HTC Explorer

Pocket Lint
26 January 2012
  • Conclusion: This might not be a phone for power-Android users, but it's a likable enough handset for most use. It will certainly appeal to those who want a phone that can do more than their old Nokia thing that they haven't upgraded for years, and it should do so without scaring anyone making the switch.
  • Pros: Cheap, small, clear calls, great for occasional users, good battery life
  • Cons: Screen is a little too small, screen looks bad with moving content

17 January 2012
  • Conclusion: It's not really an object of desire, but as a solidly built and well equipped introduction to smartphones, the HTC Explorer could end up on an awful lot of shopping lists this year, and rightfully so.
  • Pros: Android on a budget, sturdy case, good battery life
  • Cons: Modest spec, camera quite poor

HTC Explorer Review

3g
16 January 2012
  • Summary: HTC’s aim is to encourage newbies to try out smartphones, and with its simple email, net and apps and a neat £130 pricetag, the HTC Explorer represents a decent choice.
  • Pros: A neat phone that is easy to find your way around and is a good price for anyone wanting to enter the smartphone arena
  • Cons: The chip is rather sluggish and surfing the net is not much fun on that small display, which has disappointing resolution too

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: On the whole, before turning on the device, we were relatively impressed with the HTC Explorer. We liked the simple design, and the rubber backplate had a sense of quality about it. But it’s when you start to delve a little deeper when the problems really start to surface.

Review: HTC Explorer

Techtree
12 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Equipped with the latest version of the Sense 3.5 UI , you can expect a pretty good response from this phone. The lightest touch will produce results, but with a slight amount of lag. However, it is acceptable for a budget Android.
  • Pros: Intuitive interface; Cute looks; Reasonably affordable; Nice battery life.
  • Cons: Icons are a bit small; No Gorilla Glass; Screen attracts fingerprints; Weak loudspeaker; Could have done with a faster CPU; Inbuilt file manager missing.

HTC Explorer in-depth review -

Mobile Choice UK
29 September 2011
  • Summary: With its dinky form, texturised rubber casing and rounded edges the HTC Explorer is quite a cute handset. It doesn't have such an impressive screen but it's certainly a good starter smartphone This phone has a marvellously simple navigation that allows you to dive in very quickly.
  • Pros: A compact handset that blends functionality with a non-threatening navigation, and at a price point that should suit someone looking to take that first plunge into smartphones
  • Cons: The processor is slower than other recent HTC models, web browsing on the smaller screen isn?t that impressive and the screen resolution lacks sparkle

Обзор HTC Explorer. Sense 3.5 в бюджетном сегменте

reobzor.ru
12 February 2014
  • Summary: Да, при ближайшем рассмотрении в момент выпуска вроде бы бюджетный аппарат получился не таким уж и бюджетным. Дёшево и сердито не получилось. Однако если на выходе HTC снова завысили цену, то сейчас, на данный момент, постепенно снижаясь, она становится вполне вменяемой, и станет совсем хорошей,...
  • Pros: HTC Sense 3.5, Поддержка Flash, Качественный динамик
  • Cons: Камера 3Мп без автофокуса, Завышенная цена, С быстродействием оболочки HTC Sense могут быть проблемы

  • Excerpt: HTC brengt de Explorer op de markt voor mensen die kennis willen maken met een smartphone en het internet, maar hier (nog) niet te veel geld aan uit willen geven. Het toestel komt dan ook voor een vriendelijke instapprijs op de markt.

PowerUser

  • Summary: HTC Explorer é um equipamento simples e prático sem as inúmeras opções e possibilidades (quase) infinitas que os smartphones de hoje em dia oferecem. O preço é uma das suas grandes vantagens – 185 euros.
  • Pros: Interface, Design
