HTC Desire-626 Review – Mix of Beauty & Lackluster Performance

The first one of the HTC was launched in 2015 (Desire 620) and it was hard to get out before of arriving the HTC Desire 626. Unsurprisingly, there is not a lot of difference between two Smartphones. They shared the similar basic design with 5-inch screen and display of 1,280 x 720 resolutions. They are powered from the same chipset. Moreover, both phones are same as their size and weight as well. But, the only upgrade they are provided to the customers is the specification of the 13-Megapixel larger rear camera along with more internal storage.

Review of the HTC Desire 626

Although it’s technical specifications have not differed much, but the software of the Desire 626 is really made it stand out. It is one of the first Smartphones of this time outside flagship of HTC’ One M9 coming with the interface of new Sense 7. In addition, it runs off Android Lollipop version with Sense 6 UI. It also presents some other opportunities to customize your Smartphone keeping pace with your individual style.

Display of the HTC Desire-626

Instead of sharing same-size screen of the Desire 620, it has another panel this time. The color calibrator has displayed 81.9 percent of the sRGB color gamut where the Desire 620 had 76.5 percent. But, it’s not completely brilliant yet, as it should be at least 85 percent. As a result, its images are decent in comparing with Moto G. Above all; its colors are incredibly cool with the strong blues. There is a lack of coverage of the warm color to round out.

Camera of the HTC Desire-626

The rear camera with 13-megapixel is one of the most disappointed things of the HTC Desire-626. Its images are darker along with the problems of the echoing the exposure. But, there is not much detail present either. It provides the balance of correct exposure switching to HDR, but the images look finer and overly cool details.

Battery Life of the HTC Desire-626

It has a max bright screen that puts a negative effect on the battery life of the phone. Instead of the high brightness, the phone still is able to last more than a day. In the test of continuing video playback, it ran about 10 hours and 7 minutes with 2000mAh battery. It takes par with the Sony Xperia, but less than Moto G’s life of 11 hours and 12 minutes.

Performance the HTC Desire-626

Sense 7 has made this model stand out with so many customizing options. It took it from other to a mid – range handset from lower ones. Its Snapdragon 410 chip with 1.2 GHz processor well enough along with Qualcomm’s quad-core. It various bench tests support it as a slower one than 3rd Gen Moto G. It also is comparatively pale with Sony Xperia and other similar models.


Instead of HTC Desire-626’s Lackluster Performance, this one is a mid-range handset. It’s almost similar of its nearer competitor Sony Xperia, Smart Ultra 6 of Vodafone, Moto G and others. I’m a great fan of HTC Desire-626’s new Sense 7 interface. I also like its great design comes with the handsets. The phone just requires an improved handset to compare with justice.
