The HTC Bolt Goes Worldwide as the HTC 10 evo
Talkin' bout an evolution.
The HTC Bolt, which released on the U.S. Sprint network earlier this month, is now releasing worldwide as the HTC 10 evo. Other than the name, the two phones are identical other than the HTC 10 evo being unlocked and usable on multiple carriers.
Unfortunately, the Bolt/10 evo are behind the latest Android flagship phones, particular the Google Pixel. The two phones both have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, QuickCharge capabilities, and 3 GB of RAM. The HTC Bolt/10 evo are metal unibody construction phones and sport a 5.5-inch, quad-HD screen.
Unfortunately, the phone is a bit costly for what you get. The HTC Bolt retails for aaround $600 so the HTC 10 evo can be expected to be in a similar price range. Additionally, the HTC Bolt/10 evo is trying the iPhone 7 thing and sports no 3.5mm headphone jack. Instead you must use the USB Type-C port with either an adapter or USB Type-C capable headphones.
The release of the HTC 10 evo puts another decent phone with a decent price on the market. However, it doesn't do anything new or groundbreaking. If you happen to get one on sale though, there are much worse devices you could go with.
