Display and Outfit

The HTC Desire 526G Plus 16GB sports a 4.7-inch IPS LCD multi touch display offering decent viewing experience with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels resulting in a pixel density of 234ppi. It has a waistline of 9.8mm and a weight of 154g, which is pretty bulky especially if compared to its much slimmer and lighter rivals. It is available in white and black colours with the rear panel featuring a glossy finish.

Processor and Platform

The chief selling point of the HTC Desire 526G Plus 16GB is its processor made up of eight cores and clocked at 1.7GHz. Together with 1GB DDR3 RAM, it has the ability to make light of powerful applications. It ships with Android v4.4 KitKat OS dressed in HTC Sense UI.

Camera, Storage and Multimedia

The main camera of the HTC Desire 526G Plus 16GB captures 8MP stills and supports features like autofocus, LED flash, touch to focus and geo-tagging. It is accompanied by a 2MP front facing camera for clicking selfies and making video calls. As the name indicates, it comes with an internal memory of 16GB which is again further expandable up to 32GB.

Battery and Connectivity

To ensure an uninterrupted service for a fair period of time, the HTC Desire 526G Plus 16GB depends on a 2,000mAh Li-ion battery. Moving to the connectivity and networking section, we have standard features like 3G, Wi-Fi, Mobile hotspot, GPS, USB port and Bluetooth.

Verdict

Go for the HTC Desire 526G Plus 16GB if you are a big fan of HTC and want something within budget. It boasts of octa-core processor but misses out anything impressive otherwise. The phone supports some unique HTC features like BlinkFeed, Offline Reading and Video Highlights.

    Overall: In one word : phenomenal nnBought this for my dad. nPros:n1.Screen:n After seeing a lot of reviews thought that screen might disappoint, as in a review i found out it supports only 2 touch max, thought thats weird and might affect in responsiveness when multi touch. I let my faith in htc for their displays do the job, and hands on, the display is stunning, perfect color reproduction for the price or above, no issues at all, even in gaming. n2.Sound:n The speaker is loud and clear, and its mono (bottom front), its a good thing its in front as it will not get muffled. n3.UI:n Though its not SenseUI it is skinned+blinkfeed, additionally there is easymode which old people might prefer. n4.Build:n Though plastic (its 10K man what else can you get :D ) , it has a sturdy/solid feel to it. n5.Performance:n Now thats where it kills everyone in its price range OR MORE , you can check out benchmark reviews in youtube, and those values (32K antutu) are not bogus, and is completely felt while using, even when the phone is just running in power saving mode (low cpu freq). So no lags at ALL, throw at it anything it doesn't matter, the low ram of 1GB dont affect performance, may be HTC (or mediatek) knows how to deal with it nicely, disable a few bloats of google and you'll get a lot of RAM free (though you dont need to :D ) n6. Camera n Prim:8 and Sec:2 , does job superbly , especially back 8mp cam (no one will argue read reviews across web) n7.Many More like low value SAR (0.9 at head) , 16GB space (12+ free)... nCons n1. No notification indicator LED : that is the only big con i can find out in this phone.n2. Glossy back panel : Some may feel it bad, as it may be slippery, buy a case and it will be fine.n3. Accessories : Below average headphone : does the job, for the price, but for audiophiles I would definitely recommend to buy a better one. (Dad doesn't care :D )n4. No gorilla glass, only motoG provides that and thats 13k though. nThats all I bought this after looking through motoG, motoE, huawei holly, asus zenphone, reasons why i regected those n1.Moto G/E: high SAR 1.52 at head, my dad attends a lot of calls, dont want to kill him :D, and skeleton android is not so good skin.n2.Huawei: Good, but as china and as starters in smartphone market (comparatively), am quite sure battery,screen will die fast and i have seen reviews here itself and over web.n3.Asus: Good, but pretty large(than usual 5" phones), and HIGH value of SAR. nGo ahead buddies, buy it if you're looking for a phone with a balanced size, good screen, ample space, superior performance, good cam..., from a nice brand too.

    Overall: I have bought this phone from Flipkart, packing and delivery was as good as phone boasts for its brand Name 'HTC'. but as soon as i experienced the worst quality i have ever seen in any branded smartphone....I am surprised why people admire HTC. Device heats a lot and audio quality is too poor to believe. signal strength is very weak AND above all customer support is ridiculous ....disapproved the return request at their own. Disappointment at its peak first time with Flipkart.com . I 'm sorry to say but I will rethink again and again before recommending Flipkart to anyone else.
