This week HTC announced their latest handset, the Desire 626. This smartphone redefines the mid-range, with a powerful octa-core processor, front-facing stereo speakers and a five inch 720p display. It’s an incredibly compelling package, particularly when the Desire 626 will cost just £150 sim-free! Let’s take a closer look.
The Desire 626 is an attractive and surprisingly stylish smartphone, with a smart two-tone design. The white option we’re looking at here has a gold frame, while the blue variant has a turquoise frame – both look great to my eyes.
The ‘caps’ above and below the 5-inch 720p display remind me of the One M8, while the back is a little more generic with a corner-mounted camera and inlaid HTC logo.
One of the best design elements of the Desire 626 has got to be its front-facing stereo speakers. These worked fantastically on the One M8, and should prove equally great inclusions here. Having two speakers facing toward your ears (instead of back into your hand) is an entirely logical move, and I’d love to this trait adopted by more phones in the future.
This 5-inch phone is thin and light too: it’s just 8.2mm thick and weighs 140 grams. Compared to HTC’s own 5-inch flagship, the One M8, you’re looking at a Desire 626 which is 1.2mm thinner and weighs 20 grams less.
The Desire 626 comes with a mid-range but recently released processor: the Snapdragon 410. That’s a quad-core unit running at 1.2GHz, and it’s also one of the first 64-bit processors to be released. Backing this is 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, expandable by micro SD cards. The phone has a moderate-sized 2000mAh battery to keep all of this going.
In terms of cameras, the Desire 626 is still very impressive for what is ostensibly a mid-range unit. You’ll find a massive 13-megapixel camera on the rear and a respectable 2-megapixel unit on the front. This combination performs better in good light than HTC’s current One M8 flagship, which is incredibly good for a £150 smartphone.
The Desire 626 runs Android 4.4 KitKat, the second most recent version of Android to be released. HTC have done well to upgrade their phones to the latest version of Android promptly, so expect the Desire 626 to reach Android 5.0 soon too.
On top of this Android 4.4 base, you’ll get HTC’s Sense UI which provides a unique look for the OS. This increasingly light skin offers a few great new features too, like a clever camera and the handy Blinkfeed social media / news app.
The Desire 626 seems like a strong mid-range option for 2015 – the phone has a solid design, good specs and a tasty flavour of Android. For £150, it’s a damn competitive option.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is coming soon. It hasn’t yet been announced – that’ll come in early March at MWC – but already we’ve seen quite a few Galaxy S6 cases from various manufacturers that shed some light on the phone inside. Today, we’re happy to announce that we’ve received our very first Galaxy S6 cases in the flesh, the Encase FlexiShield, and it too is quite illuminating.
These cases offer good protection and minimal bulk at a low price. The flexible gel material is easy to install and also provides a lot of grip. These cases are also usually available in a good range of colours; for the Galaxy S6 we’ve begun with options for white, black, light blue and purple.
The Encase FlexiShield Gel Case in Light Blue is the first variant to actually arrive. You can see our hands-on photos below.
Mike from our products team has the scoop:
“The S6 appears to have lost its waterproof rating, with no cover which was seen on the S5. Also, the headphone port has shifted to the middle of the top of the phone and the volume buttons are now two separate buttons instead of a single rocker.”
If you’d like to see more information or place a pre-order for any of these Galaxy S6 cases, please visit our product pages via the links below:
Thanks for checking out the article, and stay tuned for many more Galaxy S6 accessories in the days and weeks to come!

The Apple Watch will be released in April, 2015! That’s the word from Apple CEO Tim Cook, who was speaking during an earnings call late last week. The date is a little later than expected, but still falls within the company’s previously announced early 2014 timeline.
The Apple Watch is likely to be one of the best-selling smartwatches of 2015, with a range of models in different materials, styles and price points. Apple calls it “our most personal device yet“, and it’s not hard to see why.
The main idea is to keep your iPhone in your pocket for tasks that are simple, like seeing notifications, paying for goods and services using Apple Pay, and tracking your fitness. While we haven’t seen many apps running on the device, a wearable deeply integrated with your iPhone or iPad is likely to be a feature that attracts a hearty following.
Here at Mobile Fun, we’ll be supporting the Apple Watch with a full range of accessories. We’ve already added charging docks, mains chargers and screen protectors to our site, and we’ll have more accessories to come as the Apple Watch’s release date draws closer. With the combination of our accessories and the many styles of the Apple Watch, you’ll definitely be able to make a wearable that is uniquely yours.
