Excellent

Hi,

I was on the look out for a entry level/mid range android phone and finally narrowed down my choices to the LG optimus NET and the HTC explorer. The optimus NET looked better on paper with a faster processor and a larger battery. As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating, one on one this phone is far better than the competition in terms of build quality and performance. Without question, The HTC UI is simply the best.No wonder their phones sell at a premium in terms of pricing compared to similar spec phones of other brands.

Without question, The HTC UI is simply the best.No wonder their phones sell at a premium in terms of pricing compared to similar spec phones of other brands. What one should realise is that HTC is a specialist mobile manufacturer and their forte is making mobile phones, therefore there are no compromises unlike samsung, LG etc who make everything under the sun.

The phone is very smooth and works well without lags of any kind. As far as the internal storage is concerned, though the box says 90 MB what is actually available is nearly 110 MB. U will get this info in the storage settings option. I dont see what the fuss is all about, most apps can be moved to the memory card so it does not really matter. If it is such a big deal then just root the phone and clear the unnecessary apps which cannot be moved to the SD card, problem solved.

My only gripe is the lack of auto focus and LED flash in the camera, other than that no issues whatsoever.

And oh, forgot to mention the boot up time, it boots incredibly fast in a matter of seconds. Its as if the phone is on stand-by mode. Starts up in a flash:-)

Great buy at the price and trust me guys, once u get used to HTC sense UI, nothing else will be good enough.

Overall a Good Phone

First of all to answer all users queries, the phone comes with Earphones and 8 GB Memory Card outside the box ( 2GB inside the phone) when bought from Flipkart.

Pros:
1. Resolution is better than all Samsung phones.
2. Latest processor GPU, 512 MB RAM. Phone doesn't lags or hangs or shuts down. But due to heavy consumption of certain apps, it causes the Force closing of that particular app. Multitasking is brilliant. 4-5 applications run at a time seamlessly.
3. Beautiful UI by HTC Sense. Everything at one touch can be acheived by easy customization.
4. Battery backup is better than any...

4. Battery backup is better than any other phones. I see people claiming a day with heavy usage but I can get upto 8-9 hours with heavy usage of GPRS and browsers.
5. For female users: It has a cute charger. lol

Cons:
1. Camera is not what this phone is made for. If you looking for good camera switch to something else.

Little disappointed with Flipkart service. Took 6 days to reach. And more than a week to claim the 3 days price guarantee (Still a useful policy).

Could have been an awesome phone!

This is my second Android phone, after the Samsung Galaxy Y, which I had bought recently. My gateway to the app world prior to these phones (over the past 5 years) has been via my two iPod Touch devices. Note that my usage needs are 10 to 15 minutes talktime a day, but plenty of apps. This review is obviously based on that need.

ASPECTS OF EXPLORER THAT ROCK:

Awesome color depth:

Open the same app on iPod Touch alongside HTC Explorer.. the Explorer shines and makes the iPod Touch look like an old TV screen. That's just for your understanding, I'm not trying to compare two un-related products here.

Fantastic Touch:

Unbeatable feather touch, stunned that it is available for this price!

ASPECTS OF EXPLORER THAT SUCK:

Internal Memory & Inbuilt Apps:

I regret buying this phone for this single reason. The phone comes clouded with apps (personally, ones I care the least about). And in the process, these stupid apps eat into the precious Internal memory, which is already a meagre 150 MB (that's what it shows on my phone, though the product page reads 90 MB). And, we cannot uninstall these apps without rooting the device.

Why this matters? Don't be surprised if the phone runs low on memory and requires frequent restarts. Mind you, i'm using a 4 GB Memory Card. But when you install apps from the app stores, some cannot be moved to the memory card (courtesy of the respective developers). Basically, you will find yourself uninstalling the apps you love just because you want to try some new ones from the app stores. That's when you start thinking why the hell you have to put up with the junk apps that came with the phone. Why can't the phone let us uninstall them or move them to the memory card?

ANDROID OS:

Yep, Android is an evolving OS blah blah. But it's not funny to watch it evolve under your 9000 bucks. The UX is pretty sad at times. Can't help imagining how cooler this phone would be if it were running the iOS or a more matured Android OS!

VERDICT:

The HTC Marketing team has screwed up an awesomely Engineered device by dumping its sponsored apps into the internal memory card. If you want to root the device, buy this. If you don't plan on rooting the device, please save yourself some frustration.

clarifications regarding explorer

this phone is probably going to be my android smartphone , off late I have spend a lot of time researching abt the phone & would clarify some issues regarding it

1) processor speed is 600 mhz compared to samsung galaxy y 800mhz but htc has done a excellent job by providing a separate graphics chip adreno 200. probably for the first a entry level phone with a separate graphics chip . We all know from our PC usage separate gpu makes a lot of difference.So the low speed of proccesor should not be an issue.

2) box does not contain headset probably a cost cutting measure from HTC , it would have been nice had they included it bit its not a deal breaker.

3) The back panels are interchangable which is going to be great ,the panels are already avavilable with htc uk website and the white one looks quite elegant.

4) The screen resolution is higher than that of galaxy y

5)It has HTC sense 3.5 , the latest version of htc user interface

If you are a person for whom quality is important then you could go for HTC explorer or if price is more important then you could go for galaxy y

Dont worry bout ANYTHING, blindly buy this for phone for ur first android experiene

All parts of the phone work flawlessly, the ear piece is gr8, the mic n rear loudspeaker is gr8, accelerometer n proximity sensor work gr8, no network problems no unforeseen software glitches at all. Just open the box n charge it n start using-this is d phone equivalent of hero honda splendour. THE BOX PACK INCLUDES EARPHONES AS STATED BY FLIPKART. Small things endear this phone to me, I dont need to hold phone to my ear when I call someone and listen to their dialer tune or tone, rather i hold phone in front of me and as soon as they pick up, as an indication, explorer will vibrate a bit,...

Just open the box n charge it n start using-this is d phone equivalent of hero honda splendour. THE BOX PACK INCLUDES EARPHONES AS STATED BY FLIPKART. Small things endear this phone to me, I dont need to hold phone to my ear when I call someone and listen to their dialer tune or tone, rather i hold phone in front of me and as soon as they pick up, as an indication, explorer will vibrate a bit, then i put phone to my ear.Also when i remove battery to swap sims i never need to keep resetting the time n date etc, phone automatically picks up time n date- ive used several samsung bada, sony ericcson, nokia n lg entry level phones none r so easy to use. smart dialing is just awesome- i have 500+ contacts n managing with smart dialing for names as well as numbers is just awesome.There's ability to block calls and also Fixed Dialing Number functionality for restricting outgoing calls when u give your phone to child or stranger.When u open web pages they download well enough and there is also text re-flow,also my eyes r slightly weak n there is pinch to zoom for sms messages which is just a life saver for me.The phone is elegant looking as well as rugged. touch response is fantastic too, music player app is good, rear loudspeaker has good volume but doesnt reproduce high bass properly.The screen is simply awesome at this price point. I was easily able to connect via wifi n download 4-5 simple games,(initially wasnt able to sign in to google play store-did a hard reset n then was easily able to sign into my google account) although here the 109 mb internal memory for apps is slight letdown but u can always download apps2sd n make some space available. FINALLY DONT LISTEN to anyone saying that samsung galaxy y or lg optimus L3 is better because specs wise all r same n HTC's screen is head and shoulders above them some say lg optimus L3 has 1 gb internal memory-that is false, "real" internal memory is only 157 mb for apps n games -1gb is just marketing gimmick.
