HTC Desire C

 

A budget Android 4.0 handset with some nice styling touches.

Nice styling and good build quality, Good quality screen, Android 4.0 is feature packed

A little expensive for its features, Can become quite slow

HTC Desire C

 

The HTC Desire C sits at the bottom of the company's range of Android handsets. It's difficult to ignore the choice of name for this particular phone, picking up on the heritage of the Desire family. When you set the HTC Desire C down alongside rival...

Good sized 3.5-inch display but in small package, latest software, great design and build

Camera lacks autofocus, battery life is poor, looks a little pricey compared to other budget models, Beats turning on and off suggests a software bug

When you set the HTC Desire C down alongside rival affordable devices, it's pretty easy to see what you get. You get better design and build and you get a user interface that has some really nice refinements in Sense 4. What you don't get is a huge...

The HTC Desire C is the newest addition to HTC's 2012 line-up of Android devices, joining the HTC One series and seeing a diversion from what we thought

HTC Desire C review

 

Can this small, rubber clad phone climb head and shoulders above its competition?

Attractive design ; ICS & Sense 4.0 ; Beats Audio ; Easy to use

Slow and sluggish ; screen unresponsive at times ; poor account integration

The HTC Desire C may be the end of an era for low-end handsets from the Taiwanese firm, as it has recently come out and said that it's not doing "cheap, cheap phones" anymore.

HTC Desire C review

 

The HTC Desire C is a low-budget and very compact Google smartphone running Android 4.0.

The HTC Desire C is a nicely designed budget Android 4.0 handset. It could make a good first smartphone but doesn't have any outstanding features. The price is attractive but if you're not bothered about NFC then it's worth paying an extra £20 for the...

HTC Desire C Review

 

The Desire C is HTC's latest budget Android smartphone, and is a handset aimed at smartphone newbies and those on a budget. The pint-sized handset sure does look good, but can it carry on the repuation left by the original HTC Desire?

Nice design, runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, good battery life

600MHz processor can be painfully slow, poor camera

The HTC Desire C is a good budget handset, and one of the few to come running Android Ice Cream Sandwich. However, its poor camera and lack of speed may leave some users feeling let down.

HTC Desire C

 

Meet the first truly entry-level HTC handset that offers the joys of Ice Cream Sandwich to phone buyers on a tight budget. Despite its budget label, the HTC Desire C still contains some nifty features, such as Beats Audio sound enhancement, a 5MP...

Much ado was made about the Desire C's Ice Cream Sandwich capabilities. But when the processor seems unable to keep up with its own OS, then you have to wonder whether it was worth force-feeding ICS into it.
