T. BALAKRISHNAN, 24 Jan 2016I purchased HTC 626 desire 6 months back. I do not know how to copy songs from the computer ... moreYa I was having this having as well, to fix just unlock the phone and access is granted on the PC
answer1, 27 Jan 2016Change the cables. You need data cable. Google it.I don't have this particular phone but with my old HTC Desire you had to change the PC connection in settings. You need to change the default from "charge only" to "Disk Drive"
I initially chose one of these over a Samsung Galaxy grand prime (one of 3 budget phones my carrier supplies). This phone has a nicer, higher-resolution screen, A7 vs A5 processor, is lighter, thinner and way better looking -- and has a more attractive default theme to boot. Then after trying two of them (new, right out of box) in 2 days I took it back and went with the "inferior" Samsung. Why? The Desire crashes ... often and randomly when using it (I'm not sure if there is a pattern, but I think it happens most during or after playing video). It's been nearly a year -- no fixes or updates from HTC on a problem they *could not possibly have missed* at the release date. I suspect they'll never bother, and this is a deal breaker. The audio is also a bit too quiet. The Samsung is rock stable and a has a few usability additions such as the ability to easily close applications individually, and a somewhat more spaced out on-screen keyboard, which hints of more thought and testing. The Samsung isn't as good a phone hardware-wise (although it does look less fragile), but the stability (not to mention more care in setting up the operating system) makes it better bet in my world.
Just purchased the phone 3 days ago, Considering the price I'm happy with the phone! I understand it's not a $500.00 phone. Bottom line so far so good! The pic. quality complaints seem a little far fetched to me, However I think the flashlight app. is excellent!
I have had the 626s for a month now. I am pleased for the most part. I will first comment on the speakerphone. The audio and volume on the speakerphone are lower than normal, I can barely hear it even in a quiet room. The earpiece audio is pretty good especially on an HD call.
The HD display (720 X 1080) with the 294 ppi is quite sharp and vibrant. It really makes my weather apps like radar look real crisp. The colors are nice as well. HTC has it labeled as a Super LCD screen. I wish there was Gorilla Glass on it. I opted on a shatter proof screen protector and a hard shell case.
The 1.5 GB of RAM really makes the phone snappy. I would of liked to see something better than the Snapdragon 210 processor, like the 410. But it seems to handle my apps very smoothly with hardly any lag. Being that this is the Boost Mobile variant, there was a lot of bloat ware. They advertise 3.5 GB of user ROM, but in reality it is about 2 GB once I disabled all the non-installable apps and added the few apps (about 10) that I installed.
The cameras are not bad. The rear 8 MP is decent, a bit grainy though. The front 2 MP is fair and does what I need it to. The auto focus could be better, but like another reviewer pointed out, this is not a $600.00 phone.
The battery when the phone is on standby in a strong signal area lasts longer than I expected. When I have the HD screen on long, I notice the battery will drain rapidly. I also keep the 4G, GPS, and Wi-Fi off to help conserve battery life. For the most part, I use 40%-50% battery daily which I feel is better than average for the HD screen it has.
I hope someone can benefit from my review. I welcome any feedback.

It's a very good phone for the price. To everyone cursing it: please be realistic as this is not a $600 phone, so do not expect it to perform as the best of the best. For movies use h.264 up to 720 at 30 fpm, lower for 1080. Do not expect a smooth play of .mkv weighing 10+ Gb. Kill the apps for longer battery life. The camera is not RED dragon but very usable, given that your hands are not shaking. The wifi at 30 feet behind a wall, 2.4GHz n with 10 strong signal networks on the channel gives about 30 mbps, which is just fine. Good job HTC solid and not expensive enough to be afraid to loose the freaking thing.
I purchased HTC 626 desire 6 months back. I do not know how to copy songs from the computer through cable. Whenever I connect my phone to my laptop it is only charging and I cannot enter into my phone through PC.
Klaartronics, 05 Jan 2016Actually it looks like there are two speakers on the face side of the phone, when the truth is... moreDude, the top one is the speaker so that you can hear the person that calls you...

I haven't dropped it or anything. I will definitely be contacting HTC to see what they can do. It has to be a manufacturer's defect.

I purchased the 626s from Boost Mobile. I feel the display of 720 X 1080 HD is pretty good, though I do notice the battery drains quickly if the screen is kept on too long. The standby time on the 2000Mah Battery is excellent. I turn off the 4G, Wi-Fi, GPS, and etc. which only cost me 15% of may battery in a 24 hour span with light usage.
The earpiece audio is fair. I think it should be a bit louder for outdoor use. I have not tried the speakerphone yet, I will follow up. The ringtones could be a bit louder as well. I recommend a screen protector and case. I will follow up with a comprehensive review in a week or two.
had enough, 18 Dec 2015i purchased the htc desire a week ago it freezes constantly shuts off by it self has blue line... moreI'm also having problems with HTC assistance! I've had HTC phones for a while and decided to switch to the desire. Almost immediately the phone wasn't responding on certain places and seriously lagging. I'm very dissatisfied and disappointed in HTC
