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 prici...

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....

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...

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...

Best Phone in this range and beyond

I have bought this phone from a local retailer for 8500 2 months back. In short, I can tell you go for it. You cant get better phone unless you want to spend at least 5k more.
Pros:
1.The best thing about this phone is the HTC Sense 3.5 UI on top of the Gingerbread 2.3.5 OS.
2.Rich display with a resolution(180s ppi) comparable to very high end phones. The display beats Samsung phones hands down. Galaxy Y, Galaxy Ace too are no match to this resolution and interface.
3.It has a 600Mhz proc...

Best phone in this range!

I have been using this phone for over 7 months and its still the best phone in this range. Very good build quality. Its 3.15MP camera is good enough for occasional photography. It's touch is smooth and responsive and it 600MHz scorpion processor makes the interface completely fluid and lag free. And guys the Adreno 200 GPU is overclocked, not the standard one. Its more than enough for casual gaming. Only major con for me is the 150MB internal memory which limits the number of apps you can ins...

HTC Explorer - An awesome experience till now

It's a very nice phone and perfect for people who are new to smartphones (like me). It has got a nice design, very sophisticated and classy. All the apps are simply gr8. I've downloaded another 10-12 apps from the android market, they are running good. The features which I liked d most are -
The phone has more than 150MB of phone memory, though it claimed to have only 90MB; it came with a 2GB micro sd card..one can also move his apps to the sd card, except a few apps which cannot be moved; th...
