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.

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
I bought this phone today, OS 5.01, from Walmart. I would like to know if upgradable to Android 6.0?
Thinking about buying this phone today. I have the Desire 510 and I love it but I need to fix the screen and it would be a lot cheaper to just get a new phone. I've read a lot of reviews saying the phone shuts down several times on its own. I'm not sure. But Cricket only has the 626s or 520 for sale as far as HTC phones under $100. I dunno
Iphone, 15 Mar 2016Its ram not rom... what is rom?Read only memory
I prefer Htc desire 626 to samsung all model because of battery timing is good. So my all friends you should try to use HTC mobile

I bought the HTC Desire 626s (T-Mobile unlimited prepaid) within days of it being commercially available and I have never had any of the problems that some of you are experiencing. Sure it's not an iPhone or a Samsung but it gets the same job done (if I could root my device without bricking it I would) because I actively avoid frivolous apps. Moreover, in addition to installing a 64Gb SD card I installed GroVe IP (WiFi capable when I'm on the NYC Subway) which serves as an additional phone number for annoying pest. I also have Microsoft Office Mobile, two antivirus apps (Lookout, and 360 Security) 360 Security does a fantastic job keeping thing running smoothly -- Lookout is my backup A/V app, tTorrent because I can pirate movies, and music via public WiFi while on the go, VLC because it's the best media player out there (IMHO), TRULY Smart Device which links to my DZ09 (Samsung Gear 2 knockoff) smartwatch, Evernote Premium 7.7 for my digital work space, and my Google account wraps everything up nice and neat. And, sure I have Galaxy Legend, Maze Runner, Scorch Trials, and Space Fort to kill idle time. In a nutshell my HTC Desire 626s growls like a '66 Shelby GT350.

I honestly feel that people pay all this money for iphone and too be honest I can do the same crap with this cheaper phone that can be done with a apple phone or a samsung galaxy and so on. People spend more time playing Oh I got too have this expensive over priced phone that will out date in matter of months when the next hottest thing comes out. Your taking phone calls and sending a text why piss away good money.

I use Samsung headphones never had a issue. I don't know what people expect for $120.00 but I have been nothing more then satisfied with my phone since I bought it 4 months ago. Too me the only downfall is your stuck with i think its 8gb memory and some things you simply can't store too the added memory card but not been a problem for me. People who feel the need too load up there phones with apps like they running a desktop pc baffle me because half the apps people install they use once or twice and just leave them there.
In under a week,my HTC desire whatever has automatically shut down out of nowhere on multiple occasions. I do NOT recommend this phone people, it's very easy to tell that it's a budget phone

and you paid so cheap
now you want iphone which costs 5 times as much ..?
I purchased the HTC desire 626s phone for my boyfriend & I about six months ago & he hates it. He's always complaining about different things. First off, you need specific headphones for the phone. At first we didn't know so when we used regular headphones and our phone would crash or cut off what were watching & go to the internet or turn the volume up louder or lower. The phone basically has a mind of its own. His phone crashes now with or without headphones. I asked him if he dropped his phone, he said no. So.. That's weird. My speakers went out randomly & the phones aren't loud on the highest volume at all. The camera sucks. I rarely take any pictures anymore because the camera makes me look yellow. The camera lenses aren't clear. The phone doesn't hold much space for a bunch of Apps. Also,there are two speakers on the phone. There both located on the front (top) of the phone.Only one of the speakers work while watching media & the other one works only for making calls so I'm guessing that's why the volume is so low when I'm listening to music or watching a movie. The phone doesn't hold a battery at all. Our phones die at least 4 times a day. Something that's good about the phone is the size. I like the size of the screen but I'm really considering the new iPhone. This phone sucks. I payed $120 each. I don't think it's worth that much. Before these phones, we had the galaxy avant. Loved it! Everything about the Avant is the opposite if this phone except the screen being a little smaller & of course the camera sucks but its truly a great phon . The Avant. Earlie I mentioned needing specific headphones for the htc desire 626s, yeah, you need headphones with a mic in it. They can be found all over. I bought mine from CVS for 20 bucks. Anyways I hope this helps.
DHAMRAD, 24 Mar 2016 I bought HTC626 Desire about one month ago. I also purchased a phone cover separately. Every ... moreYou need to buy the wallet cover that you can slide upwards and slides the phome up exposing the camera clear off the cover. That way there's no glare from the cover as you are taking the picture. I've had this happen to me as well.
