Majority of people thinking like this. Remaining people likes HTC. Thats why HTC is in loss.

BoomSound is not an excuse for black bars - other phones have speakers on the bottom just facing back, and on the X9 they CAN put capacitive buttons instead of the black bar.

The design is actually quite nice. Certainly refreshing instead of the iphones and galaxies that basically look more and more the same with every generation.

Lord Bayron, 21 Feb 2016reading this comments sometimes makes me ask myself if some peop... moreI can understand view. But, its a very competitive market. They are the FIRST company to build an android phone! Yes. They got their time. People are complaining about the camera since 2013! You've to change/adapt fast. M7 camera was very good. All was needed to make it at-least 8MP from 4MP! But they didn't listen! Ultrapixel is great but they are (HTC) stupid, couldn't take advantage of it.

Edit: And about space for speaker? Look at HTC's X9 speaker. Thats the best way to implement front facing speaker without taking much space.

Very nice looking phones. But again, those "HTC Signature" black bars on top & bottom... Hmmm. Com'on HTC. ALL the reviews, comments about these black bars since M7 era (2013) & they still exists! WoW, bad move, you have to listen to some criticism! Even arrogant company like Samsung changed there phones design & UI completely, started from scratched after all these reviews. You got to listen or you'll be extinguished :-), we can't help.

Krrish, 20 Feb 2016Getup HTC. Where are you. You need to redesign the mobile footp... moreNo. And quite frankly, the demanding specificity of your request is quite unbecoming. You get a Lisa Frank coloring set and a Chinese finger trap. Consider yourself fortunate.

Sincerely,

Santa.

reading this comments sometimes makes me ask myself if some people are worth knowing...you're complaining about bezels and size of the screen...what on earth are you going to do with the 6'' + displays? that's practically a mini tablet...OK I agree that bezel-less smartphones look good, however you're missing something important about HTC that others don't have: build quality, best speakers on the phone, excellent innovations etc. Watched Youtube video one day. One guy left HTC one M9 submerged for almost 30 min...lets remember that HTC one m9 doesn't have IP67/68 certification...it's true that HTC has a lot of improvements to do like camera, better battery life, having HTC IP67/68 smartphone, marketing etc., however lets face it...even LG, Samsung, Apple and other big companies have a lot of improvements to do as much as HTC, so guys give them some time...

I hope they'll unveil this phone and it's specs today at MWC, phone looks interesting, stylish and out of the box design...holding crossed fingers for HTC

Krrish, 20 Feb 2016Getup HTC. Where are you. You need to redesign the mobile footp... morecan you named many devices with more than 100h endurance and more than 76% screen to body ratio???????? or just asked these for htc to destroy it???????? 2-3 devices have more than 100h endurance and they are in paper not in works and can't stay for 2days full usage...

AJ_74, 20 Feb 2016LMAO @ HTC. Giant phone w/ tiny screen because of ridiculous... moreIt really looks like that they're really trying hard to kill the company. No other manufacturer does this.

  • AnonD-268646

Big phones with on-screen button... I have no idea what is HTC trying to do. They should've put a capacitive button or even make the phone a bit shorter by reducing the horizontal bezel size if they opt for on-screen buttons.

  • AnonD-246723

I bet they think back bar bezel is innovative

  • Krrish

Getup HTC. Where are you. You need to redesign the mobile footprint. Few things you need to implement immediately.
1. Footprint must be greater than 76%
2. Endurance rating should be more than 100 hrs
3. Should have fingerprint security
4. IR blaster and gyro sensor compulsory
5. Retina display must(no need of QHD & 4K).
6. Make bezel less phones in the sizes of 4", 4.7", 5.2", 5.7"
7. Make a phone with pen like stylus. Size should be 6.4"&7"(Above mentioned points keep in mind : bezel less, battery endurance rating etc)

Well, they look awesome! and I think that I'll buy it, but first let's see the Specs.. I hope it comes soon!

*facepalm* so they either don't put the boom sound or they do, but with the ridiculous huge black line/logo. They are officially insane with 0 common sense.

  • AJ_74

LMAO @ HTC.

Giant phone w/ tiny screen because of ridiculously pointless bezels. While every other major manufacturer now "gets it" where screen:body is concerned, HTC is still living in 2012. This company won't be in business in 2018.

I suspect it will be a Desire device.
However I would rather see them bring Desire 828 Dual and One X9 to more markets, announcing their availability during the MWC.
Both phones pretty much cover the lower midrange (828) and upper midrange (X9) segments.
