HTC One X10 review

Welcome to the HTC One X10 review. This model is not to be confused with the regular range topping HTC 10! The HTC One X10 is a mid-range phone and has finally got our attention, the reasons www didn’t bother doing a review is that we where confused at the deceptive model name which implied it was a top end model, in really it is a mid ranger.

In terms of construction the HTC One X10 is excellent. Thanks to it’s build quality, being metal and glass it does look like a more expensive HTC phone. As result it is put together as well as any other phone especially the iPhone 7 but no where near the standard set by the Galaxy S8! That said HTC have made the One X10 different from the other brands and mid range phones thanks to the rear end decoration and curved. Overall it looks good and high end especially from it’s lesser known competitors.

In terms of hardware the HTC One X10 packs a 4000mAh battery which by 2017 mobile phone standards is huge! The camera promises lots of features and quality but just class average. Apart form that it is interesting to note the Mediatek CPU rather the the usual Qualcomm which only means it’s a cheaper CPU rather than slower performance. Overall there is nothing to really point out about the One X10 in terms of specifications.

In terms of use the the HTC One X10 is really good. The interface is smooth there aren’t too many time consuming transitions minimal amount of HTC Apps. Speaking of Apps the samples like the 3D car games install worked great, not really speedy when loading but once running works great. It is a typical mid range phone that seems to work as a more expensive one. It would be a great phone if all your into is messaging and social networking.

The conclusion is simple, the HTC One X10 is a really good mid-range mobile phone. That fact that we couldn’t really fault it in the first 5 minutes is a really test. What would you by an HTC One X10 before any other phone? It looks more premium and QHD Screen. Since their other less known brands have increased their prices and they don’t certainly don’t look or feel as good. We could even consider buying one if we had’t already bought the Motorola G5 Plus.
