HTC 10 tester says phone lives up to teasers; long battery life, great sound, runs fast and smooth
The latest leaked information about the HTC 10 comes from someone who claims to be testing the phone. We suggest that you take this story with the proverbial grain of salt. If true, it would appear that HTC fans just might have their hero phone at last. In fact, it could very well be a superhero phone. Before we proceed, again, use your cynical eye while reading this.

According to this anonymous HTC 10 tester, the handset's speakers are impressive. There is a dual speaker system in the front with one speaker on top and the other on the bottom of the handset. How good are they? "I have heard sounds in songs that I've never heard before," says the tester. Battery life? How about 17-hours off the charger with five to six hours of screen time. And the near stock Sense 8.0 skin helps the HTC 10 run fast and smooth. HTC has already said that the device would be the smoothest and fastest Android phone.

Besides the tweets sent out by the anonymous HTC 10 tester, we have screenshots of the camera UI that you can look at. Has HTC really delivered this time? We should know more starting at 8am EDT tomorrow morning when the online unveiling begins.

Thanks for the tip!

They never went anywhere, people just stopped buying them. Hopefully the 10 will finally be an HTC with a camera and battery that beats Samsung. We'll see. Competition is boring now, as it seems like it's just Samsung and Apple taking the whole pie.

I trully believe in HTC, they were and always will be my fave company not only because I liked their devices from the past but because I always used to find their devices more handsome than others and their UI was just perfect for my taste. I still use my sexy HTC ONE S. Ace them HTC!

I'm glad it's got a "normal" sized screen, might be my next phone at this rate...

I'm kinda sad about the bottom speaker. I was really hoping for it to be in the front.

I just wish they did two things in a different way. Place the home button a bit higher, and didn't include those thick chamfered edges.

I believe in HTC software wise... But their hardware designs need the blood of Jesus and a phenomenon.

Now create another article based on another twitter nonsense. Ridiculous. No wonder why this website can never be considered as a serious standard in consumer technology journalism.

They're satisfying their reader's appetite for any and all updates on high interest phones, some credible and some not so much. They gave a disclaimer at the beginning of the article so there's no need to be nasty.

I believe he is referring to the blasting of info. Just look at the page, the HTC sneezes and its on the page. Sure it gets, hits, sure I clicked on it to read. But it is very annoying.

It just you. People who get annoyed easilly and take thing too seriously.

HTC 10's tag line should be- Come back is Real!!

I still think the phone is not attractive enough but HTC nails their software. Samsung and LG should take notes.

I wish they had called this the HTC EVO 10. Their first EVO 4G was one of the phones that started the Android revolution.
