The HTC 10 has been a major disappointment for the Taiwanese company so much so that it has been doing pretty much everything in order to push the device.
It was originally available for $699, but there have been several price cuts along the way. The phone has been available for $599 for the last few weeks and a recent promotional offer to the price even lower to $549. It has just been revealed that the offer has been extended until October 16. At this price point, the HTC 10 has to be one of the best devices.
Featuring a 5.2 inch display with QHD resolution, the HTC 10 offers the ability to enjoy the Sense user interface that is brilliant. Over the years, HTC has modified its Sense UI, which used to be one of the best in the business with unparalleled customization options, so that it does not consume a chunk of the memory as it once used to. Even if it does, the HTC 10 might just be able to handle anything in the way. There is plenty of RAM – 4 GB – to handle day-to-day tasks along with special features, while the snapdragon 820 processor remains as one of the fastest.
This combination ensures that the HTC 10 can provide a class leading level of performance. Furthermore, HTC has also announced that the HTC 10 will be one of the first devices to receive Android Nougat through a software update. The company is currently working on this new option, which is likely to be available in the next few weeks.
A 12-megapixel camera in the rear seems to be the industry standard of late, as manufacturers are no longer choosing megapixel count. Instead, it is about redefining the cameras to get the best possible outcome. Even though it involves a lot of post processing, the HTC 10 pictures do not tend to provide an oversaturated look, which is not a desirable quality when it comes to pictures
The HTC 10 is one of the few phones on the market that does offer the latest generation USB technology. Apart from a USB Type-C port, the phone uses USB v3.1. The USB port accepts quite a lot of charge coming in from the fastest charging technology, which can take up the battery from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes. This figure is slightly lower than the 0 to 60% time taken by the OnePlus 3.
