Pocketnow

Affordable, but it falls short of awesome

from Pocketnow

Typically, when we review a phone out here in the Pocketnow Utah offices, we carry our daily driver alongside the review device. This time, the review device was good enough, though not particularly fast, to accomplish all our daily activities. If you’re looking for a cheap phone that will do what you need it to – but not much else – the Desire 626 is worthy of your consideration.
