Reviews for the HTC Desire 520
Even at $199, it’s hard to be totally thrilled by the offering that is the Desire 520, a phone that feels like the poor cousin to last year’s Desire 510, and we mean poor in every sense of the word. Not much has changed from that device, and while we now have a camera flash alongside better cameras, the processor and its performance feel like they have both gone equally backwards, providing a noticeably slow experience that adults and kids alike would probably get frustrated by.
