HTC Desire C unboxing and hands on video

htc-desire-c-front-left-white-jpeg_2

HTC once again are in the budget smartphone market but this time with a little beauty.

The HTC Desire C runs Android 4.0 and comes with a price tag of about the £169.99 mark on Pay As You Go. I would imagine that on contract we will see this one at the £10 – £15 per month on a two year deal.

While the Desire C may not have the best specs compared to its brothers in the One Series it is bringing pretty good value to the table. With Sense 4.0 running smoothly, new smartphone users on a budget may well find the Android device of their dreams?

You can see the unboxing and hands on video below:

IMG_0254Now we’re onto one of the biggest features of the two phones and the two tightest areas of competition. Both the One X and SIII are equipped with 8 megapixel cameras, and while that might not be the top end you can buy in terms of pure pixel count, there’s much more to it than that. Both have sensors that are backed up with high quality optics and software to maximize the potential of the images produced to the point where images from both phones will already be some of the best you’ve seen.

But which is better? Read on to find out which one takes the camera crown.

Lamborghini getting in on the Android game

Lamborghini-TL700-Luxury-Android-3It would seem that some wealthy folks have more money than sense, because this next story is a real head-scratcher. When thinking of Lamborghini, most people envision a powerful, aggressive and masculine looking exotic sports car careening down winding European roads. That isn’t all they do because of course they are going to "cash in" on the celebrity of their brand name. Lamborghini has decided to jump into the Android smartphone and tablet industry as well. However, you would think that a high-end automobile manufacturer that competes with the likes of Ferrari and Porsche would actually go to the trouble of creating a high-end device, wouldn’t you? You would be mistaken in this instance.
