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.
