HTC's good-looking low-cost phone

The HTC Desire 626 sure comes together as a piece of hardware. It looks more polished than most phones of its price, and feels solid in the hand.

Pearly backing

This white-and-navy shade I have has a pearlescent backing that gives it kind of a soft glow.

Details

Look closely at the volume rocker. That white accent around the button reveals HTC's typical attention to detail.

Camera

The 8-megapixel rear camera takes nice photos outdoors, and the 5-megapixel front-facing lens faithfully stands by for selfies.

Pocket pal

A 5-inch display makes this Desire 626 a fairly large device, but its proportions seem more streamlined than, say, the Motorola Moto G (late 2015). Find out more about the phone -- including if you should buy it -- in CNET's full HTC Desire 626 review.
