HTC Desire 610 review

 

Great build quality and software for the price - but that's not enough

Great performance ; Excellent gallery ; Range of connectivity options

Weak camera and screen ; Relatively expensive ; Mediocre battery life

Ratings in depth While the top-of-the range HTC One M8 has sent all rivals scattering before it, HTC has also been busy building out a good-sized range of middle and lower-end smartphones using its former flagship brand, Desire. The Desire 610 sits...

Can the HTC Desire 610 win the mid-range smartphone war?

Solid all rounder ; Big screen ; NFC and 4G

Average camera ; Bulky ; Not that cheap

Great performance, but oversized bezels, mediocre screen and noise-riddled camera make it an average handset

HTC Desire 610 review

 

Priced at £239, the HTC Desire 610 is a rival to the likes of the £299 Google Nexus 5, the £229 Sony Xperia M2. That's a reasonable price tag for what you get, but when you compare it to the £100 cheaper Motorola Moto G and realise that the low-cost...

Overall, the HTC Desire 610 will appeal to anyone looking for a reasonably priced all-rounder to use for browsing the web, taking good photos, emailing, texting, making phone calls, playing casual games and running Android apps.

The Desire 610 certainly isn’t a game changer among its peers but at the same time, as with almost all mid-tier devices nowadays, it is a very easy phone to live with.

The HTC Desire 610 is a good all-round mid-range smartphone with a price tag that's just a tad too high. Here's our full HTC Desire 610 UK review.

HTC's Desire 610 is dead last on our list of value for money smartphones. Consider the Nokia Lumia 635, Motorola Moto G (4G). Huawei Ascend G6 and Kogan Agora 4G before spending the asking price of this smartphone.

HTC Desire 610 (AT&T)

 

The HTC Desire 610 offers a modern Android experience for little cash, but you get what you pay for in the form of disappointing display quality.

Affordable. Runs Android 4.4. Loud front-facing speakers

Low-quality display. Oversized bezels. Glossy, grease-magnet plastic design

With HTC's ill-fated strategy of slimming down its smartphone lineup now a distant memory, the Taiwanese company is back to trotting out a lineup of low and midrange devices to compete with the manufacturing might of Samsung and LG. The HTC Desire 610...
