Android version and market relevance

New smartphone from the company HTC got the name HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G and was announced in January 2021. This model is released in the series of smartphones HTC Desire.

Smartphone HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G works out of the box under the operating system Android version 10. According to our information, this model has not received any updates to the software, and if you want to choose some other smartphone on this version of the OS with support for updates, then look at these smartphones on Android 10 in our catalog.

In addition the HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G — is a smartphone for 2 SIM cards, which is ideal if you use the services of several mobile operators. And this model also supports 5G networks, which means that the speed of receiving data with this smartphone can reach up to 100 Mb/s. Soon, each smartphone will work in the networks of the fifth-generation (5G). Therefore, in our catalog on a separate page, you will find all 5G smartphones from popular manufacturers of Android devices.

Screen, body and battery

In the case HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G thickness 9.4 mm is placed battery for 5 000 mAh and a very large IPS LCD touchscreen with a diagonal 6.7″ and refresh rate 90 Hz. As you can see in the official photos, the body has a neat little cutout in the screen that houses the selfie camera. Thus, the manufacturer decided to increase the screen area without increasing the physical size of the smartphone body. The screen is very close to the edges of the case, which also improves the ergonomics of using the phone with one hand. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 48 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro + 5 MP Depth sensor. And by the way, the camera’s multiple lenses are an interesting feature. What does it give you? Additional modules also take a picture during the «shutter release». And then the smartphone, using special algorithms, processes images from all cameras to optimize and improve the final photo. And with several cameras, you can shoot more interesting photos, for example, with the bokeh effect (this is when the subject in the foreground is in focus, and the background is blurred). The main camera we would rate perfectly for being one of the best cameras on the market.

The frontcamera is also in HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 16 MP Wide. These characteristics you will definitely have enough to make your selfie photos in different lighting conditions. This model does not really stand out in terms of body design (in the context of the front camera). Therefore, I would like to tell you that there are smartphones with pop-up front camera. How it works? The front camera is located inside the body and slides up only when you activate the front camera mode. You take a selfie photo or video, exit the «Camera» application and the camera panel begins to slide down into the body. Everything is simple and interesting enough.

Processor and Internal Memory

The speed of the smartphone affects not only the optimized software (the newer Android, the better), but also the characteristics of the hardware: the processor and the amount of RAM. HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G has 8-core Snapdragon 690 5G. RAM here with size 8 GB.

The amount of built-in memory in the smartphone is 128 GB and there are no other options to choose from. And if there was not enough internal memory, then you can save the necessary data on the memory card microSDXC .

Price for HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G got into our price segment “Above average smartphones from $400 to $500” and began to be sold in January 2021 at a price of $425. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G is a very smart smartphone with a huge screen and the coolest main camera for today, and the front camera at it turned out simply smart. And to all this we add that the battery here deserves special attention, because it received a very powerful with increased capacity.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
