Review: HTC 10
The 10 is HTC's finest phone. It may be more evolutionary than revolutionary, but it evolved in all the right directions.
As far as metal phones go, the 10 is among the best. The design, while familiar, is compelling and the manufacturing is quite good. The quad-HD display is brilliant, phone call quality is good, performance on AT&T's network was fine, and battery life is above average.
HTC took sound quality to the Nth degree with its BoomSound Hi-Fi setup and personalized headphone profiles. This phone truly sounds better than most others. The company made big steps forward with the camera, as well, and the 10 delivers mostly excellent images thanks to the improved camera app and sensor.

I appreciate HTC's attempts to clean up the user interface. The company did a good job reducing bloat and bulk, while retaining all the flexibility (themes, etc.) that makes Sense unique. The Snapdragon 820 provides blistering performance across the board.
If you're in the market for a high-end flagship, the HTC 10 is an excellent choice.
