HTC Desire 626 Review

Even though it’s been a tough year for HTC, the Taiwan-based company is always continuing to diversify its robust portfolio. This time, here comes the HTC Desire 626. Knowing what’s out there already, can this sub-$200 offering stand out in a sea already filled with some killer options?...

I don't know what's wrong with PA, the display post good to excellent result with almost spot on colour accuracy but they criticised it because "subdued" tone. And if the display oversaturated or "lively" like they said, they still criticised the display not accurate as the iPhone or Galaxy

I think the 7/10 the right score for this. They should have gone with at least a sd410, 2xx series is a joke these days. Or otherwise price it at about $100 t o120 max.

Agreed, when you can get a Moto G for the same price which is better in probably every single way except for screen quality it's difficult to recommend this

Because HTC doesn't pay Phonearena so this device deserve a score of 7. Just like the Xperia Z3+ lol. I can't really trust Phonearena when it comes to smartphone review because they don't know how to review at all.

As much as I love Sony, it is undeniable that the Z3+ was a huge failure. The overheating problem of the 810 persists for way too long.

Moto G3 scored 9/10 does that mean Moto paid PA? Kindly think before you post a statement like this dude.

HTC never puts enough RAM in their phones wtf. 2 GB ram SD 610-801 atleast and 16GB ROM i would have been sold

This unit pales in comparison to the ZTE Zmax 2 in at&t's prepaid line up. You are paying twice as much for a smaller chinese phone. I am surprised ZTE or Huawei hasn't bought them out yet.
