HTC is one of the leading manufacturers of the smart phones based on Android and Windows OS. Now, it comes up with its new HTC Desire 600 which is dual-SIM mobile with all the high-end specs. The users who require a smart phone with dual-SIM capability can opt for HTC Desire 600. All the high-end specs and dual-SIM capability does really work out for this HTC brand smart phone? Let us find out.

Design :

The design and build quality seems somewhat as a prompt design of HTC One. This smart phone is totally wrapped with glossy plastic and this gives the phone a light weight. The body dimensions are 5.31 inches tall, 2.64 inches wide and 0.37 inches in thickness. This sleek smart device weighs about 130 g which provides utmost comfort and convenience to handle and use. They are available in two basic colors namely black and white.

It has a simple design and the rear part is crafted with a plastic chassis that contains camera lens along with LED flash on a metal strip. The removable plastic chassis has two SIM slots and a micro SD card slot under the chassis. The front side has two soft keys just like HTC One below the screen, a secondary camera and speakers above the screen. The physical buttons are arranged in a convenient way to ease the use of the users. The volume rocker is present on the right side, the top part is stocked with 3.5 mm head jack along with the power button and at the bottom the device has a micro USB charging port.

All together the design and look of the new HTC Desire 600 is fine and it is not one of the wow factors for any users who expect its design and build quality as to be like HTC’s flagship models.

Display :

The 4.5 inch Super LCD 2 touch screen is powered with quarter HD display (qHD). Though it is not that elegant as like other HTC smart phones the display stands to be as one of the above average displays. The display is quite impressive in some factors like crystal clear display, good sunlight legibility and the clarity is good while watching videos or any other stuff. The HTC Blink feed technology is another asset for the display customization of this smart phone.

Software and Hardware Specifications :

The new HTC Desire 600 runs on 4.1 Jelly Bean Android version and this is the latest version than any other HTC Dual-SIM handsets. The users would find the interface cool and funny to hang out with the apps and games. The HTC UI adds more flexibility and beauty to the interface which avails the user easy use.

The hardware specifications include 1.2 GHz Quad-core processor with Snapdragon chipset and 1 GB RAM together count for the high performance of the device. The internal memory is availed with 8 GB RAM which we think is not a big thing as for the present situation. Thanks for the card slot memory which benefits the HD movie lovers to utilize the expandable 64 GB memory of micro SD card.

Camera :

The 8 MP rear camera is features with 1.4 micro pixel size which is HTC’S best thing to do. This is power pack of the features like LED Flash, face detection, smile detection and many more exciting features. All together these constitute to provide excellent snapshots that make the pictures livelier. This suffers from the shutter delay that makes it low speed camera. The best shots can be seen as the best one through this camera. We can’t say this as one of the best HTC camera but this is good. The HTC Video high lights is a special feature that avails a 30-second continuous display of the photo gallery.

The secondary camera is of 1.6 MP size that gives an average quality during video chat or self shots. But comparing to VGA size camera this would be better thing to work with. The 720 p quality video capture is permitted which is fine to shoot a video.

Battery :

Under the chassis the handset consists of 1860 mAh Li-Ion removable battery. It has a good battery backup and the estimated talk time is about 11 hours. Heavy users should mind charging the device at least one time a day and for average users it may be more than a day.

Features :

We don’t think HTC Desire 600 has some spectacular features that would freak the users with their functionality. All the basic features like connectivity, sound and display are provided in this new handset. The connectivity features include WI-FI, Bluetooth, USB, GPRS and EDGE, NFC and Infrared connectivity. These are the basic features any user can expect in a smart phone now-a-days.

The entertainment section is fulfilled with the MP3, MP4 players and also exciting games. The display would support the gaming feature in more enthusiastic way. The sound system that is HTC Boom supported by Beats Audio sound system is the special attraction when you watch the videos, movies or play games. Enjoying the movies or games with excellent sound quality would be an awesome experience which you will gain it from this device.

The basic apps like calendar, clock, alarm etc are present along with the social networking apps like Facebook, twitter, Gmail, Google search and many other interesting apps. HTC Blink feed is a feature that provides customization of data on your home screen likes news, websites etc. All this together make this handset as a worthy smart phone.
