HTC One M10 looks quite similar to the devices which released before it. The obvious difference is the presence of chamfered edges in the phone’s aluminum chassis. Other than that, it feels and also looks a lot like the HTC One M9 which in turn, looked similar to the HTC One M8. That being said, the device is well-built and looks quite premium.
Considering the rise of highly competitive brands like OnePlus and Huawei in the UK, it is very difficult to see where HTC fits in, at the moment. The device includes a physical home button, similar to Samsung. It works as a fingerprint scanner as well.
The scanner has the ability to read and respond in a matter of 0.2 seconds, which according to HTC, is the world’s fastest. People, who prefer a fingerprint scanner located on the rear panel, will be disappointed.
The device is available in Carbon Grey, Silver and Gold color schemes. HTC One M10 makes use of Boom Sound, like its predecessors. It has been engineered differently this time and the name has been changed to HTC Boom Sound Hi-Fi Edition.
HTC has finally joined the likes of LG, Samsung and Google by upgrading from a Full-HD to a QHD display panel. The Super LCD 5 display in the HTC One M10 has a QHD resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. It has a pixel density of 564ppi and remains protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. HTC One M10 packs a punch when it comes to performance.
