The smartphone landscape is changing so fast that what worked a year ago would be a disaster today.

Every manufacturer deals with it in its own way: Apple is moving at its own pace, careful to add one marquee feature in each new iPhone. Samsung seems to love tossing in a dozen odd features in the hopes something will stick (although the company’s toned down the gimmicks this year).

How do you improve a smartphone camera? The easiest way would be to use a faster lens and larger sensor. But with today’s super slim smartphones, you can’t just slap a huge camera module on the back — unless you want it to have an unsightly bulge.

One solution seems to be the trend in 2016: multiple cameras. That, at least, is how several smartphone heavyweights, including LG and Huawei, are tackling the matter. And with rumors that Apple’s iPhone 7 might come with two rear-facing cameras,…

If it comes true this fall, there will no doubt be riots on the streets. Apple fans will be pissed at first, but will eventually get over it, defending Apple’s design and engineering decisions. Android fans and phone makers will cry: “Ha, you silly Apple sheep!”

Actually, maybe it won’t be that shocking. China’s LeEco…

But things are looking up. HTC’s new flagship HTC 10 has all of the cutting-edge tech you could want from a premium phone. Most notably, the HTC 10 has a camera that doesn’t suck.

The HTC 10′s solid aluminum…
