HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G: a mid-range that loses in price
Gone are the glory years for HTC and this is unlikely to change for the better, at least in the short term. Still, this Taiwanese company does not give up and continues to release models. And although they are not as many as before or taking so many risks in their specifications, they still have a series of characteristics that we should not overlook.
This time we are talking about the Desire 21 Pro 5G, a mid-range with 5G connectivity. But besides this, what else can we find in this mobile, is it really worth it? Well, nothing better than being able to judge it for yourself.

HTC has put the batteries with the Desire 21 Pro 5G, starting with the design, a more current one and in line with the design of most manufacturers. In it, we have a team that takes advantage of the surface very well to put 6.7 inches in not so big dimensions. Also, it has a small hole in the screen, where the front camera is located.
From behind, the camera module closely resembles that of other more popular mobiles such as the A51 and A71. But the similarities are not only in the appearance since this combination of cameras has been preferred by the mid-range of many manufacturers in recent months.
And in general, little can be claimed from the Desire 21 Pro 5G, it is a fairly complete mobile, with a battery that promises hours and hours of autonomy, plenty of power to fulfill with ease in all day-to-day tasks, in addition to a screen that, although it is not AMOLED, has a refresh rate of 90 Hz, ideal to make you feel that everything is going smooth as silk.
As you may have also noticed, there is only a combination of RAM and internal memory, although this is not something you should worry about because we are talking about 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory, which you can expand thanks to a card slot. microSD.
But without a doubt, the most striking thing about this mobile is the 5G connectivity, thanks to the SD 690 mid-range processor. However, as we will see below, not all that shines is gold, since although we liked the specifications a lot of the HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G, perhaps the price not so much.
Price and availability of the HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G
The HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G is now available in two very sober colors in Taiwan for a starting price of 350 euros at the exchange. A figure that will surely make more than one change their mind, which does not mean that we are talking about a device that is not recommended. But when compared to the recently unveiled Redmi Note 9T 5G, which is really competitively priced and available for sale right now, there is very little the HTC Desire 21 Pro can do to defend itself.
Still, we would like to see how HTC does this year, it would be a shame to lose a manufacturer that was once a reference in the market. If you were interested in the HTC Desire 21 Pro be careful because, although there is still no release date for other countries.
