HTC launched HTC 10 evo, company’s one of the top end model, at a price tag of Rs. 48, 990 in India. It is currently available in only Pearl Gold color from company’s e-store.
The smartphone comes with 5.5-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, and sports a water-resistant aluminium build for premium finish. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. HTC 10 evo comes with split-screen view, unlimited photo storage with Google Photos app, and inbuilt Google Duo video calling app.
The HTC smartphone runs on the dated Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core SoC (up to 2GHz), and packs 3GB of RAM. It comes with 32GB of internal storage and supports expandable storage up to 2TB. The HTC smartphone sports a 16 MP rear camera with 29.3mm wide angle lens, f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, optical image stabilization (OIS), 4K video recording and dual-LED flash. The 8 MP front camera comes with screen flash feature also. The smartphone sports fingerprint scanner below the display with unlocking time of just 0.2 seconds.
The biggest USP of the HTC 10 evo is it sports a USB Type C-enabled ‘dual adaptive’ headphones which ‘adapt’ their output to the best for the listener’s ear structure. This is coupled with HTC BoomSound Adaptive Audio.
HTC 10 evo connectivity options include 4G LTE, NFC, Bluetooth v4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, and a USB Type-C (2.0) port for charging and data transfer. Surprisingly you will not find any 3.5mm audio jack. The HTC 10 Evo comes with a 3200mAh batter. Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 fast charging technology makes charging time lesser than usual time.
At the price Rs 48,990, the HTC 10 evo seems overpriced . The smartphone doesn’t actually offer a radical design and amazing feature. Additionally HTC has moved back steps in processor and opted for an older chipset.
