HTC Connect update adds AirPlay support to older devices

Earlier this week when the HTC 10 smartphone broke cover packing support for Apple AirPlay, there were certainly some users of older HTC flagship smartphones that felt a tinge of jealousy. Granted you can find apps on Google Play that add AirPlay support so the jealousy might not have been that strong. Still, it's nice to have support for something you like right out of the box.

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. Unfortunately, that's not been an area where HTC has done especially well in its past few devices, after its aborted attempt at dual-lens cleverness on the One M8, followed by an underwhelming chase for megapixels on the One M9. I've been living with the HTC 10 for more than a week now, and it turns out there's good news and bad.

HTC 10 in Camellia Red will be exclusive to Japan

The HTC 10 was finally unveiled this week, and in an unexpected surprise the phone is shaping up to be a top-tier Android flagship. Along with high-end specs and support for Apple AirPlay, the HTC 10's camera has been ranked as on-par with the recent Galaxy S7 Edge from Samsung. When the phone was announced, it was showcased in three colors: Carbon Gray, Glacier Silver, and Topaz Gold — but it turns out there's a fourth option, Camellia Red, that will be exclusive to Japan.

HTC 10 in the US available only in 32GB, has a discount code

The HTC 10 might be off to a good start, but already HTC is revealing its warts, slowly and piecemeal. Jeff Gordon, a.k.a. urbanstrata on Twitter and HTC senior manager for global communications, is replying to eager inquiries on the social network and, along the way, is revealing some curious and disappointing tidbits about the flagship smartphone, like, for example, its lowly IP53 rating. And perhaps to the dismay of the US market, Gordon reveals that the US won't be getting the 64 GB model at all.

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. The rumored variant of the flagship running on a less powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 turned out to be real and is called, almost ironically, the HTC 10 Lifestyle. But unlike most variants, this one won't actually be a choice, as some markets like India will only have the Lifestyle model available and not the full HTC 10.

The HTC 10 wants to lead us out of Android fragmentation

Android has a fragmentation problem, but HTC believes the new HTC 10 is the first step toward fixing it. The company's new 2016 flagship doesn't go the whole "Nexus" route and abandon HTC Sense altogether, but it does benefit from a more nuanced approach to software add-ons and confusing preloads.

This is the HTC 10: First Impressions

HTC had stopped listening, but it learned its lesson with the new HTC 10. Back in 2013 HTC unveiled the flagship One M7, and was widely praised for its unibody design, purposefully different approach to phone photography, and overall user-experience. In trying to keep up with the ever-present threat of Apple's iPhone and the increasingly polished - and heavily promoted - Samsung Galaxy line, though, HTC lost its way.

It's now under a day before the HTC 10 is revealed, complete with what we expect will be an iconic build and new software to boot. This device will be the second big-name release of the year, coming in right beside the surprise home run in the HTC Vive, a virtual reality headset that runs with Valve's SteamVR. The handset may not have as epic a set of VR tendencies itself, but the details in the release are vital to the image HTC will be projecting from here on out. A video leaked today seems to show the future.
