The new HTC Desire 520 is recommended to those who are searching for a cheap phone and a display that is similar with those dating back to 2009.
Still, this device doesn’t come with impressive specs or features that will transform it into a strong contender on the market.
However, this doesn’t mean that the phone is bad and people should not buy it. We know that HTC has released many budget-friendly smartphones, but this one is probably the cheapest phone on the market.
The new HTC Desire 520 can be bought at the price of 100 dollars, which will be a huge attraction for clients who don’t want to spend a large amount of money.
At first sight, this phone looks pretty good and appealing to average consumers. The 4.5-inch device can be very comfortable and users can put it without any problems in their pockets. Moreover, it has a quad-core processor and 8-megapixel camera, which are not impressive at all, but are decent for making calls, texting or search something on the Web.
So, what’s not to like at this device? The new HTC Desire 520 is probably the most recommendable phone for children or old people. For those who are searching for a high-end device, this phone is not recommended, because if they dive deeper, they will see a poor battery life, limited storage and a dated operating system.
However, this is not something that we can blame HTC for, because for releasing a device that costs 100 dollars, it is obvious that the company had to make some sacrifices. So, the 4.5-inch display comes with an 840×480-pixel resolution, which is approximately 217 pixels per inch. We all know that more pixels will make the content look better on the screen, but not in this case. The new HTC Desire 520 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, but there are some doubts if the device will be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
This phone also has 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot situated under the back. Unfortunately, HTC Desire 520 lacks NFC, meaning that users will not be able to make mobile payments.
