It was an open secret, but finally, we can “put a face” on the new terminal of the Taiwanese HTC, the HTC Desire and HTC Desire 10 Pro Lifestyle. Although there are some common features, the HTC Desire 10 Pro is the most complete and most amazing phone. HTC Desire Lifestyle 10 is directed to the middle segment with more demure specifications.
The leaks were not wrong, and the new member in the catalog of HTC has met virtually all the features expected, as the 5.5-inch HD screen, and we see all the details of the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle.
The Phablet screen size and design
HTC does not waive the visual experience and commitment to a 5.5-inch screen that approaches the field of phablets, but HD resolution reminds us that this is a mid-range device. However, it is a balanced configuration that conforms to a terminal of its features, and Super LCD technology brings a plus point to visibility.
As for the design, HTC remains faithful to the visual language that carries offering us for years, but with a new look that is particularly remarkable for the gold details. The golden-profile around all edges, including lines antenna and rear camera, which gives it a distinctive touch and despite being more modest, has almost no differences with the Pro model. Where did notice this cut in specifications is in the absence of the fingerprint reader on the back, a piece that does bring his older brother.
In addition to the already known model in white, the HTC Desire Lifestyle come in more versions including black, dark blue and light blue, all with golden touches that we mentioned. Another detail of these models is the cord in the box to hold the terminal with more security.
The multimedia experience is still important for HTC
The HTC Desire Lifestyle 10 BoomSound also inherits the tradition, although here the speakers are located on the front, but at the bottom, a provision rather more discreet. They also have the Dolby Audio and come with a dedicated certificate to a higher volume without sacrificing quality amplifiers.
The device also includes a headset with HD sound featuring a frequency of 10 Hz to 40 KHz, but yes, only come in limited edition, which still does not know availability.
Cameras, although not as complete as its big brother “Pro” align with your data sheet. We speak of a BSI sensor for 13 megapixel rear and a 5-megapixel sensor for the front, with features such as Auto selfie, selfie and even makeup Voice in real time.
Current software with an outdated hardware
Both the HTC Desire 10 Pro as the Lifestyle come standard with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and the familiar HTC Sense interface, with features such as custom themes to change the appearance of the system.
It also includes function Boost +, with a touch us promises to clean junk files, freeing up RAM and maximize battery life, which incidentally has 2,700 mAh. It also allows block applications on user request to protect the contents.
On the hardware side, there are quite light and shadow in this model. The HTC Desire Lifestyle 10 may get in two versions depending on memory; the simplest offers 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, while the most complete up to 32 GB and 3 GB of RAM, both compatible with MicroSD memory cards up to 2 TB.
The memory is pretty good for a single terminal, but the processor is where we find that it is certainly the biggest disappointment of this terminal. We were expecting a single chip, but the Snapdragon 400 is a model that already has a few years behind them and even benefits from the trend of the 64 bits that are already in most teams, an unforgivable choice in 2016.
HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, price, and availability
If there is something that HTC finally needs to raise its head is a solid mid-range proposal that appeals to users, and for that they need affordable. The HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle is a simple terminal with an adjusted price could attract many looks, but the first data do not bode well in this regard.
According to HTC UK, the HTC Desire Lifestyle cost 10 249 pounds, which is equivalent to 289 euros or $ 324, a price that would be nice to be the Pro model, but that is excessive for what it offers us the Lifestyle variant especially if we consider the huge range available on the market.
About availability, the HTC Desire Lifestyle 10 is available from today in the UK and other markets, but in Spain will have to wait until the end of the year and there are no clues about his arrival in Latin America.
