HTC Desire 500 Overview
The most powerful smartphones are,generally,the devices with the best specifications.
The Desire 500 breaks this mould as it is, at the time of launch, the cheapest smartphone to have a quad core processor.
Built into this compact device is a 1.2GHz quad core processor which will enable rapid performance.
There is 1GB RAM to assist with multitasking and 4GB of internal memory which is further expandable via the microSDXC memory card slot that supports memory cards up to 64GB.
This is particularly useful as the 500 has an 8 megapixel camera with an f/2.0 28mm focal lens and HTC’s ImageChip to capture the best images possible. There is a back side illuminated sensor, 5 levels to the flash and 720p HD video recording.
Recent HTC devices have had Beats Audio technology built in and the Desire 500 has not been left behind here, and comes out of the box with the technology for enhanced audio.
With Android OS installed, access to navigation, Gmail, Google and more is available out of the box. You can easily connect to your social networks and alternative email accounts.
Naturally WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity are built into the Desire 500, which is all controlled through the 4.3” WVGA touchscreen.
HTC have included their latest version of Sense UI to give added functionality, features and usability.
