The AirPlay option is located in the HTC connect app that comes pre-installed on all HTC smartphones.
2. Switch Between Grid and Freestyle Themes
Yeah, Android OS is kind of boring for tech savvy folks because of the grid arrangements of stuffs like menu items, widgets or so.
Interestingly, the new HTC 10 breaks away from the ‘grid slavery’ on Android by giving users the option to choose between the grid and freestyle theme.
To achieve this, you simply tap and hold any empty space on the desktop screen and the option to Change Home Screen Layout should appear.
Select it and choose Freestyle Layout. The Themes app will launch and you can then choose which theme or themes you want to download. So easy right?

HTC 10 understands the need to save some battery juice as well as your dying passion for gaming on your smartphone. So the HTC 10 tries to strike a balance between these as it comes packed with an app that minimises juice consumption while you game.
The Game Battery Booster app is located in the pre-installed Boost+ app on the HTC 10 smartphone. From here you can specify which games the battery booster app should handle.
All the Game Battery Booster app does is to reduce your screen resolution while you game. Don’t worry, you wouldn’t notice the reduction much but your battery will last more!

If you are the kind of person who loves getting things done by just waving your hands or swiping your fingers across the screen, the HTC 10 should be your friend.
The HTC 10 allows you to get things done by waving at or pointing stuffs on the screen. For example you can go to the last-used screen by swiping up, return to the Home panel by swiping left or double-barreled the screen to unlock the phone.. How cool right?
