HTC 10

Read full HTC 10 review

It might not be a perfect 10, but it's mightily close

Key features

  • 5.2-inch quad-HD display
  • Snapdragon 820 CPU, 4GB RAM
  • microSD slot, 32GB internal storage, BoomSound audio

With the HTC 10, the Taiwanese company is well and truly back. After the disappointing One M9 and One A9, the HTC 10 is a stunning phone that not only looks fantastic with a bold design, but it also performs like a champion.

The Snapdragon 820 CPU and 4GB takes care of all the intensive tasks, while the quad-HD 5.2-inch display is crisp, sharp and super bright. HTC has done a great job at ensuring Android isn't ruined by bloatware by removing a load of duplicate apps. It has some nifty new addition too, like a clever way of locking out access to certain apps.

While HTC claims you'll get multiples days of battery life we only managed one, but it did easily make it from morning until bedtime. One of the biggest issues with the One M9 was its poor camera, and it has mostly been sorted here. The 12MP UltraPixel sensor takes great and very detailed photos, while the selfie shooter is the best on the market. It does sometimes overexpose shots, but it's still a good camera.
