A winning combination of gorgeous design and solid specs should attract plenty of people to the HTC 10. It’s one of our favorite phones of 2016, but as always, no phone is without bugs and glitches. After reviewing the HTC 10, and scouring the web for potential problems with the device, we’ve created this list of workarounds and possible fixes. Below are some of the more common issues with HTC’s flagship handset.
Problem: Display discoloration
Some HTC 10 owners have found a slight colored tint on their displays, which is more noticeable when the screen is viewed at an angle. Most are reporting a pink or red tinge, but some have a yellowish tint.
- You can try using an app like Screen Equalizer to try and balance the color out.
- Take a look in Settings > Display, gestures & buttons > Color profile and tweak your settings. You can tap the three dots next to your profile to access the slider and make it colder.
- Some people argue that this is caused by glue that hasn’t dried yet. It should fade away by itself, if that’s the case, but you may be able to speed the process up by cranking the brightness up and placing the phone in direct sunlight for a little while.
- If it’s really annoying you and it doesn’t seem to be fading, then contact your carrier, retailer, or HTC and ask about a replacement handset.
