The HTC Bolt Vs HTC 10 EVO - Sprint Product Ambassadors


So, searching online you may see a little buzz regarding the HTC Bolt (A Sprint Exclusive) and the HTC 10 EVO (an international release) which both look very similar.  Even looking over the specs, you may find many similarities that could leave you guessing.  Why call one different than the other?  Well, one important thing to remember with cell phones, looks are deceiving and what matters is under the hood.  Here’s why the HTC Bolt is deserving of a name so lighting fast.



I welcome you to look at and and do a line by line comparison. 



Size is within a hundredth of an inch of one another and the body visually looks the same with identical ports. Since many 3rd party case manufacturers seem to market their cases as a dual fit for the Bolt and 10 EVO, I would venture to think the body is the same. This can be good info when hunting down case options.


HTC Bolt Dimensions and Weight

6.06 x 3.04 x .32 in, 6.14 oz

HTC 10 EVO Dimensions and Weight

153.59 x 77.3 x 3.7-8.09 mm, 174 g


On the hardware specifications, most of what you’ll find between the two are identical in terms of CPU, Memory and features.  So that much is identical.  You get the same quality build, camera screen and software features across both models.


You should notice the HTC Bolt does include the HTC BoomSound™ Adaptive Audio Hi-Res earphones whereas the 10 EVO does not.


Is that all, you might ask?  Well, the HTC Bolt truly pulls ahead in the network:

Impressed yet?  Well you should be.  At the time of this writing. “Sprint has started to deploy three-channel carrier aggregation in such markets as Chicago, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, Cleveland and Columbus.” So if you are lurking in one of those areas, I would expect to see some impressive speeds being achieved.
