The HTC Desire 300 is a 4.3-inch, bargain basement Android phone

 

With its low-resolution screen and dual-core processor, the HTC Desire 300 isn't going to impress hardened tech nerds. The promised low price, however, means it could be a good option for those of you on a budget.

Overall, the HTC Desire 300 disappoints. The lackluster technical specs and an outdated version of the Android OS are classic signs of a budget device, yet even in this area the 300 doesn’t compete as well as it needs to. There are plenty of high...

HTC Desire 300 review

 

HTC's Desire range aims for the lower end of the market and theDesire 300 is at the bottom of its UK list, with specs scaled backjust about as far as it dares. It has a less-than-HD screen, anunremarkable processor and low-end camera, but the price...

Decent build quality, expandable memory, low price

Sluggish processor, screen not HD, no 4G, not much onboardmemory

The HTC Desire 300 is a perfectly reasonable budget smartphone,with okay screen and processor, plus a better than expected camera.Expandable storage is nice too, but although it's touted as HTC's'most affordable' phone, and it's certainly cheaper than...

HTC Desire 300 Review

 

A good low-end handset, but there's better competition out there already, and they're trampling all over this.

Not as well designed or as classy as the Desire 500, the 300 has a slower CPU and no flash for those all-important indoor shots. Although browsing a number of sites seemed OK, I did experience a bit of slowness once I had Twitter and Facebook pulling...

The HTC Desire really caught us off-guard. If I'm honest the HTC Legend looked to be the better handset when we first saw them both. It was the design of the Legend that won us over, but the sales of the Desire seem to have proved otherwise. This i...

HTC Desire 300 Review

 

The HTC Desire 300 is a new mid-range Android smartphone that is surprisingly well built and good looking, but is it as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside?…

Appealing design ; Vivid 4.3” display

Feels underpowered ; Middling camera

The HTC Desire 300 is an interesting device. On one hand, we are really fascinated by its clean curvacious design and just-right size for our hand, but on the other hand we are underwhelmed by its slow performance. Is the compromise worth it?
