Entry level HTC Desire 200 is official: 3.5
You know entry level when you see it, and the HTC Desire 200 is just that. It was made official today, and the specs are just as rumored - a 3.5" 320x480 display, 1 GHz Snapdragon S1, half a gig of RAM plus 4 GB of internal storage and a microSD slot for expansion. 

A fairly generous for the low-end spectrum 5 MP camera is on the back, though it's a fixed-focus unit that only does VGA video recording, and there is the obligatory Beats Audio branding, including on the in-ear headphones, though it's not clear if they come in the package.

HTC's Sense UI is on the Desire 200, and the phone has a 3G radio built-in, so it's a decent low-end offering that should be coming for very, very cheap in regions yet undisclosed, but in Asia or Europe, judging from the supported frequencies.

A low end smartphone doesn't mean you have to live with lag because you wanna pay less money !

A smartphone should be able to process simple tasks easily. I know android requires a lot more horse power to be able to run fluently but why make a phone if it can't ?

Do you see any other well known manufacturer releasing such poor specs in 2013 ? Even Samsung, who releases 1 phone every week, hasn't released such poor a phone

One would be better off buying Lumia series when aiming for low end smartphones.

I guess htc has some snapdragon s1 socs from 2010 lying around their factory and decided to bring out a wildfire S inspired phone along with the same resolution ram and camera lol. This should not be priced more than a $100 off contract. Oh and beats audio sucks donkey b@lls.

Beats audio sounds great from my Droid DNA. I am not sure how it sounds from headphones as much because it's mainly connected up to my car's radio. When I hook up any other smartphone (like a Galaxy S3 I used when my DNA had a shattered screen) it sounds like complete crap.

Reminds me with my old beautiful HTC Wildfire, this phone would be a great secondary device imo.

HTC's entry level phones still look better than anything Samsung has to offer.

And this was a flagship phone a couple years ago. All I see is a bunch of spoiled posters on here whom have been using smartphones for years. Title of the post says it all, "Entry level." This is something I'd buy for someone like my mom in a heartbeat.

Knowing HTC, this will still be more expensive than all the quadcore, HD/FullHd screen phones coming out of china nowdays................
