i got this phone in July of 2014, and today February 2015. the phone is no longer use able i had it in a protective case and never got water on it. the phone battery went to crap the screen doesn't work and the wifi doesn't work either. do not bother with this peace of crap device.
Guys I bought it today.. I'm trying to upgrade the system to be 4.4.3 noting that the original system when I bought was 4.4.2
Also I want to root it, is there any easy way for that since I don't have laptop.
I bought the HTC Desire 601 last february, and I am very unimpressed. I bought it looking for a mobile more "Social" than a blackberry, which it was. However the phone didn't last my physical uses, the plastic casing has broken, the battery now has burn holes where the pins go, the screen shattered, the camera lens shattered. I feel that HTC is a great company and I was impressed at the beginning, but they need to make the physical phone better and not out of such cheap plastics.Overall the phone ran great though!
I have bought htc desire 601 since eight months, it is a perfect mobile in all its properties, and I don't upgrade it to kitkat version 4.4, battery capacity is great but I face on problem in main camera, it is too low quality I love htc company
Best phone ever i used it for 2 year it is a great phone i love htc company and now i am using htc one m8 gold. Great phone . No problem with htc company but i hate apple company no sincere service of apple ... I... Love....htc
My desire 601 has a wi-fi problem with the button it says it is connecting to the wi-fi but it is frozen.
For those who are facing battery drain & heating issues after updated Android system, backup your important data, then do the following
1) factory reset
2) wipe cache partition
Hope it helps...

I have had 3 htc phones and currently have the desire 601. Great phones, I love them. I have just had a system update and my battery charge has disappeared! My battery would normally need a charge every two days, now it needs a charge every two - three hours. Can anybody help!!!!!
A Bad decision to buy HTC. The phone is giving hardware and software problems with in 6 months. It is also getting hang and reboot by itself very often
After the kitkat update the performance of my battery got worse. I contacted HTC and they proposed to send it for repair.
Within 8 days I had my phone back. They installed an update and added a new battery. Perfect logistics and great service!
Up to now everything seems to work fine. My battery lastst for more than 2 days.
Whatever you do DON'T buy this phone. Piece of junk, had it for 6 months & already my battery was toast!!! Phone always freezing up & all in all just a cheap, bad purchase
john , 01 Sep 2013If it's under 200 dollars, will buy. If not, not worth it. John, my opinion is that the htc desire 601 ain't worth a plug nickle. If I could afford it, I'd gladly get an lg or samsung and through my piece of junk htc desire 601 in the trash after I shoot it with a 12 gauge shotgun.
1) Does the camera app have effects for the frontal one?
2) Does it have Romania language?
Thank you in advance.
