Using the device is a breeze with its 4GB RAM and Mediatek MT6755 Helio P10 processor. The amount of RAM the phone has will be helpful for multitasking, but it is geared more to moderate users. Playing games with this phone should not be a problem, but expect a drop in frame rates for graphic intensive games. Storage issues? No worries, as this smartphone is packed with 64GB of internal storage, and you can expand that with a microSD card for up to 256GB.

For all those loyal HTC users who have been thinking to replacing their ageing HTC Desire smartphones, the time is certainly right to upgrade as the new Desire 10 Pro comes with a slew of updated features and enhancements. The images produced by the 20MP camera are impressive for a mid-range smartphone, and the design of the device is clean and simple. We hope that HTC rolls out Android 7.0 update soon.

HTC needs to set its priorities right. While I was happy with how good the smartphone looks, its performance is as good as a budget device. Selling such a phone in the territory of the OnePlus 3 is a bad idea.

The HTC Desire 10 Pro is a good device but at Rs. 26,470, its pricing is on the higher side, which makes us think twice before recommending it. The SoC is not the best when you consider other Android smartphones around this segment that pack faster ones, and this phone also misses out on some conveniences like a Type-C USB connector, NFC, and Wi-Fi 802.11ac.

For the final call, the Desire 10 Pro is quite good if we look at it in terms of overall performance. However, with the price tag of Rs 26,490, it is just not up with the likes of other devices in that price range. HTC smartphones have delivered some impressive piece of creativity especially in terms of the design in the past, however, the price tag has been a let down in most of them. Same is the case with the Desire 10 Pro. While the device doesn’t fail miserably in any department, the price will be a deal breaker for most of the buyers.

The HTC Desire 10 Pro is a decent smartphone. In fact, it’s one of the better smartphones that HTC has produced recently. But consider it only if the OnePlus 3, Asus Zenfone 3 or the Moto Z Play aren’t within your reach.

You cannot clearly expect a slayer performance from the HTC Desire 10 Pro. It doesn’t, however, displease at any point. The camera is good enough for your social media usage, and the manual mode makes you feel that you have a little more control. However, If clicking great landscape pictures is what you utilize the phone mostly for, you may want to spend some extra bucks and buy the Oneplus 3, instead, which has a better rear camera. With the Desire Pro, you will be clicking an endless number selfies, and appreciate the performance in all lighting conditions. Fast Charging and a long lasting battery are great supplements. The device has a sleek design and the golden accent lines on the Polar White model add a sense of panache.

What it doesn’t offer, unfortunately, is the performance chops. Don’t be surprised if you notice dropped frames during heavy games like Asphalt and Modern Combat 5. As a daily driver for work and some mild entertainment, the HTC Desire 10 Pro doesn’t fall short in light of its competitors when it comes to watching movies or browsing the web.

The HTC Desire 10 Pro is an overall really good smartphone. It has an appealing design, decent performance and the camera experience is great. But it faces tough competition from devices like OnePlus 3T, Moto Z Play and Nubia Z11, which offer immensely better specifications at the same price.

Launching with Android Marshmallow with HTC Sense, the HTC Desire 10 Pro offers the same sort of software features as you'll find on the HTC 10, with freestyle themes and a range of launch gestures. That means a fairly uncluttered version of Android, free from a lot of the bloat that you'll find on mid-range devices from other quarters. Although we've not tested the handset to a great degree, we'd expect the day-to-day performance to be good. Importantly, the Desire 10 Pro is a handset that looks different and distinctive and we like that. We're still awaiting pricing, which will be crucial, and the availability, which HTC is saying will be determined later in November.

HTC looks to have a promising handset on its hands. There's loads of great tech packed into the surprisingly premium polycarbonate body, and as long as the price is kept reasonable it's a phone worth getting excited about.

The intense rivalry drives manufacturers to produce more superior phones to ensure they maintain an edge over their contenders and in turn, prices are drastically reduced to appeal more users. Conversely, consumers are the ultimate beneficiaries and this seems to be HTC’s goal with the rolling out of the HTC Desire 10 Pro. Being on a budget no longer translates to inferiority and consumers are definitely getting a bang for the buck. The Desire 10 Pro is a mid-range smartphone with specs scoring way over the average. At first glance, the phone is largely matte plastic-built with its edges metal trimmed. The smartphone rests comfortably in the palms when gripped. The dimensions of the Desire 10 Pro measure at 156.5 x 76 x 7.86 mm and it weighs 165g. It is obvious that much effort has been put into producing high quality cameras as it boasts a 20MP main camera as well as 13MP selfie camera. The 20MP main camera is more than capable of capturing shots under low-light conditions as it is packed with an f/2.2 aperture, dual-LED flash and laser autofocus. Meanwhile, the 13MP front-facing camera can be used with HTC's new Selfie Panorama mode to capture a super-wide 150-degree shot. Another feature of the Desire 10 Pro is its fingerprint scanner which allows gestures to be easily customized for unlocking purposes and ID recognition, thus improving security and convenience.
HTC’s UI is equally interesting as the HTC Freestyle Layout allows users the flexibility to be creative and create an interface definitive of users. The Desire 10 Pro’s display is 5.5-inch with a resolution of 1920 x 1080-pixel (400ppi). Text and images appear sharp and clear on its display. The display is also protected with Corning Gorilla Glass, thus making the Desire 10 Pro more durable. Performance-wise, it is powered by the latest MediaTek Helio P10, Octa-core, 64-bit processor with more than enough, 4GB of RAM. The HTC Desire 10 pro also has SD card support of up to a whopping 2TB expandable memory, something that is rarely seen on other smartphones. However, we’d imagine that an actual 2GB memory card would cost too much for a phone like this. Built with a dual-sim mode, users can use two SIM cards at once on this phone. Connectivity is supported by WiFi, A-GPS and Bluetooth. Another feature of the Desire 10 Pro is its Hi-Res audio certification which significantly boosts audio quality when listening to music over the speakers and through headphones. The colour variants available are stone black, polar white, royal blue and valentine lux. In all, the Desire 10 Pro will stay as a smartphone to desire. The Desire 10 Pro is the perfect choice for a mid range smartphone. It ticks all the boxes for a good device and will put most of its competition in a similar price range to shame.

70.67%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
