HTC Desire 300

The HTC Desire 300 is a brilliant smartphone if you’re a music lover, app-a-holic or social networking nut. The excellent speakers are perfect for enjoying your favourite songs and movies.

The essential tech specs.

The HTC Desire 300 has a 1,650mAh battery, meaning you’ll get up to 625 hours of life on standby or 11 hours if you’re making phone calls. It’s powered by a 1GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 Play processor and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The phone has a 4.3” screen with a resolution of 480x800, giving a pixel density of 233 pixels per inch. You’ll also get a 5MP camera and 4GB internal storage that can be expanded by up to 32GB with a microSD card.

Your world at a glance.

The Desire 300 has HTC’s handy BlinkFeed™ home screen, which constantly streams personalised content to your phone. Featuring the most sought-after apps and popular content sources, you’ll stay in the loop with your social networks, favourite blogs, news, sports scores and more. Choose what you want to see on BlinkFeed™ and stay up-to-the-minute in a glance.

Double the power wherever you are.

Powering the HTC Desire 300 is a 1GHz dual core processor. With two cores your Desire 300 can do double the work of a single core chip, meaning it can load webpages faster, run multiple apps at once without lagging and offer super smooth video streaming. And don't forget, high end games are perfect too!

Ear-blowing authentic sounds.

If you need a soundtrack wherever you go, the HTC Desire 300 has you covered. With speakers that have been carefully tuned, all of your sounds will have enhanced bass, mids and treble so every album you own will sound its best. And even the software has also been perfected to make everything you listen to through your headphones sound great too.

Review 1 for HTC Desire 300
Great Phone
from Teesside
,10 March 2014
I have had this phone for three weeks now, the design is good and robust. Offers a good range of features I especially find the Blink-feed useful, can be a bit slow at times but for the price a really good phone, I would recommend it to anyone.

Review 3 for HTC Desire 300
Buy a Samsung instead
from Weston super Mare
,21 February 2014
Phone felt very light and did not feel robust.
Getting the phone back off is very difficult and likely to sustain broken nails or worse still a broken phone.
AFTER A FEW HOURS USE DECIDED TO SWAP IT FOR A SAMSUNG -MUCH BETTER.
