Reviews (6/10 Avg. rating)


Cnet

A good-looking device suffering from underwhelming performance

from Cnet

Unlike this year's other HTC devices, such as the Desire 816 or the flagship metal-clad One M8, the Desire 616 doesn't quite seem to stand out. While it has the good looks that HTC is known for, the phone's poor performance and older software means it isn't nearly as enticing.

There are better phones out there, such as the Redmi Note and the Asus ZenFone 5 that offer the same (or better) features at a much lower price point. You'd be much better off with those phones, as well as saving some money, especially if your budget is tight.
