If you are low on budget and you want to buy a Android handset, then these two are great options. We will show you which one has better specs in the following head-to-head comparison. HTC Desire C

We won’t spend any time talking about them separately because we already reviewed them in a previous date, the HTC Desire C over here and the Samsung Galaxy Ace over here.

Storage capacity:

The HTC Desire C has 4 GB of internal storage while the Samsung Galaxy Ace has only 158 MB. Both have a microSD card slot, with the possibility of adding a card of up to 32 GB.

Processing power:

The HTC Desire C has a 600 MHz Cortex-A5 CPU with Adreno 200 GPU and 512 MB of RAM, while the Samsung Galaxy Ace has a 800 MHz ARM 11 CPU with the same Adreno 200 GPU but only 278 MB of RAM.

The difference between the CPUs isn’t so significant, but the Desire C has almost twice the amount of RAM on the Galaxy Ace.

Camera:

Both have 5 MP cameras capable of capturing VGA@24 FPS videos, but there is one major difference.  The Galaxy Ace has a autofocus camera, while the Desire C has a fixed  focus camera. Neither has a front facing camera, so video calling is out of the question for both.

Connectivity:

HTC Desire C: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot, GPRS/EDGE, 3G (HSDPA, 14.4 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps) , bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP, Optional NFC, microUSB v2.0, GPS with A-GPS support, microSD, up to 32 GB, 3.5 mm audio jack.

Samsung Galaxy Ace: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot, GPRS/EDGE, 3G (HSDPA, 7.2 Mbps), bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP, microUSB v2.0, GPS with A-GPS support, microSD, up to 32GB, 3.5 mm audio jack.

As you can see, the Desire C has better bluetooth, better 3G speeds and it can have NFC, while the Ace has only DLNA against the Desire C. Samsung Galaxy Ace

Design and build:

Both devices are quite simple, without any “wows”. The Desire C measures 107.2 x 60.6 x 12.3 mm and weighs 100 grams while the Galaxy Ace measures 112.4 x 59.9 x 11.5 mm and weighs 113 grams.

Screen:

Both have the same LCD screens, measuring 3.5 inches with resolutions of 320×480 pixels and a pixel density of 165 ppi.

Operating system:

The Desire C runs on Android 4.0 ICS, while the Galaxy Ace is stuck with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with no possibility of further upgrades.

Battery:

The HTC Desire C is powered by a standard 1230 mAh Li-Ion battery which is capable of providing up to 510 hours of stand-by time and 7 hours of talk-time.

The Samsung Galaxy S is powered by a standard 1350 mAh Li-Ion battery which is capable of providing up to 640 hours of stand-by time and 11 hours of talk-time.

Price:

HTC Desire C: 170 Pounds

Samsung Galaxy Ace: 135 Pounds

Conclusion:

I honestly think that the Desire C doesn’t worth the big difference between the price tags because it doesn’t provides many extra features against the Galaxy Ace. But it’s up to each one to choose its favorite.

If you want to go for the Desire C,  you can find the best deals over here.

Else, if you like the Galaxy Ace better you can surely find a deal that suits you over here.
