The HTC Desire 500 specifications are pretty decent for the price tag. The Phone runs on a Quad core 1.2 GHz QUALCOMM Snapdragon 200 processor coupled with the Adreno 203 graphic unit. This phone might not be too fast but it’s fast enough. The Desire 500 offers 1GB RAM and 4GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 64 GB via microSD card. The phone operates on Android 4.1.2 Jellybean OS.
The display isn’t exactly the strongest aspect of this phone and is at best mediocre. The HTC Desire 500 features a WVGA 480x 800p 4.3 inch TFT capacitive touch screen with 217 ppi pixel density. Although the screen gives good viewing angles, the colours appear to be a little washed. HTC could have done a little better in terms of the screen.
The Desire 500 features an 8 MP clicker in the rear with LED flash, face detection and smile detection. In the front the phone sports a pretty decent 1.6 MP camera for video calling.
The HTC Desire 500 is powered by 1800 mAh battery and offers up to 12 hours of talk time on 3G network and up to 6.31 hours of internet browsing.
The HTC Desire 500 is all in all a pretty decent phone for the price tag it comes in. the display is a little disappointing but judging by the core specifications the disappointment can be overlooked.
