hTC Desire 728 Dual SIM Review: Price, Specs, Pros and Cons

Review of hTC Desire 728 Dual SIM at a Glance:-

There is strong competition in mid range Smartphone segment because under this established brands and new comer brands both have their own product. Company launched hTC Desire 728 in this range with features like MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor, 5.5 inches LCD display,  13 and 5 MP camera, Dual SIM support, 16 GB ROM with 200 GB external SD card support, 2 GB RAM and 2800 mAh battery. Here we will have Short review, Pros and Cons of hTC Desire 728.

hTC Desire 728 released in two colour variants white and black, material used to make the body seems of glossy plastic, build quality and gripping of the phone is well modulated so after being 5.5’ it can stick to the hand fairly. Main camera is located on the top left of the backside. The power button and volume rockers key located in right edge, 3.5mm headphone jack on the top and USB cable port on bottom.

Having display size of 5.5 inches with resolutions of 720 x 1280 pixels and 267 ppi display density it has pretty decent delivery of colours and graphics, Although 1080p full HD display and at least 320ppi+ density become standard size  for mid range phone where it clearly below that standard. But one thing we can say that it retained nice visual experience. One feature that disappoints us is its display which is not protected with any Special protective covering such as Corning Gorilla Glass.
Phone has 13 MP primary camera and 5 MP front camera, we have noticed that some of the handset has pinkish photos problem while using Smartphone flashlight for photography (Aware about this before buy). The picture quality of photos in daylight is crisp and clear, although it is not looking as good as we expected from 13 MP hTC camera. Phone is technically good in taking good quality selfies.  
In this handset hTC choose to be with MedaiTek 1.3 GHz octa core processor; clearly this is not made for heavy gaming. You can rely over this handset for day to day smooth tasking and it functioning flawless over switching different apps.
Phone has 2800 mAh battery which is under the average performer that can easily give you battery back of 24 hour.

Why to buy and Final words about hTC Desire 728 Dual SIM

Phone has good design with quite big 5.5’ size. This device has everything under balanced. There is no wow factor. Camera captures decent photos, the CPU performs well and the battery run for one full day although there is camera malware in some handset causing pinkish colour in photos. There are other Smartphone having better specs in same price group such as Honor 5X, LeTV 1S and Moto X Play.
