Display and Configuration

The large 4.3 inches WVGA (480 x 800) pixels resolution TFT display with 16M colour depth on the Desire 300 provides a pleasant visual experience. The device runs on the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. With regards to processing, the device possesses sufficient power thanks to 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core processor and 512MB RAM. Gaming is easy on the Desire 300 due to the capabilities of the Adreno 320 GPU.

Camera and Storage

Shutterbugs need not worry, since the device comes with a 5MP rear camera with LED flash and autofocus. The 0.3MP front camera provides video calling facility, Skype, etc . Internal storage is sufficient at 4GB, and can be expanded using microSD card, up to 64GB.

Connectivity and Battery

The device possesses good connectivity options, including 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS (with A-GPS) support and microUSB connectivity. A decent 1650mAh Li-ion battery provides 11 hours of talktime on 3G networks, and 625 hours of standby time.

Verdict

HTC is known for releasing handsets that are good on all fronts. The Desire 300, with its good Dual Core processor, good rear camera, great connectivity options and equally good memory, is no exception. If there is anything else to desire, it may be a display with qHD or higher resolution, but that does not necessarily mean the WVGA resolution is poor. In fact, given its other specs, this device is sure to prove highly desirable in its price segment.

    HTC\'s Desire range aims for the lower end of the market and the Desire 300 is at the bottom of its UK list, with specs scaled back just about as far as it dares. It has a less-than-HD screen, an unremarkable processor and low-end camera, but the price mean it\'s a bargain? Full review...
