The Desire 600 is one of the first devices from HTC to sport the same design philosophy that we’ve seen in its much acclaimed flagship phone, the HTC One. It’s affordable, when compared to the One and comes with dual-SIM functionality, targeting a different user group. Of course, it doesn’t boast of premium materials, high-end hardware and premium features, but as far as the software is concerned, it does come with all the bells and whistles offered by modern Android smartphones. So, is the Desire 600 a good buy? We try to find out in our review.
The HTC Desire 600 comes in two colour variants, Black and White/ Silver. We got the White/ Silver coloured variant as our review unit, and we must say that it looks pretty different from the other rectangular slabs available in the market thanks to the unique colour scheme.
The front of the phone features a 4.5-inch display panel surrounded by a Black bezel, which is encapsulated by a frame that sports a brushed aluminium finish with Red accents on the edges. The phone also sports two front speakers, similar to the HTC One. The two capacitive touch buttons for Back and Home sit below the display with the HTC branding in between, while the 1.6-megapixel front camera is located above the display. A notification LED is buried within the top speaker grill.
