Do we have a good one for you today – the HTC 10 takes on the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Here we have two devices that couldn’t look more different – the HTC 10 is chiseled out of a piece of metal with chamfered edges while the Galaxy Note 7 uses a metal chassis and frame with Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and the back…the first smartphone to do so. This is the first year that the Note series take on the dual curved edges – not quite the curve of the S7 Edge, but pretty darn close. The design of the Note 7 really takes on a new, more sophisticated look with its design. The HTC 10’s new design spruces up an older design that was starting to get a bit stale and it looks great, although comparing both devices side-by-side, the Galaxy Note 7 will take the prize in the looks department, both win with a solid build. Despite their differences, they do have many things in common that we will go over in the next paragraph before we move on to the detailed specifications.

Following on from 2015’s launch of two smartphones under the Nexus brand, Google is reportedly poised to do the same again this year. When this will happen remains up-in-the-air, however, as many expected the firm to go with its usual device announcement at the Google I/O developer conference, which took place in late May this year with no sight or sound of new Nexus hardware. For 2016 Google is allegedly handing over development and production of BOTH smartphone handsets (and possibly a tablet, if some rumours are true) to Taiwanese Android manufacturer HTC.

For a while there, it looked like the HTC vs. Samsung smartphone rivalry had been snuffed out, after HTC’s disappointing 2015 flagship fell short of being a true threat to Samsung’s envelope-pushing Galaxy S6.

Read on for our hands-on comparison of the HTC 10 vs. Samsung Galaxy S7 – which also includes the larger Galaxy S7 edge.

After tons of leaks, and even a promotional video leaking out yesterday, HTC has finally unveiled their latest smartphone. This was a hugely important launch for HTC, because they haven’t been selling many smartphones lately, and their bank account have definitely been affected. In fact, in 2015, their sales dropped 35% compared to the year before. That’s a big drop, over a third of their sales. HTC has been struggling for about 5 years now. Some quarters they’ve been able to break even, but most quarters they have been in the red. To be quite honest here, no company can survive long when they are spending more money than they are making. BlackBerry has been able to because they were on top for so long, thus have plenty of cash in the bank.

HTC Malaysia executives may have been upbeat about the prospects for the HTC One E9+, but industry analysts say sales of the device are expected to be lacklustre at best, and would not contribute to the company’s global recovery.

HTC One 2 specs and features may not be as stellar as they are expected, according to the preliminary specs

The reliable tipster seemed to reaffirm that we should not be too excited on the imminent release of HTC M8 or HTC One 2. The handset may fall below the expectations of the fans.

The upcoming HTC handset may pack a 5-inch 1080p display, Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.0 UI, a 2.1MP front-facing camera, an UltraPixel camera on the back, 2 GB of RAM, and quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM-8974 processor.

Although these are fair features to begin with, we may not notice a big jump if we will compare it to the current HTC One. If rumors were true, the device may not turn heads when it battle against rivals from Samsung, LG and Apple.
