Comment: Brilliant little phone from HTC with android 4.0 ics and HTC Sense 4.0. Everything about this device is brilliant with clear 3.5 screen, easy to use interface and loads more.
9.9/10, 5 stars.
Good: I think its good for showing off to friends and family!!!
Bad: It could be slow
Comment: Itcan be good for everyone aged anything
Bad: No good for bar codes
Comment: The camera has no autofocus, so can't focus on bar codes or QR codes. Google Shopper and Googles are not much good without this facitity IMHO
Comment: First foray into the world of smartphones, more than happy with this little device. A more powerful chip (3D gaming not recommended) and flash for the camera would be nice, but managed to get this very cheaply, so I'm satisfied.
Bad: Sometimes slow.
Comment: Well, well, well...The HTC Desire C is a great phone for children, teens and even adults.
If you want a cheap, easy to use and snappy phone this is the phone to get!
Had it for almost a month now and it hasn't got any dents or scratches anywhere.
My battery life lasts for over 1 day and it charges to 100% within 30 minutes.
The phone is really is great! Love it!
Good: Good cheap Android phone, compact
Bad: Battery life poor
Comment: Don't expect to spend very long using this phone before it needs a recharge.
Bad: Occasionally lags a bit but easy to live with
Comment: Got this for my thirteenth birthday and has functioned well (software wise) however TWICE I dropped it and cracked screen and replaced for twenty quid each time. Otherwise i have had no problems and is a good, less expensive, Ice-Cream-Sandwich-running smartphone.
Bad: to plastic
Comment: i think a lot of people are so judgmental about this mobile, it costs £70 what do you want the world in your hands?, i think its fantastic the music through headphones is quality, graphics are not to bad either, i also think gameplay is great dead zone and agent dash work like a treat, but like i said its only 70 pound for a mobile that has so much built in, even for this price you wouldn't think it would have ice cream sandwhitch in there to
well it gets the thumbs up for me
Good: Does what I want when it's working
Bad: Crashes/reboots several times a day
Comment: Great for a casual user. Too slow if you live your life by it. Mine has a problem of frequently crashing for no apparent reason. Supplier couldn't fix it, so cannot recommend this phone.
Good: it does what it was supposed to do: be a cheap phone with ics
Bad: the battery could have been a bit bigger+camera flash
Comment: it works very well considering the underclocked processor(altough there are some lags here and there but not major,unles you have many apps in background)
the build quality is amazing for the price(if you have a problem with the screen/back case then it means your phone is faulty)also the music quality is very good(there are slight hissing noises in the headphones but noticeable only on low volume)
for those who just want a cheap and good phone you can take in consideration this one
for those who want a quad-core performance,HD filming or other high-end features this one is not for you
