Will Telus carry the long awaited HTC 10?


Pretty pumped about the HTC 10 that was released today.


Will Telus be carrying this HTC model in the future?


Will Telus be carrying any HTC phones in the future?

Telus never leaks what devices they'll carry. We'll all find out when (if) they announce it.


That being said, it does look like a sweet phone. Wonder how it compares to the Galaxy S7, aside from HTC releasing software updates faster than Samsung.

I kind of figured that too, however the US HTC site has a few carriers already listed on their site (T-Mobile and AT&T). On the Canadian site, it is listed as only unlocked version...Hopefully they release the info soon!

it's a unique phone: i'm a bit of an audiophile (fab site is

here is why this phone is unique esp if quality sound is your gig:



was very skeptical of HTC's claims of excellent headphone audio on the HTC 10. Not only was I surprised at the results of both audio benchmarking and listening, but I found out my skepticism (as well as most everyone else with the same concerns) was unfounded.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 does a lot of things right, but clear audio isn't one of those things. Something in the digital to analog converter circuit introduces an extreme amount of noise and crosstalk into the analog output, and phones like the U.S. Galaxy S7 and LG G5sound pretty poor because of this.

After doing some testing, I was presented with results that just didn't make sense from the HTC 10 — it was better than it should be, even with extra work and attention to the analog circuit that brings signal from the DAC output to the headphone jack. You can only do so much magic to a bad signal. I asked HTC how they did it, and found out that some assumptions about the HTC 10 audio hardware that the internet (and myself) has are incorrectThe HTC 10 uses a stand-alone DAC as well as headphone amp and isn't using the Snapdragon 820 DAC. This is pretty important, and why the HTC 10 sounds as good as it does.

We use a discrete DAC (not one on the SoC) in addition to the amp and have done a ton of PCB engineering to insure the best possible signal-to-noise ratio. Credit to HTC engineering, not off-the-shelf components.

I think it's pretty safe to say if AT&T can't/won't carry it, then TELUS won't either.
