HTC 10 and The Android Market Competition

The HTC 10 has just been released and on this post we will see how is the competition in 2016 in the high-end Android phone market segment


If you are looking for a high-end Android phone in 2016, you have probably heard of the HTC 10, which is the latest release by this Taiwanese manufacturer. The latest top-notch model by HTC is facing a lot of competition, as the number of models and brands on its market segment is getting broader and stronger.

HTC 10 Overview

The HTC 10 is in my opinion, the greatest HTC release since the HTC One M9. And between those two releases, which has a period slightly above one year, things have changed. The mobile market as one of the fastest changing ones, with brands adding a lot of new models every quarter, and each time, faster, and often cheaper. It’s not sure whether HTC is doing the right marketing strategy, choosing to release less models and investing a lot in the HTC 10 success, but it is indeed a nice Android phone.

One of key features that attract me on this phone are its construction and design. To my personal taste HTC smartphones have some of the best design among all manufacturers, and this model is no exception. It has an all-metal unibody available in elegantly named colors as carbon gray, topaz gold and glacier silver.

The battery life of the HTC 10 is fairly good with its capacity of 3000 mAh. How long the battery will last is however a question of how one uses it, but this HTC model has a more efficient battery life than one of its rivals, the LG G5.

Is the HTC 10 a Good Smartphone?

This is the flagship model of the year by HTC and a must have for every fan of the brand. However, before buying this model, you should look how is the competition on the market of high-end smartphones.

Some smartphones running Android to consider, with similar specs are: the Samsung S7, the Sony Z5, the Huawei P9 and the LG G5.
