HTC 10: When the HTC One M9 is released, it wins large amount of praise on its beautiful design. And the HTC 10 also looks great. The first impression it leaves to me is "chunky". Actually, this is not a negative word since HTC's design is not chasing the ultra-slim hand feeling. Plus, there is another shining point: HTC 10 has no logo on the front, a big pleasure for HTC fans, indeed.
