New HTC 10 commercial praises the phone's front-facing camera
Expected to start shipping in the US this week, the HTC 10 is one of this year's most powerful Android handsets (thanks to a Snapdragon 820 processor and 4 GB of RAM), replacing the One M9 as HTC's brand new flagship smartphone.

One of the unique features that the HTC 10 is bringing is its 5MP front-facing camera - the world's first front camera to have Optical Image Stabilization, which helps it deliver better photos (especially in low light scenarios). To make sure that people know about the front-facing shooter of the new device, HTC today released a short commercial that's full of selfies taken with the HTC 10. In fact, According to HTC, the entire commercial - embedded below - is shot on the new smartphone.

When we reviewed the HTC 10, we found that its front-facing camera is indeed pretty good, performing well in all lighting conditions. The handset's 12 MP rear camera is also very good - definitely an improvement over the cameras of HTC's older flagships.

Right now, you can pre-order the HTC 10 directly from HTC (unlocked), or from Verizon Wireless. Starting later this month, T-Mobile and Sprint will offer the phone as well.

The back camera should be the same as the front camera.

Can' wait until I get my hands on this phone. Even though this phone may not come close to the S7edge's level, I still think this is a great phone by 2016's standard. Pre-ordered mine last month.

the indoor shots are noisy as hell, and you dont even have to zoom in to see it clearly

Update fixed about all the bad side the camera had in fact. Its better in all lightning condition than the S7 and better than G5 in most case as well. S7 beat it sometime but rarely in very dark conditions indoor and have a much faster focus than HTC 10.

lol what I garnered from this advertisement: "it is ultra selfish, buy it" The random montage of photos could have been competently taken by any random phone. They didn't explain what their coined marketing moniker meant and how it would differentiate itself from usual front cameras. It's kind of apparent why HTC does so abysmally when compared some of the competition

Cuz that's what guys want (guys are the only ones buying this phone)....a selfie phone. HTC has never been good at marketing.
