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.

HTC Explorer review

21 May 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

  • Conclusion: The Explorer is fast enough to get the job done, but like Samsung and its recent Galaxy Y, HTC is still confusing small screens with cheap smartphones. As ZTE has proved, the two are by no means related.

  • Summary: WOW, here we are at the end of another review. Hard to believe really as the time really has flown by. Overall my time with the HTC Explorer has been quite a pleasant one although I wasn’t blown away by the sheer quality of the phone.

HTC Explorer Review

  • Excerpt: The Explorer is a fairly diddy device. It feels almost square in the hand and is a petite 102.8mm (about 4.05″) by 57.2mm (2.25″). The screen is 3.2″ but the resolution is only 320×480. I say “only” because I’m a techy geek at heart.

HTC Explorer review

  • Excerpt: The Explorer is a budget handset aimed at first-time smartphone users, with a focus on keeping things simple and easy to use. It's a small but chubby handset which fits nicely in the hand, with a rugged plastic casing that feels sturdy and has a rubbery surface that helps with grip.

  • 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

HTC Explorer Review

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

HTC Explorer pictures and hands-on

  • Excerpt: HTC seems to be selling the Explorer as a phone for people new to smartphones. But from the time we've spent with it, people who have owned other Android handsets - or even iPhones - before might be quite keen to get their hands on one of these. For a start, it's tiny.
