HTC Desire 826 Philippines: 13MP Read Camera and 5MP Secondary Camera

When it comes to pixel competition, surely the HTC Desire 826 Philippines won’t fall short. It still photos boast a great picture quality, which also performs great even in low light and without the aid of its LED flash. When it comes to video, users get to enjoy recording memorable moments in full HD (1080p) at 30fps; this resolution is sufficient enough for you to preview your recording videos in tremendous LCD monitors or TV screens, without having to endure random pixelation of your videos. Same thing applies to its front camera when it comes to video recording.

Snapdragon 410 Chipset

The HTC Desire 826 is equipped with the standard chipset for a higher-end midrange phone. Its Snapdragon chipset is also paired with a 1.2 GHz Quad-core processor and 2GB RAM. The enormous processor of the HTC Desire 826 Philippines is complemented with a more than big enough RAM, making this a phone that’s sure to give you performance beyond what you actually need. With that being said, you will never lag behind when it comes to productivity as it aims to provide more work than you could ask for. Also, the user experience will be very smooth indeed.

Expandable 16GB Internal Memory

You’ll have more than enough space to carry all of your favorite multimedia files with you – from music, pictures, to videos, and even applications, you’ll never have to worry about running out of space and deleting precious files just to give way to new ones. Aside from its 16GB Internal memory, its microSD slot can support up to 256GB additional memory – that’s a lot more than smart phones in the market today could actually support, most of them could only hold up to 64GB additional external memory.

More Value for Your Money

Vivo is a smartphone brand that offers more than what you are paying for, and the HTC Desire 826 Philippines is a living proof of that. Without burning too much money from your pocket, you get a high performing smartphone that’s already comparable to the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S5 minus the waterproofing– a device that doesn’t really come cheap. So, if you’re budget is looking quite restricted but you want to get a competitive device, the HTC Desire 826 Philippines could answer to your qualms.
