It is going to be a tough fight, for sure. HTC’s midranger is said to be sharing specs with Moto G but the latter gets the latest Google Lollipop from Android, of course.  However, HTC can pull market sales through the picture-loving crowd with its 13MP and 5MP snappers, one factor that is well-respected with HTC.  Both cams will also support Full HD shootings that would render handlers to capture moments with ease and quality. Better yet, the Cloud Album, the software behind the snappers, secures copies for the myriad of your pictures and videos.  There is a cool integration of Facebook, Flickr, Dropbox and Google Drive for your convenience


Yes, Desire 626 still gets Kitkat 4.4.4 on which Moto G gets an edge. But we know HTC and this is one device maker that could pull numerous surprises.  There is really something with this smartphone that Moto G has to watch out for.


In Taiwan, HTC Desire 626 is already gracing the glass counter—offline and online.  At the price of $189, it is a certified good bargain.
