The HTC Desire 600 dual sim is built around a 4.5" Super LCD2 display of qHD resolution (960 x 540 pixels). The pixel density clocks in at 245 ppi, which is ok for a midranger.
Of course, the midrange is already home to some 720p-resolution smartphones out there, but the Desire 600 dual sim has to live with its resolution due to the entry-level GPU that's inside.

Putting the resolution aside, the Desire 600 dual sim display has great viewing angles and reasonably good colors too.
Indeed, colors are a tad washed out and not as saturated as the ones on the HTC One mini, for instance, but on their own, they look just fine. The white balance on the Desire 600 mini is a bit too cold (bluish) to our taste, while the contrast isn't anything to write home about either.
