I have the 626s for about five months now and I note the following:
1. The Boost Variant got an upgrade to the HTC Sense (7.0) where there is a few more options that there were prior to the update.
2. The 720 x 1280 display is good, but it is a battery drain when the screen is on for long periods of time.
3. The supplied ringtones are not that loud. I DL some off Zedge and it is a bit better.
4. The earpiece volume is good, especially on a "HD" call.
5. The earphone jack is sensitive, if you move the plug the audio is muted.
Ty Weeze, 22 Apr 2016Thinking about buying this phone today. I have the Desire 510 and I love it but I need to fix ... moreMy wife's had it for almost a year with no "reboot" issues, ever. She plays games on it, texts, regulars calls, MMS, etc. and never had any issues with it. It's the one she has now and her only complaint is the battery dies faster than she likes, but she keeps Wi-Fi and other crap on constantly and these things drain the battery. Otherwise, she loves it, for the record. Just my two cents worth. :-)
MiszMoody, 03 May 2016I just upgraded through Metro PCS from an LG K7, and so far I absolutely love my HTC.I haven't... moreActually,the LG K7 is a really good phone (kinda lame screen resolution, considering) that is not as bad as your making it out to be. Specs wise, depending, it's on par with the 626s, i.e. better cameras, UI system, etc. point being, it's not really an "upgrade" to go from a K7 to a 626s. For the record, I have a K7 and my wife has a 626s. We've both compared the two and think both have pros and cons, but depending on what you use it for, they are basically equal. Just my opinion, not that it matters. :-)
VERY DISAPPOINTED. The phone seems stripped down. i WAS WRONG, to assume this phone was as good as the htc i had in past. This is probably the last htc i will buy. I should have gottent the similar Samsung or LG. Disappointing photo editor. NO notes app. Calendar is unreadable to me. This is just from my first week. OH some stupid stuff, like time zone gsm near top on items in calendar. THIS IS DEFINATELY A STEP DOWN for me.
Gotta disagree with you on the battery for the HTC 626S. Mine will go 3 days easy.
You probably have an app running in the background thats draining it.
Anonymous, 09 May 2016The battery on this phone is bad. In the morning it's at 100%, then at the end of the day it's... moreyou would rather have an lg leon than an htc desire 626s huh? I work for a cell phone provider that has the same unit as the leon but with a different name and my jaw about dropped when i saw that youd rather have a leon over the 626s. the leon is garbage. I know any other people associated with boost/sprint = leon, at&t/cricket wireless = risio, knows how superior the htc is. You speak from raw emotion instead of an informed position. Look it up bro, the Htc is far better
I practice keeping items such as the 4G, Wi-Fi, GPS turned off or on battery saver mode and I find that my battery usage runs me about 40%-50% Daily with moderate usage. Hope that this helps.
The battery on this phone is bad. In the morning it's at 100%, then at the end of the day it's at least 14% and i don't use it very much. I wish i had gotten the lg leon instead.
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2016what you expect for $ 120 - ( Mercedes AMG ) and you paid so cheap now you want iphone wh... moreI buy this phone one week and from lg. I really feel this phone is not so good for me and wish the company can make some change. Firstly,This is phone have a so tiny flash notify. I almost nevery see this tiny flash when drivering.i habe to chech my phone every 5minus self. It is so annoying compare with LG big flash notice.second, i feel this phone response so sleep when press any key,it is feel like something stick on screen. This is phone! i really hope it can response me quickly when i want to call or text someone. Even it have many other functions, it will be garbage except a good call function. Finally, this phone update so much defaultly.i almost believe engineers is kiding customers. Why do they make so many upgrade and i never feel any change on phone. maybe i this phone is so cheaper but if i can choise angain, i will not cuoise this phone. hope some engineers see this and make some changes.
I just upgraded through Metro PCS from an LG K7, and so far I absolutely love my HTC.I haven't had any crashing or freezing issues, the speakers aren't as loud as I'd like them to be but I mostly use headphones anyway. I recommend this phone to anyone. Of course, I upgraded from a pretty crappy phone, but I've always had galaxy notes. Even still I'm impressed with the HTC.
This phone has serious problems with "self-made" nano-sims. Even if you cut the cards with a machine, the phone will still not recognize it. "Native" nanos work.
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2015You're pathetic if you have to return a phone because of the camera!Any you are a sad sack if you are willing to accept whatever crap is thrown at you.
This is the Worst phone I have ever owned since my last IPhone.
First off, I have had this phone for nearly 2 weeks and there has not been a day it did not required an update...which leads to numerous reboots. making the phone a brick for the duration. When I do get to use it I have to spend my time deleting, stopped or otherwise weeding out the HTC crapware slowing the system down....and then...there is google.
I hate crapple but google is a close second. Plug a headphone in google voice kicks on and shuts it off with any bump or headphone wire twist. Turn off all google voice settings and it still happens. It also randomly happens while ON the phone. This is an issue that HTC and google have known about for FIVE YEARS...but nothing is done. My options are to root the phone or....download a 3rd party app to fix what HTC and google are not willing to.
Maybe I might like this phone.....if I could actually use it...let's see....yup...updating again!
I've always used android but this is the worst phone I have ever seen...which is saying something...because...Crapple.
worst fun ever to load pictures from text and forward to friends. ugly.
Ty Weeze, 22 Apr 2016Thinking about buying this phone today. I have the Desire 510 and I love it but I need to fix ... moreI have had this 626s for a month now it works flawless just a few issues learning how to move pics to the SD card but if you disable some of the HTC useless apps it makes the phone alot faster and I'm playing hitman on it which is a high caliber game and the 1.5 RAM helps in this aspect input tempered glass and a case which gives it a solid feel strongly recommend this product
