Android version and market relevance

HTC Desire is smartphone of 2010, which was officially announced in February the world′s electronics manufacturer — the company HTC.

In 2010 this new model works out of the box running the Android operating system 2.1 Eclair. But in the market of android-smartphones an important factor when buying a new device is the possibility of updating it to a fresh version of the OS. So HTC Desire can be updated to version 2.2 Froyo, therefore, we believe that it can be added to the candidates for purchase.

Smartphone HTC Desire does not support two SIM cards, only works with one SIM card. Therefore, if you want to choose and buy a dual-smartphone, then look at the page on which we have collected android smartphones with 2 sim cards.

Screen, body and battery

It is worth paying attention to good 3.7 inch capacitive AMOLED touchscreen smartphone HTC Desire. By the size of the screen — this is not the largest, but very small at the moment. The thickness of the case is 11.9 mm. This also accommodated a battery capacity of 1 400 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone HTC Desire has only one main camera on 5 MP. There is no front camera. If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then you hardly will be satisfied with the quality of these photos, because the camera is rather weak. We advise buying (well, or at least look) camera phones. This is smartphones with very good cameras on the market.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. HTC Desire received 1-core processor Snapdragon S1. The amount of RAM in it is 0.576 GB.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 0.512 GB. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card microSD up to 32 GB, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.

Price for HTC Desire: buy or not to buy?

An ultrasmall new smartphone HTC Desire you can choose and buy in any store at a price of $140. Sales start at March 2010.

We made a brief review of this model, we also recommend that you look at photos and videos about it. In our opinion, the smartphone turned out to be not very powerful in performance, but with a conventional camera.

And if you are not suitable for buying HTC Desire, then choose any other smartphone from the price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200” or directory of current DROID smartphones.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
