HTC Desire 300 Review

Desire—A Line of Gadgets You Trust

Bringing you snappy browsing speeds, HTC Music Channel and an always-refreshing home screen, the new HTC Desire 300 is an advanced yet affordable handset. “Desire” is one of the most popular and highly successful Smartphone series ever launched by a Taiwanese manufacturer of tablets and smartphones—High-Tech Computer Corporation (HTC). Starting with HTC Desire, in the year 2010, as the first member of this world-famous line of gadgets, there have been released many stylish cell phones, embellished with a number of super specifications. So far as OS (Operating System) is concerned, in the earliest member of this family there was installed Android 2.1 Éclair. However, the majority of the aspects in the latter versions of the Smartphone series (including software and hardware components) have been thoroughly redefined.

Desire 300 vs. Its Siblings

The ancestral hierarchy of HTC is fairly long; however, here we will just be dealing with a comparison and contrast of the present device with its immediate siblings. The latest models, like Desire 300, 501 and 700 Dual SIM are expected to be released simultaneously. If you order them with respect to the standard of specification, the 700 Dual SIM comes on the top as it supports two SIMs; contains larger, higher quality display; and higher data storage capacity. Placed on the second position, is the 501 model which has specs with intermediate values among its siblings. Though the 300 model comes on the lowest position, it has only minute differences with the Desire 501, particularly in terms of memory and camera resolution. The former is featured with 512 MB RAM, 4 GB internal memory and 5-MP camera. In the latter, on the other hand, the values of these specs are almost doubled, as it has 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory and 8-MP high resolution camera.

Large 4.3 Inch Display and Impressive Design

Its TFT capacitive touchscreen supports 16 M colors and is about 4.3 inch large to provide you an ultimate video watching experience on a crystal clear and high definition display. In order to enhance the ease of operation, the gadget is furnished with HTC Sense UI 5.0 technology and lets you make efficient use of multitouch gestures. Coming to its dimensions, the slim, sleek and smart handset measures just 10.1 mm in thickness and the beautifully rounded corners make it look even more elegant and attractive.

Memory Options

Though the RAM and internal & external memory options are not that much promising, but they can easily suffice the needs of an ordinary mobile phone user. The random access memory of 512 MB is enough to process multiple applications quite easily and within a short time. The 4 GB internal memory can store a large amount of audios, videos, documents, miscellaneous files and other kinds of data. However, even then if you fall short of the space, just get a 32 GB microSD card which will add almost 8 times more data storage capacity to it (32 GB).

Entertainment and Connectivity

Along with a micro-SIM facility, you can also enjoy the impressive connectivity standards of the 3rd generation networking technology. Here the latest 4.0 version the Bluetooth technology gives you faster than ever before data travelling speeds between two devices. In addition, it also has a standard 3.5 mm audio jack and the advanced 2.0 version of microUSB. The entertainment features include the front and backside video capturing components, where the latter is an auto focus, face detection, Geo-tagging camera with the high resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels. Amazingly, for many long hours of continuous enjoyment, the smart handset contains a powerful 1650 mAh Li-Ion battery which supports the talk time of over 11 hours, and the standby time extends for 625 hours. Wow, if you keep your phone on standby, the battery power can keep it on for as many as 26 days!

Bottom Line

To sum up, the Smartphone brings you a number of standard and highly impressive features within unbelievably low HTC Desire 300 price in Pakistan. Though other members of the Desire series by the same company are carrying more powerful features but, at the same time, they charge you much higher than this one. What, if you don’t have enough money to buy an expensive HTC set? So, it is better to have something than nothing at all; and it is not just something but a great thing.
