      if customer support was like the old days, forget it. updates and support very important. how has it been if the last few years???

      I bought my unlocked HTC 10 outright from HTC’s Canadian site about a year ago. It arrived with Android 6, and in the year since, it has been upgraded to 7, and then 2 major updates to that. That is better than most phones through a carrier, probably because it doesn’t require extra vetting from a carrier to ensure the update works with their bloatware

    So carries completely abandoned htc with this one…. Another htc that won’t sell much, at least in Canada.

    • Techguru86

      yeah, HTC has been pretty much dropped since the M9

  • Phil – it – up

    Beautiful phone with a lot of positives but not having wireless charging, Bluetooth 5 or OLED is turning me off.

    • John Lofwire

      Bluetooth 5 is useless for me.
      Wireless charging is crap and slow.

      Oled is a good point but not a deal breaker for me.

      What break the deal is the fact there is no way to get this on contract with all carrier.

      thats very bad its like they dont want to sell it lol.

      The carriers here don’t want to sell htc products, not HTC…
      They sell LG’s phones , which are not superior to the HTC’s,,,,

    • John Lofwire

      I love my LG but HTC make overall better product yes.

      Sadly they dont put at much marketing out and branding is lower and canadian carrier are all about branding.

  • Surveillance

    Nope

  • Nundo

    Am I missing something here, or is there no availability through carriers? It’s either they decided to drop HTC entirely or HTC decided to sell it on their own. Shame, seems like a good phone too :-/

    • John Lofwire

      Yep agreed.

      Wont pay 900$ for a phone i want to be able to take it on contract..

    • Turbojugend

      But you are paying $900 for the phone, just not all up front.

    • John Lofwire

      Yep and that easier on the wallet. Just like any others financing.

    • Turbojugend

      But it’s way worse on your wallet, you always pay more for the device, and more for your plan.

    • John Lofwire

      Depend on carrier and region. Business account on 24 months have 40$ byod plan with 3 th shareable in Quebec.l or 60$ same plan with 500 to 650$ as phone financing (balance.) So you pay 480$ more per 2 years but receive more in financing. Not that bad.

      On the others hand some carrier in some region abuse those.

    • The fact that there is no carrier support is driving me crazy. If the phone does well do you think eventually there will be carrier support?

    • Nundo

      I can only hope that it turns out like a LG V20 situation where Freedom mobile started carrying it, then other carriers followed. However, I do remember when the HTC 10 came out and it was a Bell mobility exclusive for three months, other carriers had the chance to pick it up and didn’t. Maybe HTC has decided to not depend on carriers or carriers decided not to add the device to their portfolio. Either way, you never know. I have the HTC 10 and it’s a great device. I was hoping to upgrade to it but $1000 seems too steep at the moment..

    There is already a promotion in the states for $599 for this phone. Yet it’s going for $999 cad.

    It’s right on HTCs own website. You get $50 if you type in the promo code LOVEU11.

    • jay

      not working and phone is 899

    • Mohammad Jab

      The code is LOVEU11CA
      It is bringing the phone to 824 CAD

    • Arman

      Code works! Might be worth it for $824

  • jay

    i like it a lot. try to buy a S8 or LG phone all carrier locked and so. i know they are able to unlock them but good luck getting updates. not sure how that works with HTC since they have no carrier support
