htc desire 628 dual sim

The Htc Desire 628 Dual Sim has some distinctly HTC traits about it, but its poor battery life, lacklustre camera and average performance, are deal breakers. If you’re looking for phones in this range, we’d recommend the LeEco Le 2, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and Moto G4 Plus over this. Let us review the htc desire 628 price.

HTC DESIRE 628 DUAL SIM DETAILED REVIEW

HTC decided to play the field this year. It’s doing so by bringing more budget devices, trying to hit the proverbial sweet spot in the Indian market. The HTC Desire 628 is one of those budget devices, priced at around Rs. 13,990. It takes on phones like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, LeEco Le 2, Moto G4 Plus and more. Like its big name counterpart Samsung, HTC’s phone is also specc’d lower than the regular budget players, but the company has proved in the past, that it can make the best of such specs. The Desire 628, however, is not its best work.

Build and Design

We’ve seen such designs from HTC before, and given the similarities in almost all of its competitors, this one’s refreshing. Yet, we’ve known better, especially from HTC.

On the one hand, the HTC Desire 628 may be considered “good looking”, one the other, it’s definitely not functional. The body is entirely made of glossy plastic and while it doesn’t have the sleek metallic shine, the blue accented sides go well with the white overall body, and you wouldn’t really call this a design that doesn’t belong in its segment.

Having said that, glossy plastic makes this phone incredibly slippery. This increases even more if you’re sweating, or have generally sweaty hands.

HTC’s Boomsound speakers are on the front (top and bottom). The front camera rests on the left side of the top speaker, while the sensor hub is below it, bang on the middle of the top bezel.

One has to appreciate the symmetry in the bezels above and below the display, but it makes the phone bigger than it needs to be. To be clear, the HTC Desire 628 is in no way too big, nor is it heavy, at only 141 grams (according to our measurements), but it could have been smaller. The bottom bezel especially feels useless since the phone neither has a fingerprint sensor, not capacitive buttons.

However, what’s most irksome to us, along with the glossy back, are the thick bezels on the sides of the display. While most are trying to reduce display size, even in this range, HTC’s thick bezels make the 5 inch screen feel far smaller than it is. The company has been a pioneer and expert in design, which makes this all the more surprising.

Lastly, you’ll find the 13 MP rear camera on the top left of the back, with a circular flash below it. HTC has also placed the noise cancellation mic next to the camera, while the micro-USB port and headphone jack are at the bottom and top, respectively.

Overall, we’d say that while the Desire 628, though tightly packed and well built, isn’t the design we’re used to seeing in this price segment anymore.

htc desire 628 display

As we mentioned above, the Desire 628 has a 5 inch display. HTC chose to go with a mere 720p panel, though, presumably to reduce its own costs. This results in a 294ppi pixel density, and if you look close, you will see a lack of sharpness.

But, while the sharpness element would be evident to a very keen eye, one can’t escape the fact that this is a dim display. We found the maximum luminance to be at around 231 lux, which is much lower than the 700+ readings we’ve seen earlier.

Furthermore, the brightness drops when viewed from certain angles. The colours remain the same, but the brightness deteriorates.

Speaking of colours, the Desire 628 isn’t the best in that department either. The blacks aren’t deep, and overall colour fidelity is lax. You will see a hue in bright res colours, most likely caused by the backlights. It’s easily discernible by filling the screen with the red colour at full brightness.

All of this, combined with the fact that the screen is also reflective and doesn’t have the Gorilla Glass feel, makes the Desire 628’s display, rather mediocre.

UI, Operating System and Storage

While HTC’s Sense UI has its fans, the Desire 628 ellicits criticism here as well. It runs on Sense 7.0 meaning, which is the older version of Sense now. On top of that, the phone itself runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop, still, which is a bummer. Some may also find the lack of OTG support a drawback.

Performance

It is here that HTC has done a better job than the rest of the phone. While it runs on the year-old MediaTek MT6753 octa-core SoC, clocked at 1.3Ghz, HTC is churning out the best out of it. Yes, the phone is still underpowered to its competitors, but you’re looking at better performance than some others in this range.

On regular performance, load times are high, but not annoyingly so. It has 3GB of RAM, which is managed well enough to satisfy light users. If you generally use your phone just to take calls, check email and browse a bit, the Desire 628 os smoother than a Samsung Galaxy J5, but no match to the LeEco Le 2, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 or Lenovo Zuk Z1.

Playing heavy games also doesn’t bring it to its knees very easily. The performance is still average, but consistently so. You get high enough frame rates on games like Asphalt 8 and Injustice: Gods Among Us, to not be completely annoyed, but the phone does tend to heat up easily as well. In an air-conditioned room, at about 22 degrees room temperature, the Desire 628 reached 42.3 degree celsius after three races on Asphalt 8. It doesn’t heat up on regular usage, but the smoother performance on games etc. seems to come at a price.

Create bar charts

Overall, the processor performance is about 30% higher than a Snapdragon 410, but bang in the middle of that, and a Snapdragon 615. By extension, this puts it far behind a Snapdragon 650.

Camera

The 13MP camera on the back of the HTC Desire 628 is yet another let down. While colours are fine, it loses details in almost every shot you take. Low light shots are mostly unusable, and the camera takes a long time to focus, irrespective of what light you’re shooting in. Also, like older HTC phones, the camera app takes quite long to open as well.

HTC has done a fine job with the HTC 10 recently, and both the HTC One A9 and One X9 have respectable cameras. In light of that, it’s disappointing that at least some of that hasn’t carried over to its budget devices.

Battery

Perhaps none of the above concerns hurt the Desire 628’s chances as much as its battery life. It has a 2200 mAh battery, and it lasts for a mere 7 hours on the Geekbench 3 battery test. 5-7 minutes of gaming can drop about 10-12% battery, depending on the game. To make it simpler, we saw 12% battery drop after three races on Asphalt 8.

On regular usage, we had to charge the phone twice, while heavier usage led to charging three times in a day. Games can drop the battery quite fast, as can videos. You’re looking at continuous screen on time of at best 3 hours, at full brightness.

Bottomline

The HTC Desire 628 is an attempt from HTC at regaining its lost market share, but it doesn’t seem like the phone to do it. If you’re buying in this range, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Moto G4 Plus, LeEco Le 2, are all better options. The Desire 628 doesn’t justify the price tag, and though HTC has done well to optimise performance, it still falls behind.

OnePlus has shifted itself from budget manufacturer to competing with top-tier brands. Top quality internal components deliver awesome Android speeds, with 5G for those looking for next-gen connectivity too. 

But on the software front, OnePlus wins over some rivals in offering a cleaner take on Android, avoiding bloat and clutter while keeping its phones running fast and smooth. While the camera has been a weakness for OnePlus in the past, the 8 Pro is a lot more complete, with useful cameras giving a competitive showing for themselves. This is backed up with fast charging, great battery life and a great display.

Samsung Galaxy S20+

Samsung’s experience pours into the S20 family, with the + model having the size and clout to cut it as one of the best phones around. It has oodles of power, good battery performance and a great display, all efficiently packed into a tidy handset package. There’s 5G for connectivity – which makes this phone a little more expensive – but also some great work happening with the camera.

The Galaxy S20+ betters the S20 Ultra offering better value for money and a more consistent camera performance escaping some of the gimmicks of the Ultra. That sees good zoom performance and quality images across the board. But the Galaxy S20+ is really tied together by the software experience, which is the best of the skinned Android versions out there.

Samsung’s Galaxy S20 FE takes the best parts of its flagship phones, replaces the back with plastic, flattens the display and drops the price. The result? The flagship experience that’s easier on the pocket, with no real disadvantages.

The cameras are great, avoiding the gimmicks, while the 5G version – the one you want – has loads of power. There’s great speakers, a 120Hz display for smooth gaming and the option to expand the storage via microSD. What’s not to like?

The 2020 iPhone 12 Pro introduces a fresh new design, boosting screen protection and enhancing the cameras on the rear of the handset. The addition of a LiDAR sensor is designed to boost depth perception, while the camera gets boosts to night mode, offering more skills across all the cameras.

With powerful innards and the introduction of 5G, this is a phone that’s designed to be future proof.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 repeats most of the experience of the S20+ but in a slightly smaller package. That means it still offers a great display, lots of power and decent battery life – but it’s also boosted by offering a 4G only model, meaning the price can drop a little lower than some of the 5G rivals on this list. 

Again you have great build and software, but you also have a fairly compact phone that doesn’t compromise on what it’s offering – and that’s a top-tier smartphone experience.

Oppo Find X2 Pro

Oppo has been progressively improving its devices and adding appeal, with the Find X2 Pro being the most accomplished so far. There’s loads of power and a really great display, topped off with a great camera experience. It’s the zoom that really appeals, but supported by a strong showing in other areas too, although it’s not the best in low light. 

It’s a little on the expensive side, however, considering the OnePlus 8 Pro is similar and cheaper, and the software experience offered by ColorOS isn’t as widely appreciated as OnePlus or Samsung’s offering. Still, there’s a lot that this Pro handset has to offer.

Google’s 2020 line-up is slightly confusing with the Pixel 4a 5G offering better value and equal performance to the Pixel 5. It misses out on some premium features, but it offers an experience that’s close to flagship.

The cameras are excellent – class leading – while the pure Android user interface avoids unnecessary additions and tweaks and means you’re at the front of the upgrade queue.

The iPhone 12 takes a slight step-up above the iPhone 11, adding 5G into the mix for next-gen connectivity, while also moving the display to an OLED panel – the same as the iPhone 12 Pro. 

The main camera is joined by an ultra-wide lens, which means that while it doesn’t have the zoom functions of the 12 Pro, it offers much the same experience. With all this crammed into a new design, it’s a great phone.

The OnePlus 8T swings in to update OnePlus’ regular flagship model, here really pushing value for money, while still delivering a flagship experience. It has a good display with 120Hz refresh rate and loads of power.

The cameras aren’t the best, with a little more crammed in than you’ll bother to use – but with a big battery and really, really, fast charging, there’s no worries about battery life.

The Google Pixel 4a is a mid-range device, affordably priced and making some cuts to match its positioning. That means you have a smaller display and a plastic body, with mid-range Snapdragon 730 hardware. 

But there’s no lack of power for daily tasks, no lack of refinement in the pure Android experience that it offers – and there’s a class-leading camera on the rear of this phone. It might only offer one lens, but it manages to produce better images from that one camera than most of the devices on this list. The downside is that the screen is pretty small.

The OnePlus Nord is part of a new generation of Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 devices, offering 5G at mid-range prices. There are a few cuts to match this new mid-range positioning, but very few compromises.

What the Nord delivers is a big display, premium build and plenty of power at a fraction of the price of flagship devices. When it comes to value for money, the Nord is right up the list. There’s very little it can’t do.

Moto has long offered great phones in the Moto G family and adding 5G to the mix through Snapdragon 765 results in a great handset. It’s one of the best devices in this category thanks to its affordable pricing and clean software.

It’s build isn’t as premium as some – and half the cameras are really wasting space – but there’s no questioning bang for your bucks.

The Mi 10 Lite is another Snapdragon 765 phone, meaning excellent value for money, while offering 5G and performance that’s close to a flagship phone. 

It might not be to all tastes as the camera is a little over-sold on the rear while the software isn’t the cleanest you’ll find. But it’s still a great smartphone experience for the price.

The cheapest phone on this list and the lowest positioned in terms of specs, the Moto G8 Power earns its place through one significant virtue: it’s easily the longest lasting phone in terms of battery life. That not only comes down to the huge capacity, but the efficiency of the components Motorola uses. 

Importantly, this isn’t just a huge battery: Motorola has designed a budget star with bags of appeal, from the punch hole display through to the big display that it sits in. Sure, it can’t compete in overall power or camera performance, but if you want the reassurance of knowing your phone will last longer than you do, the Moto G8 Power has a lot to offer.

The 2020 version of the iPhone SE sells itself in one major area: power for the money. If anything, this phone equipped with the same core hardware as Apple’s top phones makes those other devices look more expensive than they need to be. 

The downside is that you get a 2017 designed phone with a display that hasn’t moved forward. It’s probably the only 16:9 phone that’s launched in the last two years. But what you do get is access to the Apple iPhone at prices that are hard to match – and undercutting many rivals in terms of price in the process.

The Samsung Galaxy Note has always been the phone for those who want a stylus. In 2020 there are two versions, the Ultra and the slightly more understated regular Note 20. And it’s this regular version that we prefer. 

As far as stylus devices go, there’s nothing that can match the Galaxy Note, but paired with powerful hardware, 4G or 5G options, a great display and the slickness of Samsung’s One UI, it’s a great phone.
