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.

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.
I bought HTC626 Desire about one month ago. I also purchased a phone cover separately. Every time I take a picture, the colour of the phone cover reflects on to the picture which I have just taken. How do I stop colour of phone cover reflecting PLEASE. ?
I just bought a purple cover for my HTC 626 Desire. Every time I take a picture , the pictures keeps coming out all purple. What can I do. It spoiling my photographs
I've owned my HTC 626s for about a month now I purchased it because I damaged my HTC 816 and it was all I could find fast in my area, but so far it been OK meaning no problems. Believe me it's not the phone my 816 was but it is a good phone for the price. I noticed a number of you have been experiencing freeze up problems but I haven't seen that with mine.
Iphone, 15 Mar 2016Its ram not rom... what is rom?Read-Only Memory, every device has some ROM these days it often stores firmware and parts of the O.S. for recovery purposes
T-Mobile version is ugly. Why a Carousel Reddish Orangeish Pinkish accent mixed with Grey? With a Blue, Silver or Black accent, you would have had me.
AnonD-214341, 30 Jan 2016I have had the 626s for a month now. I am pleased for the most part. I will first comment on t... moreI agree with your review. I also have the boost phone and only paid $86 after tax for it. I did a phone upgrade cause I had the desire 510 and after all the update and such I couldn't no longer do any updates or download apps. I feel like its a good deal for the price and I have the model with 1.5 ram and 8gb rom as well. I guess you only have the 4gb rom?
I do have problems with the phone freezing or restarting but only like once a day and sometimes it doesn't happen at all. I send a crash report but if I had to suspect it's probably has a lot to do with Google's new phone version lollipop.
I wish google would figure it out and quit doing a new release so fast.
I've had the HTC desire for 3 weeks....I have to restart it at least four times a day, if not more, just to send a text message. It is constantly saying I don't have service even though I have full bars. Worst phone I've ever owned. I will never own an HTC again.
horrible phone, like the look and feel but constantly shuts off, blue line, speaker phone not good, i give it a 1...this phone is horrible, wish it wasn't
My Fiance bought me the Htc desire, not even two full days ago. Within the past 30 minutes my phone has crashed 4 times; the last was accompanied by an ear piercing beep that lasted for a minute. It's never been dropped plus Ive only downloaded one app so far and I receive a "Memory storage full" memo. So far im not pleased with this phone at all, my little Lg net 10 phone is so much better never had one technical issue with it and that thing has been dropped several times.
I got this phone after Christmas 2015 and it wouldnt turn on after a month of having it...I returned it and got another htc desire 626s...i started reading reviews on it and most of the reviews said the phone stopped working after a month....so i gave this new phone another try and its now been a month and it shut off and will not turn on again....long story short dont buy this phone!
