What We Liked

  • Elegantly chiseled unibody design
  • Feels solid, and looks handsome, with the same industrial aesthetic that HTC is famous for
  • Solid, sturdy build, that should be able to take a lot of wear and tear
  • Excellent, sharp display
  • Settings to let you tune the color accuracy to your personal preference
  • Fantastic, light, yet highly customizable user interface, with unique themes, and HTC's signature Blinkfeed
  • Excellent, butter-smooth performance
  • Very good rear camera
  • Excellent front camera for selfies
  • Brilliant audio quality - this is the phone to get if you want to get the best audio on a smartphone
  • Music through the dual audio speakers is loud and clear
  • Music through the earbuds is even better with deep bass and excellent clarity
  • Compatible with Apple's AirPlay streaming standard (can stream music to supported devices)
  • The battery uses Quick Charge 3.0 technology from Qualcomm, which promises a 50 percent charge in 30 minutes
  • Fast and accurate fingerprint sensor

What We Didn't

  • Battery life is good, but doesn't last quite as long as its top competitors
  • Camera performance is very good, but is still just a little behind the other top flagships - the Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 6S
