It’s flocked with 1 GB Ram and has 16 GB inbuilt memory further it can be expanded to 32 GB. This dual GSM sim phone is powered by Android v4.4.2 KitKat and 1.7GHz octa-core processor.

Body & Design

The body is glossy, but as time trickles by, the color may start to peel away. The exterior part of this phone has created with plastic painted with colors, but the appearance is quite good from the front. The display is not that sturdy as a slight shot can break it. On the front, we see speakers at both ends to offer the best sound possible at this price range.


Rear camera flaunts an 8 MegaPixels attached near to led flash. It’s Capturing cool shots in 720 p at sunlight. Front 2 MP camera is suitable for capturing pictures too. Still, the quality might not meet your expectations as we cannot get all the ingredients at this price range, so we have to go for something else if looking for higher quality cameras.

Battery Performance

If we talk about its usage and performance, then you might notice the feel of its overheating issue after 3-4 hours of usage, but don’t take it too seriously as it is normal in low budget smartphones. When it comes to its battery, then it requires hours to get fully charged, but it will only happen when we play games and run the internet for hours.


Htc is useful for providing better smartphones in low budgets, too, but the specifications may vary, which can change your mind heavenly. HTC Desire 526G’s major drawback is its color, which fades away in time, and the battery life also demands more charging again and again. Overall it’s a nice phone when we keep our expectations relevant to its price. So we get what we pay.


The camera is good compared to the price,
