Description

HTC Smart utilizes the Qualcomm's Brew Mobile Platform. The device is meant for the mass consumer and will use the Sense interface, which we are well acquainted with from the manufacturer's Windows Mobile and Android phones. It provides great personalization possibilities, as well as easy access to social networks. Naturally, an e-mail client is also present. The manufacturer's main idea is that HTC Smart should be cheap, so more people could afford it. This has naturally led to unimpressive characteristics - 2.8-inch QVGA display, 3-megapixel camera with fixed focus, 300MHz processor, 256MB RAM and 256MB ROM memory. Good news for the music fans is that HTC Smart has a 3.5 mm jack. Additionally, it offers a microSD slot and a miniUSB port for charging and connecting to a computer. HTC Smart is a quadband GSM, however it will only be able to use 3G networks in Europe and Asia.

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 143 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
