HTC Desire C
28 September 2015
Summary: The HTC Desire C is the company’s solution to offer better battery life. The phone does not fail 100%, but it’s not the best in the branch, either. Sure, it is an appealing device sporting a great UI, but at the end of the day this is no Samsung Galaxy Y.
Excerpt: The HTC Desire C is an odd creature. Its looks are reminiscent of the higher-end devices in HTC’s smartphone alphabet, and it runs the same version of Android that comes pre-installed on flagship phones like its big brother, the One X, and Samsung’s Galaxy S III.
Conclusion: All in all the HTC Desire C is very close to being a recommended handset, but falls short thanks to the humble 600MHz processor, mediocre camera and HVGA screen. It does get a lot right, we love the design with its red accents and think HTC did a great job getting Android 4.0 and Sense 4.0 on their...
Conclusion: HTC has stepped out of its comfort zone with this one. It's not their first attempt at a smartphone for the masses and the Taiwanese are definitely getting the hang of it. The Desire C is firmly in the tradition of the two Wildfires and the Explorer.

Excerpt: Revealed back in March and officially announced shortly after , HTC's new entry-level Android smartphone, the HTC Desire C , isn't a One-series device, even if it shares a lot of features and design elements with HTC's premium range of smartphones.
Summary: There are no complaints about the reception quality and the voice rendering quality. My handset showed really well in receiving the network signal during the entire two-week period I had been using it.
Conclusion: There is one thing that I have left until the end to mention, and that is that the 3three touch sensitive buttons on the bottom of the device just below the screen didn’t light up once while I was using it.
Conclusion: The HTC Desire C is a fine low-end smartphone. It's compact and cute, and will certainly get the job done for most standard tasks. The price for this phone is just right. It's priced very closely to rivals such as the Sony Ericsson Xperia ray and Motorola Defy+ or Mini .
Pros: Good looks, Android 4 out-of-the-box, Beats Audio
HTC Desire C – entry-level but with the sweet Ice Cream Sandwich and Beats Audio

Conclusion: HTC Desire C will be available in the UK via O2, Orange, Phones4U, Tesco Mobile, The Carphone Warehouse, Three, T-Mobile, Virgin Media, and Vodafone in the UK. T-Mobile UK confirmed they will offer it as a free device, if you decide to opt for a two year contract with a £15.50 monthly plan.
Conclusion: The HTC Desire C is a decent little smartphone, with Ice Cream Sandwich as a special treat and a half decent camera too, but that low-powered processor means it's outshone by other low-priced Androids.
Pros: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, HTC Sense 4.0, decent camera
