Samsung has become increasingly difficult with increasingly fiercer competition. On this occasion, the next stone to be found along the way is the firstborn manufacturer Android: HTC. The Taiwanese smartphone star was pleasantly surprised with many of its aspects, surpassing some things even high-end Samsung. What exceeds 10 to HTC Galaxy S7? Then we explain it.
Before you begin: Why against the Galaxy S7?
Perhaps some wonder why you always compare to the high end with the Galaxy S7 and not another. The answer is simple: because it is a reference to taking into account the time to see how good is a terminal. If Samsung is already a reference mark, although not very fan manufacturer, this year has managed to do even better than last year, so it is normal that compares to any high – end Galaxy S7.
HTC is back with a design worthy of its best times
Okay, maybe the HTC 10 is not too different from the HTC One M9, but it has made the necessary changes without losing their identity. One of the most important measures is the elimination of the black band that appeared on the screen. The HTC 10 has improved in the use of space and, if possible, improved in construction. The result is a terminal with a more elegant design and a reasonable size.
As for the Galaxy S7, it has a design very similar to Galaxy S6 with some aesthetic changes as the slight curvature of the sides of the back style Note 5 and reducing the protrusion of the chamber. I think it’s a good sign that Samsung has not made a drastic change in design. Now everyone is a matter of deciding whether you prefer the layout of the HTC Galaxy 10 or S7.
A lighter software to facilitate support
HTC Sense is in a beautiful, one of the most valuable layers aesthetically Android, but it suffered from a problem that also had other layers: too much bloatware. HTC has decided on this occasion to make a relatively aggressive cleaning p reinstalled applications and prioritizing Google apps by not installing any performing the same function, such as eliminating the Gallery to let Google Photos.
The end result is a layer of beautiful and very slight customization, which, as HTC said, will facilitate future software upgrades. This measure adds to the decision some time to spend more of its apps p reinstalled Google Play, so if you needed updating, could be done easily from the store without being necessary to release an OTA ago.
As for Touch wiz as we know now, Samsung has not touched its interface much. It has made the effort to remove some p reinstalled applications that do not reputable useful, making it a lighter layer. Still, it has more apps p reinstalled HTC Sense. The decision makers will benefit both the end user, because its performance will be even better.
A camera at the height of the best
Samsung came stomping with a camera that could be the best of 2016 and spared no expense to you when looking for a good characteristic of a winner. The result is a camera with an undeniable quality that incorporated the Dual Pixel technology to improve the quality further. But if last year the LG G4 snatched the crown, this year could be HTC, who will take the title.
HTC, this time, decided to put all the meat on the grill to avoid repeating the disappointment of HTC One M9 hardware level but taking good care of processing the images. He craved HTC recover the error last year to put a laser autofocusing, and has gone well the play, because the quality of the images is very similar to the Galaxy S7, sometimes better, sometimes worse, but always a tiny difference.
stereo speakers for audiophiles
If there is something that is part of the personality of HTC it is the aspect of sound. From the venerable HTC One M7, HTC has placed stereo speakers with BoomSound technology, a name that comes to me or painted. On this occasion, the speaker was at the bottom of the front passes the lower edge where the USB Type-C connector is the end of this second speaker is to reproduce the lowest frequencies videos or video games.
Regarding audio, HTC takes full advantage to other smartphones, including the Galaxy S7, which incorporates a mono speaker only, although quite remarkable quality. The problem with this position is that when the play is easy to cover it with his hand, so it would have been more accurate to put it on the front, though meant to last 2 or 3 millimeters longer.
Here are some points where the HTC 10 wins against the Galaxy S7. It was not easy to take advantage, because the Galaxy S7 is a very positive terminal with which it is tough to compete, but the vast thing about Android is that there will be terminals that are better in some respects. Do you think that the HTC 10 will be a worthy competitor of the Galaxy S7 this year ?.
