Less than a week after HTC announced its new flagship, the HTC 10, we got our grubby little paws on one. And here, for your delight and edification, is video of Talk Android’s fearless leader, Justin Herrick, unboxing the latest from HTC.
Among the companies putting their own touches on Android, HTC has always provided the most favorable experience. It’s not like stock Android but it’s way better than TouchWiz from Samsung and LG UX 5.0. The HTC 10 ships with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow sitting behind Sense 8.0, and this time HTC’s software overlay is lighter than ever before. While the visuals are still in place, the company pulled back on the number of self-made apps in favor of allowing Google’s to work.
Hit the break to see what HTC has pre-installed on the unlocked edition of the HTC 10.
It’s just a couple of days ago that the HTC 10 launched to a positive reception, boasting a 5.2-inch QHD display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, and a stunning metal unibody.

The HTC 10 launched yesterday, and so far? Well, HTC’s obsession would appear to be paying dividends with its latest flagship. The HTC 10 has matched the Galaxy S7 Edge in the camera rankings, and as usual with HTC, it’s a beauty to behold. As is often the case with flagship launches, HTC has released a slew of official promo videos showing off the 10’s features and we have them embedded for you after the break. Read more
Whenever a new smartphone is launched, one of the most important questions you can ask is how good is its camera? The question becomes even more relevant when it comes to HTC, because of its hit and miss record with cameras on previous flagships.
