The HTC 10 is a development of the body design of the HTC one models that came back it. The entire metal unibody that previous handset evolved. That is anodized, and bead-blasted aluminum is giving a slick, however, understated finish. The largest design differentiator in the HTC 10 is the deep rear chamfer. It adds a unique look to the handset, although it’s a relatively straightforward solution: HTC isn’t reinventing the wheel, it’s very a lot working with what it knows.


The HTC 10 features a 5.2-inch QHD display protected with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The display provides very crisp and bright color reproduction. It also performs properly with excessive brightness levels and provides easy visibility in direct sunlight. The viewing angles were also beautiful, and big screen makes gaming a pleasant experience.


The HTC 10 currently runs on Android’s Marshmallow with a planned upgrade to Nougat, meaning it would run the latest Android software with relative ease. With the quad-core Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 CPU, this device is built for higher end functionality.

Hardware and performance

One thing the HTC 10 isn’t quick on is raw processing power because it’s made one of Qualcomm’s brand-new quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon inside it. It’s also got 4GB of RAM, putting it neck-and-neck with the LG G5. However, because the HTC 10 still felt incredibly fast and nippy when browsing the web, scoring an impressive 1,503 in Peacekeeper, and swiping via its Android home screens was slick and responsive. The most important of which is its Wi-Fi efficiency, which is only terrible pretty much throughout the board. Connections present full strength, but applications and content won’t load and refresh; that affected applications. Cast performance was also hindered by this as well, and pretty much forced me to use 4G for the whole of the test period and my Huawei P9 for casting music and different media around the home.


The HTC 10 is provided with a 12-megapixel rear camera, with a Sony sensor providing large 1.55µm pixels. That is being called an UltraPixel camera, but you can safely ignore that branding, as that’s all it’s. The re are a f/1.8 aperture and optical image stabilization, as well as laser autofocus. The front camera is also accomplished. The re’s a 5-megapixel camera providing each autofocus and optical image stabilization, as well as featuring an adaptive selfie flash.

Battery Life

In Battery, the HTC 10 came with a non-removable 3,000 mAh unit and provided that that is present capacity commonplace with this year’s flagships, it’s no surprise that HTC has followed swimsuit. We haven’t had a hard time getting a full day of work and play out of this device, with the phone allowing for around 4.5 hours of screen-on time.

Connectivity Options

BluetoothYes, v 4.20
Wi-Fi supported802.11 a/b/g/n
Number of SIMs1


Whereas the HTC 10 is a nice device in its personal right, it isn’t quite the phone that may bring HTC back to the promised land. However, that doesn’t make it bad. This device does a lot that’s very spectacular. With a strong design and higher end insides, the HTC 10 does compete with the big boys, however, falls a little quick in the end. Still, those in the market for a higher end device shouldn’t miss out on the HTC 10. With decent performance, excellent sound output and a strong body, HTC went all out with this smartphone, and it paid off—for the most half.
