The HTC 10 is a masterfully crafted handset with a striking design, but how does it hold up to Cupertino’s iPhone 6s? We put the new Android flagship up against Apple’s iPhone 6s to find out.

When it comes to pure specs, HTC seems to have the advantage, offering a higher resolution display, more RAM, better storage options and a bigger battery. Then again, Apple’s tight integration between hardware and software may give the iPhone 6s an edge.

Check out our spec-by-spec breakdown below.
