Well done HTC, still rooting for ya
Well HTC makes the pixel so you can’t say “there are signs of the pixel”
I don't know who is like me out there, but I love the look of the back cover of this phone.
Does the mobile support navigation button change
and how can do it
Will this phone work in the US if it is unlocked. I have e T Mobile. I know there is no release for this in the USA so that is why I am asking. Also will the charger for the phone work in USA.
LOL @ bezels. Welcome to 2015, everyone!
HTC needs to wake the hell up and update their design system ASAP. Their android skin and hardware design speaks 2012.
A bit of a harsh critique, this has a really good design, great battery saving hardware, decent cameras, NO NOTCH, a headphone jack. A pretty good mid-ranger with the added bonus of it being an HTC, it's also only £269.10 on HTC Club which is free .
If Youtube tech's had supported HTC instead of this incessant criticizing they may have stood a better chance of survival.
Crap mobile charging issuse doesnot charge fast drain fast very fast mirriring with tv is Awful get too hot .only reason i bought it its does not get damage in any way possible also horrible cam dooooont buy
Sad HTC going down
stop this man.
mid range pixel phones.
android pie to all android mobile?
The problem with htc is customer support… No updates, they dont listen to their customers. We need the "one" design. Its unique and cool. Now it looks like they dont have their own identity. Which is sad.
It has no first charging
Build a HTC m8 for 2018
HTC U11 still going strong, albeit a cracked screen. Still works fine. But if this is all HTC are churning out these days… There are some VERY nice Android phones out there, however even when I pick up a Samsung Note 9 I'm still DISAPPOINTED (10 years on Android and mainly HTC) Hopefully Android P will shake my experience. If NOT, I'm going ?!!
Just bought U12 plus a month ago and I loved it. Camera is awesome.
Come on HTC!!!! #HTC
I think I'd still rather have my U11 eyes. No headphone jack sucks but everything else makes it worth it.
Here we go again… Copying design from iphone. But no-one will buy this phone anway! Good decision to bring 3.5 jack back, plus a really cool backside. Which is part of my problem. Bring us cool fronts instead! It's the front we look at a 100 times a day, that beautiful backside is always covered by a case! Stereo boomsound, cool front (speaker?) design, on-screen fingerprint sensor and more tools for camera/photo editing are things I would like to see from HTC.
Htc…will..always…be..The..Best.. Company…Ever..No..matter..what… everybody..needs..to..face..bad…Days..just…like..now..Htc…is..facing..!..Htc…will..come..out…With..a..Banger…Soon..!
Guys this is basically a pixel so get this instead of that. HTC works with Google so this is a good phone
The htc pixel x
Give me some sunshine
Give me some rain
Give me another chance
I wanna grow up once again ??
HTC, for last 4-5 years what the hell are you doing with all these decisions?
Been over 2 weeks my u11 sitting in the service centre. Huhuuu
I am shocked about the return of the headphone jack. Well done HTC
Yeah, pocofone is untouchable right now.
That looks like Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 with Glass back. At the first glance i thought it was Note 5 with Case?
I bet this phone has a better camera than one plus6?
Seriously htc, stop copying Apple so obviously. It looks exactly like an iPhone X on the back, if Apple went back to a horizontal camera system they would change too.
Am i the only one who has totally forgotten about HTC after the release of HTC One?
Cross Between iPhone X and Pixel 2
Love quality&reliability love HTC. Htc phones are the best and most reliable phones on the planet earth. Love my htc u11 and it is super reliable that hasn't even given me a single problem in over a year not even a frozen screen or button.
Stop making iPhone X clone pls
Me think HTC is on it last gasps of air these day
HTC, please make sense fun again.
1/5 sensor size is tiny. I've never seen a sensor as small as that.
