  1. This phone looks great and is a welcome surprise from HTC. If I had not just purchased an unlocked LG G6 this would be top choice. Camera is #1 according to dxomark. Also, in taking away the headphone jack at least they give something in return with the noise cancelling headphones. It is also on of the best looking phones I have seen for those who care about that. HTC Sense is my favorite manufacturer skin.

  2. Shaping up to be a very nice device from HTC. I watched the livestream last night. Specs are good and price is more than fair. Unlocked is a big deal. I didn’t think I would like the Edge Sense gesture but it’s not bad and you can toggle it off. (I believe) I’ve already had silly comments vs Samsung “cheerleaders” on other videos who are already hating for no reason. Sighting bezels and headphone jacks as their point of contention. People with really no reason to dislike something are just ridiculous…
