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 mu...
Good 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...
Bad 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 stea...
