After making its presence strongly felt at the high level, the Taiwanese handset maker HTC now seems to be getting ready to fight it out at the entry level of the smartphone arena. And it is to make its debut in the said genre with a smart handset named HTC Desire C. In this article we will try to find out whether the said handset has got the potential to give the big players like Nokia and Samsung a through run for their money or not.
First, let’s talk about the pros of the Desire C. The most pivotal thing about this handset is that it comes packed with ICS 4.0 operating system, so no wait for the upgrade. Other equally important and interesting thing is the HTC Sense UI v4.0 that according to the company minimizes navigation for simplicity, and indeed it does. Then, a 5MP camera on the rear side of the handset is a big achievement for an entry level smart handset.
To give support to a relatively weak processor of 600 MHZ the HTC Desire C has a strong 512 MB of RAM memory. If we search further for other plus points (the Desire C has many) the handset has Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and the device can work as mobile hotspot. The music lovers should take heart in the fact that the handset brings to them what we call the Beats Audio, no need to say that it makes the music rich and sound authentic. And for those who are into watching videos the Desire C has a big 3.5 inch screen on offer.
Now, if there are pros the cons are bound to be there. The most disappointing aspect of the handset is the weak 600 MHz processor, even a handset like the Samsung Galaxy Y, which costs around 5 to 6 thousand less than the Desire C has 832 MHz processor. The other lump in the throat for the Desire C is the fragile Li-Ion 1230 mAh battery. The handset does not sport a vivid screen resolution that makes the big display relatively redundant; the 480x320p resolution leaves the ppi at a meager 165 level. The storage capacity of the handset is also not very pretty as it is only 4GB, but the expansion capacity of the Desire C is 32GB and that is a sort of relief.
The HTC Desire C, with a price tag of less than 13,000 INR, is bound to shake the market with its good features and stunning looks. The device has all my sincere recommendation.
