To our surprise, HTC just unveiled one of the best phones we’ve seen so far this year, from many points of view. Dubbed as HTC 10 evo, the handset was just introduced and man, it looks great. However, it has a couple of minuses which could lead to some potential buyers have second thoughts about it.
Initially, it was believed that this phone is supposed to be the global variant of the recently-introduced HTC Bolt, since the two devices have many resemblance, but hey, life is not always fair.
It’s the chipset that doesn’t make it perfect!
Spec-wise, the HTC 10 evo comes with a pretty big 5.5″ Super LCD 3 display, rocking a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, resulting a density of 534 ppi, according to BGR. Under the hood, it sports the same Snapdragon 810 chip, like the Bolt, clocked at 2.0 GHz, and this is a very weird decision, since this is a relatively old chip.
Moving on, the processor is aided by 3 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 gigs of internal storage, with the possibility of expanding it, thanks to the presence of a microSDXC card slot. As for the camera, it has a 16 MP snapper on the back, with autofocus and optical image stabilization, as well as an 8 MP selfie unit. Finally, the battery has a capacity of 3200 mAh, while the operating system is Google’s latest, Android 7.0 Nougat. Oh, and it’s IP57 certified!
Top-notch audio, but…
Still, one of the biggest attraction points is the audio department, as it features the new HTC BoomSound Adaptive Audio technology, able to adjust audio to “sound levels around you, keeping you in the zone of the music and sound you’re enjoying,” as an official statement says. But don’t get to excited about plugging your high-end headphones in it and enjoying all your favorite tunes, as the HTC 10 evo doesn’t have a 3.5mm jack. We trusted you, HTC…
