HTC looks lớn have a promising handset on its hands. There"s loads of great tech packed into the surprisingly premium polycarbonate body, và as long as the price is kept reasonable it"s a phone worth getting excited about.



Release date và price

The điện thoại htc Desire 10 Pro will be available khổng lồ order from November – which means you"ve got some time khổng lồ work out if it"s a phone you may want – but we"ve been told it won"t be coming to the UK.


As for how much the Desire 10 Pro will set you back, we"re still waiting to hear final confirmation from HTC, & this will dictate the potential success of the handset.


What we vị know is that the Pro will be more expensive than the Desire 10 Lifestyle – which may mean the Pro could be costlier than we"d like, as the Lifestyle is also marketed in the mid-range.

If the Taiwanese firm can keep the price down to the levels of the OnePlus 3 then the Desire 10 Pro will be an attractive, disruptive presence in the market – but any higher and it could struggle against a number of cheaper, but just as feature-packed, rivals.



Design và display

The htc Desire 10 Pro hasn"t inherited the premium metal unibody kiến thiết of the smartphone htc 10, and we feel like we need to get that out of the way ASAP – but not because it"s necessarily a bad thing, as the Desire 10 Pro is still a good-looking phone.


At the heart of the 10 Pro is a metal frame, ensuring that it feels sturdy in the hand, but the main toàn thân material is soft-touch polycarbonate, which delivers a pleasing level of grip and comfort.

Measuring 156.5 x 76 x 7.86mm, the Desire 10 Pro isn"t as tall or as wide as some handsets sporting a 5.5-inch display, but it"s still a noticeable presence in the palm, and requires two-handed operation for some tasks. It"s not overly heavy though, tipping the scales at 165g.

The phone is available in four colors: Stone Black, Royal xanh (dark blue), Valentine Lux (light blue) and Polar White, with all four options sporting gold trim for a more premium finish – although on the lighter hues this looks a little excessive.



On the back, below the sizable camera sensor, you"ll find a fingerprint scanner that provides a secure, easy way to unlock your handset – although we don"t lượt thích the fact that it can"t be reached when the device is lying screen-side-up on our desk.

Still, this is the first time smartphone htc has put a digit reader on a Desire phone, so the fact that it"s there at all is a good thing.

And for all those audio fans out there still reeling from the news that hãng apple has removed the tai nghe jack on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the good news is that smartphone htc has kept it for the Desire 10 Pro.

The company has even applied its BoomSound enhancement technology to the jack, giving you better audio when listening via headphones, although you won"t get those enhancements when using the internal speakers – for that you"ll need the Pro"s sibling, the điện thoại htc Desire 10 Lifestyle.

The điện thoại htc Desire 10 Pro features a 5.5-inch 1080p display, which is bright and clear – ensuring videos & games look great. Colors aren"t quite as vibrant as we"ve seen on Samsung"s Super AMOLED panels, but you"re unlikely lớn have any issues day-to-day.


What"s it lượt thích to use?

HTC has packed plenty of power nguồn into the Desire 10 Pro, with an octa-core chip at its heart capably supported by either 3GB or 4GB of RAM, depending on whether you opt for the 32GB or 64GB model.

It"s unlikely that you"ll see both models available in your market, but don"t be downhearted if you "only" get the 3GB/32GB variant, as it will still pack a punch. There"s a microSD slot too, allowing you to lớn build on the internal space with cards up to 2TB in size.

Even the lower-spec version of the Desire 10 Pro should be able to handle the latest games & applications from the Play Store, while Google"s apk Marshmallow operating system runs smoothly.

The Desire 10 Pro features the same Sense interface overlay as the htc 10, allowing you khổng lồ customize your trang chủ screens with various themes & stickers for a truly personal touch.


Camera

The Desire 10 Pro has the best camera htc has ever put on a Desire handset – to lớn be precise, it"s got the same camera as the smartphone htc One M9.

That means you"re looking at a 20MP snapper with an f/2.2 aperture, HDR and two-tone flash. In one respect the 10 Pro even betters the M9"s camera, as it adds tia laze autofocus. This should translate into bright, clear and in-focus shots, và strong performance in low light – although the camera is unlikely to match the snapper on the smartphone htc 10.

During our brief hands-on time with the Desire 10 Pro the camera was quick, and results serviceable – although the device we were using wasn"t running final software, so we can expect some fine-tuning between now & when the phone launches in October.


HTC has also redesigned its Pro Mode on the camera – an nâng cấp not even the smartphone htc 10 has at the moment – with a trio of mặc định settings including Macro and Sports, helping you tweak the various settings in an easier lớn understand way.

This is great for those still trying to get their heads around white balance, shutter speed & exposure values.

Around the front there"s a 13MP camera, which boasts an HDR mode và a selfie panorama mode, allowing you lớn get even more buddies into your shots – that"s a far higher megapixel count than the front snapper on the 5MP htc 10.
