Android version and market relevance

HTC Desire U was announced by the company HTC in January 2013 and in the same year official sales began in stores. The device was placed in the series of smartphones Desire. HTC Desire U works on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but, unfortunately, this version of the software has not been updated. And before listing all the main characteristics of this model, it is important to note that in HTC Desire U implemented support for working with two SIM cards.

And if you want to look at the competitors of this smartphone, then in our catalog on the page “Smartphones of the year 2013” all models of the same year are presented. And it will also be useful to look at the page with smartphones at a similar price, like HTC Desire U — this is the price segment page “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”.

Screen, body and battery

The screen HTC Desire U is made using the Super LCD technology and has a diagonal 4 inches. Such a medium-sized main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 9.3 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 1 650 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera got 5 MP, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment very weak cameras at the moment. If you have a little more money, then we suggest adding and buying one of the camera phones, which we sorted separately in our catalog.

Processor and Internal Memory

After a lot of leaks, we now know all characteristics of the HTC Desire U. The smartphone received 1-core processor. RAM is built-in 0.512 GB.

But the most interesting is the built-in memory of 4 GB. This is the only option that is produced by the manufacturer. Looking for memory cards? There is a special slot for card format microSD up to 32 GB.

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

If you are looking for a camera phone, then this is not the model that suits you. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is not the model you are looking for.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling HTC Desire U will begin in June 2013 at a price of $150. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).

We picked up these models at a similar price.
