This phone is absolute garbage. Thought it was nice at first eoth a good HD display and a pretty big screen. After about 2 months it would randomly restart and it got worse. Started to do it more and then it would shut down and sometimes I couldn't get it on for about a half hour. After it would shut down and turn back on it would say "Optimizing apps x of xx. Which would take around 20 minutes. And now I am having an issue where none of the apps are working. They are always crashing. Camera quality also sucks. This phone is garbage, don't waste your money on it.
In my opinion if one is looking for a functional, non-luxurious, inexpensive phone; this phone will work great. However, with my experiences after about one month the phone began to act up, occasionally restarting randomly and my stock messaging app constantly crashing. Since then the issues have become more frequent and I have factory reset my phone about 4 times now trying to see if a fresh start will help. Not sure if I just got a bum phone but through what I've seen I
'd stay away from this phone.
this is amazing mobile phone i upgrade marshallow beutifull android set i am enjoying great app music games and many more i love it htc amazing
Beautiful device. Feels good in the hand, charges fairly fast, amazing brightness and camera. I would recommend this phone to many people. The only bad thing about it, is the battery.
I have two years and for a well my kids use it just for games. And also I had for a well it was 5.1 but upgraded 6.1 it got better. The worse is the battery you got charge it up all the time.

Samsung downgrade, 16 Jul 2016This is a cheap imitation of an android phone. I can't pick new text message ringtones. The te... moreHello, today I took the leap from a Samsung S5 to this HTC Desire 626s. This phone does run android. In fact HTC has significantly less bloatware compared to the S series. It could just be that you are used to the UI of Samsung. Google's Nexus phone runs pure android and boy can those babies fly. Overall the phone is fantastic for my needs. Remember that is it a $59.99(USD) phone and the new Samsung S7 is over $600(USD). There are going to be gives in this trade especially in regards to RAM and CPU clock speeds. The 720p display does give out vibrant colors and looks exceptional. The audio however is sub-par when compared to the ever so popular HTC One series front-facing speakers.
This is a cheap imitation of an android phone. I can't pick new text message ringtones. The text tones the come with the phone are horribly generic and low. The same goes for the notifications for the calendar. The colors for the themes are boring. It doesn't allow for scheduling text messages. It is difficult to block undesirable calls. I could go on, but the point is that there is too much wrong with this phone for it to be worth the money.

Anonymous, 26 Apr 2016My phone keeps restarting all the time out of nowhere sucksIf your phone restarts all the time I have to take it back and get another one that's what I did and if had my new one for about 3 months and it's great
AnonD-537487, 15 May 2016Anyone knows if HTC Desire 626S will get marshmallow update?If anyone wants to know how to get marshmallow on your htc desire 626s go to setting and go to software updates then click on it then you should find out theme rest easy and i love the htc desire 626s
I bought this phone last week. The design attracted me mostly, good display and configuration but battery drains so quick. I bought an HTC Incredible S five years ago that had the same problem. Now I realized HTC still could not work on battery performance. Whoever wants to buy this phone, get ready to charge it twice a day!
I love this cell phone. only thing i don't like about it is you have to turn on your mobile data to send and receive pictures.I know there are a few brands of phones that you can send and receive pictures without having data on at all. I wish htc desire 626s was one of them

I tried to install an Micro SD card to act as internal storage. It turns out that one must have a top of the line UHS Class 3 card to act as internal storage. Otherwise you are only able to use slower cards (like class 4) as removable storage. Ever since the Android upgrade to Marshmallow 6.0.1, the phone is more responsive in most areas and has a few more features than prior to the upgrade.
