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.
