From what has been known, either of the two terminals are below 450 euros in its free variant, which is not bad but it is not exactly the most adjusted cost that we have seen to date in the market. Therefore, it will be necessary to properly assess with the tests whether the quality / price ratio is adequate.
The fact is that the HTC Desire 816, a phablet with a 5.5-inch 720p screen, according to GSMArena will have a price of about 370 euros free (on another website in Germany it seems that it will be somewhat more expensive reaching the € 400). Curiously, it must be said that in Amazon Spain it is to be reserved by 429 euros. It should not be forgotten that the most outstanding components of this model are a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, 1.5 GB of RAM and an internal storage of 8 “gigs”.
Regarding the HTC Desire 610, also in free mode, it reaches the € 300 in Germany and, in Spain, the figure rises in reserve to 350 euros. This model, for those who do not remember what it offers, has a screen of 4.7 inches at 960 x 540, Snapdragon 400, 1 GB of RAM and, as far as storage goes, it reaches 8 GB.
What has not been revealed is the exact date on which the HTC Desire 816 and 610 will go on sale, but the truth is that this is a significant information to be able to assess the convenience of buying these terminals that, perhaps, are a suitable option for the less demanding and, quite possibly, for the operators. Do the known prices seem adequate to you?
