HTC Desire 610 8GB Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Quad-Core Android 4.4 Smartphone - Black (No Warranty)

HTC Desire is a good quality phone launched many years ago, packed with a 4.7" multi-touch capacitive display, a 1200 MHz Quad-Core processor, and two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.3 megapixels front camera. Let's take a closer look at what this phone has to offer.

HTC offers this cellphone in lots of color variations, black, green, blue, red and white. HTC made a really good job making this phone as lightweight as 5.06 ounces. This phone is thin, with a thickness of just 0.38".

HTC decided to build this cellphone with a powerful 1200 MHz Quad-Core CPU, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chip with 1 GB RAM memory. To handle graphic calculations, this phone also uses an Adreno 305 GPU working at 450 MHz. This device counts with an 8 GB interesting internal storage and a slot for external memory cards, allowing the user to store a couple hundred games and apps without running out of space.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera. This device also captures videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD). In addition, this cellphone's camera also has a few nice characteristics like auto-focus, flash and geo tagging.

HTC packed this phone with a very good 4.7-inches display, and a 854 x 480 resolution, providing this device with a nice graphic quality.

This cellphone features wi-fi connectivity (although it can't be provided to other devices acting as a router), 4G LTE fast connectivity and also HSPA+ data connection, which is a slower 4G type or fast 3G data connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This phone uses a Nano SIM card to use GSM services and it can work with both CDMA and GSM.

This phone has a 2040 mAh high capacity Li-Polymer non-removable battery that provides this cellphone an incredible battery duration. An issue to evaluate is that this cellphone's battery is non-removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins losing capacity, although having 2040 mAh you will probably buy a new phone before it becomes an issue.

The HTC Desire also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth, GPS Localization and Near Field Communication (NFC), and some sensors likeLight Sensor, Proximity Sensor and Accelerometer.

HTC is selling the HTC Desire for only $ 109, which is an incredible offer for comparing with other similar cellphones. No matter if you need a cellphone to mainly use social networks, will use it as a gaming cellphone or want a work phone, you will probably be very happy with it.
