    What made you decide to switch, and then switch back?

    The first time I loved it but the screen rubbed me the wrong way with the polarization. I figured that wasn't enough to deter me from using it because I loved the fluidity and expandable memory. I quickly ran out of room on my iPhone 6s Plus and had to come up with another solution.

    Be careful. The carrier will only allow so many switches.

    Yeah, the polarization is kind of annoying but hardly a dealbreaker. I actually bought a pair of polarized sunglasses recently, but I think I'm still within the return window so maybe I'll swap them for a non-polarized pair.

    Glad you are liking the 10! I feel like this flagship has a ton of merit, and that it has a ton of improvements over the 9 (not just the camera, but also the OS). Good choice!

    Put a screen protector on the phone and you will be able to use the phone with polarized sunglasses. That's what I did and I forget about the polarization issue.

    I have seen so many people buy the 16 against my advice. This is usually followed by them complaining some time later about not being able to do anything because they have no space. It's always the phone or apple's fault and never their decision to be cheap when they bought the phone.

    The mere fact that they still offer 16 gb of internal storage just goes to show how inconsiderate Apple is of their customers. The 32gb should be baseline and cost the amount of the 16gb. Apple doesn't care. No flagship should come with 16gb internal. Mid-range devices only.

    Agreed. Even the "average consumer" can use up 16 GB. My Mom is by no means a huge tech user but just due to photos she fills her 16 GB iPhone up like it's nothing.

    That's a big part of why I just ditched my 2014 Moto X. I don't blame Motorola but it never occurred to me when I bought it that I would run out of space.

    Any screen protector works. No matter if its a film protector or a glass protector.

    Hence 16GB user have to be masters of storage management

    I've never used a screen protector myself. Do they make the screen any less clear, any less responsive to touch?

    Typically, if you use a tempered glass screen protector you won't notice anything different from you actually using the phone without a protector. Your finger will glide along the screen like normal. As far as film goes, it will depend on the manufacturer.

    I just got my new HTC 10 almost a week ago. I like everything about it except the battery life. It charges very quickly though. The headphone sounds are amazing. I listen as much as I can. The external speakers are not quite as good as the HTC M8 it replaces (my good old M8 was lost) but I like the external design of the phone, it has less bloat ware than previous phones I've owned, and the HTC 10 is the fastest phone I've owned yet.

    I've resisted Samsung and Apple this long and have gravitated toward HTC phone over the years. I'll stick with this phone until this upgrade cycle ends.

    Why gravitate away from the best !! My HTC 10 is in the mail as I type, arriving Friday, can't wait, but my HTC One M8 has been great over the years as was the HTC Desire HD before it. Best mobiles on the market

    Definitely not true. Screen protectors do nothing for the polarization issue. I a glass protector on mine and there is still a difference with polarized glasses.

    This is not true. At all. I've used both a PET film and glass and its still hard to see in sunlight. That's why I'm going back to an S7 along with other reasons.
