HTC is a ship sinking but they still somehow are able to push off products for consumers. The latest addition is a smartphone in the mid ranged price- HTC Desire 601. It is a very decent good looking phone that works incredibly well. Let’s dig into details and know if this works well for you.


Design

The front of the phone is the same as that of a HTC One but it certainly is not of the similar built quality. HTC Desire 601 is pretty nice with a 600 Desire type of built. It is not exactly metallic but it grips your hand perfectly and feels good enough to hold it. HTC Desire 601 has some amazing speakers. They are of the same calibre as that on the HTC One, believe it or not.

Display

HTC Desire 601 comes with a 4.5 inch qHD display. The resolution is of 960×540 pixels. The colours are really vibrant and have great consistency and tone. You will instantly fall in love with the display on HTC Desire 601. It has great viewing angles and dark black levels. It is a one display which is meant to be great. HTC Desire 601 just becomes exponentially likeable with the display alone.

Camera

This mid-range beast comes with a standard 5 MP camera. It does not produce the best of details but for a 5MP shooter, it is excitingly colourful and not much under saturated like other mid ranged smartphones.
