Excerpt: Battery is sometimes poor, but is ok. Camera for this money is great. I do not like the keyboard but not a flaw. Display is only good as a little slippery back cover. The preparation of the phone and I like the look and hand. Reception is better than for example iphone 4s. Sound quality during calls was good and nice to hear.
Summary: Great mobile phone. Worked without any issues and will good performance in USA on T-Mobiel sim. Later on when we moved to India it working without any issues at all with Vodafone in India. .. Good phone.
Summary: Dear sir/madam I am sorry to say that it all went properly at first. But recently some problems have shown up on my phone such us the camera ("Unable to launch the camera") which is dissapointing. This happens everytime I click on the application. I would be interested in knowing how to fix the problem or some other solutions. As you can imagine, i am upset as I bought it a month ago and is already having issues.
Excerpt: Very beautiful phone with good camera and music output.Everything works as it should.My only problem is heating when playing games or browsing sites with a lot of flash content (after 20 mins),so its definitively not a phone for gamers.Battery is decent and i love the blink feed,if only it had more local content.
Pros: Design, Camera, Display, Music output, Blink feed
Summary: The phone is sold under the title of the third generation network, but it is working under 2G network only. The phone works under wii-fi Nice little phone to keep in hand. Good screen. Has very little memory and u must use external memory card.
Excellent smartphone for getting things done easily and quickly

Excerpt: Don't waste Your money on super fancy stuff You will not use. Desire 500 has everithing an average user could want. It is honest and simple enough not to drive You mad in everiday use and the quad core processor makses sure no time is wasted during it. Buy a flip-up case just for a good measure to save the glass and incease handling, because without it the phone is just too slippery (hence the beauty of design).
Pros: extremely user friendly interface (intuitive), fabulous easy to use camera, perfect for quick day to day basic tasks, Sexy design, clever removable back cover that will not break all the clamps after a couple of openings.
Cons: in a cold moist climat touch screen get's a but picky., glass could be made of a better quality
Excerpt: my mobile is getting heating very quickly like 5 to 10 mins while gaming even which use less graphics . Mobile heated up where we keep our mobile near to ear while picking calls, that means the basic purpose of mobile is failing. i got replacement after many visits and calls to htc service center, even the new mobile having the same problem. I thick it is failure design. I recommend not to buy this mobile.
Pros: camera, display
Cons: heating while playing games, heating while watching videos
