Android version and market relevance

In April 2013 was announced smartphone HTC First, which did not fall into any series smartphones HTC, but just located in the directory of smartphones of this manufacturer.

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 First works on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2013. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty HTC First, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.

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

Screen, body and battery

The screen HTC First is made using the Super LCD technology and has a diagonal 4.3 inches. Such a medium-sized main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 8.9 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 2 000 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

Let′s briefly describe the cameras in HTC First. The main camera got 5 MP and it is not double, but usual with one module. If you want to buy smartphone with dual camera, then goto in our catalog.

Frontcamera on 1.6 MP. Do not say that this is very much, is in our catalog selfie smartphones, whose frontcamera will be an order of magnitude better.

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 First has 2-core Snapdragon 400. RAM here with size 1 GB.

The amount of built-in memory in the smartphone is 16 GB and there are no other options to choose from.

Price for HTC First: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone HTC First got into our price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300” and began to be sold in April 2013 at a price of $200. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. HTC First is not a very fast smartphone with a convenient screen size and a conventional main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery, unfortunately, is weak here.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
