I think it is a great phone and in many ways better than S8. Battery is the same size as S8 so fingers crossed battery life will be decent. I am also curious about the camera - finally HTC has a good camera phone ?
Shame about the 3.5 MM jack....😢
Indeed, this removing 3.5mm jack trend has to stop, it's getting absolutely ridiculous, it's not necessary at this point.
This phone looks fantastic though, I'm not sure if it will help HTC turn around their poor performance but one can only hope.
Music ... audio however we enjoy it is THE END Pursuit ... not the medium we use to carrier it.
FM Radio vs:
Vinyl/Records > Cassette > CDs, AudioCD/DVD, MP3/AAC/Lossless audio containers for Digital music>
Purchasing Albums & Direct Downloads vs Streaming (never really storing music yet tagging it for easier finding),
^ the ONLY thing that was EVER LOSSED in this progression is:
News - Live news (yet gained in Streaming content, Podcasts, or news streaming - or the internet)
Audio quality after cassettes and shortly after regained through Lossless codecs and containers.
BUT Music, Sound has continually evolved SURELY and SANELY you'd NOT argue that you'd want to go back to carrying a Sony Walkman cassette player or only an FM portable pocket radio to listen to your music in which the latter YOU had no control over the playlist or when the tracks YOU enjoy would be played or not?
So in the same argument and light ....
wait for quality headphones for USB-C to Analog or direct digital for playback or to wireless to FULLY evolve with decent (15hrs +) playback time.
Within 2yrs this argument will be moot, trust me on this!
