HTC Desire C

The HTC Desire C (codenamed Golf) is an Android smartphone manufactured by HTC. An entry-level device, the Desire C is patterned off other low-end HTC phones such as the Explorer and Wildfire S with 512 MB of RAM and a 600 MHz processor, but with features from recent HTC devices such as the One X including a similar design, Android 4.0 and Sense 4.0, Beats Audio, and support for NFC. The Desire C is available in three different color schemes—black, white, and red. The navigation keys on the front side are capacitive, but we didn't experience any problems with them. On the right is the volume rocker, which is also well-made. The same goes for the power/lock key on the top, although pressing it could feel better, because the notch for removing the back cover is situated there as well. It's not a major problem. Our sample came with full versions of both Kingsoft Office and Polaris Office, which seems like a bit of overkill, but grants you a choice of platforms to create and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint docs.
