HTC 10- Hands on review
Until August 18, you have a chance to buy an HTC 10 flagship phone at just £469.99 from HTC's UK website. You can do this by using a discount code SUMMER100 while making the purchase. However, the offer is not available for any purchases made at brick and mortar stores in the country.
In contrast, a 32GB SIM-free LG G5 is available at £499 and a 32GB SIM-free Galaxy S7 costs £549.99, same as the HTC 10 but for the recent discount being offered for the latter. HTC has been known for over-pricing its phones- the One A9 costs £400, so the recent price cut for the HTC 10 is a chance few can afford to miss out on.
HTC 10 features a 5.2-inch display which packs a Quad HD resolution with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, a feat bettered only by the 4K display in Sony's Xperia Z5 Premium phablet. The display features a density of 564 ppi and is a Super LCD 5 one sheathed by a strong Gorilla Glass screen with slightly curved edges.
Spec comparison: HTC 10 vs LG G5 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 vs Apple iPhone 6S vs Sony Xperia Z5
HTC 10 features the latest and the most powerful Snapdragon 820 processor and an Adreno 530 GPU to offer seamless performance along with a 4GB DDR4 RAM. While Adreno 530 GPU offers 40 per cent improvement to graphics, computing and power usage compared to the Adreno 430 GPU in the One M9, the 4GB RAM also enables better multi-tasking capability along with lower power usage. HTC 10 scored a remarkable 109,936 on AnTuTu benchmark testing compared to 103,692 scored by Galaxy S7, 81,087 scored by Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge and 79,965 scored by HTC's very own One M9.
