HTC Desire C Review
Said to be the close rival against BlackBerry Curve 9320, the HTC Desire C seems to the improvement of its predecessor Wildfire S. The HTC Desire C is bundled with a higher price tag than the Samsung Galaxy Y and LG Optimus L3. The 600MHz processor in Wildfire S is brought again into the HTC Desire C that is implanted with 512MB of RAM. Compared to the Wildfire S, the new HTC Desire C is built to own larger screen at 3.5-inches that delivers 320×480 resolutions.

With its measurement of its dimensions at 107.2 x 60.6 x 12.3 mm, the HTC Desire C becomes a great looking handset that can be perfectly molded into our palm, thanks to the rubberized curved chassis that makes the HTC Desire C easy to grip. With the 100 grams of weight, the HTC Desire C slightly beats the Wildfire S.
Turn your look below the screen, there are three capacitive buttons for multitasking, home, and back navigation. Flip the phone back, you will notice the appearing of Beats Audio logo decorates the bottom side while the upper side is docked with a centralized 5MP camera that has no flash support.
Travelling onto the edges, the HTC Desire C presents a 3.5mm headphone jack along with a power/lock key on the top edge and the only volume rocker switch set on the right edge.
The latest Google’s operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is preinstalled in the HTC Desire C that uses Sense 4.0 for achieving easy to use interface yet colorful. Under the hood, the 600MHz processor together with 512MB of RAM installed will handle all the multitasking. However, the quite slow CPU results noticeably slow and sluggish in general browsing experience.
The back cover protects the removable 1,230mAh battery that can be charged quickly, gaining from 50% to 90% in only half an hour.
