2-minute Review [Positives]
  • 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 front camera for selfies
  • Brilliant audio quality - this is the phone to get if you want to get the best audio on a smartphone

  • Beautiful, polished, luxurious design - with a lot of attention to detail
  • The curved back and sides make it comfortable to hold
  • Nice, compact size
  • Dust Proof and Water Resistant
  • Beautiful, high-end display, with near-perfect color accuracy
  • The new "always-on" display feature is a nice touch, and takes the hassle out of checking out the time
  • Samsung's Touchwiz UI over Android is now even lighter, and has less bloat
  • Top-notch, chart-leading performance backed by the powerful hardware
  • Brilliant, awesome, fast camera, with OIS, that does well even in low-light conditions
  • Good call quality
  • Very good audio quality
  • Very good battery life
  • Quick charging, and wireless charging support
  • microSD storage slot
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Camera performance is very good, but is still just a little behind the other top flagships - the Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 6S
  • Battery life is good, but doesn't last quite as long as its top competitors
  • The shiny metal-and-glass back is a smudge magnet
