The HTC Desire 10 Pro Brings High-End Performance at a Mid-Range Price

For the design of the HTC Desire 10 Pro, it features a matte plastic finish that has a metal trim located around the edges and the camera lens. While it does look flashier than many, it does not promote much of an accent as compare to previous Desire iterations. While still on those comparisons, it is also not as nearly as elegant as the all-metal HTC 10.

One interesting additions to the Desire 10 Pro is that it now has a fingerprint sensor located at the back. While the technology on smartphones is no longer new, this marks a first for the entire Desire product line. This could also mean that HTC is now getting serious in targeting the low- to mid-range markets while being able to deliver higher-than-average performance levels, the likes of which Alcatel, Huawei, OnePlus, Motorola, and Asus can offer.

Another new item to take note on the latest iteration for the HTC Desire is it now has a 20-megapixel rear shooter that has an f/2.2 aperture. Accompanying that is a dual-LED flash and laser auto-focusing system. As for the front camera, it makes use of a 13-megapixel imaging sensor which makes for better-than-average selfies.

On the inside, the brains behind the handset is that of a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor which is mated to 4GB of RAM. You will be able to take advantage of up to 64GB of internal storage right off the bat, and that can even be expanded even further for up to 2TB of additional storage with the use of a microSD card. It also runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow from the start. It has a rather decent battery life as it makes use of a 3,000mAh pack, which is unfortunately non-removable.

The HTC Desire 10 Pro is a solid choice for many who wants high-end specs while not having to burn a large hole inside their wallets in the process. However, it does have steep competition to fight for as it is found in a relatively affordable sector.
