The HTC Explorer is decent entry level phone that offers little in the way of standout features. Despite this it’s still a worthwhile purchase for those simply looking for a phone they use to stay in contact, but love the idea of being able to hit...

The HTC Explorer is a little on the chunky side, but solidly built. It's quite small and not best suited to web browsing or text entry, and its camera isn't great. Still, it is attractively priced, and younger users or those who don’t need...

The Explorer is a fairly diddy device. It feels almost square in the hand and is a petite 102.8mm (about 4.05″) by 57.2mm (2.25″). The screen is 3.2″ but the resolution is only 320×480. I say “only” because I’m a...

If you've owned an Android phone before, the chances are that the Explorer is not really going to appeal, as its specification is too basic. However, if you're looking for handset that would serve as a sensible first dip into the world of...

It's not really an object of desire, but as a solidly built and well equipped introduction to smartphones, the HTC Explorer could end up on an awful lot of shopping lists this year, and rightfully so.SpecificationsSoftware : Android 2.3.5...

The HTC Explorer is aimed at those using a smart phone for the first time. We reckon this straightforward Android handset could find plenty of...

The advantage of a relatively low-powered screen and processor is that the modest 1230mAh battery should be able to go a few times round the block without a recharge and sure enough, this one gave a little over two days of consistent use. Indeed, the...

The HTC Explorer may well represent the future – phones that simply text and call are likely to disappear before long, if you can pick up a smartphone at this sort of price. So rather than bring out any of these simple handsets, HTC has come up...

Ever since the Aria, HTC have had a petite Android on offer and the HTC Explorer is the latest in the line. With an affordable price tag, the plucky little smartphone will appeal to people looking for a compact set or users who are just about...

The HTC Explorer is a dinky little thing. Pebble-shaped and mainly covered in hard-wearing rubber with a metallic embossed panel on the battery cover, it's amusing to see HTC equate 'first smart phone' with 'as potentially unbreakable as...

The HTC Explorer is priced at Rs.10,498, and at this price it competes with the likes of the Motorola Fire XT and the LG Optimus One. The XT was an absolute dud but the Optimus One is still going strong more than a year after its launch. However,...

Looking first at the Explorer's screen, we have a display that gives us low resolution image when compared to more expensive phones but it is an upgrade over the original Wildfire. The screen is a petite 3.2 inches, which coupled with a resolution...
