Beats Audio™ sound enhancement

Pay as you go
The HTC Desire C is a great little smartphone that packs a bigger punch than you'd think. It makes a great music player with Beats Audio™ built-in, is perfect for email and web browsing on the move with fast HSPA mobile internet, and it'll fit in your back pocket too.
Light, small, but still including a decent-sized 3.5" screen with vivid colours, the HTC Desire C non-NFC is portability and practicality rolled into one. You can check your emails, post on Facebook™, send some WhatsApps to organise your evening, and just throw it into a clutch bag or pocket, no matter how small. It's the same as the standard Desire C with looks, software and hardware, it just lacks NFC (Near Field Communications) capabilities.
Built-in Beats Audio™ for killer sounds.
If you're into your sounds, then Beats Audio™ is a technology you're going to love. It supercharges your audio, giving you crisper and thicker sounds that are more true to how the music was originally recorded. And now it works with all the audio you play through the included stereo headphones, from your own MP3s and videos, to YouTube and streamed movies.
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
That's right, your HTC Desire C comes with the latest version of Android. This makes it slicker and boosts battery life. And that's not all - there are brand new features too. There's a more accurate keyboard with smarter word recognition, and data usage charts to keep track of your 3G data. You'll also have access to the latest and best apps in the Google Play Store, and with HTC Sense you'll also get exclusive HTC-only apps.
Packing a snazzy little camera.
Never again will you miss those once in a lifetime shots. The HTC Desire C 5MP camera fires up almost instantly, and gives you great photos. On screen buttons make it fast and easy to take a photo or video, and there are advanced features like zoom and geo-tag, preset effects, and a cool photo editor that lets you adjust things like exposure, contrast, saturation and sharpness.
Tons of storage.
If you hate deleting things then the storage of the Desire C will be a real plus. 4GB of built-in storage can easily be extended with microSD cards up to 32GB. Not enough? Well there's 25GB of Dropbox cloud storage too, free for 2 years. Dropbox also makes it easy to share content from other devices such as tablets and computers.
A strong battery to power through your socialising.
