With top of the line hardware and a scaled back user interface, HTC is still trying to position itself as the premium Android manufacturer. The HTC 10 gets a lot of things right, but it’s also just very ordinary in a crowded marketplace of flagship devices. And here are our review of the HTC 10 Review and please to watch below video for specific information.

The HTC 10 is undoubtedly a premium device — but it has taken a decidedly different approach than the M9 or M8 before it. The backside now has less of a gentle curve and more of a chamfered look. The iconic dual front-facing BoomSound speakers have been relocated, taking away one of the best features of HTC’s flagship line. And capacitive keys have been added, doing away with the old software keys.
At its thickest, it’s 9mm, making it significantly thicker than its closest rivals, the LG G5 at 7.7mm, the Galaxy S7 at 7.6mm, and the iPhone 6S at 7.1mm. It’s also slightly heavier than those phones, but the difference is hardly noticeable. In the hand, it still feels like a typical smartphone — though the unibody metal design does give it a very iPhone-like feel.
The screen is gorgeous and very high resolution at 2560 x 1440 pixels, but it’s definitely not the brightest screen out there. At 5.2″ diagonally, it’s also one of the smallest screens on a flagship smartphone of this size (the G5 is 5.3″ and the S7 is 5.5″).
Up top is the lone headphone jack, accompanied by a plastic panel to allow the radio waves to escape that are blocked by the aluminum body. The right side has a highly textured power button just below the volume rocker, along with the nanoSIM card slot. The bottom has one of the speakers (the other is built into the earpiece), and the left side has the microSD card slot.
Overall, it has a very sturdy and solid feel to it, but it’s also pretty generic now. Nice design with a bottom-facing speaker and a physical home button is pretty standard by now, and it feels like HTC has fallen more into line with everyone else with the 10, rather than creating a phone that stands out.
Still, that doesn’t negate the fact that it is well built. This is nothing like the cheap plastic Androids of yesteryear.
HTC is back with their HTC Sense interface, this time layered over Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It’s pretty basic and quite similar to stock Android in the notification bar and Settings menu, but the home screen still has Blinkfeed and a vertically-scrolling app drawer.
The Quick Settings have been adjusted a little bit, giving you access to the calculator app. HTC has pre-loaded a few apps that some might consider bloatware, including Dr.eye Cloud, HTC VIP, KKBOX, and News Republic.
