HTC and Spotify have joined forces to create a rather fun online tool that can create a Spotify playlist for you based a picture of yourself. The partnership is part of the HTC Desire 626’s promotional campaign and the company is pretty keen to tell you about the phone’s 5 megapixel front facing camera for all your selfie needs.
You can either take a current picture or upload an old one and the website will attempt to analyse your mood based on the picture and will recommend a selection of songs to match how you’re feeling. I say attempt has the results seem to be rather hit and miss, at least when it comes to detecting my bizarre facial expressions. It seems to understand my angry face pretty well though, but I don’t think that Robbie Williams’ Angles is a good suggestion to help me “cool off”.
As for the phone, the HTC Desire 626 was launched back in July as part of HTC’s latest series of affordable smartphones. The phones comes with a 720p 5-inch display, Snapdragon 210 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front camera and 16GB of internal storage.
In our review, we found the Desire 626’s camera to be rather good for an entry-level smartphone, although the handset is not without its share of flaws.
