Planning to buy an 'iPhone 7' and 'iPhone 7 Plus'? Don't rush to empty your pockets for Cupertino-based products as there are some iPhone alternatives that are pocket-friendly and with features that are better than the overpriced Apple smartphones. Head-to-head comparison of HTC 10 and iPhone proves something good about android phones.

Let's admit the fact that Apple has done an excellent job when it comes to branding. And mainstream reviews are sometimes overrated that they overlooked features of other phones that are somehow much better than iPhones. HTC 10 is one of the most powerful android smartphones of 2016 that belongs to the dichotomy of not having blockbuster sales. However, the following features showed how HTC 10 bested iPhone 7 based on the specs comparison done by News Atlas:

Wider Screen  

It is unknown to almost everyone that HTC 10 display screen has a size of 5.2" while iPhone has only 4.7". That makes HTC 10 22 percent bigger than iPhone 7.

Screen Resolution

HTC 10 features a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 at 564 ppi compared to iPhone 7 1334 x 750 at 326 ppi. Among the two, HTC 10 featured a Quality HD display and that makes 73 percent sharper than iPhone's screen resolution.

Longer Battery Life

iPhone 7 battery capacity is 1,960 mAh whereas HTC 10 has 3,000 mAh capacity rate - 53 percent bigger. According to the comparison done by Phone Arena, iPhone battery life lasts for 14 hours while HTC 10 in 24 hours both using 3G. Given that HTC 10 has larger screen resolution, it is just appropriate to have higher battery capacity rate.

Fast Charging

Following the trend of the recent android phones, HTC 10 is one of the phones that is capable for fast charging.

Memory (RAM)

Surprisingly, HTC 10 has 1GB RAM advantage over iPhone 7 3GB. There are so much things that can be done in 1GB extra memory anyway.


The microSD slot in HTC 10 makes a user expand the phone storage to compliment with the phones internal memory. In the case of iPhone 7, there are three variants to choose from - 32GB, 128GB and 256GB.


HTC 10 and Apple iPhone 7 has similar entry level price for $649. However, discounts are given to customers who purchased the HTC 10 straight from HTC US online store.
