It is common that we find presentations of products whose hardware is not the last. Is not already that I do not find the latest high end processor, then the chip largely determines the category in which engage is a mobile phone during its release, but earlier versions that you might call old, despite being still functional.
It is not the first to do something like but yes the last, talk about HTC. The manufacturer based in Taiwan has finally become international your HTC Bolt, now known as HTC Evo 10, and arrival to other distant to the North American markets It has made us see its price. Compared with the 10 HTC, it is interesting to try to get in the mind of the ideologists of this new smartphone to know what wanted.
The HTC Evo 10 resists itself only
We like what we see in the interior and exterior of the HTC Evo 10, it is not there where the problem lies. It could perhaps have chosen another processor, as the Snapdragon 810 already proved to be a mistake of Qualcomm’s last season, corrected brilliantly pretty much with the 820 Snapdragon how his version more advanced, the 821.
Few things we missed in the 10 Evo. Or your screen QHD Super LCD 3 5.5 inch, nor their combination of 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. Although everything is said, these figures are more typical at this stage of a middle range than of a terminal that is intended to be marketed around $600 it already costs in the North American market. There is no official price, but no doubt will increase as soon as take ground in Europe and the dollar to turn euros.
If camera is not a problem, with 16 Megapixel camera on the back and front 8-megapixel. Neither nor its 3,200 mAh fast charge battery, Neither your IP57 protection against dust and water. And even that has dispensed with the headphone jack as other terminals did before it, used to replace the current port USB C with an adapter for connecting headphones.
But it does not support a comparison with 10 HTC
The problem is that in our own catalog of HTC there is a terminal called 10 HTC that, currently, already it can be purchased for less than 550 euros. So, what is what it purports to HTC? Because on paper, the Snapdragon 810 is closer in performance of the Snapdragon 652, the penultimate example of the super middle of Qualcomm, which Snapdragon 820 range.
If we establish this comparison between the processors, the HTC Evo 10 would automatically be framed among the super medium ranges, and here would be well above the price of its competition. And already, if you’re going to build a super middle range, why not choose the Snapdragon 653, the latest version of the chip of the Americans.
The problem, as we said, is that the HTC Evo 10 makes no sense Maybe not you can try to supplement a terminal like the 10 HTC with a model of lower power and higher price. Not if you intend to harvest some for sale, of course. 10 HTC Lifestyle was presented to be Squire to 10 HTC already. The choice of the sidekick, Robin of the 10 HTC, was already covered. If you think, seeing them together.

And now, view the characteristics of one and other, someone can explain is the point of this release of the HTC Evo 10 with a processor of 2015 that already showed its disappointing performance? Because a terminal like the 10 Evo makes sense if you arrive alone, but do so with a late hardware. But to compete against a brother more powerful and cheap, not.
