Oh HTC :(

Recommended Posts

After almost ten years of nothing but HTC cell phones, we had to go in another direction. Picked up a moto Z Force for the wife to replace her A9 and I got an essential phone to replace my HTC 10. Really wanted to stay with HTC but they have nothing to compel me to pay the amount of money that they want for their phones. It is almost as if they are no longer trying which is too bad.

My wife has the Moto Z2 Force.  She loves it.  WiFi was messed up and she had to replace it.  Returned it.  Second unit has been good.  Still waiting on the projector to arrive via FedEx ground.  Been travelling over the road from Minnesota, North Dakota and Montana.  Should be frozen solid by the time it gets to Washington State.

Yup. The wife likes her Moto so far. I just made sure she had a screen protector on day one!

Gotta say I'm happy with the Essential for the most part.  Did drop it last week and cracked the screen.  They were quick to replace it too. Htc just fell off after the M8. I did NOT like the 10.

The 10 was a pretty good phone although I missed my true dual speaker set up.

I switched away on my last upgrade. They just dont seem interested in making phones like I want. The s8+ is as close to my perfect phone as I think I've ever been.

I too moved away from HTC. I’ve had almost every model Sprint carried since the Audiovox 3100.. but Pixel 2 XL called my name. I had nothing but problems with my HTC10. I had a case open and still open since May of last year. No resolution. Once in a while they send out an email. “We are working hard to resolve your case” blah blah.. I moved away from Sprint too. New phone new carrier.

My wife and I have been using HTC phones since the EVO 4g. I had a short stint with the Nexus 5 between the HTC 7 and 8. When htc upgraded the 10 to Nougat we suddenly had horrible battery life. It got so bad that we ended up forking out the money for two pixel 2 phones.

The speakers on this phone are what should have been in the HTC 10.

    • Yes the site at the Mountlake exit off 520 broadcasts 5 L2500 carriers. Many sites in the area do nowadays. The B12 is T-Mobile/AT&T roaming. If it's displaying as Sprint, it's T-Mobile roaming and it's unlimited and unthrottled. 
    • Saw a 5 carrier B41 on the 520 by UW. Also, have noticed B12 showing up on my phone as Sprint. Sent from my LG-LS998 using Tapatalk
    • This is a follow-up to my posts of Sept 7 and Sept 20. Well, things haven't worked too well with the Sprint MiFi8000.  After a promising start, things degraded quickly and I started to experience the spontaneous reboot problem that Sprint MiFi 8000 and Verizon MiFi 8800L users have reported.  Originally I thought that it was related to the signal level -- but in the end I decided it was some thermal issue.  The units do get warm...  So I sent my 4 MiFi 8000 units back to Sprint. And I was never happy with the Peplink/Pepwave Max On-The-Go (OTG) unit.  I had several problems with it and the support folks weren't very supportive.       So I bought a second HTC 5G hub (now I have two).  Attached is a photo of the two units.  I got my old Cradlepoint COR-IBR1700 out of the closet and am presently using its load balancing capability.  The 1700 has 5 ethernet ports; 4 of which can be assigned as WAN or LAN and the 5th is set to WAN.  So I set those as 1 LAN and 4 WAN ports -- the LAN port ties into my house ethernet, and two of those WAN ports go to the ethernet ports on the back of each HTC 5G hub.  But the 1700 seems to be in Round-Robin mode even though I have it set to Device Usage mode (balanced usage) -- well, it clearly isn't doing that.  The one on the right is 75.51 GB while the one on the left is 116 MB. At this point I've been very happy with this setup and the internet has worked continually for the past 3 weeks since I brought this system up.  No spontaneous reboots (e.g. MiFi 8000), no blank web-interface screens (e.g. Peplink MAX OTG), and no internet dropouts.  Scott
