HTC Explorer Review: In Depth

Recombu
16 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The HTC Explorer represents great value for money. It’s very easy to get to grips with and the layout is easily customisable. Overall performance is very smooth for a phone of this price and will more than satisfy those after an inexpensive pay-as-you-go phone. Our only real criticisms of it are that some may find it too small. That and that the flash-less 3-megapixel camera isn’t very good.
  • Pros: Easy to use, Easy to customise, Nice price
  • Cons: Camera isn’t the best, No flash, Maybe too small for some

  • Conclusion: I honestly believe that this phone has been aimed at the younger population because of its size, price point and actually the way it feels to use every day is an obvious indication for me that Smartphone junkies like me could never own a phone such as this one, but beginners or kids wanting a change from their Blackberry, Sorry James! But it could happen.

  • Summary: The HTC Explorer is decent entry level phone that offers little in the way of standout features. Despite this it’s still a worthwhile purchase for those simply looking for a phone they use to stay in contact, but love the idea of being able to hit up their Facebook account.

HTC Explorer review: The start of a journey

GSM Arena
14 December 2011
  • Conclusion: When the HTC Explorer was announced our first thought was "Nothing we haven't seen. Next one please" but we admit we were wrong. The 600MHz processor did much better than expected - the chipset is much better than what the Wildfire S had. The Explorer particularly impressed us when it handled Flash content with ease - both videos and games. It's good for watching some SD videos and playing some Android 3D games too.
  • Pros: Light and compact, Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support, 14.4 Mbps HSDPA, 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support, 3.2" 256K-color TFT capacitive touchscreen of HVGA resolution (320 x 480), 600MHz Snapdragon S1 MSM7225A chipset, Cortex A5 CPU, 512MB RAM, Adreno 200 GPU, Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) with HTC Sense 3.5 UI, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot functionality, GPS with A-GPS connectivity, 3 MP fixed-focus camera, geotagging, face detection, VGA video @ 24fps, microUSB port (c...
  • Cons: Slow CPU, Modest retail package, Fixed-focus camera, No Document viewer, No secondary video call camera

  • Excerpt: Announced back in late September , the HTC Explorer follows HTC's tradition of affordable entry-level Android smartphones. Running on Android 2.3.5 / Gingerbread and featuring HTC Sense 3.5, the Explorer is powered by the brand new Qualcomm MSM7225A Snapdragon S1 ARM Cortex A5 45nm CPU at 600 MHz; which is equally fast as the older Qualcomm MSM7227 800 MHz CPU but consuming less power.

HTC Explorer Review

Tech2
11 April 2011
  • Summary: The HTC Explorer is priced at Rs.10,498, and at this price it competes with the likes of the Motorola Fire XT and the LG Optimus One . The XT was an absolute dud but the Optimus One is still going strong more than a year after its launch. However, with the new Explorer, HTC quietly sweeps away all competition in the same price bracket. This phone won’t impress you, if you’re looking at plain specs.

  • Conclusion: Unfortunately the phone does not come incorporated with PC Sync software. But if you have a Google account, you can simply sign in and all the data gets automatically synced. Google Contacts basically does the job for you. Where the budget smartphone excels is the Android™ phone sync your contacts with Google contacts directly so you need not to update your data every time. The Android™ marketplace is real huge with almost 300,000 apps stored for downloading.
  • Pros: HTC Sense UI, Gingerbread OS 3.0
  • Cons: Low Battery Longevity
