About Htc Desire 601:
Even though HTC doesn’t release too many phones, it has got its handsets in every range & the recent released products seem to be filling the gaps in the mid-range smartphone market. HTC Desire 601 is another mid-ranger by the Taiwanese tech giant that will ship at price point lower than HTC One Mini. Desire 601 is a good mid ranger providing some features of firm’s flagship, the HTC One without putting that much of pressure on the pocket. Now it’s time to get in some depth.
Desire 601 borrows its design from HTC One. Unlike HTC One which has metal body, Desire 601 has got a polycarbonate chassis. This plastic body of Desire 601 has got soft, rubbery finish which feels pleasant while holding it. Like the HTC One, Desire 601 also has the dual “Boom Sound” speakers in the front. With dimensions 134.5x66.7x9.9 mm, the Desire 601 doesn’t feel hefty at all. There shouldn’t be any issues in using it with only hand. It has good looks & is certainly sturdy.
Desire 601 hosts a 4.5 inch big screen with resolution of 540x960p. Sadly it isn’t laid with an HD display & pixel density rests at 245 ppi. It isn’t a bad display by any measure, but we’ll be delighted if it had an HD one. The display is neither too big nor too small. Brightness is sufficient to read texts even in daylight. Viewing angles are also good but you may catch it pixelated at odd times, if you’re a keen observer.
Desire 601 packs a 5 MP rear camera with an LED flash. There’s also a VGA front-facing camera for video calling. Again, we wished the resolution was some higher, given that its cheaper sibling, Desire 501 sports a 8 MP rear & 2.1 MP front-facing camera. But 1 thing that you won’t get with the camera of Desire 501 is HTC Zoe. Yes, HTC has provided this mid-ranger with features that we’ve only seen in high-end HTC phones so far. It’s indeed an interesting & fun feature to have. 1080p videos can be recorded with Desire 601 with a decent frame rate of 30 fps.
Already said, Desire 601 has two speakers in the front. Credits to Boom Sound, these speakers produce stunning sound. These speakers are powered by a built-in amplifier. HTC has also laid Desire 601 with Beats Audio technology making it a superb music phone. The sound produced is loud & crisp.
Software & Processor:
Desire 601 runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense UI 5.0 on top of it. This version of HTC Sense is 1 of our most liked interfaces. Skinning is done brilliantly & the processor has no problem running it. Thanks to Sense 5.0, Desire 601 has got features like Zoe, Boom Sound & Blink Feed. Blink Feed is a great feature to have. It brings your social life altogether. The 1.2 GHz dual-core snapdragon processor does its job fine most of the time. You can witness a little stuttering with some heavy apps but that’s not often. It handles tasks smoothly most of the time. Adreno 305 chip is there to handle graphics. 1 GB RAM backs this pair.
Connectivity & Storage:
Desire 601 is a 4G device. So, you’ll enjoy expeditious internet connection (if the service providers provide 4G services in your area). Speed is too good in 3G too. It also supports Wi-Fi for fast internet connections. It also has Bluetooth v4.0, DLNA on the board. A micro USB port is also there. The internal memory of the device is 4 GB & if you think it won’t suffice your needs, there’s also an option for expanding it up to 64 GB with a Micro SD card.
HTC Desire 601 is a decent overall package. It doesn’t have specs that can particularly ‘whoo’ you, but on the other hand, it isn’t a bad phone at all. It has a decent spec list & some of the features of HTC’s flagship that you won’t get with any other phone at this price point.
