HTC, the Taiwanese manufacturer of smartphones and tablets, is one of the leading competitors today in the smartphone market.

In addition to all these features, it also offers a very strong battery backup so that you have a whale of a time with your HTC.

Operating system and UI

This handset at first glance looks like a tweaked version of last year's One X but certainly, the applications and softwares provided with this model make it an entirely different smartphone. The design looks flawless with rubberized polycarbonate shell surrounding the 4.5-inch qHD screen. The overall structure fits very nicely and comfortably in your hand providing thus you a good grip over it. This model has raised volume keys as compared to One X and definitely, it is a thoughtful cosmetic change for many consumers as raised volume keys make it very convenient to control the level of sound coming from your device. The dimensions of 134.5 x 66.7 x 9.9mm and a weight of 130 grams clearly suggest that it can easily fit into any pocket and working on it for long continuous hours won't make your fingers feel tired. As already mentioned above, this handset offers a 4.5 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen, which provides a screen resolution of 540 x 960 pixels and a pixel density of 245 pixels per inch. Since it supports 16M colors, you will always enjoy a bright and a clear on-screen view.

This dedicated unit works together to prevent lagging or time lapsing to the fullest. A large amount of files can be stored in its 8GB internal memory and is a plus point for people who are in the habit of building a large collection. HTC Desire 601 also has a provision of augmenting the memory by adding an external memory up to 64GB, if in case your data overflows, by equipping the set with a microSD card slot.

Other Features

HTC Desire 601 comes bundled with many preloaded features and applications. Some of these include Accelerometer, proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, HTML5 enabled browser, A-GPS support with GLONASS, ava MIDP emulator, SNS integration, Dropbox (25 GB storage), Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic, DivX/XviD/MP4/H.263/H.264/WMV player, MP3/eAAC+/WMA/WAV/FLAC player, Google Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Calendar, Google Talk, Organizer, Document viewer, Photo viewer/editor, Voice memo/dial/commands, and Predictive text input. You also have an access to many other applications and games (Temple Run and F1 Race) via Android market and Google Play Store.


What is the use of so many fantastic features if your smartphone tends to die in the middle of the day? Just to prevent this situation, HTC Desire 601 is equipped with a removable 2100mAh battery which promises to provide a talk time of up to 12.8 hours for 3G and a standby time of up to 440 hours (for 3G).

Other Features

Running on dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, this smartphone rivals many competing brands. Some of the rivals include Samsung Galaxy Grand, which runs on Android 4.1.2 whereas HTC Desire 601 is gifted with the latest Android 4.2.2 (after Android 4.3). Where Nokia Lumia 521 offers 512MB of RAM, HTC Desire 601 brings to you 1GB of RAM. Moreover, the former set offers only 1000MHz processor speed whereas the latter handset (HTC Desire 601) offers 1400MHz of processor speed. Samsung Galaxy Core on an average provides 9 hours of talk time on 3G whereas HTC Desire 601 on an average offers 12.80 hours of talk time on 3G. If we compare these two sets on the basis of their processor speed, the former set offers 1200MHz which is certainly less than that provided by HTC Desire 601 (mentioned above).
