How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The HTC Desire C is a basic Android smartphone that includes an updated version of Android (Ice Cream Sandwich), a microSD card for storage expansion, and an NFC chip for mobile payments and other services. Unfortunately, the Desire C also has a low-resolution 3.5-inch display, a very limited 5-megapixel camera, a sluggish processor, and poor battery life. U.S. customers looking for a bargain are unlikely to be tempted to pick one up, as it's currently only available as an unlocked model, selling for as much as $300.
