HTC One X10

HTC One X10 is here with massive battery

HTC launched their new mid-tier smartphone in Russia. The HTC One X10 offers decent specifications, along with a hefty price tag. The device starts retailing by the end of April and priced at $355 or RUB 19,990.

With design perspective, there is nothing new, this looks similar to the Indian variant of Redmi Note 4, with slightly dis-located flash module, even the plastic antenna bands are similar. However, in terms of pricing, this device is priced almost double. The disappointment doesn’t stop here, for further understanding lets look at the tech specifications.

The HTC One X10 offers a standard 5.5 inch IPS LCD 1080p panel, topped of with a 2.5D curved glass carved out of Corning Gorilla. Under the hood, Mediatek Helio P10 powers it all. The 3 GB RAM helps for multi tasking and mediocre gaming. HTC One X10 offers 32 GB on-board storage, along with external SD support up to 2 TB (for your info no 2 TB capacity SD card).

On the optics department, the device is equipped with 16 MP main camera with photo features like PDAF and autofocus, the front facing selfie camera offers wide angle selfies. Though it is a 16 MP sensor, the device lacks to record 4k footage and support maximum of 1080 p at 30fps. The selfie camera just supports 720p video footage. Due to non availability of OIS or EIS, the footages will be jittery.

The divide runs on 4000 mAh Li-Ion (non user replaceable) battery, along fast charging. In terms of operating system, the device runs on forked version of Android Nougat. The device offers few software tweaks like “Boost + system” which automatically manages the storage and other resources. The device also offers “Boost+” feature, which helps to adjust the resolution according to resource requirements.

All these features are nothing but gimmick. Even these applications themselves consume a lot of resource and storage. Though the device offers interesting features, it fails to attract customers due to its hefty price tag. One can easily get a flagship device like OnePlus 3, for this amount.
