HTC Desire 700 Review

By -

HTC Desire series have always been a huge success. The new one should not be an exception as well. We love the way it looks, the way it behaves and the way you can interact with the new features on board. HTC Desire 700 is the new one in the Desire series. A mid ranged phone perfect for you.

Design

If HTC is known for something it is their stunning design and close to perfect built quality. On this one it takes total hold with that brilliant soft touch material. It just sits on your hands perfectly and grips it very well with the matte material. HTC Desire 700 is pretty thin and hence your hands and pockets will have no problem at all with its size. HTC Desire 700 is a job well done in design.

Display

HTC is under some pressure in many markets where the smaller budget smartphone makers are getting some good publicity with exciting features of which one is having 5 inch display. HTC has finally put up a 5 inch display in the mid-range phone. HTC Desire 700 has a qHD resolution 5 inch display. The display has a good look to it, it looks beautiful and it is trademark HTC sharp. Watching videos or texting for long should not be a challenge to you. The colours are really soothing to your eyes and it just stays with you.

Camera

HTC Desire 700 has a 8MP primary camera and a 2.1 MP front facing camera. The front facing camera takes excellent self-photographs and is pretty nice for video calls. The focus is on the primary 8MP sensor. HTC’s cameras are amazing and this one is no different. HTC Desire 700’s 8MP shooter takes beautiful images with great balance and importance to colour and detailing. It produces one of the better saturated images of all the mid-range phones. It can record seamless full HD video.

Software

HTC Sense 5 is pretty cool and one of the best and the cleanest user interfaces on an Android phone period. HTC Blinkfeed, an integral part of HTC’s new UI is a place where you get all your updates from the apps and with the newly releasing HTC Sense 6, you get health info as well. HTC Zoe is a new and easy way to click your photographs. It’s new burst mode not only captures photos but a short timeline trailer video as a memory. HTC Desire 700 runs on the Android v.4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Performance

HTC Desire 700 gets it functional juice and backup from the 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor and 1GB RAM. Games like Frontline Commando and Asphalt 7 work decently well but not seamlessly smooth. HTC Desire 700 gives you 8GB of internal memory and 64GB of expandable memory via microSD card.

Passion and Inspiration drives my life and I get them both from technology. Getting to write about it is an absolute bliss. The bliss comes from people reading what you want to convey. There is nothing better for a person than his views to be heard. I am a music, tv shows, movies and technological enthusiast.
