The Good The HTC Desire 610 has an affordable price tag, its camera isn't too bad and its navy-blue, plastic body is quite fun.
The Bad It has a very disappointingly low resolution display that's not too bright either. Its processor and Android version are the same as the considerably cheaper Motorola Moto G. Its battery is only adequate.
The Bottom Line The HTC Desire 610 may be affordable, with an iPhone 5C-style plastic body, but its mediocre specs and poor screen resolution mean it's still not a good buy. For much less money you can grab the 4G Motorola Moto G, which has the same processor, Android KitKat software and a higher resolution display.
A cheap Android KitKat phone, with a fun design and 4G LTE
Thestormed its way to a glowing review from CNET editor Brian Bennett thanks to its ultra-luxurious metal design, superb high-definition screen and oodles of power. It's a formidable flagship phone, and comes with a price to match. If your budget is a little smaller, but you still want the HTC name in your jeans, cast your eyes over the Desire 610.
Like the M8, it has the dual, front-facing BoomSound speakers, 4G LTE and the same attractive, easy to use Sense 6 software. It has a plastic, rather than metal, body though and has drastically cut-down specs in order to keep the price down.
The Desire 610 can be picked up now, SIM-free, directly from HTC's site in the UK for £240 (which converts to $410 or AU$440). It's yet to be given an official launch date in the US and Australia, but it's expected to hit the US, at least, in the next month.
