HTC 10 evo smartphone

The Desire 10 Pro wasn’t the only smartphone that HTC launched at its Delhi event. In addition, the company launched the HTC 10 evo, the price of which will be revealed by mid-December of this year. However, going by the specifications, it’s quite likely that HTC 10 evo will be priced higher than the HTC Desire 10 Pro.
We played around with the smartphone for a little while, and here are our initial impressions.

HTC 10 evo has an all-metallic unibody design. An IP57 rating means that the smartphone is water, dust and splash resistant. The front panel has a 5.5-inch display with a layer of curved Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top.
While the nanoSIM tray is located on the left, the volume rocker and power button are on the right. Above the display lie a notification LED, an 8MP selfie-camera, an earpiece and a proximity sensor.
As for the rear, it’s where the 16MP primary camera with dual LED flash is located. The bottom edge has a speaker and a USB Type-C port. However, there’s no 3.5mm audio jack on the HTC 10 evo.Overall, we were quite impressed with the look and feel of the HTC 10 evo. It resembles the company’s current flagship smartphone – HTC 10 quite a lot, and that’s a good thing. At about 8.09mm in thickness and weighing around 174g, it’s manageable with one hand.

HTC 10 evo has a 5.5-inch Quad HD display of 1440×2560 pixel resolution. In the limited we used it, we found the display to be fairly good. Viewing angles are good and so is the colour reproduction. Due to the high pixel density, everything from images to text appears impressively crisp.

Hardware and software
HTC 10 evo is powered by a 2.0GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The storage is expandable via microSD cards of up to 2TB in size. The smartphone has a 3,200mAh battery, which the company claims provides a talktime of about 23 hours while on 3G/4G. However, this is something we’ll only be able to test out once we review the smartphone.
In our limited usage of the HTC 10 evo, we did not experience any heating issues or lag with the device. Apps open up quickly and multi-tasking works really good too.

HTC 10 evo comes with a 16MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and dual LED flash. The camera can record 4K video with high resolution audio. As for the selfie camera, the phone has an 8MP snapper with a BSI sensor. The front camera can record Full HD video.
