The Helio X10 has nothing to do with that. And proper optimization is the key to make even weak processors a powerful one. Sony and HTC are both known for good software optimization. You can see how the Helio X10 performs with the M5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txkYWaFGSGU
Since this phone and the M5 almost have similar specs, this one should perform just as good as the M5 if not better or worse.

george-kh, 04 May 2016what the hell dude. Samsung is offering the j7(2016) for 310$ with Android OS, v5.1 (Lollipop)... moreGalaxy J7 with lollipop and 2gb RAM,there are several versions already released with a 3gb RAM and full HD,and don't compare that Helio x10 with exynos or Snapdragon,do you even know about smartphones like Nexus 5x,upcoming moto g4...
And Htc always been weak in camera .last year's 1.5 GB Samsung J7 performed way better than 3gb version of Htc desire 828...
So,don't comment crap,if you haven't used many smartphones..
Why HTC always offers a decent phone with high price? Better choose Redmi Note 3 with Snapdragon inside.

Samsung is offering the j7(2016) for 310$ with Android OS, v5.1 (Lollipop), 16 GB, 2 GB RAM and a 5.5 inch 720 x 1280 pixels screen while htc is offering the 830 for 310$ with 5.5-inch 1080p display(not a 720p), 3 GB of RAM(not 2 GB), 32 GB of expandable storage (not 16 GB) and Android 6(not 5.1 ). So what you'r saying is nonsense.
They have yet to release the One X9 in more markets, and this?
This Desire 830 has slightly lower price but also less battery, downclocked CPU speed, on-screen buttons, perhaps no RAW support, but better front camera (Ultrapixel FTW).
But it is a nice upgrade over Desire 828 what with 3GB of RAM and 32 GB storage.
Amar Qayuum, 03 May 2016Its about the price doesn't match the specThe MediaTek Helio X10 is a powerful chip. It powered many mid range devices from last year like the Xperia M5. 3GB of RAM is also a nice touch from them, and not to mention the BoomSound stereo speakers as well. I bet you can't name any phone that offers as good as this phone at the same price range
launch in US at $299 and with HTC 10 being the second best android phone this year (so far), i bet it could help their sales a bit.
Really,with Helio x10 it's pricing is $310.. Who will buy this crap when moto g4,Galaxy J7 (16),Mi5,Nexus 5x available at less or same price..
Htc good bye...
Name Please, 03 May 2016I don't know why you guys are complaining about this new phone from HTC. I actually like this oneYeah - me too
Good work HTC
Price will come down in time
Dno, 03 May 2016design-wise, it looked better than HTC 10. love the design, especially the accent colors.No way..HTC 10 looks amazing..Its flawless design-wise!!this phone doesnt even come anywhere near it..
"Audio lovers" could not care less about those tiny speakers, audio lovers always use headphones when listening to music on a phone!
design-wise, it looked better than HTC 10.
love the design, especially the accent colors.
They should use bigger battery atleast 3200 mah with qhd to make better in vr.replace the chipset with Helio x20 or sd652.camera should use Sony sensor.price should be 300$below
Bad bad! HTC sinking and sinking! Cmon HTC be serious and put reasonable price on that device with old cpu.
it's a kind of htc X9 with lower cpu/gpu and lower price.ok,but htc X9 is the best midrange in market clearly. X9 has the best midrange SoC + screen + battery + camera in back and front and 4K recording + boomsound + metal body and .... with 400euro.
I hope that htc releases D830 world wide with lower price about 250-280$ .
