About HTC 10 Every element of HTC 10 has been designed, refined and perfected. From the bold new chamfered contour to its stunning dual-textured finish and quality construction.
Audio: HTC 10 sets a new gold standard in sound quality with its brand new BoomSound Hi-Fi edition speakers, Personal Audio Profile and Hi-Res audio earphones.
Power: This is something everyone is going to love. Every part of HTC 10 has been optimized from the ground up to run more efficiently. Giving you up to 2 days* of use. It also stays cooler while charging faster than ever – up to 50% in just 30 minutes – enough for a day on the go.
Camera: With HTC 10 we've delivered what we believe to be the best smartphone camera available on the market today. With the world's first optically stabilized, larger aperture f/1.8 lenses on both the front and rear cameras, new larger sensors, 12 million of our new generation UltraPixels (1.55um per pixel), faster laser autofocus powering the main camera and a wide angle lens and screen flash on the on the front UltraSelfieTM camera, this smartphone delivers brilliantly sharp, low light and high-resolution photos whether behind or in front of the lens.
With the camera designed to launch in as little as 0.6 seconds, and a 2nd generation laser auto focus that gives you focused shots faster, it's quick enough to even work in burst mode. All the settings are also conveniently located at your fingertips with Pro Mode still offering advanced options for more experienced photographers, including RAW format functionality.
Themes and Stickers: Complete freedom and control: One of the greatest things about Android is how it empowers you. HTC 10 magnifies the level of control you have and lets you easily personalize your phone in ways you've never thought possible. HTC 10 is yours. By reducing the number of duplicative and preloaded apps and bloatware, and integrating the best of both HTC and Google, we have created a more streamlined phone that enables you to decide what you want on your handset.
Your smartphone should be as unique as you are and the HTC 10 is the only smartphone that gives you full creative control. Create your own theme or select one from the thousands in our library that come with their own icons, background and sounds.
