The affordable HTC Desire 626 heading to EE soon


Want a phone that’s as unique as you are? Well you can’t have one, but the HTC Desire 626 is at least fairly customisable, with a dual-colour design which you can mix-and-match for a combination that suits you.

The phone is headed to EE on the 10th of September and it could be worth the wait if you’re in the market for a budget 4G handset.

As well as a stylish and customisable design the HTC Desire 626 also supports HTC Themes, so you can create your own icons and wallpaper based on your favourite photo, making the software as customisable as the hardware.

Its 5.0-inch 720 x 1280 display is not just a good size but also fairly sharp, with a pixel density of 293 pixels per inch. Plus with a 13 megapixel camera on the back and a 5 megapixel one on the front the HTC Desire 626 can take decent quality photos.

16GB of storage plus a microSD card slot with support for cards of up to 512GB means you can store all your media and apps on it and its 2000 mAh battery can keep it going for up to 22 hours of calls or 790 hours of standby.

It supports 4G and with BlinkFeed on board and dual front-facing speakers you get many of the best HTC features too. If there’s any disappointment it’s the processor, which is just a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410, though it does at least include a healthy 2GB of RAM.

EE hasn’t confirmed how much it will charge for the HTC Desire 626, but we’d expect it will be fairly affordable and could be a strong alternative to the likes of the Moto G 3rd gen.

Come back soon and find out more about the HTC Desire 626.
