Touch buttons under the display not, although free area suggests that it is illogical – to take away part of the display, with unactuated space underneath.
The back panel is removable, it is in the form of a monolithic “bath.” It is nothing but the camera and logo products. The left side wall is empty, the right are the volume keys and power management. The headphone jack is located at the top, MicroUSB – at the bottom.

As of September 2016 the possibility of the chipset is not impressive and consistent with the budget class.
For 3D processing meets GPU Mali 450 MP4. It is suitable for the Games in 2016, but many of them will only play at low quality settings. The synthetic test AnTuTu 6 device is gaining about 35 thousand points.
HTC Desire 620G: Memory
Volume HTC Desire 620G RAM is 1 GB, the type – LPDDR3. This is now sufficient for normal everyday tasks, but not enough for gaming. It can not have enough RAM, and those who used to frequently switch between applications, keep in the background a dozen open programs. At the undemanding user memory deficit hardly be manifested.

The smartphone is equipped with 8-megapixel camera with autofocus and a single flash. Optics Aperture – f / 2.4. The quality of shooting in daytime pretty good, but only if you look at the screen.

In comparison with the competitors camera shows a similar level of quality, but some models lose.
Front camera smartphone has a resolution of 5 MP and is of high quality pictures produced. Video unit records in FullHD resolution, with 30 FPS. Rollers are written in 3gp format, so neither of which high quality is also out of the question.

The device is equipped with loud speakers located on the front panel. Its location is quite good, as the grille is not covered either in the hand or on the table. The sound is loud and clear, even a hint of bass. As for state – the sound quality is good, but to the “elder brothers” from the series One does not hold. The situation is worse with headphones, the unit sounds the same as the Chinese and budgetary device.
HTC Desire 620G: Operating system
As the smartphone OS is installed Android 4.4.2, with a few changes. Sense shell only slightly modifies the interface as a whole it is close to stock Android. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has “forgotten” about users upgrade to the current version there is no system. There are a fresh alternative firmware based Cyanogen, Huawei Emotion UI, and even MIUI8 from Xiaomi, but stable operation is no guarantee.
The abundance of colors of one color is due to the fact that they differ in color auxiliary members. The lid itself – gray or white, but the bezel of the display and the camera is different. This is achieved by slightly unusual (discreet but stylish) type device.

For whom this smartphone
In 2016, to compete with the new state employees HTC Desire 620G is very difficult. It will appeal to undemanding users who do not need megapixels, gigabytes, and a large autonomy, but the matter of sound quality of the speaker and the screen design. Despite the plastic body, the smartphone is ideal for those who are tired of the same type of boxes. Not like the HTC Desire 620G is the owners of small palms.

Our review HTC Desire 620G
At the time of HTC Desire 620G exit it was quite nice and competitive. However, at the time of writing – a smartphone does not look a favorite. He has a modest amount of memory (for the money you can find and 2/16 GB RAM / ROM), poor camera (Meizu M3 takes better), low battery (in Xiaomi Redmi 3 – 4000 mAh) and there is no 4G. The device is intentionally compared with the “Chinese” as a quality user support – this is not about HTC Desire 620G.
In fairness, it should be noted that in the context of products from non-Chinese brands (eg, Samsung J3 or Asus ZenFone Go) smartphone does not look outsider. But with these devices unless it unites the quality of materials and assembly, is no longer a purely property known companies products. Ergonomics – not the strongest side of HTC, is one level lower than that of the same Samsung.
