HTC unveiled the HTC 10, hoping to take Samsung Galaxy S7, LG G5 and Apple’s iPhone 7, this is their lastest attempt to save its business of flagship smartphone.
The company notes that HTC 10 was stressed to over 168 hours of extreme temperature test, ranging from -20°C (-4°F) to 60°C (140°F) plus over a 10, 000 drop, bend, scratch and corrosion test has been done to the device. Does this mean you don’t need a protective case? We are hopeful.
The camera is the worlds first optically stabilized with larger aperture f1.8 lenses, from front to rear camera, larger sensors, a 12MP UltraPixles with laser autofocus on the back, not to mention a wide-angle lens and screen flash on the front. The HTC 10 camera was designed to launch as fast as 0.6 secons, RAW format supported too.

You can also create your personal audio that are tuned to your hearing. The BoomSound Hi-Fi speakers also features a separate tweeter and woofer design, a dedicated amplifier for each. Is this still a smartphone?
The HTC 10 quad HD display is 30% more colorful and 50% more responsive to touch than it’s current predecessor.
