The HTC 10 is equipped with a 5.2-inch Quad HD SuperLCD5 display with a pixel density of 546ppi, and is powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB RAM. Its 32GB internal storage is expandable via Micro SD card all the way up to 200GB. HTC claims the built-in non-removable 3,000mAh cell can handle up to two days of use before needing to be recharged. When it does eventually deplete, you’ll be able to charge it back up again really quickly thanks to USB Type-C and Quick-Charge 3.0 support.

Android Oreo now officially rolling out to unlocked HTC 10 in the US

Oreo’s rollout so far has been pretty pathetic, Essentially no one has fully rolled out the functionality to its users, but HTC is one of a few that have done anything at all. Now, the company is bringing Oreo to its previous flagship, the HTC 10.

Pre-order the 6GB/128GB HTC U11 tonight at 12am ET for $729

The HTC U11 was released back in May with many praising it for its Pixel-level performance and its highly reflective glass backing. The only issue with it, for those who prefer copious amounts of storage, is that the handset only came with 64GB of built-in memory. Although there is a microSD card slot available to expand this, HTC will soon offer a 128GB U11 with 6GB of RAM for just $80 more than the base model…

PSA: Sprint’s HTC 10 is now receiving Android 7.0 Nougat over-the-air

The unlocked HTC 10 got Android Nougat last year, but it goes without saying the carrier variants tend to take a bit longer. In Sprint’s case, it was about 3 months longer. But for those with this specific device, the wait for the latest flavor of Google’s mobile OS is finally coming to an end…

You could win a free HTC device in one of the company’s forthcoming weekly giveaways

HTC may have had a rough couple of years, but that doesn’t mean that its products have all been bad. Its latest HTC 10, in fact, is a pretty solid smartphone — and they do deserve some credit for giving Google‘s own Pixel a much-appreciated sturdiness after all.

If you hate the Taiwanese company for some reason, I honestly don’t know why you are here. But if you fancy some of its gear, you may be in luck…

Earlier this year, HTC confirmed that its HTC 10, HTC One A9, and HTC One M9 devices would all be updated to Android Nougat. Now that the latest version of Android has officially been released, however, HTC has offered up some more details on its own rollout, including timing, albeit vague, for each device.

After two years of average flagships, HTC finally delivered for 2016 with the HTC 10. We praised the device in our review, as did most publications and buyers, but that hasn’t quite done the trick. HTC has apparently had a bit of trouble selling the 10 as shown by T-Mobile. Just two months after the device went on sale, T-Mobile had already dropped the device from its smartphone offerings.

The best Android phones you can buy [July 2016]

It’s already July, and with an ever-increasing number of notable Android OEMs reaching maturity, we’ve seen more new handsets than usual launch this summer. We had the Huawei Mate 8 and Honor 5X at CES in January, followed later by Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 edge and others around the time of Mobile World Congress, and last month saw the new OnePlus 3 and Moto Z. But which ones are the best buys?…

According to a report by TrendForce analyst Avril Wu, the total production volume of HTC’s flagship HTC 10 will hover around 1 million units, with an overall yearly production volume of just 13 million units. That figure is significantly less than last year’s yearly production mark of 18 million units, even with the assistance of an upcoming Google Nexus branded HTC smartphone for the second half of 2016.

The new HTC 10 is definitely one of the better releases in the company’s history. However at $699 and up retail price, not everyone can clear the space in their budget to get the sharp-bezeled unibody wonderphone. To that end, HTC is currently giving a few users the chance to win a free unit and the rules are simple.

Last week, Spigen sent over a few cases for the recently released HTC 10. That was great news for me, as I’ve been extremely hesitant to use the device as my daily driver without some sort of protection.

If the HTC 10 wasn’t so pretty and well designed it wouldn’t matter, but it’s a beautiful smartphone that I wish to keep in tip-top shape. As such, I was more than happy to take Spigen’s offerings for a test drive. Take a look at our hands-on video to see the cases in action. expand full story

HTC Q1 2016 earnings reveal 64% drop in revenue

HTC has published its financial results for Q1 2016 and things continue to look bleak for the once-giant of the smartphone world. The company made a loss of NT $4.8 billion ($148 million) on revenues of NT $14.8 billion ($455 million). Despite that, the company is predicting a strong 2016, thanks to the recent launch of its flagship smartphone and the market-leading Vive VR headset.

Earlier this week we brought you news that Google engineer, Benson Leung suggested quite strongly that the LG G5 and HTC 10 (and any other device using Quick-Charge technology and a Type-C connector) was technically not compliant with USB Type-C specification. Because of the way Quick-Charge 2.0 and 3.0 delivers the charge, it restricts some of USB Type-C’s functions by taking up the data lines.

While we’re yet to hear any kind of response from LG or HTC, Qualcomm has (sort of) answered the criticism by half suggesting it’s up to manufacturers to choose how they implement the technology, and that there have been no complaints so far from customers.

At the time, he set out to review as many Type C chargers and adapters available on Amazon to separate the true Type C compliant accessories from the non-compliant, helping buyers avoid purchasing products that might damage their new Nexus phone (or Pixel C).

Following his most recent review (via AP), the Google engineer has pointed to a previous Type C spec explainer to suggest that both the HTC 10 and LG G5 are out of spec.

HTC 10 Review

As an “Apple guy” the HTC 10 has been the one smartphone that I’ve immediately identified with in the Android ecosystem. That’s not to say that there haven’t been other Android devices that I’ve enjoyed or wanted to use, but I’ve always connected with HTC.

That probably has something to do with the fact that the HTC Wizard was the first “smart” phone I’ve ever owned. That phone ran the now defunct Windows Mobile and featured a resistive touch screen. Needless to say, I’ve long been a fan of the Taiwanese company, and its passion and desire to put out well-designed products continues to resonate with me in 2016.

So it’s with great empathy and concern that HTC has been struggling as of late. To be honest, the HTC 10 feels like the company’s make or break — the major fork in the road, if you will.

It’s very possible that the HTC 10 will be the release that paves a path to one of two destinations. Fortunately, I can report that this is a phone that’s good enough to pave that path in the right direction. It’s a phone that lives up to its billing, and in many ways exceeds expectations. It’s definitely not perfect, but it’s the best-looking and most complete HTC offering that we’ve seen thus far. expand full story

The HTC 10 ships with native AirPlay audio streaming support, a first for an Android device

By means of third-party utilities, Android has featured the ability to stream to AirPlay devices like the Apple TV for some time now, but no Android device has ever shipped with native AirPlay support in tow. That all changes with the launch of the HTC 10, the first device to ship with officially licensed support for Apple’s popular AirPlay protocol.

T-Mobile unboxing takes the HTC 10 up 10,000 feet in the air

We’ve had the HTC 10 all weekend, and wanted to share with you our first hands-on look. Of all of the flagship devices that we’ve seen in 2016, the HTC 10 is easily the prettiest.

HTC’s next flagship is coming, and the Taiwanese company hasn’t been holding back the teasers. Instead, it’s ramping up its social media campaign to hype the #powerof10, first showing off the shiny chamfered edges, then telling us how much it was obsessing over the design. We all assumed this meant the HTC One M10 was coming. But if a tweet from the oft-reliable leakster Evan Blass is accurate, HTC might be about to ditch the ‘One’ moniker as well as the ‘M’ prefix on the model number.

HTC teases One M10 with #Powerof10 video boasting sleepless nights of smartphone perfecting

HTC has never been shy about how serious it takes its smartphone design. When the HTC One M7 launched a few years ago, it was easily the best-looking and best-made Android smartphone available. Since then, it’s spent its time slowly improving on that original form factor. Some might say too slowly. While the M9 featured the same dedication to craftsmanship, its spec list wasn’t anywhere near close to competing with last year’s flagships. This year, that is rumored to be changing.
