Display and Body

The HTC Desire 526G Plus carries a 4.7-inch IPS LCD multi touch display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels (qHD) leading to a pixel density of 234ppi. The rear cover carries glossy finish and is available in black and white colour variants. On the front panel, you can find dual stereo speakers which have been an integral part of HTC's design trend. It measures 9.8mm around the waist and tips the scale at 154g; both the figures are not so impressive especially if compared to its competitors.

Processor and OS

At the heart of the HTC Desire 526G Plus, there is a 1.7GHz octa-core processor which is undoubtedly its chief USP. It works in combination with a 1GB DDR3 RAM in order to provide powerful and smooth performance. It sails on HTC Sense UI based on Android v4.4 KitKat OS out of the box.

Camera and Storage

The HTC Desire 526G Plus has been spotted with an 8MP autofocus camera at the back which is inclusive of presets like touch to focus, geo-tagging and LED flash. For video calling and capturing selfies, you can use the 2MP snapper at the front. It boasts of an inbuilt storage unit of 8GB which is further expandable up to 32GB via microSD slot.

Battery and Connectivity

Keeping the HTC Desire 526G Plus juiced up for a decent period of time is a 2,000mAh Li-polymer battery. From the connectivity and networking point of view, the smartphone supports standard features like 3G, Wi-Fi, USB port, GPS/A-GPS, Mobile hotspot and Bluetooth.

Verdict

The HTC Desire 526G Plus is a pocket friendly Android smartphone with the major attraction being the octa-core processor. Otherwise, it has got pretty standard features in the other sections. A good HD display was obviously expected at this price.

    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.
