HTC Desire 620 review

 

Has HTC finally created the mid-ranger you desire?

Impressive screen ; Great camera set up ; Dual-SIM

Cheap feeling design ; Tough, cheaper competition ; Sometimes sluggish performance

Although there is stiff competition in this market the HTC Desire 620 has built up to become everything the Desire 610 was meant to be. The HTC Desire 620 has built on the work of its predecessor and become exactly what the Desire 610 wanted to be -...

The HTC Desire 620 is a well-made smartphone with a good camera, but its poor screen and mediocre battery life hold it back

HTC Desire 620 review

 

HTC's new Desire 620 follows on from its 2014 Desire 610, with a bigger and better screen, a better processor, a new design and improved camera offerings. Readily available for £170, it's a mid-range smartphone that competes with the likes of the...

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...

There was a time, not too long ago, when the Desire name represented something entirely different for HTC. It signified the best Android phones that the Taiwanese company had to offer. Now the HTC One is the pinnacle and the Desire has been relegated...

HTC Desire 620 Review: In Depth

 

We review the HTC Desire 620, a mid-range mobile boasting impressive battery life and a 720p HD screen, but is it as good as a Moto G?

Long battery life ; Sharp HD screen ; 4G support

Cheap look and feel ; Camera merely 'meh'

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.

HTC Desire 620 Review

 

The HTC Desire 620 is a solid all-rounder, especially for the price, but it could do with a bit more power and storage

+ Great design ; + Big screen ; + Good camera

- Not full HD ; - Lacking power ; - Only 8GB of inbuilt storage

The HTC Desire 620 has a great design, a big screen, decent battery life, a slick interface and a good camera, making it a pretty impressive all-rounder considering it’s just £200.

HTC Desire 620 is a budget 5-inch phone, and we love the orange and white model

 

HTC has a new addition to its more affordable mid-range Desire smartphones. Called the Desire 620, this 5-inch Android KitKat phone comes with a 720p display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 4G LTE connectivity. Most importantly, it looks terrific --...

The Desire 620 doesn't come with the fiercest new technology on board, but it looks fun, and should be able to tackle the essentials with ease. The big question of course is how much the phone will actually cost, but if HTC sticks to its "affordable"...

HTC Desire 620 review

 

The HTC Desire 620 offers the advantage of a large 5 inch display and good all-round specs for a mid-range smartphone.

The HTC Desire 620 ticks all the boxes for a phone of this type. It's a well-balanced all-rounder with nice styling, a big screen, and a good camera. Everything else is typical for a mid-range device. Some people may find it a little too big and heavy,...

Too many apps you cant delete as they're part of the standard buid. Results in not enough memory so it runs really slowly.

HTC Desire 620

 

For a Smart Phone the battery life is quite good with various energy saver apps built in. Using it just to phone and text I can get three days battery life when travelling. This phone is great to watch TV and films on good picture quality and sound....

. . . . . As a phone it's not the best. Flimsy build, I use a heavy duty wrap-around case to protect it and stop the back popping off. Lots of Bloatware that can't be deleted but the worse feature is . . . the contacts menu if you ever want to use this...
