HTC Desire C
The HTC Desire C is an Android 4.0 smartphone with a 3.5-inch display and a 600MHz speed processor. It has a total storage of 4GB, and a 512MB RAM. There’s also a microSD memory card slot. If you’ve got a memory card you can store photos, videos and music to share with the device.
The HTC Desire C is an entry-level phone, but HTC hasn’t skimped on its design. There are nice touches everywhere you look. Even when you life the cover off, the red interior screams out as if to say “look at me.” The cover is plastic, but the build quality is still great. The Desire C is nice phone to hold. Its curves make the device feel pleasant in the hand. And it’s dead light, too, weighing just 100 grams.
The user experience is top-notch. With Android 4.0 on board, menus are clear and easy to navigate. Both sets of controls, in-screen and the three touch controls on the device make using the HTC Desire C feel straightforward. Browsing menus, apps, and Google Maps works delightfully well.
For an entry-level device you get a nice array of features that you won’t find on some rival entry-level devices, including sound powered by Beats Audio technology. Audio sounds better than you’ll discover on many rival entry-level smartphones.
The HTC Desire C also has a 5-megapixel camera, 3.5mm stereo audio jack, Bluetooth 4.0 for syncing with wireless devices such as a Bluetooth headset and music enhanced by Beats Audio technology.
The display isn’t at the same level of HTC’s more stellar smartphones such as the HTC Desire One X. Its 480 x 320 pixel display isn’t as clear, or as bright, but still manages to cope adequately in bright conditions, but don’t expect it to blow you away.
The camera is fixed focus, which means you’ll never get close to the high quality photos possible on more advanced smartphones. You’ll need steady hands to get the best shots from the Desire C. There’s also no flash.
Battery life leaves a fair bit to be desired. With reasonable usage, without going overboard on internet and app usages, the HTC Desire C can get you through a day, but just about.
