HTC just released the Desire 10 Pro with the aim to bring the flagship style to the mid-range market. The phone is one of the most powerful that HTC has ever made. It has features that HTC has borrowed from both the HTC 10 and the HTC One M9. The HTC has a solid build, with great looks and good specs under the hood. However, its success depends on its price which is still unknown. With high-resolution rear and front cameras, elegant design, metallic body, and other top-tier features like an integrated fingerprint sensor and 4GB storage space. All of which add up to make it our best Desire phone yet. In this review, we delve more deeply to see what this phone has to offer.
Like the HTC 10, the HTC Desire 10 Pro has the same premium metal unibody design. This gives the phone a ravishing, smooth, strong and well-built look that many premium phones have. The frame is made of metal, but the main body is made of soft polycarbonate. This dual build gives the phone a sturdy feel while still being comfortable and soft to hold.
This is the first Desire phone to have a fingerprint scanner too. It is located just below the primary camera on the back of the phone. HTC has also incorporated its trademark BoomSound enhancement technology to its audio jack which will give you a better listening experience. However, the same enhancement is not present on the speakers.
The screen itself is a 5.5 inch IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 1080x1920 which gives it a pixel density of 400 ppi. It’s not the best in the market, but is good enough for it not to make a difference to the untrained eye. The display is bright and has a lot of clarity, with good realistic colours, so gameplay and videos will look great on it.
HTC has very bountifully equipped the Desire 10 Pro with an Octa-core MediaTek processor. You will get either a 3GB or 4GB RAM depending on whether you order the 32GB or the 64GB model. You can boost the memory through the dedicated memory slot up to 2TB. 2 TB of memory is huge and how the company will let you manage all that space is still not known.
The phone runs on Android Marshmallow and has the company's Sense UI over it. HTC has also added its FreeStyle layout which promises to free you from the on-screen grid and gives you the freedom to add stickers, widgets and images anywhere you want, and however you want it. You can even overlap different stickers to make your screen as personal as possible.
HTC has put the best camera it has manufactured till date on the Desire 10 PRO, that is, the camera on the One M9. The primary camera is a 20 MP snapper with laser autofocus and a BSI Sensor. It also comes with a f/2.2 aperture, HDR and a two-tone flash. The camera should produce pictures like the One M9, which is good vibrant colours and strong low-light performance. HTC has also included a PRO mode on the camera with different settings for Sports and Macro. You can also tweak other settings to give you the best shot.
The front is a 13 MP camera with an HDR mode and panorama mode. Other quirky features are the voice selfie and Live Make-up, all to give you the perfect selfie.
The phone has a 3000 mAh battery. The battery will give you over 8 hours of Wi-Fi use and 11 hours of video playback. There are two power savings mode and fast charging to give you more time with the device and less time charging.
