Reviews for the HTC Desire 610

81% HTC Desire 610 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
More please. HTC shakes up the smartphone middle-class with their Desire 610. The smartphone is equipped with a 4.7-inch qHD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 Quadcore-SoC with an Adreno 305 GPU, 1 GB RAM, and 8 GB of flash storage - all for 299 Euro ($405). The HTC Sense 6.0 user interface spruces up Android 4.4 KitKat, while LTE allows for fast data transfers. So is this a really well-executed smartphone for little money?
70% HTC Desire 610 review: Good all-round mid-range smartphone that's just a tad overpriced
Source: PC Advisor English
Overall, the HTC Desire 610 will appeal to anyone looking for a reasonably priced all-rounder to use for browsing the web, taking good photos, emailing, texting, making phone calls, playing casual games and running Android apps. The HTC Sense software is sleek and easy to use and you'll be satisfied with the battery life. We really enjoyed our time with the HTC Desire 610 and don't have any real qualms aside from the large bezels and slightly disappointing display.

Ultimately, though, a decent battery life isn't enough to save this otherwise very average handset. The HTC Desire 610 may have excellent performance for its price, but its mediocre screen and camera are severely outclassed by the competition. If you're looking for an excellent mid-range handset and don't mind spending a little more money, the Motorola Moto X is well worth the extra expense.

The HTC Desire 600 is something that should have been a proper all round phone that takes all in the fast paced competition in the mid range tier. The design has flaws, the sound isn’t great and the screen isn’t exactly the best. It’s the kind of device that tries when it shouldn’t since it’s taking aspects from one of the best android phones I’ve seen this year.

Great build quality and software for the price - but that's not enough
Source: Techradar English
Competition is fierce in this part of the smartphone market and there are better options at even lower prices than the HTC Desire 610. While it does deliver in its range of features, the Moto G betters it in almost every way with a superior screen, better battery life and equally successful software. The LG G2 Mini also offers a better overall compromise at a similar price. The Desire 610 has some of the best build quality and arguably the best software available at this price as well as a smooth and fluid interface, but that isn't enough in the end to make it a truly compelling device.

73% HTC Desire 610 review: watered-down HTC on the cheap
Source: Pocketnow English
All things considered, the Desire 610 is a nice budget entry from HTC. It isn’t the biggest, baddest smartphone on the market, and it’s not even the best value around; both the Moto G and Moto E are seriously tough competitors when it comes to what you get for your money. The biggest drawbacks of the 610 will be the display and camera experience, both of which are particularly bad. Oh, and it’s a pretty serious fingerprint magnet. But performance, storage options, and even the build of the phone are straight down the middle of the road, which is perfectly in line with the price point of this handset.

The HTC Desire 610 is a solid all-round effort. It's well put together, has a big screen, and is fast enough for basic tasks. There are much cheaper alternatives, though, like the Motorola Moto E and Nokia Lumia 630, so you really have to weigh up how much you need extras like a big screen, LTE and 4G.

The Desire 610 is a solid all-rounder. The screen isn't as sharp as we’d like, but the camera is decent and the design is quirky and charming, though perhaps a tad larger than we'd like for a 4.7-inch phone. Its main problem, however, is it's a little pricey considering the wealth of excellent (and often cheaper) alternatives. The HTC Desire 610 is a good phone, but it has to compete with some exceptionally good value phones. At current prices there are better options, but it's worth considering if you can find a good deal.

Comment

Model:

The HTC Desire 616 is a dual-SIM phone that thrives as a multimedia powerhouse. The design is a trademark of HTC: a block look with simply rounded edges and glossy white or grey back panel. The 5 inch HD720 display definitely delivers the good colors and clarity. The HTC Desire 616's reputation as a media device stems from the hardware; in this case the 1.4 GHz Cortex-A7 octa-core processor, 1GB RAM, and a Mali-450MP4 graphics chip.

Though the internal memory is nothing to shout about at a mere 4 GB, users can use a microSD card of up to 32 GB to boosts media storage. The main feature is still the ability to use dual-SIM with a combination of Mini-SIM and Micro-SIM. This allows users to easily change SIMs of different sizes without issues.

The Android 4.2.2 device has an 8 megapixel autofocus rear camera and a secondary 2 megapixel front shooter. Another good addition is the FM radio with RDS capability, which is not even seen in some high-end devices. Battery life is good with a Lithium-ion cell rated at 2000 mAh and this allows a talk time of 14 hours.

Qualcomm Adreno 305: Integrated mid-range graphics card in the Snapdragon 400 and S4 Plus SoCs that supports OpenGL ES 3.0 and features unified shaders.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
