We will not boasting about camera but this is good one in this price range phone. its secondary camera is only 0.3 megapixel but you can use it for video calling and I assure you that It will not desperate you.
It is less with all connectivity options including 3G, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hotspot, GPRS, EDGE and Bluetooth.

A Review in Short
The HTC desire 300 is an excellent phone with average size screen, okay processor and plus a nice camera better than our expectation. The good thing is its expandable storage and being touted a most affordable phone with stylish look. We would not say that you should order it without holding in your hands so you can wait for it to be available in the store. But, I am sure that it will suit your pocket. We played 3D games on this phones and found very sensitive touch.
The users showed positive impression towards to it. The unit is very lightweight, it fits comfortably in your hand and cover the back cover almost does not collect fingerprints. The quality of housing components and assembly at a high level. All fit tightly and does not cause problems. The power button is pressed clear and quiet, but the volume control wheel is recessed and almost non-existent to the touch. This, of course, negative.
During active operation, smartphone slightly heated in the upper part, but remains warm. The device could be made even smaller, given the free space that is left below the screen. I would also like to see in the Desire 300 backlit touch buttons and LED flash.
