HTC 10 and LG G5 aren’t USB Type-C compliant, says Google engineer [update]

Benson Leung is someone that we've talked about before. He's the Google engineer that rounded up all of the USB Type-C cables and put them through a series of tests to see if they're up to snuff.

And he calls out two big names for being non-compliant, the HTC 10 and LG G5.

HTC 10 Camera Review: Teething pains for UltraPixel 2

With camera performance one of the key decision points for new smartphone buyers, the HTC 10 can't afford to screw up when it comes to photography.

Snapdragon 652 HTC 10 Lifestyle the only choice for some markets

HTC might have just unveiled a champ, but not everyone in the world will be able to enjoy it. The HTC 10 definitely has a lot to flaunt but in some markets it will be a bit more modest.
