HTC First is a solid Android device released in April 2013, packing a 4.3 inches multi-touch capacitive screen, a powerful Dual-Core processing unit ticking at 1400 megahertz, and 2 cameras, a 5 MP back facing camera and a 1.6 megapixels front facing camera. But let's get into a bit more detail.

HTC decided to power this cellphone with a good performance 1.4 gigahertz Dual-Core processing unit, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 system chip and 1 GB of RAM. To help with graphic rendering, this cellphone also has a 450 MHz Adreno 305 graphic processing unit. The HTC First comes with a quite large 16 GB internal memory and though it doesn't count with an SD memory slot, it is enough to install hundreds of games and apps, although it probably wouldn't be suitable if you are fan of the heaviest games available nowadays or taking tons of photos and videos.

HTC made a great job making this phone weight only 4.37 oz. The HTC First is available in a wide range of color options: black, blue, red and white. This cellphone has an inspired design, with a thickness of just 0.35". While this cellphone just has 4.96" long and 2.56 inches wide, it's able to fit a a 4.3" display.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 5 MP back-facing camera and a 1.6 megapixels front-facing camera. It is also able to film videos in Full HD 1920x1080. This cellphone also features auto-focus and flash.

This cellphone has an astonishing 4.3" display with a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, providing this cellphone with a unique graphical experience. This display uses S-LCD 3 capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

This device packs a good 2000 mAh Li-Polymer battery providing the HTC First with a great battery life. HTC reports a talk time of 14.3 hs and a stand by time of 437 hours for this device.

This cellphone provides wi-fi connection (and it can be provided to other devices around, acting as a wireless modem), 4G (LTE) high performance internet connection or the fastest 3G connectivity, supported by HSPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The HTC First works with a Micro SIM card to use GSM services.

This cellphone also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (for communication with other devices, computers and accessories), GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your device close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This phone is a very good offer considering it's an amazing phone and it costs only $ 129. This phone is a good choice for you if you want this phone majorly for internet broswing and social networks, want a cellphone for work or want a cellphone for gaming.
