Htc's designer died several month ago..after that htc never hired a new one )))) same awful design forever
This is like when HTC released the Legend, the Hero, and then the Aria here in the USA. They are the same specs nimberswise, but it is definitely an upgrade over the previous model.
The Aria ran a hell of a lot smoother and snappier than the Hero on the same processor speed.
Don't forget that these Desire C and Wildfire S handsets are displaying on 480x320 resolution sub-3.5in. displays. It cost the SoC next to nothing to feed compared to a 4.65in. 1280x720 display.
Also, this is an entry level phone. What did you expect?
The red accents hail from back when HTC wasn't boring. Remember when under the battery cover was Imola Red or Erratic Light Yellow
This is going to be another fail attempt for HTC to capture the low end market. Why ? 600 Mhz processor ? You must be kidding, HTC !
Alexei, 13 May 2012Explorer's CPU is Qualcomm MSM7227, it's an ARMv6 as wellI was hoping for an upgrade and i was looking at this phone. But, I'm disappointed now. I was expecting improvement in the processor. Come on....hope this isn't true. hope the specs change.
so this is a wildfire s with a bit bigger screen..... but way???????
FYI explorer's chipset is an S1 snapdragon chipset w/c means it has 600mhz cortex-a5(armv7) cpu and a enhanced adreno 200..
if this phone can run ICS, why not htc explorer with almost same specs. HTC should provide ics upgrade to explorer too.
Once an OEM always and OEM, that's HTC for you. What do they care about the market place, branding, brand loyaly, after sales service and support? Nothing. As long as they're squitting out product into any channel that buys, this is their mandate and mission. When will the Desire S get ICS, never. When will the One S become generally available - as and when. So the story goes on.
LMFAO.....FAIL!!! At that price I can get a huawei or zte with much better specs and vanilla android. Can't imagin just how slow this will run with sense on top of i.c.s !!
A 600MHz processor in this day and age... I thought the little bulge of the camera showed promise of a good camera, but how this thing is going to run..... >.
why the camera lens red. why need it red...whole design destroy this red color.red is uncultured color..i hate red.......booooring..
Its just me, or all the HTC phones looks like the same phone over and over... Some bigger some smaller but is the same boring desing since de HTC desire.
the funny thing is that this will have ICS on it, while the specs are worse than the original desire, which will never have it officially
processor Cortex A5 clock at 600mhz
Anonymous, 13 May 2012they have to make it so it will cost them something and not many people will buy it cause it i... morestill they will earn on it rather than updating older devices..
and you know eventually this will sell in lower end market as people looking at entry level will prefer it..
offcourse non-entry leveler will ditch this
