HTC 10 Evo is yet another phone that dumps the headphone jack

This is the smartphone the HTC 10 should have been

This is a phone built to compete at the highest level and it wants to give stiff competition to the iPhone 7 and the Galaxy S7.

The HTC 10 Evo runs on Android Nougat out of the box, but with HTC’s own Sense UI layered on top. The 5.5in screen is wrapped in a metal body and Gorilla Glass 5. It’s waterproof upto 1 metre and dust resistant.

The Evo has followed Apple’s most controversial recent move and dumped the headphone port.

You’re stuck with HTC’s own noise-cancelling USB-C buds. And there isn’t an adaptor in the box for using your own cans.

The phone has a 16MP camera on the rear and 8MP camera on the front. The HTC 10 Evo features Qualcomm Quick Charge technology, so you can charge your phone quickly. There’s split-screen view, quicker multitasking and new security settings, among other features.

It’s available in Cast Iron and Pearl Gold colors for ₹48,990 on the HTC e-store.
