HTC Desire 501 Review

0. phoneArena 17 Feb 2014, 04:44 posted on

HTC Desire 501 comes to take the reign from last year's Desire 500 midranger, sporting dual SIM capabilities, too, and quite the similar spec sheet. It, however, has completely revamped looks, supports 3G connectivity at the main SIM slot, has more internal memory, and a larger battery...

I'm not seeing HTC's logic here. Why ship an updated model of a smartphone with older software?

Their logic is to get completely Bankrupted.. They want to end up like Nokia/Motorola.. Both Excellent companies with awesome devices but are bankrupted.. Maybe HTC wants that Google acquires it....

Moto G: High screen resolution. Good performance. Bad camera. Android KitKat!!!
Desire 501: Low screen resolution. Well design. Good camera. Android 4.1!?!?

If Moto G put a 8MP camera on it, it'll be a very best budget phone for everyone ever!
And if Desire 501 put a high screen resolution, it'll better than current Moto G too.

The HTC Desire 501 has a 4.3-inch Super-LCD 2 screen of acceptable quality. Its resolution is 480 by 800 pixels, which is okay given the smartphone’s class, with 217 ppi count.1buy.es Still, fuzzy edges in graphics are easy to spot with a naked eye, regardless of whether you’re surfing the internet, reading an article, or just looking at the icons on your home screen.
