The HTC Desire 700 comes as a viable alternative to the HTC One. It comes with a 5-inch qHD (960 x 540 pixels) display and runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The phone is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor. It has a 8-megapixel camera on the back with LED flash, BSI sensor, 28mm lens, F 2.0 aperture, HTC Zoe and 1080p video recording and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera with BSI sensor. The main camera can record 1080p video and has HTC Zoe support. The built-in storage is 8GB and there's a microSD card.
The device also has HTC BlinkFeed home screen and HTC BoomSound with Dual frontal stereo speakers with built-in amplifiers just like the HTC Desire 600 dual sim.
The HTC Desire 700 is a dual-SIM phone with HSPA support on the first SIM slot and GSM/EDGE on the second SIM slot. Both slots are of the micro variety. It gets its juice from a 2,100mAh Li-Po battery (rather small for a phone of this size) which is good for nearly 12 hours of 3G calls.
