HTC Desire 300 Review


The HTC Desire 300 is a new mid-range Android smartphone that is surprisingly well built and good looking, but is it as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside?…

Appealing design ; Vivid 4.3” display

Feels underpowered ; Middling camera

The HTC Desire 300 is an interesting device. On one hand, we are really fascinated by its clean curvacious design and just-right size for our hand, but on the other hand we are underwhelmed by its slow performance. Is the compromise worth it?

Overall, the HTC Desire 300 disappoints. The lackluster technical specs and an outdated version of the Android OS are classic signs of a budget device, yet even in this area the 300 doesn’t compete as well as it needs to. There are plenty of high...

HTC Desire 300 review


HTC's Desire range aims for the lower end of the market and theDesire 300 is at the bottom of its UK list, with specs scaled backjust about as far as it dares. It has a less-than-HD screen, anunremarkable processor and low-end camera, but the price...

HTC Desire 300 Review


Remember our HTC Desire 500 review? Well, this is the Desire 300, and it's a …. bit… different. The Desire 500 has a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU, an 8 megapixel and 1.6 megapixel camera.

HTC Desire - Mini Review


The HTC Desire really caught us off-guard. If I'm honest the HTC Legend looked to be the better handset when we first saw them both. It was the design of the Legend that won us over, but the sales of the Desire seem to have proved otherwise

Crap phone


The alarm doesn't even work if the ringer is turned down. Useless as a bedside alarm. The camera is awful, blurry and slow. Everything about this phone is slow and simple things like the radio dont even work. It freezes frequently and has no memory. I...

Very Cheap Phone.


Lucky I bought this phone for only $74 on sale at Big W because it is probably the worst HTC I have used. It freezes constantly and crashes out of applications and then my screen is blank and all you can see is the background. The internal memory only...
