear to justify your decision. There is no need to do that. Just enjoy your HTC 10 while others enjoy their S7s. No need to bash other people’s phone choices.

  • George Salcedo

    Love HTC but they have to compete on price, $599 would be a better price point for me. I bought m7 for $580 and the m9 for $400, still though I would choose this over any galaxy phone.

    • OZ

      Use the $100 coupon and get it unlocked

      • Brad

        I think that offer has expired.

        • OZ

          I’ve seen this code: HTC1011

        • Brad

          It worked!

    • gmo8492

      A better price point in general would be around $450. They would move a ton of these a lot quicker.

  • HeatFan786

    Gotta still go with the unlocked version. Features all the Tmobile necessities without the bloat ware.

    • jonathan3579

      And cheaper if you purchase before the codes expire on May 18. Mine was $655 out the door after taxes and overnight shipping.

      • Jacob Cárdenas

        how is that different than t-mo $679.99 plus $85 woth in accessories?

        • jonathan3579

          The value of buying unlocked far outweighs buying a carrier model. Do I really need to explain that? I’m not even going to touch how a charger and case are not even remotely close worth $85.

        • Jacob Cárdenas

          I’m just worried about getting the most savings.

        • jonathan3579

          While I see your point, you could just as easily come out with an unlocked phone, case, and extra charger for the same price if not less. Like I said, my total was $655 after taxes and T-Mobile is selling for $679 before taxes. It all comes down to whether you want to have 24 months interest free or not, really.

        • Jacob Cárdenas

          The case to me is really a plus from T-Mobile since I can’t deal with generic cases anymore. They can be pricey too. I stacked T-Mobile cards from target at a 10% discount + T-Mobile $50 off student discount, combined with the 10% back from my American Express blue card drops it to less than $500. Or at least that’s the plan with the card.

  • OZ

    The unlocked version is no-brainer. I am already using it with T-Mobile.

    • yankeesusa

      Are you able to use the built in visual voicemail that is in the dialer on marshmallow unlocked phones like the nexus?

      • OZ

        I am not aware of the option being available in the unlocked version. At least, I am not seeing it.

        I have been a Google Voice user for years, and use Hangouts to listen to my messages instead (Google’s version of Visual Voicemail).

        • yankeesusa

          If you are able to you can check by opening your dialer, then go into settings, then calls and then voicemail, in there at the bottom their may be a switch to turn it on. It only works with tmobile as they have allowed this with 6.0 and nexus phones.

        • OZ

          I do not see the option on my phone.

        • yankeesusa

          Bummer. I was hoping that it was part of 6.0 and not just nexus. Oh well, thanks for checking.

  • mroliverkc

    Glad I cancelled my ice view case from HTC. I’m wondering if this “rapid charger” is USB 3.0?

    • Manú V

      it would have to be. otherwise what would be the point of giving away a charger incompatible with the phone the deal is for?

      • mroliverkc

        This is a US carrier we are speaking of, they do alot of stuff that doesn’t make sense

        • guest

          Really? Like what?

        • Brad

          Not including the hi-po earbuds, for one.

    • Brad

      The answer is yes.

  • Manú V

    I would love to buy the unlocked version of this phone, but you have to have good credit to go with their paypal financing option, and i’m still building my credit. That said, i’m glad on Tmo considering they generally release updates quicker than other carriers, they have less bloatware on their phones, flexible payment options, music freedom, BingeOn/data stash, etc.

  • Mike

    Not bad, I would consider getting it. They should of released it same time as LG G5 and Galaxy S7. Market might be a bit saturated for first half of year sales. I got the LG G5 and my fiance got the S7. They should of pushed it out earlier to compete with the others.

    • 5yh5

      ‘should have’

  • dontsh00tmesanta

    Bout time

    Time to jump my s7

    • Verizonthunder

      Just buy the unlocked version. It’s fully compatible with T-Mobile. No additional bloatware, rapid firmware updates, more internal storage and cheaper than T-mobiles brand.

      • Starlord7

        He has Jump, so I think he might be better off getting it through Tmobile

        • Verizonthunder

          I’m aware from his response now.

      • dontsh00tmesanta

        Nope us unlocked only has 32gb plus I have jump on demand so I’m getting rid of my s7

        • Verizonthunder

          You can fuze micro sd card with internal on android 6.0

        • dontsh00tmesanta

          I know

  • Rami Abdelmajid

    do we know if its only one color launching or multiple? I really want the gray/black color

    • Alex Wagner

      T-Mo only mentioned Glacier Silver when I asked about color options.

      • Rami Abdelmajid

        Thanks!

  • Thomas Roell

    Does anybody know whether the T-mobile variant has an unlocked boot loader ?

    • Philip

      Its always you go to HTC website to get the bootloader unlock. HTC itself allows you to do this and they want to to keep the hacker business.

    • Prode

      Phone comes with a locked bootloader but you can go to http://www.htcdev.com/ and request to have it unlocked.

  • Ricardo

    Anyone know if it comes with headphones?

  • Guest

    I’m confused why people go with HTC, LG and Samsung. If you truly love android why not get a nexus? They keep their software up to date and the hardware specs match the big boys. Plus the nexus phones are cheaper

    • guest

      Because.

    • Starcube

      Camera. The current Nexus 6P flagship has a good sensor but no optical image stabilization and it’s also 4:3, so if you want 16:9, you need to crop your pictures, losing resolution. The shutter speed also only goes down to 1/5 of a second, while other phones can do as long as 30 seconds for special night shots.

      Also, Nexus phones don’t have MicroSD card slots, some of us like to carry all of our music and a few movies with us.

      • Prode

        I would say this as well. Only thing I would add is batter life is most of the time better on non nexus phones as well.

    • cloud strife

      Maybe brand loyalty or maybe it looks nice (s6 & s7 really looks nice) or prefers htc speakers or prefers one with sd card slot or removable battery.

      I was a Nexus 4 user and being up to date is great but I’m missing features that I want on a phone too like the card slot & removable battery. My criteria now aside from those two is a CM support. My way of getting up to date even though it’s buggy every now & then.

    • patt

      What makes you think everyone wants a nexus? I am confused. It’s not a bad device but really what you makes your think that?

    • Guest

      People hate carrier bloatware and the nexus devices dont have it. Idk i was just making a point to save some money and not buy a named brand phone with the same specs as the big 3 (samsung,LG and HTC)

    • orbitalne

      Because nexus has no micro sd card slot :p

    • guest

      For God’s sake, don’t put LG and HTC in the same sentence with that other brand. Please.

    • tranceformer978

      Kris Kros will make you…..

      • thepanttherlady

        Kriss Kross ;)

    • AAAA

      Because I want features/options, not a bare-bone OS…I can get an iPhone for that. You can’t even get a battery percentage at one point, don’t even know if they do now. And on-screen button sucks.

  • Philip

    Dont understand why they want to price it the same as the S7. Only good is the bootloader is unlockable.

  • patt

    Not that I am defending verizon but they offer or offered 100$ off. Much better.

    • jonathan3579

      It’s still being offered. I went to a store to check the phone out before ultimately buying an unlocked model.

    • teckel

      But Verizon sucks giant donkey gonads. You’ll also pay MUCH more with Verizon.

      • patt

        I was with them for years so I know. But it’s still better deal. Verizon always has better deal on phones.

        • teckel

          Not true at all. They trick you into thinking that, but charge more per month so you end up paying a LOT more. I pay $25 per month per line for unlimited everything with T-Mobile, and their coverage is better than Verizon and AT&T.

        • patt

          and I pay about 42$ for unlimited everything on Select Choice. Not complaining. The 25$ Discount on share everything makes it little better and then with the 100$ off. It’s a decent deal.

        • teckel

          $17 per month X 4 phones X 24 months = $1632. Verizon is ripping you off! They *HIDE* the charges and you’re only thinking you’re getting a “deal” when you’re not.

        • patt

          I don’t have Verizon.

  • JayCA

    I wonder if I can get the $100 off for not using my Uh Oh! protection and am jumping to this phone with the original Jump! program. That would be great if that offer stands.

    • OZ

      I tried, could not. You need to have passed the 1 year mark.

      • JayCA

        I believe it’ll be a year for me before May 24th when I got the M9…?

        • OZ
        • JayMo86

          Original JUMP! does not require a one year wait. Two upgrades per year after the initial 6 month wait. JUMP! 2.0 has a one year wait…

        • JayCA

          The year wait was for the Uh Oh! $100 discount off the new HTC flagship. I am concerned that there will be complications claiming this for the HTC 10 when I Jump.

        • JayMo86

          Gotcha

  • disqus_hVj9NwwMcK

    Does it have EVS???

  • Philly Jim

    All I want to know is will the HTC 10 support Samsung Gear to be specific my Samsung gear 2Classic 4G and I’m in…

  • OZ

    FWIW this phone supports ANT+ sensors. Same as the HTC One M9.

  • maanshu

    I am done jumping onto every new gadget that comes out. I think hype is over. Screw apple, samsung, htc…etc.

    • Chilehead

      until the next new fancy feature arrives…

  • FreydNot

    It pisses me off that T-mobile is giving away IceView cases in one week and HTC is still not filling paid online orders for the same item. I ordered on April 13th. I got my phone but still no case. HTC support is useless. All they know is they have no stock and no eta on when they will be filling orders. Now it is obvious they gave away all the inventory to T-mobile!

    • jonathan3579

      The fine print says it can take up to 10 weeks for fulfillment. That is significantly longer than both the LG and Samsung promos.

      • Allen Alberto Enriquez

        Wow ! That’s the longer for sure! I wanted 5 months to get Google credit!

  • oryan_dunn

    So, does the T-Mobile version normally not come with the Quick Charge 3.0 charger?
    The unlocked one comes with the QC3.0 charger.

    • Brad

      Yes – it will have two Quick Charge 3.0 chargers.

  • Jacob Boxer

    Does anyone know if this phone comes with an FM radio? I tried looking around on XDA and even the HTC site, but there’s not much info. I have the S7, which had the radio unlocked this week, but I’m not a fan of the AMOLED screen. If the 10 has a radio, I’ll return the S7 and pick up the 10 next week.

    • riverhorse

      No… radio…

    • teckel

      It doesn’t have shortwave HAM radio either. Are you living in the 80’s?

      • Allen Alberto Enriquez

        I am not sure how old are you, however I do see your not getting the point FM is still well used everywhere.

        • teckel

          I’m 47, and radio on your phone? Why? With services like Pandora, Amazon Music, Google Music, etc. why would you use some old FM radio service on a high-tech device? I’ve never had a phone with FM radio, and even if I did, I would never use it.

          I don’t listen to the radio, ever. Not in my car (because my car automatically connects to my phone via Bluetooth which automatically starts Amazon Music and plays my own custom radio station [for free]).

          Seriously, it’s no longer the 80’s, get with the times.

        • carl

          We’re not in the 90s either, music is not everything, there are news, talk shows, live performances, indies…

        • riverhorse

          Exactly. But a brain is required for what you mention. Lol

        • teckel

          Exactly, and those are on the Internet, not the radio.

        • carl

          Of course, but FM has good local programings as well, depending where you live and you don’t need to be connected to a cell network.

          It’s not like we are all going to FM radio, we just want to have the option there.

        • BadBatz

          The 80s or not, I find FM radio very useful when traveling abroad, you know, all in one, phone + FM tuner, no need to carry two devices…

          Streaming on the T-Mob data connection abroad is rather impossible (yep, it does work sometimes in some places but not reliably) and nothing beats walking around Paris listening to Générations
          :-) You should try this travel thing: it might make you quit painting with such a wide brush…

        • teckel

          I just need my phone when traveling abroad, as I wouldn’t be listening to FM radio anyway (music in other countries can really suck). I was just in Santorini Greece last fall and I just streamed music from my phone to a sound system where we were staying and aux in to my car. Never listened to the radio once.

          I have Amazon Prime so I pre-downloaded hundreds of songs (for free) so I didn’t need an Internet connection to playback music. But when I did, I could stream from my custom music station.

          And I travel abroad all the time, about twice a year for the last 15 years. And what I’ve learned is that FM radio sucks in other countries. Also, I would never walk around with earbuds (either in the States or abroad). You’re missing the experience if you’re limiting one of your senses. I hate earbuds and headphones in general, but would NEVER use them while walking around in Paris (which I’ve done several times including last spring).

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Wow so your saying if no signals was around and the only option is FM to save your life such as hurricane Katrina, or California’s great fires or tsunami you would called it why do we need it! Well each to their own. I don’t have builtin fm I use other apps to give me the ability to use fm. If you were a victim of Katrina I would not think you be saying this right now. Their was no warning but the radio, however it was to late and aftermath part was even worse help was only reported via radio do to no signal.

    • OZ

      Tunein Radio could be a good replacement.

  • riverhorse

    I give HTC 10 A’s/B’s in all categories except 4 F’s:
    Screen size, storage capacity, battery, no fm radio.

    • teckel

      Screen size is an A, storage is an A (expandable), battery is an A (the 820 sips battery), and FM radio? What is this, 1980?

      • Allen Alberto Enriquez

        30% of earth population can’t afford what the more developed countries have so FM is widely still used 30% of my family still use it including 34% of my friends that are from 25 years and up.

        • guest

          Are you sure it’s 34%? How do you know, do you use a friend calculator app? You’re kidding, right? LOL

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          No joke. Go to other countries or watch carefully you will see it’s still used.

        • guest

          I’m talking about the precise “34%” number, how do you know it’s not 35%? But the FM radio, I think it was just disabled; international versions of the phone probably have it enabled.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Oh nope my bad I meant in general not just phones, cars, trackers, etc. And could be more I just under estimated the %.

        • guest

          Okay. Got it, now.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Thanks it was very difficult to bring my thoughts out. I am glad you catches on very fast.

        • guest

          And I was probably too fast and intense. Sorry. If a phone has the FM chip then they should come enabled. We may use it in emergencies or to save data.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Yes you got the other point I was going to make! Exactly what that emergency and non use of data! Thanks for that I am glad I am not the only one here! The only way I see T-Mobile making money is through service charges on phone and other stuff. Their is still room for both technologies and their uses its that no one has ever expolered it’s abilities! I can’t wait to see what happens if the ideal people get out in place! I hope people see potential!

        • jim hoch

          I have the S7 and radio was just enabled. with the headphones as the antenna it works well. Surprisingly useful in areas with low signal. I am trying the Nextradio app to find stations.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Nextradio is pretty cool thanks for info!

        • teckel

          Move.

      • riverhorse

        I’m not a midget or Metrosexual, I need big phone.
        Expandable storage has disadvantages.
        I need the 820 to sip multiple large, removable batteries.
        There are some local FM broadcasts I like to listen to, while sipping less battery and data that way.
        Yeah, bring back Reagan, ELO, Sade, and Disco. They can replace the Bushes, Clintons, Kardashians, rap, and Barbie-Chipmunk pop.

        • teckel

          Yeah, a 1TB storage card has disadvantages over 32GB that can’t be upgraded. I’d never use 32GB even if I tried.

        • carl

          Why do you had to go personal?

          I’m not a midget nor a metrosexual, but I prefer phones from 4.5 to 5 inches because I like to be able to use my phone with one hand and, actually, I don’t want to appear like a metrosexual or a woman, whom prefer to use their phones with two hands and have bags to carry them.

          Also, I don’t feel like I need to size compensate anything.

          Let’s just respect one another.

        • riverhorse

          It’s only satire, I don’t insult anyone save for celebrity pop tarts.
          You’ll notice how Metros want everything too, too small these days… guys clothing looks like hand me downs from their youngest sibling… or they mugged some middle schooler and took his clothes.
          (To be correct, that style is on the way out, actually)
          Anywho, I do work on the phone… size matters: the more over 6″ the better, can pocket slightly over 7″… Under 5.5″ useless. I’m talking work, not social or games.

          I’m also one handed: slightly under 6 feet / cannot grab a basketball with one hand, but a six incher works.
          If someone makes a decent larger model, then I’m willing to be a two handed “girlie man” to quote Ahnold.

  • mrpickem

    Had M7 and loved it..ever since the 8 & 9 were big flops. The 10 has some potential but really the screen is too small. 5.5 is minimum nowadays imo…otherwise the specs looks pretty solid. It better be well recieved for HTC sake, but I wont be getting one. S7 Edge for me.

    • teckel

      I don’t know, I think 5.5″ is getting too big. I upgraded to the LG G5 from the G4 for the smaller screen (5.3″). I think 5.2-5.3 is the sweetspot between large display and still bring pocketable.

      • mrpickem

        I used a Turbo 2 for awhile at 5.4″ and it was a cool device but with on screen home button that also makes the screen seem smaller. Apple and Samsung got that right imo…you always need a physical home button to save screen real estate among other things. But that being said, many people are quite happy with smaller displays and that’s fine..personal preference plays large factor is best fit for you. I even go with iPhone 6 on occasion when I need a small form factor…but personally I believe sweet spot is 5.5 to 5.8″.

        • teckel

          5.8″ is not a sweet spot for your pocket. If it doesn’t fit in your pocket comfortably, it’s too large.

        • mrpickem

          Actually haven’t ever owned a 5.8 but they say that’s what the Note 6 will be. I have no problem with the Note 5 in a UAG case slipping it in my back pocket…never an issue. Also screen to body ratio plays a big role as iPhone 6+ is ridiculous big for 5.5 while the G4 was quite compact.

        • riverhorse

          I was so hoping they’d do 6-6-1/4, everything else looks Fantabulous… and the pricing’s got to be +++

        • mrpickem

          I had a Mega at one time and that thing was way too big for me. I have a Nexus 7 tablet and that’s a fair size for a tablet. Maybe a phone can go 6″ or bigger but its hard to imagine that being comfortable to use. But that’s my opinion…there may actually be a market for 6-7″ phones, just doubt I could ever be in that segment.

        • teckel

          I’m glad phones are getting smaller displays in the last year. I see a trend that I hope will continue.

        • riverhorse

          A 7″ tablet, with the extra space around the screen, is too large for the pocket.
          But a 7″ phablet can squeeze in… ideally with physical buttons to maximize screen area.
          That’s kind of a pipe dream, esp @ decent specs.

        • riverhorse

          7″ Blu fits comfortably in mine, with still a smidgen to spare. If they or someone else improve on res & 1gb/16gb, I can ditch briefcase and tablet.

        • teckel

          But you can’t bend your knee because the phone is so big. Sorry, I don’t wear cargo shorts so big phones don’t fit well in regular sized pockets (or they limit movement).

        • riverhorse

          There’re always the low rider cargo shorts, scant inches from the shoe.rotfl
          All kidding aside, your point is very valid – – especially the more southern the latitude.
          Up north one gets used to something like a jeans jacket even with shorts, even in early & late summer… all it takes is a breeze combined with a couple clouds shielding the sun.
          Maybe too it’s tougher for those who don’t like a protective case, I can’t do without a rugged one – – it’s too slippery in pocket and hand otherwise.

        • thepanttherlady

          I won’t buy a phone under 5.5″ again.

        • riverhorse

          Make that 6 for me!

        • riverhorse

          Plus one on physical buttons.

    • Allen Alberto Enriquez

      What’s the few reasons if I may ask for u to choose S7 Edge?

      • mrpickem

        I’m a phone whore and have many. Always love Note series and still have a 5. I love the Edge display overall and edge notifications, the always on notifications & clock are nice, battery life is amazing, great camera and it’s the fastest device on the planet currently. I got a iPhone 6 too. Have 2 lines business Verizon & personal TMobile…all devices are Verizon except the Note. Note size, s-pen and screen size still make it the most productive, Edge in silver is sexiest phone ever and iPhone is small form factor when going out..I had a 6S and sold it but got great deal on 64gb 6.Had G4 & 6P..really liked the G4 but never cared much for 6P. I buy & sell many devices and service as a hobby so I go through many devices. Current rotation includes Edge, GN5 & iPhone6. Gonna pass on HTC 10 & G5 unless great deal shows. Looking forward to Note 6 and will have it on launch day. Lately I run mostly stock phone although I have rooted the Note 5. Mobile ads are really getting out of hand and that’s the main reason for root…my S7’s aren’t root-able so that’s a small drawback and I haven’t found any decent tempered glass screen protectors for Edge either.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Wow! Awesome! Seems I have a few things in common! The glass protection is a big factor too! Though the price is a bit high for me on S7Edge. I can see your a great buyer and you watch every detail to get the best for your money. The biggest thing I have against Samsung is that their smart watch is a bit to limited to what it can as in the OS vs Android.

  • Allen Alberto Enriquez

    Not enough internal memory 32gbs! I use 324 apps a year and use each at least once a year! I know their are people out their that do use same as me so offer me more internal memory and I am a buyer!

    • Rami Abdelmajid

      If you add an SD card to the phone it supports adoptive storage which will make the sd card be recognized as internal memory allowing you to have all those apps stored

      • Allen Alberto Enriquez

        I tried it thanks I am down to 12% internal left and have 89 gbs left out of 200gbs SD Card.

        • Scoop003

          What rami is saying, is that you can format the sd card to be internal storage. And it supports up to a 2tb micro sd. If you have more than 2tb of apps, you’re doing something wrong.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Few apps don’t allow me to send it to sd card I use an app that I purchase called app manager III it does everything SD.

        • pottyvick

          What they are saying … HTC 10 allows you to use the MicroSD Card as internal storage. The phone will see the SD card as part of the internal storage

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Wow that’s awesome I am glad you cleared that up I didn’t know HTC was doing that on the internal side. I learn a lot from people here like yourselves. I had dreams of one day apps running off SD Cards I am glad it’s finally I reality. I read many things about problems in some Android smartphone internal Sd card capabilities. Now I am glad to know it can be used. Thanks a lot!

        • Vahdyx

          I have the unlocked version of this phone. You cannot use a UHS-1 U1 card or a class 10. They’re too slow and will make the HTC laggy and stuttery.

          I highly recommend a UHS-1 U3 card or any UHS-II card. I took out my 32 GB UHS-1 Class U1 card because it made the phone slow.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Sweet thanks for that info I greatly appreciate it a lot! If I may ask how much did you pay for the card?

        • Vahdyx

          I bought the 32 GB UHS-II 1800x Lexar from Amazon for $60. Sucks, it’s expensive. I say stick with UHS-1 Class U3 for the best bang per buck.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Wow! The prices are still valuable I see! I’ll check it out!

        • Chilehead

          Although you are in the minority of users that require “excessive storage” I agree that 32GB is insufficient for a flagship phone in 2016. Welcome to the digital version of hoarding lol. We are all buyers BTW so…

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Yes I defiantly that!

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          I am going to see it out to work next week I will go to mobile and try it out. One of the things that was brought up was some apps won’t run efficiently and cause even more lag to RAM. Let alone my RAM have less than 20% left by me using sd card running apps it has to work so hard to call them out.

    • riverhorse

      I totally agree.
      1. I think phone runs better when apps on internal only.
      2. I also like the option to resize internal partitions… I like to convert my main apps into system apps.
      3. Phone also runs better when each of the internal partitions has plenty of empty GB of space.
      So for my next phone I want minimum 64, ideally 128.

      • Allen Alberto Enriquez

        Far out I agree some more I thought I was the only one looking beyond that of sd card plus internal memory. We era of intelligent design of supermotherboards I try to get fast transfer SD cards with good quality components to meet my every day high tech demand.

    • qpinto

      just buy a uhs 3 sd card. it works out great. i mean what more can you want for a 128gb samsung pro card which does 95 mb/s read and 90 mb/s write ? its on sale now for 100 bucks…

      • Allen Alberto Enriquez

        Thanks for this info I was needing this from first hand people to know what is m getting myself into. If I mean ask how well does it work with high demand graphic games and 2k recording?

  • Allen Alberto Enriquez

    Does anyone know if it has ir blaster? Because I use to have m9 and had tv shows listing in my area which is convenient for me since I cut the cord over a year now. I have over 100 channels in Fresno ca!

    • Scoop003

      No ir blaster

      • Allen Alberto Enriquez

        Oh man really that’s terrible I was hoping to see it I defiantly won’t be getting this! Seems I may have to wait for the next gen. Oh well. Worth a try.

        • disqus_hVj9NwwMcK

          Samsung got rid of theirs too

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Wow Samsung too! Gezz now days things would be control by Bluetooth or or iR blaster. Personally I like the iR Blaster to control basic things like tv, Receiver, digital converter box, some device have limits about the amount of Bluetooth headset can be connected.

        • T Redd

          I love the ir blaster on my note 4.. I probably wont upgrade anytime soon since everyone is getting rid of them.

        • riverhorse

          Except for LG.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          I would have not either it’s more like a down grade on software/hardward features. I couldn’t imagine with ir blaster as might as well go back from the time before Apple first creation of smartphone that’s valuable I see it.

        • Cruzer
        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Awesome that fixs it for now great idea!

        • carl

          Interesting idea, but it has mixed reviews, check Amazon.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Shall do!

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Samsung really that’s too bad

    • riverhorse

      I agree on this too, hardly anyone brings this up though.
      LG is the IR king, but surprisingly skipped it on the Stylo… Grrr…

      • Allen Alberto Enriquez

        No kidding! Wow that’s a shame! Ir king they are the software they added to V10 is a mind blower!

  • jim hoch

    Not much of a deal. better to wait for a no tax seller or the inevitable drop.

  • mark

    I guess I know where I’m going to be on the 18th… getting one of these bad boys for me and my wife. She is so tired of the buggy slow Samsung and has always complained about how my HTC phones are always so much better. Cause they are.. lol. Don’t let the media force you into a Samsung.. it will never be on HTC’s level.

    • Tony bologna

      You guys must but the worst Samsung phones. I’ve had the s7edge since launch day and I’ve had no lag issues ever, other than a few minutes after a reboot. My girl had the m10 for a few days and it was awful compared. She ended up switching to the regular s7. HTC used to be really nice 5 years ago. Now, they’re dropped the ball entirely. Sale prove it too.

  • TheRealKingSen

    If the price was lower I would buy it. Nice phone but not for that price

  • OmeerRahman

    Finally a launch date. I’ve set aside money for this like since it was announced. Still gotta wait till Wednesday, SMH!

  • Plow Rox

    “T-Mo is also offering a free HTC Rapid Charger” Wait the phone doesnt come with one?

    • qpinto

      there will be an extra one. it comes with one in the box

    • Franky bunlap

      The m9 didn’t come with a fast charger. Just. Regular one. I’d assume the m10 is the same.

  • Joshua Pingley

    It’s a great phone, don’t get me wrong, but it’s just priced far too high. The S7 edge is overpriced as well, but Samsung has a much better reputation and their device is waterproof, has an OLED display, superior cameras, as well as wireless charging. Still, I hope this device does well for HTC; they really deserve a win.

    • 3165dwayne

      and htc completely destroys them in sound quality all around. better DAC and better speakers. no damned touchwiz is also a plus.

      • Joshua Pingley

        Better audio doesn’t trump waterproof, arguably better design, wireless charging, better battery life, and superior cameras though.

        • 3165dwayne

          The camera isn’t really superior but the software is better on the S7. audio matters a lot to me. I spend over $200 on headphones and try to find the best quality flac and wav files. Why would I want to hear the S7 turn it all to mush?

        • Chilehead

          Samsung’s Touchwiz lag keeps me away from their phones year after year. I got rid of the S6 Edge as quickly as my JUMP1 plan would allow. Waterproof vs audio is really user preference. I choose audio quality since I’ve never had an issue with getting a phone wet (and I have and have had many flagship phones).

        • Joshua Pingley

          First thing I do whenever I purchase any non-Nexus Android phone is put Google Now Launcher on it, and all my problems go away aha. I find the headphone audio of the S7 to be quite strong actually, but the volume warning EVERY SINGLE TIME drives me a bit nuts. And the speaker is garbage as we all know. Samsung could benefit from HTC’s audio set up, and HTC could benefit from Samsung’s camera processing, OLED panel, and wireless charging.

        • Chilehead

          Wouldn’t it be great if your average consumer didn’t have to get young Billy to install a third party launcher to make their phone lag free? I just want my phone to work smoothly out of the box.

        • Franky bunlap

          After using the s7edge since launch day, you’re totally wrong. I just about never have any lag. Only when rebooting the phone for the first few minutes. Any lag would be 3rd party app related any other time. But leave it to a hipster to spread false info.
          Furthermore, HTC may have better sound, but them ditching the front facing speakers killed it. I’ve heard it in the store with a flac file. It doesn’t sound as good as the m9 did. Samsung is more than good enough if now. Their new music app is much, much better with audio now.

        • Chilehead

          I’m glad to hear your S7 doesn’t lag. I never used one.

        • 3165dwayne

          Lol, I also don’t swim. The water resistance rating on the HTC 10 is sufficient for me. Wireless charging is cool but I prefer to have USB type c. I’m the type of user that uses his phone in bed and when I’m done I put it down. I like to have my phone plugged in while I use it. I’d rather to finally not have to fuss about which way to plug the damn thing in. I had phones with wireless charging in the past and never used it nor cared for it.

        • Joshua Pingley

          It’s such a good time to be a smartphone lover because none of them are bad. I personally find the S7 edge one-ups the HTC 10 a bit, but the HTC 10 is incredibly solid as well. I wish they didn’t hype up the OIS front camera so much though because from the video samples I’ve seen it’s shaky AF. And I agree on the USB-C vs wireless charging point to a degree. USB-C AND wireless would be a dream.

        • No wireless charging is the killer for me. I have gotten to prefer a slightly larger screen as well, but no wireless makes it a non-starter.

  • Perk

    I see on the HTC.com website that the grey/black htc 10 is available for t-mobile. When will T-mobile offer that one?
