[Specs Comparison] The Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, LG G5, And HTC 10

There are a TON of Android phone manufactures in the world. Yet, here in the US, only three have wide enough appeal to have their flagship devices sold by all 4 major US carriers (well, in HTC's case 3 out of 4). Those manufacturers are, of course, Samsung, LG, and HTC. Now that their 2016 flagships, the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, LG G5, & HTC 10 have all been announced, many of you will be tasked with the unenviable mission of deciding which of these three devices will be your next phone.

To help you with that decision, I've prepared a comparative spec chart so you can see how these three devices measure up to one another.

[Specs Comparison] HTC 10, HTC One A9, & HTC One M9

The HTC family welcomed a new member yesterday – the HTC 10. From our initial impressions, it's a pretty sweet phone that packs some impressive hardware and software. However, the 10 isn't the only phone HTC makes, and it can be difficult to keep track of changes from one product generation to the next. With that in mind, I've put together a handy-dandy chart for you, our dear readers, so you can compare HTC's last three flagships spec by spec*.

When it announced the HTC 10 yesterday, the company snuck in an interesting tidbit in its press release regarding the availability of two variants with different Snapdragon processors that are headed to different markets.

If you head over to the smartphone's page on HTC's site in India, Indonesia, China, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, or Myanmar, you'll see a small "Lifestyle" written next to the HTC 10's name.

HTC's Dot View Case Is Being Replaced With The HTC Ice View Case For The New HTC 10

One of the most visually striking accessories for the HTC One M8 and M9 was the HTC Dot View case. The flip cases had a cool retro vibe with pixellated clocks, weather icons, and other notifications formed by the screen shining through a matrix of tiny holes cut into the case's protective screen cover. Well, the days of the Dot View case are over, and in its place HTC has announced a new flip cover case, the Ice View which is available on HTC's website for $49.99.

The Ice View has a very similar construction to the Dot View case it replaces.

A Quick Hands-On With And First Impressions Of The HTC 10

Let us waste no time: the HTC 10 is here, and we're able to tell you a little bit about it today (a very, very little, frankly). While the phone doesn't ship to consumers (in the US, at least) until early May, we've got a production unlocked version of the US handset right now, and I've got some thoughts on it. Unfortunately, I am only able to tell you about certain aspects of the phone in strongly suggested single sentences (i.e., camera, speed, display, audio performance, software). Which is weird. But hey, I'll try!

The design of phone is fair game, though, so let's dig in on this point.

HTC started testing its very own memory cleaner app just recently in the HTC Preview program, and now Boost+ has made its debut in the Play Store. Oh, it does more than clean memory. It locks apps, empties cache, and so on, but do you want any of it? Too bad, you can't use it anyway.
