The Taiwanese handset manufacturer, HTC needs no introduction in the Indian handset market being one of the leading brand. It is one of the first brand to recognise the market for budget segment handset. That is the reason why it has two lineups with One series housing its flagship devices and Desire series housing its mid-range as well as budget handsets. HTC Desire 526G Plus is a budget handset from the brand that comes with decent specifications and attractive looks. Here is a brief overview of the device for our readers.
HTC Desire 526G Plus comes with the standard polycarbonate make and bar form factor that is found on most budget segment handsets. However, the handset comes with the attractive Desire design featuring dual-tone color combo.
The handset maker has equipped the new device with a decent 4.7-inch display that is good enough for multimedia and gaming purpose. HTC has also equipped the handset with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, which looks sharp on screen this size.
HTC has pre-installed the dated Android 4.4.2 Kitkat operating system, which might prove to be a deal breaker for many users. However, we are here to tell you that despite being dated, Android Kitkat happens to be one of the most stable release from Google.
Performance and Battery Life
For a stellar performance, HTC has equipped this budget handset with a powerful Octa-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz. However, the performance is slightly dampened by 1 GB of RAM, which we feel should have been atleast 2 GB to make this device a perfect handset. The rear panel of the handset houses a 2000 mAh battery that is more than enough for most users.
For photography lovers, the handset maker has equipped the new device with a primary camera of 8 MP on rear panel. This handset also comes with 2 MP selfie camera on its front.
On the connectivity front, HTC has decided to devoid the new budget segment of 4G LTE and has equipped it with support for 3G instead. Other connectivity options on the device include Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, microUSB, Bluetooth and GPS.
HTC is known for manufacturing impressive handsets in terms of specifications and design under its Desire series. HTC Desire 526G Plus too does not disappoint with a powerful processor, however, we feel that the screen resolution and RAM could have been more.
