Mobile Phone | The new HTC 10 has a 5.2in Super LCD screen. That's slightly bigger than the One M9 - although the phone isn't really any bigger due to a better screen-to-body ratio - and sits between the S7 and G5 in size.

The HTC 10 has a resolution Quad HD (1440x2560), too it's has a pixel density of 565ppi.

Matching the LG G5, which has slick performance, the HTC 10 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor which is a popular choice for 2016 already. This is backed up with a healthy 4GB of RAM and we've not noticed any problems since getting a review sample.

The HTC 10 is not waterproof so it's bad news if that's a design upgrade you we're hoping for. It's a shame but it appears HTC has focused on improving other areas such as the camera and audio instead. If you really want or need waterproofing, then look to the Samsung Galaxy S7 or Sony Xperia Z5.

The HTC 10 is available in a range of colours: Carbon Grey, Topaz Gold, Glacier Silver and Camellia Red

Mobile Phone | Picks from the critics:

HTC 10
With the new HTC 10 there's a lot to like  including a number of hardware upgrades across screen, audio and camera, plus a Nexus-like stock Android experience. However, we're not totally sold on the design and it's tough at the top these days. While the HTC 10 is a solidly good phone and a respectible upgrade for M9 owners, it doesn't blow the competition out of the water. The features which appeal the most are more niche than mass market. sayd pcadvisor

HTC 10
The HTC 10 is a phone that promised so much but only partly delivers. As you can see above, I can't really criticise it too much as it's hit the marks that a top smartphone should: loads of power, upgraded battery, improved camera and changed design.

The One M8 had the same impressive ability to be fondled, but it combined it with better sound output and innovative pictures - it was one of the best phones ever made.

The HTC 10 doesn't do anything wrong, and if you bought it you'd want for very little throughout your time with it, as it's very capable indeed and has all the excellent design DNA slathered through from HTC.

Ultimately, HTC 10 is a phone that's technically very able but doesn't offer a massive wow factor - and for the high-end price it commands, it really should. sayd techradar
