Comparing the Huawei Nova and the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, the HTC is more massive, a lot thicker and noticeably heavier slightly. Out of the box is the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle itself with its accessories. You get manual paperwork, a micro USB, a charger for charging and little pair of headphones.
The HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle is not the same as HTC 10. This is a more budget-friendly version phone which is a bit more cheaper. It’s a mid-range phone. The HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle comes with a Snapdragon 400, 4 gigabytes of RAM and a massive 5.5 inch display. Unfortunately with the 5.5 inch display you only get 720p display quality. This means you’re not getting as many pixels you can do for other phones in the league like LG. The display is protected with Gorilla Glass so if you drop it you’ve got no dramas. The dissapointing thing is that you don’t get supplied with high res earphones with the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle.
Its front-facing camera is a 5 megapixel with the rear having 13 megapixel. Unfortunately it’s not 4k camera but the pitch quality that you do get is okay. You only get 720p screen so you’re not going to see the best results on the phone. The camera is quite protruded from the top of the phone so it doesn’t sit flat and you might bit of trying to get a protective case for the back to try and protect that lens.
HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle comes in multiple colors ranging from Stone Black, Polar White, Royal Blue and Valentine Lux. The phone looks good and a bit plasticky.
Sound effects obviously depends on what you’re listening to.
The brightness just let it down, unfortunately it just needs another percent brightness and it will be spot-on for watching films. For the audio quality, the external speakers are really good and loud. You don’t get a baseline but you can sort or filter the music and the the effects when watching a trailer or a film or something like that.
As for the games it seems to run the games pretty well. It just takes a little time to load them. If are doing updates for the Play Store it just seems to take not twice as long but it felt that way there’s definitely a lag behind it which it’s a bit unfortunate. But again this is a mid-range phone it’s not a flagship and it’s no drama if you’re in no rush.
Comparing it with the rest of the mid-range phones across the exact same amount of money it doesn’t seem to be there. You may opt for the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle because you’re getting a bigger screen and you’re getting a better audio. But you have to sacrifice other things like a quicker processor and camera quality.
