I got the rugged armor. Pretty happy with it.

u/failsafe0 · 2 pointsr/HTC10

I see; the large center section gives it rigidity for first placement. But yes, you're right I've already got the screen attached internally so I will have to remove it.

I ended up purchasing one from a local phone repair shop as Witrigs was 5-10 days shipping at best (... and for $25 in shipping charges). Buying locally only cost me $5, (score!). If I mess it up I'll go get another one.

I think I'll try this tomorrow.

EDIT: I did this. I ended up cutting a line up the side of the adhesive and I DIDN'T remove the center as there didn't appear to be a good way to do so. Mine came with an antennae (or wifi?) cutout for the center of the screen. I think all of the adhesive is actually important to stabilize the screen (or it was, in my case).

I still noticed after putting it all meticulously back together that the side stuck up a little bit. I purchased a new Spigen HTC 10 Case from amazon and the lip of the case extends past where the screen meets the frame. Otherwise I'd feel uncomfortable about it peeling and subsequently cracking the screen again. I also purchased a screen protector (tempered glass from Amazon, I believe) and put that on. My only complaint is that there's a couple mm around the edges that's unprotected from the screen and the case.

I've ordered a Spigen case, but phone not due to arrive till the 6th (UK) so don't know hoe it will affect the thickness. I always get a case to protect my phones. Never had a cracked screen or borken phone so far, touch wood.

If you have specific use questions, like you use the camera a lot or care about sound I can address those too, but I think this should cover most things.


Regarding your build question


The design is still really sharp, the 10 has a bezeled back and then is slightly curved. Not the smooth curved shape on the m8. I still like but it's definitely different. I'm using this case now and it basically feels the same as the m8 did.


I was originally attracted to the m8 because of the build quality, back when the flagship Samsung phones were plastic. The s7/s7 edge are now metal, similar to HTC's flagship line and they were the other phones I explored when updating. Because of this change the only major issues I have with the S7/S7 Edge is Samsung's OS overlay on top of Android (oh also their misplaced 'back' button). I used to use Nexus phones and HTC is probably the closest you can get to barebones Android on Verizon without flashing a rom, which right now you cant do on your own on a Verizon HTC 10. (Note I don't use the stock launcher so blinkfeed is not present).


Anyway..on to what you came for.


Major Changes


  • These include the USB-C charger. I have a ton of micro-usb cables which are now obsolete so you may have to snag a couple extra wires. But more importantly the phone and wall charger it comes with use Qualcomm QuickCharge 3.0 which takes your battery from empty to full in about 1 hour which is awesome. Battery, as you'd imagine is one of my biggest concerns and this definitely helps with that, but I'll go more into the battery in a minute.


  • Other build based issues include the relocation of the headphone jack from the bottom of the m8 to the top on the 10. When I place my phone in my pocket (front right) it is oriented with the top of the phone facing toward the ground so that I can pull it out with it being right-side up, that's a bit annoying now, but not the end of the world for me.


  • They also moved the power button to the right, just below the volume buttons, this took a little getting used to but I now don't find it uncomfortable and it allows me to take a screen shot with one finger.


  • The fingerprint scanner is a fast easy way to unlock your phone and I've found the scanner/home button to be comfortable.


  • Oh! I amost forgot, one of the most important things for me was expandable storage. The 10 supports up to a 2 TB microSD card which I don't think even exist currently. You can set the SD card such that the phone treats the space as part of the internal drive so now "move to SD" issues are nonexistent. I snagged this 128gb card for about $70 you can find cheaper ones if you're okay with a slower card. I wanted to go with the UHS-1 3 card which has speed enough for 4K video and I figured if it's working as part of the internal system I didn't want it to be slowed down by my choice of SD Card (not sure this is a thing).



    I was nervous with my decision just after I made the purchase. My biggest concern being battery life. The S7 and S7 Edge have been shown to have at least slightly better battery life (the edge even more so) than the HTC 10. It was maybe an hour longer on the S7 and a couple on the Edge, I can find the real numbers if you want.


    But ast forward a little, after using the phone for a couple of weeks I have less concern. Even with playing way too much Pokemon Go it hasn't been a huge issue. I can get the exact numbers if you want but I think While playing Pokemon Go with medium to high brightness and the screen always on it's slightly under 1%/minute. The phone battery really shines with it's incredibly low battery drain while the phone is unused for extended periods of time. It uses only 3-4% total while I'm sleeping.


    My general biggest concern regarding battery life is how I expect it to look a year or two from now. So if it's cutting it close today then a year from now it could be in real trouble. I'm mildly concerned with this still but there are QuickCharge 3.0 battery packs and I'm never too far from an outlet. Unfortunately there isn't data on battery life at the 1 year/2 year mark. FWIW I opted to not trade it in for the $35 restocking fee to switch to the S7 Edge.


    Other issues:

  • The 10 lacks a native music player which was a little annoying. The reason apparently being that they're trying to minimize extra apps and want you to use Play Music and other Google things. I just downloaded a simple player from the play store which even lets me edit song data which I couldn't before so that's cool.


  • The phone also does not come with headphones in the US. Apparently they're decent earbuds. I have other sets I use and over-ear headphones so I wasn't forced to purchase any separately. When you first plug in headphones you have the option of setting up a sound profile for them which was actually pretty nifty setting up the phones output to work with my specific headphones it came out sounding really good.


    If you have any questions I can go into other things. I'm assuming this is way more than you wanted already.



    TL;DR - Go for it. I've been enjoying it so far.

I got the Skinomi Tempered Glass. I usually go for their wet applicant screen protector but this time around (their quality is pretty good), I'm going to try their tempered glass.

As for the case, I went with Spigen Rugged Armor.

Spigen does have another TPU case without a bumper called the rugged armor. I don't have any experience with that case but it seems to have decent reviews on Amazon. However, if you're still looking for something more along the lines of an otterbox the unicorn beetle case might interest you.
