HTC Desire 610 (AT&T)


The HTC Desire 610 offers a modern Android experience for little cash, but you get what you pay for in the form of disappointing display quality.

Affordable. Runs Android 4.4. Loud front-facing speakers

Low-quality display. Oversized bezels. Glossy, grease-magnet plastic design

With HTC's ill-fated strategy of slimming down its smartphone lineup now a distant memory, the Taiwanese company is back to trotting out a lineup of low and midrange devices to compete with the manufacturing might of Samsung and LG. The HTC Desire 610...

The HTC One M8 stormed its way to a glowing review from CNET editor Brian Bennett thanks to its ultra-luxurious metal design, superb high-definition screen and oodles of power. It's a formidable flagship phone, and comes with a price to match. If your...

The HTC Desire 610 has an affordable price tag, its camera isn't too bad and its navy-blue, plastic body is quite fun.

It has a very disappointingly low resolution display that's not too bright either. Its processor and Android version are the same as the considerably cheaper Motorola Moto G. Its battery is only adequate.

The HTC Desire 610 may be affordable, with an iPhone 5C-style plastic body, but its mediocre specs and poor screen resolution mean it's still not a good buy. For much less money you can grab the 4G Motorola Moto G, which has the same processor, Android...

Great build quality and software for the price - but that's not enough

Great performance ; Excellent gallery ; Range of connectivity options

Weak camera and screen ; Relatively expensive ; Mediocre battery life

Competition is fierce in this part of the smartphone market and there are better options at even lower prices than the HTC Desire 610.

When great companies make poor smartphones


HTC's Desire 610 is dead last on our list of value for money smartphones. Consider the Nokia Lumia 635, Motorola Moto G (4G). Huawei Ascend G6 and Kogan Agora 4G before spending the asking price of this smartphone.

Loud speakers, Good software, 4G

Poor quality 8 megapixel camera, Unattractive, Low resolution screen, Little internal storage

This mid-range smartie packs 4G, NFC and BoomSound speakers. Is that enough to beat the competition? Find out in our HTC Desire 610 review

Solid all rounder ; Big screen ; NFC and 4G

Average camera ; Bulky ; Not that cheap

The HTC Desire 610 is a solid all-round effort. It's well put together, has a big screen, and is fast enough for basic tasks. There are much cheaper alternatives, though, like the Motorola Moto E and Nokia Lumia 630, so you really have to weigh up how...

HTC Desire 610 review


Priced at £239, the HTC Desire 610 is a rival to the likes of the £299 Google Nexus 5, the £229 Sony Xperia M2. That's a reasonable price tag for what you get, but when you compare it to the £100 cheaper Motorola Moto G and realise that the low-cost...

Overall, the HTC Desire 610 will appeal to anyone looking for a reasonably priced all-rounder to use for browsing the web, taking good photos, emailing, texting, making phone calls, playing casual games and running Android apps.

Great performance, but oversized bezels, mediocre screen and noise-riddled camera make it an average handset

HTC's answer to 4G on a reasonable budget

Well made, Good speakers and call quality, Decent camera, Solid all-rounder

Big and chunky, Low-res screen, Price a little high right now

The Desire 610 certainly isn’t a game changer among its peers but at the same time, as with almost all mid-tier devices nowadays, it is a very easy phone to live with.
