HTC Desire 520: A cheap Android device that sacrifices too much (review)

 

The HTC Desire 520 has an appealing price, but it's not a phone you should buy.

The HTC Desire 520 is affordable and compact Android smartphone with loud front-facing speakers. It also includes a microSD card slot and user-replaceable battery.

The screen is dull, battery life is short, and the plastic casing feels cheap. There's a noticeable delay when switching between apps and scrolling through the home screen.

Don't be fooled by the Desire 520's low price. You can get a better-performing phone if you are willing to spend a little extra.

Review: HTC Desire 520

 

Whenever we hear the word “cheap” associated with a phone, we hit the deck, preparing ourselves for the onslaught of something awful. Can HTC's Desire 520 shake us from this feeling?

Relatively inexpensive 4G phone; Upgradeable storage; Surprisingly good battery life; Decent 4G speeds;

One of the slowest phones we've ever reviewed; Display is dismal;

Consumer review (cnet.com)

Not worth the $9.99

 

I needed a phone and didn't want to spend a fortune. I decided that the HTC Desire 520 sounded good as it came with a memory card that stored a huge amount of data. The rub is that the phone itself only has 4Mb of memory, and very little can be...

It's a phone, it's cheap

No memory, slow, many more cons than pros
