    I plan on using the SanDisk Ultra 128GB microSDXC UHS-I card. If the phone and I survive for a few more years, I may order a 2TB microSD card if one is available.

    Disappointed they've stopped doing the official car mount - just a generic holder by the look of things

    What do you folks think of the HTC Ice View Cover? I usually use a bumper case on my phones and I don't recall ever spending more than $25.00 on a case, but the Ice View Cover is intriguing.

    I liked the look of Dot View better ( had one on my M8 until it tore), Ice View appears to offer more protection though. I'd get one if I had an HTC10.

    Depends on what is important for you. If you want to use the 'adoptable' storage feature to utilize SD card as internal storage you would need a more expensive (faster) UHS1-U3 SD card, which has faster read/write speeds. If you just need a place for pics and music, then the nicely priced UHS1-U1 cards are more than adequate.
    I personally hate those 'flip' cases.

    I may go naked for a bit, but my go to case is the Incipio. Hands down the best case I've ever used.

    Nice... Worth noting that that will not work for 'internal' storage. Only goof for storing pics/vids/etc... Though I don't really see the need for more expandable storage, so I think its a moot point

    Why don't you think it would work as adoptable (internal) storage? It's a high-speed card (UHS-I, 60MB/s) although I'll grant you a faster card such as the SanDisk Ultra 128GB microSDXC (UHS-I, 80MB/s) would be better. However, as you say it's a moot point for must of us who will be using microSD cards for external storage.

    For use as internal (adoptable) storage it *HAS* to be UHS1-U3, the U1's are not a fast enough. Currently there are 2 classes of UHS cards.
    Tried on a newly purchased card (deal on phandroid) and the phone yells at you and tells you it won't work. This was an HTC running 6.0.1

    OK, thanks for the info. It looks as if the SanDisk Extreme PRO 64GB UHS-I/U3 Micro SDXC Memory Card ($46.99 on Amazon) would meet that requirement for use as internal (adoptable) storage.

    Yes, as long as it says U3 it will work. U1 will not, found out after I bought one (for that purpose) and tried to format as internal...

    Normally I would agree with @NightAngel79; however, after watching the Android Authority video review of the HTC 10 Ice View Case I pre-ordered one. The Ice View Case seems to offer a lot of functionality, unlike other flip cases I've seen. I'll post my personal opinion if the phone and case ever arrive. I don't know anything about product promotion, but it seems foolish to create a lot of hype so far in advance of product availability.

    I like the idea of it, but I HATE black accessories. That black case would make it way too hard to find my phone in a purse or bag. If the ice view case ever comes in some other colors, I'm in.

    Did you get it yet? Is the screen changeable? I am not a fan of those pink and green colors.

    Hey guys,
    So I've never actually seen a phone release without a otterbox readily available. So now I'm stuck with a spigen case with no screen protector. Was just wondering what's the best screen protector available until I'm assuming otterbox makes a case

    How's the clarity and feel of it. Cause I know they diminish the crispness and fluidity of touch a bit

    Touch wise I can not tell a difference but virtually I notice it but not to the point where it bothers me

    Spigen actually makes really great screen protectors. You bought their case, you should have picked up their screen protector too. They have great material
