Goenka Pvt. Ltd, the official distributor of HTC smartphones in Nepal, has slashed the price of their mid-tier smartphone, the HTC Desire 10 Pro. The price of the phone at the time of launch was Rs 32,490 but now has been slashed to Rs 30,000. That said, what are the things the phone offers for this price tag? Well, let’s take a deeper dive on to the phone and find out for ourselves.
The HTC Desire 10 Pro sports a 5.5 inch Full HD (1080 x 1920) IPS LCD display with a pixel density of 400PPI. The phone with a metal chassis and a glass back weigh in at just 165g. Under the hood, the phone houses a MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 processor backed by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The memory of the phone can be further expanded via a micro-sd card up to 256GB. The phone also supports dual-sim cards but only at the expense of the memory card sot.
The HTC Desire 10 Pro rocks a whopping f/2.2 20MP rear-camera accompanied by a dual-tone LED flash. The phone also has a f/2.2 13MP front-camera for all you social media worthy selfies. And just sitting below the rear camera is a fingerprint scanner embedded into the phone’s back panel. In the software side of things, the Desire 10 Pro runs Sense UI, HTC’s own custom skin, based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. And finally powering this device all up is a 3000mAh non-user removable battery. This, without a doubt, will be enough to get users through a full day of usage on a single charge. And if the battery does run out, there is the inclusion of Fast Battery Charge for a quicker charging time.
The HTC Desire 10 Pro feels quite outdated by today’s standard. The software is also caped out at just Android Marshmallow which is kind of a bummer. That said, the phone still offers a great package in terms of build, RAM and storage capacity, and the camera sensors. This Desire 10 Pro, however, wouldn’t be the first phone we think of when we are on the lookout for one costing around Rs 30,000.
