HTC Desire C Overview


The HTC Desire C (not NFC) is one of the first budget Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phones to hit the market. If this is your first time using an Android handset (or any smartphone for that matter), you’re in for a treat as the Desire C offers the latest version of Android and includes many of the features that are included in today’s top of the range smartphones.

Continuing the legacy of the HTC Desire name that has been defined by its market-leading predecessors, the feature set offered by the Desire C would have made it a flagship device had it been released a only few years previously.

To put this simply - the lower spec’d HTC Hero was released less than three years ago and cost more than double the asking price of the newly announced HTC Desire C. Thanks to the speed at which smartphone technology evolves, entry-level phones are becoming increasingly powerful and feature-rich, yet maintain very reasonable price points.

Whether you’re using a smartphone for the first time or upgrading from an old handset, a big consideration will be the camera. With a 5MP snapper, the Desire C will take great quality photos that are easy to share with friends and family. Make use of a range of social media sharing apps, including the newly released Instagram for Android, which can be downloaded for free from the Play Store.

As well as social media sharing options, the Desire C features the latest version of Bluetooth (4.0) and of course Wi-Fi and 3G are also included for access to the web at home and on the go.

If you’re thinking of buying the Desire C, music playback will likely be an important factor in your decision. The Desire C has a lot to offer on the front; HTC’s Beats Audio technology for enhanced sound, a 3.5mm jack to connect a pair of headphones, FM radio and compatibility with a huge range of file types. That’s not to mention internet radio, which is easily accessible through free apps from the Play store, such as the popular Tune In Radio.

With all this mention of photos, music and video, you’ll be wanting somewhere to store your files. The Desire C has this covered with a variety of options. There’s 4GB of internal storage to start with, a microSD slot to expand the memory by another 32GB and, thanks to a special offer that HTC has in place, the Desire C also comes with 25GB of Dropbox storage free for two years.

One feature that we’re yet to mention is power. The Desire C comes with a 600MHz processor, which may seem underwhelming compared to the 1GHZ quad-core chips of top of the range handsets, but still packs a powerful punch and is more than enough to fuel the included feature set. When you also consider that the HTC Hero lead the market with a 528Mhz processor when it launched, you’ll understand that the Desire C isn’t doing bad at all at 600MHz.

Finally, let’s have a look at the handset’s display. It measures 3.5” diagonally, which is a happy medium for a pocketable design and comfortable user experience. There’s plenty of space to browse a web page, play games and watch YouTube videos. Along with the 1230mAh built-in battery, the feature set of the Desire C is packed into a stylish, pebble-like design that looks incredibly slick with its black finish.
