HTC Desire 650

HTC launched the HTC Desire 650 along with the HTC 10 Evo back in November at an event in Taiwan. The HTC Desire 650 is a mid-range smartphone with a lot of reasonable specs apart from its battery capacity which I feel is too low for a modern smartphone.

The HTC Desire 650 comes with a 5-inch HD screen with corning Gorilla glass protection. It flaunts a 13-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video recording and a BSI sensor with LED flash. Upfront is a 5-megapixel camera also with BSI sensor.

The smartphone runs on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with HTC’s Sense UI and is powered by a quad-core 64-bit Snapdragon SoC. It also possesses a custom back panel with 50% smooth surface and 50% ridged surface which allows for firm gripping.

It has HI-Res audio playback and Boomsound tech with the absence of dual speakers. The Desire 650 is also 4G-enabled and runs on a 2200mAh battery. Talking about memory space, the HTC Desire 650 is a big shot. With a 2GB RAM capacity and a 16GB internal memory which is expandable up to a whopping 2TB, you’ve got it all covered. The HTC Desire 650 comes in two colour variations: blue and polar-white.
