Android version and market relevance

In February 2011 was announced smartphone HTC Desire S. It is located in the series Desire among many others smartphones HTC.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And HTC Desire S works on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2011. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty HTC Desire S updated to version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Unfortunately HTC Desire S does not support working with two SIM cards, we advise you to look at android smartphones with two SIM cards.

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the HTC Desire S screen, we were assigned to a segment very compact smartphones. See for yourself, here is S-LCD-screen with diagonal 3.7″.

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At HTC Desire S the case turned out very thick — 11.6 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 1 450 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

Take photos and videos on smartphone HTC Desire S possible on the main camera on 5 MP and on the front 0.3 MP. We tried to divide all smartphones in the catalog into segments and this model with such a main camera got in the segment of weak chambers. And today there are a lot of camera phones at affordable prices, which we recommend that you look at.

Processor and Internal Memory

The speed of the smartphone affects not only the optimized software (the newer Android, the better), but also the characteristics of the hardware: the processor and the amount of RAM. HTC Desire S has 1-core Snapdragon S2. RAM here with size 0.768 GB.

The amount of built-in memory in the smartphone is 1.1 GB and there are no other options to choose from. And if there was not enough internal memory, then you can save the necessary data on the memory card microSD up to 32 GB.

Price for HTC Desire S: buy or not to buy?

The choice to make is not difficult — to buy or not to buy — we will help you to solve it right now. New smartphone HTC Desire S we took and carried out segmentation for the quality of the camera, screen size, battery capacity and processor performance. So, if you want to buy a smartphone with a small screen, then this model perfectly suits you. If you want to receive the usual quality of photos, you can safely take this smartphone and do not overpay for top models. And, finally, on the performance of the processor, this model is not very powerful with a weak battery here.

Having dealt with the average characteristics, it remains to understand whether it is worth all the declared price of $100 (without taxes and fees). Here everyone makes a choice for himself and evaluates all the pros and cons.

If something you did not fit this smartphone for purchase, then look in our catalog for a selection DROID smartphones. These are models that are now on sale, and that work under the new version of Android OS.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
