The HTC Explorer rises
The HTC Explorer is a low end Smartphone which is quite cheaper as compared to its main rivals. But the screen, RAM, processor of the HTC Explorer does compete with that of:
1: Blackberry Curve 9360
2: Samsung Galaxy Y
3: Samsung Galaxy Ace
We will give the HTC Explorer three stars out of five stars.
Mostly, the low end Smartphone’s which are cost effective are not built to last and sometimes made of cheap quality materials and consist of a simple construction. The prime focus on build quality and aesthetics is not given due consideration.
But all of this is wrong in the case of HTC Explorer which is a sturdy Smartphone and has an eye catching design too.
It is only 0.51 inches thick or 12.9 mm. the HTC Explorer feels strong and firm in your hands. The weight of the HTC Explorer Smartphone is 108 grams. It is quite featherweight just like the high end Samsung Galaxy SII. The low grade plastic is used and it is not as heavy as iPhone 4S. It falls in its own category of featherweight Smartphone’s.
The HTC Explorer has only real and physical buttons and the compact Smartphone factor is largely left untouched. There is a 3.5 mm headphone jack port as usual. There is also a USB charging port on the rounded edge finish.
There is a sleep/power button too which is located on the top of the Smartphone. There is a volume up and volume down controls on the right side of the HTC Explorer. The volume buttons falls in the range of the prime finger.
The controls are stiff and there are minimal accidental presses.
Build quality far exceeds its budget price point, so the HTC Explorer is a handset that exceeds expectations on the design front, with the rubberised rear panel giving the device its own distinctive and unique look that offers a reassuring feel of added grip in the hand.
The rear of the HTC Explorer is pretty uninspiring to say the least. The brushed metallic cutout brings quite some classy appeal to the low end Smartphone.
The back of the HTC Explorer is made up of rubber for smooth grip. It is prevented from scratches and knocks. But during the harder falls, it can not protect itself that much.
The touch sensitive controls are used instead of the physical controls. There is a home button, back button and options button available.
Google is readily available and the world of possibilities and applications awaits you.
