If you want to stick to an Android flagship phone and want something other than the glass build of Samsung flagship phones, do consider the HTC 10 if you’re returning Galaxy Note 7 in India. The HTC 10 performs really great in some places where the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge fall behind. The HTC 10 has great speakers, if you like to listen to music on your phone’s speakers.

In terms of performance, the HTC 10 is just as good as the Galaxy Note 7, S7 and S7 Edge. Another thing that separates the HTC 10 from the Samsung phones is that the Android skin in it is very light, it does not have any extra useless apps from HTC or any other third-party developer.
