HTC 10 is against rivals high-end

After some recent models that gradually have been moving away from the leading positions in high-end, HTC today unveiled its new HTC 10. With him have wanted to wipe the slate clean trying not to forget some of its identity, and that we see it in a different but similar name, and the same goes for your design.

By changing HTC has changed to date in which it presents its flagships, preferring to wait to take weeks from Samsung and LG releases so that no new mobile obscures yours. But what else is there in this high-end HTC? Are you sufficiently equipped to be able to cope with guarantees rivals?

Design renewed following the path of A9

With the HTC One A9 Taiwanese and showed their intentions to travel around the design of its devices, and after three years of clones to its range of flagships also it is time. Of course, changing the design while maintaining the quality of its materials, and betting once again for the metal outer casing.

What has fallen by the wayside are that pesky logo that used to put on the front earning him a few centimeters and its characteristic front speakers. This has been going from 5 to 5.2 inches while maintaining virtually the same height, however gaining a few millimeters wide and reducing its thickness compared to HTC One M9

Still, these efforts seem not to have been enough to stand out against some of its competitors. If you look at the table, other models with 5.2-inch screens like the Huawei Lumia 950 P9 or get a more restrained size.

Neither it seems to have gotten recorded many or the thickness or weight of your device, and the same thing happened when add some extras increasingly standardized as resistance to water or dust protection. At least they have not forgotten to include a fingerprint sensor and a port USB Type-C which itself has been lacking in other major players of the year as the Galaxy S7.

Specifications that we know by heart

If anything highlights the new generation of mobile maximum range this year is that their internal specifications are being very similar, especially in their configuration processor, RAM and battery. As always, there are exceptions such as Huawei or Exynos Galaxy S7 models, but in most others there are no surprises.

And watch out, because I do not say it is not good nor bad, just that everyone is playing it safe with the Snapdragon 820, 4 GB of RAM and batteries 3000 mAh. Both these configurations that fail to reach that appear below are repeated, and out of the norm as Samsung or Huawei may seem an unnecessary risk.

But where yes it is having differences is on the screen, and this is doubly important. On the one hand drive a more capable screen can help the mobile stand out from the competition, but also is something that can turn against the direct impact on autonomy. In this regard HTC is not what you thought, and decided staking everything on the image quality.

Therefore, while manufacturers such as Huawei, Sony, Apple and Xiaomi prefer to settle more than enough Full HD on their screens to save battery, Taiwanese join Samsung, LG or Microsoft when it comes to take the rest with resolutions QHD 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, commending the benefits of the processor that does not affect too much autonomy.

But autonomy does not depend solely on these characteristics. It will be when we analyze it we see how far your panel enhances the experience Super LCD5, andwhat changes may be added at the software level. It is then that we can make a real comparison based on experience and not just in the specification table.

A camera with which he looks to guess right

At last the time has come to him right idea HTC and not go crazy with the number of megapixels betting on sensors with larger pixels. But despite that we can not say that the photographic quality of their latest flagships have fallen short, so many eyes will be this year HTC camera 10.

And at least on paper it seems that the Taiwanese have taken note of their mistakes. Megapixel equal to Apple, Samsung and Huawei, still preferring their UltraPixel, and offer an opening to match the best that only Samsung has improved. Nor they have forgotten the 4K video recording, not bad for the back camera.

But where is the surprise is on the front, as the HTC 10 medal wants to be the first mobile optical stabilization it. So you can get the attention of lovers selfies with a front camera designed for them, which in addition also have a maximum aperture of f / 1.8.
