Excerpt: Although one of the most graceful looking smartphones in the market, the HTC Desire 601 dual SIM is just overpriced for the features it offers and doesn't even give a groundbreaking performance either. One could easily go for a much faster and better equipped smartphone at the same price range.
Summary: The HTC desire 601 is another middle/average end HTC phone. The phone performance is good and the display screen size is also nice. Nevertheless, the quality of displayed content will not be the best and the camera quality takes a less than average score.
Conclusion: The HTC Desire 601 is a solid and stylish - if ultimately average - mid-range phone, aimed squarely at the pockets of those who want a respectable device but don't want to (or can't) stump up for a flagship.
Conclusion: The HTC Desire 601 is a good mid-range phone with a reasonably powerful processor and a surprisingly good camera, though it's let down a little by its less-than-HD screen. Despite its many good points however, it struggles to distinguish itself from the Moto G , the elephant that's been dropped into...
Summary: HTC’s Desire 601 is an interesting smartphone, if only because the company has taken a lot of what made the HTC One extremely good and thrown it into a mid-range phone.
Pros: Like a slightly cheaper version of the excellent HTC One handset, Fast 4G, Supports expandable memory, something we wish both the HTC One and HTC One Mini would, Still features the HTC BoomSound speakers on the front, meaning the sound from the phone is loud
Cons: Plastic body, One day battery life, Mediocre camera that isn't up to the "Ultrapixel" quality set out by the HTC One, No NFC, No infrared
Summary: HTC has of late been focusing on the mid-segment smartphone market. The company has launched a number of devices in its Desire range targeting the consumer who is looking for a value for money proposition. One of these is the Desire 601.
Excerpt: The HTC Desire 601 offers consumers many of the features found on HTC's flagship phone – the HTC One – while keeping a more budget price. Although it lacks the metal finish of the One, reviewers still find the rubberized plastic finish to be both attractive and relatively durable.
Pros: 5MP camera produces good quality images, Decent processor performance when using apps and browsing the web, 4G LTE connection
Cons: Only 4.68GB of usable onboard storage, Slow screen response, Display suffers from washed out colors
HTC Desire 601 pictures and hands-on: A mid-ranger that sounds good?

Conclusion: The HTC Desire 601 is a nice enough Android smartphone and what it has managed to snatch from the One range is welcomed. However unless HTC prices this considerably cheaper than the HTC One mini there doesn't seem to be much point in considering it.
