HTC Desire 19+ Smartphone Review – 2,5 Cameras and Cheeky Design

Florian Schmitt, 👁 Florian Schmitt (translated by Deepl / Ninh Duy), 10/26/2019

Blue dot. HTC tries its hand at a smartphone with a large rechargeable battery and even spends a triple camera on the back. For almost 300 Euros this sounds like a fair offer. We take a closer look in the test.

Case, Equipment and Operation

HTC uses an exclamation mark for the housing: At least the blue model is a real eye-catcher with a reflective back and a blue dot pattern that pulls in from the edges. The Desire 19+ looks really sporty. The white version is more dignified. The case is stable, but pressure on the front comes through to the screen.

With 64 GB mass memory, the smartphone is less well equipped than Honor 20 Lite or Motorola One Action in the same price range. The Internet is pleasingly fast, but doesn't come close to the very fast WLAN of the Motorola One Action and also has to struggle with strong fluctuations in our test. LTE is available, as is an NFC chip that can be used, for example, to process payments.

The touch screen can be operated smoothly and quite smoothly. On the back there is a fingerprint sensor that unlocks the smartphone quickly and reliably. What strikes us is that the position sensor is either very hectic or delayed. This can have a negative effect on games.

Cameras - No real Triple-Cam

Front camera recording
Front camera recording

The rear triple camera consists of a 13-megapixel lens, an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 5-megapixel depth-of-field supporting lens. It is therefore possible to take photos with both the normal and the wide-angle lens, so the two lenses provide more flexibility.

The image quality of the main camera is OK, in bright and dark areas many details are visible. But the sharpness of the outdoor shot leaves much to be desired in the details. Some objects are visible in the dark, the sharpness of detail is not particularly high here either, but acceptable for a cheap mid-range smartphone. Videos can be recorded in Full HD at 30 fps. The autofocus here is a bit slow and the exposure is not completely stepless in the transitions, but overall the HTC Desire 19+ offers decent video quality for the price range.

The Selfie camera is very high-resolution with 16 megapixels and takes good photos that look a bit crisisy in detail.

Display – No Full HD

With the display, one should be able to expect more for almost 300 euros: A 720p resolution is not enough in this price class, here Honor 20 Lite and Motorola One Action each offer a Full HD display. The brightness is good, but the illumination is somewhat uneven. On the other hand, we like the low black level of 0.33 cd/m², which makes the colors on the screen look a bit stronger. However, the display doesn't come close to an OLED display in terms of color brilliance.

A blue cast can be seen in our measurements with the spectrophotometer, but it's not that bad. The color fidelity ex works is on a quite high level. The response times of the display are quite slow, which can be noticed when scrolling fast.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
30 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17 ms rise
↘ 13 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 73 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
48 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 23 ms rise
↘ 25 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 78 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (39.4 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 100 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 100 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 100 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9338 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Performance, Emissions and Battery life

The Mediatek Helio P35 MT6765 is used as SoC. Our benchmarks, in which the test device is at a similar level to the Honor 20 Lite and clearly ahead of the LG Q60, show that it was chosen quite suitably. Only the graphics performance can't keep up, here Motorola One Action and Honor 20 Lite offer better values in absolute terms. However: Since the HTC Desire 19+ offers a lower-resolution screen, the graphics card doesn't have to do so much in everyday life and is usually on par in the on-screen tests.

The case warms up noticeably, but not up to the critical range. 

HTC has always attached great importance to good loudspeakers, at least in its top models.  The mono loudspeaker on the lower edge of the HTC Desire 19+ can be quite loud. In fact, we also like the sound quite well: not too high, quite warm, and without roaring. External audio sources that receive a clean signal can be connected via a 3.5mm connection and Bluetooth. 

With its 3,850 mAh battery, the HTC Desire 19+ is well equipped and has a good 13:15 hours battery life in our WLAN test. This puts it behind the LG Q60, but still at a very high level. Two days use without an electrical outlet should be possible without any problems, those who seldom use their smartphone should manage much longer without charging. Speaking of charging: the charger delivers a maximum of 10 watts of power and thus manages to recharge the device in less than 3 hours.

Review: HTC Desire 19+. Test device provided by HTC Germany.
Review: HTC Desire 19+. Test device provided by HTC Germany.

The price of the HTC Desire 19+ has already fallen significantly on the Internet. No wonder, for 299 Euro it would be a bit too expensive in the current competitive environment, although it provides quite good arguments for its price: The large battery, for example, the bright and quite colour-true display, the good sound of the loudspeaker, and a decent system performance. The dual camera with an additional lens offers flexibility and takes decent pictures. 

The WLAN is reasonably fast and the fingerprint sensor works well. The case is also available in chic blue for more extravagant buyers or in classic white for more reserved people, so there should be something for everyone.

For the currently just over 200 euros that the smartphone still costs on the Internet, it's almost a bargain: Apart from the somewhat unevenly illuminated screen, the lack of sharpness of detail of the cameras and strong fluctuations in the WLAN signal quality, we hardly have anything to complain about.

The HTC Desire 19+ has become a good smartphone, which also pleases with its extravagant exterior.

The 64 GB mass memory should also be sufficient for many people, but to be fair one has to mention that some competitors offer more.
