HTC Desire 700 Dual Sim

HTC Desire 700 Dual SimIn the past, the Desire line from the Taiwanese manufacturer HTC was reserved for their flagship devices, but let’s stop living in the past. Now, the HTC Desire smartphones are the working horse of the company and One gets all the glory.
But, with the HTC Desire 700 Dual Sim, things are a’changin’, a little bit, that is. Having a dual SIM “almost state of the art” smartphone would be pretty cool, don’t you think? Here, the Desire 700 comes into play. Ok, HTC compromised a little in order to keep the price low : there’s no more full-metal-jacket-unibody design, like in the top tier HTC One line, the screen resolution is lower but there are good news also : now, you have a removable back panel and hence, a removable battery. The screen got bigger, even if the resolution is only qHD. Okay, there’s no ultra-pixel camera, but the regular 8 MP shooter does its thing pretty good and the stereo speakers are still there, front mounted.
Basically, HTC did a wonderful job with the Desire 700 Dual SIM, let’s take a closer look, shall we?
The retail package is the usual from HTC, and it contains the A/C charger, the micro USB cable and a pair of earphones, nothing out of the ordinary.
The design of the Desire 700 resembles closely the already legendary HTC One, but only from distance. On a closer look, the premium feeling is gone baby, gone.

Weighing a respectable 149 grams and with a thickness of 10.3 mm, the Desire 700 looks reliable enough, with its glossy plastic body. On the front panel you will find the BoomSound tech speakers, which are excellent when it comes to watching movies or playing games on your smartphone. The back panel is curved and the frame that runs around the sides of the smartphone is made of a soft-rubbery plastic. Due to its curved design, the HTC Desire 700 feels great, but it’s almost impossible to use it single handed due to its sheer size.
Above the screen, you will find the speakers and the secondary camera, on the other side lie the ambient/proximity sensors and below the screen the capacitive buttons: Back and Home.
On the right side of the phone sit the traditional volume keys, and the top harbors the power button. Next to it, you’ll see the 3.5 mm headphone jack and on the bottom of the smartphone there’s a micro USB port. The back panel is home to the 8 MP camera lens and the LED flash. Removing the back cover, it reveals the 2100 mAh removable battery and the three slots: two SIM and a micro SD card.
The 5 incher display comes with qHD resolution, that means 540×960 pixels and with a decent 220ppi pixel density. The colors and viewing angles are pretty good for a LCD screen, above the average to say the least. The battery comes with an endurance rating of 52 hours and that’s not bad, especially since you can carry a spare with you at all times.
HTC Desire 700 Dual Sim HTC Desire 700 comes with Android 4.1.2 out of the box, augmented by the Sense user interface, version 5.5. In terms of hardware platform, the dual SIM beast is powered by a Chinese (Spreadtrum) made quad core CPU and 1 GB of RAM. The system on chip is a Shark version and features Cortex A7 cores, clocked at 1.2 GHz and a Mali 400 GPU. Basically, a cheaper version of the already old Snapdragon 400 SoC.
