Over the years we have seen this android industry have bought laurels to Smartphone manufacturers and there have been a lot of success stories to count on. This booming android’s market witnessed a lot of new companies come and go. HTC has had a graph of it’s own. A company which has seen all the highs is now facing the music in this overly competitive market and has been shy on innovation and hasn’t been able to surprise its users with some over the edge features or something to woo about. In lieu to stay alive in the market brand has come with a new launch, a successor to m8 and m9, which is HTC 10.

Let’s take a peek at the HTC 10 specs:-htc 10


When we talk about HTC, we talk about design. The design of the phones has been there USP for around a decade. They have dropped the trademark “massive speaker grill”. An all metal phone which kinda looks like the old HTC phones which came before 2k14. The phone feels like it has been given an aluminum touch and has the feel good factor when you hold it.


The phone has a 5.15-inch LCD display which has a pixel density of 570ppi and would be 2560×1440 pixels.

Processor and whereabouts

Qualcomm Snapdragon 820quad-core chipset (two 2.15GHz Kryo cores and two 1.6 GHz Kryo cores). I would say this is at par with the existing techno phones, nothing special here.


A 12 megapixel primary shooter to go with a 5MP front facing camera lens has been the industry standard for high end phones and HTC 10 does not disappoint us here.htc_10_launch date camera


The brand offers two variants of this new launch which gives the buyer option to choose from a 32GB or 64GB inbuilt memory option on the phone. You obviously get a memory card slot for adding up to the capacity of the phone It offers 4GB RAM to go with so would be fast and no lags expected.

Battery and Usage Life

The phone features a 3,000mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge. This is also a routine feature I would say. They could have given a larger battery size with increasing usage nowadays.

Operating System

It’ll be out-of-the-box Android 6.0 a.k.a Marshmallow topped up with HTC Sense to give the user a customized experience when it comes to UI part of it.

Pricing and Costing

It has been launched in US at 699$ which counts out to be around 45,000 INR or so. So we can count on it to be a competitor to the high end phones.

So, will you buy it? Or you won’t. Let us know with your comments and reviews.
