HTC Desire 601

 

With its all-metal design and full-HD screen, the HTC One is a stunning piece of kit, whether you're a hardened tech nerd or a casual phone fan with deep pockets. If your budget is a bit tighter -- or you simply have better things to spend your money...

The HTC Desire 601 shares attractive design cues with the flagship HTC One, the front-facing speakers pack a serious punch, it has 4G LTE and it won't break the bank either.

It's running on old Android software, its screen resolution doesn't impress and its dual-core processor doesn't really give a lot of power.

Sure, it doesn't have the latest Android software on board, but if you're after a good-looking HTC phone with powerful speakers and 4G LTE for speedy data downloads, the Desire 601 is an affordable option to consider.

HTC Desire 601 Review

 

HTC is slowly building an army of mid-range smartphones, and the Desire 601 is one of the newest officers in its ranks. With a 4.5” qHD display, Snapdragon 400 SoC and a 5 MP camera, the HTC Desire 601 is definitely not going to scare away the opposing...

Front-facing stereo speakers

Mediocre call quality ; So-so camera

The HTC Desire 601 is an OK mid-range smartphone. It doesn't fascinate us in any area, including the design, the internals and the software. However, it does deliver a decent user experience with no significant slow-downs.

HTC Desire 601 review: Hands-on

 

The HTC Desire 601 is the first of the brand's mid-range Desire phones to feature LTE. T3 went in for a closer look...

While the price has yet to be announced, the HTC Desire 601 will sport a much more affordable price tag than the top-of-the-range HTC One and One Mini. Add to that LTE connectivity and a nicely desinged chassis, and this could be a serious contender in...

Hands-on: An enticing mid-range phone with the awesome speakers from the HTC One

The HTC Desire 601 is a sensible phone with a feature or two that helps separate it from the masses of pretty anonymous mid-range Android phones. Best of the lot is the BoomSound array of speakers on the phone’s front, which supply much meatier sound...

HTC Desire 601 Review: In Depth

 

The HTC Desire 601 is a stylish mid-range phone with a 5-megapixel camera that records Full HD video, twin external speakers and 4G.

Slick, streamlined design ; HTC Zoe animated pictures ; BoomSound twin external speakers

Average camera ; Non-HD screen ; Low internal storage

The real question you should ask if you’re in the market for a mid-range Android phone is - do you value elegance and ease of use over power and specs appeal? Once you’ve answered that, the choice of which phone to go for should be obvious.
