HTC 10 User Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm planning to upgrade from SIII to HTC 10. My primary reservation is that the sales appear to be weak (judging strictly from the amount of reviews on Sprint/Amazon/Verison/T-Mobile), I'm concerned that HTC and/or Sprint might not support the device for 2-3 years down the road. Is this something I should worry about? Thx!

In terms of updates I wouldn't worry. The biggest issue with the lack of sales seems to be sheer lack of production in general on HTC's part. This phone proved extremely hard to find at launch with no stores in the area even having received them and to this day I don't even know if any store has them.

Anyone having an issue with links in Gmail opening with the setup wizard browser instead of Chrome?

One thing I've noticed is the 10 uses a crap ton of battery when Bluetooth is on. Whether it's paired with my JBL pros or not, Bluetooth battery use is one of the top users up until of course I really get into using phone.

No. Try clearing cache and force stop the app and try again

I really don't see that much more battery use when I connect my earphones on bluetooth.

 

Snapchat kills my battery.

I'll have to get a screen shot next time I think of it just to compare. Just weird cause my m8 didn't even have Bluetooth anywhere near top of the list.

Is the actual battery draining faster or is bluetooth just on the top of the list of most used battery?

Over the past few days I've noticed increased battery life because of bluetooth, but it wasn't when i was streaming anything via bluetooth. I would always leave BT on because it would automatically connect to my car, but most of the day it would sit as idle. I normally never had issues with this, but then a few days ago I noticed that on my battery history screen, "Awake" had a solid green line going across the entire screen, and I spent at least an hour trying to figure out what was causing it. And turning off bluetooth for some reason fixed the issue. I think it was because over memorial day weekend, I went to visit my cousin in Ohio and she had me pair my phone to her car via bluetooth and after that point my phone kept trying to scan and connect to her car. I removed her car from my paired devices list, and now I'm going through the process of leaving bluetooth on all day to see if that's still affecting my wake locks.

I honestly feel it's draining faster when bt is on.

Yeah I have a major wake lock also. The phone awake bar is typically solid or nearly solid green. Along with wifi, even with it off and unchecked for scanning.

So my phone is not allowing data when I roam but I can get calls and text.when I go to the debug screen under EVDO menu it all says failed. They opened up a network ticket but I think it's the phone should I go get an exchange

I'm assuming you went into roaming settings and made sure data was checked?

I haven't had an issue with that, when you are within wifi coverage try a profile update in the system updates menu.

 

I have noticed if you are roaming in an area without evdo roaming it can be extremely difficult to get a stable data connection, probably because of how much data smart phones send and receive.

Sorry, I should have been more clear on what I was looking for. I was trying to see what signal level and band your phone was seeing... Its possible where ever your at has evdo roaming in a higher band or it doesn't allow evdo roaming at all. If your on a sprint signal on 1x in band 10 its very possible you can't recieve evdo in the PCS band where your at.

I think it was briefly mentioned earlier. Go into cellular network settings and make sure data roaming is on. Most devices are off by default. Recently went on a cruise and got a text from sprint saying roaming was included but couldn't get data to work. Had to switch data roaming to on... Just a suggestion as I don't have the HTC 10.

 

Edit: I'm referencing through android settings, not through the dialer.

I got the phone replaced and it's the same way so it must be a network problem

    • I did double check, but it was doing about 2GB a day at 2.4 GHz and about 3GB a day on 5GHz.  Now it's maybe couple hundred MB a day.  Perhaps it's a slow rollout. To be honest, I haven't tried VoLTE on MB yet.  Sounds like it's time to give it a whirl... BTW. This is all in San Francisco.
    • What we nned to see is a fully converted. market
    • All depends on the terrain/intended coverage area, sector alignment/tilt and antennas used. Wide beam antennas in a 4-sector 90° configuration can actually do a lot of damage to the SNR. Alternatively narrow beam antennas at a 3-sector 120° can leave big coverage holes between sectors. It's a pretty interesting balancing act.
    • I am not enjoying this t-mobile 5G in Astoria Queens or even LTE for that matter. Here is comparison between the 2 today at Astoria park. This area had even faster speeds before Sprint 5G was shut down. T-Mobile really needs to expand the N41 coverage outside of Manhattan asap. Some how Sprint really delayed it fast.

    • I'm still getting 50-90 Mbps (depending on how close I am to it). You might want to double check that it didn't fall to 2.4 GHz. Mine is Ethernet backhauled though.VoLTE has been live for many months on all the femtos. They don't need to cap anything for it to work. In my experience using LTE backhaul on a magic box with VoLTE, it didn't do well at congestion control (was cutting out because the donor was congested), so I'm skeptical that they tunnel VoLTE over a prioritized EUTRA session on relay. So if they aren't doing something as "basic" as this when they completely control the network, they almost certainly won't be doing anything on wifi or Ethernet backhaul to try to give VoLTE special treatment.
