HTC had last month announced a budget Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone dubbed as Desire C with 600 Mhz Processor, 3.5 Inch Touch Screen and more. But when it appeared online in India, its price shattered its Budget Tag. HTC Desire C is now available in India for as much as the price of other famous smartphone from Samsung, Nokia, Motorola etc, Rs. 14,299 at BuyThePrice.com to be delivered in 3 working days.
According to me, the only positive feature is has is presence of Ice Cream Sandwich. Otherwise there are numerous better options in the market at a better price. For say, you can get the latest Defy XT by adding Rs. 1000 more in the price of HTC Desire C. Also the latest Dual SIM (GSM VERSION) from Samsung, the Samsung Galaxy ACE DUOS 6802 is priced at under Rs. 13,000. You can also get BlackBerry Curve’s (9220 & 9320 both) and Nokia Lumia 710 in this price range. Now the choice is yours, get a ICS Smartphone or….???
Just to refresh your memory a bit, the HTC Desire C comes with Qualcomm S1 Snapdragon 600Mhz processor, Android ICS 4.0, 512MB RAM, 3.5 Inch LCS Touch Display, 5MP shooter at the back and a VGA at front for Video Calling, 4GB Internal Memory and more. You can check more features here.
