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.

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.

noHTC, 27 May 2016This is the worst cell phone I ever had. I reboots 5 -6 times during the day. HTC keep blaming... moreHtc is one of the best cell maker's out there they will solve any prob anyone might have with them i got a lg i just got and im already going to buy me another htc! They take care of there people unlike all the other company's
I have the Marshmallow 6.0.1 update for about a week now. I have the Boost variant with the 1.5 GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 210 processor. I find that the phone overall is much quicker and more responsive. The added animations make it a nicer experience as well.
The lag I was experiencing with the 5.1 OS has disappeared except on my I-Heart app, but even that one is a bit faster. I did get some more bloat ware I really do not intend to use like the Kids App, so I am left with about 2.0 GB of ROM as opposed to the 2.2 GB prior to the Marshmallow update. I chose to disable some of these new apps I will not use.
The "Do not Disturb" enhancements are very welcome. I can set up rules and multiple times (and days) to have the phone automatically silent or vibrate. In the past, I was confined to one time slot on one to seven days only. I will continue to update as I use the 626s more.
