HTC unveils its new flagship, "10" HTC has revealed its newest smartphone called simply the 10. It's the successor to years of One lineup that ended in One M9 last year.
HTC 10 clearly carries the same design principles from previous One models. It looks like one continuous piece of metal, just like its predecessors. Of course the innards are what matter, and HTC has covered certainly all the basics.

Specs include octa-core Snapdragon 820, 3 (32GB model) or 4 gigs of RAM (65 GB model), a 5.2 inch Quad HD display, and 12 and 5 megapixel cameras. The camera in the back, hailed already as one of the best around, has larger than conventional pixels which qualify it as an UltraPixel camera.

The phone features a 3000 milliamp hour battery, Type-C USB, and stereo speakers. Unfortunately the so called Boom Sound speakers are no longer front-facing. HTC 10 will be available in four colors (Carbon Grey, Glacier Silver, Topaz Gold, and Camellia Red) on April 12 for $699.

I'm dumbfounded how the phones only change with slight nuances. Essentially each one is a duplicate of the previous and yet the pricetag sticks at 700 dollars.

Sorry but these were worth that way back when the FIRST cell with 3GB RAM, Snapdragon 800/810 and 2K screens was brought to market but this crap is just a regurgitation of everything already out there.

I'd say these "state of the art" phones pushing typical specs listed above, even with the new Snapdragon 820, are worth MAYBE 449.00 retail and unlocked. Maybe even 400

HTC is already discounting the phone by $100, so should be at 450 in no time.
