HTC Desire 612 (CDMA) Reviews

HTC Desire 612 very good

Bought for $169 at Best Buy, day before Moto E released $99 for Verizon, ha ha, debating whether to exchange for moto E.

Pro's: way better than my 3 year old HTC Incredible 2 (though display color quality may not be as accurate).

- lollipop roadmap unknown, possible this handset will never get it (as my DINC2 never received 4.x update even though promosed), though my "sense" is it will eventually, but probably ok if it doesn't, if security updates supported for several years.
- biggest is only 1G internal Flash left after loading apps. Moto E supposedly has 1G more.
- Display bright, but has a greenish bias to me, and some weird color bleeding (I think, need to investigate)

4.4.3 OS running well, sounds like better than lollipop at this point in time. Stable zero crashes in 1 week, Snapdragon 400 seems fast enough operation for my needs.

Have not activiated yet, LTE signal level comparable to my current 3G signal level. Can't comment on call quality. I'd say I get a full day/12 hours out of battery.

Camera definitely updated version compared to my old one, Really would like OIS, but this is a $400 phone feature. Haven't tried, but claims slow motion video, 1080p resolution video, so on paper equal to or better than Moto E. Claimed 128G ext. Flash would allow for massive videos.

Verdict - for Verizon/US, arguably best under $200 option if it gets lollipop, Moto E clearly best value (faster CPU, better radio) and best option if NFC and LED flash unimportant. Will update review if I remember, whether I decide to get Moto E or not.
