HTC DESIRE 10 LIFESTYLE
The HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle is the lower version of the Desire 10 Pro. It features a 720p 5.5-inch display that has a pixel density of 267ppi. Well, we can’t see it as a great display but it isn’t bad as well. Anyways, the device is powered by a Snapdragon 400 chipset. Funny thing is that Snapdragon has already declared that this is wearables’ chipset. Coming to the camera, we have a 13MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and BSI Sensor. Also, there is a 5MP front-facing camera with f/2.8 aperture.
As far as the memory options are concerned, there are two variants of the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle – one with 2GB RAM & 16GB storage and the other with 3GB RAM & 32GB storage. Users can expand the memory up to 2TB via SD card which is a good thing. Under the hood, the Desire 10 Lifestyle has a 2,700 mAh battery and it runs Android 6.0 OS with HTC Sense over it.
HTC DESIRE 10 PRO
HTC Desire 10 Pro is the big brother of the Desire 10 Lifestyle. It too has a 5.5-inch screen but unlike the lower variant, this is a 1080p screen with pixel density of 400ppi. The phone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 chipset with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. There is a 20MP main camera with f/2.2 aperture and Laser AF. Also, on the front, there is a 13MP selfie shooter with the same aperture. The HTC Desire 10 Pro packs a 3,000 mAh battery inside and it too runs Android Marshmallow over HTC Sense.
Well, there is no USB Type-C port and fast charging. Now, we have the capacitive keys and not the on screen buttons. So, now the customizations are endless as you can add icons or widgets wherever you want to. Both the phones are available in Stone Black, Polar White, Royal Blue, and Valentina Flux color options. Only the Desire 10 Lifestyle will come to market today as the Desire 10 Pro will make its way to market next month. Coming to the most important stuff- the Pricing. Well, the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle will be priced at $250 and the price of the Desire 10 Pro isn’t yet known. Well, we have better devices than the Desire 10 Lifestyle under $200 so it will be interesting to see if the company will lower the price or not. Else, we all know what will happen. 😀
