HTC continuously look to develop fun smartphones that are more than just a communicator. HTC Desire handsets go beyond being good value for money; they tick extra boxes to make you feel good about your phone.

Having a slick, slick modern design is one aspect of a great smartphone. Another is providing features that make using the phone fun.

With thousands of themes, enhanced audio and neat camera tricks, the Desire 10 Lifestyle wants you to play!


Developing striking designs for many years, HTC has been considered one of the most stylish Android device manufacturers.

The Desire 10 Lifestyle features smooth chamfered edges and a very subtly curved back. Each edge is accentuated with a clean gold contour that also surrounds buttons, ports and the main camera.

Available in four colours, each version of the Desire 10 Lifestyle caters for a personal style.

And how's this for a bit of retro cool? Each Desire 10 Lifestyle has a lanyard attachment on the base, with a free lanyard included in the box. Good news for droppers...


HTC Themes are an incredible way to impart some of your own personality on your phone. There are thousands of unique, professionally styled themes to choose from, each instantly changing the look and feel of your phone.

These go beyond simple font changes and background images though. Some extras include custom sounds and icon packs so the entire interface of the phone is enhanced.

Others subvert the usual 4x4 Android grid, creating a fun home screen space that strays from the normal bland rows of icons.


HTC's BoomSound technology has been engineered over several hardware generations; it's more than just a gimmicky name.

The Hi-Fi edition speakers each have their own dedicated amplifier and can clearly separate sound into highs and lows for an audio experience unmatched by other smartphones.

Dolby Audio processing is integrated into the Desire 10 Lifestyle's software to enhance what you hear in every aspect of the phone. From playing back local files to streaming through Spotify, Netflix or Youtube, Dolby is constantly working.

You also have a dynamic equaliser to modify the output. You can have this automatically optimising all audio, or tweak it yourself for specific situations.

The Desire 10 Lifestyle is also Hi-Res Audio certified to deliver 24-bit sound. If you want to experience the next level of consumer audio, pick up a pair of Hi-Res audio certified headphones for richer, louder sound across twice the dynamic frequency range (10Hz - 40kHz).


Looking to take great pictures? HTC have you covered.

Both the main 13MP camera and front 5MP selfie camera feature Backside Illumination (BSI) technology to help out in low light situations.

You can record full HD video from either aspect, plus there's a whole host of pre-capture filters and post-capture editing tools to play with.
