This year the competition in the smartphone industry has gotten a bit stiffer due to all the great phones that are currently on the market. The iPhone 6s, LG G5, and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are all great phones and the newly released HTC 10 is right there with the best of them. The HTC 10 is unquestionably the best flagship smartphone that HTC has ever produced. It’s well designed, easy to navigate, and it comes packed with a host of features to ensure a great user experience.
The past few years hasn’t been very good for HTC, the HTC One A9 and HTC One M9 were not up to par with the competition in the cell phone industry. However, HTC has gained some ground with the release of the HTC 10, this device has a brand new look and feel to it which is quite different from that of its predecessors.
The HTC 10 looks like a hybrid between the Samsung Galaxy S7 and an iPhone, it’s quite an eclectic mix of style and sophistication that will appeal to the masses of smartphone enthusiasts who are seeking the hottest phone on the market. The HTC 10 is primarily made of metal and it’s curves fit nicely into the contour of your hands which makes it relatively easy to handle this device.
The main camera is located in the typical position at the back of the phone and it’s slightly elevated. Next to the main camera is a LED flash and the laser auto-focus system which fits in nicely with the design of the phone, it doesn’t stand out as much as it does with some of the other smartphones on the market today. The headphone jack and the USB-C port are located at the bottom of the phone.
The volume buttons are located in the typical position at the right side of the phone along with the sleep and wake button. The HTC 10 has a Nano Sim tray along with a microSD card tray. In quite a few of the other smartphones there is only one tray which contains both elements.
Directly below the display screen, there is a capacitive home key touchpad which houses a fingerprint scanner. The HTC 10 and the Galaxy S7 are similar in size, however, the HTC 10 is slightly taller and weighs a bit more than the Galaxy S7. When I hold the HTC 10 in my hands I feel as though I am holding a solid high-end phone.
The HTC 10 comes with a 5.2-inch quad-HD display screen with 2560 x 1440 quad-HD resolution which covers a whopping 99.9% of the sRGB color gamut. However, the display screen in the HTC 10 does not look as robust as the Samsung Super AMOLED screen.
But the HTC 10 screen is still quite attractive the large array of color gamut is great for playing video games and watching videos. The HTC 10 quad-HD display screen manages to keep its structural integrity when it’s tilted to the side and it’s being viewed from different angles.
The call quality on the HTC 10 is good and the HTC 10 comes with a 3,000mAh battery which lasts about 1 day if you’re constantly using it. Even though the battery life isn’t bad, it could have been better. Overall the HTC 10 is a great phone with good features and functionality.
