Does the HTC trump card? Laser Focus assist. Unfortunately HTC not reap every success it deserves, is a little apart, perhaps because they have not been able to do as good advertising as they do Samsung and LG, which does not mean that their devices are bad, in fact usually very good and an outdoor hardly comparable quality by other devices running the Android operating system. The latest news report that HTC 10 will be the first Android device officially support AirPlay.

Android has obviously M, fingerprint sensor on the front button start and HTC BoomSound: an audio system with HTC wants to continue making a difference with rivals.
The biggest question is to test the camera. 12 megapixels with “Ultrapixel 2”, HTC technology in the main camera, which brings pixels of 1.55 micrometers. Ahead, 5MP more traditional In the past HTC disappointed in this aspect, and could be the key element that makes them take off.
