Rated 5 out of 5Â by coolboy My best android phone
this phone is the best and first android phone I have ever had.
Ever thing is perfect except the batter life it is very short. The
funny thing was that when I got the phone I brought the last
one in stock at romford.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JayyLee94 An affordable entry fee into the android market!!
The HTC Explorer is an extremely excellent mobile device providing the main requirements for any modern day teenager or adult. It contains everything you need from music,picture taking, and calls, to gaming, texting, and entertainment of all kinds!
I purchased this phone on pay as you go from the Vodafone store for Â£80. I am exceptionally pleased with the performance and screen size resolution, being a small device you would expect it to lack, however this mobile handles performance very well.
Almost everything about it is a pro, except for a couple of cons, which include poor camera quality and a low internal memory. But despite these down points the phone is a very good deal.
You may also wish to purchase a memory card of 8gb or more along with the HTC Explorer so apps can be moved on to the external storage space, giving the phone enough internal memory to function correctly.
Also a simple firmware released unofficially may be required to give the phone an extra boost, as it provides better features, including speeding up the processor by an advanced 100mh, plus wiping off the Vodafone software which at start up slows the phone down a lot! :)
The theme is then changed to a blue color which in my own personal opinion is much nicer. You can find this firmware by searching for Jaggyrom 3 on google, find the creator, follow his steps, and upgrade. :)
Thank you for reading my review, and I hope you will enjoy using this amazing phone.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by CiCi idk, it's ok.
I seriously wanted a HTC for a long time! All my friends had the older versions, so when my father walks in with the newest version, I was so pleased until...
I had this phone since april and i dropped it from my bed to my floor and it completely cracked the screen! (it's a standard size bed)
When I went to unlock the phone i couldn't do anything, even answer a call! it seems when you break it nothing works! Also rubber back wears and its expensive for a new one.
When a system update comes up, it takes ages. Internet usages is used easily is you don't turn it off between using it.
Doesn't connect to house hold internet.
Internal Memory always fills up quickly.
However, I think HTC is just not for me.
Maybe for someone who likes the internet and games but not for regular usage.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by AnonymousUser HTC Explorer Review
This phone only has 90 MB of storage, 512 MB of ROM and 512 MB of RAM which is quite small. This phone wiill run Temple Run or any high end graphical game.
After you install a few games along with your messages,photos and emails you will find the phone will start coming up with some annoying messages saying you memory is full and that you have to have an amount of space free for the phone to continue receiving messages which isn't handy.
Also when your phone's memory is low the phone will start glitching, HTC Sense will stop responding and your phone's OS will have to reboot (Which gets annoying when it happens every 20 mins until you clear space).
I would not recommend this phone if you are someone who likes to have all your messages, emails and web on the go or if you are a heavy app use as it comes with insufficient space

Rated 3 out of 5Â by NaLu Average
The phone is alright when it starts, but after a while 512 MB of internal memory is poor. It asks you to always delete/clear apps or photos on your phone to make enough space to run. With 90 MB of ram available it's poor as well. Your phone will guarantee turn off at the most random time. I recommend this phone if you're on a tight budget.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by SAQIB WORST INTERNAL MEMORY
ALL THE FEATURES ARE EXCELLENT APART FROM THE INTERNAL MEMORY AND CAMERA QUALITY. DUE TO LOW MEMORY CAPACITY I HAVE TO KEEP CLEARING THE CACHES WHICH IS THE MOST ANNOYING THING. LOW PRICED PHONE DOES NOT YOU SHOULD HAVE LOW QUALITY CAMERA. PLEASE IMPROVE.

I have chosen HTC Explorer as my first smart phone
and iam just surprised with features. The HTC Sense is providing the best UI layout and best customization.
But it crashes usually.
and second thing is about htcsense.com :
In my device's settings the location finder is enabled still it says its off....

It an awesome phone. Great features, excellent resolution and sensitive interface. Great value for money with a little compromise on battery & camera. Flash for camera should have been included.
