HTC Desire 620 launched: an enhanced Desire 610

For our money, Taiwanese manufacturer HTC is getting better at delivering memorable mid-range phones, with the Desire 610 standing out as an entirely decent handset – for its price.

As such, our interest is well and truly piqued with the announcement of the HTC Desire 620, essentially a Desire 610 but a wee bit betterified.

Diving straight into HTC Desire 620 specs, the phone has a 5in 720p display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, 5MP front facer, 8GB expandable storage, 4G connectivity, and a 2,100mAh battery.

Obvious question: What’s the difference between the spanking new HTC Desire 620 and the seven-month-old Desire 610?

For starters, the display is larger (5in vs. 4.7in) with a higher resolution (720p vs. 960 x 540), yielding more pixels per inch (294 PPI vs. 234 PPI).

The other noticeable change is the enhanced front camera (5MP vs. 1.3MP), and we quite like the Desire Eye-style two-tone design.

HTC Desire 620 price will of course be crucial, with deal-savvy consumers inevitably wondering if this is worth buying over, say, the second-generation Motorola Moto G.

In any case, you’ll be able to buy the Saffron Grey HTC Desire 620 from O2 come January, with the other colours (Santorini White and Tuxedo Grey) destined for Carphone Warehouse, EE, Three and O2 from early 2015.

Is that crucial?

Looking at the differences between the HTC 620 and 610 then I agree the pricing is crucial but what I meant is other than that then the operating system is crucial for me , I would pay a little extra for the better screen & if running newer android (lollipop preferably) as long as the build quality is not considerably worse (doubt its possible) although HTC budget phones should still be sturdy enough.

Gotcha... I have to say: having used the One M7 and M8 quite a bit, I prefer the Desire 610.
Well, minus the camera, of course.
