12 September 2012
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...

Summary: The HTC Desire C is a competitively priced pre-paid smartphone that offers a few features we aren't used to seeing on low-end Android devices. We like its design, build quality and the decent battery life it offers, but the sluggish user experience will frustrate most buyers.
Pros: Good design and build, Relatively low price, Decent battery life
Cons: Can be sluggish at times, Abysmal camera, Limited internal memory
Excerpt: Mid-range handsets running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich are still quite a rarity. Most manufacturers settle on releasing devices that only have Android 2.3 Gingerbread pre-installed, or worse, some other version of the Android software that’s even older, like Froyo or Eclair. But not HTC.
Excerpt: The 3.5" LCD screen has pixel dimensions of 320x480. The display is reasonably bright, but its sharpness could have been better. On the flip side, the panel's viewing angles are narrow, and its sunlight legibility is nothing worth writing home about.
Pros: Sturdy build; Impressive sound quality.
Cons: Sluggish performance; Terrible camera; Mediocre video player.
Summary: HTC has priced the Desire C at a street price of Rs.14,000, which is simply too expensive for what essentially feels like a sub-10K phone. HTC may have increased the screen size but the display seems even worse than the Explorer since the resolution has stayed the same.
