Take on the World with HTC Explorer – Review

The HTC Explorer is the latest small-sized Android from the handset maker. It is affordable and ideal for people who are looking for a compact phone or those looking for their first smartphone. Its outer shell is made of patterned plastic, which has a rubbery feel. This gives the phone a rugged feel. But in reality, the Explorer should not be dropped because it is not shock proof.


The HTC Explorer has rounded corners, which makes it feel like a pebble in the hand. It has Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread with Sense UI 3.5. Small in size, it does have heavy features, such as quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support, 600 MHz Snapdragon chipset, Cortex A5 CPU, 512MB RAM, Adreno 200 GPU, Wi-Fi ready, GPS with A-GPS connectivity, digital compass, 3 megapixel camera, VGA video recording of up to 24 fps, microUSB port, microSD slot, stereo FM, smart dialing, and Adobe Flash support.

But people find HTC Explorer’s CPU to be slow. It also has fixed-focus camera and has no document viewer. It also doesn’t have a video call camera. These disadvantages could turn off most consumers but its inexpensive price could attract those looking for their first smartphone. It is small and easy to use.
