HTC launched a series of Smartphones in india which include the flagship HTC 10, One X9, Desire Series 628, 630, 825 and 830. Let’s have a look at the HTC 10 specs and features to decide if it’s worth the price or no.
Display and Hardware
HTC sports a 5.2″ QHD display and runs Android Marshmallow with the latest Sense UI. For Hardware, the Smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM. HTC 10 offers 32GB memory on board, and supports microSD cards of up to 2TB in size.
For Display, I can say, HTC could have done better in Terms of Display Size. I have no idea why companies are still working on 5.2″ Display for Flagship Devices. Though at the launch event, HTC claimed that the handset’s display got the best touch response when compared to Other flagship smartphones like iPhone 6S , Sony Xperia Z5 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 . Since it’s a matter of milliseconds, it may not effect consumer working any way. .
It is too early to jump to any conclusions, though. We have used smartphones running on the latest Snapdragon 820 before, and all of them have worked great.
The HTC 10 sports a Rear camera with 12-UltraPixel with f/1.8 aperture , other features include laser autofocus, OIS ( optical image stabilisation ) and a dual-tone LED flash. The Camera also features slow-mo recording, 4K video recording with Hi-Res audio, Video Pic, Zoe Capture and Hyperlapse.
For selfie Lovers, HTC 10 got a 5-megapixel OIS snapper with f/1.8 aperture, auto HDR, an ultra-wide angle lens, and live makeup.
Some of the camera modes in the HTC 10 include Self Timer, Auto-HDR, Panorama, Continuous shooting (up to 8 frames per second) and Hyperlapse.
The front-facing camera is on track. HTC 10 gave decent results with its 5MP front-facing auto-focus camera. The wide-angle front-facing camera also has a BSI sensor with optical image stabilization.
For Connectivity , HTC 10 features USB Type-C port, 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, DLNA, DisplayPort, Miracast, AirPlay, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2 and A-GPS.
The handset is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery, supported by Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology, which is supposed to charge up to 50 percent in 30 minutes. Too early to say about Battery life, but on specs it seems really good.
Price and Color Variants
The HTC 10 has been priced at Rs 52,990 and can be purchased in two colour choices – Carbon Grey or Topaz Gold. It will be going on sale on June 5th, and the first 500 customers will get the Ice View cover for free.
What is Good and bad about HTC 10
Definitely powerful specs, good sound, Vibrant Display, Good storage capacity, Elegant Unibody Design, but is it enough !!
Missing points are Small Screen, Small battery and above all Way too expensive.
If you are not hesitant to buy a Small screen Smartphone, Go for it, but my suggestion is better wait if you are not in hurry.
At this price point, you have lot of Options to go for, mainly LG G5, One Plus 3 ( to be launched soon ), Galaxy S6 and S7 series, Galaxy Note 5. Personally my answer is a Big No to HTC 10.
