HTC was one of the big names when it came to Android smartphones, but their last few phones did not really impress that much. HTC recently released their latest flagship Android Smartphone in the HTC 10. The HTC 10 succeeds the HTC One M9 and packs in a lot of great features like an aluminum chassis design, USB-C charging and connectivity, Android 6.0, 5.2-inch 1440 x 2560 pixel Quad HD display, 12 mega-pixel camera, and much more. Under the hood the HTC 10 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 2.2 GHz dual-core CPU and 4GB of RAM. Our friends over at Verizon sent this phone over for us to take a look at and to be honest I am an iPhone user. I have been since the original iPhone. That’s what is going to make this review interesting, an Android phone review from an iPhone user. Can an iPhone user recommend the HTC 10? Are there certain things about the HTC 10 that I like over my iPhone 6s? How does the HTC 10 stack up performance-wise against the HTC 10? We will cover all of that so let’s jump in!
Packaging & What You Get
The HTC 10 we received came directly from Verizon so it is the same thing you would get if you bought the phone online from Verizon or at a Verizon store. The HTC 10 from Verizon comes in a white box that says HTC 10 and Verizon on the front.
Flipping over to the back we have all of our specifications laid out for us. We received the 32GB version of the HTC 10 and currently that is the only capacity available from Verizon. Verizon offers the phone for $648 or $27 a month for 24 months.
Getting everything out of the box we have the HTC 10 smartphone, wall charger, and a USB-C charging cable. Interestingly enough there are no headphones included with the phone.
