Reviews for the HTC Desire 620

60% HTC Desire 620 review
Source: Expert Reviews English version
The HTC Desire 620 may be much better made than last year's model, but sadly it's a clear step down in almost every other category. It has a decent camera, but there are plenty of cheaper phones which are much better value, such as Motorola's 2nd Gen Moto G and even the newly announced 2nd Gen Moto E.

For around £170, the HTC Desire 620 offers decent enough value. The design may look and feel cheap but everyday battery life is excellent and the HD screen keeps things sharp, while we’re still fans of HTC Sense. Thanks to for providing the review handset.

70% HTC Desire 620 review: Mid-range smartphone gives Moto G a run for its money
Source: Tech Advisor English version
The HTC Desire 620 is a good mid-range smartphone that is well-priced if you find it for £170. That's around £20 more than the Moto G, but you'll get front-facing speakers, a better front-facing camera, a slightly speedier processor and 4G LTE for that extra cash. The graphics performance is disappointing, though, and we'd have liked to see HTC slim down the bezels and overall design of the smartphone, but we'd suggest that if you're looking for a smartphone in the mid-range category, the Desire 620 is well-worth considering.

Hands on: HTC Desire 620 review
Source: Techradar English version
The HTC Desire 620 has built on the work of its predecessor and become exactly what the Desire 610 wanted to be - and probably should have been. HTC has created a substantial mid-ranger with some good specs and power behind it but the competition in his market is looking tougher and tougher each iteration.

66.67%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
