HTC-Desire-10-Pro

HTC has a lot riding on the new Desire 10 Pro smartphone, in an attempt to regain a foothold in the Android smartphone space. This smartphone has those typical HTC design lines and is priced at Rs26,490.

HTC Desire 10 Pro Design and Display:

The Desire 10 Pro has a metal body, which feels great when you hold it, also offers a good amount of grip. There are gold accents running along the edges, camera bump and back that give this phone a very striking look. HTC has fitted the Desire 10 Pro with a quality display. The 5.5-inch IPS panel produces good levels of brightness with good colors and contrast. The full-HD resolution ensures a decently high pixel count so there’s no visible pixelation of icons and text.

There’s Gorilla Glass for added protection too. The display is tuned for a neutral tone by default but you can adjust the color temperature in the Settings app if needed. The space above the display is a bit taller than the portion below, which makes the phone a bit longer than it should be. The capacitive buttons on the chin of the phone are backlit and responsive.

The power and volume buttons are on the right side. On the left side, we have hybrid Sim slot that can accommodate two Nano sim cards or Nano Sim and Micro SD card up to 2TB. The headphone socket on the top, Micro USB and speaker grill on the bottom. There’s also a fingerprint sensor around the back, which is quick at authentication and can double up as a button for snapping a selfie.

HTC Desire 10 Pro Software and Performance:

Powering this smartphone is a MediaTek Helio P10 SoC and 4GB RAM. The Desire 10 Pro offers 64GB of internal storage. The phone’s 3,000mAh battery can deliver a day’s backup at most on modest use. The phone runs Android 6.0 with the latest Sense UI over it. You can arrange the apps in app drawer according to the alphabetical order or the most recent ones, apply new themes.

HTC Desire 10 Pro Camera and Battery Life:

For the Desire 10 Pro, HTC has used a 20MP BSI sensor at the back with an aperture lens, a dual-LED flash, and laser auto-focus. It can shoot 1080p videos at 30fps. On the front, there is a 13MP camera with an aperture lens which can also shoot 1080p videos and comes with Auto-HDR mode. The camera app offers a clean UI. You get modes like panorama, pro or manual mode, video, hyper lapse, selfie photo, selfie panorama and selfie video. The front 16-megapixel sensor delivers some good performance as well but struggles in low-light conditions.

The battery on the Desire 10 Pro is of 3000 mAh capacity. The built-in power saving mode does help extract a little more battery out of the device, however, it does compromise on the performance and CPU speed.

Pros and Cons of HTC Desire 10 Pro:

Pros:

1) Striking looks and good build quality

2) Lean Android skin

3) Cameras perform well

4) Display is sharp and vivid

Cons:

1) No Wi-Fi ac, NFC or USB Type-C

The competitor of HTC Desire 10 Pro:

It faces tough competition from devices like OnePlus 3T, Moto Z Play, and Nubia Z11.

Conclusion:

The HTC Desire 10 Pro is an overall really good smartphone. It Delivers a steady performance, has a good looking display, a funky UI, and a very user-friendly design. The SoC is not the best when you consider other Android smartphones around this segment that pack faster ones, and this phone also misses out on some conveniences like a Type-C USB connector, NFC.
