    The only thing keeping me from this phone is the external speaker volume being so low, does this update do anything to improve the loudness on the external speaker?
    Change to theatre mode helps.

    Curious, a friend with an unlocked 10 shows firmware version 1.53.xxx.x while my updated VZW 10 shows firmware version 1.19.xxx.xx. Any clue why mine didn't jump to 1.53 as well? Is this the same for anyone else?

    ~Ex
    Im just gonna guess the version numbers dont match due to carrier difference, or in this case Verizon being different from others. By the looks of it it includes most everything from the 1.53 update. I highly doubt we see next update jump to 1.53 from 1.19. Will likely be some number Verizon comes up with for their build of the HTC build. This is all just a guess, but I cant honestly see there being such huge numerical difference between unlocked and carrier version of the phones.

    My word. I listen to audiobooks while I shave etc in the morning and the volume on my prior phone (Droid Turbo) was such that I was shopping for a Bluetooth speaker. When I got the 10, I quit shopping - the 10 speakers are much much louder than my Turbo. Among the loudest phone speakers I've experienced.

    Well my camera doesn't seem to be improved at all. It might be a tiny bit faster to open, but I can't tell for sure. Focusing is still slow as hell and pics still come out blurry and grainy in low light. I was hoping it would take pics faster so I can get good shots of my 9 month old daughter who won't hold still. But they still come out blurry.

    My Nexus 6p camera was faster than this and pics came out much better. The 6p camera is a little slow so it's surprising.

    Maybe more frustrating is that after the update, which was supposed to have wifi connectivity fixes, I now keep getting a notification popping up saying I'm connected to my wifi. I never had that problem before, now I do. So far not liking the update.

    I do all the time. I have to because I keep smudging the camera lens on accident. I don't know how, this isn't usually a problem for me but on this phone it happens a lot.

    I did update. Battery is same (for me fantastic). WiFi solution is still a question mark for me as I am not even sure what was addressed. The peek screen notification seems to "self resolve" most times (show up and then disappear) but I am not sure the WiFi is performing any different. I still think that constant notification is the fact that Wifi has gone to sleep. Seems to happen quite often during screen lock. I have not configured any down time or DND time.

    I've tested two different 10s at different stores and my s6 was undoubtedly louder both times, unfortunately.

    And, if you scroll down quite a bit, you'll see the 10 is quite quiet: HTC 10 Benchmarks .

    But cool that it works for you.

    Yeah, I havent had any issues with it being too quiet. Seems plenty loud. Never had any points where I thought I needed more volume than this.

    Hey bearcats98... This is not a Android post, but I visited your school a few weeks ago with my daughter and LOVED it! The Final Three are Penn St, University of Delaware, and University of Cincinnati.... all good schools, but was very surprised by U Cinn. Great Campus and great city

    Well, I just read this Speakerphone (loudness, clarity) - Post #8 and both phones I tested on did have the current youtube version so maybe that's the issue because I was using youtube to play the music. Maybe I'll go try a 3rd time.

    Well this update really messed up my phone. I never had a single issue with the wifi, now it's constantly disconnecting and reconnecting all day long. My camera is no better or faster at all. Actually it now sometimes freezes up completely when opening. I have to close the app and reopen it to get the camera working.

    With these new issues, put together with the bad battery life and display that can't be seen with polarized glasses, and is too dim to see in daylight anyways, I can't keep it. Such a shame that HTC can craft such a premium metal body, but can't do anything else as well as it's competitors.

    Agreed.
    Every 10 I tried (in store) the speakers sounded poor. No matter which setting. Also distorted at max volume. Was disappointed to say the least as a good external sound experience is important to me. My M7 and 8 sounded loads better. I won't be getting the 10 and shall keep my Moto X pure. The speakers on the MXP are exceptional.

    Yeah, I have none of those issues as I dont consider the polarized glasses an issue for my personal use. Everything else is top notch on the phone and somehow better than my old M8 which I loved. You apparently got a lemon or are being ungodly hard on this phone and are expecting something more than any phone can deliver.

    I think other phones deliver a display I can see with polarized sunglasses, a camera app that doesn't freeze or otherwise take so long to focus that I miss almost every real moment I want to capture, battery life longer than 3.5 hrs sot, wifi that doesn't disconnect and reconnect all day long, etc.

    Then again you're coming from an M8 so I gather your expectations are set pretty low compared to mine.

    Yep, that highly hated and widely known bottom of the barrel M8. Not a single site liked or even recommended it. Just a bad phone all around. Thanks phone guru. Ill be sure to buy something YOU like more next time around.

    Lol I was talking about the fact you came from a phone that's more than 2 years old. I don't know what your problem is but you're taking things a little personally here. First you take issue with my problems with the phone, even insinuating that I don't really have any issues and I'm just being too hard on the poor phone. Then you get all defensive over your beloved M8 that I didn't actually say anything bad about.

    Let's not fanboy out here and start an argument because you love HTC so much you just can't fathom anybody having issues with their phones. Relax.

    I think the problem that a lot of people are having with your comments is that you are taking your personal experience and tending to generalise it to every 10 sold. You say "I think other phones deliver..." and the absolute fact of the matter is that other HTC 10's can and do deliver most all those things, because the one I hold in my hands has performed admirably camera-wise, has zero WiFi problems, and has had good battery life (I can't speak to the polarization issue because I don't happen to own polarized sunglasses). Don't generalize from the one to the all, that's absurdly weak logic. Yes, some others have experienced some of the same problems, but there's also evidence that these problems are far from universal, which is the perception you appear to be pushing; and literally every forum is filled with people complaining about this or that problem with their new phone. Take a look at the S7 forum for example: just in the first series of posts - battery drain problems, wifi disconnect problems, unresponsive screen problems, fingerprint scanner not working, audio cutting out; with multiple posters claiming the same problem. Despite this seemingly alarming list, few would argue that the S7 isn't one of the best phones ever made. The 10 is certainly the best phone I've ever owned, and I consider it to also be one of the best phones ever made.

    Sigh. You're taking things out of context. I haven't even *implied* that all 10s have all the same problems mine has. And I'm outright saying they don't. Does that help? Let's move on.

    Im completely lost where you think theres an argument. You will notice in my first post I said that its possibly a lemon first and foremost. It seems awful odd how very few others have issues to this extent with a phone.

    And the M8 comment comes off stupid the way you say it. The way you put it out there certainly sounds like an M8 is some bottom of the barrel phone or just not a good phone anymore, so the only reason I like the 10 is cause I have "low expectations coming from an M8"

    As I said in another forum, this software isn't optimized as yet and I am planning to see more updates. As I type this, Taiwan and T-Mobile in Germany are getting updates. They even added the facebook social plugin back as well.
