HTC Desire 700 Review – Middle End Phablet with Dual SIM support

I recently reviewed HTC Desire 601 and now its turn of the Desire 700. This is another newly launched HTC Android smartphone which supports Dual SIM card feature in order to attract customers in the Asia continent (mainly).

The overall design of the Desire 700 is almost equivalent to Desire 601 but still you can some minor changes. I’m going to share every detail of the device down here in the HTC Desire 700 review.

HTC Desire 700 Review

The HTC Desire 700 has got two loudspeakers on the both sides of the display (top and bottom) just like HTC Desire 601 or the parent HTC One. There are only two capacitive touch buttons on the front which comprise of home and back options. I personally liked the design of the HTC Desire 700 over HTC Desire 601.

The phone has got 5 inch display which makes it join the phablet line up in the market. The maximum resolution supported is 540×960 pixels and the multi touch feature is also there.

The display is added on TFT capacitive touch screen which may create a doubt on its quality but during my testing it was working well. Content was visible under direct sunlight and also at different viewing angles.


The Quad-Core processor is there on the front which is clocked at 1.2GHz and it is supported by 1GB of Ram and 8GB of internal storage. The storage can be expanded for maximum 64GB as well. I was expecting good performance from the device and my expectations turned out to be true.

It runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.3 operating system on which HTC Sense 5.0 skin has been added. The home screen has got HTC’s BlinkFeed and the overall user experience offered by the software is good.


The rear part has got an 8MP sharp shooter with auto focus and touch focus features. The rear camera is capable of recording full HD resolution videos and the front has got 2.1MP camera. The auto focus was working great while shooting and the picture quality were also impressive.


3G and 2G are supported along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and microUSB port. The device supports two SIM cards out of which only one can be working on 3G network. The download speed I was getting with 3G network was as just usual so overall data connectivity part is pretty good here.

Wrap up

The battery life is seriously not good. It ran only for 9 hours during my testing and which clearly shows that it can’t make a day with a single full charging. 2100mAh battery seems to be looking little less due to the increased size and resolution.

User experience offered by the device was good but battery life is still going to play a major part in its sales graph. Now you can make out if HTC Desire 700 suits you or not.
