HTC Desire 601 overview

If you're looking for a mid-range phone with 4G network capability, the HTC Desire 601 is for you. Staying true to the HTC style, the slim Desire 601 is encased in a smooth, rubberised finish that is perfect to manage one-handed. The 4.5-inch screen is not fully HD, but fear not as it displays web pages, pics and videos clearly, while the BoomSound speakers let you share movies and music exactly like its HTC One cousins. Thanks to the 1.4 GHz processor backed by 1GB of RAM, there is no sign of delay when loading apps and the HTC Sense 5 user interface is helpful and intuitive. The 5MP camera gives you loads of editing options to play around with and the battery won't let you down either. Overall, this is a great all-rounder with the right battery to keep pace.
