Android version and market relevance

In June 2022 was announced smartphone HTC Desire 22 Pro. It is located in the series HTC Desire among many others smartphones HTC.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And HTC Desire 22 Pro works on Android 12, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2022. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty HTC Desire 22 Pro, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Then we can make you happy, because HTC Desire 22 Pro works great with two SIM cards. And since 2020, after the official launch of 5G networks, it has become very important for most buyers that the new smartphone has high-speed mobile Internet. HTC Desire 22 Pro has support for fifth-generation networks, so you can choose it for purchase if it suits you for other characteristics and price.

Screen, body and battery

Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. HTC Desire 22 Pro received IPS LCD-screen measuring 6.6 inches. And this is a phablete, not just a smartphone. And, even if you liked this model, it′s far from the fact that it will be convenient for you to use it. Therefore, we advise you to hold it in your hands before buying. In addition to the screen size, it is also worth talking about the image refresh rate. 120 Hz is 120 updates per second of each pixel on the screen. This frequency is not very noticeable to the eye, but it gives a feeling of smooth operation of the interface. Especially in games where the picture changes quickly and with smooth animations, players get more pleasure from immersion in the game. Smartphones with a refresh rate of 120 Hz can now be bought only in premium segments, where the price starts at $ 800 and above. If it’s expensive for you, you can look at smartphones with a frequency of 90 Hz or even 60 Hz.

And now let’s move on to describing the dimensions of the case. The ratio of screen size to body size of HTC Desire 22 Pro is very high, so the screen takes up almost all the space from edge to edge (but a little bit lacking to the parameters of a frameless smartphone). In addition, there is a small hole at the top of the screen, which houses a selfie camera. Such a cutout significantly increases the usable area of the smartphone screen and even distinguishes the body design from other models. The thickness of the smartphone HTC Desire 22 Pro is 9.4 mm. This model, you can call “fat”, because today many smartphones with thinner cases are already being manufactured. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 4 520 mAh, and this is already the application for success and leadership in tests for the duration of the device from one battery charge.

Another of the features of the hull, we note that HTC Desire 22 Pro has dust, water protection. 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 22 Pro. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (triple camera smartphones): 64 MP Wide + 13 MP UltraWide + 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 22 Pro. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 32 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

And write a few words about the performance of HTC Desire 22 Pro. Of course, the very first thing that will be discussed is the processor. The model received a 8-core processor Snapdragon 695 5G (6 nm).

The second performance characteristic in our opinion is the amount of RAM. The HTC Desire 22 Pro has 8 installed on the RAM.

The built-in flash memory of this model has the volume 128 GB The manufacturer did not forget about the support of memory cards in the smartphone. Here you can install a card microSDXC.

Price for HTC Desire 22 Pro: buy or not to buy?

A huge new smartphone HTC Desire 22 Pro you can choose and buy in any store at a price of $470. Sales start at July 2022.

We made a brief review of this model, we also recommend that you look at photos and videos about it. In our opinion, the smartphone turned out to be very powerful in performance, but with a very steep camera.

And if you are not suitable for buying HTC Desire 22 Pro, then choose any other smartphone from the price segment “Above average smartphones from $400 to $500” or directory of current DROID smartphones.
