HTC Desire 700 gets 32 percent price cut, now available in India for Rs 22,500

htc-desire-700Back in December of last year, HTC launched the Desire 700 mid-range device alongside other Desire smartphones like Desire 501 and the Desire 601. Like most of the recent HTC smartphones, the Desire 700 was almost immediately criticized for the unreasonable high price tag of Rs 33,050. The device though has got a massive price cut and now retails at Rs 22,500, which in our opinion was how it should have been priced in the first place.

To recap on the specifications, the Desire 700 sports a 5-inch qHD (960×540 pixels) display and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. This is paired with 1GB of RAM along with 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 64GB using a microSD card.

On the photography front, it features an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED Flash and HTC Zoe support and a 2.1-megapixel snapper at the front. Other features include HTC BoomSound stereo speakers at the front, a 2,100mAh battery, which is said to be good enough for 11.6 hours of talktime and 582 hours on standby mode and connectivity options like dual-SIM card slots, 3G support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

On the software front, it runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean wrapped under HTC’s Sense UI.

    I think Samsung Galaxy SIII is a better buy in 23K. Galaxy S III is selling ~23K on most of the Indian Online Retailers.
