Beats by Dre audio technology makes the HTC Desire C brilliant at music. But there's more to it than that. It's also got the up-to-the-minute Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android, tons of apps, a great camera and a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen.
Measuring just 107.2 x 60.6 x 12.25 mm, the HTC Desire C is a very compact handset. But like its larger predecessors in the Desire range, it's positively jam-packed with features.
HTC phones are the only handsets to feature Beats by Dre audio. The Desire C is no exception. And that means you can expect the kind of rich, full sonic experience that you'd normally only get with a dedicated music player. And it adds an extra dimension to mobile gaming and movies too.
That's not all, though. Because this is an Android phone running the Ice Cream Sandwich version of Google's operating system, you'll get to pick from the very latest games and apps on offer at the Google Play downloads market. With tens of thousands to choose from, there really is something for everyone.
The Desire C also features a five-megapixel camera with video recording. And to store all your photos and clips, plus your music, HTC provides 25GB of cloud storage space via Dropbox.
Other features of the Desire C include Near Field Communications technology to allow you to pay for low-ticket items by simply swiping your phone over a reader, expandable memory via a microSD card slot and 4GB of on board storage.
