Display, configuration and OS

HTC Desire 601 features a 4.5-inch screen with a 540 x 960 pixel resolution. The gadget is powered by the Quad core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and 1GB of RAM. HTC Desire 601 is running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with HTC’s Sense UI on top.

Camera and storage

Decent quality video recording might be carried out through 5 Megapixels rear camera which has an additional feature of autofocus and LED flash. 0.3 Megapixels front VGA Camera can be utilized for sharing own snaps to loved ones. The gadget has a bit low 4GB Internal memory which might be expanded up to 64GB via the onboard microSD card slot.

Battery and connectivity

2100mAh battery device sits underneath the battery cover. HTC Desire 601 incorporates all connectivity features as 3G, Wi-Fi, EDGE, Bluetooth, GPS, GPRS etc. Other specs include Accelerometer, Compass, Light sensor, Proximity sensor etc. HTC Zara looks awesome with its matte plastic back cover.

Verdict

HTC Desire 601 comes with bit sweet and bit salty mix of specifications. While the integration of Quad core processor is a welcome move, the device lacks a bit on camera and storage front. But then what you pay is what you get. If you want to save some bucks for the sake of a few pixels, consider this, the performance won't disappoint you.

    HTC is going through a tough journey this year as it tries to compete with Apple, LG and Samsung in the high-end market space. Meanwhile, HTC is busy building up variety in the mid-range and entry level segments which seem to be equally lucrative. Its latest strategy is the introduction of the Desire 601, which HTC pegs as "a powerful value smartphone for everyone". Is it really the most advanced mid-range smartphone in the market today?

    Overall: I am using Desire X, which makes me quite addicted to HTC. I was waiting eagerly for lunching this phone in India, as this is the cheapest HTC with all the specification I required. But, I am totally shocked and disappointed to see that in the Indian market version HTC has replaced the Snapdragon 400 processor by a cheaper Broadcom BCM23550 processor. Along with that the LTE support is also missing. HTC did the same thing earlier with One S also. HTC, we Indians are not that much fool as you think. Please stop being over-smart, if you want to save your market here.
