The smartphone industry is a tough one to be in, especially because several companies are always releasing new handhelds that make even the relatively new units seem outdated. Despite this reality, the HTC 10 has held up fairly well in the market. It was released almost a year ago, but several publications still hail it as one of the best Android devices.
As Trusted Reviews noted, the HTC 10 has stayed notably fast despite its months of use. Unlike some of its same-generation competition, the unit opens games in a matter of seconds and there have been very little complaints about software crashes. More importantly, however, it works virtually stutter-free, which means that users are able to use the device smoothly and without delay.
The publication also noted that the device is durable enough to survive several bumps and significant falls without accumulating any dents or scratches. The battery life has admittedly deteriorated, but not enough to be a reason for a change as there is still enough power to last the entire day on a single full charge.
The one thing that truly sets the HTC 10 apart from the competition, however, is its mastery of sound and its correspondingly appeal to music fans. The company itself has cemented its name in the tech industry because of its developments in the audio market and its products' quality. In this sense, the publication noted that the handheld is practically unmatched.
The HTC 10 was released in May 2016, after its announcement the month before. As GSM Arena has confirmed, it has a 5.2-inch screen with a pixel resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. It runs out of the box on Android v6.0.1 Marshmallow but it is upgradable to 7.0 Nougat. The device runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM and has a microSD slot for expandable storage for up to 256GB. Its rear and front cameras are 12 megapixels and 5 megapixels respectively.
