Always a fan of HTC, even thought it does NOT get the recognition of Samsung or Motorola.
A good friend of mine got the HTC EVO and I was impressed back then. The EVO's kickstand was worth the price alone!! My first smartphone was the Atrix by Motorola, then the Pantech Discover which I REALLY liked: all the bells/whistles as the Galaxy 5 but $150.00 less!!
2 years ago I got the HTC M One 8, which I liked: the design, all metal body, etc
Was very disappointed finding out AT&T wouldn't carry the HTC 10, so I got an un-locked one with $100.00 off promotion. AT&T put my SIM chip in new phone, gave me 150.00 store credit. Found out my bill will be cut by 1/3 because I'm NOT on contract.
I like to native Google UI, makes it SO much easier with the bloatware, and plan to SLOWLY add previous apps. The new BoomSound speaker configuration takes getting used to , but I'm VERY happy with the phone's performance. . .
