    Dumping my iphone 5s and going back to Android. Which one do you recommend? I've read reviews and they seem pretty neck and neck. The waterproofing makes me lean towards the Samsung but I like the clean mature looking user interface of the HTC. Any bugs/quirks that you only notice after using the phones for a while? The S7 Edge is safe from exploding right? That was just the Note 7?

    The explosions are limited to the Note 7, you're safe with an S7/S7 Edge in your pocket :yy:

    But yeah, waterproofing is the largest functional difference, beyond that they're fairly equal in terms of specs, features and performance. My vote would personally go to the S7 Edge, the screen and camera are better (the HTC 10's are also great, they're just simply not as good as Samsung's top tier display/camera), it has a larger battery, and in my opinion it's the most attractively designed Android phone ever.

    The one potential sticking point is the size of the screen- coming from a tiny 4" iPhone 5S, the 5.5" display of the S7 Edge is going to feel enormous. You can see a comparison of the two phones by clicking here. The ~5" screen size of the HTC 10 seems to have settled as the ideal mainstream screen size over the last couple of years, and 5.5" displays are considered on the upper end of manageable for most people. Thankfully the curved edges make it easier to hold than other large screen phones, but I'd definitely suggest trying to get your hands on one to see how it feels before committing to a purchase.
