Good Mid-Budget Phone.
By William Unger | 17 May 2016
I have had the 626s for four months now. I am pleased for the most part. I will first comment on the speakerphone. The audio and volume on the speakerphone are lower than normal, I can barely hear it even in a quiet room. The earpiece audio is pretty good especially on an HD call. The HD display (720 X 1280) with the 294 PPI is quite sharp and vibrant. It really makes my weather apps like radar look real crisp. The colors are nice as well. HTC has it labeled as a Super LCD screen. I wish there was Gorilla Glass on it. I opted on a shatter proof screen protector and a hard shell case. The 1.5 GB of RAM really makes the phone snappy. I would of liked to see something better than the Snapdragon 210 processor, like the 410. But it seems to handle my apps very smoothly with hardly any lag. Being that this is the Boost Mobile variant, there was a lot of bloat ware. They advertise 3.5 GB of user ROM, but in reality it is about 2 GB once I disabled all the non-installable apps and added the few apps (about 10) that I installed. The cameras are not bad. The rear 8 MP is decent, a bit grainy though. The front 2 MP is fair and does what I need it to. The auto focus could be better, but like another reviewer pointed out, this is not a $600.00 phone. The battery when the phone is on standby in a strong signal area lasts longer than I expected. When I have the HD screen on long, I notice the battery will drain rapidly. I also keep the 4G, GPS, and Wi-Fi off to help conserve battery life. For the most part, I use 40%-50% battery daily which I feel is better than average for the HD screen it has.
