HTC Explorer in the Test

Taiwanese HTC has until now kept away from the trend of really cheap Androids. With the new Explorer takes a step down the price ladder without thereby compete on really low price King Huawei.

With an introductory price of over SEK 1 500 is Explorer, HTC’s cheapest Android. Just like its predecessor, Wildfire’s so it’s about a telephone in the small size class. The phone, however, has lent his design language from its much larger and more luxurious cousin HTC Sensation.

This means that it has a design where the phone is put into a shell so that all joints ports around the screen, something the manufacturer usually call the “unibody design”. Unlike Tabloid metal casing is Explorer shell in rubber-like plastic. Not a bad choice at a cheaper handset and quality feeling is actually quite okay.

Is good in the hand

Rubber plastic is good in the hand and the phone feels almost as if it would be extra durable. But both name and appearance is deceiving. Explorer is not designed specifically for Explorer or adventurer without construction is rather a clever way to provide a low-cost handset a sense of quality, and no errors in it.

I really like the phone’s exterior but flimsiga gaps or protruding parts. Also the memory card slot is sitting inside the rubber shell but then shell go to pick on and off without your phone is switched off, it’s really no problem but rather a smart way to avoid an extra door on the outside of your phone.

A bit churlish, however, that HTC doesn’t ship with any memory card in the package. If you buy an extra card, you will only be able to take a few pictures with the camera before the phone’s internal memory is full. In the economy, their own words, names, HTC has also not submitted with any headset in the package.

Saved on the inside

Even on the inside, HTC has saved some; it shows directly on the camera lacks the autofocus and just takes pictures with three megapixel resolution. The camera has fixfokus, but when I try, I find it difficult to find any real sharpness at all in the pictures. It also does not help that the phone does not have a photo light and noise reduction adds a sense of water color of many images.

Screen resolution of 320 x 480 pixels is pretty normal in this size class, but the ports still a notch down on the scale when it comes to sharpness. But considering the price it makes his job and Explorer with its 3.2 inch display size will probably still not be video lover’s favorite.

Even though the processor from Qualcomm is clocked at 600 MHz, it feels quite modest phone decently fast, and it’s no problem to run around the operating system Android 2.3 and HTC’s own menu system of Sense in the latest version. Performance wise the phone enough for some simple gaming. Angry Birds set, for example, not to any problem without rendered soft and fine.

The phone can also handle flash and after an update via the Android Market, I started for example, svt Play set directly on your phone’s browser. Although the lowest quality. And if it should be something like that pleasurable to watch are simple talk shows preferable when too much action at the same time makes the phone gets hard to keep up. This has, for example, that only a few hundred more expensive Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini clear advantage with its slightly faster processor.

Explorer is completely okay media player but is not capable of very many file format from the start. Even with a more skilled player downloaded encounter Explorer on patrol when it comes to high-definition material. But without high-resolution display or to connect your phone to a tv so it will not be so restrictive.

Practical lock screen

Sense works really well in spite of the small screen and the Explorer has the same practical lock screen with shortcuts like their big brothers. This means that you can quickly access your favorite features like camera and messages directly when the phone is unlocked. Sense also has a number of smart built-in features such as Facebook with the opportunity to get their Facebook event to your phone’s calendar and your friends ‘ status updates and profile picture shows up in the phone’s address book.

Sense also includes a good widget to add speed dial to your favorite contacts, and HTC’s classic animated väderwidget, even if the latter for any reason must be switched on in particular. HTC’s app for transferring data from older phones via bluetooth is welcome on a phone Explorer, which perhaps is the first Android phone for many who therefore do not necessarily have all the contacts and messages stored at Google in the cloud.

No bargains

Aside from the camera as is HTC Explorer a pleasant acquaintance, for those who want a small phone with good quality feel of the hardware. Although the price of SEK 1 500 feels not like a bargain.There are phones with better performance in the same price range.
