    WWDC 2016

    I used iMessage a few times on my iPad. I really wasn't impressed in anyway. Now, I dont have an iPhone either. What would be the benefit of using it? I am looking for honest input on what it does that I am missing out on, I simply don't know what I don't know. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  2. Twas just a friendly poke at fun. But I personally, and many others dont really consider LG the flagship carrier, and hell, HTC really isnt anymore (3x though), but the Samsung phones definitely are 3xCA.
  3. You mean the Apple that notoriously is a generation behind flagship Android phones for features? Be lucky if it has 2xCA lol Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  4. Odd, I honestly have quite the opposite experience everywhere, except, as mentioned above, Meriden. Downtown is abysmal, I concede that. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk

    HTC 10 Rumor Thread (Was HTC One M10 Rumor Thread)

    I don't plan to debate it, but honestly, biggest factor was seeing the s7e screen size. I loved it right away. If I had thought the s7 size was sufficient, I would of waited. Between those things, Android forever with galaxy, and lack of any clear edge the 10 would have, I went back to a Samsung owner. I didn't do it lightly. I have 6 lines on my account, 4 were m8, 1 an m9. Now the real question is, will the 10 be the last htc power phone? My bet is yes. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk

    HTC 10 Rumor Thread (Was HTC One M10 Rumor Thread)

    Well, I have decided I am no longer an HTC owner. I had some great conversation with someone who has a HTC 10 and after gaining insight, I decided it was time to just go see this device in person and see if I wanted it when compared side by side with a S7E. So, I hit 3 Verizon stores AND Best Buy. Literally none of them had it in stock. While Best Buy didnt flat out say they wont have stock, the 3 Verizon stores all said they only order it, and demand has been near nil. They didnt even carry dummy units for the store. So, with the fact that Verizon doesnt care the device exists, Sprint and HTC not marketing it, and my need to get a phone this week, I headed to the Sprint store to get an S7E. I asked the girl if they had a dummy unit or anything of the 10, but no dice. They said they will be able to order it Thursday, but have zero idea when I might actually get it. So, with my loyalty credit, I decided to just do the 21 bucks a month and get the S7E and be able to upgrade annually. I fear HTC wont be making phones much longer after seeing how poorly they are marketing this one. Its a shame, I really did like their product. Good luck to anyone who does get one. Hope it does bode you well.

    Sprint and HTC are doing a horrible job on launching this device. This is supposed to be available in 5 days, yet you cant find any reference to it on the Sprint site. The only way you could find anything at all on the Sprint site is knowing this link: http://newsroom.sprint.com/news-releases/htc-10-launches-on-sprint-lte-plus-network-on-may-13.htm or searching 'htc 10' to get said link while on the sprint site. I hope the wait has been worth it. Ive been fighting myself daily to stop from ordering an S7 since my M8 is basically dead after an hour off charger now.

    Was awefully nice of HTC to send me a notification on my M8 for a promo, $100 bucks off the unlocked version OR the Verizon version. Cute. Still no pre-order. Nada. M9 Still full price. I actually hate it when cell companies (and they all do it), keep last generations model full price when they full well know the new one is coming inside the return period. As a consumer, I would feel pretty duped if I paid full price for a model that will be much less in a week.

    The lack of any updates on this devices availability is surprising. I cant wait much longer to replace my m8. Battery lasts 2 hours tops now. Sent from my 831C using Tapatalk

    So the better comparison is HDTV to 4K. It's not like going from standard Def to 1080. But you can still notice the difference. Sent from my 831C using Tapatalk

    If 3xca isn't truly needed, why are companies spending money and research to support it? Why is sprint spending money to support the capability? People said you didn't need a camera on a phone at one point. 3G was plenty fast as well at another point. Technology evolves, and a flagship device launching without 3xca isn't a flagship device, its already antiquated technology. Sent from my 831C using Tapatalk

    Yea that was about the best article I could find. I think I am still going to get it, but I wish the camera had blown us away. Everyone has been waiting for HTC to do just that. I dont use it all that often, but when I do, I want the best quality I can get without pulling out my Cannon Rebel.

    I am not finding any solid "go get this now" reviews. Seems everyone agrees, its just middle of the pack. The camera isnt impressing me the most. http://www.cnet.com/products/htc-10-review/ http://www.theverge.com/2016/4/14/11429858/htc-10-review http://gizmodo.com/htc-10-review-a-last-grasp-at-greatness-1770943344

    Anyone see anything about the IR blaster like previous models had? I would be surprised if they removed it, but I am not seeing it.

    I am curious where it will compare to the S7. I was a Evo, then S3, then M8 guy. So really, my next phone is going to come down to RF performance and CA abilities. If they are nearly identical, I will probably go HTC and stop my flip flop pattern.
