HTC Desire for lower ranges
Though HTC has organized the lower ranges within the family Desire, the HTC One M8 of last year is still looking for its place and could be placed half way. the reason? its camera ultrapixel that despite their good results, note the lack of resolution in certain cases.
In terms of the standard medium range, with more plastic building materials, lower resolution screen and less powerful processors, we find two main models: HTC Desire 820 with screen of 5.5 inches and the HTC Desire 620 that stays on the 5 inch and specifications something below.
Ending the review, in simple range we find other two proposals which provide for basic use and prefer to adjust the price, HTC Desire 510 and HTC Desire 320. This time share screen size which remains at 4.5 inches but differ mainly in the connectivity and the megapixel camera.
