HTC Explorer vs LG Optimus Net P690

Updated on August 15, 2013

The android phone market is growing large by the blink of the eye. So here is the best android phone under Rs.10000 (about 200$). I've shorlisted our two candidates - HTC Exlorer and LG Optimus NET P690.

HTC Explorer

The HTC Explorer is the only smart phone from HTC under Rs.10000. And they've packed in all the needed features. So here are the technical specifications of the HTC Explorer.

It comes with a 600 MHz Scorpion CPU. It has a 3.2 inch capacitative touch screen at a resolution of 320x480 and weighs only 108 gms.

THe HTC Explorer runs on Android 2.3 a.k.a Gingerbread. It has 3.15 megapixel camera which comes with face-detection and geo-tagging.

This handset also has SRS WOW enhancements. It also plays most of the audio and video formats. Explorer has a 1230MAh battery.

The Explorer supports 3G HSDPA at 14.4 mbps. It also supports Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hotspot, bluetooth and EDGE.

LG Optimus P690

The LG Optimus P690 is a very good smartphone from LG. It packs in a lot of features at a very affordable price tag. Here are the specs of LG Optimus P690.

It has a 800 MHz CPU and has a 3.2 inch capacitative touch screen at a resolution of 320x480. It is heavier than the Explorer and weighs 122 gms.

The LG Optimus P690 also runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. This phone too has a 3.15 megapixel camera with face-detection. But it doesn't have geo-tagging feature.

This phone too plays most of the audio and video formats but doesn't have any enhancements. Optimus Net has a 1500MAh battery.

Optimus supports 3G HSDPA at 3.6 mbps. This phone too supports Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hotspot, bluetooth and EDGE.

The Final Verdict

Even though the LG Optimus NET P690 looks better on paper the HTC Explorer beats it hands down. Explorer is less laggy, buggy and the user interface with HTC Sense 3.5 is way more user-friendly than the LG Optimus P690.

When you're buying a phone you dont look at the technical aspects. The more important thing should be the way the phone feels in your hand. The HTC Explorer is lighter and feels so much better than the LG Optimus NET P690.

So if you're buying a phone under Rs.10000 (about 200$) go for the HTC Explorer. It is a winner.

      LG Optimus P690 is a good phone. I agree. But the HTC Explorer, is comparatively more smoother than the Optimus P690. You should keep in mind that HTC Explorer has a processor of 600 MHz and LG Optimus has a processor of 800 MHz. So even though the P690 has a powerful processor it just gives performance of a 550 MHz processor.

      My LG Optimus Net is not 'Laggy' or 'Buggy'. It's very smooth.

      I really like HTC. My last phone was an HTC Pro Touch 2 that worked great until the touch screen became unresponsive. I tried to calibrate it multiple times but nothing worked. I still admit it was the best phone I had to date. Voted up!
