HTC announced its mid-range Desire 610 a few months back at the Mobile World Congress 2014. It could be one of the best mid-range Android handsets available in the market at the moment.
Starting today, users residing in the US can get their hands on the HTC Desire 610 from AT&T for just $0.99 tied to a two-year contract. If you don’t want to sign up a new contract, you can even get the handset for $199.99 outright — you’ll still be locked to AT&T. The device is also available on AT&T Next program, starting as low as $8.34.
The HTC Desire 610 comes with a 4.7-inch display sporting a resolution of 540 x 96- pixels with a 234 ppi pixel density. Under the hood, there’s a quad-core Snapdragon 400 SoC clocked at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM.
Other features include 8GB of internal memory, microSD card slot, a 8MP camera for photos and videos, 1.3MP front-facing camera, a 2,040 mAh battery and runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Sense 5.5UI. It may come as a disappointing news that it features Sense 5.5, but HTC could bring the latest Sense 6 to its mid-range devices as well.
The handset does look good on paper, but there are some worthy alternatives available as well, such as the Moto G. It may lag in terms of design, but has a lot to offer when you take into account its price.
So, anyone planning to purchase the HTC Desire 610 from AT&T?
