What did HTC put in the HTC 10 to make it a phone worth considering? Quite a bit actually. The phone features all of the specs you hope to see from a 2016 flagship, like a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM, microSD slot, 12MP camera with f/1.8 lens and 1.55 micron pixels, the ultimate selfie camera, a metal body, fast fingerprint scanner, 3000mAh battery with quick charging, USB Type-C port, and Android Marshmallow.
See, it’s sort of got it all. Is all of that enough to help HTC return to smartphone glory? Well, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge still exist, so it isn’t going to be easy. So far, though, HTC seems to be doing the right things with the 10, other than with the price, which weighs in at $699.
More to come!
