The Taiwanese firm HTC expands its large collection of smartphones with the launch of a new terminal that is part of a basic range and could especially appeal to those users who want to get a new touch screen terminal equipped with basic services and at a price much more affordable than any other smartphone in high range . The new HTC Desire 400, that's how I have named , will be part of the international catalogs of HTC in the coming weeks . It comes with a large 4.3-inch screen and runs through a single processor, dual-core architecture , and ability to run at a clock frequency of 1 GHz This feature combined with 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB(iphone 5 cases) of internal memory that the user can use to store your personal files .
But these are not the features that catch our attention. One of its strong points is its ability to accommodate up to two SIM cards , which means that the user of this smartphone can take on the same team two lines of different mobile . At this provision , essential for those who want professional applications compatible with the personal , we must add the fact that the operating system is the head of Google icons . Yes , we can state that the new HTC Desire 400 works across Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) . We analyze thoroughly the technical performance of this new terminal .
Design and Display
If you look at previous editions of the Desire family, we realize that the new HTC Desire 400 no major changes to the design . Presents , yes, a dimension of 128 x 66.9 x 8.9 mm and weighs 120 grams with the battery included . This makes it a not too heavy or thick smartphone. With rounded edges , we have a team with a very nice touch , suitable for holding with one hand architecture. The rear, completely capped with a plastic structure consists of a smooth surface. We'll find out in three different colors: black , white and light blue, to choose according to the taste of each user, while the availability of each of these models depend on the brand itself and the service providers that choose to market .
The screen is one of its central elements , so should pay special attention. Occupies part of the front surface thanks to its dimensions of 4.3 inches (diagonal ) . The panel works through the Super LCD2 improved technology and has a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels , which will make this suitable for displaying HD content device. Finally, we must indicate that the screen has a pixel density of 217ppp (dots per inch) and a depth of 16 million colors. Do not include any extra glass ( Corning Gorilla type ) that can help protect the screen from impact or accidental scratch . Thus, the user will need to incorporate in its sole discretion screen protectors or other accessories that allow maintaining maximum optimum conditions the terminal.
In recent years , HTC has made every effort in getting their cameras smart devices are one of its hallmarks . And although this is a simple phone , the camera of this HTC Desire 400 is no slouch . Includes a five megapixel sensor that allows us to obtain good images of 2592 x 1944 pixels, maximum. To this , fundamental to any good camera that boasts feature, we would have to add other features that assist in securing the catch. We refer , of course, the LED flash, indispensable in low-light scenarios, the autofocus, geotagging and the detector face and smile . With this camera also have occasion to record video in a pretty good resolution ( 720p).
Memory and power
As an entry- smarpthone , we can not expect great things in the performance section . Still, the HTC Desire is planted with 400 dual-core processor , designed to operate at 1 GHz This feature combined with a RAM of 1 GB which is essential when running applications ( both simple and complex ) and use some programs with higher graphics load . As for the internal memory, we can state that the HTC device has 4 GB of space the user can use to store all types of files (images, videos, songs ... ) and even applications. Luckily , the most demanding users will have the opportunity to expand this capacity through microSD cards . The groove , specially equipped for this purpose, supports cards up to 64 GB.
Operating System and Applications
As I indicated at the beginning , the HTC Desire 400 (as part of the catalog of HTC phones ) runs through the operating system icons Google . In fact , it does through Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) , one of the most recent , but not the last , the Android ecosystem. In this case , it would have been interesting to bet on HTC higher. This does not mean that the team will not be updated , but we have to wait for the plans that the signature for this device. We should not forget that right now , the latest version of this platform is Android 4.4 ( KitKat ) and is optimized for simple devices : even for those who have little RAM, 512 MB just . However , HTC has built-in desk the classic interface HTC Sense 4(HTC One X Cases) , a layer that completely adapts terminal operation for functions, features and customizations own signature .
However, as a good Android handset , the HTC Desire leads 400 of the applications installed giving access to the main services of Google . We refer to Google Search, Google Now , Google Maps, Google Calendar , Gmail , YouTube , Picasa, Google+ , etc. . In addition , users can also access Google Play to download new apps, music and new features that will expand and enhance the native capabilities of the terminal. Are available to over 600,000 apps , including free and paid .
The HTC Desire is a well prepared 400 for telephone connectivity . Not compatible with LTE networks , but with the other protocols. This means that users who want to access the Internet through this computer can do so via 3G ( HSDPA 42 Mbps / HSUPA 5.76 Mbps ), WiFi 802.11 b / g / n , Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS with aGPS support and GLONASS . Another interesting feature is very useful for users who want to export media from the phone to a bigger screen such as , for example, the living room TV DLNA technology. In the area of physical connections , which is needed : an input of 3.5 millimeter headset, microUSB 2.0 connection and a microSD card slot that will allow us to expand the memory.
Music, video, photos and multimedia
Like any advanced terminal , this HTC Desire 400 is ready to play all kinds of multimedia files . This includes music , video and photos in the following formats : AAC , AMR , OGG , M4A , MID , MP3 , WAV , 3GP , 3G2 , MP4 , WMV and AVI . Combining these features is the FM Radio and Beats Audio sound system ( a classic in HTC devices ) that allow us to enjoy optimum sound experience . How could it be otherwise , users can also connect to other music services and video streaming such as Spotify ( Premium hiring mode and downloading the appropriate application ) or YouTube, one of the most popular platforms that users will find installed as standard on your HTC Desire 400(hello kitty phone cases).
The HTC Desire has a long-term autonomy thanks to its battery. This has a capacity of 1,800 milliamps, somewhat reduced for any smartphone, but enough when you consider the benefits ( processor and screen ) for this equipment . According to tests conducted by HTC itself according to official standards , this battery will be able to provide users with a duration of 12.1 hours talk time and 435 hours standby . Keep in mind that this ability can be affected by many external factors such as the functions each user maintains activated , the network status , temperature or battery status .
The new proposal HTC seems particularly aimed at a section of users who intends to renew its basic phone and purchase a given solvent , but still affordable . We highly value its wide 4.3-inch screen and processor and performance of your camera . We miss that HTC did not incorporate a battery with more capacity and operate the device through a version of Android as above ( Android 4.1.1). We hope that with the arrival of more news we can know the price that this device will have on the Spanish market and see whether the market will have a really affordable value.
