HTC have taken the wraps off their latest smartphone of 2012. The HTC Desire C, where the ‘C’ doesn’t really stand for anything (probably cr*p), brings with it a few specifications which would fit in with the Android phones of 2009. All slamming aside, the HTC Desire C is HTC’s latest low-budget smartphone and will retail for around £160 SIM-free and £15 per month on contract in the UK.
Specification wise the Desire C rocks:
Android Ice Cream Sandwich ( HTC Sense 4 customisation)
3.5-inch HVGA screen
Dropbox integration and free 25MB storage.
As stated the HTC Desire C is set to be HTC’s lowest range handset and grandly takes the title of HTC’s least powerful smartphone of 2012.
The main problem that we have with the Desire C is that for a whole £60 less you can get a solid Huawei Ascend G300 (review) Sim-free which pound for pound is a hundred times better than the C rocking a bigger display, a faster processor and all the usual microSD expansion goodies.
For some people the HTC brand may sway them, however. We recommend trying out the Desire C before you buy it because it may be worth spending a little bit more money on a better handset in the long term.
