    I have the SGS7e and I have pre-ordered the HTC 10. Once I have the HTC 10 and have had it a couple of weeks to play with I will make the decisions as to which phone to keep.

    I have the Galaxy s7 and will probably wait a few weeks once everyone has them and see what the vibe is like, and if good, I'll sell the s7 and grab one.

    I have no complaints with my edge so I won't do any swapping, but if real life use turns out as well as early reviews I'll see what HTC offers next year before upgrading again.

    You people sure must buy a lot of stuff to make that the reason for keeping a particular phone.

    Not sure which particular reason you were referring to but when I get a phone, I usually keep it for 2 years (because I hate transferring and getting used to a new phone). If I'm spending several hours every day browsing and such, I'm going to make sure it's the best possible phone I can get. If I ended up with one I wasn't thrilled with, no way am I suffering with it for 2 years. It would have to go asap.

    Out of interest, what about the S7 Edge is making you consider switching to the HTC 10?

    My reasons. Coming from ios. I want
    User experience. No doubt s7 is great phone but there's some features I don't use.

    - Samsung App/ features (bloatware). Way too many. I don't have time to check every apps lol.

    - I'm having hard time dealing with screen protector peeling off while using a case, S7Edge. Who one like to rub the edge for adhesive to stick or peel.

    - not big fan of edge panel. Hard time not letting my hand to touch the side while using one hand. ( that's what she said)

    I can go on....again S7E is great device. High end Spec, great display/camera. It's just not for me

    I think one of the plus points is having not to worry about the built of the phone as it ages. I currently own the S6 edge. And I've used it for a long time. It looks perfect. Except the home button which looks messed up.

    The note 5 and the S6 edge plus had the same problem. Apparently this has been an issue for the newer models again.

    Apart from the home buttons. The S6 and S7 look beautiful but soooooo delicate that it's almost necessary to put a case on it to get a good experience out of it. Of course not everybody does.

    I have used the HTC one M8. And I can say, that owning a device that's built like a tank makes me feel not worried about it getting scratched up or breaking.

    I was fine with the built quality of Samsung and it's compromises till the 10 came along. Samsung phones are beautiful. But having sturdy construction with beauty is a plus.

    For me that's the major thing I'm looking forward to when thinking about buying the HTC. It's going to age better than Samsung. I think.

    The m8 is definitely not built like a tank. I dropped it once from waist height and there was a big dent in the metal body. The aluminum used isn't the toughest out there. Jerry rig snaps the m9 into half. Hopefully the 10 is more durable.

    Nah. Now, don't get me wrong I think that the HTC 10 is a marvellous phone and had HTC released it at the same time as Samsung released the Galaxy S7, I probably would have gone for it instead. However, I'm very happy currently with my S7 and the HTC 10 is not offering enough notable improvements over the S7 to justify me trading in my S7 and spending the ~£300 necessary to switch to an unlocked HTC 10.

    There'd also be some compromises I'd need to make (Snapdragon 820 instead of Exynos 8890, lack of infinite contrast that AMOLED display provides, lack of Dual Pixel autofocus tech, lack of 1080p/60fps & 720p/240fps video options, lack of a hardware quick launch for the camera, lack of IP68 rating, lack of wireless charging, eMMC 5.1 vs UFS 2.0 storage). While the HTC 10 has an equal number of pros compared to the S7, neither can claim to be objectively better in all categories that matter to me.

    Again, it's not worth the money for me. I'd rather wait and see what the 2016 Nexus phones will offer and possibly upgrade then.

    I was a big Blackberry fan/user for many yrs, right up to the Z30. The Priv was terribly tempting for me but I had already migrated to HTC. I have opted for the 10 but something about the Priv still calls out to me, lol. I did like how gesture-based the M9 was/is and now it looks as if I will need to get used to a home button.

    Priv rocks just needs better heat reduction and more power for gaming and cpu.

    That my only complaint.

    Looks beautiful and unique classy.

    I'll get my htc 10 in black.

    Ordered the 10, probably Switching from S7e. I'll use it for a week to test. I have big hands and I am continuously touching the sides of the phone which makes it difficult to type or do anything really. Also, the OS battery drain is killing me. Hope its better on the 10. Also, the lack of a good glass screen protector for edge is a deal breaker. Lastly, when my kids watch Netflix in a nosy restaurant they can't hear from the speaker on the bottom. I would imagine the 10 solves that issue as well.

    Could you elaborate on the "OS battery drain"?

    I had the same problem with the sides of the s7e, great phone but I couldn't use it. I even tried several cases to space my hand out and the phone is just too sensitive. So HTC here I come!
