Verdict

This device by HTC is a low end device meant for those who look for a really basic device and dont expect much from their phone. It is good enough for light web browsing and social networking but anything more than that is too much. It has got decent sound quality though and the SRS enhancement works well to improve the sound quality you get from your headphones. The device has a decent built quality for a low end device and the small size makes it easy to handle.

Simplified life

The HTC Explorer is low end smartphone which is meant to handle absolutely basic jobs. It has got a small display which has a low resolution. It can handle your basic calling and texting jobs. You can run low end apps and web browser but multitasking is a strict no.

The phone measures 102.8 x 57.2 x 12.9 mm and has a weight of just 108 gms. It has a 3.2 inch TFT display and runs a Qualcomm chipset with a 600 MHz processor. It has an Adreno 200 GPU and 512 MB of RAM. The hardware is pretty low end so dont expect much from it. It runs an older version of android at Gingerbread 2.3 and they havent updated it to a newer version. It runs the HTC Sense UI 3.5 on top of it which improves the otherwise simple android interface.

For audio it gets SRS sound enhancement which considerably improves sound quality when listening through headphones. The build quality is decent for a low end device and the device doesnt feel exactly low end when you hold it. The Sense UI also helps evade the low end feel but the display is bad. You can easily spot the pixels and neither the colour replication nor the contrast levels are good.

Very good Entry Level Smartphone
10 Nov 2011 By Nayan Patel On flipkart.com

I purchased HTC Explorer about 10 days back after much searching and debating on buying this vs LG optimus net 690. nThis is my first smartphone and I must say that I am very much impressed with its performance so far.nnFirst of all, let me clear some doubts:nn1. There is no headset in the box (Roumors which say there are 2 versions of this phone - one with headset and one without- are totally false)n2. This has 150MB of internal ROM. ~45MB of which is already used by pre-loaded apps which cannot be removed (unless you root the phone). So, You have ~105MB available at the time of unboxing. (I know the box says 90MB but my phone had 105 MB "available Internal Storage")n3. You CAN install new apps on the SD card but some part of them will use up Internal storage. My calculations say that you can install at least 30 new apps on this phone. They are more than enough for me at any given point of time. If you want more, then you should probably think of increasing your budget and buy a high end phone.nnnAbout the Phone:nThe phone is quite small and fits perfectly in the pocket as well as hand. The back cover has a nice rugged feel about it and has a good grip. I find the 600MHz speed to be good enough for ANY "normal" activity. (Angrybirds ran without any lag). The touch sensitivity is also too good (better compared to LG P500 which my friend has). nnPros:n1. Excellent UI and graphics (HTC Trademark). n2. Some of the preloaded apps are nice and useful to me (gtalk, youtube, saavn - online music streamer, NDTV cricket)n3. Battery life is better than expected - I have been using the phone franatically since i bought it and the battery typically lasts 1 day (with WiFi ON ALL the time). I was surprised with the battery life because it only has 1230mA battery. I think the OS/UI has much better power management than some of the other phones.n4. GPS/WiFi Hotspot features - I think they are verry useful.. Battery life is also good with these features turned ON ( at least 5 hrs of non stop usage at full charge)nnCons:n1. Camera does not have autofocus.n2. No LED Flashn3. Some of the preloaded apps are crap . Unfortunately we cant remove them without rooting the phone :-( nnAll in all, I think this phone is a good value for money.

clarifications regarding explorer
09 Nov 2011 By uday kumar On flipkart.com

this phone is probably going to be my android smartphone , off late I have spend a lot of time researching abt the phone & would clarify some issues regarding itnn1) processor speed is 600 mhz compared to samsung galaxy y 800mhz but htc has done a excellent job by providing a separate graphics chip adreno 200. probably for the first a entry level phone with a separate graphics chip . We all know from our PC usage separate gpu makes a lot of difference.So the low speed of proccesor should not be an issue.nn2) box does not contain headset probably a cost cutting measure from HTC , it would have been nice had they included it bit its not a deal breaker.nn3) The back panels are interchangable which is going to be great ,the panels are already avavilable with htc uk website and the white one looks quite elegant.nn4) The screen resolution is higher than that of galaxy y nn5)It has HTC sense 3.5 , the latest version of htc user interfacennIf you are a person for whom quality is important then you could go for HTC explorer or if price is more important then you could go for galaxy y
