Online shops and network providers have begun shipping out orders for the successor to the well-received HTC One M9.

The HTC 10 is now officially available in Germany and other select parts of Europe for a starting price of just under 700 Euros. Service providers like Telekom and Vodafone are already offering the smartphone in Carbon Gray while others like O2 have Topaz Gold options. Amazon, Media Markt, Otto, Saturn, and other major retailers are offering the smartphone in both aforementioned colors with a third Glacier Silver option.

As widely reported, the HTC 10 should prove to be an exciting launch for HTC. DxOMark has already called the 12 MP rear camera with its 1.55-micron pixels, f/1.8 aperture, 28 mm focal length, laser autofocus, and OIS an all-around excellent camera. In fact, the company says it rivals the Galaxy S7 Edge, which is currently one of the best smartphone cameras available. The HTC 10 is also one of the first smartphones to support Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 technology for faster charging.

Accessories include the new semi-transparent and flexible "Ice View" case that allows for camera, messaging, and music control without needing to open the cover. The accessory is available for 40 Euros.

There is pressure on the HTC 10 to do well in the saturated smartphone market. While the One M9 and One M8 predecessors did well with press, they were ultimately overshadowed by Apple, Samsung, Huawei, and others who have deeper marketing pockets.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
