HTC 10 features in detail.
HTC set a very high standard for audio quality with the original HTC One M7 and even today few match or beat the audio experience on offer. The HTC 10 then has a tough job on its hands, but with BoomSound 2.0 the experience will be as good if not better.
The HTC 10 has 100% certified 24-bit Hi-Res audio to make music sound exactly the way the artists intended with less compression and more detail. In-box Hi-Res Audio Certified earphones combine to bring you a leading smartphone acoustic system.
A Personal Audio Profile Creator lets you tune the in-box Hi-Res earphones, or any others, to suit the way you prefer to hear your music.
Combined with next level HTC BoomSound Hi-Fi edition speakers, you’ll experience clearer vocals, booming bass and crisp treble – a true symphony of sound. The new speakers are powered by two dedicated amps and the same separated tweeter and woofer design as the leading acoustic systems around the world.
The HTC 10 is the first Android smartphone to support Airplay Audio. It allows you instant access to the Airplay ecosystem and lets you wirelessly stream audio from your phone to any compatible device or speakers. It works seamlessly with HTC Connect to give you more choice of where to listen to your favourite tracks. And all it takes is to swipe three fingers up on your screen to get started.
Capture your ever-changing world in great detail with the world’s first dual Optical Image Stabilisation so, no matter which camera you use, you will get bright, sharp, blur-free photos you will love.
You won’t miss a moment either, with a 0.6-second fast launch and second generation laser autofocus. It has been awarded one of the highest camera quality scores of any smartphone - a DxOMark Mobile Score of 88, a new high in the benchmark for smartphone image quality.
The cameras have an f1.8 aperture and an UltraPixel sensor to capture up to 136% more light so images come out clear and bright in almost any setting.
Up front, is a 5MP camera with natural screen flash, a wide angle lens and OIS.
The 12MP main camera takes 4K video and is capable of slow motion shots too.
Point and shoot and you get great images, but if you want to take control you can capture images in RAW format and then edit them in a popular image editing programmes post capture.
The HTC 10 brings you the most responsive HTC experience yet. Apps launch and run in a flash, the screen instantly reacts to your every touch and a lightning fast unlock fingerprint scanner keeps your phone secure while letting you in instantly. It boasts the latest Android 6 software, HTC Sense and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 40% faster graphics and 4GB of RAM.
The HTC 10 has been engineered from the ground up to run faster and use less RAM so you can use more apps and multitask without being slowed down. It comes with fewer pre-loaded applications, only the really useful ones, so there’s more storage space for all your photos, videos, games and more.
Running Android means that you have access to Google services from Drive, to maps, to YouTube to the Play Store. Sync emails, calendars, contacts and more via the WiFi or 4G connections.
The HTC 10 is more than a mobile phone. Calls and text messages are core to the device with 3 built-in microphones for crystal clear audio and useful features such as a pocket mode and quiet ring on pickup to either increase or decrease the audio volumes.
With a powerful processor and lightning-fast unlock fingerprint scanner, you can access your phone in a flash and be safe in the knowledge that your data is safe. At just 0.2 seconds response time, you’ll be doing all the things you love faster than ever.

HTC 10 boasts up to 2 days’ battery life, thanks to PowerBotics 2.0, which improves battery life by 30%, so you can do more of what you love without stopping to recharge.

Whilst many of us use the same phones, we make them our own through little software tweaks, be that ringtones, background images, setting changes and even accessories.
The HTC 10 allows you to personalise your phone in many ways. HTC Themes gives you access to thousands of professional-looking themes online from your favourite movies to artists and more. Each one has its own icons, background, sounds and more. You can even mix and match individual elements from different themes to create one that’s unique as you are.
The HTC 10 gives you the space to change and personalise your phone just the way you want. With the Freestyle Layout, you can change your home screen in any way you like. There are no grids and no limits, so you can put icons, widgets and shortcuts anywhere you like. Layer them, overlap them, group them – you choose. You can even link stickers to shortcuts so you can quickly launch apps without cluttering your screen with icons. Space is yours. Use it your way.
Not only can you actively personalise your HTC 10, but it learns from you and responds to your life. HTC Sense Home will change the apps on your home screen to reflect where you are. That means business related apps when you’re at work and entertainment and gaming apps when you’re at home – all right where you need them most.
Bold contours, carved out of solid metal, bring a smartphone design that is appealing to many.
The metal flows seamlessly into a 5.2” Super LCD 5 glass front and has been engineered to exacting standards to handle everyday knocks, bumps and scratches. And with a beautiful, ultra-thin 3mm bezel, a continuous, chiselled edge that lines the unibody and the finest attention paid to every curve and surface, the HTC 10 captures the eye and forms part of your hand.
Design goes beyond just the look, with a USB Type-C power and data connector built into the phone you have the most up-to-date technology, meaning faster data transfer speeds and no wrong way to connect the power cable. The connector is reversible.
The HTC 10 is the smartphone that can keep up with everything you do. It has been engineered from the inside out to stay charged for longer – up to 2 days of normal use. More than enough time to catch up on your favourite shows, browse the web, stream music, watch videos or play games.
Every piece of hardware and software has been selected and tuned to use less power. It is all part of an innovative new system called PowerBotics, which improves battery life by 30%.
The all new HTC 10 is a powerful smartphone that sets a standard for others to work towards.
