  1. I have this phone and i'm loving it.Yep looks and feels like an Iphone 6 which i also have owned in the past ,difference being that its running android .So really no complaints in my every day usage ,battery in fact is great, exceeded my expectations so thats always a good thing .Not sure about the HTC 10 ,sticking with this for now .Love Htc phones always have done despite the companies shortcomings of which there are a few .Each to their own i guess.Have a great day guys and keep up the good work ,love your channel.

  2. WOW they removed the boomsound speaker but kept the logo on the front??? there is already a logo on the back geez, htc. that was a really dumb move bc those speakers great.

  3. gosh, HTC are just can't grasp it can they? yes they changed the design, the back looks great but the front looks like some £40 chinese phone. the front is ugly and omfg what are those bezels??? and next – the interface is just so bland and boring. they need a complete overhaul with their android skin. i even preferred the old lock pull ring and spin-in homescreen. that was fun, colourful and attractive. lol bye HTC.

  4. Butthurts and Apple haters may cry all day if they want but still: you do not buy an iPhone because it looks like x phone, you buy any x phone because it looks like an iPhone. That is pretty much the case. Sorry HTC, you may be right in your claims, but your game is pretty much obvious.

  5. It's a shame because the HTC One series has been one of the best smartphones for the last several years. I don't know why they've gone largely unnoticed by most people. Poor marketing perhaps. I would gladly take the front facing speakers over the silly fingerprint reader. It's also funny that this video starts off saying that HTC is in need of change and at the end says it's a shame they're changing.
