    Notification system: Single or multicolor LED? Does the LED go away after "xx" time? If phone is locked and screen dark does anything show up on the screen?

    Green only for apps, it seems. Orange/green charging.

    Haven't seen it "go away" after any time.

    Sense 7 was already pretty fast on the M9. The HTC 10 is as quick as any Android phone I've used though

    Yep, but you don't really need it with the fingerprint scanner

    How is battery life? HTC are quoted as saying 2 days with the obvious "Your mileage may vary". What are you seeing in real world use?
    Have you been able to compare the screen to the SGS7e in terms of brightness and visibility in bright sunlight?

    Have you used it with adoptable storage at all? When recording 1080p or 4K video onto a microSD card, has there been any noticeable lag?

    How's the speaker performance been in everyday situations? (listening to music around the house)

    Sorry, just thought of another question...

    In Themes, is it possible to "darken" Sense, particularly the Settings area, with a black or dark gray material theme versus the typical white we're seeing in all the hands-on videos? Samsung allows this with their version; wondering if HTC has the ability too?

    Verge review is out (surprisingly early) and they said camera app is very slow to launch. Is it really slow to capture a pic and is very noticeable? For eg comparing with 6P and S7, S7 is super fast to capture a pic but 6P is slow in my opinion. How does it compare in terms of taking a quick picture?

    Thanks

    GS7 wins in sunlight, mainly because of the overdrive mode that kicks in when it's really bright. That said, HTC's screen is perfectly fine.

    Haven't seen any lag so far. And I'm not using adoptable storage.

    Speaker's been good. We talk a bit about that on the podcast, but basically there's more potential for distortion based on the way you're holding it, because you have different frequencies blasting out in different directions now.

    Nothing like that preloaded, but no reason why you couldn't find a darker theme in HTC Themes.

    An update went out to US devices yesterday to make the camera launch faster. The Euro device I'm using already had that update, and it's pretty quick (comfortably under 1 second.) Faster than the 6P for sure. Probably a bit slower than Samsung.

    Oh, and on battery life. It's not exactly *bad*. But no way you're getting two days out of this thing. Not if you use it like a normal human. I'd say it's about Note 5 / GS6 edge+ level, perhaps a bit below that. Usable, but by no means outstanding.

    Good. I think Samsung nudges ahead in daylight visibility, but overall this is a good-looking display.

    Nope

    Launch. Captures are nice and fast.

    How hot does the phone get with extended 4K video recording? Or does it get unusually hot during heavy use?

    Also, on my M8, the paint wore off on the backside due to the case rubbing in certain areas. Is there a chance of this happening on the 10?

    Warms up like any phone. I haven't had it get worryingly warm though. I'll leave the 4K question to Dan Bader who's been doing more 4K video than me

    Always a chance of this happening with any anodized paint job. If you're worried, go silver.
