HTC 10 Unboxing – PhoneDog
This year, HTC decided to go with a 5.2 inch, Quad HD Display, with a resolution of, 2560 X 1440, making up a pixel density of 564 ppi. As for sound, the HTC 10 features HTC BoomSound for a high quality listening experience, although, they decided to replace the bottom speaker grill with a single button, which includes a built in fingerprint sensor. To the right of the top speaker grill we have a 5MP, ƒ/1.8 aperture, front facing camera with autofocus and Optical Image Stabilization, OIS, for all of your selfie needs.The phone is light in weight and feels good in the hand. There is a 3.5mm Headphone Jack on the top of the phone and a USB-C connection port on the bottom of the device which supports Quick Charge 3.0 for up to 50% charge in 30 minutes.
Around the back, we have a 12MP, ƒ/1.8 aperture, back camera with OIS and to the right we have a dual tone LED flash to shoot your all of your 4K shots.
As for Software, the HTC Sense theme supports gestures and more like, Motion Launch, Sensor Hub, HTC Connect, Pocket Mode and much more.
What’s Inside the HTC 10?
The HTC 10 uses a Nano SIM card and supports a Microsd card, for up to 2TB expandable storage, and casting services like chromecast and AirPlay. There is a 3000 mAh battery, which is said to give 2 days of battery life, 4GB of RAM, NFC, and the 64bit, 2.2GHz, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. As of right now there is only an HTC 10, 32GB model and there is talk of markets outside the United States of receiving a 64GB model in the future.When you look at this phone and compare it to the HTC M9 we have a much better device. I personally am happy that HTC has decided to step up their photography game and be the first to include OIS in both the rear and front cameras and I wish more smartphone manufacturers would jump on board.
Is The HTC 10 The Best New Smartphone?
The HTC 10 comes in three flavors, Glacial Silver and Carbon Gray, Topaz Gold and starts at $699.00 for the 32GB. Personally, I think the $699.00 price tag is a little much for this phone; it looks to be on par with similar phones released recently. But is it the best smartphone? Well, let me say this, I think anyone who decides to purchase the HTC 10 device will be more than happy with it’s performance but the decision is ultimately yours. With the HTC 10, you get a great phone with up to date specifications and you won’t have to worry about being left in the dust.
