    I am thinking about selling my HTC 10 and getting an S7. I like the HTC 10, but the killers for me are: the inability to see the screen in the sun (especially with polarized sunglasses), the lack of Samsung Pay, size (not big, but it is to me) and the camera (good, but not Samsung good IMO). What do you all think?

    Plenty of threads here with the very same question (mostly on the HTC 10 forum), so maybe a few of those might help. There's also this:
    HTC 10 vs. Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: The first big Android rivalry of 2016 | Android Central

    Personally I would pick the S7.

    Display: S7 >= on all categories
    Battery: S7 >= on all categories, HTC is wildly inferior on charging technology
    Build & Design: HTC nod on build materials, approximately equal on other categories
    Audio: HTC >= on all categories
    Performance: Tie
    Options: Tie
    Software: Samsung >= on all categories
    Security: Tie
    Camera: Samsung >= on all categories

    So 9 categories, S7 wins 4, HTC wins 1, Tie on 4.

    I agree with you on everything except this:

    Software: Samsung >= on all categories

    I still can't stand Touchwiz bloatware. They still have duplicate apps, and still has their fugly design on the menus, notification shade, etc.

    HTC 10 has almost stock Android.,

    I don't disagree on software design, but they category includes speed of updates and the expected lifetime of flagships with each OEM. HTC has been getting better at updates but their history isn't very good so this is something I may have put too much emphasis on having a solid track record, rather than only the most recent trends.

    I don't think it's gonna be a problem anymore because HTC has worked very closely with Google this time around and has specifically said keeping updated is a priority.

    Also, it's a lot easier to be updated when your OS is already almost stock Android.

    I definitely hope you're right.
