Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone HTC Desire 501 we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company HTC in November 2013. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” HTC Desire 501 works on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and has not received until now no updates to the more recent version of the software. In this case, we advise you to avoid buying models that do not receive software updates. Look at the others smartphones of 2013.

Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards. And we are very, very sorry, but HTC Desire 501 does not support two SIM cards, so this smartphone has one minus more than other similar ones smartphones with support for two SIM cards.

Screen, body and battery

Weak HTC Desire 501 battery received a volume of 2 100 mAh. In this case, the smartphone has medium in size touchscreen TFT with diagonal 4.3″.

The thickness of the shell is 9.8 mm. This is a very thick case, we advise you to look in our catalog smartphones with thin cases, which fit comfortably in your hand.

Main camera and selfie camera

HTC Desire 501 is not a camera phone, because it has a main camera on 8 MP. If you want to make a lot of high-quality photos and video on your smartphone, we advise you to look in the catalog on camera phones, whose cameras are more than 20 MP. In addition to the main camera, which is very important, it is also worth paying attention to the quality of the pictures from the front camera. And here at this model the front-seat camera got its 2.1 MP, which is very little. If you really want to make quality smartphones on the smartphone, we advise you to look in the catalog selfie smartphones, in which the frontcamera of 13 Mp.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in HTC Desire 501 is installed 2-core processor. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 1 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSD up to 32 GB. You are only available 8 GB built-in memory, so you need to be more careful about what you store on the device.

Price for HTC Desire 501: buy or not to buy?

$240 is the price for HTC Desire 501 at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with not the fastest processor, with a screen of normal size, which is convenient to hold in your hand, with an ordinary camera for photos and video, and with a conventional front camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.

And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? In this model, the battery is very weak. We advise you to look at real long-livers — smartphones with a powerful battery.

HTC Desire 501 will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
