The HTC 10 is an Android smartphone manufactured and marketed by HTC.[3][4] It was announced on April 12, 2016.[5]


In 2015, HTC released the HTC One M9 smartphone, which was praised for its design, but criticized for being too similar to its predecessor, the HTC One (M8).[6] To address the shortcomings of the M9, HTC released another new phone that year with a new design and hardware: the HTC One A9. The design of the HTC 10 is something of a mix of the M9 and the A9.[7]



The HTC 10 features an aluminum body with a unibody design. The dual front-facing audio speakers from previous HTC smartphones (such as the HTC One M9) have been removed. The phone still has 2 speakers; however, one is on the top bezel, while the other is on the bottom edge of the phone. The HTC 10 also includes a fingerprint sensor under the 5.2-inch 1440x2560 Gorilla Glass 3 screen.[8][9][10]

The internals of the HTC 10 are similar to its contemporary flagships. The HTC 10 includes the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and 4 GB RAM and Adreno 530 graphics card.[11] The HTC 10 also features USB-C and Qualcomm QuickCharge 3.0.[10] The HTC 10 features a dedicated DAC (Digital Audio Converter) provided by Qualcomm.[12]


The HTC 10 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the HTC Sense 8.0 skin.[8] HTC updated unlocked handsets to Android 7.0 Nougat on November 25, 2016.[13] The unlocked HTC 10 received the Android 8.0 Oreo update in early 2018.[14]


The HTC 10 received generally positive reviews. In its review of the phone, CNET gave the device a 4 out of 5, supporting the design of the phone, the "brilliant audio quality", and the customizable user interface, while criticizing the phone's camera and battery life.[15] The Verge gave the device a similar 8.0 out of 10, but viewed some aspects of the phone differently: it considered the device's "reliable battery", sound, software, and "fast performance" to be its strengths, while criticizing the HTC 10's "boring design", camera, and price.[16] On the audio quality front, due to its inclusion of a dedicated DAC, Android Central praised the audio of the HTC 10 when using headphones connected to the headphone jack, saying of the experience, "Spoiler: it sounds good. Damn good"[17]
