What would be a cell phone without a camera? HTC treats its mobile users with a 5 megapixel camera that comes with a LED flash and auto focus functionality. Video recordings and images are empowered with a WVGA high resolution. However, the downside of HTC Desire U is that it lacks a secondary camera hence you cannot enjoy making 3G video calls.
Memory wise, the mobile unit has a 4 GB internal memory which canbeexpanded for bigger storage using a Micro SD card slot of up to 32 GB. It is supported by 1650 mAh battery and weighs about 119 grams with its battery. You can listen to music through its 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack. It has Bluetooth connectivity, Wi Fi IEEE 802.11 b/g/n. It also comes with a 2.0 5-pin port for Micro USB connection.

Another downside from the Desire U is on its operating system. The Ice Cream Sandwich is already an obsolete version of the Android OS because the latter already released its latest operating system, the Jelly Bean this year which HTC should have used in their latest Smartphone models. Will upgrade be soon available is something we have to wait for the moment. As for its colors, the HTC Desire U is available in three color variants: Orange, White and Black. If you plan of owning one, you should prepare a budget of around $275 which is the expected price upon its release to the Taiwan market sometime the first quarter this year.
