HTC has largely stuck to what it knows when it comes to the rest of the design. As usual it's one of the better options out there, sounding clear and going loud enough to watch video at home. The home button doubles as a snappy fingerprint scanner; the lock button and volume rocker sit within reaching distance on the right hand side. It'll be the first time Alexa has been fully integrated into a phone – expect it in a firmware update around July. The amp in the adapter struggles to drive less sensitive headphones, and the volume doesn't go as loud as we'd like. It's a chrome finish, so it's a fingerprint nightmare, but when polished looks very nice indeed. It's well balanced and plentifully detailed - but could be more dynamic. Contrast is good enough to challenge AMOLED too – blacks won't go quite as deep, but they come close, and highlights are filled with enough oomph to push through dark scenes with authority. It's not something you could activate by mistake. As it is, it's a touch laid-back – an easy listen, but not the most engaging. This bakes layers of colour into the glass itself, so it looks different depending on the angle you view it from. Relationship b/w banker and customer. They're better than a lot of bundled buds, but have a tendency to be a little bass-heavy for our tastes, and the noise-cancelling is subtle at best. Pictures have a real sense of depth and we don't struggle with any processing or motion niggles. Our sample is silver, but can look ice blue in the right light. Even if an adapter is included in the box, it's rarely there when you need it. It's well built and fast in use, with a great camera and video performance that's among the best we've seen this year. It won't give Sony's two-day battery life a run for its money, but it manages to make it through a whole day with some to spare - as long as you aren't doing a significant amount of video streaming. And despite sounding like a gimmick, the squeezable sides are actually quite useful. Detail levels are also top-notch, boasting crisp outlines and finely drawn textures. You can set how hard you have to squeeze for it to register but, even on the lowest setting, you have to make a definite squeeze motion. 'Always On' HDR does a really good job at brightening up images too, and deals well with balancing out tricky lighting conditions. HTC has ditched the metal it has embraced since the days of the HTC One and instead uses glass, and a process it calls Liquid Surface. This is no doubt helped by the fact HTC's Sense UI is pretty light on its feet. The adjusted sound is cleaner and louder, but sounds processed, and the added bite it gives to the treble verges on harsh. The idea is that you can use it as a shortcut to access certain functions. Like Apple, HTC has decided to ditch the headphone jack. You can then listen to the before and after, and choose which you prefer. This is one of the best we've seen from a phone this year.

A pair of USB-C in-ears is included, with active noise cancellation. It runs smoothly with whatever we throw at it – we don't notice a single delay or hiccup. It’s a good idea in principle, but we find shots are often out of focus because of the shake that occurs when you squeeze. It contains touch-sensitive panels built into the lower half of the phone, so it's able to tell when you apply pressure to the sides. That's not to say it's lacking in flourishes. Once in the camera, squeeze again to take a photo. In good light, images look vibrant and colours are spot on. There are five colours to choose from – black, white, blue, silver or red. Google's own Assistant is ready to help you straight out of the box, but Alexa integration is coming soon too. Our only bugbear is the squeezy section is just a touch too close to the lock button, so sometimes we lock the phone with our thumb mid-squeeze. HTC uses its front-facing Boomsound speakers to handle headphone-free sound. It works from the lock screen so, once you get in the habit, it can save some time. Thankfully, audio streaming proves to be less battery sapping and general browsing doesn't deliver the same hit either. One place it does double up is voice assistants. You get a few HTC additions, but it largely uses Google's apps as its default instead of unnecessarily doubling up. The dual pixel autofocus ensures quick and accurate focusing, while hybrid image stabilisation helps to keep photos looking sharp. We'd like the audio to be a touch more engaging and the battery life to be a little more convincing, but they're observations more than definite criticisms. It's not hugely detailed though, and could do with a touch more weight. Out of the box, the default is to launch the camera. HTC has opened up the functionality for developers to build into third-party apps too, so – a little like Apple's Force Touch – it could be we don't see the true benefit for a while.
Olympus 12-100mm f/4 IS Pro …. There's also an advanced mode for adding a secondary shortcut, for a squeeze and hold motion. That's where we find it falls down. The colour balance is fantastic, nailing skin-tones and putting just the right amount of punch behind brighter colours. You can change it so a squeeze gives you quick access to a specific app, or turns on the torch. That might make them more interesting, but it doesn't make them more talented.
