Does the HTC 10 price do justice to the specifications it boasts of? We will take a close look at the HTC 10 specifications. Many users and analysts were of the opinion that for some reasons HTC is reaching its bottom. And the hope for the company is the company’s latest smartphone in India – the HTC 10. What magic does the smartphone do will be a matter of concern for the company.
HTC Corporation, the Taiwanese consumer electronics company has a lot of hopes on this device to bail them out of the difficult times. Only time has the answer to the fate and future of the company.
HTC 10 Price
Launched in April this year, the HTC 10 specifications are balanced. On some counts, the specs are great and on some they are just okay. So, it doesn’t make this HTC device one of its kinds. Considering this, the HTC 10 price becomes a matter of subjective decision.
You will see a variety of price tags of the device online at the moment. The price of the HTC 10 varies from Rs. 48,990 to Rs. 56,990 – tagged as the best price, on various online stores. For example, the device costs Rs. 48,990 on Amazon. The same handset costs a tad more on OnlyMobiles with a price tag of Rs. 51,990. However, the HTC 10 price is the most on Tata CLiQ. From here, it will cost you Rs. 56,990 for this.
HTC 10 Specifications
In March this year, images of the Hero Phone HTC M10 were leaked. The device had a strong SD820 processor along with 6GB of RAM. The HTC 10 is also powered by 1.6GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC. However, it has a lower 4GB of RAM as compared to the HTC M10, which was launched in the following month. It has 5.20-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels with a 564 ppi.
It has 5.20-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels with a 564 ppi, which is the best in its class. For that extra layer of screen protection, you will get Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
The HTC smartphone comes with a built in storage of 32GB, which sounds okay initially. However, the upside is that it can support memory up to 2000GB or 2TB. No doubt, there are very less number of phones in the market at the moment that allows such a huge amount of expanded storage with a microSD card.
The HTC 10 isn’t certainly a device for clicking and shooting images-videos around. For a price that crosses at least INR 45K, one wouldn’t just expect a 5MP camera for selfies. However, don’t forget that the primary shooter is 12 Ultrapixel dual LED flash. So, on this factor, there’s an upside for the smartphone.
OS & Battery
The HTC runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the company’s HTC Sense 8.0 UI on top.
The lights are kept on by a 3000mAh non removable battery.
As far as the HTC 10 specifications are concerned, the connectivity options are aplenty. There’s GPRS, EDGE and also supports 3G and 4G with support for Cat 6 LTE. The Bluetooth version is 4.2 and Wi-Fi with 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2.4 & 5 GHz) and NFC. As for the USB connectivity goes, you have USB 2.0 along with USB Type-C port. HTC 10 is actually single SIM (GSM) device, which extends support to Nano-SIM.
Dimensions & Weight
The dimensions of the HTC 10 are 145.90mm x 71.90mm x 9.00mm – height, width and thickness respectively.
With a weight of just 161g, the phone is decent to hold and operate.
The Final Word
The HTC 10 is no doubt a great device and the company is very hopeful that it will turn around the fortunes for it. However, reports and analysts claim that the company is finding it very hard to sell even one million devices. HTC had trouble to find its feet going in the affordable market this year as well. The company could sell around 14 million units, which shows a deep decline of nearly 27% compared to the last year.
Remember that the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge together had sold more than 26 million devices since its launch. So, the difference in these numbers is very vivid.
However, the handset would be great for the avid lovers of gaming with its powerful battery backup. It just remains to be seen how many users see it this way.
A competitive HTC 10 price – even if it has to cut down on it up to some degree – coupled with some bold HTC 10 specifications will be a ray of hope for the Taiwanese company.
