Specs Showdown- See How HTC Stacks Up Against The iPhone and other Android Big Boys


It Seems HTC finally got it right with the HTC 10 after playing catch up to Apple, Samsung and LG. The device was unveiled yesterday confirming all the previous rumoured specs. It looks like the smartphone maker vastly improved the HTC 10 camera.

According to DxOMark’s tests, it scored an average of 88 putting it on par with Samsung’s Galaxy S7 as the best smartphone camera in the world, which is incredible considering how many issues they had with camera quality for a couple of years now. The device comes with 12MP UltraPixel (1.55┬Ám  pixel size), f/1.8 aperture, 4k video recording, dual tone LED flash and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).

Check out DxOMark’s full analysis of HTC 10’s camera at this link.

So how does the device stack up to the Samsung Galaxy S7, iPhone 6S, Nexus 6P and LG G5?

Note: we are yet to see how HTC 10 performs in real day to day usage
