An output of the HTC Desire Series, the HTC Desire C is an engaging phone packed with a number of useful features. Like the HTC Desire phones preceding it, the Desire C comes in a candy bar form and is run on the intelligent Android v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The Android operating software is backed up by a 600 MHz Scorpion processor and an adequate 512 MB of RAM to ensure that apps on the mobile are run in an efficient manner.

The phone is aesthetically attractive to look at and possesses straight edges meeting up at well-rounded curves. The thickness of the device is 11.95 mm and it weighs in at a slight 98 g which makes it easy to hold in the palm of the hand. The Proximity sensor on the device switches off the display when the user takes a call while the Ambient Light sensor adjusts the brightness of the screen depending on the intensity of light in which it is held. Both these sensors enhance the usability of the phone while also serving to preserve battery power.

Fantastic and the BEST phone with in this budget, Loving it.

I've purchased this thru FlipKart, ( my 2nd transaction with FlipKart so far), they are very much prompt on the delivery. I'm delighted again. Its been a month I bought this phone and now I want to post my review after getting familiar with the phone. Of course its lengthy but these are my honest thoughts.
Like many, I was also confused initially to decide on which one to go for, as there are lot of Andorid models available in the market. This is my 1st Android. I've done a lot of researc...

HTC is simply best

HTC is the Best because it is HTC!
Find out why!... here is the reason....
HTC Wildfire was the first HTC that I have bought 2-2.5 years back. I was confused whether I should go for samsung which costs 11000 to 12000 having same configuration or slightly better configuration or buy HTC Wildfire by paying 1500 to 2000 Rs more. But when I watched demo of HTC sense(a proprietary HTC feature which adds significant value in user experience) on youtube and experienced actual demo piece at nearby C...

Awesome Phone in every expect.

Very good phone, I am fully satisfied with the features and performance. So let's start the review with cons.

1. Processor=> The only big con about this phone is 'processor' ie 600MHZ./But this processor not less than samsung 800-1GHz processor in. It can run heavy games such as temple run with no issue. But sometimes you will feel some lag.
2. Camera=> If you want a good camera then don't go for this phone. Camera in this phone has fixed focus. And picture qualtiy is not good in low li...

Best phone in this price range

It has been 2 days since I have got this phone. My first reaction at the box was: "Dude, its not the same box they shown in the unpacking videos in youtube", then after I opening I was least bothered about the box !!
1. Great looks size and shape wise, although 3.5 inch screen, still quite compact feel (unlike Samsung Ace and all its "duos" counterparts).
2. Good build quality, doesn't feel like cheap plastic material.
3. Sound quality MIND BLOWING, using the default player, added an ...

why u should buy htc desire c ! :)

I bought htc desire c a week ago and i am in love with my machine.\m/
Personally I think if you want to buy a decent phone with faboulous visuality, great battery life ,good performance during multi tasking ,then go and grab this one.
Desire C has nice experience over headphones due to beats audio system.

The competition is intense in this cost range and u get confused over which one to buy. We obviously have very high expectations and expecting everything from device we are going to buy and...

processor dont effect d runnin of d phone

the htc dezire c is a worthy phone. it has a processor of 600mhz but it only effects on d battery. while on performance is first class. it has a stunning look in polar white. plus a ice cream sandwich 4.0 which enable you to open a variety of android apps. still if u hav a problem go for a samsunge ace plus.
